Music Notes

Music Notes

I drew this for a friend of mine, we both really enjoy music so I thought I should find something I could draw for him :)

It is my first Charcoal drawing, lol and it was difficult trying to capture the light reflections.

...let me know what you think of it :) it always helps to get advice from someone who looks at it differently.

Please note that this design is not my own. I don't remember where I found it but, clip art forms of these music notes are floating all over the internet.
This drawing is my own but the 'idea' is not. I have no intentions of infringing upon any copyright laws.

Note from Kerry:
Hi Anna, the first thing I noticed was the light reflections so that tells me you did a good job! I really like this, you did well to keep the drawing clean since it was done with charcoal.

The Dream
by: KDH3
I really love this drawing, it really makes me feel about the music, inspires me to be informed, I love it and want to be an artist just like you! I will persuade my dream to be added on such a creation being an artist is my dream.

I really like this drawing. I have used charcoal many times and can appreciate just how tricky it is to keep the white areas white! This really does look three dimensional and the notes look as though they would squeak if you rubbed them. It's quirky! Great!

Delayed response.
by: Anna

Poster Girl,
Hello! I am very sorry for my delayed response, I haven't been keeping up with AAD. You are more then welcome to use my drawing if you're still interested. I will mention however, that this design is not my own. I don't remember where I found it but, clip art forms of these music notes are floating all over the internet.
I am very flattered by your request, and although this drawing is my own, the 'idea' is not. And I have no intentions of infringing upon any copy right laws.

This is the exact same tattoo Yadir Molina that plays for the St Louis Cardinals has on his neck, is that the friend you drew it for? Awesome job! I love it and I love it on his neck.....

absent artist

Hi Poster Girl,
That drawing was sent in to this site by a lovely young lady named Anna Brady. She may respond if you post the question on Anna's introduction page.

I don't know where she is now, I haven't heard from her in a while. Anna is the only one who can give permission so I hope you succeed in contacting her. Good luck!

Can I use it?
by: Poster Girl

Our non-profit organization puts on a benefit concert every year that helps children in our area. I'd like to use your drawing as part of the flyer for this year's event. Is that okay?

Great Drawing

I'm sure you already know this, but the curl in the treble clef is supposed to be on line note, G. But I guess that's hard to draw if the staves
( Staves: The plural form of staff) are wavy. It looks like you worked hard on the shading and highlights, because they're perfect. I'm sure your friend will love this gift.
