Welcome to the long-awaited art contest I promised! Thank you for 250 subs, and I hope we can continue to grow. <3 Please read all of the information, I’m sorry there is a lot.

Now, you may be wondering by the title how music is going to be involved with this. My theme is a little bit different. For this contest, you will be creating a drawing based off of a song. No, you will not just make some person with a shirt on that has a member of a band or something on it.

The goal for this contest is to create a drawing (person, creature, collage of objects, etc) that portrays the feelings or meaning behind a particular song. You can can pick any song, no matter how old or how new.

How do you do that? It’s up to you. You can be as creative as you want. Your song can be cheerful or it can be deep and filled with sorrow. Just a small hint: Think about symbolism. What can you use to symbolically show the feelings?

Please include the song song you based the drawing off of in your description!

Rules
-No copying, think of your own original ideas (light references are allowed, please add them to your submission if you use any).

-Keep it appropriate (if your song is deep and expresses a strong theme, please just let me know. I will most likely accept it).

-You can research objects you could use for symbolism, but think of your own way to express it in your drawing.

-You can create your drawing digitally or traditionally.

-Be creative! Have fun with it and don’t just slap down an entry. I want you to think about this for a while.

-Please be respectful to every contestant. We all have different styles and skill levels and art should never be harshly criticized.
Judges (In need of 1 more)

Judge Criteria
-Creativity: A large part of this is the uniqueness and originality of your artwork.

-Use of color: By no means do you have to color this. Think about what will look best with your design. If you choose not to color your drawing, do not do this just because you do not want to color it.

-Technique: Everyone has a different style, so this is a less important category. This just basically judges the overall presentation of your drawing
Prizes

First:
-A drawing request from me (see my drawing request template for more details)
-A skin request from me (see my skin request template for more details)
-Profile featured on mine and the judges’ profiles for 3 weeks

Well, it looks like I'm done with my entry! I decided to place it on imgur because as a quality over quantity blogger, I see no point in placing my entry in one. This one is based off a certain song from Teacher's Pet called Small But Mighty. I hope you like it! :D

Ok so what if the song that I’m doing has a music video and I want to draw a scene from that? Would that count?

Could you maybe make your own twist to the scene? Like maybe alter the colors or add something to make it more original?
