Doodle: Feeling Hard-Pressed - Art event. Deadline 11:59 pm 25 Nov Game Time! [Winners announced] Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote



Feeling Hard-Pressed

It has been a while since we have had a doodle and autumn seems the perfect time to snuggle up inside and get creative!

Your doodle task is as follows! You need to create a creative sketch incorporating up to five pressed leaves (or as pressed as you can get them given the amount of time you have). You shouldn't draw on the leaves, but your drawing should connect to the leaves (or leaf if you so choose) and be an integral part of the design.

The theme? Thankful Pirates! What are pirates particularly thankful about? I want to see!

The Prizes

Prizes will be flexible, depending on the quantity and quality of entries, but may include:

* Standard Renamed Sloop
* Clothes, trinkets, furniture
* Hera Eggs (so. many. eggs)
* Shiny Sun Points!

Please include the following in your entry (in this thread):
  • Your pirate's name and ocean
  • Link to a photo of the materials with ID card
  • Link to an in-progress picture with ID card
  • Link to the finished picture with ID card
  • Host your images on Imgur . You don't need to make an account--just upload them
  • Double check your entry to make sure you have three working links to each entry, and that it follows the template below.

    Entry Template:
    Pirate Name:
    Ocean:
    Creation Link:
    Creation Link:
    Finished Link:

    Other rules/information
  • Only one entry per player
  • Contest will finish at 11:59 pm 25 November game time
  • Leaves used should be whole. No cutting them down to a preferred shape!
  • Glue can be used to ensure the leaves stay put!
  • All photos must have a card/paper in them with your pirate name written on it.
  • You may edit your post up until the deadline.
  • Have fun creating!

    Bad time for procrastination - we just got 4" of snow and I only collected 1 leaf so far. It might be a very soggy entry but I still have 10 days for a miracle to occur.

    Oh shoot, I forgot that snow means all the leaves are gross.

    C'mmon New England just stay dry for a couple consecutive days- for the good of the doodle.

    I am thankful Puzzle Pirates are not anatomically correct or when our clothes turn into rags, that would certainly be the end of the PG-13 rating (real pirates don't wear underwear.)
    I didn't trim the leaves in any way - besides the normal range of caterpillars, we had a moderate chorus of cicadas and with the second rainiest summer on record, whatever the insects didn't munch, the fungi went to work on. Most trees just gave up and skipped the color business & dropped their leaves early.

    Thank you all for your adorable entries! You always make it so hard to pick winners, but without further ado:

    The winner, getting themselves a fine shiny new vessel called the 'Hard-Pressed Leef' (see what I did there??) is Doggbreath of Cerulean ! I especially liked the use of 'distressed' leafs to reflect the tattered state of rags. Well done! You also get a Hera Egg because everyone loves those (along with Shiny Sun Points)

    Honourable Mention goes to Cattrin of Obsidian ; I think we all can agree that backfiring cannons are no fun at all. A cornucopia and Hera Egg will be finding their way into your inventory (as well as Shiny Sun Points)

    Congraulations! Prizes will be delivered shortly.

    Congratulations to Doggbreath!

    This was a fun one!- it's was quick and enjoyable but the leaves also had to have you think in a different way.

    I am excited for what D(n-)DD will bring!

    o, thanks! with my short attention span I totally forgot until I checked on the December doodles. I love the name too but while the deed is in my pocket, I don't see it ported anywhere.

    Trade the deed to an alt and then back to yourself and you will see it. If you have trouble doing that, petition in and we will assist you!
