The SBP Manifesto

With the HUGE influx of response I've received in less than two days time with my "Speak With Your Heart" collab, inspired by Aerobian-Angel's "Reach for the Stars" collab, an intriguing idea sprang to mind:

Over 20 years ago, a little blue hedgehog with a big attitude and even bigger heart sped across TV & arcade screens around the world. His popularity grew into a franchise of toys, books, movies, soundtracks, 5 animated series and both an American and British comic series, the American of which to date, still holds the Guinness World Record for the longest running comic series based on a video game. He's even branched out into other fields such as genetics with being named after a class of genes involved in fruit fly embryonic development as well as being the first video game character to have a featured Macy's Thanksgivings Day Parade balloon. Needless to say, he's had a major impact the world over. Today, despite his recent track record, Sonic is still loved the world over by generations young, old, new or "True Blue". Although the games of late (with a few exceptions) haven't been the greatest as in days of gamers' past, the one thing that has always remained to stand out was the music.

The first Sonic game to contain lyrics was Sonic CD's "Sonic Boom"/"You Can Do Anything" whereas the first Sonic theme song with lyrics was the ever beloved SatAM theme "Fastest Thing Alive". Since then, Sonic's music library has greatly expanded to include themes for himself as well as the various companions & even enemies he's made along the way, creating an explosive wave of new sound (hence the title) for fans to enjoy and draw new admiration and, most importantly, inspiration from, which brings me to our group manifesto:

We're taking EVERY Sonic theme song ever made with lyrics and collaborating with artists all across deviantArt, Sonic fan or not, to create a piece of work dedicated to whichever lyrical line chosen by each artist. Each collaboration will be hosted by a different artist, and can chose to submit a piece to their own self hosted collab. Our goal is to create a massive musically inspired fanart showcase through this group and open it for all to join and see. No Invitations Required!

The Sonic fandom should be fun for all, so why not open our group for others to submit and join in on what we can add to what has already brought us so much unbridled joy through both play and art. This project is a means of expression and community for music, art and Sonic fans the world over. Who am I to limit those by some arbitrary requirement. The only requirement I ask is to spread whatever fun you have here as you rally together in your admiration for the Blue Blur who's been Moving (& Grooving) With the Quickness since 1991.

Rules & Reg

All rule and guideline updates are made through the group via either the front page and/or the group's blog.

Submission Guidlines

The following are acceptable:
Original Digital drawings
Original Traditional Drawings
Original Sculpture Creations
Original Cosplay Pictures
Original Culinary Creations (Cakes, cookies, etc. but must STILL follow the original guidelines of the collab.)

The following are NOT:
Stolen work (obviously)
Fan characters (Official characters only PLEASE)
In game screen captures
Recreations of original work
Plushie creations

Why the exclusions? This collab is specifically dedicated to interpretations of song lyrics and while there are innumerable ways to interpret songs, for the sake of arguments of legitimacy to an assigned lyric, I'm playing it safe and keeping it simple and giving fans the opportunity to express themselves genuinely as both artists and Sonic fans alike.

The Sonic Boom Project Rules
:cd: All those interested need to put in a request FIRST before hosting a collab. This is to avoid confusion if there are those outside of the project whom are doing the same thing.

:cd: Those whom are hosting, need to link back to the group with the groups's icon acting as a badge within their journal's collab as well as provide us with a link so we can set a directory. This is to act as a deterrent as well as direct those whom want an update on the project.

:cd: Only songs from the playlist can be used for hosting!
If either A) All songs get taken or B) Too much time has passed on certain tracks then I will replace them with the other tracks that are also most popular.

I know you're SUPER eager to get started, but, lets keep this fair alright? Don't go and start a journal when you haven't been confirmed for a song yet. Someone may have already gotten their request in first and its only fair for them to get it.

:cd:One Song Per Host!
Do not ask if you can host another song or if you can take *insert song title here* once yours is done. This is a first come first serve basis. Once you've picked your song you stay with and maintain it. As time passes and if there are tracks still available then I'll make it available to those who've completed or are close to completing their collabs as well as to the general public, still on the same first come first serve basis. You can enter into as many collabs as you can handle but I will not have one person take on five songs but can only focus on one. This is a team effort and every ONE person makes ALL of this possible so don't think that just because you're doing just one that it's not much. You will be recognized for all of your efforts put in.

Despite there no longer being any deadlines, these rules still apply. I've given it a great deal of thought and I've liked how I've set up the initial project, but I no longer need to hound or harrass hosts or contributors to get their work in by a specific deadline. I just want to be able to see this project through to it's fruition, and I hope we can all see that happen together. Now, with all that said:

Let's Do It To It! :w00t:

*ginerly steps around cobwebs, stirring dust in her wake. Uprights the podium, picks up the megaphone and sets it to a lower setting and speak into what seems to be an empty void*

Hey everyone. I hope life has been treating you all very well in the past two years. Whether you know this or not, I do in fact have a life outside of deviantArt and it had taken quite a turbulent turn these past couple of years, what with school work, family, moving out, new job, new degree goals, ect. So it's left me with little time not only for my interests and such, but also for this group I've started. For that I am deeply, truly sorry. I've lost sight of what was important to me and this was a huge undertaking that I did care greatly about...

And, for the record, I still do.

I want nothing more than to see this project through for all generations both old and new, so rather than hurry people along and harrass them with deadlines, I'd like to propose a new undertaking of the group. With that said

*cranks the volume on megaphone*

As of today, May 24, 2014, The SonicBoom Project is now an OPEN group!

*rips off cob webs and flings open even window to clear out the group of old and ring in the new*

What does this mean? Simply put, this group has garnered a great deal of fan art and I think its about time it be shared. I'd rather not let anyone's hard work go unnoticed due to club inactivity or my own negligence. So, rather than subject others to scrutiny, lets open the flood gates for all Sonic fans, but this time, there's gonna be a major change to the regime. Check the manifesto for that whenever you get a chance. This a a huge shift in how things are gonna be run around here, but I believe that it'll be change for the better for all Sonic fans.
