  • Mood:

New contest... Either/Or style. I've come up with two concepts, you can make up to two icons, using either one concept for both, or doing one of each.

First concept: Have you ever been given a lyrics challenge but thought another picture went better with the lyrics then one of the band? So for this you must use at least 3 words from either October or Imaginary (Origin version) and it must be on an icon that does not contain a member of Evanescence.

Any textures, brushes, etc are allowed. Please be sure to not submit an icon that was made previous to this contest.
(Full correct lyrics are at the bottom of this post)

Second concept: If you feel like working with pictures of the band, here are five pictures to make icons of.

Any textures, brushes, and blending is allowed. Please be sure to not submit an icon that was made previous to this contest.


Submit up to two icons by Saturday April 15th at midnight. Good luck! Any questions or suggestions, feel free to comment.


Lyrics for first concept

"October"

I can't run anymore,
I fall before you,
Here I am,
I have nothing left,
Though I've tried to forget,
You're all that I am,
Take me home,
I'm through fighting it,
Broken,
Lifeless,
I give up,
You're my only strength,
Without you,
I can't go on,
Anymore,
Ever again.
(chorus)
My only hope,
(All the times I've tried)
My only peace,
(To walk away from you)
My only joy,
My only strength,
(I fall into your abounding grace)
My only power,
My only life,
(And love is where I am)
My only love.

I can't run anymore,
I give myself to you,
I'm sorry,
I'm sorry,
In all my bitterness,
I ignored,
All that's real and true,
All I need is you,
When night falls on me,
I'll not close my eyes,
I'm too alive,
And you're too strong,
I can't lie anymore,
I fall down before you,
I'm sorry,
I'm sorry.

(chorus)

Constantly ignoring,
The pain consuming me,
But this time it's cut too deep,
I'll never stray again.

(chorus repeated twice)

"Imaginary (Origin)"

Swallowed up in the sound of my screaming
Cannot cease for the fear of silent nights
Oh how I long for the deep sleep dreaming
The goddess of imaginary light

In my field of paper flowers
And candy clouds of lullaby
I lie inside myself for hours
And watch my purple sky fly over me

I linger in the doorway
Of alarm clock screaming
Monsters calling my name
Let me stay
Where the wind will whisper to me
Where the raindrops
As they're falling tell a story

If you need to leave the world you live in
Lay your head down and stay awhile
Though you may not remember dreaming
Something waits for you to breathe again

In my field of paper flowers
And candy clouds of lullaby
I lie inside myself for hours
And watch my purple sky fly over me
