I'll probably enter in this. :D

You know, I almost did a collab close to this. We were going to write music inspired by eras of music and find artists willing to make art pieces matching the music then package it in a flash project. Everyone was too busy though. Hopefully this will work!

Well the songs have to be mainly inspired by the art piece. Gah i know i didnt put no covers or remixes, but it does say the inspiration mainly comes from the art piece, so that says enough I'd think lol. Hopefully Rucklo will be somewhere in sight of this contest if he chooses to join though :)

Alright, I got permission from one artist for a piece I really like but I figure I'll give a shot at Rucklo's Mudkip drawing as well for teh lulz.

God I hope that gay wad gets back to me :p

I also really loved this one piece by Tyra White... I think we should be allowed to mutually do same artists if a piece of theirs is loved well enough. If we're allowed to do multiple submissions then I just cock blocked everyone from three potentially awesome peeps. As for the image I already got permission for, the piece is called "Frostbite." It's gonna be a song about some really cold bitch that sits around in ice water and what not. Expect it to be some sort of minimal ambient glitch track. Given this artists choice of textures and temperatures, I think I'll have fun getting creative with it. Should be interesting. I haven't written anything minimalist in a loooong time.

I haven't seen anyone ask this yet, but forgive me if they have. If we PM an artist that either has gone inactive or does not respond, can we still use their piece? Is there some kind of other validation process? Since art on the Art Portal works kind of like the Audio Portal (you can use the pieces on NG as long as you credit the artist in the submission), could we simply credit them that way? Or would we need to get some other approval?

Just wondering.

Awesome contest idea! I was just thinking of writing music based on NG art pieces the other day.

I sent the artist a PM and already have ideas flowing. >:D

That's pretty cool, you know, that's similar to the idea I was going to do in a few months. This contest is happening again in a few months or so later on this year, only there will be a twist involving the artists like that, kinda just gave it away, but it's a little different. Were you the one who had the idea, or was it a friend's? Next time around, I'm going to find a programmer for it.

Nice! Yes you can submit up to 3 songs, and you can make them inspired by one picture you choose or up to 3 you want. As for that image, I'm familiar with it, very beautiful yes, also at the edge of the rules, but it's just her ass so it's fine :P. Your idea sounds like it has a lot of potential, I look forward to hearing it!

Nope, sorry. Rules say you've got to have permission from the artist. I want to make sure every artist is aware, so if you don't hear anything back within a week, I'd move on. There's 6 weeks so there's plenty of time though.

J/k, dood. But I agree with everyone else who said this is a good idea. I've done this before with Alvin Hew, but it would be cool to do it again if time permits.

Awesome. 6 weeks should be plenty of time but I can imagine how one's schedule can be filled up even to 2 months lol. Thanks, I plan on doing this contest again in a few months with a twist involving artists more too, originally I did this idea with two songs, and had fun with it. This being one of them

How ungrateful. If you would make a song based on my artwork, I'd respond within 10 minutes. In fact I'll give you permission in advance (hint).

Progress: Lyrics have been written. Provisory tune being written in my head, I may want to put this down in OneNote later. Trying to decide on instrumental parts, and I don't want this to sound like a replica of my Sleep Wrapped in Love cover, since I have a tender song in mind.

Not to be the bearer of bad news, but people can still use your works without your permission. Technically can even do so if you explicitly tell them not to (although hopefully people would have enough respect not to do so). The creative commons only really says 1. They can't claim it as their own and have to give you credit when it's used (regardless of permission) 2. They can't make money from it (unless they have your permission to do so), and 3. They can change it however they want (again, regardless of permission), but if they do so they can only distribute it under another Creative Commons license (this prevents people from making some change - big or small - and then copyrighting the result as their own).

Anyway, not trying to be a dick just acknowledging a technicality - anyone in this contest can actually use artwork without needing the artist's permission if they choose (although I would advise against it if they tell you not to, because seriously don't be a douche-bag. Personally I would give them a heads up when you use it anyway because it's always nice to know people like your stuff and want to use it).

Also to expand on point 3: they actually can copyright it under a different licence but only with your permission.

But anyway, this is probably not going to even be an issue. Good luck to everyone in the contest, can't wait to hear all the great entries by talented artists!
