Camp Scurvy - a two week doodle-like summer program! Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

For experienced and novice doodlers alike!

Much like the December Daily Doodles and Spring Egguinox that Apollo runs, Herowena and Dexla will be serving as your camp counselors to bring you a variety of (mostly) 24-hour-long quickie contests to keep those doodling skills sharp! Just because it's summer break, doesn't mean you should be slacking off! While our experienced Doodlers know the general drill, here is a (blatantly copied) general run down of what Camp Scurvy is about:

Beginning Monday, July 18th, at or soon after midnight game time, a new doodle-like contest will be posted each weekday, for the next two weeks.
Most of these contests will be forum-based and will require entries to be posted within the next 24-hours. On the following midnight game time, the contest will close, and the next contest will be announced. There will be two forum threads for this event. This thread will contain a running summary of events, winners and prizes in the second post, as well as any discussion. The second thread will contain all contest descriptions and their entries during the two weeks, and should be used for entries only - no discussion or questions. Each daily contest will be inspired in some way by summer camp activities, the fun of doodling, or pirates!

The general rules for the forum contests are as follows, closely based on those used in the December Daily Doodles.
-- 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. Unless we've made a serious booch, we're not going to be answering questions during the day. 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 the contest has closed, and results will be posted as quickly as we possibly can.
-- PRIZES WILL BE DELIVERED AT THE END OF THIS CAMP SESSION. Because this is being run by mere mortals, we will not be bothering the OM to make daily deliveries. At the end of the 2 weeks, a final list will be sent to the OM to request delivery of every ones prizes, at the same time.
-- Don't get hung up on the prizes and the need to win (for the prizes will be small trinkets). 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!

*** TO REITERATE THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CAMP SCURVY, AND OTHER DOODLING EVENTS ***
Prizes will NOT be delivered immediately, but at the end of the 2 weeks.

The second post in this thread will contain links to the contests and winners. Again, a separate thread will be used as the entry thread for the whole contest.

Start packing those arts and craft supplies! Charge up the camera battery! Where's your microphone? Sharpen your pencils! The camp bus leaves soon!

In regards to questions:
Because of the short time-spam of doodles, we don't want to delay anyone's creativity if we're unable to answer questions all day. Don't over analyze the instructions, go with your gut feelings, be creative, have fun!

Is there a link to Yohoho Tools? I can't seem to find it. I have ScenePainter, but can't figure out how to recolor/place things. :-/

Okay, scratch that part. I think I figured out the ScenePainter. But, I can't figure out how to color things. Any help? Thanks. ^_^

So...Mr. Squishy, my entry for today, was made of what I thought was sculpey, which you bake to harden after you make your object. Unfortunately, he wasn't, and melted into a rather majestic pile of goo.

In light of that..

I'd like to take a moment to pay tribute to a wonderful octopus by the name of Squishy.

He may not have been the largest, nor most colourful of his species, but what he lacked of in appearance, he made up for in boundless creativity.

Though he is now gone, taken from us by the 275* oven and scraped into a trash can, we must all remember him for the tiny sculpey-impersonating-octopus he was.

May he live on forever in our hearts.
