This part of the Elemental Horses book: The Elemental Horses by Diana-Huang Available for purchase here --> www.lulu.com/shop/diana-huang/…
---------------------------------------

I wanted to make a horse that was about music... but I showed the sketches to my students yesterday... one of the girls went "What about the violin? I play the violin!" I thought about integrating elements of other instruments into one animal... but I still wanted one with stripes... I tossed ideas around and the kids were supportive of the idea of a whole other set of horses... each one a different instrument... which is nuts... because I'll have to design a whole other set called "Band of Horses" Yikes!!! I'm tossing this guy with the "Elemental Horses" herd for now. I need to take a break! Do other things!

I love the tail, what a clever idea! I love his expression, and the little music note nostrils. You really nailed every single detail and it looks beautiful.

I love music very much too! ^_^ Nothing like great music! The piano is a great instrument to learn. Its simple to use and yet very complex with what can be done! I stopped taking lessons at the end of 5th grade. Been loosely practicing here and there on my own. Nothing serious... just for fun. Its challenging learning the harder stuff... lots of concentration.

I never had lessons..i just play for fun, too :D
When i hear a song i like to play myself i just try to hear the notes or search for show-tutorials on youtube ('cause i can't play with sheets:D) x3

Very cool! I do a little bit of both... sometimes I just play around with sounds other times I try to make myself learn to play stuff from books... easy stuff for now.
