BFOI Y2 - ROUND 3.3 by synodicmeg BFOI Y2 - ROUND 3.3 by synodicmeg

Song used - Seven Nation Army by The White Stripes | Lyrics

Overview of Round 3:
    To those who are unfamiliar with the BFOI OCT tournament, this round for round three the initates were given a special story task to complete, but there was also an artistic challenge, where the entire rounds dialogue had to be in song lyrics. The chosen choice as you can see linked above was Seven Nation Army by The White Stripes. Overall it was an interesting challenge in and of itself, I had a bit more difficulty than I'd like to admit but that was mainly due to my stubbornness when choosing a song. My original song had been Elective Amnesia by Rise Against-- one of my all time favorite bands for those who know me too well ahaha;; -- I had made rough sketches of a whole flash comic before I put it on hold and analysed what to do with it. I'm particularly picky about songs, especially if they have a lot of meaning behind it, and especially since Rise Against is an activist band. Taking a song and just picking the lyrics that fit best made me feel like I was ruining the original message of Elective Amnesia, and as such I left it to dry while I pondered. I was then torn between Fiction by The xx and Little Lion Man by Mumford and Sons later on. It was just luck that Seven Nation Army came up on the radio while I was still on the fence about the other songs, I remembered the song but it didn't occur for me to use it until I listened in to the lyrics. Finding they were more than suitable for what I wanted-- I used the whole song..... I-I-- don't like cutting songs appart ;;;

Comments:
    Akia is more tank than Orrin will ever be jesus christ, she out runs a fire and carries an old man out to safety jeez. My thoughts behind the fiery explosion are some (questionable) physics about fires raging out of control when in enclosed spaces, though keep in mind you do have to have either an abundant amount of Oxygen or other gases to make it explode. Another fun thought, Since Lance (Akia's ninetails) has the ability flash fire, I assumed that he wasn't even effected in the fiery explosion, while Botis (Orrin's sableye) was. P.S. - Akia is a cutie and fun to draw. Two skittish trainers together fighting their fears made for a fun round

    Ah thank you! and ahah I feel bad for the blood in part, but I did want it to fit into the song and still tell a story. I'm sure many initiates wouldn't want to go through with a scare factor challenge like this again ahaah :'D

    Woah how do you fit an action scene with a song so perfectly like this, this is really awesome ;w; I really like that tallish font you used for the song lyrics as well, it fits the creepy atmosphere quite well |D

    synodicmeg Featured By Owner Dec 10, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
    AHhh kjhkjh you are too sweet / o \) Funnily enough the idea for the scene came from later lyrics when I knew I had to make someone bleed, and from there I was easily able to build up what kind of action scene suited the lyrics. But ahhh thank you so much, the font was done by hand which was... interesting to say the least |'D because my handwriting can get really messy so I had to have a steady hand to fix it. 

    I want to also wish you a good luck in PDL! I'm glad I still get to see more of Konn and Mikan xD

    I LITERALLY CANNOT STOP FREAKING OUT. I couldn't have been paired up with a better partner. <33

    You handled Akia beautifully!!! So many details~ Huuu. You showed her reserved and silent side, but also her determined and strong inner shell. There's a lot of character development here. I'm super happy that you enjoyed her!

    I find it kind of ironic how Orrin ends up half-dead in both of our entries. The poor guy. ;___;

    The amount of thought you put into your entry really shines through. I soaked up every bit of it. I can't wait to see your entry next round~ ouo/

    AND I CAN SAY THE SAME FOR YOU--! Your entry was amazing and being paired up with you was awesome aie!

    Im really really glad I was able to show Akia properly, she's amazing and deserves to be shown as such x'D I also wanted to take a step back from Orrin, or generally the older character, being more experienced one and that they sometimes do need a little help. Akia is a champ mang 8'DDD

    and it is isn't it? Ahaha /heart attack and concussion at the end of round 3 he's going to start asking what kind of vacation is this.

    KFJHKJ thank you so much for the support it means a ton, I can't wait to see more of Akia's story unfold as well n o n)~<3

    Orrin doesn't get a break. ;___;
    Akia will probably come check on him... and be really awkward about it. Lol.

    I hope I pass to the next round!!!

    KJFHKJHKJHKJHKJSDF Teni you were the best support, Twitter was the best support it was nice to get feedback from everyone and it kept me motivated eeeeeeeeeehehe <3 and I\m glad I'm not alone in that department I thought I was just being anal. THen again if I used the whole Rise Against song there was like double the lyrics. I'm fortunate enough to have just remembered Seven Nation Army, it was a decent length to draw out and had all the plot points I could work with. 

    Teni remember HC /amggggggg -- goes to look through your old OCT art--
