Journal Entry: Thu Sep 19, 2013, 5:01 AM


( Edit: Extended the deadline!)

Music Contest!

...fore being a bit more exact.
This time the new contest will be about art which should have been inspired by music.
Simple as that, I will give you some songs. You can pick one (or more than one if you wanter enter more than once), and then you draw the given character(s) for that music in a fitting situation.
A record of how you drew it and mixed it with the music would be appreciated, but is no have-to because I know some may not be able to record.
So here come all the infos and the entrys folder, after that the songs and characters.

:star: What to do to win? :star:
Draw art.
... well okay not thaaat simple^^.
You will have some songs give, you can pick one out of. Under each song are shown the character(s) you can draw for that song. If there is a (+) somewhere, it means both characters have to be on the picture.
What count´s most is what feeling the picture has. That can be romantic, dramatic, sad, raging... 
The skill wont make you win, what makes you win is how it´s done. Of course a fully worked out art has a better chance to win, than just a simple sketch! Also pictures with two characters interacting are more work than only one character, so it´s kind of a plus-point too.
If you have done your art, upload it and send me the link so I can fav it to the contest folder.

:star: Deadline :star:
Deadline is really late so people have enough time to enter to the contest.
The contest ends on 14.02.2014

:star: Info about recording :star:
Like said, there is no duty to make a video, but it would be nice to see one. It has a different feeling if you hear the song and see the picture at the same time.
If you dont have a screen recorder, take this one :…
It´s free to use and has good quality. I use it myself too. 
If you upload a video, then best do it on youtube because I am there too. If you have the video up, upload your finnished art here on dA, write the artworks name and the ending +VID and dont forget to put a link into the descripction so I find it.

:star: Prizes :star:
Of course... the section where you all went for first ^^
There will be three prizes which are this time ALL traditional done! (plus some points)
The prizes will be send.

The winner first gets a full page with their character in size A4 and 500 :points: (example :… )
The second winner will get a A6 sized card of their character and 300 :points: (example :… )
The third winner will get a keyring of their character and 100 :points: (exampl :… )
I will try to finnish them all before christmas so you can maybe gift it to a friend? ^^

:star: Entrys :star:
There is a folder with the entrys, to be in there I must fav you in. So dont forget to give me a link to your entry!


The Songs and Characters

Here you can pick your song now!
The songs are links to youtube, and I hope everyone can open and hear them. If not, look for the name and search it again, I bet you find a video available for your country then!
I ask you to at least listen into the songs till a refrain, maybe you find some new song you didnt knew but like a lot, or you get inspired by it easily.
For not spaming the list with links, I just NAME the characters. At the end of the music list, are all the names with links and infos to the characters!
A + means you have to draw 2 characters together, if its a (+) it means you CAN draw them together, but you could also draw just one of them.

My entry for your conntest. Right on top of the deadline, but I hope I still made it :)
And I hope the speedpaint doesn't get blocked on your country because of the music.

Hey,  I got a little question. I'm about to color the picture for your contest, and I choosed Skye. But You have changed your fursona to NaNo, so, can I still use Skye or do you prefer me to use NaNo instead? I just need to know to record it for the speedpaint ^^;

Sandfeuer Featured By Owner Feb 3, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
