o.O I'm in awe. This is incredible! The shading, the highlights, the blending and careful detail in the fingers and instrument... the curve of the body of musician and instrument.. Remarkable! The longer I look at it the more I find fascinating. I do wonder about the forearms though.. if they are too skinny or if it's just the angle. Gorgeous piece of work! Should be a poster. :)
