Flute by KerstinSchroeder Flute by KerstinSchroeder
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.

I thought it was a photograph or something! That's one beautifully accurate drawing you did there! :D

Maybe you could do a euphonium too? That's my instrument ^^

Hm, a french horn would be interesting to draw, too! I'm trying to do drawings of all orchestra instruments one day :-)But one by one. The next is the saxophone, because that's what I play :-)

Oh my gosh! At first I thought this was a photograph of the instrument, but now after looking at it more deeper... I'm just speechless. This is breathtaking work! Not only I'm saying this because I used to be a flute player at my high school, but also the tone values and the craftmanship of the flute are well drawn out.

Amazing work overall! :D

When I first saw it I thought it's just not so good quality photograph. But seeing this drawing up close I have to say thay you have amazing skills. I can't stop looking at your work:)
And the details and shading (and even the notes, bemols and sharps!) are incredible!
Sorry for a bit long comment - but your work is perfect:heart:
