File was built for the cover of Konami's "2011 Yu-Gi-Oh! Product Catalog" The initial cartoon was entirely based on an "Egyptian" style theme with much of the collateral showcasing heavy hieroglyphic type symbols. This year in Yu-Gi-Oh! a new iteration was unveiled. This version of the cartoon had heavy cosmic/space type themes.
In an attempt to keep the themes of the 2 version closely related( Egypt and Space), a concept was conceived of using "Alien" type symbols in the stone etching to replace the hieroglyphs. Heavily influenced by crop circles type imagery, the piece feature the symbols etched into a futuristic type material. The dark stone itself has a hand built cosmic galaxy that subtly fills the darker black sections. This galaxy design was feature throughout the rest of the 2011 designs.
