Blood Moon by SweetLittleVampire Blood Moon by SweetLittleVampire
I was in Grell-mood again – obviously! :D

This time I wanted to show our beloved Red Reaper in action, a bit as we see him in the “Jack the Ripper”-arc, but this is obviously later. I love to draw him in Madame Red´s coat! :love:

In German, the Moon you see when a lunar eclipse is happening is sometimes called “Blutmond”, which means “Blood Moon”. I´m quite sure it´s a reference to the slightly red colour the Moon gets then.

When I was living back in Northern Germany, we lived one train hour away from the East Sea, and we sometimes saw gorgeous Blood Moons without having lunar eclipses. My girlfriend :icondatnachtmaehre:*DatNachtmaehre explained to me that it might have to do with the sea itself; apparently we perceive the Moon differently whether there´s a storm or depending on how high the tide is (I guess it has to do with atmospheric interferences).

If the Moon is more yellowish, we sometimes call it “Honigmond” (“Honey Moon”) or “Lachsmond” (“Salmon Moon”).

ajfkalsfjsdk my brain is exploding from the motherofmagicalamazingness of this work! :iconamgtouchplz:

I love his awesome flowing pose~ Cool, slightly insane, the way he holds his chainsaw. I already give you many props for even drawing the complicated thing. Interesting blurring effect - it gives the image movement; and so does his pose anyways. And his magical shinigami hair that defies gravity as it flows all over the place <:

:iconfffsebbyplz: I just love that awesome color of the moon - from yellow to red to purple ... and then how those colors are reflected on Grell as well.

Brilliant work as always! :icongrellfangirlsplz:

Thank you so much!:hug:

I believe that Shinigami hair has its own life. XD
No, really. The problem is that I never seem to care in what direction it flows unless it looks good. When I have the whole thing finished I often go "Hang on - thereīs something wrong..." XD

I love that moon. The inspiration came from this picture: [link] It looks fake, but I have witnessed such Moons back when I was living in Northern Germany. They look insanely huge and have those magical colours, but as soon as they reach the highest place in the sky, they look normal again. And all that is due to atmospheric interferences! I love blood moons.

Epic. Completly epic. I am always very happy when you draw Grell :hooray:. It looks very him and you put nice detail into him such as the beads on his pants and glasses. Good job on everything as usual. The blood moon is a cool idea too. One thing that bothers me a bit is that Grell looks a bit like he's been cut out and pasted on the background. I don t know - the light doesn't seem to fall naturally somehow - still - a great picture:)

Youīre right, though - he was pasted on that background, mainly because I had no idea what to put in that background! XD

That is a gorgeous image of Grell. I love the action in this whole seen plus the darker elements such as the moon and the blood on his scythe. My favorite part is his expression; so fierce yet confident. Love this!
