I was inspired by the following art to make an awesome track:

I really wanted to start fresh and this contest might be the perfect oportunity.


Edit: Wow! Thanks for the frontpage, Newgrounds!

THIS is why I'm following you! Right after the 2 minute mark, you pick it up into Lindsey Stirling mode!
Unfortunately, I do still have a bit of issue with some stuff in here. Piano sounds kinda flat. If your DAW has it, use the "humanize" function on the notes, both to vary velocity and timing so that it sounds less robotic. Adding a bit of tremolo and modulation would have been great for the violin as well. You just can't be sounding robotic with cinematic stuff.

TrandafirTeodora responds:

You're right.
I should have made the instruments sound more realistic.
I'm glad you liked it though.

Well done! Really enjoyed it.
Keep up the good work Teodora! :3

TrandafirTeodora responds:

Thank youuuuu!

Neat piece! I can totally see the toad playing his violin there. There are a few points of criticism that I have:

The piano sounds pretty artificial, not so much in the timing, but in the velocity of the notes; it sounds like every note is hit with the exact same amount of power.
Other people have already mentioned this, but until 2:05, there isn't enough variation in the piece to warrant it being as long as it is.
Speaking of the finale, I think the instruments could have fitted together a bit better. The piano and the violin don't change (much) to accommodate the inclusion of the gritty bass and the beat. Some reverb to give the section some more space and grandeur would've served nicely to capitalize off of the tension. I also think something like a choir would've fit nicely here, though that may simply be personal preference.
Not a real big fan of how you handled the kick snare pattern. It's nice to different things, but this feels like it's being different for the sake of being different; it comes across as a bit chaotic, and, in my experience, makes the rhythm a bit more difficult to listen to.
My last piece of criticism is that the silence right after the drums cut out and the piano resumes, at 2:56, could have stood to be a bit longer, actually. That would've nicely drawn out some lasting tension, and given the closing piano a bit more depth and impact.

All in all, I think it's a nice rendition of the image as music, and I can see where the inspiration came from. It could use some work, but that doesn't mean it isn't a good piece. Well done!

TrandafirTeodora responds:


This is pretty good. A bit boring but still a good listen.

TrandafirTeodora responds:


this is a masterpiece

TrandafirTeodora responds:

Thank you so much!
