Hello, and Happy Thursday! I hope you all had a great week and enjoyed the April Fools' shenanigans! ;P

Thank you all for participating in last week's Throwbacks Contest! It was wonderful to see all of your older artwork! It's clear from the way you described them that you've all grown and learned over your time at deviantART, and that's wonderful!

Music has a way of touching us in a way that nothing else can. Whether you have a favorite song or musical piece, it can inspire your artistic juices in new and exciting ways. So, this week, we're looking to music to help us create our art!
  • Create a deviation or muro drawing inspired by one of your favorite songs and/or musical pieces! Share the deviation or muro drawing in a comment on this journal.
  • Any medium is acceptable. If you decide to go with literature, please limit it to 1,000 words, or 20 lines, if poetry.
  • Include the name of the song or musical piece that you were inspired by in the comment with the deviation/drawing.
  • Five Premium Members who take part will be selected to win 800 Points each! Selections will be based on creativity and overall impact.
  • All entries must be in Tuesday, April 8, 2014 at 11:59 PM Los Angeles time.

What do you get when you cross a record-breaking, best-selling car racing video game with a French kids' cartoon based off Charlie's Angels? You get this:

Grand Theft Auto V/Totally Spies Crossover by totally-espionne

This was done entirely to Fergie's "Glamorous", which is also one of the songs that can be heard on the radio in the actual GTA game. :) I was going for the whole Hollywood (or Vinewood?) vibe of glitz and fame, not to mention trying to combine elements of both forms of media into one piece. Hope I did at least okay!

Body Parts by PoeticIllustrationInspired by the song Criminal as sung by Britney Spears,  A random song in a YouTube playlist that has a video that inspired me to this.  The "criminal" actually saves her from a terrible relationship that she may have otherwise stood in.  As well, there's a twist were she now helps him, making her a criminal as well.

Ooo awesome challenge!
I won't be able to participate in this one (no time, sadly :( ), but I wanted to join in the conversation, even without joining the contest itself. I loooove Cirque du Soleil music for artistic inspiration :love: I find the flowy rhythms work really well with art creation for me.

It's the album cover from Nirvana's "In Utero" album.  Fitting for the beginning of April, considering the events of 20 years ago.

The concept for this edit and the story were inspired by Robert Downey Jr's song, Broken.

Here is a little video with some of the steps to make the edit along with a clip of RDJ's Broken.

Why not make a song?  I've seen some art here at DA that uses song with imagery.  How is that done?  Is there a tutorial?  I am curious for any amount of information.  I am Gary from the band BL8ant.

Yes, I have several sites.  The one I am working on now (and I like the best) is on IndabaMusic.  It is a remix site, and everyone can join up and make music there.  I do this for a hobby.  Here is the link to my spot: indabamusic.com/people/compusi…

music has been inspiration in life since day 1. I don't know where'd I be without it. I just set my heart out and perform.

www.youtube.com/watch?v=tHnFZ7… (my cover of "Summer" by Calvin Harris) I put this cover out 4 days ago and its already got 50k views.


www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y8ygKn… ("Not A Bad Thing" by Justin Timberlake) This song inspired my soon to be released single "Sunshine". Which is just about this girl that stands out because of her beauty and difference; she has this glow. Like Sunshine.

paint it black by ephemeral-d Isn't my favorite song, anymore. But was it for many, many years "Paint it black" from the Stones. Now I haven't have a favorite song anymore, only many songs I like a lot, but still love this song.

Congrats to all winners from last week.

Wow, another fun challenge. Music indeed does help to create sometimes.
I often get inspired by the littlest things in life. It could even be a bird singing or a fun experience with my colleagues when talking before walk.
Music does a lot more than inspiring artists to create :) :nod:.
