The Violinist of Hameln by pupukachoo The Violinist of Hameln by pupukachoo
Boo, there isn't an actual category for book dust jackets

:bulletred:here's the "book" version: [link]

:bulletred: An actual VoH cover : [link]

--------

edit- changed a few things that were bugging me

This was the most fun homework assignment ever... we were told to illustrate a cover/dust jacket for our favorite book or series (and anything goes) so I could absolutely not resist using my favorite comic book for the assignment.

I really should have used illustrator for this but i only have it on the PC so faking that "Vector" look in photoshop kind of made me hate the decision to go with a graphic flat style.

Anyway, enough rambling, Oboe is putting on a disco LIGHT SHOW!

RADIANT CROW!

Aah the comic gets very dark and very epic later on. It starts very very light hearted. I like both sides of it (the comedy and the drama both) but I tend to draw more of the drama. The image I drew is honestly more visually and tonally in line with the anime (which is ironic since I dislike the anime so much ^^; )but the anime is super super super dark and very serious.

the flautist of hameln? you mean pied piper? that's the legend this story was based off of.

I began to read it after you recommended it. :3

But I can't remember him playing the violin on the wrong shoulder. Does he? D:

:iconpupukachoo:
pupukachoo Featured By Owner Feb 20, 2012  Professional Filmographer
He does actually, he's left handed and plays on that shoulder. apparently left handed violins are rare but they do exist... of course he also plays a comically giant one lol - but yah, he does play on that shoulder.

Okay. I figured it was part of the manga, but I couldn't remember and well, violin major at one time, so I thought I'd ask. :3

I really like this, though. It's so different than your normal work, but I really like it. It's got this like, modern-cut edge feel to it. XD

Clarinet~! Got to play it for a bit before I hated it like every other clarinetist I've met, lol. <3 And flute; but I had to learn them for a class. xD

I do hope you make more art in this style. Glad you got to try something new! It really works! :3

Pick it up! Don't lose it! XD I'd play my violin but they don't allow you to play in the dorms and the music school attached to my school is private, so that'd be weird if I took a practice room away. o.o

I don't think we're technically allowed to play int eh dorms here but everyone does XD and whent hey don't they just play in the main gallery at school lol it's funny because last year when I was trying to record my dialog for my film my voice actor and I got unintentionally kicked out by a tuba and a cello

This anime/manga gives me fond memories of when I first saw it in highschool. The artistry of the dustcover is cleverly done, putting in aspects of the demons and music together. It is AWESOME.

Read the manga first. It's way funny and has more depth to the characters. I got done reading it in 8days but I could barely make it past the 5th ep. Someday I'll finish it...C: ...probably

And Oboe wins the world, as always! This looks really awesome, and I can honestly say that I'd use on just about any kind of book if I ever got my hands on one! VoH is an awesome manga (although we do not speak of the anime - not for our sanity's sake, in any case), one of my favorites, really. You know, you were the artist that got me interested in it in the first place? Your fanart has always been the best that I've ever come across, and it inspired me to go looking. I'm glad I did.
