Fullview, please! ^^

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] (That horse is amazing, btw).

Why did you keep referring to Grell as 'she'? Is it just because Grell likes to refer to himself as a lady or..? *confuzzled*

Did I? *goes to reread comment*
OMG I did! I guess that was the main idea, yes; I later settled for "he" as "the character".

People tend to fight wars over which pronouns to use for Grell, and I find it rather annoying, to be honest.

It always irks me when people refer to Grell as 'she' in fanfiction and such, because Grell's entire character revolves around what a flamboyant, fabulous, wanton MALE reaper he is! It's like the ultimate OOC.
