I love death note art, especially when it’s framed in a way that gives me something to talk about.
I like that it’s very abstract and I can take a look at the subject matter and see a picture or two of my favorite character.
But death note illustrations, on the other hand, are pretty limited and the way they’re framed can make you feel like you’re watching a movie in real time.
And when I see a death note illustration, I feel like I’m in a movie.
But the death note, you see, is more of a reflection of the characters thoughts and feelings than of a real person’s.
Death note illustrations can be incredibly interesting, and I’d love to see a full-on animated film that features death note images.
In fact, I think that would be something worth seeing.
The artist behind the images, who goes by the name “Toby” in this post, uses a variety of different mediums for his artwork, from charcoal, acrylic, and paper to oil, clay, and acrylic.
I’ve included the most iconic death note designs below, but I’d also like to point out that he’s created quite a few more.
The ones below are all from Toby, who calls himself a “composer” and uses the term “composition” in a rather tongue-in-cheek way.
If you like his work, you can purchase Toby’s art on his website here, and if you’d like to get in on the action, he’s also made a death mask for sale on his site.
If you want to learn more about Toby’s work, check out his Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook pages.
