I'd always wanted to see butler!Grell drawn or painted in a realistic style like this! You made my dream come true, just thought you should know that. I'm going to be coming back to look at this one quite a bit. Just wonderful - you have some serious skill.
The only thing that throws me off is that shadow/coat collar in the background. Is that something that should be obvious to me, or is it something symbolic?
LIKE HOLY ROMAN EMPIRE I TOOK ONE SMALL GLANCE SMALL GLANCE AT THIS AND SQUEELED LIKE THE OBSESIVE GRELL FANGIRL I AM GAH HE IS AS GORGEOUS AS RED ROSES COVERED IN THE CRIMSON BLOOD OF THEIR VICTIMS THAT FELL TO THEIR BEAUTY~ ~~
Ah, Grell, how I love you. You did an absolutely lovely job on him, my dear. Before I clicked on him I thought he was crying blood I'm really happy about this piece because I rarely see pictures of Grell before he was revealed as (1/2 of) Jack the Ripper. I adore this picture :3
This is amazing!!! I always have a hard time finding really good fanart of Butler/Jack the Ripper Grell so I am so happy you drew this!!! I love the expression you gave him, the way you painted his eye and bow tie and how you put a faded London in the background!!! It is truly a hauntingly beautiful portrait!
This is completely gorgeous. You captured Grell's features amazingly well, especially his appearance in butler form. It's like you took that image from the anime and just rounded it out to look like a real person and for that I applaud you. I love his expression too, half innocent but not for long. Like "Yes I'm so very guilty looking...but not in a second."
Oh my goodness... I am speechless.. This is so gorgeous. I just adore the way you draw him. I keep scrolling back up to just stare at your work. There is such a beautiful sadness to him in this picture, a calm, that is just a fraction away from his psychotic madness. This is stunning!
WOW.... THAT IS AMAZING! It looks SO realistic. And for once He looks like a man. A handsome one at that I can't even describe how good this is - I love his hair - that shade of brown is beautiful - I love his profile - so realistic and well colored. And his eyes...so green. He just looks so - sad, handsome. Manly. It is SO WELL DOMNE!! I love the colouring style.
Oh wow thanks) I tried to make him both masculine and feminine, I think that's how Grell must really look like) Unmistakeably a young man when in men's clothes, and rather girlish in case he's wearing makeup and madame Red's coat
