'Life is Beautiful' by GhostLiger 'Life is Beautiful' by GhostLiger
This is my entry for :iconmoonlightart:'s "Life is beautiful" Contest.

The rules are to submit a deviation themed to the song of the same name by Sixx AM, or to the statement "Life is Beautiful"

I chose to do it to the statement and after much deliberations over what to do, I finally chose to do a fanart of L from Death Note.

There was a point when I though I would never be able to finish this... I was having major issues with the top picture of L and almost bottled it, but thanks to some help from :iconelectricfox5: (Particularly with the water) I finally got it done :w00t:

I am pleased with the way his hair came out... I was a bit more restrained with the highlight placement this time!

SPOILER WARNING!
The following part of this description contains spoilers for "Death Note: The Last Name" and "L: Change the World".
If you have not seen these movies, and do not wish to have the plot spoiled, then please stop reading here!

So, why did I choose L for this? Simple! I remembered that, at the end of "The Last Name" L's clever plan to foil Light had left him with just 23 days left to live, so it hit me... what would be going though his mind during those days?

So, I drew him pondering on how life is beautiful.

I actually watched L: Change the World, while this was already half coloured, and was pleased at how well the ending seemed to support the picture :D
