ROUND #005 CHALLENGE #09: Submission Post [Finals]

ROUND #005 CHALLENGE #09: Finals

There are THREE themes in this final challenge. You must submit one icon for each theme to qualify for this challenge.

The first theme is Sting, an English musician from Wallsend in North Tyneside. Prior to starting his solo career, he was the principal songwriter, lead singer and bassist of the rock band The Police. As a solo musician and member of The Police, Sting has sold over 100 million records, and received over sixteen Grammy Awards for his work, receiving his first Grammy for Best Rock Instrumental Performance in 1981, and receiving an Oscar nomination for best song.

This theme is also MONOCHROMATIC and must contain some type of TEXT [this does not include unreadable, tiny text]. A monochromatic image is an image with one hue. This covers all of the shades of the one hue, including black and white. Your icon cannot contain images other than the one provided in this post. However, you can use stock images, brushes, and textures.

To inspire you, here are some Sting songs for you to listen to while you make your icon!

Desert Rose

The second theme is Dr. Hook, a band formed around Union City, New Jersey in 1969. There the band's earliest incarnation played many small clubs around the 'Transfer Station', an area of bars and restaurants advertising live music.

This theme is also LYRICAL and TEXT ONLY. You must use at least three [3] consecutive words from the following lyrics. You may not use photographic images in this theme.

Freakin' At the Freaker's Ball

Well there's gonna be a freaker's ball (ha ha)
Tonight at the Freaker's Hall
And you know you're invited one and all
Uh oh

Come on baby's grease your lips
Grab your hats and swing your hips
And don't forget to bring your whips
We're going to the freaker's ball (yes)

Blow your whistle, and bang your gong
Roll up something to take along
It feels so good, it must be wrong
We're freakin' at the freaker's ball

Well all the fags and the dykes they're boogie-in' together
The leather freaks are dressed in all kinds of leather
The greatest of the sadists and the masochists too
Screaming please hit me and I'll hit you

The FBI is dancin' with the junkies
All the straights, swingin' with the funkies
Across the floor and up the wall
We're freakin' at the freaker's ball, y'all
We're freakin' at the freaker's ball

Everybody's kissing each other
Brother with sister, son with mother
Smear my body up with butter
And take me to the freaker's ball

Pass that roach please, and pour the wine
I'll kiss yours if you'll kiss mine
I'm gonna boogie 'til I'm cold blind
Freakin' at the freaker's ball

White ones, black ones, yellow ones, red ones
Necrophiliacs looking for dead ones
The greatest of the sadists and the masochists too
Screaming please hit me and I'll hit you

Everybody ballin' in batches
Pyromaniacs strikin' matches
I'm gonna itch me where it scratches
Freakin' at the freaker's ball, y'all
We're freakin' at the freaker's ball

We're at a ball
We're freakin' at the freaker's ball

To inspire you, here are some Dr. Hook songs for you to listen to while you make your icon!

Freakin' At the Freaker's Ball
Sylvia's Mother
You Make My Pants Want To Get Up and Dance

The third theme is Sunrise Avenue, a Finnish rock quintet. Their style varies from hard, dynamic rock songs (e.g. "Forever Yours") to melodic rock ballads like "Heal Me".
This theme is TEXTLESS, and you must also find your own image. To help you identify the band, a gallery can be found here.
