First Picture of 2007! Woot! :D

Soooo. I know that everybody has certain songs, that if they listen to ... You seem to forget everything else, and just. Listen!

Well, I was listenning to the verve "bitter sweet symphony", and its one of those songs that does that to me, and i came up with this. Simple as!
Its not meant to be depressive or anything, more ... uplifting. Breaking free perhaps. You guys can decide for yourselves! :)
Anyway, this was a pretty quick one really.
Sketched out tradtionally, inked and colored in photoshopCS2.

All comments and faves are greatly appreciated! :heart:

This reminds me of Jane from "Speaker of the Dead" by Orson Scott Card. To put it simple, she was an entity living inside the computer network, managing every incoming and outgoing bit of information. I don't know if it was intended to look that way but that's the first thing that popped into my head :aww: It's really, really beautiful! :love:

The detail in the pull and shading on the strings is splendid. Wonderful.
