The Doodle Reloaded (29th)
Look back over the month of (Daily) Doodles and choose a contest from earlier in the month. It might be one that you missed at the time and wanted to have a go at. It might be one that you did, and then had a much better idea 24 hours later! It might be one that you had a lot of fun doing, and wouldn't mind doing again with a second idea!
Weekend Five: Weekend Voguing fun with Apollo (30th & 31st)
Create a picture of a pirate (your own or someone else's) strutting their stuff on catwalk or at a photoshoot. Design the set, design the outfit, strike the pose. You can make use of screenshots or in-game art in your picture if you wish, or you can create the whole lot from scratch.
