How to Draw L Lawliet From Death Note

Step 1.

In this step we will draw out the basic structure of L Lawliet's body. Right now the hands look like mittens but that's my favorite guideline to make drawing hands easier. The most important thing about drawing faces from scratch is to make a circle along with a triangle bottom. After you make those, draw three basic horizontal lines for the face, nose and mouth. This is an essential way to make faces much easier. All manga artists use this basic frame to make their characters. Anyways, start drawing out shapes for the feet and the torso. After you have done, move on to the next step on how to draw L Lawliet.

Step 2.

In this easy step, we will draw the bottom hairlines for L's head. Draw two slightly curved lines for the beginning of the eyes. Add some stater fingers on the right hand. Sketch out some rough ruffles and outlines of the clothes. The lines that extend to the feet area should help you make the clothing easier. Don't forget to draw the beginning lining of the feet. After you have done this, start drawing out the lines for the bench that L is sitting on. You don't have to draw the bench for this image. You can draw him sitting on a couch, table, chair or even the ground. Let's proceed to the next step! L is waiting to be finished =33!

Step 3.

OK, now we will start drawing the facial features to L's head. Draw the horizontal direction of his hair. Remember, L doesn't have straight hair. It is spiky and flows horizontally as if the wind were blowing it. Draw the outside lines of the eyes. Later on we will be adding the pupils to these apathetic windows of L XD. Finish off the other ruffles and sides of his clothing. Draw the rest of the fingers on the right hand. Begin making some starting finger lines for the left hand. Finish off the rest of the toes too. And lastly, draw some of the bench too. Try not to lose yourself =P

Step 4.

Yes! This is my favorite step because we get to finish off L Lawliet's face. Look how his eyes are so dark and empty. That's the other thing is so awesome about this character. Draw the lasting inside ruffles of the jeans. Close up the ending lines to the left hand as well. Finish off the rest of L's awesome hairdo too. Lastly sketch out the rest of the bench. He owns the is his lair! He seeks out his prey deadly and silently with his menacing glare XDDD. Hah I'm just kidding. Exaggerating moments, who doesn't have them? =P We is almost done people!!

Step 5.

Sweeeeeeet, this is the last step to completing our victory! In this last and awesome step, we will end off the final details of the bench and clothing. Add the finishing ruffles to the jeans and shirt. Don't forget to add the bottom line for the collar of the shirt. Oh and add the neck for L, we don't want him to look like he has two chins! Actually L is considered to be underweight...even though he eats all those sweets. This amuses me, the power of Japanese manga!

Step 6.

People, I now announce to you, the final image of L Lawliet! Yeah, give yourself a pat on the back and a piece of chocolate. You have now accomplished the power of drawing L. Every fan girl drops to his knees and worships him. They have altars of him! Lawl...I'm just kidding people XDDD. If you didn't get him to come out like this then restart the tutorial. It's okay if you didn't draw him right the first time. That doesn't necessarily mean your a bad artist. Art takes a lot of practice. If you came out with the perfect L Lawliet then jump around and make some loud sounds. Don't forget to eat a twinky while you celebrate XD. Alrighty folks, it is time for me to go start my manga comics. They call my name!!

Welcome members and visitors! I present to the fan girls and…ahem boys, the most awesome character in the whole manga and anime galaxy, L Lawliet! Duh duh duh…we will be learning how to draw the apathetic and amazing character L Lawliet. He is my personal favorite out of the whole Death Note episodes. I watched the whole season. I don’t really like Near that much since he has a rather girly voice X33. But anyways, I’m sure most of the Death Note fans love this character the most. So I was watching both the movies of Death Note. These movies are real life people in Japan and aren’t anime. The L presented in those two films is pretty awesome too. He almost looked just like the anime L Lawliet. Light Yagami however is…umm…really ugly? He laughs like a duck, and has bad teeth. To be honest when he was screaming (because his girlfriend got shot,) I could see his teeth and all I thought was donkeys. The Light Yagami that is in anime is much better and cool too. Ahem…uh sorry for the cracks folks but it’s just my honest opinion. So anyways, let me discuss more about the awesome and unforgettable L Lawliet. For those who have not seen Death Note let me tell you about who he is and some of his character traits. L is supposed to be a very clever and intelligent being that is able to solve mysteries and unusual cases. He is a detective for supernatural cases and has a Japanese code name, Ryuuzaki or Ryusaki. He eats a lot of sweets and goodies and never gets fat from it. He is popular for his sluggish body movements and his weirdness. When I say weirdness I mean by his very delicate and careful way of holding things and biting on his thumb all the time. He is a very dedicated detective and is smart on a genius level. He believes that by sitting in a special way that he won’t lose 40% of his reasoning skills. Well I guess that’s pretty much it. All I can say is that L is the best weird manga and anime character in the entire universe XD. Ha he owns the whole Death Note series =D. Well, I wanted to share a treat with everyone and make this tutorial on how to draw L Lawliet step by step. I made sure it was easy enough for even the ten year olds. If you find it hard or have any suggestions make sure you leave me a comment. I hope you enjoy and like the tutorial…I know I did =33. Peace out people and have fun on this one. L Lawliet OWNS!!!
