This is going to be one part of my sister's Christmas present. She plays the flute (and saxophone and oboe) and I wanted to draw one for her. I found a photo of a flute on dA and I liked it so much, I used it as a reference [link]
Materials: mostly 2B pencils for the lighter parts and 6B pencils for the darkest areas, 0.5 mm HB mechanical pencil and a ruler for the notes and the lines
Time: about 20 hours (3-5 hours on several evenings)
And now I'm waiting for Christmas :-D
Edit (Dec 28): My sister loved it and I promised to draw more instruments. I plan on drawing a saxophone, oboe, trumpet, trombone. And currently I'm working on a clarinet drawing.
