Done with Pilot fine tip ballpoint. Pilot ballpoints seem to be the most light fast of ballpoints I have used.

Color added in Adobe PSP. Done on an overlay layer with Wacom drawing tablet.

I increased the viewing size...I felt it was too small to really see some of the detail.

The attention to detail on this is utterly compelling, and the compostion works rather well considering how much is going on in the picture. The choice to colour the roses red is an interesting one indeed, as they are not, for me, a focal point of the picture (I was instantly drawn to Death himself) and so to me the picture may have been fine without it!
But I digress, it is a lovely work of art and a classic style, conjuring thoughts of those old books of myths and legends with the 'old-world' illustrations.
Splendid, well done, a truly beautiful piece of work.
What do you think?

Fantastic! I adore it! There's so much going on in the picture, although my attention is drawn quickly to Death and it's violin. Great work.

What's really amazing, is that he (the character) chose the violin! At least he won't get blisters!

And by the way, this art piece is fabulous!

Thanks for relating what you picked up for it as far as emotions. I think that when a piece really works it should illicit something from the viewer. Sadly it doesn't always work that way with my work but when it does...I am very happy with the results.
