April Challenge - Nursery Rhymes

Postby pixelgeek » Tue Apr 01, 2008 12:28 am

Give us your best nursery rhyme illustration. If you're feeling particularly ambitious you can even animate it.

Here's some inspiration if you've forgotten all your nursery rhymes :)

Don't be afraid to share ones specific to your location - foreign language ones will work just as well.

One for sorrow, two for mirth, three for a wedding, four for a birth...
I never heard an end to that rhyme that I liked.

Yeah, it's just a still. I'm still scared of those waypoints...

Hey, great magpie evilkillerfiggin, this is one of the best use of width nodes I've see so far :)

Ok, so before I completely forgot to post it, here's my still "cute" and dumb elephant

And the VIDEO here,
And the SOURCE luke.

And the rhyme used:
http://www.mamalisa.com/?t=fs&p=317&c=50 - and there's even an english translation there http://www.mamalisa.com/?t=ef&p=317&c=50 (althought the correct translation should be more like "an elephant was swinging on the web of a spider" than "an elephant stood on the web of a spider" but I guess it was a too long sentence for the song)

you know, there's this ancient Mexica (not Mexican, Mexica [Me-shi-ca] were the first population in the latin american region later known as 'New Spain' and even later, known as Mexico) emperor who was devoted to the poetry, King "Nezahualcoyotl" who wrote one of the most very known poems in the history of Latin America, it goes something like this:

Amo el canto del Zenzontle
Pájaro de cuatrocientas voces
Amo el color del Jade
Y el enervante perfume de las flores
Pero amo más a mi hermano el hombre


It's quite complex writing it as rhyme on english, but the literal translation would be also like this

I Love the sing of the Zenzontle
bird of four hundred voices
I love the color of the Jade
and the flowers is nerve-racking scent
but i love more more my brother, the men
(or mankind, man, humanity)

i don't know if this can be taken as a Nursery Rhyme, but it would be cool, maybe i can give myself a break of the icons (which are quite tricky to do as i want them to be perfect for dark and clear themes alike) since i have no good voice for rhymes and i'm a very shy lass XD (though sometimes i'm quite louder than i should be jiji) i'll look for it already recorded, if not, well, captions are good means anyway.

Hi!
Very cute. I like the spider a lot and also the teenie weenie red bug that crawls from right to left. Sometimes bad color choice regarding the text (like gray text over gray pipe for instance).
Greetz!
