Near transformation~~

Hihi! Gem2niki desu~
Been lurking around this community for awhile ^^ I like to draw, so I'll try to post a few sketches once and a while~~

Anyway, I just like to point out this, if anyone cares or notice this as well.
I'm very picky with artist's styles especially when they start changing ^^ Well I notice Obata-san tends to change his character design gradually throughout the manga, especially in Death Note. The first one was L, which I couldn't get over for weeks, but now he looks hawt XD;; Now I'm seeing Near has also been changing and well, kinda wondering what is going on with Obata-san's mind ^^;;. Raito, to me, doesn't really change dramatically.

When Near first appeared in chapter 60, I was like "yay" he's soo hawt @_@
And then he got more facial expressions than I could ever imagine and creeped me out XD;; He starts to look really cartooony and notice how Obata-san got really lazy (?) rendering hair lines on him. Now he looks really flat with the hair.
On the fourth picture, he starts looking cool again~
And on the 6th scan from chapter 67, he got more hair line back again XD;;; But also, his hair starts looking like L? Doesn't it??? Compare to scan 1.

Then there's the hawt L before we actually see his face.. I thought he would look cool or something with that sorta wavy hair. But he end up having a very unique character design ^^

Ahaha dun mind me~~ I just like noticing these changes and its interesting since its only been 7 chapters since Near appeared!.
