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.
Im thinking about a theme called "A devils plaything". THats the only thing i can come up with right now.
Capture the scene from a book or story. Any scene you want, just post a slight snippet from the text as the picture's description.
Old Picture Redraw
Dig up the old sketchbooks and doodles from middle school and elementry and recreate them.
well since video game scene was my idea, i'll stick with it, anyone else like that idea? very teenish!
My english sux hard, I meant soulless.
ur favourite streetfighter, and I aint talkin about a redesign! or something along the lines...
Lets vote one of this ideas, so that we can start a new challenge.
I think there are enough suggestions now. What do you think??
Sorry for my absence again, school's been pounding me all week. 8th wonder of the world sounds like a great topic, I'll set up the challnge thread as soon as I get back from my last class for the day.
No, don't worry about the poll, we can just keep suggestions updated in the top post, and the winner can choose one. Once a topic is chosen, it should be in Red so it isn't chosen again. Some suggestions:
Magazine ad for [insert company]
The Power of Music
Urban rebel shoot-out
Kung-fu in the streets
Birth of Magic,
Medieval Troops guarding the gate
Any of the multitude of scenes from the Divine Comedy,
Holding them off
Up & Over!
Assault on the North
Penetrating the City
Eluding the guards
Neo-Rome (think classical Rome)
Owner of Shadows
Martyrdom (moment in which person becomes a Martyr- Dies for their cause)
Autoportrait as N (N=pilot,astronaut,ninja,knight,wizard,hippie etc.etc.)
Free composition done in your weakest medium(e.g.watercolor[moi])
The vehicle(sp?) of your dreams
Portrait of your best friend
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...
Imfuckinpossible, unfortunately...Originally Posted by JLAlfaro
I think a self portrait would be a lovely idea. Don't dig architecture.
Sorry I thought the Teen Challenge was supposed to be..."challenging"
heres a new suggestion:
stick figure Puppy
or better yet
stick figure man in an empty white universe
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
"Never have I seen a greater, or a more beautiful, or a calmer or more noble thing than you, brother" - The Old Man and the Sea - Ernest Hemingway
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?Originally Posted by v0rbiss
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

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.Originally Posted by JLAlfaro
Attitude? Sorry didnt realize I had one-was just reemphasizing what vorbiss said..
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)Originally Posted by v0rbiss
Jake was talking about that part I suppose:Patronizing and "I'm better than you" type of statement, par excellance!I guess some of us liked our challenges higher when we where teens
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!
