[Doodle]PIratey PI-ku & PIc [Winners Announced] Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote



Winners Announced

What are we doing? Celebrating Pi Day!
How do we play? Piratey Pi-ku & Pic!
Why do we do this? Because you can't bake me a Pie!
When do I have to do this? Before 9:26pm pirate time on Monday, March 14th, 2016

Your task is to write a pirate themed Pi-ku and a draw a sketch to illustrate it. For those not familiar with a Pi-ku, it's a poem similar to a Haiku. The first line should be 3 syllables, the second ONLY 1, and the final line 4 syllables. Since we're pirates, I might accept a few pirate or internet slang words to force syllables. Ex: "cades" instead of "blockades", "morn'" instead of "morning", "1337" instead of "Elite", etc.

Your sketch should reflect the content of your Pi-ku poem. I don't have a preference for how you create the "sketch", but I do encourage you to be mindful of what that word means! I'm not looking for your most exquisite and breathtaking artwork, just a simple sketch. It can be black and white, or colorized, but if you do color it, keep it simple and limit it to just a few colors. You can create it on your computer, or on paper and scan or take a picture.

Possible prizes
* Celebratory things!
* Galene Eggs!
* Maybe even a doll!
* Ships with tan/brown/orange paint!
* Ships with delicious names!
* Anything else I think fits the theme!
* Shiny Sun Points!

The details
* One entry per person.
* The deadline is 9:26pm pirate time on Monday, March 14th, 2016.
* Write a pirate themed Pi-ku. It's just like a Haiku but with 3/1/4 syllables.
* You will need to illustrate your Pi-ku. Image should be a .jpg or .png and no larger than 600 x 600 pixels.
* You'll then need to upload it to a hosting site - either web space of your own, or one of the many file hosting services available, such as flickr.com, photobucket.com, imageshack.com. You then have a url for your image.
* Make sure your image links do not require viewers to register or download anything. Use the "Preview" button before posting your entry, to make sure the image is showing correctly. Remember to press "Reply to this post" instead of "Post new thread"!
* Include your final image as an image in the your entry post using image tags, as shown here
* Shiny Sun Points will be awarded to winners as well as other prizes that I feel fit the theme.
* Post questions AND entries to this same thread.

Your entry post should include:
* Post your entry in this same thread.
* Make sure your entry post includes pirate name and ocean.
* Your Piratey Pi-ku
* Your picture illustrating your Pi-ku, picture in image tags, no larger than 600 x 600 pixels
* Include your favorite in-game color (of those available in shoppes)



Edits:
1) Added permission to use pirate or internet slang to force syllable count.

The first line should be 3 syllables, the second ONLY 1, and the final line 4 syllables. Your sketch should reflect the content of your Pi-ku poem.


You need MOAR COFFEE (sketch is adorbs)

BTW folks, since we're pirates, I might accept a few pirate-speek slang words to force syllables. Ex: "cades" instead of "blockades", "morn'" instead of "morning", etc. I'll edit this into the OP.

Runkeerin - Emerald
Favourite colour: Lavender

Love CI
Why?
Vargas's hair



I got massive giggles scribbling that. His hair is the best.
PS: I wasn't sure if acronyms worked, but I wasn't sure if "Cursed Isles" counts as three or two syllables since the way I say it sounds more like two... but I guess it differs?

Everybody did right-nobody was disqualified! Everybody can't get sun points, I usually try to stick to about half the entrants or fewer there, sorry!

And everybody will get a little prize, I just haven't gotten them out yet. I do promise to have prizes out in a few more hours-my regular shift just ended but I'm staying awake for Luckydip events later, so I've got some time to work on it now!
