Aakyra (Jul 7, 2008)
This is a masterpiece! Every detail is perfect .... and I agree with Roxy, your ability to see and reflect back this image is a huge part of your artistic gift! We all use references, until we we thoroughly learn a subject and even then we may need to use references for lighting or composition or other details to surround the subject. This piece screams love and talent, beauty and passion! Bravo! This is beyond magnificent!
Cameo (Jul 8, 2008)
I had this idea too, but couldn't accomplish it. You did a magnificent job!
Roytje (Jul 8, 2008)

Pandora (Aug 2, 2008)
This is sooooooooo beautiful. Looking at the keys of the piano and seeing the porcelin shine on the keys is magic. The colors of the brilliant red that is almost see through is blowing me away. Oh how I wish I could this this!
Felistorm (Aug 4, 2008)

Anna (Aug 16, 2008)

Axil62 (Jan 6, 2009)
I went over the comments 3 or 4 times to see what my comment was... I can't believe I didn't comment on this. Absolutely one of the best. I really love looking at it. So beautiful.
Bubblicious (Feb 22, 2009)
Wowzas! I know my commenting is late, but I only joined a couple days ago xD Any way, I love this picture. I could just stare at it for hours and hours! It has so much detail, all the time you put into it was not wasted at all.
wolfchr1 (Feb 23, 2009)
stunning. truely
xiau (May 20, 2009)
This is one of my favorite pieces here, so why did I never comment it? Well, better late than never.
Everything about this is absolutely stunning; the lighting, the reflections, and even the textures are done perfectly. It seems like if I could touch it, the keys would be cold and smooth and the petals would be soft, just like they should be. Even the tiny dust specks are a subtle but lovely detail. You really went all out for this, and it shows.
montezmaria (May 21, 2009)
This is very pretty and beautiful, wow. I love how the lighting plays off of th eflower petals.
golden_ataris (May 26, 2009)
I had to double check at first that I wasn't incorrectly on some other page with an amazing photo in front of me...!

Everything about this work is so lovely. I feel like I could reach out and press on a key.
Aubrey (Jul 8, 2009)
Gorgeous!! Who wouldn't wanna play that piano? It looks so touchable, and can almost smell the flower petals on the keys. Awesome!
vlad.the.hamster (Jan 4, 2010)
I want to comment on this again! Sooo amazing.
Flubbles (Jan 6, 2010)
I dont think it's the best thing ever drawn, but the light is lovely.I keep trying to find a piano key draw reference myself but i cant find one i like.
dorothyblueeyes (Jan 7, 2010)
Yes,Dutch masters,here you come.Gorgeous,so fresh.
shell (Mar 7, 2010)
Still loving it.
Catapumblamblam (May 14, 2010)
Thanks for your comments people, I'm really honored for you love! Mayby all'make another one one day, when I'll find back inspirations, free head and time to do it. :)
terracotta (May 18, 2010)
Of all those stipulations, free head is probably the most difficult to find. What a lovely, lovely image and beautifully executed.
Andee (Aug 7, 2010)
holy god thats good.
dorothyblueeyes (Aug 8, 2010)
This is one of my favorites on the whole site;very good delicate touch,and color,and contrasts.Wonderful,it's beautiful.
Miss_DJ (Sep 16, 2010)
This is absolutely one of the best draws on this site.
Alter.Native (Dec 4, 2010)
love this..
Black_Bird (Aug 8, 2011)
I have probably stared at this for a good few minutes now, completely awestruck. A real pleasure to view.
Felistorm (Aug 8, 2011)
You even captured the dust particles...DUST PARTICLES!!! How much more detailed can you get??? This is absolutely awesome!!!!!! Very beautiful!
dorothyblueeyes (Aug 16, 2011)
(you put in the dust particles? can you get rid of mine,in my house?) Absolutely fabulously beautiful. :)
Black_Bird (Mar 14, 2012)
dorothyblueeyes (Mar 18, 2012)
fantastic. i'm sure you could work from setups, too, the real objects.-- if you don't already. (why are there all these great artists here, after most my drawing career is almost over? i have done scratchboards similar to this, & you have to use photo reference cause scratchboard is so detailed. it's an old medium, but you would be good at it, yer work is so perfect. i love this.
Catapumblamblam (edited Mar 20, 2012)
Yes, it's coming from a photo, I wrote it somewhere in previous messages.
Human brain can't elaborate all minimal light/ghadows variation of the reality, we can't always recognize where we should use white in shadow or grey in light. Human brain it's able to understand what is Blue (just for example), also if red enlighted, but if this light it's strong, you can simulate it in a draw, if it's light, mixed ti shadow variations and other ambient color minilam reflections, you can't!
In a Photo there is not he same color in two different zones, also if there is the same material/object/paint and light!
To do that work, we need a reference pic. At least up to today I can't really think some one do it without a Photo reference.
And again, thenks to all!
Catapumblamblam (Mar 26, 2012)
@ philominalove I can't believe! a scammer also in this site! -.-" please go to do that otherwhere.
davincipoppalag (Aug 16, 2019)
