talent in expression for his Death Note idol. He said we could take what we wanted. So we did.
Matsuda on a Rainbow
There's plenty more where that came from.
In fact, it was hard work to whittle down which pieces of Matsuda fan-art we wanted to nick from Ziferonan's extensive collection.
Particularly when so many of them were very imaginative and unique in their aspect. The sort of Death Note art you don't tend to find anywhere else in the fandom, and we like that in a gallery!
To discover more Death Note Matsuda art from the mind and vision of Ziferonan, divert yourself onto DeviantART, where gems like these await.
Puppet - Death Note Matsuda Fan-Fiction by Ziferonan
Not all of Ziferonan's Matsuda artwork stands alone. Some support his Death Note fan-fiction featuring Touta Matsuda too.
Part one of Puppet starts here with Sleepwalker, and continues on into a four part tale.
What you're seeing alongside here is the cover art to Ziferonan's Puppet Matsuda fan-fiction, with the picture alternatively titled Puppet on a Rose, when it was posted to DeviantART.
In Ziferonan's story Matsui is beset by the demands of Ryuzaki and Watari, leaving the sanctuary of the Kira investigation headquarters in search of cake. Yet outside presents itself as a most surreal world, given Matsuda's sleepless state and the ever-present worry and trauma of seeing colleagues killed, while knowing himself to be upon a suicide mission, probably.
Not the quest for cake. The Kira case.
But what catches his eye at four am isn't a bakery, nor a lead on the hunt for a serial killer. Richly glowing, bright within the dreary early morning air is a toy shop, and Matsuda enters.
... Touta felt himself falling somewhere very very deep away from reality...
Puppet is Ziferonan's first fan-fiction story in English. It was originally written in his native Russian and translated so the English-speaking fandom might enjoy it too.
Read it from the Puppet: Sleepwalker link given above, then on to:
Puppet 2: Missing
Puppet 3: Spring Dream
and concluding with Puppet 4: Care
A Kira-ish Matsuda Cosplay by Ziferonan
Albeit apparently accidentally. He was aiming for Mikami at the time.
