The Nine Muses Picture

I've been wanting to submit this for a while, and right now is a good time as any because I'm still mourning Specks and drawing is on hold.

Polyhymnia is of sacred song and she typically wears a veil.
Calliope is of epic poetry and she's holding a tablet.
Euterpe is of lyric, and she plays the (double) flute (I've never drawn instruments before, so a flute was easier).
Clio is of history and she is carrying a (super long) scroll.
Erato of love poetry has a rose in her hair and a lyre.
Terpsichore is the dance muse and she also has a lyre.
