Her Violin by HungryxHungryxHippos Her Violin by HungryxHungryxHippos
Oil Painting

This is an oil painting of my sister with her violin. =) This piece was really a challenge for me given that I was aiming for a more impressionist feel. :)
I really consider this piece a new milestone on my journey through art. I know the media... now I need to learn how to bend it to my will. :D

Edit: Wow a daily deviation! Thanks so much `PurpelBlur and thanks to everyone else for the faves and what not, I appreciate your support! :huggle:

Daily Deviation

Given 2010-11-26
A poetic capture of the relationship between a musician and violin.

Her Violin by =HungryxHungryxHippos ( Featured by PurpelBlur )
Extremely good, and detailed drawing of a woman holding her violin. She nearly looks real! One thing you need to improve is the way you shaded her neck. It looked as if she was too hot, and going red!! Apart from that though, the hair must have been one of the things you spent most time on, as it looks pretty much the best thing!
The dress even looks like fabric!! Her hand look very boney, but I cannot tell if you wanted that or not. The violin looks authentic!!
Carry on with these wonderful drawings! They impress everyone! I'm sure!
What do you think?

Well thank you. :) Indeed she is, she's got natural pretty blonde hair and big blue eyes! I get jealous sometimes. Heehee. =P She's a real sweetie though, and still loves music!

I have a very good instructor who taught me how to use oil paints. :D She definitely taught me well.

I know how that is. My sister has blonde hair and blue eyes. I never minded the hair, but I wanted those eyes. I've got dark hair and hazel eyes. xD

I want /your/ instructor. :D lol!

I'm so sorry, I totally missed your message! It just popped out at me when someone else commented. o.O

Thank you for your kind comments. :hug:

I truly hope there is an aterlife, thinking there might not be one is just... frightening somehow to me. I just have to keep believing. :)
