What do drawing, writing, and playing the piano all have in common?
...besides the fact that you need fingers to do any of those activities, the all have this in common: any one can be an artist/writer/musician, but it takes feeling, depth and inspiration to go from being good to being great. My piano teacher has done a lot of work with me these past two years on teaching me how to play with rubato. (ro-ba-to /ro͞oˈbätō/ rubati, plural; rubatos, plural The temporary disregarding of strict tempo to allow an expressive quickening or slackening, usually without altering the overall pace) It applies to drawing and writing too! It's about more than just doing it right, it's about doing it with emotion. All this is to say, I find it easier to draw and write with emotion when listening to music. I'm not sure what you'd call my favorite music style. Lyricless, maybe? If you're interested in trying out my technique, here's some songs that I really love. :) http://www.mixpod.com/playlist/81302241

I'm not a huge Disney fan, but I must admit that I rather enjoyed their redo on the story of Rapunzel. So I wanted to try some fanart. This was painted with Photoshop Elements (man, I wish I had CS5...) So yeah, enjoy.
