I've hit one for my second entry and I've nearly finished it somehow.

Funnily enough, same here. Just completely redone the Chorus of my second entry and now it sounds amazing!

Managed somehow to get a stroke of inspiration and make song 2. Now I have one half-finished and two finished. The two finished I tell a story with, they'll be attached. :D

Haven't been on NG in forever, but saw this and had to participate since I have another couple weeks.

Already found my image and started my song... Just waiting to hear back from the artist.

So, I thought I'd post this here since I was directed from the contest thread. The artwork I want to use is from an unscouted artist. He is most definitely a newgrounds artist and submits his work here, asks for feedback, etc. though, he hasn't been scouted yet. There is absolutely nothing in the rules that prohibits use of his artwork for this contest, but I want to be clear about this before moving on. Is it acceptable or not?

As I said before, I prefer a scouted artist that's more public in the art portal. If he isn't scouted, someone can scout him, you could always try to get someone to scout him.

I do put it to the contest thread, with the pic which inspired me, but no one made a comment about it.
I feel a bit sad... :(

if you're expecting reviews, post it in the audio ads thread or the review request club.
you can't always expect people and (good form of) attention to come out of thin air.

Sounds a bit discriminatory to me, but whatever, it's your contest. Also, it's generally bad form to ask to be scouted, and from my understanding lowers your chances. I'd really like to make something for this, but it looks like I won't be participating

Well, two tracks finished and one to go, I just have to clarify two things.
In one of my songs there's a small section with a seq that sounds like Benny Benassi, but it comes with Nexus, which is a well-known VST. Is that allowed?
Also, when I post the thing, how do I post it so it shows up not as a link but as a thing with pic and rating and all that?
Do I do

this?

Yep, it's cool.

Nope, you just put the link in the post normally (as in, not using the Link HTML thingy)

Got the perfect idea for my third and final entry! I've started it roughly but I am waiting for a reply from the artist now. It's going to sound more stereotypical of the genre I compose in but it's going to be a very fun concept to compose and sing for!

Ugh fine, just so everyone is happy, I'll allow unscouted artists. I'm going to hide in a hole now.

While I already have an idea of how the piece is going to go, I still haven't seen hide nor hair of my headset yet. If it does come to me before the deadline, I'll work hard on finishing the song by then. If it doesn't, I will have to sit this one out.

I saw there is not allowed with art from unscouted artist for art. But does the same rule imply for MUSIC artists for entering the contest?

This is such a cool initiative for a new NG member, such as myself, to be able to get involved in. Don't really mind if I place or not but its cool that I could connect with another artist and share ideas and opinions on each others work(audio/visual) with the purpose of creating something.
So, thanks
