Commission: Kivara Manx by MaGLIL Commission: Kivara Manx by MaGLIL
First Commission!
Commissioned by :iconkitkatkoi: character(s) belong to her.
This is Kivara Manx, aka Glenn, and his Shadow Dragon, Button.

This is also my first try at (almost) lineless digital paintings. I really wanted to work on cloth, I love cloth.
And the violin was unexpectedly amazing to draw. I def. want to draw more violins now. But apparently the bow is too tight, but I wouldn't know anything about violin physics honestly >< sorry violin nerds ;p

Thanks Deviantart for the daily dev!!!

Lol, bow's only too tight if it's a modern bow - they used to look like that a long time ago, and some are still made for people who like to perform music with accurate, "period" instruments~

Kudo's for mostly-linelessness! Check out lots of reference-pics (of both instruments & people playing them) if you plan to draw more like this. What you have now is good, but there are some details that could be improved.

i really like it.. everything is great, but it looks as if he's playing it, but the violin and bow are very stoic. i think it's just because there isn't any tension in the bow that it makes it look very static, like it was just copy pasted in

I love that instead of a conventional violin bow, you drew a type of baroque bow.

^^ there, the baroque bow is the topmost one.

This picture really embodies the fiery spirit of lots of violinist. I love it to pieces.

Oh, and instead of the bow being too tight, there's not enough hairs on the bow, but at the same time, it works.

Awesome drawing! I luved it even more right when my itunes started to play Les Rois Du Monde (It was right after I clicked the thumbnail to view this picture). I thought the picture went splendidly with the mood and very beginning of the song. The songs in French, but it sounds so awesome and it's not just some other love song, which makes me love it even more.
Anyways, I love the atmosphere of your drawing and the almost soft colors you used; I thought it clashed quite well, as well as complement, with the black in the background. There's so much to like about this picture!
