[OOC] The Douglass Gardens Sessions
RE: [OOC] The Douglass Gardens Sessions
#26
Just for the record, HTT is not the only musician around.  I found a few things shoppable into album covers:

   
This one is probably opera, just FYI.
   
Probably the first album/single with a simple design. (Also I can't unsee the two adjacent groups of three black keys.)

   

   
Tomoyo insisted on Sakura's name going first.  (Actually the original artist did; I think I matched the font reasonably well without really trying too hard.

   
Tomoyo also sings some old pop standards.

Source of all of these is Danbooru; I have higher resolution versions I'll upload to the wiki.  It would be nice if there were more pictures of Athena, but that's how it goes.

If Nao is producing all of these, we're going to need to split the "Bonus Sessions" into their own list... and increase the release rate. More releases in July and August, and maybe more starting September 2017 when she starts college and can justify the work as equivalent-to-course-load credit toward her degree (assuming Rutgers allows that).

You realize the hubbub this is going to cause in online fan communities, especially when some dedicated wonk does the work to confirm that yes, that sounds just like Character X's seiyuu, except they're singing in unaccented English, which it's known they can't. (I am, of course, assuming the refugees have the voices of -- or voices closely resembling those of -- their original performers.)

You have to know where to look. Nine pages of pictures with Athena in them and one more image on page 10, including more images of just Athena than I expected to see.

Also including this one, which I just pulled into GIMP, cropped, and added titles to. Larger version going onto the wiki...

But of course - the secret needs to leak out somehow, after all.

(I've been assuming "closely resembling".)

One more for the cover collection - this time, for the idol-turning-serious-singer from Comic Party.

Option 1: Classic pose, but no guitar

Option 4: Something else - provide a link to the image...

Right - I should do something with that ... once I come up with a name for her EP.

Same artist as Ui's option 3 above, this time for Mio - which one should I use?
Option A
Option B

Outright grabbing this one might be considered... felonious.

I'm here all week, folks!

(See also the same fan artist's other pastiches .. and his art of Wakaba Girls, from which I'm grabbing this one for their combined album.)

Option B.

Now here's a question... how many of these covers are going to be real photos taken in-universe, and how many are scavenged fan art off the Net? (We already know Yui has papered on entire wall of her room at Douglass with K-On! fan art, after all.)

I have.  There are some good images there for the various EPs.

And someone ought to send Gryphon a link of the pic of Yui playing a Dobro, since she does that very thing in the K-On! stuff from Undocumented Features.

I'm using scavenged fan art because I don't have a residence full of illustrators at my disposal... but Nao does. In-universe, they'd be photos or original art that happens to look like what we're using.

Nodoka's cover would be a sketch. Mugi's, Mio's, and Asahi's would be photos. Azusa's would be a photo collage.

EDIT: Of course, some photos might be inspired by fan art.

Yeesh... for a moment there, I thought I was going to have to go with this image of "are you sure that isn't Fate cosplaying as Sumire?"... until I discovered this one that's definitely Sumire. And she's holding drumsticks.

For Jun, there's an embarrassment of riches. So, asking once again:
Option 1
Option 2
Option 3
Option 4 - which at first I didn't like, but the watercolour effect is growing on me, and it would make the image unique
Option 5 - showing her non-musical defining traits
Option 6 - because somebody should have a sense of humour
Option 7

EDIT: Oh, yes:

One more before I logout for the evening - the one that in universe started it all off.

This one could be scavenged fanart and hand-lettering - it was intended as a one-off, after all.

Definitely a photo - and she does her own special effects. Smile

Minako is attending a performing arts high school, after all... and she already has four insert songs in the anime, so all Nao needs to do is engineer the disc.

According to the wiki, it already has one. (Just down the hall from the home theater.)

Bump.

If I don't hear otherwise, I'm going with Option 2 and Option... C? D?

Now to look for something for Yui's EP while I'm waiting for opinions...

I can see option 2, but I kinda like 1 and 4. And 6 is so much like the cover of Weird Al's "Off The Deep End" album that it needs to be used somewhere.

As for Ritsu, D or E.
