Jack the ripper by Edrice Jack the ripper by Edrice
Jack the ripper.
Trying out a style. Grunge, dirty illustration. Working with matter and texture more than just the drawing.

Done in ps.

Edit 27/01/2011
Repainted the skull, hat and the upper arm, and tweaks all over.

In a way, this is very atmospheric. I love how Jack is like a grim reaper!

It's beautiful. I might try doing a painting of the Ripper to go with the story I'm writing.

I'm writing a book about Jack the Ripper, mind if I crop and use this as the cover?

If you intend to sell the book, then you need to pay the rights to use the image. If it's a free book it's okay.

I always wondered why he hated prostitutes that much....I mean, they sold their bodies because they had no option!
Anyway, I really like this; it perfectly describes Jack the Ripper.

Love how he's just a wraith, as his(her?) identity was never found. Great work.

You know, whenever I think of Jack the Ripper, I think about "The Strange Case of Dr. Jekkyl and Mr. Hyde."
