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.

Ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooohhhhh, I love this pic. It is excellent, it is perfect, it is ... :heart:I can't express what I feel when I look at this picture.
Your worries were misplaced. You got Grievous. Perfect!:dance:
Grievous was inspired by the Count in the German movie Nosferatu??? I've never heard of this movie. But I'm German lol :lol:
Are you sure about that? Do you know what Nosferatu means? It's no German word ... That's for sure!;)

This is awesome! General Grievous is my favorite Star Wars villain...and I gotta say, out of all the pictures I've seen on Deviant Art about him...none can be as well done as this one.

Your depiction of Grievous is exactly the way I like him to look.

As in...the theme. Oh, you know what I mean. :P

But yeah, awesome. I love it.
