Oh. My. Goodness. I can't TELL you how happy it makes me to see that you made his fingers in the right positions!!!! :'D (tears of joy) I'm a violinist. And you pretty much just won more brownie points.
Lol. That's one way to do it. x] Another way, since you have so many followers, would be to post a poll asking your fans to post pictures of themselves playing their stringed instruments. But... on second thought, that could go south really fast! Lol. Your fan art is FINALLY finished! AND you don't get it until you update Key.
String instruments are evil... EVILLLLLLLLL. >:[ But that's a very pretty cello! *_* And your minstrel's hawt heee <3 I love all the colors you're starting to use in your recent pictures too! *_* The highlights on his sleeves and the greens on the bottom of the picture for this one~ :3
Thanks! OOh color pencil huh? those are hard. x_x I think uhh only tip I can offer is maybe when coloring something that's supposed to be 1 color, don't be afraid to use like 4 colors. Like a blue shirt could also be shaded with purple, green or even yellow or red depending on the lighting... Dunno if that makes any sense, but yeah.
