Entry for this week's contest. Song is "Go" by Lemaitre


The green is a play on the title, as are the arrows, although the gradient on them represents the way the song "ramps up".  The splotchy rounded rectangles in the back are representative of the "base" of the song (I don't know music terms worth anything, so bare with me).  The lines at the bottom are representative of the boops and such, particularly their sharpness.  They're also reminiscent of fire, referencing some of the lyrics.  I also shaped some of the blotches into a sort of billowing smoke to make the fire motif more blatant.  The grids were inspired by the synth and the dither circle... things are the drums.  Finally, the broken infinity is symbolic of impermanency, which I believe to be a theme of the song.

Arrows are fine (unless we talking about archery arrows).

Quit the whining dude, and focus on give some work feed, not just a troll-complain. This thing..just looks weird. I cant even see more than 2 colors, is pretty cool. For the sake of argument, i think that the arrow shouldnt be there, besides the challenge rules, but because drags me from the first impression of the painting

And this is why pixeljoint ought never to have an abstract art challenge again. People get too worked up about what's abstract and what's not and it's just such a huge mess that distracts people from actually focusing on the pixeling itself.

Sorry to say that, but this isn't abstract. there's an arrow and that's figurative. Sorry =/
