Need a Death Note for your next cosplay? Just want a coffee table piece? Make one today with this foolproof method that even the most artistically challenged can do.

I actually haven't watched alot of Death note, but my friend has a sister who absolutely loves it. For her birthday, said friend wanted to get her a Death Note. He didn't know how to do it and since I'm an Art Education major he drafted me to do it.

Using a graphite transfer method was the simplest and most cost effective means I could think of. So long as you can color in the lines you're good. I made Brian's sister two notebooks, Light Yagami's and Misa Amane's. Since it was finals week when he asked me to do this, I made Light's first. I didn't think to make an instructible until I got around to this one. I used the same method for Light's.

Also, don't mind my terrible pictures. I didn't have any other camera save for the webcam that was build into my computer.

Step 1: Stuff you need

You'll need:

Black Notebook (I have Moleskine notebooks, but any kind that isn't spiral bound should do.)
Paper (not shown)
Printer (not shown)
Silver Sharpies
Flat surface to work on
Nice way of making it!
You could also try using pre-made graphite or chalk transfer paper, available at most craft supply stores, for those of you who prefer that sort of thing.
i think your face is cute
