Build an Island - Win a Mirror and Other Trinkets! [Winners Announced]

We want you to get out there and explore this new ocean. For this event, your task is to find any island on the ocean, walk around it some, take some screenshots for reference, and then build a model. You may model any island on Malachite ocean, but you are encouraged to explore beyond the inhabited Lacerta archipelago.

Since you are building an island, we recommend using materials such as dirt, rocks, grass, twigs, and other natural materials, to give it that realistic look. (You can use anything you choose, though, so if you're really itching to make an island out of nothing but paper clips, go for it!)

How to enter:

  • Build a model of an island on Malachite. If the island is inhabited, you must include any buildings that are on it.
  • Take a screencap of the minimap of the island you are modeling. You may also want to take screencaps of specific features that you would see while walking around that island.
  • Create a model of the island. You are encouraged, but not required, to use natural materials.
  • Take at least two photos of your creation - one in-progress and one completed. Include your pirate name somewhere in the photo.
  • Crop and resize all images to be no larger than 600 pixels per side.
  • Host your photos and screenshots online at a site such as imageshack.com
  • Post your entry in this thread. Use the template below to make sure you have everything you need.
  • The deadline for this event is Sunday, June 1 at 11:59PM game time. Entries posted or edited after that time will be disqualified.


Entry Template:
 
Name: <your pirate name here>

Island: <name of the island you modeled>

<link to screenshot(s) of island> (use url tags)

<Photo of finished model> (use img tags)

<links to progress picture(s)> (use url tags)

Preferred prize list (if different from the order listed in the event thread)


Prizes:
  • Green mirror trinket
  • green/black ribbon trinket
  • green rose trinket
  • green/black handkerchief trinket
  • green knobby coral


Have fun. I can't wait to see your entries!

Re: Build an Island - Win a Mirror and Other Trinkets! [Deadline June 1]

Can we make more than one entry?
Obviously I don't think someone can be eligible for more than *one* prize, but can we submit many entries still?

And my $30.00 are gone on materials. Wheee :D
*loves this events*

So, I finally ended my entry :D
Yes you guys posted this just 2 days ago and I was like OMG i have to do it. The island I did is Mu Abtu and I am posting the pics in a sec, I need to resize them.

I have a question too: Does the Mirror trinket comes with another inscribable trinket for stating we won first prize?

No, it's just the uninscribeable mirror.

Re: Build an Island - Win a Mirror and Other Trinkets! [Deadline June 1]

I beg for mirrors to be inscribable then. *goes to GD*


======

So, here it is! After doing some random stuff, and cropping hte images to 600x400 and you know, important stuff, here it is my entry!

Island chosen: Mu Abtu

The materials I used before the transformation. In the picture I didn't showed the rocks because I didn't picked them up by that time, but the rocks are REAL rocks :O amg. I know. LOL.


Me *attmepting to* cut the box: LINK

Me with the island half-way through: LINK

Island half-way through the making with my name on it:
LINK

End result:



So, after some days and the forums down, I show you another creation.

I present you Acanthaster Spits (Fashioned by Artemis :O )

Materials were basically the same of the last one: the clay that was left over, plus some rocks. No biggie.

Step 1: Island's shape and soil. Here.
Step 2: Island's trees and shadows, Here.
Step 3: Island's rocks and snow, Here.

This is the end result:


Prize List:

  • Green mirror trinket
  • Green/black ribbon trinket
  • Green rose trinket
  • Green/black handkerchief trinket
  • Green knobby coral

    Will the lovely ribbon and rose trinkets be inscribed with the winner's name and other relevant information?

    I was very impressed.

    You are inspiring me to give it a shot. I have some ideas but I hope I have the time to go with them.

    Oh, and I think people should see Quitex's in the side by side so you can see how good it really was. Well done!




    I shrunk it down a bit so that it fit side by side better.

    When four pirates get extremely bored... and they have an excessive amount of blue sheets.

    Pirate: Maebelle

    With help from,

    Noeyedblack

    Rosegirl

    Pierrot

    Although the objective was to build an island, we ended up building the lagoon in the middle of the island, kinda D:, despite cyclonic winds.

    Of course, it is clearly recognisable as the job was clearly so well done. However just in case you do not have a lot of knowledge about the topographical strata of the Malachite archipelago system, this is Buyan's Vortice which is in the Komodo archipelago. ^_^

    To fix the tags: Take off all the tags you have right now and just add [img...] and [/img...] (without the dots) and you're set.
    And for the ones you show halfway through, please use [url...] and [/url...] without the dots.

    lol thanks, it took me forever to make those trees.
    had to shape them with my hands and was laying down on my back for the longest time rolling little balls of clay for those clumpy trees :P.
