So...I ran into an old friend, yesterday, and we decided to hang out and watch cartoons and catch up and generally have happy fun times. She's pretty crazy about this Death Note
thing, and was shocked and aghast that I'd never seen it (though a few years ago I read the pilot-issue of the comic.) So...We watched the first five episodes together, and then I decided I needed to actually get some sleep before work in the morning. While we were watching, I doodled this. Then tossed on a little color, later.
This happy fella is one Ryuk, a death spirit who first instigates the entire plot of Death Note
, and then apparently follows the characters around making sarcastic comments about their lifestyles. I feel inclined to like him.
...This show is hilarious, oh man. I couldn't stop laughing everytime they came in with the dramatic speeches and the Gothic choir. Gee, whillikers, it's silly.
Oh, hey, here is a wallpaper version
