Hey all! For June, Let’s draw Sherlock’s winning challenge is artworks based on songs!
Ends: July 10th!
-Choose ONE song; we’d prefer you not choose multiples, whole albums, fan mixes, or simply parody music groups. Your piece should be inspired by the song; it could, but doesn’t have to, incorporate lyrics. It could be a single image, series of images, short comic based on the plot of the song, anything.
-Any kind of song is acceptable. It could be Beethoven’s 5th, the Doctor Who theme song, Thrift Shop by Macklemore (HEH), Part of Your World from The Little Mermaid, anything.
-You must include a link to the original song somewhere, either an audio version, a music video on youtube, something. If nothing exists online then say so and give enough information for people to find it.
-Duplicates are fine. If yours is in progress and you see that someone has done the same song, we’ll still accept it. However, if you’re just starting, we’d recommend looking through the tag to see what’s been done, and trying to choose something different. In the past challenge we had many many duplicates, and while we’re still willing to accept them, it would help your piece stand out more if you didn’t choose something ten other people have already done.
-Alternative challenge: you could also choose an album cover and convert it to Sherlock, similar to our Famous Works project. Also the same, you should display the original somewhere in the post, either as part of the text body or as a photo set.
-You can include any pairing, any rating, any version of Sherlock. If your artwork is explicit it’d be appreciated if you could put it under a preview or read more. We’re very flexible on content.
-You can submit art (drawn/painted/etc), graphics/photo manips, cosplay, photography, or crafts. Photo manips should alter at least 50% of the original image to qualify (meaning you can’t just paste a face onto a photo). We’re not accepting fan videos for this challenge, since we feel it’s a bit limiting.
-We aren’t critical of quality! Whether you choose to push yourself and make something elaborate, or only have an hour or so and just want to participate, we love everything we get! Also, don’t put your work down in your comments!
-Please create new art! There is already a lot of work based on music, and while we love seeing it, we feel it’s missing the point of the challenge to accept old works.
-Limit of submissions: max 2.
-How to submit: post it to your blog. Tag it “letsdrawsherlock” within the first five tags. You can also send us your post ID via askbox.
We now have a new affiliate group: Let’s Write Sherlock!!! This is a challenge group exclusively for writers! The challenges will be catered specifically to writers, so you should find them a lot more enjoyable. We at Let’sDraw were having an increasingly difficult time establishing guidelines that comfortably covered both writing and art, so we’re incredibly thankful someone took this up to allow us to focus on visual media. This is a separate group run by a separate team, meaning the challenges will not be the same, but I believe it’s going to be just as much fun! Do feel free to participate in both!
