General Grievous Pre-Cyborg by Ragaru General Grievous Pre-Cyborg by Ragaru
I really can't find enough patience(and time for that sake) to sitt down and do som proper art... Though, I have alot of projects in progress but i am to much into details so I never get to complete them...but hopefully i will soon...

Anyway this is yet another quickly done skethcy looking piece... I am a HUGE fan of Grievous so I was tremendously disappointed when i saw the unmasked pre-cyborg Grievous...
It was much better when he was the masked mysterious Kaleesh Warrior, whos eyes we only knew...
So nothing felt more naturaly than making my own version of him...Which made me feel a little more comfortable about grievous being revealed...

Well, nothing much but I felt I had to submit it.
The background symbol is just something I came up with to match the style of the Kaleesh.
And I'm trying to find an interesting signature...

This is much better and a hell of a lot closer to what I imagined him to look like! Perfect!

It's hinted he still may have some of his face left. If that's what he looked like with his body intact, I'm afraid to know what's left

Come on, it's not that bad. if drawn well (with a little artistic licence) the design given to them can be very cool. [link]

Well, personally There is nothing about the official design that appeals to me at all so to speak. Only the eyes, which is the only thing to be associated, with Grievous' appearance, might be appealing.
The only interpretation of the the Kaleesh species, despite it's minimal reveal of the features, is the Visionaries graphic story: "The Eyes of Revolution", illustrated by Warren Fu, who created the original design for Grievous.

this is definitely how they should have made him look under the helmet...

Oh, looking at it now, I feel somewhat ashamed over not having put more time into it...
This isn't bringing Grievous justice, I should consider redoing it with my current style and abilities.. but still it remains far better than the official one ;P

oh you don't have to sweat over it, most of the SW concept art (or those that I saw) is much worse in quality than your grievous so this is a treat really :D

Well thank you, then I'd imagine a redux of this piece would be quite interesting to many fans of the character =D

Neither can I. Worst thing they've ever done, since they created Jar Jar and in addition pulled him into politics...

captdiablo Featured By Owner May 20, 2009
Haha, well said. Jar Jar should only have been for comedic relief not a freakin representative of like.. anything.
Anywho, I am going to ignore the official fugly Grievous and just take yours as the original :)

Well that's what Grievous should look like, a badass scary alien, who looks like he's gonna eat you for dinner, not like a fuckin rat/bat thing that was repeatedly hit in the face with a frying pan.

Ha ha ha, you said it!

Hope it becomes the official description of Pre-Cyborg Kaleesh warrior Grievous:

"Qymaen jai sheela. A kalee warrior born on the home world Kaleesh, his appearance is best described as a fuckin rat/bat thing that was repeatedly hit in the face with a frying pan, which in his older years lead to his "friends" almost killing him to give him an extreme makeover. Resulting in the formidable cyborg droid General Grievous, who definitely never cried again when he stared in the mirror after the makeover... He lived happily the rest of his life until he was killed by a racist general, calling him droid several times before he mercilessly blasted his internal organs way out of the SW universe..."

...That'd be Awesome =D

Very cool. Looks a lot more evil than the 'official' (bah) version. Love especially the spikes on the head.

Sorry to advertise, but since there are so few Grievous fans I gotto take what opportunities I see. I don't know if you're at all interested in roleplaying, but some friends and I have been maintaining a forum-based RPG set on Grievous' homeworld of Kalee for several years now, and we are in desperate need of more players.

Give it a look, if you like.

But to be honest, one don't need to do much to make a pre-cyborg Grievous that looks more impressive than the official one XD
I mean, he looks like a oversized lizard-rat-bat thing, how could that possibly turn out as some cool looking Star Wars villain?

O.o
yes, me too, when I saw the pre-cyborg grievous unmasked I stay like ...
waht a mess T.T
but now I stay more confortable with my own version of him too, wich is very a like to yours... really my version of the kaleesh are very a like to Turians from the game Mass Effect, 99% better from the "truly" kaleesh face.
Your version is great!
two thumbs up!

Ragaru Featured By Owner Jan 16, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Thanks!
I Love the Turians as well...Especialy Saren which is pretty simillar to Grievous, in the way of being a Cyborg...

Anyway, I didn't put much work into it. and I tried to get a more typical SW look since my style(when i draw by hand) is more realistic and detaild...
Might make a better version when I get time...
