Project WE Promotional Art 1 by yuumei Project WE Promotional Art 1 by yuumei
Not a sketch this time! :D If I don't get too lazy, the entire project will be drawn in this semi realistic style instead of my usual anime style which is why it will take years and years to finish.

I know people are going to ask, so I'll say it now: no, this guy is not a demon creature or product of science. He is albino like the kind you find in nature.

Here's some facts about albinos: Albinism is the result of two rare recessive alleles that code for no color pigments. This can occur just in the eyes, hair, skin, any combination, or all. Albinism is not either or, there's actually levels of albinism that varies from looking just pale and blond to looking like a ghost. The red color of the eyes is not due to red pigments, but rather the lack of pigments make the iris transparent so you can see into the red retina that lines the inner eyeball. Because of this transparency, the iris can't control the amount of light that goes through so most albinos have very poor vision. Their eyes are also extremely light sensitive and without skin pigment to block sun radiation, the skin burns easily. Basically, extreme albinos may look cool, but it sucks to be one.

Other Project WE sketches: [link]

The answer to the chosen question is:

8. This is not about a dispute or war between two or more families.

The old answers were:

1. It's not about vampires
2. There are no zombies either
3. Not even cannibals
4. I did not base the blue eyed character off of me, my friends, or you
5. Project WE is not about romance
6. It is not set in the future
7. This is not about genetic experiments that give people blue or green eyes and other powers. (Characters with same eye color might be the same person or relatives.)

If you have a question about the secret Project WE, ask and I might just answer. But they must be questions like "is this about demons?" or "will there be magic?", and not questions like "what is this about?" or "What is the name of the character." Basically, they must be yes or no questions. I will only answer one question for every new post, and the answer will be a "no" like "no, there is no demons, etc" If I didn't choose to answer your question, that might either mean the answer is a yes, or your question didn't get picked :D hahaha, I'm keeping things ambiguous. So ask away and the one new answer will be revealed in the next post. :D

is he/she an albino?
pUrpLeICEcrYstaLs Featured By Owner Feb 28, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
Is the albino supposed to be a shut-in who has nothing better to do than play music and dream? I realized in some other pictures the guy on the piano is supposed to be him, right? So every time there is more light... I dunno. Sorry for bugging you.

OOH! Everyone, stare at the albino! Shield him from the light or he'll burn his retinas!

Oh MYYY! THIS IS SOOOO AMAZING! i want to draw like youuuuuu
NinjaKittyKatSayMeow Featured By Owner Mar 4, 2011
Mmmm, I just joined your devwatch, fantastic work by the way, superb, you were probably born with artistic skill, but you story Knite really got me. Just a couple of days ago I saw a documentary on china, the dictatorship, the poverty, the pollution; that was just all too much, no wonder I see so many chinese people in my island, it's easy to understand the suffering they are going through in their own country. But project WE...mmm...(strokes imaginery bread...) seems like your deadset on keeping this a secret. Since its not about humans beings being any monster from horror or sci-fi movies or with supernatural powers, or about wars or the world's end or experimentation then WHAT?!? Um...could it be about a group of humans, just nomal humans you see every day, but they are quite different, they know of something, I don't know, just something that could depend entirely on man's existence in reality...kinda foreshadowing man's ultimate choice....lame, right...? Since you ruled out alot of possible ideas then I have no other ideas. But fantastic work, eveen if it takes you 2 or 10 or even 20 years I shall wait to find out of what project 'WE' really is!!! TTFN:3!!!

I have partial albinoism so it's just my skin that's wicked pale and I have blonde hair. Also my eyes are really light blue. It's not that bad until it becomes summer and I gotta load up on sunscreen 'cause I burn like a paper in a fire.
CantPickaName735 Featured By Owner Nov 30, 2010  Student General Artist
I love your style:) its just like the pictures I've had in my mind for sooooo long... and yet still cant put down on paper.

Thank you yuumei- your work inspires me to keep trying!
Dontclimbthetrex Featured By Owner Nov 13, 2010
Okay I've been following this project for a while now cuz it looks so cool!!! But anyways I've been trying to guess and I'm really not too sure if I've asked this yet, I pologize if I have, but I'm gonna ask it here anyhow, it's a long shot but I've been curious: Does this have anything to do with either the real life historical eugenics movement, or could it be about a fictional eugenics discrimination? Can't wait to see this anyhow!!! ^__^

I admire you for your job with your works.
KlaraRegina Featured By Owner Jun 13, 2010   Traditional Artist
Is it a horror story?
suikaxusagi8 Featured By Owner May 25, 2010  Student General Artist
Everything is just so curious with lots of questions roaming around.
I want to ask, but my brain is not working.
Can I ask another time? :)

The eyes are the one that attracts me but of course the whole picture, his eyes is just so pretty.
I really love his red eyes
But his skin so pretty, ahh I'm speechless.
Its very pretty

lack of pigment in your eyes can also mean u have purple eyes
three-forces Featured By Owner Dec 18, 2009  Hobbyist General Artist
Does this anime focus on the minds; mental abilities, liying, manipulation of others, who gets cought and who doesn't. kind of like deathnote without the deathnote.

like a drama thriller

I love this one! Especially the smile. I want to ask, is this a sad story and if in the end of the story, will there be a happy ending for the characters?
GemiDonnie Featured By Owner Jul 27, 2009
But humans don't have red eyes, even if they are albinos. At least not the one I know :3
