BB - Closer by Robbuz BB - Closer by Robbuz
You wouldn't believe how f*cking scared I was when I accidentally zoomed straight on his face :XD:
So, seems like my inspiration never fails to visit me when it comes to draw Beyond Birthday, wonder why XD
On another note (I know, lame pun), I saw a lot of people complaining about and the low quality of the stories in it. Believe me, it's nothing compared to the shit you can find in a fanfiction site pretty famous in my country...I'm sure I saw a pregnant Beyond and some Mary Sue making him act like a geisha and it's something you wouldn't want to see/read.
And they were NOT parodies.

So, I wanted to make a dark, somewhat scary picture just to remind myself how Beyond was supposed to be. :XD: Hope you like it!:heart:

Beyond Birthday is a fictional character from the novel "Another Note: The Los Angeles BB Murder Cases" written by NisiOisiN. It tells the story of how L and Naomi Misora met during their very first job together, which is mentioned in the original manga, too. It's a canon universe and it's been published in English, so you can buy it online or at book shops! I found my copy in a manga shop, so you should check it out there, too :aww:

Ah okay. I'll look into it.

But can you tell me why he looks like L?

That's actually a major spoiler in the book, if you don't want to ruin the surprise you should just read the book and I highly suggest to do so, because it's a very great book, a bit short, but still enjoyable and full of suspance. :aww:

Otherwise, you can find his wiki page here (WARNING: IT SPOILS EVERYTHING)->…

Okay so I read the story.
You are right, it is really cool.  I just wish we had some official visuals.

But on a side note, I don't think BB actually looked EXACTLY like L. Just copied his "style" so to speak.

Yes, I think the same way; in the book they describe B having very simple clothes and eye bags, but since we, as readers, know L wears something like that too, we were kind of lead to think he's exactly like L. That's how the fandom portrays him, since there's no official picture of him -even though some think the "L" in the illustration with Naomi Misora in the book may be him. Not to mention, I think it was just a case that he looked like L, because they never saw each other and B never mentioned that he wanted to look like him; he actually HATED L and didn't want to be his copy, so there wouldn't have been any reason for him to disguise as him. Making people think that B look like L was an important part of the plot, though: for those who didn't know about Beyond Birthday, it was pretty shocking when they found out in the end he was who they thought he was L :XD:
Anyway, I'm glad you liked the book! :D

It is implicated that he did purposefully base his style off of L with his... mixed feelings towards him.

You captured him perfectly
He is scary indeed when you zoom in on to his face
But still he is epic
I imagined him to be scary looking when i read the book hahaha
I dont know why
Maybe its because of his Shimigami eyes XD
