I never get tired of seeing string instruments in art, which is absurd because there are a lot of them. There's something absolutely glorious about their shape - not to mention the symbolism of music behind them makes it all the more entransing to draw and view!

I love your piece because it's a little different from what I usually see... off the top of my head, I can't think of another drawing or photograph that looks only at someone's torso and below, with the hand, the bow, and the instrument at their side as the main focus. It's really nicely composed and caught my eye as soon as I saw it.

You have some beautiful shading in the piece, especially on the tail piece, chin rest, bow, and the violinist's arm. I am also very impressed with how well you did the strings - I always have problems getting them to stand out and look straight. Yours are perhaps maybe the slightest bit crooked on the bridge, but it's still really impressive. The folds in the clothing are a bit simple, but I feel like that is stylistic and works well. I would suggest working a little bit more on shading the body of the violin itself, though, perhaps.

Shape is also very beautiful. Your violinist's arm and hand especially are wonderfully delicate and expressive. I would say you chose to draw the violin from a hard angle, which contorts the shape the viewer sees, and I don't know that that hard angle is 100% convincingly portrayed. That's why I think you could be a little bit more generous on the lights and darks of the instrument's wood to allow the three-dimensionality to speak out and make more shape of the violin. Otherwise, the F-holes looks a little off and the bottom half of the instrument looks a little chunky.

I want to say I love this piece, it is absolutely beautiful, and I hope you keep drawing instruments!!! Music forever.
