So you can see the little details, FULL VIEW HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. :D

When I saw this beautiful girl I thought to myself, the solemn look on her face, the fluidity of her spirit mingling with her flute, it was so beautiful. I knew I had to make her into a wallpaper.
Its been sitting in my image pile for a while, but I think the wait was well worth it. I spent a lot of time blending the colors the way I wanted them. I also wanted to mesh musical notes and loveletter writings together. I imagined her playing the flute as she thought of her lover.

I guess I just wanted to visualize the magic that a musician feels when playing their instrument. I know I feel like Im somewhere else when I pick up my violin.

I think it turned out how I wanted it to almost exactly. Now that IS rare. I really hope all of you enjoy it.

Thank you DeviousOni for the scan: http://gallery.minitokyo.net/view/10248/

    What a radiant image. You sure extracted the girl from the scan nicely. :D

    :) Very nice. There's nothing much for me to say, because you've already said what's in my mine. This picture reminds me of Beren and Luthien from the Silmarillion by Tolkien. Though Luthien sings rather than play a muscial instrument, it kind of captures the mood - tragic beauty. T_T
