Obviously, today is Farael Day.
I've had a sketch of this sitting on my computer for the longest time (by which I mean a few months at least) and just NEEDED to do something with it. It's the only picture I've done of Farael with his violin, so that's definitely worth noting.
Nothing hotter than a pretty boy with a pretty instrument.
I'm immensely pleased with the fact that that neither the instrument nor the pose is referenced (the only thing I needed to look up was the shape of the holes in the bridge, that funky little piece of pale wood that holds the strings up). As some of you may have learned via my "getting to know you" meme, I play the viola and took lessons seriously for about six years, so I have it pretty firmly ingrained in my head what almost everything related to the stringed-instrument family looks like. Edit:
's suggestion, I moved the lower corners behind his wings. I think I like it better this way.Textures by `Princess-of-Shadows and *gild-a-stock, brush by ~green-eyed-butterfly.
