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:

who is bb?

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:
EdwardX1 Featured By Owner Apr 27, 2014
Ah okay. I'll look into it.

But can you tell me why he looks like L?
Robbuz Featured By Owner Apr 28, 2014   Digital Artist
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)->…
EdwardX1 Featured By Owner May 12, 2014
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.
Robbuz Featured By Owner May 17, 2014   Digital Artist
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
EdwardX1 Featured By Owner May 17, 2014
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
Robbuz Featured By Owner Nov 6, 2013   Digital Artist
thanks! :aww: well, he's indeed depicted as menacing looking and somewhat disgusting so, yeah everyone would be scared to death by him :XD: nonetheless, he's one of the greatest characters in Death Note :heart:

Is 'another note' also an anime? I couldn't find it anywhere...

And this looks great!
Robbuz Featured By Owner Oct 13, 2013   Digital Artist
"Another Note - The Los Angeles BB Murder Cases" is a novel book written by NisiOisiN, who's also the creator of the "Monogatari series", and sadly there's no anime of it :(

thanks so much!:aww:
XoXoCandie Featured By Owner Oct 27, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Oh, alright! I guess I'll have to search for the book someday then~
