After a lot of feedback from the google form I think it's time now to introduce these characters. They're basically personifications of instruments, starting with this guy. At first I thought it was gonna be (a little too) obvious that he was suppose to be a piano - with the piano keys everywhere haha - but there were a lot of people who thought he was a cello or violin. Mainly because of the blouse, which is suppose to be the strings going to the pedals (which is what the "corset" is referencing). So that will most likely be changed. But a lot of people also guessed the piano, so that's good !

ABOUT THE PROJECT
All I want to say now is that I'm planning to make this into a game (which is already in the making). It's something I'm doing in my free time and alone - so don't expect it to appear soon haha. There are more characters, but for now these guys are the ones I'm going to focus on. Like said before, they're personifications of instruments but also perform together. More coming soon ~

ABOUT THE CHARACTER
FRANKIE ♪ is suppose to be the mom friend of the group, who is most likely to break any of them apart when they're fighting. He's the oldest and the tallest and the most mature. However, he has a soft spot for cute things. I wanted him to be good with children, since pianos are often used by music teachers. Piano is an Italian instrument meaning "Soft and strong" which I wanted to come back in the design. Because of this he is also Italian ooh. His name is actually Fransesco but is just called Frankie by his friends. I wanted to put that on the sheet but it didn't work with the layout haha

Ohh this project sounds so cool and i love all the characters already!!
one lil thing to notice though, "Fransesco" isn't an existing italian name, you were thinking of "Francesco" ^^

This man deserves a huge, fluffy dog to sit under the piano while he plays. Living pillow for the smol children.

Oh my god he looks amazing!

He seems to perfectly encapture the elegant aura a piano gives off, as well as it's sometimes sinister nature & it's kind gentle one too


Very well done!! Can't wait to see more of him!
