L by Ninjendo L by Ninjendo
L, the World's Greatest Detective with the World's Greatest Sweet Tooth. Death Note is an amazing manga and anime with an outstanding gripping story. L is one of the most interesting characters I've ever encountered!

It was quite challenging. Despite his basic outfit, it still required a lot of patience to shade every single crease in his baggy clothes.

POINTLESS FACT: For more inspiration, I drew two thirds of this picture in L's sitting position. Needless to say my legs got pretty tired but I felt awesome anyway :'D

Wow! This is really nice. The shading is amazingly fantastic! The hand closest to the food is very good, the other one is a little bit spidery. The food is really well done, and so is the creases in his jeans, as well as the armchair! I think the eyes should look the same way, it looks slightly awkward like this. But overall this piece is fantastic, especially how you have done the clothes. A picture to be proud of! Well done. :aww:

THE L OBSESSION CONTINUES. :P

Thanks so much for your detailed comments Cherry! LOL at 'spidery' I see what you mean now! And yes, the eyes do look a bit strange, it used to have highlights but eventually coloured over them because I didn't like the way it looked so maybe that's why they are staring in an awkward direction now! XD Thanks again!!

THE L OBSESSION IS INDEED CONTINUING
