This is like a new anime drawing of mine featuring the bouzouki. It is a type of guitar. There are a lot of string instruments. This one in particular was invented in Greece. It was first depicted in a relief that dates to the 330 BC. The relief was found in Athens. During the Byzantine period, it was known a the pandoura. There are many different sizes to this instrument. The number of strings also varies. The instrument is still being played today. It is still as popular as ever in Greek Laiko music. Laiko is the Greek equivalent of...

It has been a bit since I posted a new music instrument drawing. I have been focusing a bit on the manga and Doll Theater. I am almost done drawing the linearts and the dialogue of the new volume. Once that gets done, I am going to get started on a new Scary Cat volume. As for the drawing itself, it features a maiden wearing a nice dress while she plays the Berimbau music instrument. It is a single string instrument that was created in Africa. It is now more commonly seen in Brazil. It is typically used when fellows...
