GFT 46 - C2E2 Exclusive by SquirrelShaver GFT 46 - C2E2 Exclusive by SquirrelShaver
Some of you may have seen this being colored on Nei Ruffino's 'Livestream' a few days ago. In case you're wondering this will be another exclusive release for Grimm Fairy Tales #46 at this years C2E2 convention in Chicago this April.

I really ejoyed doing this one because I really love the vintage 30's vibe. To me it feels like a time, where though life was a bit harder to live, but people lived simpler and more honorably than most generations since. It just seems like a real authentic period to live in. Plus the art in everything was astonishing. Everything was hand made and super detailed from the architecture to the cloths people wore. It all retains a lot of romance to me so this piece was a real joy to hired for.

The idea was to great the Grimm girls, Sela and Belinda, and "Bonnie and Clyde" characters which I thought was pretty cool too.

Hope to see more of you at the show!

Hi there! First of all I really love your work. Been following it for a while and been getting a lot of inspiration from your designs. I'm hoping to submit some work to Zenescope this October at the NYCC.
I really like your attention to detail in this piece and its that extra time put into it that really gets a lot of people's attention. A lot of younger artists forget to do the same amount of work into the background as they do their main figures. A lot of editors look at that from my own experiences.
If I may say (and not to sound like I'm taking shots at your work), there are a few anatomical issues that kind of need addressing. The girl holding the tommy gun arm is a bit too long. It looks loop sided compared to the one going behind her back. The second girl's shoulder looks a little high on her figure and she looks really uncomfortable. Also the hand holding the revolver is really small.
Those are just some observations I saw. Otherwise, like I said I really dig your work and enjoy your deviations!

beautiful lines - you did a fantastic job giving the feel of the 1920's. It really was a romantic era that was fueled by the gentleman's respect code of honor.
