New Challenger: Julian by Oriana132 New Challenger: Julian by Oriana132
Yeah, I didn't have much time but at the last minute I decided I just HAD to enter this contest.
------------

Julian was a foreign exchange student who dated Ramona briefly in middle school before being whisked back to Europe to attend a very prestigious music academy.

Something of a child prodigy, Julian has been playing viola (which, he will be quick to remind you, is not the same as violin) since he was 6 months old. He is now a famous soloist, playing for symphonies all over the world.

While passing through Canada on tour he heard that Ramona was dating a bassist and thought he could reclaim his childhood flame via an epic orchestra battle...however when he found out that Scott plays electric bass he was totally crushed that Ramona would date someone of such low class, and vowed to win her back and take Scott Pilgrim out of the picture.

Julian's mad viola skillz are so amazing that his music has a sort of hypnotic, mind-control effect. He can lure you in, enchanting you with a sweet melody, or cause mind-splitting pain with a barge of feverish, high-pitched, off-key squeals. There are rumors that this power was won by out-viola-ing the devil in an orchestra battle, but that is, of course, ridiculous. All the same...watch out Scott!

It's the only song I truly know of that band, just because it is that epic.

I hated it when people kept calling my viola a violin...mainly because all the violinists in our orchestra where stuck-up idiots. -_-
But this is a very interesting design.

Holy crap he does! But with much better fashion sense. Then again, it's not very hard to beat the 80s vomit that guy is sporting.

I LOVE YOU. No, seriously. XD Violas (and their players!) rock, and the viola gets NO attention! XD Plus, I love your entry. XD

And yes, I do play viola myself. Violas are very rich-sounding. ^ ^

I like this character already. =D The design, his story, his name and his instrument (viola was a new thing for me *lol*) are very interesting. But I just can't stop thinking of The Fiddler and The Music Meister from DC Comics that are similar in... well, some things, more or less. XD
Still, great work! :clap: I saw you got to the semi-finals! Good luck! :w00t:

You're welcome! :) Neil Patrick Harris is great! I also know him from "How I Met Your Mother", where he had a musical number once and I recognized Music Meister's singing voice. XD

Ahahahahahhah!! Oh my gosh this is great! He's so spectacularly formal except for those shoes - very nice touch design wise! =D

I'm glad that you included the extra sketches to show character action. That makes it even better. And yes - a Viola is very different from the Violin. o.O It's in neutral key and that's just insanity!
