This is wonderful - the mirror in the background is kinda creepy and disturbing to be honest ...what IS outside that she can't sleep?!!!

Hmm, it's not the cigarettes that worry me, it's the smoking spoon.

No wonder he can't sleep.

Fantastic work, and extremely atmospheric.

So, I know this comment is more than a month delayed, but I just found this and I wanted you to know that I think it's really well done. The way you colored it is so soft and painter-ly; I think it really hits the hazy feeling of insomnia. Plus, I love L. <3 Nice work!

The MOVIE IN YOUR EYE LIDS by PLACEBO is the first song that pop up to my mind when seen this. Talks about a MIRROR and a DILEMA "Why can you be me". Here it is. [link]

This isssss a KILLER drawing!!!! THE AMBIENCE was just like a punch to my eyes A MUST SEE. This Picture IS ALIVE MAN!!! in a very dark, private, cozy, melancholic way. That mirror on his back is quite symbolic. And for that, its quite scary. Over the head part of the bed??? uuuu man... is like the other part of your persona watching u while u sleep.

Poor L. I mean, we all know he's an insomniac, but this is probably the first time I've seen a picture of how he deals with all of it. It's...distinctly different.

Wow.

I think this may be one of the best portrayals of L I've ever seen. He looks so. . .human. So real. Which is, to be frank, a breath of fresh air after the hordes of chibi-cartoon-caricature-childish L fanarts one has to slog through in #Church-Of-L. . .

. . .but I digress. Fantastic job, and a well-deserved kudos.

He looks so much younger (and a tad thinner). I think maybe he took up sweets in order to quit smoking :)

It's the bottom eyelids that really sell this image for me. Too little sleep and too much zopyclone/whatever-else-they-try-to-pump-into-you. Yes, I definitely know those eyes.

Always imagined him to have a lack of sleep.
Do disagree with the cigarettes though.
Not very L-like, I won't pretend to know him but lots of sugar was fine because he burnt it off with his brain.
He just wouldn't smoke.

although i agree with you on the cigarettes part, i admire and respect the artist's creativity and own concept that he would smoke. to each his own ideas i guess.
