Oh she's HOT!!! VERY COOL! You should do more pics of this monster hottie (thank god she didn't inherit the first grendel's bad looks, lol)

if she has anything to do with the Beowulf version, than its too bad she's out to feast on my bones and grind my flesh against walls, as well as rip through me... still, she is pretty, and pretty hot, as they say.

Wait. As in the Grendel from the viking story of Beowulf? or is she based off of a different source? Either way, she looks cool.

a sinister looking nemises and a strong looking opponent all at the same time. It's a good pic, but I won't like that the right hand does look a tad awkward, but still, other qualities such as the coloring, anatomy, and design redeem the picture despite it.

Hariel555 Featured By Owner Oct 12, 2006
I've read 'Beowulf' and I've played the game 'Mace: the Dark Age' and have always seen Grendel as some monsterous beast. I must that this Grendel of yours is quite refreshing.

You're quite talented at your drawings.

...and I'm not just saying that because I'm a guy staring at a half-naked female in front of me >.> Not me, nooooooo... course not!

Either way, the colour scheme of the character oddly matches the background colour, I happen to find that amusing.

Also, the expression caught my interest. It's almost as though she derives some sadistic pleasure before releasing the bow string and, inevitably, scoring a kill. Bah! lookitme... I'm dramatically rambling.

Ahem, anyways, nicely composed, as are the rest of your drawings. (I would comment on them to, but there's just too much for me type in one sitting, heh).

The white tatoos (or is that skin reflection) are cool.

This is definitely one of your best pieces yet and I've already favorited it...^_^

she's hot
XLRP Featured By Owner Oct 2, 2006
think Beowoulf would have had a harder time(if not lost) against this Grendal. Although Grendel rolled up killing like 30 people in no time flat, strait punked Unferth. You incarcerate that in to this with a very cute michiviouse smile.

Grendal was cold ruthless, powerfull as god only knows and would make great boss character. Although It dose spark a few questions. If you can do this with Grendel the possiblities of what you could with the dragon? Then gives the new queston of how well would she fare against Grimhild or Skade? The world may never know.

Keep on doing what you do.

Nice, I like the shading and shine. I've never heard of a Grendel or a Drow, but I know what an Orc is so yeah! :XD: Are they alike?
Neo-Grendel Featured By Owner Oct 2, 2006
Interesting... I had no idea there were other Grendels besides the one from the Beowulf Epic, which is where I took my name from. :-P
Giolon Featured By Owner Oct 2, 2006  Hobbyist Digital Artist
No Tolkien orc ever looked that hot! ;)

Regarding Ravenwulf's comment about the bowstring: As a nationally competitive archer at the collegiate level, I have to disagree. The most common draw style is to use three fingers -- one above and two below the arrow. That said, it's something of personal preference how many fingers one wants to use.
crybringer Featured By Owner Oct 1, 2006
WOW, love! :wow: This is what I like to see! A real challenging perspective and tone and everything!
You've got a ways to go to get control over those hands, but the body is sooooooo good!

Are those tribal patterns of some kind on her thighs? That's the only thing that throws me off--other than that, her gray skin is hawt and just the costume and weaponry and pose is GREAT! :love:

This is most fav-worthy!
Hehehe, grendels... the best explaination is none.
