Re: December Daily Doodles 2007 - contest thread week 3

Present Plans - contest closed.

The Winners!

Honorable mentions to Domokun, Robinzebec, Trowzers, Oosa, Abalia, Creux, Ardea, Powerfulgalx, Tlzallen, Jolyma, Hempline and Fireangel.
Honorable YARRRs! to Gracely, Greyrat, Kargach and Daynarius.
I'd also like to mention Whedonella's which made me laugh out loud in its silliness.

Today's winners are Jollylady of Viridian and Bullettime of Hunter.

I can satisfy Jollylady's wish, but not Bullettime's, as it'll be Winter Ornament trinkets that they're winning!

Re: December Daily Doodles 2007 - contest thread week 3

December 18 - zomg... must... Doodle...

Contest opens now. Contest closes at midnight in around 24 hours.

This Doodle isn't exactly what I had planned for today. However, for the last several hours, I've had no internet connection, and THE HORROR! Not being able to reach the Doodle thread is astonishingly frustrating. I know that the most dedicated Doodlers among you work hard to get your entries in each day, even when circumstances are conspiring against you. So, as I clicked forlornly and pointlessly on the links, I was planning what I was going to do if I didn't have a connection by the time the next Doodle was due. I did not want mere lack of internet connection to stop me from getting that Doodle out there.

In reflection of that, I would like you to draw me a picture of yourself overcoming untoward circumstances and difficulties to attempt to get your Doodle entries in. Show me the circumstances that are trying to stop you, and also your determination to get that Doodle in no matter what! (When I say a picture of yourself, this need not be a portrait of yourself in real life... it could be your pirate.) The situation can be real-life or fantasy, whatever you choose. You can use hand-drawn art or computer-drawn art, or a hybrid.

Save your picture as .png or .jpg file formats. Host it online, and then include the image, or a link to your image, in your entry post. If the image is 600 x 600 pixels or smaller, you can include the image directly in the post. If it is larger than that, please include a link to the image hosted elsewhere (you can put in a thumbnail of the image if you wish, but it's not essential).

As a reminder, please read the general rules before posting. Start your post with your pirate name and ocean, and then post your image or the link to your image.

Go Doodle!

Re: GORGONYX!!

Phillite, Sage

The problem I am really having time and time again, is missing the deadline by a little, and a lot. How do I get though it? I just say to myself 'Hey! I still did it, and I know I did it! That's what counts!' But I still manage to get frustrated anyway after completing my work.

Tacky photoshop ftw! :D

Re: drip drip drip

Ooooo! I knew exactly what I would draw when I looked at today's doodle...
I may have mentioned it before, but it seems that lately plumbing hates me, and all the cleaning up is seriously cutting into my doodle time :-(
And so, here is my pirate, Trowzers of Sage...

Who knew that, on the day you assigned this doodle I'd get stuck in the forums for hours and have to enter this doodle by hand.

Pirate: Hawkings
Ocean: Viridian



This picture represents what happened to me last year on for the Christmas Day doodle. I was in full panic mode for about 2 hours trying to figure out how to get a picture of my Apollo Doll posted before I remembered my wife's cell phone could take pictures and I could try and email it to myself.

Oh and Apollo introducing me to ArtPad has been an absolute lifesaver in getting computer drawn art in for doodles. I may have changed your life with UGT2007 but you changed mine with ArtPad first. :-D

Silveransom on Sage

The only way I'm going to get all of the Doodles done that I'd like to is to tinker with spacetime and poke into the past. To that end, it's time to fire up the old Skeletal Silverside, complete with oars, and hit the mother of all whirlpools. I might just work up enough speed to whiplash into the past... or at least generate some time dilation so I can get everything done...



http://i35.photobucket.com/albums/d155/SilverwingsArt/YPP%20Drawings/WhirlpoolDoodle.jpg

I did so dearly want to do this in Artpad, but it just couldn't keep up. Photoshop it is, as fast as I could. Even taking this much time was difficult... but fun. :D

Edit: looking back on this a few hours later... it's definitely a doodle. This has quite a trip to make it to what I'd consider a finished piece. ;P

Wow, today's doodle is like a self-fulfilling prophesy. The biggest thing that keeps me from entering many of the doodles is the fact that I can't draw. So how do I draw a picture of not being able to draw?

It's hard to get your doodle turned in on time when you are suddenly transformed into Link and thrown into a dugeon with many levels and one big mean phantom between you and the doodle drop off box.
No, I haven't been playing a lot of Phantom Hourglass, why do you ask



edit: note Sancha's firey red hair peeking out from under the green cap. Or, it would be firey red if I hadn't set all my colors to 50%. hee.
