Yay! I drew this one entirely on my own with no resource images save looking up a picture of Ryuk to see how his face went (he's harder to memorize than Misa, L, and Light are). This explains why Misa's arm is completely turned the wrong way to hold her other one... I realized that as soon as I'd colored it that I had her hand cupping her arm the wrong way. So forgive me, but I was lazy and didn't want to correct it. Next time, I'll examine my own posture more carefully.
This was another DN image drawn for my girlfriend, also to send up with her graduation present. Well, it was FINISHED for her. I started this as a sketch back in April or May during my 6th period extra study class back before I graduated (I just felt like drawing and ended up drawing Misa in my usual shojo style, then L in the way he was in my head... Light and Ryuk are closer to the DN manga designs) and kept the sketch to scan in and post as a scrap. I found it a few weeks later and liked it enough to scan it and trace + color it in Photoshop for her. She loves L, and I love drawing Misa, so it was fun. I enjoyed this whole piece just because their expressions are so funny. Misa is creeped out by L, who's the ultimate pervert in this scene. I'd want a look, too, L, if Misa was wearing that top (shamelessly sexed up for my gf and me as well XD). Of course, Light is pissed (is it because L's all over his girlfriend, or his boyfriend is all over Misa?!) and Ryuk sits there and laughs.
I didn't know what to do with the background, but oh well. I didn't want to just leave it white, but maybe I should have... *sigh* I hope everyone else likes it!
