Celebrate Penguin Day! [Winners announced!] Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

I was sitting around staring into space thinking about all the exciting discoveries this year, when it suddenly dawned on me: January 20th is Penguin Day! Am I the only one that's smitten by this adorable little creature? I think not!

Some of them hitched a ride on Velasco Thorsson's ship and decided to make our oceans their new home, and we should record this momentous event for posterity with an image of their arrival!

The waddling details:
  • Draw an image depicting the arrival of the penguin (or penguins, up to you), including Velasco Thorsson in the image is optional.
  • You may use any medium, style, scheme or composition, computer-generated, or real-life/scanned-in art, as long as it's your own, original art and created for this event.
  • No larger than 600x600 pixels.
  • Should be in .jpg or .png file format.
  • You may include some words if you wish. This optional text may be in English, Deutsch or Español, and it will not be a main part of the judging process. This additional text may be presented as part of the image or in plain text in the entry post. Keep it brief!
  • You may edit your post while the event is open, but any edits made after the deadline will disqualify the entry.

Deadline

The deadline for this event is 11:59:59pm game time on Friday 20th of January

Prizes:
Prizes will be determined by your entries, but will include penguins (of course!), furniture, and trinkets.

Entry information
  • To post your image on the forum, you will first need to upload it from your computer to a website, either your own or one of the many free file-hosting sites (e.g. flickr.com, photobucket.com). From this site, you can then get the image location as a url, and this can be added to your post in image tags, as shown here.
  • One entry per person. Do not post entries here - entries should be posted in the entry thread:
    Click here for the Entry Thread , then press "Reply to post" (not "Post New Thread"!)

Please include:
  • Pirate name and ocean
  • Your image of the birthday card
  • Your text (optional)
  • Questions, comments and discussions belong in this thread. Only entries should be listed in the entry thread.

Edit: not birthday, arrival!

:O OMGIFLP! (Oh my goodness I flipping love penguins!)

Besides this contest being awesome, it reminded me of when I went to Antarctica! I took a short video on my tiny point and shoot camera. These are some Chinstrap penguins in their natural habitat on Half-Moon Island down by the Antarctic Peninsula in the South Shetland Island chain!

(Also included, the ship we lived on and some other people I went on the expedition with.)

http://img707.imageshack.us/img707/5875/c63z.mp4

Penguins are awesome ;_; and yes some of those penguins were less than a foot away from me! But according to the unofficial rules of Antarctica, you're not allowed to touch them.


I also included just some awesome penguin photos from the trip! I can't help myself they're so cyooooooot ><

Along the same lines, When I think of penguins, I think of this (starting at about the 50 second mark) :P

Also, those pictures are amazing!

When you say any medium, does it include fabric, thread, wool, etc, as long as we ourselves draw what we are going to make?

While I would love to see what you can craft, it would not be participating in the judging unless it's an image.
Any medium means you can use pencils, crayolas, oil, acrylic, watercolor or finger painting, computer generated art, etc. - as long as it's your own original art.

You have to make a 2-d picture using either digital programs or traditional pen and paper/coloured pencils/crayons/markers/that sort of thing.

If you want to go the digital route, there's a lot of programs you could use, Paint is free on Windows computers, for example, but it has a limited usefulness. I used Photoshop and a digital tablet for my entry, but you don't need any fancy tools if you don't have them. Artpad is also a nice program, it's free, online, and a favourite of doodlers, but the site appears to be down.. GIMP is another free program you have to download offline that's earned a lot of good reviews, but I've never personally used it. When you're finished with your image you save it to your computer as a .png, .jpg, or .gif.

If you'd rather draw traditionally you just make the picture using whatever drawing implement you'd like and take a photo of it with a digital camera or scan it onto your computer.

After that you have to do it upload it to a image hosting site like photobucket orimgshack, and copy the direct code for the image after it's done uploading. Then, just paste that in the entry thread, highlight the link and press the "image" button at the top in the format box to make it post as an image. :)

Good luck!

Wasnt the deadline yesterday? o.e


 
"The deadline for this event is 11:59:59pm game time on Friday 20th of January"


12 am game time = 3am in my area, so as long as they submitted it before 3am, thusly before 11:59 pm YPP time it still counts as before the deadline I believe.
