My first K-ON! fanart 8D It's a new series that just began airing a month or so ago and I watched it out of curiosity for all its hype in Japan. I'm a sucker for anything related to music :heart: Mio (far left) is my favorite, can't you tell? *hogs spotlight*

I'm not sure what I was on when I thought that drawing broken chunks of glass and miniature music scores would be fun, because it really wasn't. Not to mention I haven't the faintest idea how to color glass, so I pretty much BS'd my way through. Artistic liberties, I say! OTL;;

Speaking of the sheet music, I actually stuck a few lines of Hatsune Miku's "Letter Song" in there. Technically you could play it...if you can decipher it. Each drawn sheet of music is approximately half the length of my thumb. Have fun 8D

My printing day for AX is coming up fast so I have to move straight on to the next drawing. Expect to see me again soon :B

Left to right: Mio, Tsumugi, Ritsu, Yui.

K-ON! Is AWESOMe, and so are you for drawing this!

Anyways, The style of art is not entirely like K-ON!, but you still managed to pull it off!

The way you color still amazes me, using the traditional markers. Not even i can do something like this with my markers. You on the other hand, know how to put them to full use :dance:

It's extremely hard to pull of a background like this with markers, so my recognition goes out to you for pulling it off.
The colors used in this is great! I truly love pieces that are "Minty-blue". Cool colors to be exact :)

Love how you got the theme of "music" too. Those music sheets, the headphones, heck, even that glass of blue roses to the left gives me the sense of music (really like how you made that glass of blue roses by the way) ;P

But yea, overall, a 10 out of 5

Great works :iconthumbsupplz::iconlon3lyaznikka:
What do you think?
The Artist thought this was FAIR
75 out of 89 deviants thought this was fair.

I love the horizontal flow of this, It just pulls my eyes across the page.

It's wonderful how you used color in this piece, Each character has different colors, not only in hair but in clothing as well. There are similarities but differences. I love how each girl is also wearing a different expression, it adds a lot to the picture!

The butterflies, especially the music note ones, are a wonderful detail! And I think you did wonderfully on the music sheets and on the glass. It looks like glass to me. ^3^

The background is beautiful as always, you are just wonderful with the media!

One thing I would have done differently, Is on Mio and the black haired girl, Their leggings blended into the background. At first I didn't see them at all.

OMG it's a fanart of K-ON~! i love it! Mio is so cute! I love the background too and the butterflys! Where's Azusa? I know she's not in the song where they sing the "don't say you r lazy" stuff but it'd be nice if she was in there as well! Then you could make up an out fit for her!

Thank you for putting Tsumugi's hair down. I never liked in "Don't Say Lazy" with Tsumugi's hair put in a bun.

This is an amazing piece, and I really like it because I am a fan of K-ON!
