Avancino/Ustvestia has three new students!

He decided to have them record a CD with him as part of their music training, and he chose a classic piece that dates from before Palman history to be the first single and CD name-giver. :mrgreen:

Yousis/Rolf, Huey/Hugh and Kainz/Kain appear alongside him in the CD cover (the booklet has more photographs of the boys and their teacher having fun together). :ill:

I hope you all like it. PS Algo exclusive for the few minutes it takes me to submit this to Blogspot and deviantART.
:yes:

Just now noticed this one. Very nice artwork again. That teacher reminds me of actor Johnny Depp! And the Mother Brain Records is cool! :)

Thanks! And you're right about Johnny Depp. I think we have another casting for the movie, then. :yes:

Something that is very noticeable if you pay attention to Ustvestia/Avancino in this pic, is how his eyes and glasses are totally wrong (compared to the rest of the face). Sadly, I noticed it very late.

Also, making Rolf/Yousis thin-waisted (I see him as a broad-shouldered, big-chested, thin-waisted young man) makes his head look big. :(

His hairstyle does not help, either... I think this would have been avoided if more of his body was shown, so we could see how tall he is.

Now, of these boys, who do you think will be the teacher's favorite?

I always vote for Kain. Just as long as he keeps his mouth shut. :wink:

This is a really fun piece of artwork! I especially like the expression on Ustvestia's face. How naughty....

I know what you mean, but I think part of this class will require that he does not keep his mouth shut. :ill:

I think my choice is obvious, since my favorite from this pic already made it to my profile picture. :yes:

And, just for the record, since non-consensual anything is never funny, let's be clear that this is 100% consensual, not that they will have to like it. Let's say the group spent all the money they had on weapons and armor, and then realized they urgently needed music lessons to get the dam keys (heheheheh).

They never stopped to think that Shilka may have had the money. Or that she may already have been musically trained.
:yes:

Edit: And, in case these stories interest you, here is the tale of how I thought of this pic (and no, it was not just an excuse to have another shirtless Huey pic).

I was listening to Top Gun's soundtrack last week. That's it. That was all that was needed to inspire this.

Specifically, this pic was inspired by Kenny Loggins's "Playing with the boys". :grouphug:

Here are the lyrics, which I think complement the art. If you can actually listen to the song (or watch Top Gun), it is much better.


Playing with the boys.

I'd say it was the right time
to walk away.
When dreaming takes you nowhere,
it's time to play.
Bodies working overtime,
your money don't matter,
the clock keeps ticking
when someone's on your mind.

I'm moving in slow motion,
feels so good;
it's a strange anticipation,
knock, knock, knocking on wood.
Bodies working overtime,
it's man against man
and all that matters
is, baby, who's ahead in the game.
Funny, but it's always the same.

Playing, playing with the boys!
Staying, playing with the boys!
After chasing sunsets
one of life's simple joys
is playing with the boys.

Said it was the wrong thing
for me to do.
I said it's just a boy's game,
but girls play too.
My heart is working overtime,
in this kind of game
people get hurt...
I'm thinking that the people is me.
If you want to find me, I'll be...

Playing, playing with the boys!
Staying, playing with the boys!
After chasing sunsets
one of life's simple joys
is playing with the boys.

I don't want to be the moth around your fire.
I don't want to be obsessed by my desire.
You're shining, you're smiling,
I've seen enough.
I'm staying here,
you play too rough.

I hope you like the song, as well. :mrgreen:

I saw this on your blog the other day while cruising the Internet for Phantasy Star stuff. I got the biggest kick out of it! I was hugely impressed someone not only made new PSII fan art, but added the inside joke about Ustvestia, too. Great job!

Glad you liked it, Tanith. And it is great whenever someone likes the included jokes in any of my pics.

When I listened to that song recently, I got the image in my mind. Most of the lyrics fit or can be made to fit him. He may not "chase sunsets" in the way USAF pilots would, but it could be a metaphor for his art.

And since at least one of the boys (or anyone from the party) has to learn how to play, or all the cities will be flooded, I thought the guys would be desperate enough to take lessons from him. :yes:

And yes, Ustvestia's conservatory has a strict dress code. :up: I can't say I complain about that uniform.
:clap:

Edit: And if you look closely at Yousis's/Rolf's face, you will notice he is ready to join the rappy army! :knockout:

The Rappy Army will take him! Although they will still be peevish about it. :p
