[Contest] Create an avatar for Apollo Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

Results posted! Click here. Thank you all for the excellent entries.

If you have a few spare minutes, the gap under my name is in dire need of filling, and if there is an avatar artist out there willing to create an avatar to fill it, I'd be very grateful.

By a happy coincidence, I have some sleeping animals who each need a good home, and a couple of nice trinkets.

Each of the three pirates who create my favorite three entries will be offered their choice of a sleeping pig, a sleeping piglet, a sleeping tortoise, an Apollo doll with worshipful comment, a mirror or a nautilus shell. Prizes can be awarded on any ocean.

Maximum size is 150 x 150.

Submit your entries in this thread please. The deadline is 11:59pm PST Sunday 13th November. Include your pirate name and ocean.

If you want it, this is a portrait as a guide to my normal appearance in the game. The roses should not be considered an essential ingredient. ;) You can use this appearance, or go in a more mythological direction, as you prefer.


My personal preference is not to have animation in avatars, unless it's very subtle.

Thank you, and I look forward to seeing them!

More people will be attracted, mate. And no avatars, yet.
I'll keep quiet so this thread doesn't get flooded.
I also suggest we keep quiet unless we submit an entry.

Again mate, it seems to me like the suggestion here is your own work, as apposed to pulling some random files off the google search.

If OM's started handing out dolls for relevant picture spam, the Shore Leaver's would be mini-OM ridden.

Here are the entries for Carribean on Midnight



A couple people have asked me if that is Cnossos in the background. It is actually Delphi on both avs. Apollo always consulted the Oracle at Delphi ; )

** I should have automatically put my second entry here, but wasn't thinking about it. sorry for the double postings

Aye, the birdie is called Crow. ;)


A couple of other notes - things I should have thought to say in the original post.
I put the portrait in as a guide to my normal appearance, but it doesn't have to be used as is.
My personal preference is not to have animation in avatars, unless it's very subtle.
