grim and mandy by KizukuDawn grim and mandy by KizukuDawn
so...tired...this took me....too long...and I don't appreciate the way it looks considering it took like, 3 hours. This is fan art of Bleedman work. He's an amazing artist! and I love the way he made the characters, so I wanted to add a bit of my own style to them. I was thinking, "wouldn't it be cool if grim lost his body for a bit to give Mandy charge of the scythe again?" yes. well, when I draw it, no. But, I liked the idea. :O what was I thinking?! I need to do another one. This doesn't do his artwork justice! It needs to be better! But, for now, this is what I got.


*Edit, just to show how much of a fan girl I am, here is a cosplay I did at AX a few ages back, I know it's not fantastic but hey, not many pple dress as older mandy...ever:

Thanks so much! X3 I do too. I think it only has a lot less faves than Grim and Mandy because Bleedman didn't fave that one. O_O I'm very happy that he faved at least one fan piece though, bless 'im. Thank you again ^.^ :heart:

I but recently finished reading Grim Tales and it was delectable. Some would say that it ruined their childhood memories of the cartoon, but I beg to differ. They -enhanced- them. I still have the fond memories of watching these shows, yes, but now I have new memories. The comic answers so many questions: what would it be like if these worlds were... well... "real"? If people actually died, souls were really at stake, etc. The comic delivers beautifully because it adds these concepts while keeping the cores of the characters intact.

Mandy... well, I gotta admit, there is no more perfect companion for Grim. Admittedly, it is pretty freaky to see him marry someone he saw was once a little girl, but then again, this is death incarnate. He's seen and done worst things. Seriously, though, no one else is nearly monstrous (or sexy, as portrayed) enough for the Grim Reaper XD

(PS: How the hell WOULD "that" work out, anyway?! I realize they didn't have any children... but they did have a honeymoon... best not to think on it...)

yes. Mandy from the Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy cartoon-Bleedman originally drew her like that, though--with a comic and story line and everything. It's awesome. :D

Uhm, I'm not quite sure what you mean, but, here's the original cartoon they were from [link] .
And here's the comic site of the later story:[link] --they come from the original cartoon at the first link, then spanned into the comic(second link) that explains how Grim and Mandy later have kids...it's weird. :blushes: I love it though.

You say that this isn't good?! This is awesome! Great job on the looks on Mandy, but to tell the truth, I didn't recognize her until I saw Grimm's head. :rofl:

Anyways, this is an awesome job! :winner:

If you Google Snafu comics--it'll get you too-here: [link]:official&client=firefox-a . Grab the 1st one on the list and see if it works, peez?? :please: I really hope that snafu didn't die or something, ya know? :confused: If you could check for me, that would be so appreciated. :please:

np and thanks i do need practice to get better and i do have time but sometimes i get in trouble for drawing in class when im suppose to be doing somenthing else in school oh well its my goal in life to get as good as people like you maybe better but that will be a little hard considering i try to always stick to bleedmans style oh well i am getting better anyway

Remember, practice does NOT make perfect. If anyone says that, they're full of poo. Practice makes you BETTER, and smarter! And I definitely know of the foils of drawing in class, I have partaken in that sin far too many times. :blushes: Somehow though, it probably gave me better art. :) And if you're on Devi there's all kinds of styles you can look at and learn from. :D All kinds of tutorials too, don't be afraid to use them. :#1:

Funny, I am not familiar with too many manga artists and generally it isn't "my style" but I appreciate the genre and this is my favorite of your pieces. If it doesn't look like the original artist, what the hell? I have heard that Van Gogh was terribly upset that he couldn't get the styles of other impressionists down as he would have liked and I happen to love Van Gogh's style much better than Gaugin or Monet, so !pfffft! keep on doing what you are doing!

Already did, long time ago, and kind of regret it lol. Cuz I've done some other Bleedman fan art that was much more time consuming/better looking and he didn't seem to like them when I sent them. Like, the mandy costume I made and stuff :( Oh well, I'm at least glad he faved at least one of my works. ~bows head honorably~ haha. Thank you! :heart:

I carefully used prismacolor markers for the coloring, and made some of the colors a tad darker, and lighter on photoshop. I really didn't do much on photo. I'm glad I didn't. Makes me feel good somehow. And, thank you! =D

There's an awesome online comic, on snafu-comics.com and there's a series called "Grim Tales from Down Below" made by a fellow deviantartist. You probably know all about this allready, but I'm telling you in case you don't. It's an awesome comic about Billy and Mandy in the future. That art piece I did is of Mandy when she's older in the comic. It's such an awesome comic! So is PPG Doujinshi! By the same artist. It's power puff girls meets Dexter, meets Samarai Jack, meets Courage the Cowardly Dog, etc.. all rolled into one story together. It's awesome! oops :blush: sorry. I stop now. :blahblah:
