Can You Hear the Bells? by Akyesein Can You Hear the Bells? by Akyesein
Felt like drawing L for the sole reason that I've had the phrase "Can you hear the bells" going through my head all day. *sigh* I need to rewatch Death Note.

I realize that the proportions are a bit off. I wasn't really trying to make it perfect. I'm relatively happy with it.

This is also my first time drawing rain. I think it looks ok.

You decide if he's crying, or if it's just the rain.

I don't know much about this anime, but you captured a great emotion there. The pose is wonderful, and I like how the rain actually looks like rain. Not many people can pull that off.

I felt so bad for L when he died, though in a way he at least got satisfied knowing who Kira really was before he passed away. In the end Kira got what he deserved as well. All in all, it was a very deep series, so you couldn't really have a complete hero or villian for that matter-except maybe Ryuk... After all Light and L kind of both were striving for justice and peace.

I've only got to see the first series, and half of the second series. Have never read the manga... :(

This was one of my favorite scenes though, really nice work for this being your first time doing rain. I couldn't even begin to imagine drawing something like this. xD He has this expression like he knows what is going to happen, and your proportions aren't that off. I like this a lot. ^^
