Death Note - L by Kazimerus Death Note - L by Kazimerus
I tried a different approach to coloring on this one. What do you think?
I'm still new to digital art, so i haven't decided on what style of coloring i like best.
Just need to keep trying new things.

Edit: Wow! Thanks for the 100+ Favorites guys! This really means a lot to me :)

Art by me, Kazimerus
L (Death Note) Tsugumi Ohba

Your welcome

I used a reference from the actual manga to draw this (like looking at the picture and drawing from that not like tracing or anything - some people misinterpret so i have to clarify)
 It just takes a lot of practice. You don't even want to know what my very first drawing of L looked like XD

and *checks gallery*
WHAT? How could you not like your art?!? (well then again, i'm sure every artist doesn't like their own art - don't kill me but i don't really like mine either :()
But yeah, i can't draw animals to save my life. And your traditional works are really good :)

Wait what
There is a Death Note manga?!?!
Asdfghjkl i must get it
What are the titles XD

And i know what you ean by looking at a reference pic
I do that alot
Observation drawings are my fav thing to do because i mae less mistakes
Especially when i have to draw full bodied cats or something

I want to draw anime so yeah
I guess i will need to do many drawings to be successful
I di few in the past but well
Yeah Xd

And i sort of a gree on that statement of yours
Nearly every artist hates ir dislikes their own work.
Most of my drawings end up in the bin coz im not satysgied 
I waste a lot of paper sometimes 
Poor trees DX

Im glad that you like my traditional stuff XD
My watchers preffer trafitional art than digital coz i cant draw on photoshop well yet haha

I started to deaw digitally since 2009
Not much practice
Traditionally i drew since i was two years old and now im 21

Sorry for writing you a novel XD

What? You didn't know? Did you just watch the anime? Yeah, the anime is based off the manga. 
If you want to read it, here's a link to a free scan…

And yeah, i use references for almost all my drawings except for a few where i just completely draw it from my head. I don't usually draw it exactly the same like this i mostly just have pose references to get proportions right, and draw something completely different from the thing i'm looking at so i don't just make an exact copy (and wow that was a long sentence -_-). I feel like references is a great way to learn though :)

If you want to draw anime (or anything at all), all you have to do is practice :) don't expect it to be perfect at first. I started drawing anime like 3-4 years ago and i'm still far from perfect. 

hahah yeah i throw a lot of drawings away too, poor trees :( i only know a few people who actually really like their own work so they're rare. 

and drawing on Photoshop takes practice. and it is really hard (for a noob like me). Even though i used Photoshop for this particular drawing, i switched programs. I us Paint Tool Sai now and i like a sooooo much better. It's a lot more user friendly and i personally think it makes my drawings look better too. I would check it out if you have time and still want to draw digitally. I'm no professional i just draw for fun and figure all this stuff out myself, but i can try and help you if you want. 

and i don't mind the long conversations, most people don't take the time to reply back.
