The Final Justice

"S...Someone...It hurts...What do I do...?"


Well, if you didn't notice already--this is a spoiler if you haven't finished watching Death Note yet. So if you don't want to be spoiled even more, then don't read on.

My thoughts: This was the only moment in the anime where I truly felt sorry for Light--because he was just so lost in his ideals, he had no idea the magnitude of what he had done, so all he could do was hope that he'd get some miracle; at the same time, he didn't know who to turn to, however. But if you ask me, I say that Light deserved every bit of what he got at the end. His intentions may have been good, but he was pretty much bound for absolute corruption. As the show went on, he gradually became what he wished to purge the world of. My brother even pointed out that as the episodes progress--the suits he wears get darker and his hair and eyes get more of a shade of red. And that is why, I absolutely love Light. =3 He's a wonderful character.

So I drew this moment where he was on the ground begging for help, because I was so taken by it. That and I wanted to practice expression and lighting with this picture. And I'm actually satisfied with the final result.

    Wow. Just amazing. I felt a lot of pity for him at that point too, you really captured it welll. He looks so desperate.
    Yup, Death Note is one of those animes that doesn't leave you with a warm fuzzy feeling when you finish it, but a desolate lost feeling.

    The road to Hell is paved with good intentions... you really captured that here.

    Wow, that's amazing. The eye is probably my favourite part. He looks like he's in such pain!

    Which of course is good since that was probably your intension. xD

    This is amazing work, love you decided to get a close up shot of his face -- really creates an impact. He looks like he's in so much anguish.

    And I have to agree with your statement -- Light basically did turn into what he wanted to destroy, ironic. I also loved how it was actually Ryuk who wrote his name in the book. But I wanted to know is what happens to someone who uses the Death Note after they die. Early on Ryuk mentioned that Light would not be allowed to go to heaven (and i think he would even be able to get into hell). So I wonder if they turn into Shinigami?

    I like this piece. You was able to illustrate his last moment of life truly well.
