The second pose is when he is playing, once again I wanted the viol to overpower him, although being a genius, it is the viol who produces the music. I wanted the viol to be big however I didnt want to increase even more the size as it would begin to disconnect with the character.
And the silhouettes:
The design of the viol, comes firstly from some collages I have done at the beginning of this project. I wanted it to be slightly irregular and curved, as it would connect with Erich Zann's body shape and become one piece.
Here are some more sketches to support the design of the viol, as well as other studies I have done when creating the final designs.
