It is done. I honestly consider this my best artwork in my entire portfolio, and I'm incredibly proud of it.

My mother is a concert pianiste, and her birthday is coming up next week, so I decided to finally draw this, since I finally felt confident enough. My mother also loves everything to do with art, and art nouveau in special, which is how I got the inspiration. That, and I got a LOT of inspiration from VikJones who has drawn several amazing art nouveau commissions of my TerrApocalypse characters. I finally created my own :love:

Almost everything in this artwork is hand drawn, except for the sheet music behind the dogs and in the bottom. I drew the piano keys and the background piano using the pen tool in Photoshop (without it I couldn't have done it), including every. single. string. You may count the strings if you like, there's the exact amount there that a grand piano has! All instruments were drawn with the help of photos, and the text in the bottom was created with the help of several artworks by Alphonse Mucha. I must admit that the lower part of the dress was drawn directly from one of Alphonse Mucha's artworks; "Music" (appropriate huh?). The corners of the artwork contain my (and my mother's) dogs, a Cavalier King Charles Spaniël and a bastard-Kooiker. Oh yeah, and the reason for the violin and flute is that my mother is super skilled on those instruments as well!

A special thanks goes to queenofeagles, keokotheshadowfang, DaffyDaydreamer, Lady-Abbington, and Eleynah who were there for most of the time during my streams to give me A LOT of advice on composition, colouring, extra details, and I don't know what, omg guys, without you I couldn't have done it! Streams are so motivating to me <3

I sincerely hope my mother will like it! (I bet she will!)

Time taken: ~30 hours
Number of layers: 76 (normally I only use 5, holy smokes)

EDIT: I had no idea about DA's print sizes... I now put a border around it so I can actually print it and send it to my mother!

that looks so awesome, I'm glad I saw this being made! really, this is one of my favs of your art, your mother is such a lucky person! Moar art nouveau please - maybe not with grand pianos though, I'll not torture you with that, haha! I'd love to see epic fabric flow (but now in your style ;))

Hahaha, that grand piano took so long. It was actually a blast though to draw it and see it come to life <3 And yeah, I'm already planning to make these as well for my father's and stepfather's birthdays, and if I have time for my TA characters! Time...  xD

Pfff, you only answered question after question, and give tips that I hadn't thought of to make it more epic, etc =P

(Let's hope they don't read this) Since my stepfather is a conductor, I want to draw a massive orchestra and ~100 man choir in the background, and Gregorian-themed illustrations on the side (and more music history). For my father, who's an organist, I want the organ from the Laurenskerk (Rotterdam) being all epic in the top and on the sides, and a church structure making up pillars and the background. Maybe some stained glass!

I wanted to study it, honestly, but my parents said "no" because at the moment it's incredibly difficult finding a job or enough concerts in music..
