Grand Piano by Amanduur Grand Piano by Amanduur
Another background for my portfolio. The curtains and the windows need more work, ugh Dx
Anyway, constructive criticism is always appreciated~
The score on the piano is Chopin's 'Fantasie Impromptu', it's a really nice piece ; A ;

Here's a version of some azn guy playing it xD

This piano is so... pretty. I love the way you draw this and the coloring looks really elegant.
I just think that the angle or position of the piano looks a bit strange though in line with the windows.. I am not sure how to explain it but maybe it's just me. I'm not good with perspectives so I cannot give much opinion. about the curtains... I think they look nice. Maybe try adding a bit of heavier shading or try mixing a heavier shade on the shadows (including the wall behind?)? :O Especially in the middle parts of each curtain which are far from the light source? OTL //foreverbadwithwords// D: I'm so sorry that I can't seem to make myself clear but... aside from that... this is really a wonderful drawing... <3 I like it a lot!

The only criticism I can really offer is that the perspective of the piano looks a little odd; but, that could also just be the angle you've chosen. Those things have always looked like they have no right to be upright if you see them from the wrong angle. Totally jealous of how amazing this looks, it is brilliant. The simplicity of the curtains and windows may be something you're not happy with; but, they do also help draw attention to the foreground, making the piano more important.

Wah, thank you so much! I feel a bit more confident about everything now, I'm really happy. Thank you! ;w;
Ah, I kind of agree with you on the perspective thing xD I felt the same as I drew it, but when I looked at my own grand piano for reference it was like this, so it should be right p-probably....?
Again, thank you very much for the critique~

The more I think about it, the more I realise how awkward your average grand piano looks.
