Umm... Do you have a permit for that? (WINNERS POSTED!) Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

A little art contest for no particular reason!

Upon wandering about Viridian...
 
PirateA tells you, "Excuse me, but you're standing in my spot on the dock."
Dexla tells PirateA, "Oh? I'm sorry. I didn't realize..."
PirateA tells you, "Yes. I have a permit from the governor of this island (see?) to stand here every day between the hours of 3 to 6 pm."

So I hop on over to the noticeboard to apply for a job to CI. And I wait. And I wait some more.
 
CInavver tells you, "I'm sorry, you don't have the proper papers to be hired for my CI trip. You'll have to go to the main office and fill out form 3265422943-A in triplicate, then return here with the authorized yellow copy and..."

Oh, never mind then. I'll just go out on a pillage. As I watch the navver bump into rocks and take shots from the brigands broadside...
 
Dexla tells Navver, "Do you have a license to navigate this ship?"


So, I was wondering, do YOU have the proper permit to walk that alligator in public? Or a special license to claim guns upon boarding a ship? Don't get me started on bilge stations during blockades.

DRAW A PERMIT, LICENSE, OR SOME OTHER OFFICIAL LOOKING DOCUMENT, which grants you the permission to do whatever it is you wish to do in game! I'm looking for a lot of humour, exceptional graphic design, and a relationship to something YPP related... after all, this needs to look OFFICIAL enough to fool the officials!

da rulz:
- Original artwork only! With the exception of fonts, all of it should be drawn and created by you. This includes self-portraits if your official document requires one. No screenies or borrowed thingies from the internet!
- One entry per person.
- General forum rules apply. Language and subject matter should be suitable for forums.
- Images should be uploaded and hosted by a photo-hosting site of your choice and included in your entry post using image tags. How to post an image.
- Images should be no larger than 600 x 600 pixels in jpg or png format. No animated gifs. That's not very realistic, now is it. If necessary, you can include a link to a larger image.
- You may draw your permit/license/document in any medium you wish. Computer or hand-drawn is fine.
- Entries must be in English, or have a full translation included with your posted image.
- Entrants from other oceans are welcomed to enter, but I will only be providing prizes ON VIRIDIAN.

DEADLINE: 12:00 NOON game time Feb 6, 2012.
ENTRY THREAD LINK
Entries posted in any place other than that thread will be be ignored.
REMEMBER TO INCLUDE YOUR PIRATE NAME AND OCEAN WITH YOUR ENTRY!

PRIZES! YAY Prizes!
1st place: an Official Permit (renamed sloop!) and a license to operate it (a wrapped officer badge).
2nd place: an unnamed pet pig and a permit to forage for truffles (a wrapped labour badge)
3rd place: a drinking table and proof that you are of legal pirate age to consume rum (a wrapped parlor badge)

Any questions? Please post in this thread! Most of all... HAVE FUN!

LOL! I just posted it last night Music and began spamming it advertising with small, but lucrative tournaments, this morning O.o

I debated posting in Global events (since it's open to all!) but I'm cutting the OMs some slack by doing my own prize deliveries this time and that's where I got lazy and decided to only post it "in the appropriate ocean forum". I suppose I could/should go post it in Malachite Events too though... done!

It was also a quickie last minute idea because it's too quiet and I can't wait until.... nevermind....

Tell your friends! And then get drawing!

Are we allowed to put the puzzle pirates logo in the license by copy and pasting from the internet? It'd technically a font...

The OFFICIAL officials, of course! I'm sure they'll show you their official badge as proof...

Technically a logo is considered art, even if it includes type. And since it's not created by you, then it's not considered original art, and would fall under the "No screenies or borrowed thingies from the internet!" rule. If you take your best shot at recreating it, then I WOULD approve of that!

Without further delay, I have official results!!

1st through 3rd place winners will each receive a very official looking badge (rimmed star pin trinkets) to granting them permission to perform the tasks which they specified in their entries!

1st place: Capearl wins the "Official Permit" (renamed sloop!) and a license to operate it (a wrapped officer badge). The ship may have had a few little upgrades made to it while it was waiting at port ;)

2nd place: Etiquette wins an unnamed pet pig and a permit to forage for truffles (a wrapped labour badge)

3rd place: Blakbead wins a drinking table and proof that you are of legal pirate age to consume rum (a wrapped parlor badge)

The following honorable mentions will receive the proper documents (scroll trinkets) to officially grant them permission to perform the tasks which they specified in their entries:
Marisopel-East
Mrodd
Sopitass
Superluki

I'll be stalking looking for you to deliver your prizes, but it would help if you did the same--- feel free to poke me if I don't spot you first! I'm usually on in the evenings after 6pm game time for a couple of hours. If that time is not convenient, shoot me a PM and we can make arrangements!

Many thanks to everyone who entered! Most importantly, I hope you officially had fun!
