Playing on my Heart Strings by sphinxmuse Playing on my Heart Strings by sphinxmuse
This is another in the idiom illustration series from my Fall 2005 semester. In this case, the idiom being illustrated is "playing on my heart strings" or "tugging at my heart strings." It seemed appropriate to upload this one around Valentine's Day :love:

This piece is also for sale! Please let me know if you're interested!

Size: 10.5" X 4.5"
Media: Prismacolor pencils and ink

This is exquisite. I love the whole concept. Probably my favourite part is how graceful you made the hands look (Doing hands is one of my weaknesses)
And I would be interested in buying but I'm many miles away. The cost of postage alone would kill me.

Good luck

No pastel actually, just colored pencils and marker if I recall correctly.

I like the concept myself, but I'm not really pleased with my execution. Perhaps I'll try my hand at it again someday.

This is very beautiful. I've been wanting to do something with a woman's body and a guitar somehow but I have never decided on the details. Great job!!
