Blue-grey skies, must be witchcraft! - Winners announced Reply to this Post

Blue-grey skies, must be witchcraft!

Blue-Grey clouds 'n spring showers are coverin' the seas. Pirates all over scratch their heads and wonder what this could mean...

Some pirates at the inn whispered that Hera tried to paint the skies in purple; while others thought that Cronus was trying out a new recipe -don't ask what he was cooking! - I believe this was caused by Nemesis herself when she tried to force the oceans to join #TeamEvil

I need your help figuring this out! Use your detective skills and find out what caused our skies to turn blue-grey and report back to me as soon as possible! Because there are spies everywhere, your report must be one single image.

What to do!
* Create a drawing depicting your (imaginary) discovery. This is a drawing showing what exactly caused the skies to turn blue-grey
* Post a completed image of your creation (maximum size 600 x 600) in this thread.
* Make sure to include your pirate's name and ocean


How?
* You may use pencils, crayons, finger paint, digital art or any media of your choice as long as the result is a 2D image.
* If you're creating a real-life picture, you need to take a picture of it to get a .jpg or .png on your computer.
* If you're using a graphics program to create your picture, again you need to save as .jpg or .png.
* Host your images online at a site that doesn't require login such as imgur, imageshack or photobucket
* If you cannot post an image, please post a link to your image - make sure that it is open for all to view, and doesn't require a login.
* You may edit your post up until the deadline.


The Prizes
Other than bragging rights, winning entries will receive a beautiful blue-grey flower trinket, and Shiny Sun Points!


Other rules/information
* Art work should be original - no plagiarism please!
* Only one entry per player
* Contest will finish 11.59pm April 12th game time
* You may edit your post up until the deadline.

Bisca of Obsidian.



The evil Cronus has denied Hera her (very poorly drawn) Peacock.
Her tears are filling up the skies and change the colors permanently.

Well, it might be my fault, kinda, sorta. Traffic around the port was horrendous last month and I didn't get home in time to feed my octopus. I know I shouldn't leave my alchemistry projects out, but who knew this would happen? Apparently quicksilver and cephalopods don't mix. Oops. Before I could stop him, he was out the window contaminating everything he came in contact with...



Sorry?

Oooh, can I enter? Pretty sure my potty mouth at winning yet another pair of striped pants* had something to do with it....

*I'm cursed. That or Nemesis and Cronus have struck a deal with the devs to only give me striped pants :( :( :(

Who would have guessed it? It was Cronus with his stupid pet idea!

DRUUUUM ROOOLL! It was terribly hard to decide! In addition to great imagination and skill, all entries made me laugh out loud :)

Without further ado - the winner for this hilarious doodle, who gets shiny sun points, the most beautiful bunch of blue-grey roses and a blue-grey chroma (stolen borrowed from Hera) is ....
Bisca on Obsidian !

Two runners up, who get shiny sun points (equally sparkly), and a gorgeous rose trinket in blue-grey are Dexla of Cerulean and Herowena of Cerulean.

Special mention to Hera, who wins a pair of stripey knickers!

Everyone else who participated (except Hera) received a blue-grey daisy for making me laugh!

Not even top 3? Damn, it took me so much work :-(
If anyone was curious the sand letters spelled "pet rock", the items were a cracked Hera egg (Hera), a green bone (Greenbones the artist) and a spoon (Forculus) - all victims of Cronus and his pet rock idea. At least the peacock knows what exactly happened.

Congratulations to the winners!

Congrats Bisca, Dexla and Herowena!

Loved seeing what people came up with!

All I could think of was this scene from Sleeping Beauty.



And thanks for the flower on Emerald Clotho <3, I've been sick for weeks and I've become so absent minded about stuff.
