How to draw Manga, Light Yagami from Death Note

How to draw Manga Light Yagami from Death Note. Learn how to draw Manga, Anime, and comics. Drawing and sketching anime technique for manga, cartoon and comics. One of the easiest way to draw I find is to simplify the subject first and foremost. It will make drawing a lot less complicate and less intimidating. I usually look at the image then simplify it into simple geometry shapes like rectangles. It is a lot easier to draw once simplify your observation of the subject and the over all shape of the face or character you are drawing. I usually start of using circle or oval or simple geometry shape as a base for character's skull, then next step would be figuring out the next geometry form to fit into the image.

About Death Note, Light Yagami,
Light Yagami (夜神 月 Yagami Raito?), also known as Kira (キラ?) is a fictional character and the main protagonist of the manga and anime series Death Note. He is an extremely intelligent, athletic, popular, but bored young man who finds the Death Note dropped by the Shinigami Ryuk by sheer chance.
He is the protagonist and anti-hero of Death Note. At the start of the series, he discovers the Death Note and uses it to kill criminals, then becoming known to the people of Japan as Kira (based on the Japanese pronunciation of the English word "killer"). Light is characterized as an extremely intelligent yet bored young man, confident in his own sense of logic and how clever he is in regards to others. He is frustrated by the lack of justice in the world. Believing the world to be "rotten," he desires a means by which he can enact his will to purge the world of all evil. Light can be described as "coldly manipulative," "egomaniacal," and "an unrepentant serial killer, a butcher on an enormous scale" who is not "a Freddy Krueger, a monster who represents pure evil, or a Patrick Bateman, a demonic symbol of his age." Wolk describes Light as "the good guy, more or less" who genuinely believes that he holds "the moral high ground." Through use the Death Note, Light quickly begins to develop a cruel and malevolent nature. He becomes completely devoid of love, compassion and mercy. He views himself as the only rightful savior of mankind and that all his actions are justified no matter how inhuman they are. He is shown even to sacrifice his own family to obtain his goals.
