Christmas giftart for this very fun artist and friend -> :iconaltalamatox:

Their fancy character, Thomas Destastiel! Because I forever have a thing for cyborgs. Especially those with long white hair. And top hats. And musical skills.

When I was a kid I used to play the violin but lost interest after a year. My parents insisted on having me play it for about two years longer (probably hoping that a violin makes a kid smart). On Christmas my grandparents would visit and insist on having me play something for them. It was a miracle their hearing device didn't explode during my performance. Oh it sounded so bad.

XD, I know sounds really bad, but I couldn't think of a better word outside of what I learned in Ochestra XD.

I don't know why, but this picture reminds me of the violin solo in Danse Macabre. Also cool! A fellow violinist (sorta). If it's any consolation, I didn't sound good until college and I've played since I was five, so I think unless you have the right teacher, we are all garbage.

Your friends character design is gorgeous and you have bought him to life fantastically! It the kind of art I aspire to draw. I need to stop looking through your gallery now because there is too much to fave, and I'd have to leave about twenty comments if I kept on.

I appreciate feedback but you don't have to write many comments if you don't feel like it. You can just fav-and-run if you like. :D

I am not a good enough art critique to say much here but this just drew me in.  This is bad/gothic/Jacob Marley with a violin.  It has excellent details, great coloring and is overall just plain damn amusing.

It's not really Jacob Marley, it's a cyborg character from a friend of mine. But thanks for the nice feedback!

Tra la la, so far behind!

Aaah, your attention to details is one of my favorite things about your art! In his robotics, and hair, and whatever the hell that thing is he wears in his hatband. Your tutorial on this was super interesting, I've always wondered how you did your lines, and I wouldn't have guessed you went in and varied the thicknesses by hand! Whew! Well, it pays off, your inking is always silky smooth digital at its best, without any of the flat deadness that can come with digital lines. (I also got a kick out of your German Photoshop screenshots and BLA BLA BLA.)  

I don't know if it just happened this way or you planned it, but I really like how his bangs are all kind of circling his robotic eye, it just keeps pulling my attention back to his eye and it's really nice! Love the composition of this in general, and the simple snow in the background.

Aw, what a nice expression, too. :3 What a turn-around from Mister Morgan, eh? As much as I enjoy Morgan's madness, Tom's serenity and kindness are a nice thing as well, and you got that just right here!

God, I hope he's playing Jingle Bells. That would make me smile. Ok, it's offical: it's Jingle Bells. Unless it's Rudolf the Red-Nosed Reindeer. That would be acceptable as well. Unless it's Frosty the Snowman, do you know Frosty the Snowman, Tom? Do you... why are you making that face? Wait, no, come back!

Pft. Fine. Should have made him play the tuba. There's dignity for ya.

Thaaaaaank yoooou, Gloomy! :glomp: I love your takes on Tom and you are pretty much keeping him alive at this point while I neglect him!

AHH HUGE AMAZING FEEDBACK. These are always worth it! : D <3 I'm glad you enjoyed my tutorial too.

Haha yes, I love Morgan and Tom equally because they may be the opposite of each other but still perfectly charming in their ways.

Also, Tom with a tuba, I would love to survive see that!

YOUUU'RE WELCOME!! :hug: I have fun drawing your characters!
