Gellert Grindelwald by madcarrot Gellert Grindelwald by madcarrot
Another boring crotch-up picture, but until I'm no longer buried in study for my final exams, dynamic poses will have to wait.

Speaking of poses, this started off as a sketch to put Grindelwald to paper, but I liked his smirky little smile and shushy finger, so I coloured him.

For the greater good. Uh-huh. Suuure.

I think you may have just become my favorite artist on DA
madcarrot Featured By Owner Mar 27, 2013
That is a very high honour. I don't think I can live up to it, but thank you. :)

Perfectly evil smirk, but with the idea that this boy could easily put on an innocent face. The red on him is PERFECT. And the bloody words behind him again, fits so well.

And to top it off the boy is cute. Easy to see how Albus could be taken in and fall for him.

i love the way you wrote "for the greater good"

He looks just like your Evan Rosier, but I still think it's masterfully done : ).
Go You
madcarrot Featured By Owner Jul 27, 2009
Heh, actually my take on Evan Rosier was purposefully that of a friend of mine, who wrote about him back before the 6th and 7th books had been released. So while he looks so much like Grindelwald, Grindelwald only existed in JKR's notes at that time. Unfortunate coincidence.

Maybe Rosier fashioned himself after young Grindelwald. A sad fanboy. ;D

I was going to say he looked like Evan Rosier :) I like the idea of him fashioning himself to look like Grindelwald though. Nice job!
At first I couldn't tell what was said at the back, then I realised. Riiight, so everything was for the greater good, then?? :D

Very awesome! He looks so delectably evil! <3
TheBlackTheatre88 Featured By Owner May 10, 2009
with this beautifully drawn grindelwald and your beatufully sketched young dumbledore, why dont you draw them together?
madcarrot Featured By Owner May 10, 2009
Because I have so many things I want to do that nothing ever gets done at all. D:
TheBlackTheatre88 Featured By Owner May 15, 2009
awww, i hope that one day you'll draw it. It would be interesting to see
AdriiiSnape Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2009
Holy crap. Very sinister. Scares the crap outta me. o-O I'd just die right there if I saw this guy. I mean seriously. He matched Dumbledore's power in evil for goodness sake! For the greater good. Sure.

Poor Dumbledore.

Great job on this. The background pulls this together nicely and makes it even more sinister than his eyes and creepy smirk already made it. :o

jazzistanders Featured By Owner Sep 8, 2008
Sends chills down my back everytime I look at it...
and believe me, I did it more than once. His expression is simply great and he's one of my favourites
withinsimony Featured By Owner Jun 25, 2008
teh excellent!
BowlsOfRain Featured By Owner Jun 2, 2008
That's perfect! That's about just how I see Grindelvald!...

Of course, my ability to visualize images in my head precisely is so poor and dodgy, I'll end up looking at this again later and decide that he doesn't look anything on how I imagine him, but for the time being he definitely looks like "my" Grindelvald.

Innocent blue eyes and blonde hair, but an incredibly malevolent and dangerous look on his face. Perfecto! :D
CallThePatentOffice Featured By Owner May 29, 2008
this is excellent,
hey, have you ever seen the movie, 'hot fuzz'??
"...the grea'er gooood" hahhaa
pikabay Featured By Owner Mar 15, 2008
WOW. I love your art, and this is fantastic.
I made him my desktop background. My mom practically screamed when she logged onto my account and he popped up. ^^
AFav Featured By Owner Feb 24, 2008

Ahh, Dumbledore's one true love.

I definitely do see a bit of Lestat in him.

Well, you see it, not me. Can't stand Anne Rice.
Chimeres-Mirinar Featured By Owner Jan 24, 2008
Grindelwald, I love you.
ViciousCherry Featured By Owner Dec 17, 2007  Hobbyist General Artist
He has this whole "Lestat" thing going on for him. I can see now what all the hullabaloo was about. Yum. :+fav:!
maiyue Featured By Owner Dec 8, 2007  Hobbyist Traditional Artist

madcarrot Featured By Owner Dec 8, 2007
Ah, yes, it's on the French HP Lexicon. :)

centaurfreak Featured By Owner Nov 12, 2007
he looks awesome
limited-fantasy Featured By Owner Nov 11, 2007
He reminds me of Dorian Gray in this piece. Handsome and young, but with an ugly inside.

Love this one. The crotch up pose works for this one and I didn't think it a boring pose either. This is currently my favorite fan art of Grindelwald. ^^
Cassandra-Rose Featured By Owner Nov 10, 2007
Cute I love it as always.

Ooohhh, much love for this! :D You've captured what I loved about Grindelwald when I first read book 7. He looks so awsome and slightly crazy. XD

Awesome pic, prettier than I pictured him.
shadow-piper Featured By Owner Nov 7, 2007
Oh yay, the wizard Hitler XD Nice depiction, you don't see a whole lot of art of him.
MichellePrebich Featured By Owner Nov 7, 2007   Filmographer
He has a Lestat quality about him, well done.
Ludichrist Featured By Owner Nov 7, 2007
I like this one BUT... it looks like the sleeves are too long for him or something. like he's wearing "daddy's" clothes or something. apart from that... he's pretty cool only because his hairs like mine if my hair was a little shorter... AND blonder.. hmm.

Gellert Grindelwald: My finger still smells of my beloved Albus... Mmmmm <3
