After many requests from others I finally got permission from the person who made the original photograph. Thanks ~no-need-for-a-name!! :hug:


I am finally able to post this commission.
A drawing I made for my oldest brother:

.: :star: :iconrominic: :star: :.

Last year he graduated at uni and yesterday was his 26th birthday. As a gift I drew a guitar. The same as he has, only this one is right handed and he's a lefty. (;
A very gifted musician he is ever since age of 10.

I never really told him but... I'm so proud of him.
Glad to have an awesome bro like you. :heart:

This beauty is called an Les Paul guitar and is based upon a great picture which can be found here ---> Guitar by ~no-need-for-a-name.


...Honestly, this drawing is more personal than you might think in the first place. No-one actually knows that my heart truly lies at music. Drawing has always been the second...

Before I went ambitious in what I do these days, I aspired to become something totally different: an all-round musician. :nod:

From age 6 'till 16 I studied the arts of music, from classical guitar to drums. In no time I picked up an instrument and played along with every song I heard.
But as my health became weak and the energy to play music slipped away, I had no other option but to let go of my dream to become a great musician in 2004 -no matter how hard it was for me- and started to focus on something else: visual arts.

Also known as: drawing.

Luckily I found the energy to play music again. Since a few weeks I'm playing the bassguitar and things are going as good (or even better) as they were before. I'm glad!


:star: About the drawing :star:

The bodystructure of this guitar has been the most difficult thing I've ever drawn so far. I wasn't used in drawing materials like that. It was a great practice.
Something I don't wish to do again lol.

Stuff I used:
  • 4H, 2H, H, HB, B and 2B o.5mm mechanical pencils for basically everything

  • several tissues for blending

  • kneaded and pencil erasers

  • reference image

  • Hahnemühle sketchbook paper, the best I've used so far!

  • Time spent: At least 30 hours
