December Not-Daily Doodles 2013! Reply to this Post

December Not-Daily Doodles

When: December
What: a holiday-themed month of fun and frolics, a new contest twice a week for a month
Who for: everyone
Who by: Apollo

The Doodles are running this year as they did last year. I'm not able to run daily doodles, but we're going with two doodles a week again for the month. But, Doodles! Yay! I'll also be giving out Shiny Sun Points for them!

So, here we go. Twice a week - once on Sunday and once on Wednesday, a creative contest will be posted. Most of these contests will be forum-based and will require entries before the next event is posted. The contests will be posted close to midnight at the beginning of each contest day, and will close 3-4 days later (Sunday contests will close at the end of Tuesday, Wednesday contests will close at the end of Saturday). There will be a variety of prizes during the month and they won't be pre-announced. Most Doodle winners will receive a flower trinket. I will also be giving out Shiny Sun Points. And what do Shiny Sun Points make? PRIZES!

There will be multiple forum threads for this event. This sticky thread will contain a running summary of events, winners and prizes. Each doodle will then have its own entry thread.

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

The general rules for the forum contests are as follows.
-- Only one entry per player in each contest, but you may enter as many different contests as you wish during the month.
-- In earlier years, we tended to have Dedicated Doodler prizes for those who completed all Doodles during the month. As this is a lesser achievement with only two doodles a week, we will have to see how entries go this year to decide whether or not to do this. We'll do something for Dedicated Doodlers, but it may be something a little different e.g. a prize draw between Dedicated Doodlers rather than a prize for each? We'll see how many of you there are!
-- You must include your pirate name and ocean at the top of each 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. As the contests are short, don't get too hung up on the minutiae of rules. Just read the instructions and have a go at following them.
-- If I say "draw", I generally mean the creation of a 2D picture, whether that's done by hand or by computer. Where more physical media are allowed, I'll remember to say so.
-- If I say "original" or "must be your own work", I mean that you must create something from scratch, without the use of game art or other resources.
-- Plagiarism: this is the use of someone else's work, claiming it as your own, and applies to all contest types. Don't do it!
-- The entry threads are 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 usually within a day of the contest closing. Winners and prizes will be posted in the second post of this thread once judging is complete, as well as a more detailed results post at the end of each Doodle's entry thread. At any one time, therefore, there is likely to be one contest open for entries and one contest being judged.
-- I will be doing most of the judging, bringing in others as and when I need them. There will be a variety of events, though, and I am not going to get into discussions on the judging on any individual event.
-- I will try to deliver prizes as they are announced.
-- Don't get hung up on the prizes and the winners. Lots of people participate, and only a few win prizes. 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 or to try your hand and something different.

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

That's it for now. Look for the first Doodle just after midnight PST tonight!

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

If you're interested in how the Doodles work, take a look at one of the previous year's editions, linked from this page. The main difference to earlier years is that we're just doing the two contests per week this year, same as last year.

Investigate finding the following:
  • a microphone
  • a digital camera or scanner
  • a link to Artpad (http://artpad.art.com/artpad/painter/)
  • a drawing / art / paint package that you're comfortable with
  • Oh, and don't throw out stuff that you think might be useful for a craft project, because you NEVER KNOW!

    Thanks for keeping that rythm, it's much more relaxing to have more than an evening to complete a task.

    Um yes, I believe we discussed this in another event...drawing with mice are for those that don't have a tablet yet and haven't seen the light yet, or masochists!!! :p (I believe you fell in the second category ^_^) <3

    My entry took me over 6 hours to draw...where I am certain I could've done it in 1 or 2 with a tablet...probably less!!! (too bad my tablet is way too sensitive for art pad :( or I would've saved myself from all the pain.... /e slinks back to a photoshop art project to lick her wounds )

    Do you have a perfectly functional drawing tablet? If yes, then yes you are, if no then no you're not and I highly recommend you get yourself a good drawing tablet :)

    Really. I started with a Who theme. This is where a brain trying to deal with Evil Government Spin mixed with corporate political idiocy from higher-ups goes. We're overthrowing them again on Wednesday though, so no worries.

    Nice scarf, Apollo. I hope it's not the one from the Day of, that was knitted ALL WRONG. AAARGH.
