Spring Egguinox - Oodles of Doodles! Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

Spring Egguinox - a doodle a day inspired by our new in-game eggs!

When: March 25th to April when I run out of eggs!
What: A new contest every day
Who for: everyone
Who by: Apollo

In what is now a beloved yearly tradition, here is a little Doodling to keep you going while waiting for December to come round again, as it continually insists on doing! Every weekday, I will post a contest. The posting time will be somewhat variable - typically between 9am game time and 2pm game time. Most of the contests will be open for a little over 24 hours - check the deadline given at the start of each contest thread. Each day, one contest will open, and a previous one will close. There will be a variety of prizes and they won't be pre-announced, although I think you should assume that eggs will be involved in there somewhere. Or everywhere. Or nowhere. But probably somewhere.

This sticky thread will contain a running summary of events, winners and prizes, as well as any discussion. Each contest will then be posted in a separate non-sticky thread - each one will contain the contest descriptions and should be used for entries only - no discussion or questions.

Each daily contest will be inspired in some way by one of this year's Egg Furniture designs.

>--------------------<

The general rules for the forum contests are as follows, closely based on those used in the December Daily Doodles.
-- Only one entry per player in each day's contest, but you may enter as many different contests as you wish during the event.
-- You must include your pirate name and ocean at the top of your entry post. Make sure you use the pirate and ocean for which you would want to receive a prize.
-- I will try to make the instructions clear for each contest. Unless I've made a serious booch, I'm not going to be answering questions during the day. Just read the instructions and have a go at following them.
-- The entry thread is going to be busy enough without chat. Keep the entry thread just for entries please!
-- The general rules on avoiding tasteless or offensive material apply at all times on this forum but I'm mentioning them again here just in case.
-- Judging will be completed as soon as possible after the contest has closed, and I always aim to post results within a day of the contest closing. I will post the winner and the prize in the following post once judging is complete. At any one time, therefore, there is likely to be one contest open for entries and one contest being judged.
-- I'll be doing most of the judging, bringing in others as and when I feel I need them. I'm not going to get into discussions on the judging of any individual event.
-- I will try to deliver prizes myself as I announce them.
-- Don't get hung up on the prizes and the need to win. Take part because it looks fun, it's an interesting challenge, and it's an opportunity to share your quick-fire skills with your fellow players!

Go Doodle!

The deadlines for the doodles have to fit round a slightly complex lifestyle at the moment. I'll be posting one doodle a day, between about 9am-2pm - and the deadline for each will be at least 24 hours - I'll probably round up some extra hours to make up for the inconsistency in starting times. So the first one will go up later today - in about 12 hours from now (give or take....)
I'll be posting links for event threads in the second post of this thread; each doodle will have its own thread.

For doodle #1: do the accessories necessarily have to be pirate-themed?

So I created something for the doodle #1. I KNOW I've seen either that style or that design somewhere, so my untalented work is at least inspired by something that someone else did (and if someone remembers what or where, please point it for me?). If it in fact is either entirely or very much like the original, it's not intentional plagiarism. That's all, just wanted to clear that up.

It feels so nice to excessive exercise* your creativity after a day of mind-numbing classes.

Thanks for bringing back the egg doodles Apollo!
