marshmello over flame by Carmetsys marshmello over flame by Carmetsys
disclaimer: i don't *own* Near. no one does. from 'death note.'

not voodoo.

traditional, freehand (drawn from memory, no reference, so give me no grief if Near looks a bit iffy)
flamingo black ink, fountain pen.
then photoshop, aka magic.

listened to: 'like fire' by rising shadows [link]

But Near spent a long time on that puppet! it was hinted he loved Mello! Why would he do that???

oh, in this one, he still does like mello. it's the whole reason he's going so far as to make it that realistic. fire scar effect achieved by actual flame. it's a painstaking craft of love. dedicated, ne? you have to look past the apparent cruelty to see the affection in the action. near is a strange kid, after all. :)

I would rather see frosting (and sec before grilled) near tortured by our beloved <3 psycho-schizo Mello.

Wohoho, are my eyes misleading me or is that really new art style you used.?

you mean Mello's nightmare? the painting i did?
yeah... it is different.

i explained why on my page. : >
if you don't want to visit it, i can tell you right now: i'm experimenting with different styles. sorry, did i disappoint you? sometimes people watch me for a kind of style i'm using at the moment, only to have me change again.
if so, sorry about that, but this is my usual anime style.

ah, no at all. I loved Mello's nightame and of course hope you will someday make sth similar, only with actually pleased or usual Mello, not this.. Depressed.? Yea. But I also like the actual art. And even though (I must admit it) it's not my favourite I still like it. Especially because they are not only somw portrets but pic which are telling something. Have some action or story to tell in background. That's what I like about them.
And, you know, Mello in this style is also really nice so that's okay. : )

well, that's a relief. thanks for being honest about it.

i never noticed until it come from someone else, but i do give Mel a hard time in my art. i guess i've always viewed him as having it harder than Near anyway, and i tend to emphasize that. in a twisted sadistic way, that means i'm on his side.

sure thing.

Of course he had everything harder and more difficult than Near. After years being second, I think he became mentally broken. However he is totally super-great character.

Yea, let's cheer for Mello.! ;D

on the outlook of it, yes, it very much is.

Near's intentions, of course... it's just a puppet

Marsmellow? But it looks like he is making the puppet, am I right?
I love the folds and the overall lighting.

:iconcarmetsys:
Carmetsys Featured By Owner Sep 9, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
it is the puppet of mello. since it's over the flame, that almost signifies roasting a marshmallow. Marshmello = marshmallow, get it?
it's an analogy in picture. : >

and thank you for the appreciation. the lighting was tricky for me, so it means a lot that you like it
