Judas by moni158 Judas by moni158
Has to be one of my fav scenes in the whole anime.. its so symbolic :icontearplz:

(* Title is based on the bible story of Judas and Jesus...not Lady Gaga XD*)

* Note- this only happens in the anime*

(edit...if you like L/Light as a pairing I don't have a problem with that...but please don't assume this pic is designed to be a pairing, in fact it is anything but that.... honestly the pairing creeps me out and I don't understand how anyone can like it >.<, and since a lot of people are asking, its episode 25)

here is the other version :iconheeplz:

I agree... I don't like the pairing.
I can understand why a lot of people would take this scene the wrong way... But those people don't seem to fully understand the scene's true meaning; which is unfortunate because it's so symbolic.
A very well done scene I must say, and you did an awesome job showing it here. :D

Absolutely stunning!!
TKDshadow Featured By Owner Jan 29, 2014
I thought I have faved this before. I know I've at least commented on it before. I think. Glad I found it again! Love the symbolism here! Like Jesus, L also knew what Light planned to do. L knew he was Kira the whole time.

I love how you drew this,the coloring is spectacular.. :heart: ^__________^
And,yeah about the pairing thing..I'm really totally against this stupidity,I mean I think this is even an offense to L's character. A genius,totally isolated detective suddenly goes out in public showing himself to the person whom he suspected to be kira from the very beginning. L risked his life to capture the immature,insane good-looking Light Yagami. And now yaoi fans just blab about the silly pairing of Light and L. Honestly,I didn't like this scene,Light deserves a punch in the leg on his face,not a massage XDXD. I didn't actually like the whole episode. It's the episode of L's painful death. T_____T
LOL,Im being over serious about this Death Note thing,sorry ^^; It's just that Im a huge fan of L :heart: *squeeezes L*

mariposasabrosa Featured By Owner Oct 16, 2012
thank you for making this and stating that it's not a pairing and seeing that it's EXACTLY like the bible story where Jesus (good guy) washes Judas' (traitor) feet... *sigh* I thought I was the only one who thought that!

att vara rättvis,
jag hittade den märkligt sexuellt.
LadyData Featured By Owner Aug 10, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I love it!! That's what I was thinking too when I 1st saw this scene in ep 25. Not to sound religious or anything but I notice that Death Note has a lot of Christian imagery.
PlatypusAfro Featured By Owner Aug 18, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I only noticed this scene and Mello's crucifix, is there any more?
LadyData Featured By Owner Aug 19, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
It's more obvious on the manga than the anime. For example in the back cover of Death Note manga 13 there's a picture of Mello and Near with a bright sun in the background that looks exactly like The Lady of Guadelupe. Then in the manga she also has a saint statue in her room.

I love the biblical parallel of that scene it really sets off the mood for the rest of that episode.

So L is Jesus & Light is Judas? Cool pic BTW^^
spacingOUTasWEspeak Featured By Owner Mar 31, 2012   Traditional Artist
I like how you titled this Judas, relating it to the biblical story.. I thought the same thing when I first saw this in the other version, how it reminded me of Jesus washing Judas's feet before he betrayed him.

I don't like them as a pairing either, but the Cinderella scene in your other version of this still cracks me up, hahaha, especially their faces (L's in particular, haha :D )
cbcordle Featured By Owner Mar 29, 2012  Hobbyist Artist
This scene made me sad, considering L saw him as a friend and Light just wanted him dead.
Onyx-Dinosoar Featured By Owner Mar 15, 2012  Hobbyist Photographer
I totally agree with you. The pairing creeps me out to X3
And I really didn't know that people paired LXLight until AFTER I finished the series.
Thank God, or else it probably would have ruined the whole thing for me XD

But great job<3
You really captured the intensity in that scene<3
TKDshadow Featured By Owner Feb 25, 2012
I get it now!!! When I saw this scene in the anime I just thought it was weird. But after seeing this I understand! Jesus washed Judas' feet right before Judas betrayed Jesus. And Jesus knew he was going to betray him. Light was betraying L. Did L know? This is great. :D
Ramavatarama Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I get pairings like this as an "alternative character interpretation" exercise, its funny an interesting and I myself enjoy it, but it's a completely made up thing, utter and complete "what if". Sometimes romance and sex makes everything so much more fucked up, and that's is really something talking about Death Note. I actually don't "ship" things, but once I read a LightxL fanfic that it was so freaking dark, very Clarisse StarlingxHannibal.

So it always creeps me when people think that it's true as in totally happened, but then again, there are people that ship JesusXJudas for real, so you are bound to be creeped out either way!!

Alas, I love the colors you used!
Silverwolfkakashi Featured By Owner Jan 19, 2012  Hobbyist Writer
I think the picture is appropriately titled. Although, I didn't really connect it to a symbolism of Jesus and Judas, I can definitely see it. I also don't think that was supposed to be a yaoi moment in the series but more of a look into Light and L's characters. Light was the first real friend that L; however, I think L was fully aware that Light would kill him the first chance the latter got. And the fact that Light did do just that gives a deeper look into his dark, sadistic side. At least, that's what I got from it the first time I watched it. It was a scene that made me dislike Light all the more, and I felt really bad for L.

So why did this happen in the anime? why were they in the rain without shoes, etc?
Magic-Creator Featured By Owner Jan 2, 2012
the saddest scene in the anime... :icontearsplz:
miudream Featured By Owner Dec 21, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
what did it symbolize? I remember this scene sort of but never really understood this.
SnapBanditWolf Featured By Owner Jan 18, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
In the story of the Last Supper, Jesus washed the feet of his disciples as a servant would, showing his humility and symbolically treating them as his equals. Judas was one of his disciples, and he betrayed him the next morning, which is why Jesus was condemned to die at the cross.
It's a symbol of trust and betrayal.
miudream Featured By Owner Jan 18, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
oh wow cool. I mean not cool, but cool how they symbolized Light and L that way.
SnapBanditWolf Featured By Owner Jan 18, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Yes, it's a very powerful metaphor. :D
The more you know, right?
PoeticLotusCreations Featured By Owner Dec 18, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
Wow, I'm surprised to find you don't understand the pairing. Although, I'm curious to knows what creeps you out about them. For me there wasn't only clear unresolved sexual tension there was blatant flirtation with death, on the part of L.

He was a brilliant criminologist but he knew, for a fact, that Light was Kira. He knew it! I think after that his bringing Light in close, to the point of the above scene, was his getting a good look at his own death. Call it what you will, but I think he was infatuated with Light, obsessed even. And he was going to keep getting as close to Kira until Light was able to kill him.

If that's not masturbation, I don't know what is. It was sad for it to end, but it was hot getting there!
miudream Featured By Owner Dec 21, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
You seriously think thats why? I think them as a pairing is cool, but I don't seriously think that they were together.
PoeticLotusCreations Featured By Owner Jan 26, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Oh yeah! I really feel that they've had this really weird bad romance thing going from the beginning. Its like the tale of the frog and the scorpion. It was inevitable that it would end badly. L was just 100 steps ahead of Light because he knew either Mello or Near would really be the ones to catch him up. L was a smart so damn smart it wasn't even funny!

I will forever be impressed with how he figured out Misa was the fake Kira with the whole phone thing. I laughed so damn hard, because he pissed the shit out of Light with that stunt. And when Light saw he had her secret phone. LOL Still cracks me up!
