The Music In you by LordAvatarZ The Music In you by LordAvatarZ
17 x 11
9B Pencil
2B 0.7mm Mech.
25 Hours.

I have always wanted to draw a violinist, for I really love the sound of a violin. So during the whole process of drawing this one my mind was filled with inspiration (while listening to classical music...:))

I'm glad my friend Raelynn, who's a fantastic and funny girl, also a great artist, would agree to pose for me, so I'd also like to dedicate this drawing to her.

I haven't been really satisfied with my drawings for a long time, this drawing really is a breakthrough for me. I hope you enjoy this piece as much as I do, and thank you for spending your time to take a look at it.

there's a woman pretending this is her art and selling prints of it. [link]
LordAvatarZ Featured By Owner Jun 17, 2012
Wow, thank you so much for telling me this. I have a watermark on my image apparently the "true artist of the works" as she claims to be didn't even notice that. I will file a complaint.
frightenn Featured By Owner Jun 18, 2012
The account that she had all the work on is currently down, so there isn't any way to file a complaint with facebook, but if you look at the page about her theft and see any of your works there, you can download them. If you want to pursue any other action against her, that's your choice of course.

Beautiful :) The violin just seems to come straight out of the picture, like I can almost hear her playing. Fantastic, really.

Jasmine-Jean Featured By Owner Jul 25, 2009   General Artist
Oh, woo hoo!!! I love this! Instant fave. Did the 9B really come out that black, or have you contrasted this in PS?
LordAvatarZ Featured By Owner Aug 1, 2009
I did adjust the contrast in PS. However badly I wanted the 9B to turn out as dark as this, it just couldn't do the job
Jasmine-Jean Featured By Owner Aug 2, 2009   General Artist
Looks wonderful.

I really do like this. The contrasts in the light and dark are amazing.

Yeah, I played the violin for five years in school. It is not the easiest of instruments to play.
allforhim2 Featured By Owner Feb 16, 2009
amazing.... im a fellow violinist and this is gorgeous. the structure of the violin is spot on.
anime2thug Featured By Owner Feb 15, 2009  Student Artist
i love music also. but i don't play the violin. i sued to, but i switched to string bass, because the high E string on the Violin hurt my ears too mmuch to play it. but you captured the violin so well and the person playing it. it amazes me.
