Holy hell. It's Mello cross-dressing.

I couldn't help myself.

Once again, it is a visual derived from Tierfal's "The End Is Near." Man, does she think up some interesting getups.


Androgynous people are so hard to draw! I was going back and forth between female and male body ref dolls...

Slightly broader shoulders than a woman and a squarer jaw. Deltoids are a little more prominent.

But hopefully, in the end, it looks ambiguous enough.


Time: Hour and a half?
Materials: Mechanical pencil and *gasp* an actual sketching pad!

let me just say, I finally finished The End is Near and I seriously considered it to be the funniest death note fanfic I've ever read. but this picture... something about this picture scares me, man, it just looks so... my god, you couldn't have drawn Mello cross-dressing better! xD

So, when I clicked to this link, I didn't know what to expect. At first, I just saw Mello's face and shoulders and thought, "Hey, it's Mello! Hmm, those straps are kind of girly for hi-- OH MAH GAWD, HE HAS BREASTS." xDDD Hilarious. Good job! :thumbsup:

It's a bodybuilding woman! No, it's a feminine man!

This is really good. I look at it and it could be a man or a woman. It doesn't just look like a girly man either -it genuinely looks like it could be a guy . . . well, at least from the shoulders up, hee.

It's an intriguing picture, and very well executed. Top points!

Thank you! :D

Ah. It was truly tedious to NOT make him look like an effeminate man. I didn't want him to...well..."uke-out?" Idk.

Thank you for appreciating the ambiguity!

OMG I love it! Mostly I just love how manly you made him look. XD But it's great it just makes what'shisname in the fic that much more ga-ay!! Also it makes the mental image of the most recent chap that much more funny. Poor Light. XD
