Art:December Doodles 2017

Doodle #1: Bottle Cap Baubles! (Hosted by Hera)
28 December - Your task for this doodle is to upcycle bottle caps into Xmas decorations with a YPP theme. I don't just want one decoration, I want three. They don't need to be the same, they can be constructed in different ways but displayed together they should reflect some aspect of YPP. For example: powder, wad and shot would be three different decorations coming together to reflect the art of gunning.
Doodle #2: All I wanted for Xmas... (Hosted by Hera)
2 January - Write a missive to the YPP art Gods requesting that a peacock pet be added to our list of wonderful critters. Your request should be in the form of a rhyming couplet.
Doodle #3: Appalling Apparel! (Hosted by Hera)
4 January - Design an item of 'Appalling Apparel' (ugly sweater) with a YPP theme (Classic or Dark Seas).
Doodle #4: The Nicest Surprise (Hosted by Clotho)
9 January - Draw a picture representing the nicest surprise you had in 2017. This can be something in real life, or something in the game. If you really can't think of a nice surprise you had this year, then please draw the surprise you'd LOVE to get in 2018!
Doodle #5: Let's Cheer Her(a) Up! (Hosted by Clotho)
11 January - It's time for that wonderful thing, the singing doodle! Today, I'd like you to sing for me; or at least, make some kind of musical approximation to singing. This year, we're going to try to cheer Hera up, so the song must include the phrase Hera wants a peacock pet somewhere.
Doodle #6: Cardstock Cutouts! (Hosted by Nemesis)
16 January - Create your own pirate vessel (either one from in game, or use your imagination!) using only old cards, tape, and glue.
Doodle #7: Letters to Santy Cronus! (Hosted by Nemesis)
18 January - Write a handwritten, appropriately decorated, pirate-fied and passionate, plea to Santy Cronus fer rich rewards of any variety in th' next holiday season.
