I was thinking about a battle idea that you guys could implement. (Granted my skill is nowhere near any of you guys so I can't even imagine participating.)

Here's the idea. Take song lyrics and make a mural based on it.

I was thinking of this song while thinking about this idea:
=============================
Rose by A Perfect Circle
Don't disturb
The beast
The tempermental goat
The snail while he's feeding on
the Rose
Stay frozen, compromising
What I will
I am

Bend around
The wind silently
thrown about
Again I'm treading so
Soft and lightly
Compromising my will
I am

I am
I will
So no longer
Will I
Lay down
Play dead
Play your doe
in the headlights locked down
and terrified
Your deer in the headlights
shot down and horrified when
Push comes to pull comes to shove
Comes to step around this
Self-destructing dance that never
would've ended till I
Rose,
I roared aloud here
I will
I am.

I am
I will
So no longer
Will I
Lay down
Lay dead
Play this
Kneel down
Gun-shy Martyr
Pitiful
I rose, I roared
I will
I am
=============================

You could do this with any song you guys want. Since you guys would be battling. I, in the meantime, will continue to hone my skills.

that's a creative way of looking at a mural... did you see the lyrics battle before? it was fairly cool until it just died, but that wasn't a mural

i'd be up for it if others are. And epic, you'd have to be part of it, coz you were the one who thought of it! doesn't really matter how good you are, you've gotta start somewhere (to use the cliche):p

Yeah, that's sounds like an interesting idea.. Do you mean as in a mural battle (like Nayade's) or start off with a large image (like a rose in a circle) and have people work on it - adding elements that go with a verse?

Pie, I remember the lyrics battle.. I was off the net for like a week and I kinda got confused with the line-up :(

Never saw the lyrics battle. I was kinda scared to even come into this forum because, damn you people are GOOD. :-P

Oh well. Why not. I will start this thing up and hope not to get owned.

Saint, interesting idea. but I was thinking more of a straight mural battle, one direction (left to right). I can host the images on my webspace without a problem.

Anyone interested in doing it with the song I selected?

im up for this ,if thats cool,put me near the bottom of line, because im still in another mural battle,

Sounds like a good idea btw, and looking at the lyrics, could get some real good stuff out of it

epic, i think 25th is a bit long... there are lots' of regulars on this forum so most people should see the post before then. How about 22nd or 23rd? still a few days... i'm impatient to start!

Stuart

and yeah, there's some good stuff to be had from those lyrics

it's just like any theme based battle, but it's also a mural

so you don't have to work off only one line

looking forward to the start ara :D

k well we still haven't heard from ara so i just threw this together tonight... i guess it's just a general song-based serve, but now i hope that the rest of you will make cool ones based on a specific element/mood of the song you like :)

according to the list, SaintB is next up... you still wanna do this Saint?

Stuart

EDIT: also, it wasn't specified, so i worked off a 300 height by 400 width piece, and i think about 100 pixels (or less if ya want) for the transition would be sweet...

hey guys, im really sorry for going MIA

my laptop did a nice little crash and burn and my domain name is, for some wierd reason, expired

no emails
no pshop capable computer

:-(

... double whammy ...

thanks for starting pie please continue guys. i shall join you in a few days when dell sends me a new HDD

by the way .. the first volley should be using "dont disturb.."

u can use as much or as little of the lyrics as you want but you have to go in order of the lyrics please. see pie's specs for the image. since he already served that's a perfectly fine idea.

oh ok... i didn't know we'd be going in order of the lines... but that's cool, make it more of a progression :)

therefore, disregard what i said earlier

saintB, you're still up next, hope you read this soon :/

Actually, I assumed too that "Rose by a Perfect Circle" is a line. Mind if I take two?
"Don't disturb
The beast"
