How To Draw ‘L’ From ‘Death Note’ In Pencil

This art video shows a young artist drawing the character ‘L’ from the popular anime/manga series Death Note in a time lapsed format to cut the video length down.

You get the opportunity to see where to begin when drawing certain anime characters and this artist has used what I would deem a 2B pencil to concentrate on the nearest eye by beginning with drawing a faint outline until the proportions are correct before then going over it with the heavier thicker final lines.

The same technique is applied throughout the drawing although there is some shading work involved with the hair and areas within and around the eyes which gives the character a more 3D presence. So all you will need here to have a go yourself is quite simply a nice sketch pad, some medium to soft drawing pencils and an eraser to add highlights or scrub out what doesn’t look right, but most importantly just have fun and enjoy your art.

    3. I didn’t say he died at the end, I said AND the end (when Light dies, even though it was good because he is evil and stuff, but you know, he’s the main character and you get attached to that character whether good or evil… and also the fact that he will go to neither heaven nor hell, I just couldn’t imagine. And also the fact that it’s the end! :C) ;D

    6. I know exactly how you feel. I feel the same way when I pieckd up the guitar 3 years ago and then constantly lose inspiration after a few weeks. If you can drive, why not drive to different areas maybe 1 hour away and take pictures of other types of scenery. Get a new camera? Hey it works sometimes. Maybe you could even make a slideshow of photos and play music along to the photos. You could even take photos of your friends posing or just have fun in general. My friend likes to photograph different people and then compare them and see whats different about each person.Why not just go plain crazy?

    9. Silly youtuber, L wouldn’t put his real name in his youtube account.In fact, he probably wouldn’t leave any evidence whatsoever that the youtube account he used was related to him.Actually, I bet he would make his youtube account “Kira”, and see which commenter calls him a fake, specifically for this reason. If you use that logic, maybe I’m Light Yagami and this comment is something I will laugh to myself about behind L’s back.Then again, L is a fictional character.Or is he?

    10. What if he actually did sign in with his own name just to see how we react ? He might have deducted that we would fall for it. Maybe you’re L. and you have two accounts ( or a 1000 ) just to fool us . Maybe I’m L and I’m just testing out youtubers ….

    11. hm… the way you say that the L lawilet account is fake.. makes me consider something, what if the L lawilet account purposely did this to see the reaction he would get from the commenter but, also purposely commented on a video with not a great substantial amount of viewers, just in case “Kira” As they call him, was lurking on the low side of youtube…. hm
