I've never seen a cooler picture of a human morphing into a creature or vice versa. This is just too great! Plus, it puts Kubo to shame when having him go from Pantera back to Espada in the manga. I really do like this, almost spiritual in a way with how you've painted the wisps.
The technique is absolutely masterful, but I don't think i'd have recognized his face if it weren't for the other Grimmjow parts. His expression is conflicted and torn and his lips lack even a hint of a sneer. If there was a way to make them wider (think Joker), that might do it, but I don't think you were shooting for that. Still, a truly lovely piece. Faces are hard to transfer from the Manga distortion to the sort of realism you have going on here.
THANK YOU SO MUCH ETAINFEY!!! I love this soooo much, the concept here of Grimmjow gradually transforming into his resurrección is so unique, original and never seen before that I'm instantly blown away right off my seat. It's truly devastatingly breathtaking and beautiful I like the blue glow on his left hand as his armor takes form (akin to the way it glows in the anime when he withdrew them), his jacked shredded and looking like it'll either dissolve away or eventually take shape as his armor like his hakama, tail forming and lengthening eerily, the muscles on his torso looks rock hard and wrapped tight around his skin I'd think nothing can pierce him, I especially can't stop staring at his wispy hair I'm so taken by it -it looked feathery soft that I'd want to run my hands through it to literally feel and know just how soft and silky, and I love the various shades of blue on it- and lastly (but not least) I love the sandy space-like background, it somewhat reminds me of the powerful sandstorm that swirled around him as he unleashed the full extent of his reiatsu at the seal to his true form and power.
Truly captivating and amazing sight to behold. Superb job, etainfey!

I...can't stop staring at this beautiful piece of artwork. The detail in it alone is amazing. His expression...just...wow. The shape and anatomy is downright PERFECT! His hair looks so soft. I wonder if he'd let me touch it. CX
