Grim Reaper by Lienwyn Grim Reaper by Lienwyn
Right.
Me and *Sjazna started this story a while back where Mitia and some of the other demons from the same story are Grim Reapers. In this story they have so called Grim Reaper forms, that humans are incapable of seeing (unless the Grim Reaper lets them) and that of course meant that I had to design Mitia's, yes.

He doesn't have all those flailing ribbons for real - it wouldn't be very practical while working - but since I didn't want to make a regular design sketch again I chose to work with composition and all that, and then they came in handy.

And those who have watched me for a while knows how odd this is since Mitia NEVER dresses in black. At least not completely, but here he does.
It was honestly impossible to match the colours on this outfit unless it was black -___-' I still don't get that but hey, it's nice to see him in something else than white.

And... fur. And details.
I wasn't really sure what I was thinking when I was designing this but I'm pretty pleased with the result.
There isn't much else to say about it really...

Well, except that these Grim Reapers don't have scythes for real, it's just Mitia who felt like... fondling one here.

It's pretty silly and pointless >_>
But SHINY! :la:
That has to count for something ;)


One of the textures (not the one in the back, that one is free) is from `Princess-of-Shadows

I like the fact that this picture is almost in black, red and white, which are said to be the most basic colours psychology-wise. The first three that got their names in any language. Fitting for a figure of Death.

Serious stuff aside, yes, he's shiny :D His hair practically glows :drool: Love the... coat, if you call it that. The main piece of clothing anyway :XD: And his belt. And those ribbons. :meow:

Shinyyyy! :la:

Indeed ;)
And pretty fitting for Mitia too, the freak :XD:

I like it when he glows ^_^ It's probably because of him originally being a light demon and all that :XD:
I think that you can call it a coat, yes :XD:
I like it too ;)

SHIIINYYYY! :la:

First you tell me that if I got close to Nernethai I would end up dead and now you present this... you honestly want me to die :XD:

I like him in white very much but black clothes, white hair and blood red details... uh, that's something I am hardly able to resist :drool:
And yes, so shiny! :O I like it! A lot...
It's a perfect front page for a comics by the way :aww:

Mitia! :love:

Well... naaaah... not really... I just want you to whimper a little ;)

Same here :XD: And it fits him here... I'm not sure if would in all the other stories but ah well...
As long as he's happy I am too... since he would make one hell of a fight out of it otherwise x'D

Thank you! :hug:

He says thank you too ;)

The details are awesome, and I like the little jewel...things that thrown all over him and the scythe.

No matter how long time will go by, you will always rock at painting shiny things.
And Mitia is unpredictable. Newer can make him do anything that is supposed to be, not that he pulls it of in the most gorgeous way anyways... :heart:
Then I see what club this one is featured in and lost all hope :XD:

It's cool! I like it. I also like to see him in something I think suits him better :P And I still freeze a little just from watching him - I mean come on! Both fur AND bare shoulders :noes: Meaning: I like his design! It makes an impact.

The story sounds very anime though, which is very fun :XD: Because it means that this can apply:
"Only in anime can you be backlit at night."

Black doesn't really suit him better :P Just here :XD:
I just wanted some fur, alright? x'D And the bare shoulders are pretty ;P
But I'm glad that you like the design ;)

I forgot to have that in my picture description x'D
I was honestly planning to! :shakefist:

This is really nice. Especially the shiny hair is awesome - it brings light into the picture.
I have no idea how you did the moon but whatever you did, you did a pretty good job. Also the sky looks hilarious. Well done. :clap:
And I loooove the ribbons. :XD:
They bring some kind of easiness into the whole composition...
Well - I have no idea if these were the right words 'cause it's some word by word translation... I could write the German words here but you wouldn't understand them better than my try in English, would you? :O_o:
However: It's a really nice work. :meow:

:iconlienwyn:
Lienwyn Featured By Owner Jun 2, 2010
Thank you :)

It's... two colours and gentle brush strokes x'D That's all there is to the moon, honestly :XD:
And I probably wouldn't, no :XD: I might have studied German for three years (two lessons a week) but what I remember is the basics and... well... how to curse at someone :XD: (since that's what I normally hear my father do when he uses the German he knows)

I am glad that you like it ^_^

But however it does look beautiful. :)

My dad curses in French! Sounds pretty elegant although he says the dirtiest words ever. :XD:
And I myself use English. :D

And yes, I do like it. :meow:

Umm... no. I'm not x'D I didn't even use blur or whatever...
I've started to practice on blending colours better with just brush strokes so... yeah :XD:

Oooh! That's the fun part about French - it sounds sophisticated but can be as bad as any other language.
I switch between English and Swedish... and sometimes German x'D

Mitia!! :la:
Awesome... It's strange to see him in black yes, and it gives a more grown-up touch to his usual appearance... Which is fascinating :XD:
The composition is wicked :D It just... it's a jump back to your older works and it looks really really great! With the frame and all that. Those red ribbons is delicious and I love the chains in the end of them ^^ I might read too much into it but I just love that detail.

Lovely lovely lovely ^^
... this means I really should get going with Zayed's design as well... not that I have time until summer vacation but planning never hurt anyone (... I think)
:heart: Mitia.... :heart:
