Today, We Are Old by Kayoll Today, We Are Old by Kayoll
Entry for *FAC-AgentC's art jam!

The theme is "talent show". What came into my mind are these two, Joseph and Kenneth; characters I made with musical talent. Joseph is on the vocals, and Kenneth is on the guitar.
I should've mentioned that before, Kenneth is pretty good at playing the guitar (acoustic and electric)... but he's not really good at singing.

I guess this is the finale of Goof's Talent Show! They made it end with a bang (with a lot of mess and chaos)!

Obvious music video reference. You know what song it is! The artwork's title is a giveaway!

I was expecting a Rickroll on that, but nope.
It means you have good taste in music. Oh come on, it's not even that cheesy.

Dude, Nice! I think this turned out really well Your style is becoming quite refined. And the effects really add to it. A lot of people's art doesnt mesh well with different effects added but you seem to have gotten it just right. :)

It wasn't placed on the speakers (well, it happens to look like it came there)... someone just threw that from the stage.

Wow, I can tell you really went all out on this one - the lighting, the atmosphere, the little details such as the dust in the air, it's all spot on. :nod: Love the contrast between your musical duo on stage and Candy and J-Les going nuts at the bottom, and you can just tell how into the performance Joseph and Kenneth are - makes me want to join in and sing along. :XD:
Awesome job on this, man - and yeah, I've seen the video that inspired this. "We Are Young", of course. :thumbsup:

Kayoll Featured By Owner Nov 29, 2012  Hobbyist
Oh, I really should since it'll be my last drawing for the month!

I tried to make it look reminiscent of the music video. The details are hard and took more effort than the shading, but the end result is worth it.

Yeah... Candy taking J-Les's sunglasses to join in the chaos.

"makes me want to join in and sing along."
Oh, that'd be amazing! Bob and Flyer can join in, too... if they were bigger. XD

Yep, it's that one! Thank you! :la:

I know X)but the way it begins is quite weird. BAM! Just smash a girl on the head with bottle. :nuu: Hell will break loose afterwords.

I think the lady with the phone at the beginning signaled her friends to start the fight (Thus, why she texted "NOW"). What I didn't get was why did she threw her phone... You can't just throw your smartphone!


It must be the guy's phone, that's why he hit her head with a bottle. That's what she gets for throwing his smartphone!

If I recall the musical reference, I had actually heard "We Are Young" relatively recently and didn't mind it! I may be getting more tolerant of today's music scene than I used to be. :lol:

Either way, this pic, no matter what the reference may be for the music, is fantastic! :clap: You really dazzled with the lighting and shading combo here. Joseph and Kenneth are really tearing it up with that song (particularly great job on the guitar's detail, just wow!), and the Candy/J-Les foreground sideshow was a funny and surprising addition! :dance: Thanks so much for the entry and the well done on all accounts for this pic, whatta winner! :highfive:

It's inspired from stadium rock and some classic influences, so you definitely wouldn't mind!
Good for you!

Oh my goodness, the shading... I didn't take it as seriously as before (most likely because I've started doing it late at night, I was already sleepy when doing it), but I focused mostly on the effects, like smokey foreground, pinkish-yellow lights, and the dust and bits of food in the air 'til it looks reminiscent to the music video.

Do you know how hard it is to draw that guitar?? I can't even get the shape right for quite some time. XD
No one has even noticed the guitar's name...


Heyy, you noticed them! :D It's also my first time drawing J-Les!

I dunno who caused the riot! Joseph and Kenneth are just doing their thing on stage!

You're very much welcome! :w00t:
And thanks for the compliments!
