Contest Cover pic by Nikolad92

It's Finally here! The Fifth version of my

"Inspired By Music Contest"


For this time I decided to return to the original concept of this contest! More about that later on on this journal.

What can I use for this contest?
Feel free to use anything for this contest
- Drawings, 3D art, Photographs And Much more
Your Imagination sets the limits!

What are I supposed to do in this contest?
I will provide a song list with 40 songs for you to pick and use for you'r picture

That's it?
Nope, After you have entered the main part of the contest you will be able to join the "Wild Card challenge"
And that is the part where I let you totally loose! You can choose ANY song you like in this world!

Anything else I should know?
You may change or update your entries during the duration of the contest.

Hints

- If you feel like the connection to the song and picture/comic is kinda unsure you can always add in the description how you think it fits.
(This might help you score more)

- A very good hint is to NOT base your picture/comic out of something existing.
This will impact the score NEGATIVELY!
(This is the reason of the "Originality" score, If you bases/copying something from something that already exists this will be LOWER!)

Rules!

For the Main contest!
1: No NSFW
2: No copying others work! (This will result in a PERMANENT Disqualification from the contest with NO return!)
3: Comics are allowed up to 6 Frames
4: Your picture/Comic must be publicly uploaded as well having a Downloadable option (The reason for this is for me to download all entries at the end of the contest)
5: Your artwork must have a watermark of some sort
6: You must choose one of the songs from the list below
7: You Can NOT use any kind of remixes or covers for the songs (Must be the song and artist listed below)

Scoring


All the score will be based of the Following
- Effort (How much effort has been put in to this?) 
- Fit to the Song (How well dose this picture fit with the song you choose?)

Alright, I haven't found the time to make something specifically for the Wildcard contest, because I already have a poster that works!

I'm not for things made before the contest start. So I'm sadly enough going to say that I'm not going to accept this entry. I'm sorry but you sill have a good concept though.

Ah, I reasoned that's what would happen. If I had more time then, I would have totally made something specifically for it, but alas I did not. I'm thankful I was able to enter the main contest, and I'm very thankful to you for hosting it :)

So, how does it work when entering the wildcard challange? Do we have to wait for a specific allowance after making the first pic or can we enter the wildcard challange as soon as the first part is finished off?

No worries about being a newbie here! This is probably the second time I have entered into a contest. The first one was held by the fine gentleman that is holding this contest as well. I do hope my entry is better this time around since I learned a thing or two on GMod in the past 2ish days.

I got GMod a while ago (over a year or there abouts) and haven't played around in the Sandbox much until semi recently. Yesterday I was playing around in it a lot and downloading a bunch of addons to use over time for various projects. I am still learning Garry's Mod and I definitely know I don't know everything on it. I'm getting there. :D

Truth is, everyone starts somewhere. I was once a newbie at many things. But over time I got much better. You will as well. I'm sure of it. Clap
