The idea of this contest is very simple:
Draw on any available surface, as long as it isn't paper.
See the details of the [#THEME].



Images must be created by Elftowners and posted here by the original artist. Which means, no matter how much you might like a particular image on somebody's house, you are not allowed to add it here. This includes random images from the net too. MAKE YOUR OWN DARN IMAGES, DON'T STEAL THEM AND TRY TO CLAIM THEM AS YOUR OWN! That makes us angry, very angry indeed.

Please put forth your best effort and the best quality, i.e.
- no bad pictures or scans of your doodles
- your doodles don't have to be newly made, old doodles will also be accepted
- doodles must show it took some effort to create. A doodle is still a drawing or sketch, so it requires more than a few lines randomly placed.


To upload your image full-size you can use the feature 'Upload a folder of images' that is shown on your house.
This feature allows you to upload one, multiple images or zip-files in their original size to a wikipage.
Once you click this link you can follow the instructions. See also uploading images.

Since the winners will be featured on Mainstreet, entries that include graphic violence, pornography or other disturbing actions will not be accepted. Only entries that fit the theme will be allowed.

All applicable mediums will be accepted.
No photography, photo-manipulations or animations.

If the doodle is on a surface that looks like paper, you should also submit a proof photo showing what exactly it's drawn on.



The theme of this contest is:
'Doodle where you can'
Sure you've at least once realised you're out of paper when you really want to draw, or been so bored in class you started to doodle on the nearest available surface, be it your own hand, jeans, or even the school desk. That's what we want to see.

2708) What should be allowed as a "doodle"? (Administrator: [Hedda])

Number of voters: 115
* a) Only accidental things that you draw somewhere when you're out of paper.
Number of votes: 18 (16%)

* b) Anything drawn on a surface not very well suited for art.
Number of votes: 83 (72%)

* c) Anything drawn on a non-paper, non-canvas surface (which would include graffiti-painting, tattoos and wood-carvings).
Number of votes: 14 (12%)


The deadline of this competition is October 1, 2007.

We will be picking two (2) images as the winners.

Ten images will be picked out by the Council and the Assembly among all those presented and a Mainstreet poll will tell the winner.
Participants will receive an art donor badge, and winners will receive a coloured version of the same (or a green/coloured Masters of Building badge if they are committed art donors).

2007-08-18 [Hedda]: So drawing in the sand or in the snow, would be B in the poll.

2007-08-18 [Iske]: owwwwwwwwww and i just aswerd A
when i think off doodling i think of making drawings unconcentrated
when you feel like it, and it can be on paper but that's out of the contest, It is not on paper..

2007-08-18 [Nocternity S.]: yeah but most times when you draw something accidental you dont usually take a picture of it, unless you plan it like on this situation... then you would prolly think of what your doing a little bit more.

2007-08-18 [LeafyGreenPuddle]: " - doodles must show it took some effort to create. A doodle is still a drawing or sketch, so it requires more than a few lines randomly placed. " some effort to create on any surface other than paper.

2007-08-18 [LeafyGreenPuddle]: I have a problem with point C in this poll...

Where do you draw the line between drawing on your skin in class and a tattoo? How can you tell the difference once the photo is submitted? And wood carvings are clearly not a doodle as I am to understand that that requires a sharp object, not ink... or pencil. I understand a doodle to be something drawn.

So, ok... graffiti should not be included as well as painting and sculpture. (maybe we should have a graffiti contest in the future, that could be neat.)

But how is a tattoo or skin drawing not "a surface not well-suited for art?"

Jeeeze, Elftown might need a lawyer someday.

2007-08-18 [SilverFire]: I thought it would be fairly clear that carving wouldn't count as 'doodle' but then I thought about it - have you ever walked into an old church, and seen all the graffiti on the pews? people's names, initials, symbols, etc. I think if someone asked me, I'd possibly apply the word 'doodle' to that. Which means that at least some form of carving counts as a 'doodle'. However - I wouldn't count a full carving as a doodle, because of how much fore-planning it takes. To me, doodles are unplanned things. I have no problem with painting being included - I've 'doodled' with paints.

The problem with the first option is proving that it was indeed drawn in the situation described.

2007-08-18 [Sunrose]: Kind of what I thought on carvings, it's possible to mindlessly carve into something.
But carving an entire figure out of something would take actual focus I'd say..unless you're awesomely gifted I suppose.

2007-08-19 [Iske]: a tattoo you don't doodle :) that would be fun... it's is a well picked out design most off the time... (i hope lol)

2007-08-19 [SilverFire]: UNless you design it yourself, and are doodling, and find you quite like one of your doodles.

2007-08-19 [Khronos Atmosphaera]: Sharpies... I use sharpies to doodle on people all the time. I used to do it in school, and I did it to my friends because they wanted me to draw on them, lol. Sounds strange, but it's not a tattoo, but a doodle... on skin... or maybe a 'trial' tattoo.

2007-08-19 [Demon Epona]: << Whoa... XD! IT'S TENSHI!!!! XD! Fancy meetin' you here. <<?

2007-08-20 [Khronos Atmosphaera]: Well, hi, Epona! I've never done a contest, so I decided to try at it. ^^ And I'm about to upload my doodle!

2007-08-20 [jbrown]: can you use other mediums? some1 plz email

2007-08-20 [Akayume]: Yes. Tattoos are generally perminate, right?
If you draw with a pen, marker, or sharpie, it'll wash off sooner or later...

2007-08-20 [BinaryPhoenix]: <img:stuff/mood7-gif.gif> Most doodles I draw are in my Diary or notebook during meetings. Or on a piece of scrap lined paper. so I guess they can't be entered. I'll have to doodle on something non-paper... <img:stuff/sutN.gif> I wonder if they would look at me funny if I brought in a piece of material into the meeting to "take notes on"...

2007-08-20 [SilverFire]: Tattoos are generally permanent, unless you get a semi-permanent tattoo, in which case they're usually semi-permanent. :P

2007-08-21 [Iske]: [BinaryPhoenix] i know what you mean, that's what i call doodling . Lett all the ppl in the room think you're taking notes but you are just drawing without a purpose. Just brain on non-active and hand on, does not matter what it draws.

2007-09-19 [LeafyGreenPuddle]: Ok, I've uploaded my entry.... now what? How do you know I'm competing?

2007-09-19 [Linderel]: Erm, well... you're supposed to put your entry up on Doodle Art entries, page 1.

2007-09-20 [LeafyGreenPuddle]: lol... :P Thank you! I'm such a ditz sometimes.

2007-10-03 [xXxsitting in darknessxXx]: omg!!!!!!!!! i got this oct 2 i have a tree drawn on the side of my computer this is so gay
