Hi everyone and welcome to my tutorial on how to draw Light Yagami from the Japanese anime series Death Note. I watch this show every night on Adult Swim, I didn’t like it too much at first, but after a while I just got into it big time. This series was created by Tsugumi Ohba and illustrated by Takeshi Obata. From what I know the show is centered on a high school student who finds a strange black notebook that has supernatural powers. Now, the notebook gives him the ability to kill anyone he wants just by writing down the persons name inside of the note book and by thinking of his or her face. The student of course is Light Yagami, and instead of using the deadly notebook for bad things he tries to rid the world of all evil to make it pure and peaceful. The name of the series comes from the book, a notebook that can kill people hence “Death Note”. The names of the different characters in the Japanese Manga series are as follows; first you have the main character which is Light Yagami, then you have L, which is the world’s best detective who also happens to be Light Yagami’s arch enemy, Misa Amane who happens to be a pop icon in Japan, she is very immature and she also has a gigantic crush on Kira, next we have Mello, he is an orphan that grew up in Watari’s shelter for gifted children, Near is another orphan that grew up with Mello in the same shelter, he is also L’s successor and refers to himself as “N”, Teru Mikami is a character that shares most of his idea’s and priority’s as Kira. That is all the names of the people involved in the Death Note series, but now there is a whole new list of characters called Shinigami or “Death Gods” the first death god is a disturbing looking being called Ryuk, he reminds me of Hades from the Hercules movie. Next there is Rem, this Death God is actually a female who started off having two death notes, but she later gives one to Misa. Finally after her there is Sidoh, he is the third Shinigami that has been seen in the human world, this character is the original owner of the Death Note which was dropped in the beginning of the series and eventually picked up by Light Yagami. The series is an intense show that is overwhelmingly addictive. This tutorial will show you "how to draw Light Yagami" from Death Note step by step. The instructions are super easy and you will soon be on your way to drawing your very own Death Note character.

How to Draw Light Yagami

how to draw light yagami from death note step 1

STEP 1.

In this first step you are going to draw the guidelines and circle shapes of Light Yagami. Starting at the top draw an egg shape for the head and sketch the facial guidelines in the middle. Next draw a box shape for his torso and then draw the outlines for his legs, feet, arms, and jacket. This completes step 1.

STEP 2.

Next what you are going to do is start detailing the definition on his head by sketching in his hair. Then you can start drawing in his nose, eyes, and mouth. On the left side of the image sketch in the details in his jacket sleeve and hand. Next detail his jacket at the top collar and work your way down to the bottom of the shirt and on the left side of his pants. Make sure you sketch in those loose looking wrinkles to really make them look like a pair of pants. Detail and draw in the Death Note and detail the shoes a bit. This will conclude step 2.

After those details are sketched in draw in the buttons and button holes on the jacket as well. Detail the left side of his pants a bit more. This concludes step 3.

This is going to be your last step of drawing and sketching. All you have to do here is sketch in some minor detailing on the right pant leg and shoe. After your image looks like the one above you can go ahead and erase all the guidelines and circle shapes that you drew in step 1.
