Another commission, in a similar style as the last one. This character is a half-elf bard that I decided to paint in formal clothing, as if she's giving a small concert or something.

The funny thing about this piece was that it was just supposed to be a character-only commission but I decided to throw in a piano, but then the piano made the left side of the image far too heavy so I had to throw in more background elements to even the composition out again. LOL. Well, I think the client (who is super nice and patient and awesome) was happy anyway :)

Photoshop CS3

Wheee~

P.S. The new version of deviantart is quite lovely IMO, it seems to function the way I want it too and I don't find myself having a hard time finding where things are. huzzah!

Really beautiful. And the colours are just delicate and warm, though very fragile. It feels breakable, and that everything in this scene should be in slow motion or in deep deep serenity - almost sorrow. Gorgeous fabric & lighting.

The anatomy looks abit off f. The facial features seem abit low of the face (the head), she looks alittle odd framed too and elongated looking (alittle) perhaps her back is too long. HOWEVER I'm not trying to sound like I know what I'm talking about since I'm no pro in anatomy. I'm just telling you how I see it. Overally, really it's still a wonderful piece. :hug: Fantastic work as usual Yumedust.

Hmmmm... Where to start. I'll start by saying this is a wonderful piece :D. It's good to know you paid attention to every detail, this also includes putting the sharp/flat keys in the right place. Half the people, when painting an image with a piano in it, don't get the keys in the right place. Yet, you did, so good job to that. I love how you make light coming out of the window focus on the figure. Yet I feel you could have put a little more work into the cello to make this piece 100% complete. Overall, great job.

Very nice work on the details. My former fiancee used to play the piano, and I would just sit and watch and listen for hours. She had much the same look on her face sometimes.

Very nice work, especially with the patch of light behind her. The contrast really helps to focus the eye on the subject.

Simply lovely, it's soft and vibrant but really, i'm just in love with her expression. It looks like she's really feeling the music she is playing... like she's listening to the ending ring of the piano notes being struck. :heart:
