inspired by disturbed- down with the sickness. title comes from the lyrics, "The world is scary place/now that you've woken up the demon in me"

the goal was to make light look as evil as possible, sorta like one of the shinigami. i recreated ryuks earing, stitched the mouth shut, etc etc.

the "death note" at the bottom i vectored from a page i scanned from the manga, and ryuk from the corner of this scan: Death Note : How To Read 02 by Tatsuya
the main image is from this scan: Guardian of Death's Door - Light by Marissa one of the most used in the death note gallery, but I used it differently (and actually before several of the others, this was in the sandbox for ages)

the font used for the title is called fluoxetine, found it on dafont.com

    I like the hair, generally. i'm not too sure of about the use of the highly angular brush around the eyes there, and in general around his face - there's probably a better way to darken those parts. I also like the background, the useage and placement of the crosses is a good thing.

    nice wall :D

    I'd like to confess, when I saw the thumbnail the first thing to come into my mind was: this looks like a wallie gone bad.
    Well, I must say I was wrong- a bit ;)

    Making people look evil is generally done through the manipulation of backgorund- which you did very well. I'm rather fond of rough tectured backgrounds.
    I agree on shiningdays's (sic) comment on the shading on the face and eyes- although they do achieve the evil effect..Ha. What bothers my most is the mouth.. The way it's done right now catches the audience's attention straight away- which can be both good and bad. Did you ever see the poster for that Silent Hill movie? getting rid of the mouth compelety can up the "evil" factor alot- but that's just my personal opinion.

    Well you did well...he definately looks creepy *shivers* Light's got the wicked look going on most of the time...but well goth reject seems to suit him ^_^
