Visual Audities has moved!

For those who still follow this blog, thank you for your support. I will not be posting to this Tumblr any longer because Visual Audities is now a group on Deviant Art! Please come by and sign up as a member or a watcher :)


So, I’m not dead, I’m just trying to finish my degree, my website, and my financial dependence on other people. I’m also chasing the right chemical cocktail for the imbalanced chemistry of my brain, medication for my chronic pain, and pursuing happiness (damn that asshole can run, but it’s still in my field of vision).

I’ll be back someday. ♥

Title: Letter Home

Artist: Sophie Leetmaa

Inspiration: Cocteau Twins’ Shallow Then Halo

Artist’s Comments: I scraped away most of the skeleton’s form after I painted the background, which I really enjoy the effect of and I think I may do in the future.  It looks like the song feels, particularly the color, I hope you agree.

Title : Heading South

Artist : Sophie Leetmaa

Inspiration : Desire Lines By Lush

Artist’s Comments : watercolor, red glitter gel pen, salt, ink, digital touch up.  I’m not sure how high up this window is.

Title : How We Quit The Forest

Artist : Sophie Leetmaa

Inspiration : Rasputina’s How We Quit The Forest

Artist’s Comments :

done with a dip pen and reallllly thin microliner.  Looks slightly like the song sounds = success.

Title : Safe As Houses

Artist Sophie Leetmaa

InspirationParenthetical Girls' album Safe As Houses

Artist’s Comments :

this is the tumblr of my dreams!  

even though this piece is full of glaring errors, there’s still something I like about it.  I think it’s because I succeeded in portraying a hint of what Parenthetical Girls sound like- which is exactly how I want to draw.

Title : Stilettos

Artist : Nessa Ninona

Inspiration : Lady Gaga

Artist’s Comments :

I’ve been wanting to draw this for a while :D and I finally found the excuse:
Lady Gaga’s “ALEJANDRO” CONTEST for gagaloo-love
Info: [link]
Yes, it’s Lady Gaga and Valdemar xD
I guess none of you never expected to see Mr.Valdemar wearing high heels xD and even less, doing something with Gaga.
It all comes from a kind of JOKE between my sister *AdaCross and me, involving Lady Gaga, Valdemar and hrdcore X-Rated films. Well, and Cross Marian too.
Better if you don’t know about it, it’s too… bizarre xD and funny, believe me.
This pic, obviously inspired by Alejandro videoclip by Her Majesty Gaga (I love it!)
Hence the stilettos.
A fetish fantasy of mine: seeing Valdemar wearing uniform :)

Title : Tears For Fears

Artist : Emily Nguyen

Inspiration : Tears For Fears

Artist’s Comments :

haaaah my first fanart of Tears for Fears, and it came out not the way i wanted >.<;;; !!! haaah oh well…
well, from left to right it’s Roland Orzabal and Curt Smith in a cartoony style. probably some of you know who tears for fears is (maybe). they’re that band who sang “Everybody Wants to Rule the World,” “Shout,” and “Head Over Heels.” if you guys seen Donnie Darko and are familiar with Gary Jules’ “Mad World,” these two guys originally created that song (Roland for the songwriting, Curt for the vocals) . sadly people around me don’t know that.
haaaah, i’m such a loser for liking 80’s music and being all obsessed.

Title : David Bowie

Artist : Jeremy Baum

Inspiration : David Bowie

Artist’s Comments :

i am currently hooked on Bowie’s album “Station to Station”. a solid album. it’s incredible that he doesn’t even remember recording that album due to him being in the throes of a serious cocaine addiction at that time. my 3 favorite bowie albums would have to be “Station to Station”, “Diamond Dogs” and “Aladdin Sane”.
