grind 2011 by grindzone grind 2011 by grindzone
I'm constantly playing around with Grind's design, poor gal. Trying to take her trainwreck of a design and make it a bit less... annoying and a bit more controlled, lmfao. Trying to loose details that don't need to be there (like the raptor claw, etc).
Also trying to make her face a bit more reptilian and stylized differently. I dunno. Gonna keep playing around with her, but this is probs the closest I'll get to an actual ref sheet LOL.


Grind is mine~

Her expression and overall appearance get me giddy with inspiration. And those HANDS. Damn, they're huge! lol

Someday, I dunno when, I'm gonna make a character as badass as her. Seriously. This, like, drives me to draw better. fjld;asjfas;

I'm such a dork. :L

How do you give her those big-ass HANDS and still make it look so PROPORTIONAL!? :iconforeveraloneplz:
I love huge hands, but whenever I try to draw big hands it either makes the character look shorter than I want him/her to be or I end up drawing the character itself bigger... Thus making the the hands no longer look big...
:iconfffuuuplz:!

Help me. :'<

P.S.
I personally think she looks better with the raptor claw 'cause it gives her that reptilian feel. But tis only meh opinion. :meow:

I really don't know- it just takes getting used to I guess? :'D 'Cause making hands that large already throw off normal proportions, so I guess you have to compensate for that in other ways, if that makes sense? Just keep practicing it really, haha!

And that's fair. : D

Good flow between body and hands. Hands don’t seem bulky or awkward, nor do they conflict with the rest of the body. In my opinion this is successful character design.

Also, did you get your inspiration for expression and style from Dead Leaves?

grindzone Featured By Owner May 18, 2011  Professional Filmographer
OH NOOOOO

Hahaha I've actually never seen Dead Leaves, although I'm obvs quite aware of its existence (had some of my stuff compared to it before a few different times) but not, it's not a direct inspiration for me. But I do see the similarities in style!

It's a weird as fuck movie. But then it's Japanese. They're the master of weird as fuck. Just look at that along with "Cat Soup", "Mind Game", and more.
