I feel the Violin parts should be lower, some notes should go longer, and decrescendo for the other instruments' parts while the melody goes on.

It's supposed to be a sadish theme. Aren't sad theme's high?
And i'm not a total musician. I don't know where to put decrescendos. But i will take your advice. I had originaly wrote the song to be so where on of the b's in the melody was natural, but it didn't go with the background.

It's good to be high in some parts, but all the time makes it sound rather irritating, and thus I think there should at least be a break in it.

I'm not a professional musician, so I'm not too keen on this subject, but I tried dangit.

I said I would take your advice. I'm thinking of making my own background though.

When I think of sad, I think of Demise of the Ritual from Shadow of the Colossus or Song of Healing from Majora's Mask, which seem to be lower-key songs. Maybe it's just my perception of sadness, but I always couple sadness with despair, which is a very dark theme, and as such, a deeper, lower tone works better. Maybe a lower bass/string background would give the song more depth in the emotions it's trying to convey. I often also hear songs that have low-pitch rhythmic sounds, while a higher-pitch vocal or solo instrument is used for verses.

This is coming strictly from a listener, and not a songwriter, just so you know. :smile:

    I completely love that you guys are using this thread for more than just drawings. :smile:    It can be for anything created.  Or even an idea.   
    I'm afraid my silly, stupid phone won't load your song, so I can offer no advice  :(
I'm so happy I could just tear out your intestines and strangle you with them!

Revival time! Yey.
Okay, so I made a drawing of one of my characters the other day, and I can't help but think there is something... off about it. I want to know what it is that looks weird to you guys. Note that this is an unfinished drawing that I plan to add more to. it only takes up about a third of the page, so it will be hard to correct anything. I mostly want to know so I can avoid the same mistake in the future.

Oh, and I'd also like to know which image looks better to you guys. On the first one, I just used default camera settings on the 3DS, and the second one has the brightness at +75%.

2nd image looks best.      And the arms are too skinny.  Especially for someone wielding a bow. She should have nice bough arms.      Other than that, looks great :smile:
