Al coda by Escente Al coda by Escente
Another picture of My OC Kadoru ^^
I really love music scores, because there's something magic about storing melodies on a thin piece of paper.

The scores I've used in this picture is from a violin solo adaptation of Schubert's Erlkönig. It's literally so crazy that some parts of it look like a piano score xD

[Edit: holy mackerel I didn't see this coming :iconbiebercatplz:  I'm absolutely speechless with delight ]

Done on Illuststudio and Painttool SAI
WIP and detail shots can be found on my tumblr!

Daily Deviation

Given 2014-07-24
Suggester said: "The use of the lighting is beautiful. The scattered papers beneath the character give the drawing an interesting atmosphere."

I love music scores too! (although I fail to be able to read one, simple ones yes, but not those crazy compositions) And I've always wanted to learn to play a violin! I can see why this is a Daily Deviation :meow: Somehow this reminds me of my favourite character in a novel I love. He plays the violin and it suits his elegant and gentle character nicely. *Sigh* Overall I just love music and classics (Okay, sorry just rambling).

Congrats on the DD! Might be a late congrats though.

A watch from me!

Wow~ This piece reminds me strongly of my grandfather, who used to travel around the country and world playing violin with classical ensembles. He was excellent at what he did, but he died before I was born. When I was in pre-school I got violin lessons so I would become as good as him, but then family issues got in the way and I was forced to quit after only a short while. This piece makes me think about what potential I had to become like my grandfather, who although I can't say I miss, I do miss the opportunity of getting to know him. His legacy is still in my life and if he we were still alive and I still played violin, I could have learned a lot from him. Very nice work here, I know this probably isn't the message you were hoping to convey, but it touched me very deeply. Please continue to make thoughtful artwork, because that is often the very best kind.

As a(n amateur) violinist, I can relate to this love of music; plus I love pictures like this of people surrounded by their work, or lying down with a few things they love.

Oh WOW! I love that you are using actual musical scores! That's just cool. I like your OC too, he looks thoughtful. Is he just worn out from trying to master that score? And the lighting is exquisite! Well done! Congrats on the DD!

actually the only thing the characters have in common is their names hahas.
I created Kadoru 3 years before knowing that EVA existed and while Kaworu is an angel Kadoru is a serious jackass

I wasn't accusing you of doing anything bad so don't feel obligated to defend yourself.
but if I'm gonna jump on that train anyway than he does really, really look like him here right down to the clothes and name I'm sorry but it's true I don't mean to be a bitch about it even though that's probably what this sounds like

That aside from the artistic qualities of this because it's a neat work and there's nothing wrong with your skill obviously, though have you thought about saving your stuff in png? JPG always tends to screw with the quality.

 I love the details to the music and the lighting. This reminds me when I'm home alone and played my violin for so long that I just lie there and take a quick break to play again. I love the violinViolin player Well I can't play at an extremely advanced professional level, but I am fairly good at it!
