Hey there, :iconshilin:, it's TheSkull31, and I've got to say that you've got a real masterpiece here. This is not just intriguing, but it's very mind-blowing as well, and I mean that in the best way possible. By the way, quick question: was this a self-portrait of you, or was this a portrait of someone else? And, if you don't mind me saying this, spectacular job! :D

thank you! This is a drawing of a character from my story, :D

So that's your character conducting? That's pretty interesting. My original character Frieda Johnson-Graylock, supposedly one of the last Native Americans left in existence, is a world-renown metal musician, composer and conductor. Starting in book two of my book series, The Bronwyn Chronicles Saga, Frieda's great-niece, Manfred (also known as Manfredina) decides that she wants to be a composer and conductor as well, so she applies to be a student of music at Frieda's school of the arts, the Graylock-Renswick Institute of Music, to follow in her footsteps.

Excellent work here.

Visually striking. It's simple and yet gives such a strong image. The design of the character is outstanding as far as I know, especially the hair. Very well done.

There's something I need to say, but I don't know what words to use. So I'll just say it's five star quality and leave it at that.
