L Lawliet for Hiro 4 v.18-20 by bastblack L Lawliet for Hiro 4 v.18-20 by bastblack
I've done 2 other L morphs: Asian [link] Undead Asian [link] and Western [link] for M3. For this one, I've using the new DAZ gen 4 figure Hiro 4 as my base. And this time, I'm trying to get closer to the Obata-sensei's original inspiration for L's look.

QUESTIONS:

1) L's body shape. I made him thin, but not too thin. (He does have to be able to kick Light's butt. lol I figure he's lean and toned, so he may look weaker under his baggy clothes than he really is.) Does it work?

2) Eyebrows, or no eyebrows? I did no eyebrows here, but I might try it with brows. Which do you prefer?

3) I can't decide if I should lower the brow bone or not. I tried it and I'm not sure if it works or not. With a lower brow, he starts to look more like a generic anime male. However, in the manga, it does look like he has either a low brow, or he often makes frowny/annoyed brow faces. Thoughts?



This is a quickie Poser 4 render. If you click the image to see large version, you'll notice the render has artifacts. This is because the displacement maps didn't render correctly. This is just to preview how the morph looks. ^^;

The hair and face morphs were created in Blacksmith3d.
The texture is a modified Sledmaster for M3, UTCed to M4.
Still working on his long sleeve t-shirt. (This version has some JP problems on the neck.

It's a poser model. I believe there is a way to import poser models into MMD, but I think their quality is much better in Poser. Here's a link to their website, it should explain it better than me: [link]

Wow...Just...Wow! Only thing is, is it just me, or does his left hip bone jut out just a slight bit too far? Otherwise, I think he is drop dead gorgeous!

It would be interesting to see him with a shadowed eyebrow. Nothing too significant to take the focus from the eyes and the hair. What you have now does work, but if there's a slight bit more of a hint showing he does have eyebrows that would add to and complete his face. Once again, great job on L! :clap:

Thanks for the comments.
The hip bone does seem extreme. ^^;

I think I will experiment with a Jim Morrison-type of brow for L. Morrison had brown hair, but his eyebrow was light and barely noticeable (Chinese face readers call this Chameleon Eyebrow). I think this style might work for L.

What do you think?

I vote for no brows, keep the body shape you have now 'cause it looks great, and leave his brow-bone however it was for this render. XD; Really nice work, the hair looks very convincing as do the eyebags!

I don't know if you noticed it or not since it's a reply to your own reply on someone else's comment, but I recommended a Matt hair for you somewhere in there. ^^; Anyway, you did an awesome job of the hair and panda eyes--his eyes have that L-lish look to them that's hard to achieve.

Oh, your Matt hair here: ^^

Oh yes! I know very well how hard it is to get the right look! ^^; The more I look at this morph, the more problems I see. The nose is going to need more work too. ^^;

I'm planning to use the L morph for Near, and just age him down. (Is Near like a baby version of L, or what?) And I think this morph will also work well as the base for Mello and Matt but with a few tweaks.
