The Violinist by Lathrin The Violinist by Lathrin
The violinist!
What can I say, I have always found the violin a beautiful instrument~
So it was only a matter of time until Ill draw one :)

Pre coloured - [link]
You may not notice, but I tried to make a more colourfull colouring.
I first made a layer of coloured shading\lighting with colour pencils (yellow orange for lighting, blue\purple for shading. and some red and green thrown in between)
Than I drew as I usualy do, mainly markers and some coloured pencils (again). Some crayons, coloured pen here and there.

The scan killed some of the colours (though less than I feared).
I think this may be the best colouring I have ever done.. Except maybe [link]

Sorry for talking so much XD

Markers, coloured pencils\pens, multiliner pen, crayons
18*25cm

Hopefully it doesnt mean I wont be able to create something as good again XD
Theres a limit to how many times someone can outdo himself. Unless he grows in abilty~ (thus not needing to outdo himself to do soemthing well)

I'm sure you will be producing inspired works in no time :)

I do not believe that at all, one can always do better, and we never stop improving ourselves. The day we give up, that's the day we start to die.

That's getting to nihilism there :P We die, yes, but what is more significant is HOW we live. We may as well get the most out of life, it is the only one we got :)

Awesome, I cannot wait to see more :)

I agree, but that doesnt change the fact that we all got an expiriation date.

I really like this, the way you color stuff is just awesome.
And I think you should draw close ups more often. ^^

Thanks, though I personally think this one was in some ways the best colouring I ever did XD

Probably, but I try not to stick to one thing for too long, and instead try out different things, especially things Im not used to do.

its beautiful! it makes me wanna go do the waltz or something. it really gives the essence of music and lullaby. your colour pad was well lain out. the green dress with the brown hair goes excellent together. you did great on the ripples in the dress to represent the shadows and where the legs are.

Thank you very much! ^___^
I hope I was clear on how I did it ^^;
I used watercolour pencils to be exact, they work great with markers in general :)
(I originally tried this combination because I had only 12 markers and was way too limited with such a small variety of colours to mix. Watercolour pencils are a relatively cheap way to mix new colours)

I do not the pencils yet...glad you are specific. I have watercolor crayons.
Now I will have fun with a new medium and like you say, easy on the wallet.
