Beauty of Melody by GenevieveGT Beauty of Melody by GenevieveGT
My New Years post for everyone I hope you all have had a fantastic New Year so far ;)

Although I liked the line art for this piece, I never wanted to finish the colouring...it was probably because of the detailing. Anyways, the character is holding a Chinese instrument called a guqin which in contrast to the atmosphere of this piece has a much richer and lower tone to it. I originally had darker purples and blues as the overall colour scheme but found the instrument stood out much better with a lighter setting.

Enjoy everyone and be sure to check out my twitter account for updates to PandaPad.Com! [link]

Wow! i love the colors and design on this one. The only that kinda drives me, is that the arms seem to long and the hands slightly too big

I guess the enlarging on the hands to emphasize the playing of the instrument and the elongated neck and limbs to test a new style didn't go well with this composition...

This piece really looks amazing :wow:. The light colors with the contrast of the instrumental look quite well; you can definitely see that the instrument stands out a bit more. Lovely details and an overall beautiful piece of art. Though personally I love the colors :heart:. Give a kind of dreamy and peaceful atmosphere.
