Spring Egguinox! Egg-themed daily doodle contests! Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

When: Monday 11th April - Sunday 24th April
What: A new contest most days
Who for: everyone
Who by: Apollo

As I did last year, here is a little Doodling to keep you going while waiting for December to come round again! Every weekday, at or soon after midnight PDT, I will post a contest. Most of these contests will be forum-based and will require entries the same day. At the next midnight, I'll close one contest and announce the next one. There will be a variety of prizes and they won't be pre-announced, although I think you should assume that eggs will be involved in there somewhere. Or everywhere.

There will be two forum threads for this event. This thread will contain a running summary of events, winners and prizes, as well as any discussion. A 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 one of this year's Egg Furniture designs.

>--------------------<

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.
-- I will try to make the instructions clear for each contest. Unless I've made a serious booch, I'm 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 I always aim to post results within a day of the contest closing. I 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.
-- I'll be doing most of the judging, bringing in others as and when I feel I need them. I'm not going to get into discussions on the judging of any individual event.
-- I will try to deliver prizes myself as I announce them.
-- 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!


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

It's probably Cronus's fault.

The important part of "doodles" is DO! Just have fun with it. :)

That shouldn't stop you. Apollo doesn't always choose the entries that are, what I would consider "amazing". He's very unpredictable.......and maybe a little sinister (looks at the avie).

As he has said, "Doodles are very good for the soul". So go forth and doodle just for the fun of it! =D

I had to google it ... I hope they taste better than the description ...

And what in addition to everyone else says - if you doodled a doodle, then enter it. If you had fun while doodling, then you are already a winner. Doodlers don't criticize. We just have fun doing the best we can do, while sharing a challenge together.

I always look at each project as a way to practice drawing, crafting, writing or creative thinking. Except for singing. That's plain torture :)

I actually had three entries for today and they were all so bad silly, I had trouble choosing one to submit.

I decided against this one. It seemed like stretching the assignment, even by my standards...but I like it. And want cookies.



(The other entry was a cookie jar shaped like a chest, with a keyhole and the words "me booty" drawn in blue. It's probably best if future doodles don't involve the word cookie as it does unhelpful things to my brain.)

Ok, I took you at your word and did a completely awful entry, but ya know--it's growing on me. I had a lot of fun with it and tried something new. I can't wait to see what I will be doing tomorrow.

I Googled too... Marmite twigs? o.0 Can I have some of Budclare's cookies instead, pretty please (no offense, lovely Apollo; I am assuming they are choc-chip, not Marmite dollops...)?

Edit: My mum drinks something called Bonox - which is like Marmite stirred into hot water... She would probably love those twigs! =D

Twiglets are amazing - don't knock them till you've tried them. (Plus seeing as Apollo likes them, they're clearly food of the gods!)

Yesterday's doodle was slightly postponed by the need to bake cookies... Mmmmm chunky white chocolate and raspberry. Thank goodness I'm not getting the urge to make a kilt today to help with my poetry!

I find it difficult to believe that, in this age of global trade, there are places without Twiglets. (they're yummy. Yum.)

If you don't fancy those, have a sandwich instead. *peers inside* Looks like strawberry jam and garlic mayo. Enjoy!
