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”.
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.
