What's up all you lovelies?
I had an interesting idea the other night for an art challenge. This challenge has probably been done before, but in case it hasn't, I came up with it~
For the challenge, I'm going to do pictures based off of 10 song titles from some of my favorite artists, with one lyric/two lines from the song as the basis for each picture. The catch is that the songs cannot be made for a film/show/game, a fan song, or score. There is allowed to be ONE exception to that rule, though. So, you're allowed one song from a show/game/film or a fansong. But only one. Also, only one song per artist.
This challenge is for OC's and interpretations of characters, for example my interpretations of the night guards. You're allowed to include canon characters, but the focus needs to be on your OCs. Also, you're only allowed to use the selected OC's for that one song. For example, I can't include Arcadia in more than one picture.
Now, here's the best part... you, my lovely watchers, get to choose which OC's of mine get to go to which songs I'm choosing! That way, it's all randomized. You can choose from any of my OC's (even ones I've never specifically drawn or shown on this website) listed on my profile or here
I hope that's understood. The goal is to complete them within 30 days, or a month.
Here's my list of songs and lyrics, now go on and choose who goes where!
1. Little Boxes
by Walk Off the Earth - "They’re all made out of ticky tacky, and they all look just the same."
2. Lola Montez
by Volbeat - "Wherever she walks, she'll be captivating all the men. Don't look in her eyes, you might fall and find the love of your life."
3. When Can I See You Again
by Owl City - "Don't close your eyes 'cause your future's ready to shine. It's just a matter of time, before we learn how to fly."
4. Desperate Measures
by Mariana's Trench - "I'll give you something to cry about. Show some skin, and would be, caché, how could you let this get to desperate measures now?"
by Studio Killers - "I wanna ruin our friendship, we should be lovers instead."Characters:
6. The Trial
by Pink Floyd - "Since, my friend, you've revealed your deepest fears... I sentence you to be exposed before your peers!"Characters:
Jack the Purple Man (as Pink); Freddy as the Prosecutor, Foxy as the Schoolmaster, Chica as the Wife, Bonnie as the Mother, and Golden Freddy as the Judge.
by Melanie Martinez - "No one ever listens, this wallpaper glistens. One day they'll see what goes down in the kitchen."
8. Viva La Gloria (Little Girl)
by Green Day - "Little one, little one, the sky is falling. Your lifeboat of deception is now sailing."
9. Famous Blue Raincoat
by Jonathon Coulton - "Yes, and thanks, for the trouble you took from her eyes. I thought it was there for good so I never tried."
10. Sloppy Seconds
by Watsky - "Show me someone who says they got no baggage, I'll show you somebody whose got no story. Nothing gory means no glory, but baby please don't bore me."
I just wanted to say thank you all again for over 1k watchers!!! It means so much to me that people from all around the art enjoy my art ;w; thank you all again. I love you all! <33
And now, I figured that since I still have a few slots open, I should make a new journal so more people can be interested in entering my contest!
I'd also like to say that the first part of the contest (this part) is going to have an end date, so everyone who has entered or is going to enter NEEDS to submit their entry by...
If the second slot of a power is not full, or an entry is not in by this date, the opposing slot will automatically win.
For those who have their entries in, sit back and relax! You can plan ahead for the second part of the contest ;3
The only question I'll give for it for right now is this:Why should your character be a part of the Slaves of Stanley, the Heart Society, or just unaligned? What makes them better than the rest?
Something to think about ;D
And now, onto the copypasta from the last journal (with a few tweaks)!
I'm currently holding a contest in honor of my webcomic, Arcadia
, which I'm currently in pre-development for! As you may or may not know, I've posted a ref for the so-called "superhumans" that the comic revolves around. Which you can find here:
There's a whole description for them there, so I won't copy/paste it here.
Now, for the world of Arcadia
, it's pretty difficult to single-handedly come up with over 100 or so powers and characters to go along with the powers. So, for this contest, I'm going to give a list of unused powers below. You must choose one (OR TWO!) of these and create a character (OR TWO!)!
Here are the main characters, well, some of them. Use them as a reference for your character to "blend in" --->
This character must have a few specific things, though: Facial Markings and Tattoos
; how many do they have? How strong are they? Are the tattoos predominately on their arm? Their belly? Their face? Tattoos themselves are pretty basic. Lines, tribal-esque, dots; some can be pretty different but try not to go too
different. An Affiliation
; are they members of the Heart Society (the good guys)? Are they slaves of Stanley (the bad guys)? Are they between the two of them/antiheroes? Or are they unaligned? IF THEY ARE HEART SOCIETY: please explain how they were found/how they came to be in it. Remember, unaligned =/= bad guy! Keep in mind that most Moxies are unaligned or the bad guys. An Ability that fits their character
; are they masters at hand-to-hand combat? Can they walk through magma? Are they able to handle harsh weather conditions? Ability must have something to do with their powers in some way. How they Died/Why they have the powers they do
; did they die in a bear hunting accident? How about a broken neck from some mobster? Did they get struck by lightning? A Heart Meter
; how far along in their journey are they? Are they new Moxies or have they been collecting heart shards? Original Design/No Mary-Sues
; they can't have rainbow hair and sparkle like diamonds... unless that's one of their abilities. A Name
; they don't have to have BOTH a human/real name and a Moxie name, but they can if you want to! But their Moxie name needs to have something to do with their character. Can they fly?
; wings or no wings. Clothing; i
f they're in the Heart Society, they have a red heart with two black lines through it; one vertical, one horizontal. Their clothing has to have some blue on it. If they're on Stanley's side, they have a marionette's handle, in an X shape, with lines coming down and reaching the end of their sleeve/clothing/whatever. If they aren't in either of those two factions, their clothing doesn't really matter much.
Here's a template you can use to describe them (This can also be used to describe any OC Moxies NOT in this contest)). ??? (Name): The Moxie of ??? (Power)Real Name:
((They may not know; but if you want them to have a real name or think they remember it, go for it!))Age:
((Again, something they may not know, but a range like "mid-20's" works just the same.))Ethnicity:
((What race(s) are they? Are they entirely one ethnicity or are they a "mutt?"))Sexual Orientation:
((Self explanatory; if they have certain pronouns, here's the place to put them too.))Home Town:
((Another thing they may not know, but gives a certain depth to the character; i.e. if they're from the UK, they'll most likely have an accent.))Power:
((This is their power. i.e. Ink Generation; Shadows. Only they can control this.))Ability:
((This is their ability. i.e. Change the hue of their ink; teleport through shadows/shadowy areas. Doesn't have to strictly have something to do with their power. Remember, if they have many Heart Shards, they have a few other abilities. You don't have to list them, unless you know what Moxie they've killed so far in their arc etc.))Weakness:
((What makes them weak? Are they weak to water-based attacks? Think logically.))Affiliation:
((Are they in the Heart Society, Slaves of Stanley, or simple unaligned?))Ranking:
((See: Moxie Class Rankings
))Cause of Death:
((How'd they die? Get creative with this one! Stanley loves to get Moxies who suffered through grisly or ironic deaths))Goal(s):
((What are their goals as a Moxie? Is it to just be better than all the others and get that wish? Or is it something more selfless?))Personality:
((What is their personality like? Are they kind but annoying? Selfish but endearing?))Why was were they chosen as the Moxie of ????:
((Be sure to put your power there instead of the ????. Stanley chooses Moxies based on potential, or if their death was grisly, or, especially, if the power is ironic to their death; i.e. Bearhug was killed by a bear, therefore she's the Moxie of Animal Control.))Any Fun Facts?:
((Anything minor or specific you'd like us to know about them.))What does their voice sound like?:
((Could just give a description, but if you have a voice actor/actress in mind, add them!))Theme Song:
((Think of a song that truly encompasses your character.))
So, that's pretty much it! Design a character, be as in-depth as you want. The more in-depth you are, the more chance your character has of winning!!!
Here are the rules: You can choose THREE powers and create THREE characters maximum. There will be a limit to two people per power. Only one design will win that power.
Your Moxie can only have ONE power and cannot associate with any other. For example, you can't have Nail Manipulation and incorporate fire-nails or something like that.
Preferably make a new design; no old characters remade to fit in. Also, please no self-inserts... okay, maybe you can. Note me, we'll talk. Moxies are basically recycled humans, so no furry/anthro characters, preferably. If that's all you can draw, we can work something out!
No all-powerful demons either. They only have one power. No stealing/copying art. No recolors. If you cannot draw very well, you CAN write an entry. It needs to be pretty detailed. If you prefer to use bases, that's fine too. I even made a base for this contest in particular. That's right here!:
You may be asking... what are the prizes?
Well. The winner for each slot will make an appearance in the comic! Whether it is a major role or just a cameo in the Moxie Database is dependent on how well your design/character is. The loser for each slot will still get minor cameo appearances in the comic, but as humans/passerbys.
Basically I'll draw your character no matter what. Everyone wins!
Once all of the designs are in and the winners for each power decided, there will be a second part of the contest to determine who will actually appear in the comic as a major role in either affiliation! So, they WILL be canon if you win the second part of the contest. Those winners will also be drawn, officially, by me.
I know it doesn't sound like much, but it is to me!
