As a little kid growing up, I have to say I always adored the "Precious Moments" style for it's cute chibi-like children with the teardrop eyes. Since my grandmother works at the Hallmark store, she buys me almost every year, a "Precious Moments" porcelain collectible for me to keep. (I rarely display them now because they're a pain to keep up with when dusting my room)
So, I thought I would do something different and make little Precious Moments children out of the Death Note crew. And if you noticed, I condensed Ryuk to look more like a cute and adorable dog-like pet rather than a larger-than-Light shinigami from the anime. He looks more huggable that way. I also made him licking Light's neon-orange apple pen btw.
Misa's outfit I thought would be difficult, since I knew I had to draw her vogue without destroying the innocence of the Precious Moments style....that's when I decided to make her dress have some Gothic Lolita lace dress that wasn't too revealing.
If I had to pick favorites, I guess it would have to be Mello. I love how his adorable pose came out.
