Time to celebrate spring!
Grell is such a dress-up-doll - in a good way.
Frankly, I cannot think of any clothing style which wouldn't fit her. I guess she would even look nice in baggy pants! XD
So this time, I've wanted to show her in a Geisha-styled kimono. Might not be historically/culturally accurate, I'm aware of that. Nevermind, this wasn't the purpose - was just made for fun and to please all the Grell-ists out there (including myself! XD)
I needed a full day for the background (which had something around 30 layers, I guess), another day for Grell's lineart, coloring, lighting and shading (another 40 layers) and half a day for William (with interruptions - meals and so on). And I've used some brushes for the kimono, I was lazy (credits below).
Can you imagine I got inspired to draw this by watching my girlfriend draw this? → [link]
