Ryuk from Death Note

This is Ryuk, he's a death god from Death Note the manga. pretty cool character design, it has some Japanese demons characteristics mixed with some Western monterish-ness!

This is a huge pain, this whole image is painted with Dots, lots and lots of freaking Dots! This is called optic mix, all of these colors used is straight out of the tube. They're place right next to each other, so from a distance your eye automatically mix the two colors together! This is called Optic Mix. This painting took me about 30 hours plus!!!
