MAY CHALLENGE of the MONTH


Please read all below for the rules for this month's challenge. :smiley:



You've all got favorite songs don't you? Then, all you have to do is show us your take on those favorite songs of yours.


Do you see the song played out in a 'mind movie'? Does it remind you of some moment in your life or someone you used to know? What encapsulates the visions in your head when you listen to it? Show us! Pick 3 (three) of your favorite songs and let's see them.



 
THE RULES:
The title of the song, the band who plays/sings it and some amount of lyrics or description to give idea to the moment in the song where image is directed are REQUIRED.

If Classical or Opera is your thing, you need the title, the composer and a sufficient description of the scene you are portraying, as they don't all have lyrics to go with them. 

All songs must be off a professional or indy studio-produced record, tape or cd for any music from tape or 33 1/3 on up. The rest is up to you!



This contest will run until MIDNIGHT E.D.T. on Thursday, May 31st, 2018.
Normal contest rules apply.

No you big silly, this is an art contest not a talent one...although that would be good to see in a post.

You just need to render some art letting us know what the song is-who sings or wrote it and everything else listed in the first post.

Sounds like a wonderfully fun contest this month.

Fear not,
You are never alone,
I am there to comfort and guide you...
Always.

Must the 3 art be all 3 different artiest?
Or may you do 3 different songs from 1 artiest?
Or 2 songs from 1 artist and 1 song from 1 artiest makes 3 entries.

All our contests can have 3 entries from each artist (we/us). No more than 3 but you can have less than 3.

Just pick three favorite songs, or two, or one. It doesn't matter who the band/artist is. No they don't have to all be the same artist.

The rule is that you must say in your description who is the artist and what is the name of the song. You also leave some lyrics for what you are illustrating in your render. What do you see in your head when you listen to that song?

One more thing about the artists, NN. They have to be a known professionally recorded and published band. On a professional label.

I have a song but it's from a movie, an anime to be precise. The piece of music is one I am hoping to do an animation of once I get better at animating, been planning this for years, since I first saw the anime. There are no lyrics, I have both the name and artist, but was not release on an album of any kind...is it still acceptable?????


OMG...Mongo Jerry - In The Summertime...I so love that song.  (finds song on youtube...starts singing and chair dancing to the song)

Amine movies mostly release official OST's. InuYasha, Blood+, Bleach, Castle in the Sky etc.
Ost with Opening and Endings singles with famous Japanese bands or / and just pure The Anime / Anime movie music.
Like the OST for example Lord of The Rings.
So the chance that your anime movie has a OST is very big.
And that it is mostly sold in Japan does not make it unofficially. After all Sony Music is huge in Japan. 
I am very into the anime too. Not going to do an anime though, but i am very currius to your work!

PS if a anime is not on the list try google it with the officially Japanese Titel.

The anime in question is Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind and it's the piece of music near the end of the movie when she stops the stampede and the creatures save her. I checked online and a soundtrack was released with the song in question I want to do.

Thanks for the response and the link, bookmarking that for future use...lol

I just wish I could do that anime now, it would be perfect for this piece of music what I have in mind, but an image will have to do for now and already know how I am going to do it, it will be the basis for the animation...lol   I use to play that song on repeat when I went to sleep at night, my kids think I have weird taste in music...lol
