The Harpist by tjtreece The Harpist by tjtreece
Waste of a weekend? I think not. ;)

I REALLY like how this turned out, especially because it's my first somewhat unique concept. Lyra and a concert harp seem to go together quite nicely. I'm also glad I moved on to shading and lighting. It takes longer but the image looks a lot better with it.

Edit: Thanks a lot to the guys at EQD for featuring this in drawfriend #568!: [link]

Edit 2: Aaaaand it got featured again! This time in an instrumental music post: [link]

Never heard of it. I'm kind of a big hipster when it comes to music. I usually only listen to really unpopular stuff.

Beautiful! :D

That reminds me, I wonder what's the relationship between Lyra and Harpo (the harpist stallion in Octavia's music group.)

Considering that they have identical cutie marks, I'd say they're probably related somehow. Sort of like how Twilight and her brother have similar cutie marks.

Wow, this is wonderful. There are so many things I love about this. First and foremost, her eyes. They're beautiful and so elegant. It really works. Also, the Dress and earring are really fitting with her playing playing the harp like that. The whole thing just gives her this exotic air of elegance that she isn't normally associated with. It's like seeing a good friend suddenly all dressed up and being struck by the realization that she is a beautiful woman.

Interesting observations! She is at a concert hall so of course she needed to look her best! ;)
