Another commission, in a similar style as the last one. This character is a half-elf bard that I decided to paint in formal clothing, as if she's giving a small concert or something.
The funny thing about this piece was that it was just supposed to be a character-only commission but I decided to throw in a piano, but then the piano made the left side of the image far too heavy so I had to throw in more background elements to even the composition out again. LOL. Well, I think the client (who is super nice and patient and awesome) was happy anyway
P.S. The new version of deviantart is quite lovely IMO, it seems to function the way I want it too and I don't find myself having a hard time finding where things are. huzzah!
