My redraw of this: [link]
I've been wanting to redraw this for a very long time. I'm working on the background now, but I wanted to upload this while I was still feeling good about it. I'm going to draw CC and Ryuk on the computer to really show my progress.
It seems I'm doing a bit better coloring digitally. I still stink, and I'm still a bit bad with posing, but it's still a lot better than a few years ago.
I found the Death Note stock on google. I'm still working on inserting things on a PS document. Things were shaky, but at least it's there.
I made the hair shading and strands as simple as I could...this shows that I'm still bad with coloring with lineart. I'm still working on making a lineart not look all "liney" (I hope you understand what this means).
The big problem is that I don't know what Lelouch's costume looks like from behind. One cosplay site says it looks one way, and another says otherwise.
I'll shut up now.
