He's got beefy forearms for a piper, eh? Must be piping all day long! I like the feather plumes and that you can see his toes through his shoes :^)

It will be a crime not to comment on this one.
MAN!!! this is astonishing, even briliant

:-) Il Tode replies: "I've been playing in my mind with the idea of drawing a piper or a flute player.

I've even asked friendly musicians to pose or send photos for it, but none... well.. was much of help.

Only recently, a friend of mine, a younger artist, sent me her pics of a piper - and I got inspiration from them.

A fun fact about this pic is I usually draw on the very corner of the page... and I leave them uncompleted, lacking space.
This time I was determined to do a full figure pic, and I pasted another sheet while I was drawing, to get all the space I needed. 1

Tnx you - and all guys - for commenting.
