Welcome to the Song Comic contest. Many people find music inspirational, especially artists; and I'm no exception. I love the times when I'm walking to and fro Uni with my ipod. It's definitely the time I have most ideas and inspiration. So my idea is this: Every month, I shall pick one song and based on the music and/or lyrics of that song, I want you to produce one page of a comic. It can be a one frame page, or a ten fame page, my main point is that it should be inspired and based on the music I give you. I'll try and make my music selection quite varied, so there should be a track for everyone. There will be prizes. Tangible, real, prizes. Everyone loves prizes.


Rules & Information:

1. Your art only, obviously. Stolen entries will be removed, and you will be disqualified from all future contests.

2. Medium: pretty much anything goes - your comic could be made up of photos, fingerprint, smeared marshmellows on a page, as long as we can tell what's happening, it's cool.

3. Each contest will last one month, giving time in between to set up a poll, and get the voting sorted. Which means that it will probably work out as a new contest every other month.

4. If you don't have access to the song, drop me a note, and I'll do my best to send it to you, or find a way for you to hear it. But I'm pretty sure you'll be able to find all of them on YouTube.

5. What you're supposed to produce is one page of a comic, so your entry should be page shaped, obviously. And please don't try to fit a ludicrous amount of content on this one page. I'm sure you've all read or at least seen a comic of some sort, so you know the kind of thing you're aiming for.

6.You can use the lyrics of the song in the comic page, if you so wish. It's not obligatory, but if you want to, that's fine by me. :)

7.The comic obviously doesn't have to be a completely story with beginning middle and end. That would be a bit much to ask in one page. It's just a snippet of a story I want you to show, a single scene, or even just part of a scene.

2008-02-22 [SilverFire]: iippo. I has one. :O

2008-02-22 [iippo]: Dude :O Awesome! <3

2008-02-22 [Triola]: :O Teh cool! :D I've been known to dabble in comic pages >.> :D

2008-02-22 [SilverFire]: XP *finds out some music about Greek mythology*

2008-02-22 [Triola]: Gahh, nooooes! :O You fiend! >.<

2008-02-22 [SilverFire]: *L*, let's start with this song:

Not quite Greek mythology but... Mesopotamians! :P

2008-02-22 [Triola]: Waay too easy, people won't make a comic based on the lyrics, they'll just do the characters that someone else already drew for them, all they have to do is copy and come up with something resembling a plot/some action :P

2008-02-22 [SilverFire]: Don't worry, I have no intention of using that song. :P There's very little lyrical content, other than naming the Mesopotamian kings. But there's a problem people will copy the video no matter what song I pick. :P So the best solution is for them not to look at the video. :D

2008-02-23 [iippo]: :P Dude, I was thinking of the Mesopotamians too when reading this conversation.

2008-02-23 [Duke Devlin]: Ooo this sounds great! :D <3

2008-03-01 [Cia_mar]: oooo good song....

2008-03-01 [SilverFire]: I'm not a huge fan of Linkin Park, but my friend sent me Minutes to Midnight, and but for one or two of the songs, I thought it wasn't bad. :P

2008-03-01 [Sunny Silverunicorn]: Oh My! LP! So in favor of me this time! ;) I just love them!

2008-03-01 [SilverFire]: And here was me worried it would be an unpopular choice. :P

2008-03-02 [NamelessMerc]: I like it. Haven't listened to Linkin Park in years, but that wasn't half bad.
