Hey art forum! Long time post. Welcome to round 2 of my musical cover art mini competition!
The winner from the previous competition was MurphysFlaw! Congrats, I finally got around to officially announcing the winner, hahah. You can see his winning art by checking out my profile picture with the green haired girl with headphones. Yeah. he drew that. Seriously some top notch stuff. Thank you so much man!
As suggested before, I'll simply choose the art that I like best to be used as cover art for one of my tracks. Or album. You can check out my music through my profile page(arranged with my music as the top category) or hear my latest song Bass Science at soundcloud.com/cabbster . This is mainly to have a reference of my history but does in no way reflect the quality of my recent projects that I've been spending serious amounts of time and effort to make. Just a thought. Bass science took me 50 hours to make. My current project in progress, twice as long I've been working on, mostly just experimenting with sound, and everything else to get a nice sound with actual feelings attached to it. No more bullshitting after this point. Do or die
why should I contribute?
This is a collaboration of the arts, in two visual assets. Music enhances art, and vice versa. To get right down to it I will be submitting my song as a demo to a particular HardStyle label that followed my soundcloud recently. As you may know, different art can be submitted to each individual song, and is the only visual besides the waveform.
uhh that didn't answer my question: why?
Well there's many reasons. If you want more people to pay attention to your art, or if you want to practice your collaborative skill then now's your chance. Or if you simply want input. Whatever. Or if you just want to help me out a bit.
any reason why you don't just contact people's art that you like individually to collaborate?
It would take too long to garner a response i need while excluding the potential artists that can test their mettle against the odds of artistic struggle. Plus a lot of people just browse these forums to try a little challenge. I know I do that for the audio portal myself.
I want you to draw Layers.. I want you to use your skill, imagination, and creativity to draw it any way you can.
I'm not being specific here, so I can truly see the originality of the forum posters here if they decide to participate.
Probably. I might have messed up explaining somewhere. You can pm me for clarification or just ask here. I'm hoping the submissions will greatly outweigh the discussions, due to the fact that its a mini competition. Though there's no deadline (basically when the thread dies its over). I'll be constantly checking for submissions over the week and give input on what I think depending on the volume of submissions. Then I'll decide on a winner, give a little announcement for who wins, then use it as cover art for my next song.

Well that's it. Summed up, my music will be a platform for your art. In other words, your art of layers will consequently be layered onto my music
Seeing a creation through the lense of an artist will always make you think. That's what makes it art.
