Spring Egguinox - Oodles of Doodles! [March 18th to 29th] Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote



Spring Egguinox - a doodle a day inspired by our new in-game eggs!

When : March 18th to 29th!
What : A new contest every day
Who for : everyone
Who by : Galene, Nemesis and Clotho

In what is now a beloved (almost) yearly tradition, here is a little Doodling to keep you going while waiting for December to come round again, as it continually insists on doing! Every day, a contest will be posted. The posting time will be somewhat variable - typically between 8-9 am game time. Most of the contests will be open for about 24 hours - check the deadline given at the start of each contest thread. Each day, one contest will open, and a previous one will close. There will be a variety of prizes and they won't be pre-announced, although you should assume that eggs will be involved in there somewhere. Or everywhere. Or nowhere. But probably everywhere.

This sticky thread will contain a running summary of events, winners and prizes, as well as any discussion. Each contest will then be posted in a separate non-sticky thread - each one will contain the contest descriptions and should be used for entries only - no discussion or questions. Questions, discussions and squeals of delight should go in this thread.

Each daily contest will be inspired in some way by one of this year's winning Egg Furniture designs.

General rules:
-- Only one entry per player in each day's contest, but you may enter as many different contests as you wish during the event.
-- You must include your pirate name and ocean at the top of your entry post. Make sure you use the pirate and ocean for which you would want to receive a prize.
-- We will try to make the instructions clear for each contest. Just read the instructions and have a go at following them.
-- The entry thread is 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 each contest has closed. We will post the winner and the prize in the following post once judging is complete. At any one time, therefore, there is likely to be one contest open for entries and one contest being judged.
-- Each host will be doing most of the judging, bringing in others as and when they feel is needed. There will be no discussions on the judging of any individual event.
-- We will try to deliver prizes soon after winners are announced.
-- Don't get hung up on the prizes and the need to win. 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!

Go Doodle!

It only took me about five tries to do it after messing up with the colour rule the first four... lol!

I am expecting cuteness overload for this one. :)

Hmm two questions being new to doodling...

1. I didn't see the color Pink in the artPad palate, so I used red with the opacity down to get it close to pink... just to make sure is that alright? (I listed one of the three colors in my entry as Red rather than Pink due to that reason)

2. Does using different levels of opacity with one color count as one or multiple colors?

Thank ye, awesome entries from everyone already!

Edit: Think I may know the answers to both now after looking at other entries. I'll assume I'm safe for now, haha.

That's generally the consensus for doodles. Especially with 24-hour ones like these, OMs don't usually answer questions, and so we're just supposed to interpret best we can and have a go.

 
-- I will try to make the instructions clear for each contest. Unless I make a serious booch, we are not going to be answering questions during the day. Just read the instructions and have a go at following them.


I remember this rule from Apollo but Clotho didn't include it this time around and instead has this:

 
-- We will try to make the instructions clear for each contest. Just read the instructions and have a go at following them.


Which is similar.

Q: For the doodle 3 colors, does light pink and dark pink count as 1 or 2 colors?

"Ahoy, That would be 2 colors! Please do ask these types of questions in the main event thread so others might also benefit with the answers :)
======== From Clotho ======== Actually, it's likely one color! Don't get to wrapped up in the details and give it a go as best you can!

Screenshots are the only way I know how to do it. So I'm curious if there's another method, too.

Look, I went and caught a lizard so I'd have something with scales to decorate, but it ran away again before I could put it in the lizard press.
