Alright, the previous contest for fun seemed to garner enough interest to perform a second one. I will outline the very basic rules in a moment, but I must emphasize again that this is a contest for FUN. A chance to just try something new for FUN and not worry too much about winning or losing. Try something different in your entries maybe, use it as a chance to learn or better yourself at something, and most of all enjoy yourself. Without the stress of worry in regards to winning or losing it is a chance to do something, see what others have done, and have a good time without drama etc.
     OK. This time here is the deal: I will provide a few references for a few characters below. The idea is to choose one or more of those characters (minimum of one, you could use all if you really wanted to) and place them within an image based on the theme. The theme this time is a bit more malleable, though; choose one of your favourite songs and draw an image involving the character(s) you chose based on what the song makes you think of/feel. Include somewhere on the image the artist and song name also. upon entry if you wish to explain uipon posting what the song makes you think of relative to the image that is only helpful.
  it's a good chance to mix art and music, two things people both vary heavily in regards to taste, but also tend to enjoy. So choose character(s), choose song, use inspiration and make it your own.

   Whomever wants to participate will have a one month period to create and submit artwork for entry. Upon the one month mark myself and selected judges will peruse the entries to come up with a first, second, and third place winner. All entries will be showcased regardless of placement. This is not a Deviantart only contest.
I would encourage people to participate for FUN and perhaps as a chance to do something to try and improve your own artwork in some way, perhaps by trying something you have not before.

More than one entry can be submitted, so long as they are in by the deadline. That deadline is April 10th, 2007. Judgement will be made within a week afterwards, allowing time for us to gather entries and make proper judgement.

    The list of characters:

SERGEI the mongoose……

KAIE the rabbit……

KASSANDRA the lemur……

LEIGH the dragon……

MYNE the lemur……

AIDAN the goat( big guy) and/or MALACHI the dingo-mutt (little guy)……

Completed entries can be linked in a note to me here, or you can email me at If you email an entry, please do NOT send files over 500k as ttachments. If they are of that size or larger please load them to a server and send me the link to the image(s).

This contest begins now, so again I encourage you to give it a go and have some fun ^^ Any questions can be directed to me via email or notes and I will do my best to respond.

I like the fact that one of your characters is a goat (one of my favorite animals and foods), but I don't think I could imagine any of these guys in a scenario that emulates "Rapper's Delight" by the Sugar Hill Gang.

Nevertheless, I'll see what I can think up, if anything.

Good grief!! Another contest!! This time with more characters and choices of music (absolutely mesmerizing)!! :faint:

*curses at school for being swamped with useless retarded essays* :shakefist:

From your website, I see that most of your favorite bands/singers are of the heavy-metal/grudge/techno calibre, with their songs mostly from the 90's and recent years (this decade were living in sounds too silly to adress). I also notice a few 80's new-wave groups and 70's classic-rock stars. This is not a critique, just an observation.

Are you familiar with surf rock, british rock, motown, acid rock of the 60's or disco/funk from the 70's-early 80's? (the stuff you grew up to)

I'd love to see the speed of developments in the coming weeks. That includes me! :work:
