General Grievous by nellmckellar General Grievous by nellmckellar
Here's my homage to the poor fella with the chronic cough from Star Wars III.
General Grievous was inspired by the character of Count Graf Orlock from the old german movie Nosferatu. I decided to keep with the theme, the pose/composition here was an adaptation from a photograph from the Nosferatu movie.
I know it's not a totally accurate drawing of him, but I hope it captures some of his menacing air from the movie!

Watercolour, gouache and coloured pencil.

For some some reason, I often do the same thing with my hands.... I think I've got a bit of Grievous inside me.

I really like the concept of your art, and I love the filter you used for your picture. He's still menacing like you wanted, but I can't help but to point the feel of the picture.

GG: You foolish Jedi! -cough, hack- I can still strike you down easily, even with these old joints.

The pose kinda makes me think of an old hermit that hates everyone and still can fight well.

...Wait, he kinda is XD

Moving on, I like your style of him. It doesn't have to accurate, as long as people can tell who it is, you got your point through :3
