I made a nice any drawing. This is based on a pretty bird called the Resplendent Quetzal. They are native to Chiapas, Mexico. There are two subspecies of this pretty bird. The bird is the inspiration of the plumage the god Quetzalcoatl. The bird is near threatened, but there are effort for preserving their habitat. A lot of humans love to do eco-tourism to see the bird going about its life. As for mythology, the bird feathers represent freedom and wealth. The Mayans thought that Freedom and Wealth went hand in hand. I think a lot of today folks would...

I used a photograph as reference. I then changed the humans for anime characters of my own design. I also changed the color of the tuxedo from black to blue.

They are going to be embedded in Artsy Sister as soon as I...

drawing, instrument, music -

This is my newest anime drawing featuring an unusual musical instrument. This one is called the autoharp. The autoharp has the unique ability to play chords. By pressing the buttons on the front, you can mute all, but the strings you want to play. There is plenty of debate as to who invented the autoharp. Two different German inventors patented the autoharp, around the same time 1883. One was called Charles F. Zimmermann. He patented in the US in 1882. The other fellow was Karl August Gutter. He panted his autoharp in 1883, in the UK. The one that most...
