I searched the threads. I've found nothing like this. This has the potential to be the most raddest awesomest girliest challenge yet! Why? BECAUSE WE'RE GIRLS!! And we need to show all the CA guys that we kick ass! So let's do it, ladies! All of the female users of conceptart.org, let's have a challenge. After all, it was Aunty Entity who built the empire at which the Thunderdome was established. Let's show Tina Turner some love!
Challenge: FEMALE CONTESTANTS ONLY 2D ART BATTLE
- Your choice. Have fun!
- 2D Digital and traditional media are all acceptable.
- NO photography (or photo manipulations) allowed.
****Subject: Visually Interpret a Song of Your Choice****
This is an open idea. Visually interpret a song of your choice and list the song name and song artist info with your entry. No need to include the text in the art. Just include it in your post. (Unless, of course, you want to include artistic text in your entry.) A link to an mp3 would be VERY APPRECIATED and helpful, or a link to a free download/sample, just so we can all hear the song. Also, post the song lyrics in this thread if your song has lyrics, or post the song verse here if your song is based on just a verse. This contest will be based on both your skill level and how well you depict the song.
Thanks to Queensoul for the link to www.pandora.com
! Use it to listen to others' songs!

This is a one month challenge. Please use that whole month.
No final entries should be showing IN THIS THREAD because I'll create a new thread with your entries and with voting enabled. This is so we can all be surprised with the beautiful entries all at once!
Only entries specifically created for this contest should be entered. No entering old works you did months ago. That's cheating!
A public poll will be created on April 25 so EVERYONE (both boys and girls) can participate in voting for their favorite work of art. Judging should reflect both skill level and how well the artist depicts her song.
Well, usually, winning a T-dome means you get the honor of being called a winner. However, there is now a NEW PRIZE!!!! Jason Manley has just informed me that THE TOP 10 ARTISTS OF THIS CONTEST WILL RECEIVE TUITION PASSES FOR THE UPCOMING CONCEPTART.ORG MONTREAL WORKSHOP!!!! OMG!!!!! Hope this encourages all of you girls to try your best, as this is an AMAZING prize!!! (Thank you so much, Jason, for allowing this to happen! Bravo, sir!)
