His eyes are perfect. Some people who do realistic pictures of him tend to make them look super cartoony, and the pieces consequently look a little "off." You captured just the right amount of L's natural "uncanny" countenance here, and it actually looks believable. He's a little unsettling, and that's his nature.

The color of his eyes works, as well.

And his seemingly blank expression is slightly accusatory, yet curious. I love it. :D

Thank you! I'm glad you like my interpretation of the character. I tried really hard to find just the right balance between exaggeration and realism.

This is beautiful! I love the colour palette and how well you handled the realism here. The brushstrokes look great and add a lot to the overall painterlyness here. Love it! Fantastic job!
