Celebrate Valentine with Pinkfoot the Love Yeti! [Winners announced!] Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote



What are we doing? Celebrating Valentine's Day with Pinkfoot the Love Yeti!
How do we play? Create a comic strip using Pinkfoot the Love Yeti as one of the characters and Valentine as theme. It should also have a piratey feel.
Why do we do this? Because Pinkfoot is cute!
When do I have to do this? 10 AM Monday, February 15th 2016

The prizes
* Pink things!
* Things yetis might like! Maybe even yetis!
* Lovey-dovey things!
* Celebratory things!
* A ship with a pink related name!
* Portraits! Probably with yetis!
* Shiny Sun Points!
As we have done previously, I'm keeping prizes flexible, depending on the quantity and quality of entries. Ready to start? Here's more information:

The details
* Create a comic strip using Pinkfoot the Love Yeti as one of the characters, He could be a main character or just standing in the sidelines - your choice!
* It can be hand-drawn and scanned or computer generated.
* Host this comic strip somewhere (imageshack, photobucket, etc.).
* Post a link to your creation in this same thread before 10 AM Monday, February 15th. If the comic is less than 700 pixels wide, feel free to post the image directly.
* Please include your pirate name and ocean in your entry post.

Other stuff:
* The most important aspect of the comic is humor.
* Please keep your comic below 8 panels since we're not looking for a graphic novel. You can use any medium you wish provided the final product is comic-like.
* Things to check: Is it formatted like a typical comic strip strip? Single-panel comics like "Far Side" are fine. Could it be placed in the comic section of the Sunday paper?
* Standard YPP rules regardling language and content apply. If you say something in your comic that you cannot say in game, your entry will be disqualified.
* Any questions? Be sure to ask!

I have a great idea (at least I think it's great), but I can't draw for my life...

This means that while nicely drawn comics are a plus, it is a very small aspect of what will be considered when judging :)

It wouldn't be funny if I had to explain who's pictured ;)

Nah, I was going to suggest that Clotho was spying on you and decided she'd better post some results quick before you break the forums hitting the reload button. <3

Congratulations! :)

I had a lot of trouble choosing winners for this contest, it was very close! In the end I had to nitpick so we could keep the winners' numbers commesurate with the total number of entries :(

last night neither of our images would load (the small version in your post, the link to your larger one, and the link to mine) and I was wondering if it was like that during judging. I realize judging is subjective and my sense of humor often seems strange to others but if postimage is unreliable I will go back to sloooow photobucket

If the image is not too large and if the contest type allows, I'd show the image in the post instead.

To clarify: links/images did not have any bearing during judging in this event, that was based mostly on the awww factor (yes, I confess: extra points were awarded depending on the length of the awww while reading them *hangs head in shame*).

thanks for the answers - as I said before we know when we enter that judging will be subjective and I can accept that. my image was far bigger than the specified limit - too much text and not enough awwww I guess
