This is the first in my series of great composers.
Chopin lived from 1810 to 1849. He was born in Poland, and died in Paris. He was sickly for most of his life and died of tuberculosis. The epitome of the romantic musician. Much of the music played by highly creative sims when they practice the piano in the game, is by Chopin, and I thought it would be nice to have him play his own music. (To get the expressive pianistic movements shown in the pictures, you need to maximise his creativity).
I used various images to get an indication of what Chopin looked like - this was difficult, because he clearly deteriorated from a bright-eyed, intense, pretty boy to a gaunt, haunted figure, as you can see from his death mask. He died young, but looked a lot older, yet strangely attractive in a poetic way. In the end it is my own interpretation, but influenced greatly by the Delacroix portrait and the pencil sketch of his profile.
