VOCALOID3 Oliver Art & Demos Released

VocaTone has released the the official art for PowerFX’s upcoming VOCALOID3 Oliver. The art is accompanied by the two audio demo songs “Circus Monster” and “Scarborough Fair”.

The art is by Lawlietlk and the VSQs were put together by Anders Sodergren himself. You can find the second demo “Circus Monster” at VocatoneOfficial or embedded after the break.

Below are some notes from Lawlietlk’s deviantArt post

The main inspirations for his outfit were the uniforms worn by the Vienna Boys Choir, and the kinds of clothes upper-class boys and men would wear in the late 18th-early 19th century. When I was first put up to the task of designing for Oliver, I was told he was a “classical” type VOCALOID, so naturally I went for a classical design.

The bandages are there for the sake of keeping the whole “monster” theme that PowerFX is known for. Stitches didn’t look quite right, so I went for bandages instead.

Only surprisingly late in development did we realize that our Oliver bore similarities to Oliver Twist. So that was just pure coincidence. 8P

James was referenced from other pictures of goldfinches. There was no reference used for Oliver.

For those interested I have written an opinion piece concerning Oliver on VocaRant.
