Spirits of Music - The Flute

Posted Aug 31, 2008, 4:35:04 PM

"As she played, all time stood still; whispers of night seemed to envelope us from the very notes sounding from the instrument. At that moment, the world turned only for her song."

The second in my series of Music spirits. Done with mechanical pencil on 9" x 14" sketchbook paper.

    This is just gorgeous! The details are amazing..... and you drew the flute right too! (You wouldn't believe how many people can't do that O.o) I can't imagine how much patience it took to finish something this big.

      I'm glad to hear it! I was worried a bit about the flute, since I know nothing about them. Thank goodness for numerous references!

      Thank you for your comment, it is much appreciated.

    Worship I love it!!! it looks so awsome. I agree with your choice for the background. You did an awsome job linking up your pics. The detail and textures look so good. I'm in total awe

      Thank you so much! I'm glad you think they fit together. I was worried about that. Now the trouble is to make all the rest of them link just as well. ;)

        i know you'll be able to do it! ^_^ i just hope my net will let me at least view them. my net connection keeps dropping in and out and my friend that has an account on here ended up with 7 of the same comments once, coz it kept restarting and resending the message. so embarrassing.

          Tongue No worries. It happens sometimes. If you end up accidentally having 7 of the same comments, let me know (or something of that type). I can delete them easily enough.

          Hopefully your net connection gets better, though. It's crappy not being able to surf cleanly.

            will do.
            I hope my net improves to. It might in a short while though... I hope

      I'm trying to keep working on the art part of my life.. It's slowed down of course, since midterms started back up again (and now will continue all the rest of the semester until finals come up and bite me).

      But hey! I might get some more done on the next installment today.

      Thanks for the comment, BR! I'm glad you like her.

    This is incredible! The attention to detail is a feast for the eyes, especially considering you did it with pencil and not with some program. Tongue
    I think my favorite part is the visual expression of the music pouring from the flute. I also love the way the pattern in her dress complements the border. Lovely!
