Music Connection by cindywoo Music Connection by cindywoo
This was my 3rd-place winning entry for the "Out of your Comfort Zone" contest at :iconcrphotomanipulation: :happybounce:
Contest Results: Out of your Comfort ZoneThe results
The time has come - here are the results of our awesome contest! 

Thanks so much for participating - we received 34 (!) of fantastic entries. We're especially blown away by how many of you decided to create a photomanip despite it not being your primary medium - did you enjoy the experience? Are going to work on more photomanipulations? :D
To put more pressure on the theme of the contest, we decided to judge the entries in two categories:
Going outside the comfort zone - is this piece different than other works in the artist's gallery? Did they try something new, something they didn't do before?
Everything else - meaning technical skill, composition, concept and overall impact of the piece. 
The points from category 1. were counted as 100% of their value, and the points from category 2. as 80% of their value. 
Time for the winners!


This contest was about getting out of your comfort zone, and trying something new.
I absolutely love the idea for this contest, as I love challenging myself and trying new things.
This was my first time making something abstract, I was most definitely out of my comfort zone but had a lot of fun with this one :)

About this work
I have always felt a strong connection to music. Good music has helped me through difficult times in my life, and added happiness to the happiest times of my life. This is my first work I've made that I feel really expresses the connection I feel to it - that combined with trying something completely new made this one of the most satisfying things I've created in a while.

WELL DONE - CONGRATS but most of all its good to read that YOU think its good. I personally like the linear pathways, offering many journeys inside and outside the main focus. I find the blues almost gentle and calming but the hears make me think of power, regeneration, tireless effort and creative flow of energy. 
Does the heart love music ???  You bet it does, every soul loves music and the passion it evokes. 

This is beauty......sublime

Music is love, music is life :icongreenheartplz:. Lol, you'll probably get tired of me saying that XD. I know this wasn't the intention, but I see chakra lines and points in this piece, most noticeably the Crown and Heart Chakras. I believe (I could be wrong), that the Crown Chakra helps you connect with your subconscious mind (when balanced) or possibly a higher level of awareness (again I'm not sure, haven't researched in a long time). I think the Heart Chakra deals with compassion and empathy, but again, I'm unsure. Regardless, I find that interesting that this deals with music since it can bring forth empathy and awareness in a person with the right notes and lyrics. Of course, this is all just coming from my odd imagination, but still intriguing none the less. I just now noticed the universe like color the figure has, lovely :). Nice abstract shapes sprinkled throughout the piece too. Fantastic job dude :D!

Interesting! I don't know much about chakras myself, but they're something I've been wanting to learn more about. And thank you for the kind words :)

There is info on Chakra all over the place. The problem is which one gives the most accurate information ^^;. That, I'm unsure of. Still, I hope you find your research enjoyable and informative. You are most welcome :hug:.
