Doesn't look like I'll be able to participate in this, after all... So many things have been happening and now it's the deadline? orz
Good luck to everyone who's entering/entered. =3

Since the deadline is tomorrow, I guess I should ask now.
Art inspired by traditional Chinese music is ok? Don't know the artist but I do know the name of the song.

Getting a positive response on dA at least. Sorry Jae, you should know I only really draw fan art, and it's nothing abstract. And I can't draw people for crap.. :/

OMJ This looks like a pretty interesting contest. There are TONS of songs that just move me even though I haven't got a clue what they're saying. :D (Some are more than obvious than others.)
Um, the only question I have (IDK if anyone has asked this already so sorry if it's a repeat) is how many pieces can we submit?
R A W R~ Hopefully I can do at least one because of the very limited supplies I have. T^T School supplied me but now it's ending. baww. . .
;~; i'm sad i never get to see you driftie...
<///< i'll send you a christmas card XDDDD

Oh good! I must have misunderstood the rules because I thought it meant we did have to know the lyrics. That's fine then!

Haha, yes. College is evil and time consuming, yet I enjoy what I learn. *::*is a paradox*::*
Having a job has to be better than looking for one 24/7, though; which is what I'm doing. So yeah, I don't have a lot of time to join contests or anything which sucks because there are so many cool ones going on right now. D:
Bossman's Wife (Otaku Eternal) | Posted 06/09/10 | Reply
Untill you can't draw anymore is the limit. I dont want to get sued.
yup that's the goal lol that's why i decided to make it non english music so people couldn't understand it. but of course people will always look up lyrics. oh well that's alright.
never got anything... ._.

Question! I have a song I really like but since it's in Japanese I don't actually know what it's about so may I just draw the feeling I get from the song?
Senior Otaku | Posted 06/09/10 | Reply
the moment i read the contest rules, i got excited and my brain just started exploding with ideas and which songs to use, but i have one question...are we only allowed one entry or could there be multiple entries? not sure if this question has been asked, but i don't think i want to look through 80 comments to get an answer XP
so are we? can't wait to start doing this :3

Though if I was gonna enter a contest for the prize, prize money or art supplies or cool gadgets would be my aim. X3 That's what deviantArt is for!

I know! Right now I have 4 classes and work giving me ass loads of crap to worry about. One of the classes end on the 24th of June, but otherwise the other go on til the end of July. ]': I'll see what I can do though!
;~; but you have 2 months...
So persistent on my ass kicking, are we? 8D She doesn't have to try hard to kick it either! My talents really don't exactly lie in drawing or digital art. <o<
I kick college too! I think I may end up having to drop this contest since college at the moment is kicking me in the rear pretty hard with homework and tests and exams. I also kick work because it has the time that college doesn't own me. D: If I do get something drawn, it'll definitely won't be my best. . . .

I'm not asking for anything. I honestly don't care what I get XD I don't enter these contests for the prizes and do enter them because I find them interesting... otherwise I wouldn't consider the contest (offended again XD). Who has time to draw something they don't want to draw? I was only asking just to make sure you hadn't forgotten anything here. I don't care whether you're giving out prizes or not. XD;;;
Otakuite+ | Posted 06/08/10 | Reply
okay i just sent the outline to ya u should get it soon soo yeah XD
firstname.lastname@example.org is my email
yayayayayay i chose the songs hot issue, huh, muzik, bababa, and what a girl wants beacuse those are the ones that symballys me as an individual the most..and its ok i like to read..and in the description when im finished ill make sure to include what each song is and what they mean to me and how they help to symballyze me as the individal being..but really ill send u the main idea i have for it in eail cuz i kinda already made the entire outline i just have to redue it better nd add some words and stuff like that ya know..
I know 4minute really well and i'm impressed you knew that much about them^^; i'm fine with you doing this idea. I just didn't want (for example) for someone to pick big bang, do electric streams of color and put speakers behind them because that represents ALL of their songs and everything they do but since 4minute is still relatively new compared to other groups they dont have many songs and it would be easy to tell why you have certain elements in your design. the clothes I would totally get. and Muzik is one of my faves too, especially the remix, so it all makes sense and i would see that in your design.
I'm really trying to get people to translate what they're hearing into imagery and i understand this challenge if very difficult because it required a lot of synesthesia. But being synesthetic I take that for granted a lot and forget that not everyone can do that. lol
answer is yes, you can do your idea. sorry for rambling haha
LOL YOU'VE BEEN READIN THAT CRAZY CONVERSATION?! omg i'm so getting kicked out of here.. xDDD
i miss it too mew *hugs*
well theres 5 group members to 4minute and i have 5 fav songs from them that each expres a diffrent thing for example 4minute song Muzik is about music.. i love music, its one of the main reasons why im doing this challenge but then they have a song called hot issue that i just love cuz its like about cloths and makeup and i know that when they first came out with that song there tour bus got robbed and there fans stole all there cloths and stuff..and who doesnt like cloths..well maby some people but i love cloths and shoes and makeup..but i picked out 5 specific songs that i like the most because i relate to them the most..but its all the same group..i actually already did an outline of what i was thinking so if u want u can give me your email and i can send the pic to you so u can see it
i miss coding our worlds with special text boxes and stuff ;-;
@Hyper Vampp Boi:
You're going to have to youtube these yourself. I'm trying to take a final right now so i can't go get them for you lol I do not know any korean rock only japanese:
Alice Nine: Rainbows
BACK-ON: New World, One Step
Boom Boom Satellites: Drain
Dir En Grey: (the videos might scare you so careful with these ._.) Cage, Obscure
Gazette: Chizuru, Burial Applicant
Hyde: New Days Dawn
Miyavi: selfish love, Ashita Tenki ni Naare
One Ok Rock: Kanzen Kankaku dreamer, Keep it real

Well u said that if there were other artists u wanted 2 try like 4 rock 2 ask u, lol.. So yeah =]
What do you mean other artists i mentioned? do you have a certain genre you want to draw ?
can i put it around one group but verious songs cuz i want to capture the whoe group and thats through a series of there songs
Absentminded One (Otaku Eternal) | Posted 06/08/10 | Reply
Hey, sounds like fun. I'll see if I can summon up enough time to draw something. D:
I might like 2 try out 4 this =D What r the other artist u mentioned about??
I told him you wanted a burrito...
Adam: " i only care what you want"
I'M NOT TRYING TO GLOAT! ;A;
;~; to make the hearts you press Alt + 3 on the number pad (for a PC computer. Macs cannot make them)
ok i'll go tell adam you want a... berito however you spell it
O-o I'm supposed to be married to Adam sooooo what do you want done? xD
and you have to be over an otakuite now? wtffff oh i'm glad i dont have to deal with that crap, i'd be so pissed off. lol
you guys can't do anything.
i like your idea about customizing worlds but sadly there's not much you can do to them. On Myo (idk if you know about that or not) we used to be able to overwrite all the coding on the website and change the entire page. it was great. there were specific people that did it though. myself, sesshy, omm... others i can't remember their names right now but my point is there's not much you can change on these besides the bg since everything's so new and formated *sighs* stupid CSS disabling piece of crap. it's good in some ways because adam can now change huge parts of the websites very easy but bad in others because it limits what creativity the users have.
You're like me. That's the exact reason i made this challenge. I always want to enter them but they're all.. so stupid. i dont care about anime. I dont care about OCs, I dont care about couples, I care that Big Bang's new album comes out in august. *nods satisfied*
xDDDD<3 as long as you.. are illustrating sound... i guess it's fine with me i just really do not want people drawing anime characters on this one. (i understand you're not but i mean generally)
Otakuite++ | Posted 06/08/10 | Reply
Over half the music I listen to is Jap, some Korean too. I rly like Asian Kung-fu Generation Anyway to the point, I'm def gunna enter this challenge, thnx for inviting me!
Grand Otaku | Posted 06/08/10 | Reply
Well, yes. That's the character from the manga. Vocaloid is not a song, but an electronic song generator. And no, I wouldn't draw her. >.> The manga has absolutely no point to it and I personally dislike it
is she the girl that's in raising phoenix's icon? .... i'm sorry i still have... no clue what it is. All I caught was... vocaloid was a software that had to do with music honestly... ._.
uh.... if it's a song go for it but please dont draw the blue girl.
Vocaloid isn't really anime. Hatsune mix is based of Vocaloid voices.
Vocaloid is actually a computer program that generates voices and music. It's basically computerized music. And its in Japanese... >.>
i'm going to ask a really stupid question ._. ....
What IS vocaloid...?
I'm not into anime at all^^; i liked the old stuff but I haven't seen anything in a few years. Sry you're going to have to explain this to me. (assuming it's anime)
k just checking ^^ I know someone will do that and I have warned people i'm not afraid to disqualify stuff.... some people did get very upset last time I held a contest.. -_-;
idk i feel like you shouldn't even get a participation medal if you dont even follow the rules. (not saying you're going to do that just explaining frustration^^^^^^;;;;;;;;;;;)
I love your song choice though- i do miss that song.
=_= my god youngsters are so demanding...
mm I really can't say that because i'm in school year round. If i have time then I would draw something for the winner but if not I would have to come up with something else see? I dont want to promise something I can't do. You shouldn't enter a contest based on what you can get but more for the fun of it. You're putting your skills to the test and improving your artwork everytime you enter one. You learn what to and not to do based on other entries. If this topic isn't interesting or fun to you, you shouldn't join. I just notice how I really would like to enter contests but the problem is no one ever holds contests I want to enter in. Most people ask others to draw original characters. I dont want to do that because I dont like drawing anime or people for that matter. But if there was a music one I would enter it in a heart beat if I had the time.
Well, you've explained everything here except for one little thing... What are the prizes for the top 3 winners other than medals? Or do we just get medals and the satisfaction of coming up with noteworthy artwork? X3
This looks interesting. I've never illustrated a song before, but not because I never thought about it. =3 Perhaps I may give this one a thought, ne?
Rising from Ashes (Otaku Eternal) | Posted 06/08/10 | Reply
Oh okay, good! And of course not, I wasn't planning on drawing any FMA into it anyway. Thanks!
Okay, I'm gonna ask an obvious question: Can we use Vocaloid?
Nana is a japanese artist so I'm fine with it but I dont want to see FMA in your drawing alright? Illustrate what the song is talking about not so much applying how it fits into fma
Would the song Kesenai Tsumi by Nana Kitade be all right? If so I'd like to try this~
O-o wtf? LOL .... ok like big bang is a korean group. they're from korea. write in korea but they have english and japanese songs. that's fine. i'm down with that if that's what you're asking me xDDDD
but what i mean is.. please dont do lady gaga just because she toured in korea </3

AH THIS SOUNDS FUN 8D
Actually I had an idea once to try to do an album-themed set of drawings
For certain bands that I liked and stuff
So I can finally get started with this motivation! haha
I might do Bonamana or....this;
I wasn't; she would, but I was just stating my love for that song by using caps and a heart symbol.
Nevermind bout the perfect song. I saw it on your list. I don't want a song on off the list. <o< When's the due date for this? Can I have multiple submissions?
Ha ha ha ha ha.
Akatsuki no Kuruma by Yuuka...such a pretty song ^^
You shouldn't copy kimmeh... she'll kick your ass
xD Well someone's got to keep it alive!
Think I just got the perfect song too...
I'll think of something.
YOU BETTER JEAN! WITH ALL THOSE UPDATES YOU PUT UP ON SESSHY'S BLOG?!
O.o what song?
Oh boy, I'm definitely going to suck up this contest. :3
wow this is perfect timing...I was about to do something like this to my favorite song...great challenge!! definitely will enter ^^
o.o well.... run devil run would be harder but at the same time passion is probably going to end up being done by multiple people since it is a popular song and utada is a popular artist... personally I would do run devil run unless you have a really amazing idea for passion
Yup! you can do whatever you'd like. The list is only for people who dont know about music from asia and want to try it ^_^
