BEHOLD. It's more than a year old x.x ( :D and my drawings hardly changed at all from this)
-submitted cuz I got nothing else~

I really like the full view :P

Art for an artbook :D i can finally post it
OTL it looks much better in versions that I crop out for teasers


I wanted to create an effect of the violin pulling the birds' soul in, or give soul to the birds. But I couldn't make that work without disturbing everything else xD
TAT they seem so motionless ;u;

Hm I eventually named this character during my summer school days, just gotta find those notes.

:wow: Your work has a lovely, bright visual style, and all the elements seem so wonderfully musical, giving violinists something to contemplate and enjoy. I love the expressiveness of the soloist, and the almost surreal setting of the birds, and their cages, of which the musician is an important part. The idea of bringing the souls of the birds into the instrument is very intriguing.

There is a beautiful Christmas piece by Pablo Casals, called, The Carol of the Birds, and your lovely work makes me think of it. Thanks for such a touching work. :rose:

Umm, did the artbook get done? I was supposed to submit a piece for it, but I became overwhelmed by work :(

I really like the composition in this! o u o I think your idea of the violin pulling in the birds worked well.
and the shading, woooow. I like the flat brush you used * - * it reminds me of oil paint.

I've always wanted to use the flat brush for shading but I don't think it suits my style :'> maybe when I get better at values

no no the full size is totally fine * v * yay fast internet!

:iconkuryuki:
kuryuki Featured By Owner Oct 8, 2012
Lol. 8D I use flat sometimes just to make things look more..."higher lvl" cuz of the texture the brush come with :D
that..or I forget to change back to round.
I think it's easier with flat though, everything just blends better o.o/

alicenpai Featured By Owner Oct 8, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
hahahaa tbh I hardly blend my stuff. I like my work to be neat and precise. when I do blend my stuff, it ends up pretty messy. because I'm bad with values, I tend to just throw in random colours wherever I like. so yeah, messy.

I guess we have different styles but I do like painterly stuff! I should probably try painting more often ; u ;;; but omg so busy finishing WIPs and school crap > A <
