[Missing!!!OM's] Immediate action required [Winners announced & Prizes delivered] Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote


It has come to my attention that both Gaea and Poseidon have gone missing ...if you are like me you have refreshed the Mariners Muse forums almost hourly to see whether they have responded to the Dolls galore event But to no avail!!! Thus I am calling this a state of emergency!!! Both the land and sea Om's have gone missing...and as Pirates we need them both to be found!!!

It is your job to create a 3D-Diorama of what happened to them and where they are.. were they kidnapped...or eaten by sea monsters...are they sitting chained in a dungeon...or...or...who knows? This event is to discover what happened to them!!! Why have no one seen them>??? Where have they gone?

NOTE: the diorama isn't just a sculpture of your chosen OM it NEEDS to be set in a theme!!!

* Rules
- General forum rules apply
- Entry must include a list of materials used, at least 2 in-progress photos, and your final masterpiece Include also a picture of your finished art with a name card that has your Name; Ocean; 2013 on it
- Original work only! Cannot replicate an existing piece of art. If you are using references from an original source, please link the image along with your in-progress photos.
- Maximum image size is 600 x 600 pixels, saved in either .png or .jpeg format (inserting image is preferred over linking the image)
- Any medium of art is acceptable (ex. Includes sculpting, forming mosaics, clay, sewing, beeswax, your moms flowers...but alas please refrain from using pets as they tend to destroy any accessories you may add to them)
- Diorama must create a "scene" not just be a sculpture of the OM (the background can be computer generated and printed/drawn/painted/smeared with dirt...but your diorama must be placed inside it)
- You can only enter ONCE for each OM (Gaea/Poseidon)


*Entry Guidelines *
post in entry thread relevant to each OM (Gaea/poseidon)
 

Category: Gaea or Poseidon
Name:
Ocean:
Short description of what is happening to the OM - where did they go missing...a brief description of your diorama
Title:
Material List :
Progress Photos: (at least 2)
Final Masterpiece: (picture no larger than 600 by 600 pixels)

Things that will be judged on: Effort, creativity, originality, theme, aesthetics

Gaea Entry thread
Poseidon Entry thread

there will be two categories of prizes, one for each Om featured: (Gaea and Poseidon)
 
1st Place : renamed dhow + Thalia egg + inscribed trinket
Gaea : Dhow: Missing Paradise fish + Thalias egg + inscribed trinket
Poseidon : Dhow: Missing Pearlfish + Thalia's egg + inscribed trinket

2nd Place: renamed Sloop + winning egg + inscribed trinket
Gaea: Sloop: Cruel Earth eater + Fearees egg + inscribed trinket
Poseidon: Sloop: Scheming Sea poacher + Seleens egg + inscribed trinket

3rd Place: "themed" Furniture set and easter egg + inscribed trinket (one for each Gaea and Poseidon)

This event will close on Friday May 17th at 11:59pm Game time Any entries added or edited after this time will be disqualified.

This event is open to ALL OCEANS however your written description of your diorama must be in English to be judged.

So start searching and lets find these missing Ocean masters!!!

EDIT: As extra incentive to help us find the missing OM's The lovely Muse Thalia has offered two of her eggs to the ones who can solve this mystery!!! [prize lists updated to reflect this]

EDIT: extended the deadline by 7 days due to some real life interference! Fear not this is actually a good thing ~.^

I don't think that they are limited, but I wouldn't keep them too big.

no they don't, however if you resize them they wont break my computer or internet trying to open them ^_^ But i wont DQ based on the size of the progress shots...Just make sure the one you post as a image in the entry page is the right size
(whenever I make a large project for entries I usually have a link to "larger image" of the final product; in case people want to see more details, this is fine and even encouraged :D

Hi! Do they have to be two different scenes if I do two entries?

yes each scene/entry has to be a separate creation. ex. You cant just make a "doll" for each Om and use the same scene (hope that makes sense).

And a question that was asked earlier, yes you can have TWO FINAL entries, ONE for EACH separate OM :)

Some questions that were PM'd that I thought others may want the answers for:

 
The OMs in the actual scene, do they have to be 'sculpted' - will it DQ me if not? For example, can I just draw them on a piece of a paper, cut that out and place in the scene?

They do NOT have to sculpted per se; however I am looking for a 3-D object of some sort. As for a "paper doll" I suppose it will be acceptable if its fitting to the scene, and the whole scene still gives a 3-D effect (hope that makes sense) (I'm not just looking for a painted/drawn image..)


 
Do the OMs need to actually look like the 'real' ones? For example, can the clothes be different - will it score lower?

As long as I can see that it is Gaea and Poseidon I am not particular on what they are wearing...

 
Can I use actual objects in it? For example, can I take an existing real world doll, dress it up and things and put it to pose as an OM?

This is a tricky one...I want you to CREATE the OM's and the theme - that being said using real objects like sticks and stones or buttons are acceptable. But I would have to say no to simply dressing a pre-bought doll...

 
Can the final shot of the finished work be cropped so that no background of the real world is shown - the diorama fills the picture entirely, that is?
Yes you can crop the image, as long as I can see the name card and progress shots the final image is free to be cropped to make it look its best ^_^

Can I just say that this is a fun event ^^

Here's a question: explaining what's going on in the images we post is optional, right? I assume the answer is yes but my brain went on an early vacation few weeks ago...
