    The topic "8th world wonder" is really good. There are so many ways you could do a new world wonder great idea.

    My idea is to design an own hero. There are so many different storys and heros nut we could imagine our own hero (or group of heroes).

    This is my topic idea, but yours is also interesting.

    Heres a suggestion for you guys,
    -your favorite song

    paint what your favorite song is, what goes through your mind when you hear it, what emotional distress or joy it creates or the madness it influenced you to paint. Of course keeping it in relation to the song and content.
    as bonus you could always post a link to the song-that way everyone knows what the hell just happened in your head. Music to illustration interpretation...hmmm onto something maybe...

    I think a self portrait would be a lovely idea. Don't dig architecture.

    hahahaha, "my sarcasm detector has gone off the scale"
    that really depends on what the song is - If you're a big fan of jimi hendrix its not exactly difficult to paint a picture of your favourite song - whatever tripped out thing next comes into your hippy head. But if you like, for example, death-core metal, you'll be hard pressed to think of anything that isnt just a page full of black paint

    On sarcasm: it should be forbidden for americans tho..*sarcasm *

    What I was trying to imply was, that those two senses are extremely different from each other, and it'd be far too hard task to sucessfully express the emotions created by a song trough an image. It's been tryed(sp?) before, with poor result, and you'd never guess what was the idea, before reading the theory(massive theory at that) behind it.(Kandinsky comes to mind) There is simply no way to hear with your eyes or something like that. Imagine looking at an image, and the first tought you get is: "woah, master of puppets!".
    So I stand by my previous statement: fuck that.

    On a side note-abstract art is too complex for teens. Hell, it's complicated for some of the adult painters too, it seems!

    Success would depend on the song, all songs have a meaning behind their creation. Even instrumentals have meaningful titles which open a window into the origin or story behind them(eg. Beethoven's Ode to Joy, Vivaldi's Four Seasons, Coletrain's Favorite things etc) Metal and death metal are almost always(but not always) tinted with anti political propaganda or political awareness. Every type of music contains a purpose or a message, and so does the songs of that gender. Any rock song will have a story as well as any rap song will have a message. Its really not that hard to do, you of all people should know what your favorite song is all about...after all thats why it's your favorite...right?


    Oh and whats America without sarcasm...

    EDIT: On a second thought, you might be right about it being too complex for the teens. Nevermind, I guess some of us liked our challenges higher when we where teens. laters

    There was an all girls T-Dome earlier where the topic was "Interpret a song through your art", and there were FANTASTIC entries, so it really isn't that hard...

    That's a silly thing to say. I don't think you should be coming around a thread with that type of attitude and patronization. It doesn't help anyone, and definitely doesn't make you look like a hero. Thanks.

    My apologies again if I insulted or demeaned any one on the thread. I'll get out of your hair now, bye. (no sarcasm intended)

    Jake was talking about that part I suppose:
    I guess some of us liked our challenges higher when we where teens
    Patronizing and "I'm better than you" type of statement, par excellance!
    I don't think anyone feelings were hurt, I was just voicing my opinion, i may be wrong on the subject, but take my 2cents for all they'r worth...
    And you shouldn't leave the thread just because someone didn't liked your idea. Feedback=good. No attn.=bad!
