As the name states, the archlute is a perk higher in the lute scale and size. I thought that was a silly joke, or something. In any case, I still have more instruments to showcase to you. It is incredible just how many music instruments are there in the world. There as many as there are different types of humans. Now for a bit of history. The instrument was developed in Europe in the Renaissance around the 1600s. It is a mix between a theorbo and a tenor lute.  This instrument has about 14 strings. They are tuned to play...

I am finally getting to drawing classical instruments. The flute comes in many shapes and sizes. Everyone is familiar with the flute. As far as popularity is concerned, the violin, guitar and piano do better than the flute.

Human is the only known animal that can amuse itself with absolutely nothing. The realm of the mind alone, can provide a fellow with the peace they so desperately seek. In order for one to be truly happy, a person must isolate themselves mentally from the problems of the world. Yes, everything is on fire, and there is nothing you can...

As of lately, I have been trying to practice a bit with clay. I am trying to get decent enough to make props for the doll show. Among the props, I want the dolls to play bizarre musical instruments. It seemed like a good idea at the time. Anyhow, while I am still in the planning stages, I can at least show you the progress of the music instrument anime drawings. This one is the slide whistle. A lot of kids like to play with this musical instrument. It works a bit like the Trombone. The modern slide whistle was...
