  10 Design

  In Death Note 13: How To Read, Takeshi Obata, the artist of the series, said that Ryuk was very hard to draw when he first came up with the design he currently has. Originally, the Shinigami looked like "attractive rock stars", with Ryuk having a similar appearance to Light.

  However, this idea was scrapped in order to avoid confusion of whether he or Light was the main character. Obata began drawing Ryuk the way fans know him as but it took him a long time to get used to the newer design.
