Jack the Ripper (Kuro) by NinjaDragon3 Jack the Ripper (Kuro) by NinjaDragon3
Grell sutcliff as Jack the Ripper from Kuroshitsuji waiting for Mary Kelly!:D

I've wanted to do a drawing of butler/jack the ripper Grell for ages now and finally got around to it! I just adore this version of him and it's such a shame that hardly anyone draws Grell like this.-.- All anyone can think of is his flamboyant side but I think Grell is much more interesting when he is murderous and terrifying.:D
SO PLEASE STOP DRAWING HIM ALL CUTE AND GIVE ME SOME SCARY GRELL ART!!!!!......pretty please:heart:
Anyway I like to compare Grell to actual serial killers in that he has no empathy and next to no morals. I guess you could say that Grell has principals but not morals (thinking back to campania arc here).:P

As for the art, it's pretty simple. I referenced the window and simplified it and I also made Grell's outfit simpler. You know you are lazy when you simplify the simplest outfit in Kuroshitsuji.:P I'm still learning backgrounds but for now my only strategy is to scribble brown everywhere......-.-

Kuroshitsuji (black butler) and Grell Sutcliff belong to Yana Toboso.

Drawn and colored by me.

Couldn't ask for a better Jack the Ripper, even if it's a Grimm Reaper.

I agree! Grell and Madam Red are my favorite version.:)

Of course. They give Jack the Ripper a much more supernatural idea.

I agree with you. Grell Sutcliffe is a deranged sociopath who's incapable oflove and empathy.

Nicely done! U have a talent...pretty sure I've told u that already, but...
And I agree with you on the stop drawing Grell so cute and stuff. The Black Butler version does show him as a sort of cute, reliable character, but as for the REAL Jack the Ripper...not so much. ^_^' As always, amazing work and stay awesome. :3

I like the way he's sort of leering in the direction of the viewer, while still wearing something of an innocent expression. I must admit that I prefer butler!Grell's clumsy/silly side most of the time, but there is something about his dark side that I also like. And this picture is definitely and wonderfully dark :D

kdjfakshgjhf OMGGG YES MORE SCARY GRELL PLEASE. I love this piece! I don't see a lot of Butler!Grell art and I love that you drew him like this as opposed to looking cutesy and incompetent. I agree with you 100% on his character; it's my headcanon that Grell has zero empathy for humans (and perhaps even for other Reapers-- though I DO think he cares about William o__o). I like my Grell psychotic and creepy, not cute and sweet and delicate. FAVORITE

Thanks alot!!!:D Yeah I wish there was more butler grell art cause I've looked everywhere for some (So im trying to add to the small pile).:( As for Grell caring about William, well I'm not sure but if they have known each other for a long time then I suppose it's slightly possible.:) though I've always thought Grell only liked people like William and Sebastian for their looks and that he did not genially care about them.

This is amazing! I also prefer seeing Grell scary. Way too many people think that his lighter side is the only thing that makes this character and that aggravates me to no end. You did an amazing job showing Grell as the ripper. It's such a calm pose, but knowing what he's planning to do makes it terrifying. You did an amazing job on his features and I love the lighting.

I love getting comments from you! They are always so detailed!!!:heart: And I know right?!!? The fact that Grell is so complex is what makes him a great character. Not that he is cute(cause let's face it every other anime character is).-.- And thankyou so much!!!:D

I submitted this piece to a group called "Glorious Red Ripper" which is all about Grell being bloody and terrifying. It does not allow cutesy art of Grell, so if you like him better as a terrifying, murdering, psychopath, you should definitely go check it out!

Also... I FREAKING LOVE THIS!!! You did an awesome job!!! The bright areas of his face contrast so nicely with the dark background, but there's still enough information to tell you what it is. Absolutely gorgeous.
