ACDC Angus Young 1 by JuanOsborne ACDC Angus Young 1 by JuanOsborne
ACDC is one of my favorite bands, at least some of his songs will remain in my mind forever. Did you know they have the second highest selling album in history “Back in Black”, behind the Thriller by Michael Jackson. And what can we say about Angus Young… you’re the best man!

For this image I took 156 ACDC lyrics and counted the most used words. As usual the bigger the font is in the image the most it have been used.

The first words of the list: got (329), rock (237), come (235), get (219), gonna (213), want (169), go (155), roll (155), yeah (147), like (133), back (124), love (124), give (116), know (116), ain’t (115), man (114), way (110), make (104), said (95), baby (94), feel (94), take (92), oh (83), can (82), hot (80), night (79), ready (78), time (78), need (77), just (74), jack (72), wanna (70), high (69), one (68), around, (67), good (67), blood (66), dog (64), fire (64), shoot (64), hell (61), turn (61), balls (60), right (60), ’cause (59), live (58), play (58), shake (58), new (57), gun (56), never (56), stand (56), keep (55), look (55), well (55), eyes (54), big (53), woman (52), honey (50), blow (49), gotta (49), shot (48), tonight (46), house (45), blues (44), dirty (44), round (44), bad (42)…

The font used in the spread process is “Squealer” from the band logo.

I tried to transmit the electric rhythm of his songs by adding dynamic movement to the words. As a result the images are very abstract but I like most of my tryouts...

I think you have done a wonderful job here. Text-based Imagery is no tame animal, especially when you don't have a reference photo to work with.
I knew it was tied to AC/DC before I even clicked on the image based on the colors and the stance of your intended character. The guitar neck is awesome!

I really like how energetic this feels since it's not so clean and crisp. Like you said, it was a "tryout" so I wouldn't expect perfection, but I have to say that it is just fine the way it is. I really wouldn't change anything.

Thank you hazelnutx.

To balance character recognition and movement I moved only 20% of words. But I have a strong tendency to abstraction... So I have to be aware of my own instincts... Working with familiar characters is easier, cos people easily recognized.

I have to say that up close it's not as easily recognizable.. But that makes it very interesting. ^^
