All right, let me start by saying that this is quite possibly my favourite piece of art on deviantart, it really is, I love the colours and the way you drew it, BRILLIANT! Okay, now for a more technical (and less fan-girl) review, the colours are very pure and provide a lot of contrast -something that one looks for with these characters- as well as a great definition of who's who (I've seen pieces where I can't tell the difference between L and Light). Secondly, you did a wonderful job of defining the personalities of the characters (without using the typical candy, Ryuk etc.) Now for a bit more fan-girling, I LOVE THAT L HAS NO SHIRT!! No seriously, I do think that it adds something to the piece, I don't know if this is just sex appeal, but whatever it is it is most certainly there. Another note, I find it wonderful that L is carrying the apple, it's very uncommon, and I think this just adds to the uniqueness of this art work, and I applaud you. Now finally I would like to touch up on the clothing and anatomy, first, the clothing and the detail in the clothing is spectacular, however Light's anatomy is a bit wonky, not by much, but something is there that just throws it off by a little bit. However, that should not worry you, it's really not that big of a deal, I just thought you should be aware, for future reference. Okay, that covers everything that I wanted to say (and squee) about. I hope you continue to make such fabulous art.

I love it.
I very much agree with the first critique in the way that you've made them as realistic as possible without detracting from the fact that they *are* anime char ... the exaggeration of folds in L's shirt is a fantastic example of this. More than necessary but still following a very natural pattern. This concept seems apart throughout the whole picture. In their wings, the angles of their feathers. In the shades of Light's abdomen as well
I also like how the light from the background bleeds shines through the cracks in the books, almost like the books itself is a mass of puzzle pieces. It's very eye-catching.
In general really, I actually very much like this picture. It was extremely well done.

The work done very nicely and with great accuracy. Very well matched colors ktoe attract the eye gaze, facial expression at high levels, perfectly reflects the nature of the form which gives the work depth because even though we do not focus all their attention on these faces, they blend into us over the head (at least in my case) .. Mina Kira says, "I am God, and it depends on me whether I die I want to be if you are still alive." The whole ideal. Work on and show that you can afford more. I congratulate the talent and hard work.

One word - wow! This piece is truly incredible. I can't get my eyes off all the immense details and brilliant, radiant colours. The semi-realism works perfectly with the characters. I'm in love with the way you draw clothing folds, by the way! It looks so realistic it could be a photo. I truly admire your skills! The colours really suit the characters and show their personalities, that is really well-done. And those wings... Absolutely beautiful! Now I just wish you could have Ryuk floating around somewhere in the background <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/let…" width="15" height="15" alt=":P" title=":P (Lick)"/>

I wish I could advise you on something to be improved, but I really cannot see anything wrong - it's so perfect!

I love this picture very much~The coloring and their pose are great and color are really well matched blue and red~They are very realistic and yet they still have their unique anime look.Also the wings are very nice touch along with Death Note.I also like the fact that L is the holding an apple and Light scythe.Outfit are unique and unlike other drawings that I saw this one is original.Very nice drawing one of the best I saw.Lines are great and colors blend rather well too!Colors are very eye-catching and there are a lot of details.Keep working hard~I love this picture~

Well, I really like this piece of art, of course it seems classic, though, maybe a bit the same perspective as lots of others have made.
It is like between good and evil, though I like that you have placed the Death Note in the middle, as they are fighting for it.
I like the way you make the characters, great job, though, I would like to say, that the red "dot" at Light's left (For the watchers) arm, seems a little too bright and eye-catching.
Also, Light's wing seems a little out of place, or is it just me.
I gotta hand it to you, your drawing style seems fantastic, and your concept with the apple really hands it to the series, the scythe is really well drawn, I must say, and it has a great difference from the original style, which gives it creativity.

I would say, that there are things that can be made better, though, it is a masterpiece, and I do surely enjoy it.
I hope you will look at this critique, since these are my trustful words.

Thank you for reading, and keep practicing to the perfect.

Cant't really give much of a truly honest critique because
I Love Death Note, but the shading, colors and art are so well done I can't think of anything negative to say except that I'm SO..........DAMN.........JEALOUS.......................................................................God, they're too hot.
Seriously, great job all around though!
The perfect picture to show to someone who hasn't seen or heard of Death Note (and doesn't care about substance over pretty boys) to get them to watch or read it. Can't come up with anything else to say so to reach the 100 word minimum I will do this: I LOVE L and LIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Beautiful! It made me tear up when i thought of the ending of Death note! Such a pitiful ending really. L is the solemn lazy angel and Light is the fallen angel turned devil. Its truly amazing how you captured the complexity of there relationship. You've captured a very meaningful portrait. The colors are vibrant enough to not seem morbid but dark enough to cast a dark aura about the whole. ensemble. I love how L is holding an apple. A humorous gesture. I truly look forward to more of your very unique style.

A critique for you. Lovely Job~

>.> This is a super beautiful piece.. There's just one tiny little thing that I feel I should point out, simply because it's bugging me. Light's wing looks murky and transparent and lacks the amount of contrast that L's has. I don't know if this was done on purpose, but it comes off looking a little hurried..

I love the sort of balanced look that it gives off. And I know that this might be unnecessary for me to say, since others have said it as well, but I also love the realism with which the characters are drawn. I appreciate the meticulous detail and unlike a lot of fanart, it's refreshing and pleasing to the eye.

Wow you've really pulled off something no one else could've possibly thought of. You made L more defined as a character instead of making him all cutesy, naive, and just plain dumb sometimes. I absolutely love this piece, even Light is gorgeous as well. I also like the fact the the piece is very soft and yet it has a deep, harsh meaning. The light tones of red and blue make it very visual and appealing to the eye, plus it brings out the characters. The colors as a whole are absolutely beautiful. This is definitely how I would picture them as a realistic style. Keep up the awsome work I'll look forward to seeing more pieces like this!!

You have a very nice work of art here! I love that it is very realistic, much like a lot of your other art, as far as I can tell. I think you have a nice balance with their contrasts in color, with the blue and red. I'm a huge fan of Death Note and I love to look at a ton of fanart for it, but I don't think very many people can quite catch their sort of 'vibe', or 'theme', like you are able to. I hope you'll continue to make wonderful art like this piece in the future. <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/s/s…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" title=":) (Smile)"/>

I think this piece of art is truly amazing. A lot of people go for the classic look of them two, you know L with candy or something, etc. but you truly have made them shine in a way. I love how you drew them in a very realistic way, but still kept them very cartoon-ish. The lines are great, there is a lot of detail which is very good, and the colors blend and match perfectly. I love the art is very radiant, very eye-catching, and very unique. I love it!

Keep working hard, and improve your skill's gradually.

It's more an anime/manga-ish drawing not cartoon.
KawaiiNanaChan1's avatar
I don't think this is anime or manga actually. I watched Death Note, and I know that it's an anime, but this piece doesn't quite fit in that category ^_^ at least not to me, but that's just my opinion.
CMWVisualArts's avatar
I think that the Originality rating is about one star too high. Mostly because this is a fanart.
KawaiiNanaChan1's avatar
Fanart, or not, I was mostly talking about the way the person drew it :)
kmlacida's avatar
I agree... :)

Maybe we're talking about Originality as a fan art? I mean who would draw L and Light side by side with light coming from the middle and both of them holding something that represents themselves?

i don't think this was a critique.. it's just a praising comment to be posted at the top. i think critiques points out the good and the bad and telling how to turn the bad into good. I'm not one thats good at giving critiques unless they're inexperienced but sakimichan is far from it so I myself cannot see the flaws currently.
rena-kawaii's avatar
o_O i didn't know ? Besides , i didn't find anything bad in it anywayz .. i didn't really know ^^' srry besides , this one was a long time ago .
ChillarmyEkaki's avatar
