Lunar New Year Doodle: Monkey Business! [Winners Announced!] Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote


Winners Announcement!


What are we doing? Celebrating the Year of the Monkey!
How do we play? Create your own diorama of monkeys being piratey at work, home or play! For information on how to build a diorama, check out: http://www.wikihow.com/Make-a-Diorama
Why do we do this? Because we can!
When do I have to do this? 11:59 PM Tuesday, February 9th 2016

The prizes
* Things monkeys might use!
* Things monkeys like!
* Ooo Ooo AAH AAH AAH!
* Celebratory things!
* A ship with a monkey related name!
* Portraits! Probably with monkeys!
* Shiny Sun Points!
As I have done previously (we all know I stole this from Apollo by now, right?), I'm keeping prizes flexible, depending on the quantity and quality of entries. Ready to start monkeying around? Here's more information:

The details
* You have lots of time for this one, so we expect FABULOUS entries. Be sure you understand what a modern diorama is. We're going for something like this: http://www.wikihow.com/Make-a-Diorama
* One entry per person.
* Your entry should be both monkey themed and pirate themed.
* You can use premade figures and items in your diorama, but it should be individual pieces and not a premade set. That means don't run out and buy the latest pirate monkey Lego building set and set it up in a shoebox, but if little monkey captain from the set makes its way onboard the potato sloop you made for your diorama, that's perfectly fine!
* Take pictures of the building process! Make sure you include a piece of paper or something similar with your pirate name and ocean in each picture. We'll need at least three pictures (beginning, middle, and finished product) linked in your entry. The finished product can be shard in the post as an image, but just link to the other two.
* These should be three dimensional. Collages won't count!
* No live animals should be harmed in the making of this project. If you try to stuff a monkey in a box, you are an animal and the monkey will likely harm you. It's a bad idea!
* Post should include the following: Your pirate name, your ocean (this is where prizes will be delivered!), the links to your building process pictures which include your piece of paper with your name and ocean on them, an image of the final project, and a description of what is going on in your diorama. This is not a time for brevity! Make sure we don't miss any of the finer details!
* Dialog, chat bubbles, text and similar should be avoided unless absolutely necessary. That means: It's fine to put up a sign with a shoppe's name, but let your work tell the story!
* Any questions? Be sure to ask! There's time!

Description :
In this diorama the monkeys are on a pirate expedition looking for treasure and suddenly the evening I begin the sea to stir into great swirls and deep a terrifying sounds which a storm warned could hear, it seemed that the sky opened and emitia fireballs and the crew began to flee the ship as it was close to an island, leaving only the captain on the ship and said, I'll sink my boat.

Faeree of Cerulean

Monkey Madness!
So Eurydice decided to bring over all of her monkey familiars (and maybe a few others) and surprise Endymion while he slept (because, you know, he's always sleeping!). The song that declares "No More Monkeys Jumping on the Bed!" means nothing to Eurydice! The more jumping the merrier!

Materials So, the dolls and two monkeys were already made by me for a previous contest.. wasn't sure who I was going to use for the final.

Progress [1 ] [2 ] [Delay of Progress because, you know, cats and boxes... ]

Finals (1 for each monkey! erm, but none by themselves!) [1 ] [2 ] [3 ] [4 ] [5 ] [6 ] [7 ] [8 ] [9 ]
(or the link to the album )





And I can spell.. I just forgot how to on my name tag :P

Hazelight, Emerald

Description:
The Monkey crew of 4, "Going bananas for bananas", is again out on its yearly expedition-sail and hunt for new banana territory to conquer!

On their faithful banana-sloop, one monkey can be seen hard at work navigating the seas, another leaping off the crows nest after a full night shift, one trying to escape its chores through a small boat, and the last leaning lazingly across the sloop rails.

Beware of them; for you might go bananas of them going bananas for bananas.

Process 1

Process 2

Final Angle 1

Hazelight.

Ye told Gaea, "If you see bird flu, you are normal. If you see swine flu, you need to check your mental health."
Gaea tells ye, "HA."
Ye told Gaea, "I'm right ain't I :P"

Wayfarer, Meridian

Battling monkey boats is fun, but some monkeys want a break from the cutthroat world of pillaging. Instead of plundering fruit from unsuspecting pirates, they sail to uninhabited islands and forage!
In my diorama, I've captured one of their foraging expeditions.



The very beginning: http://imgur.com/F4cxxzD

Palm tree factory: http://i.imgur.com/35kVJIR.jpg

The meaning behind the name of the ship (if you aren't familiar with girl scout cookies, I'm so very sorry): http://i.imgur.com/YDqj1Fj.jpg

Finished with name: http://imgur.com/ct6i5AR

Fun fact: the shoebox I crafted this in? Sperrys. The tagline on the box? "A Passion for the Sea!" Yarrr.
