Quick Question: could I get this in some smaller, easier to print chunks? Its proving to be obstinate

Sorry if I don't get it well, my english is not as good as it should, but if you mean to print the tutorial or make a printable of this, then of course, just don't forget to credit :)

I was reading the manga before the anime came, and when I saw it was to be animated I fanboyed a lot :D
L is my favorite character from Death Note too, and also my first name is Luis :)
