The Future Will Be Wild by SweetLittleVampire The Future Will Be Wild by SweetLittleVampire
A request from :icondatnachtmaehre: - she wanted a GrellXEric fanart settled in the story universe of our :iconflymetothemars:-account (need to do some updates there, btw...). You can view the uniform they are wearing here: [link]

The story is set in the future - humans have colonized Mars, met other extraterrestrial species...pretty interesting things are/will be going on there.

We wanted to know how our fave Kuro characters would look in those uniforms we designed. This particular picture was born from a short roleplay between :icondatnachtmaehre: and me.

We know that this might not be your favourite pairing - and to be honest, it isn't mine either. I prefer William and Grell.
However we RP'd them - and it worked out! They're obviously not made to stay together forever after - at least not in our version - but they have a kind of...chemistry going on between them.

In our RP, Grell and Eric had a short love affair - Grell being frustrated because he couldn't get Will, and Eric being afraid of telling Alan about his feelings. He was too worried about losing his friendship.

I really like their facial expressions...

Grell: :icongrellhurrplz:
Eric: :iconeyesplz:

I hope you'll enjoy this anyhow.

Very interesting.  Reminds me a bit of futuristic Avatar: The Last Airbender, the Fire Nation in particular.

Oh, I know nothing about Avatar, so it might just be a coincidence. ^^;

Somehow this looks like a good pairing. I mean Eric is so manly and Grell is so pretty.

I think GrellXEric is a balanced relationship, cause Eric is really manly and we all know Grell is not... But they're both personalities who lose their temper easily, so that will be a problem.

How ironic! You see, I cosplay Grell, and my bf recently switched from cosplaying William to cosplaying Eric... so we've been going crazy trying to think of ways to make that pairing work! I would honestly like to see your rp. ^_^

Lose the filter - really - it just scares people away from nice art.
Plus this can be called slightly romantic, but definitely not Sexual. God - Grell's plush is so cute and I'm just too blown by the pure professionally and beauty of your art to be mad at the pairing. Although I still think its never ever going to even be hinted at, but i have never actually role played, but I imagine things might turn out very strange there. I'm a grown woman who plays with dolls after all...*aahem*

Anyhow I love their clothes and poses and just EVERYTHING - Grell's boots, his leg is the only truly masculine thing about it. His hairstyle is awesomeI also like the futuristic background. Plus i have neer seen you draw Eric so it was a great change. Awesome picture,

Deactivated the filter - I've put it up because I've seen other work with less romance and touching having the filter put up by dA-staff...:/

Thank you for your nice comment! ^^
I'm warning you - there will be more Eric/Grell fanart to come, since I just joined a freshly made group for that pairing (they have folders for the other Shinigami as well). I'll stick to Grelliam as my fave pairing, thouh, and there will be more to come for those two as well.
It's the first time I drew Eric, and somehow I'm not satisfied with his face...Grell's hairstyle was inspired by Hannah's braid. In the story universe they're in, long hair is a status symbol. Everyone is allowed to grow long hair, but only people who have reached a certain social level are allowed to show them open. Grell would be allowed to have them open, but he's braiding them because it's more practical in his job (can you imagine him as a space ship captain, Eric being the pilot? XD )
Grell's leg came out a bit too big, I think - he has a huge knee! XD I like however how the uniforms I've designed fit them - honestly, Grell's such a dressup-doll! XD

And I don't mind you playing with dolls - I'm almost 25, and the only reason why I don't buy dolls anymore is that I'm broke most of the time! XD

Ahh I see
You're welcome - and yeah EricxGrellness is all around, recently. I don't really mind cause your art is so good, but Its likely I'll still rant about it a tiny bit.
Well I think Russians actually at some point of their history had that with beards only rich people could have long beards , because there was a tax for it. So Its not that impossible.
Cool:) yeah dolls are a pretty expensive hobby.

I'll be trying to do more Grell-fanart - I'm allowed touse a cosplay picture as ref for one, and there will be a surprise for you too. ^^

Ich würde Grell nie mit Alan oder Ronald paaren - ich weiß nicht, es kommt mir so vor, als hätte er für Ron "Muttergefühle", und Alan ist wahrscheinlich nicht sein Typ.

Zoni spoke for me already being a fan, but I had to share my compliments. This is very well done, m'dear! Nice to see this pairing getting some attention. I'm hardcore Will/Grell and Eric/Alan, but Eric/Grell is a TON of fun and surprisingly believable :D

Last answer before I fall asleep in front of the PC -

Thank you very much! ^^
Same here, I prefer Will/Grell and was used to draw them, so this was quite of a challenge (I'm still not really satisfied with Eric's face, though...), but they are really fun! I sense they have a certain mixture of cuteness and hotness...I cannot clearly describe it.

I know that there are some other Eric/Grell fans out there, but they're pretty hard to find...
One might need a group for them or something.

(Oh, and - I'm a fan of your pictures, so your comment makes me proud and happy. :dance:)

I don't know if there are enough fans to make a group - but I might do just that, actually. Any chance you'd be interested in helping? My girlfriend is also a fan of the pairing. They need more love!

And thank you. Maybe I'll do some Eric/Grell art of my own thanks to some inspiration from you!
