Grendel Cityscape by paperfetish Grendel Cityscape by paperfetish
This is an early color piece done for a friend’s graduation. I enjoyed the structure of the architecture in this piece. There are details in the hands and feet that seem to have bled out because of the lighting, but I took 5 pics in different lighting and this one came out best.

All of the paper is Canson, with the exception of the paper used for the sky, which was a great handmade paper I was lucky to find.


Grendel copyright Matt Wagner.

If I'm not mistaken this is modelled after a part in devil by the deed in which Larry Stohler should be talking to Grendel through the window very well done.

Thank you! I'm going to have to trust your judgment as I don't remember. I do recall there is a character talking to him through the window, but I don't recall if it was Larry Stohler.

Okay, I'm STUNNED! Not only did You produce an EXCELLENT rendition of Matt Wagner's Grendel, but, You fooled me into thinking this was a Tempera Painting! Just goes to show what can be done with some talent, and, persistence!

No problem, I really mean it! I kind of wonder, though, how he might do with another creators characters, such as, when He did The Demon(Jack Kirby's)! Now, THAT will really Freak You Out, if You haven't seen it!

If only I had friends like you.

Great figure work. In fact everything in the foreground looks great. Maybe the big building in the background on the far left could have been a diffrent colour, like grey, to mix things up a little, but it's still pretty good. Love the texture of the sky and you've really got the characteristics of Hunter's pose. Overall it's got all the charm of a Wagner piece. Fantastic stuff.
