Thursday: Connect the Dots!

Thu Mar 28, 2013, 3:53 PM


As an update from our earlier journal post, the Premium Membership privilege bug should be fixed. If your account has not been automatically restored, please see this journal. :)

Great choices for deviations to fit the movie quotes from last week! Who knew each quote could manifest in so many different ways. Well done!

Our top six winners are:

:star: "The stuff that dreams are made of."
Creamy Cake Mountain by raevynewings Interloper by CatCouch
Chosen by Everch and Hakkaeni

:star: "It's alive! It's alive!"
Summoner Library by asuka111 Obviously Dead by 2dforever
Chosen by Silvanne and ManiacalFreak

:star: "I'm going to make him an offer he can't refuse."
An Offer You Can't Refuse by DarthMael Donut Lust by bQw
Chosen by thefantasim and LovesBloom

Congratulations! Winners will be contacted within the next 24 hours.

For this week, we're asking you to reminisce! Remember those activities you did as a kid where you had a cluster of numbered dots and you would have to connect them to find out what the hidden image was?  We're taking a new spin on this idea!  Given the template below (right click to save the file), connect any number of dots to find an image inside!  You don't have to use all of the dots, just whichever ones you wish.

Untitled Drawing by Ayame-Kenoshi

Keep your eyes open and search through this random assortment of circles.  Do you see a sky full of storm clouds?  Or perhaps a pack of rabid wolves?  Something is sure to catch your attention!  Once it does, connect the dots to create an image, which can be anything you can imagine.  

For example, this would be my entry:
Connect the dots 2 by Ayame-Kenoshi

But I'm sure you all can do much better. ;)

Once you have the outline of this image, feel free to color it in, create a background, or depict an entire scene!  Also, if you find several images in this template, outline them all and have them interact.

:star: Need inspiration? Check out the Gallery from the other Connect the Dots contest we previously ran!

Rules:
:bulletblue: No cheating! Do not add or delete any dots from this template.  You must use the actual template in creating your entry.
:bulletblue: You may color over dots that are included in your image.  For example, if you connect the dots to make llama, and you want to color the llama brown but not have it plagued by spots, fill it in with brown and cover up those black spots!  Save it from a horrible, horrible flesh disease.
:bulletblue: You may rotate the template in any direction.
:bulletblue: You're not limited to drawing straight lines between the dots (aka curvy lines between dots are fine).
:bulletblue: You can add any additional details you'd like as long as you don't add or delete dots.

Since this contest is a little more involved, we will be giving you until next Tuesday, April 9, 2013 at 11:59:59 PM PDT to complete your entries.  All entries must be submitted to the Connect the Dots Again Gallery Folder.  Entries will be judged on use of the template, creativity, cleverness, and artistic interpretation.  Feel free to enter as many times as you wish!

We'll choose three winners who will receive a mystery deviantART T-Shirt, along with a dA lanyard and dA stickers! This will be a t-shirt that's no longer available in the T-Shirts and Gear shop. Sizes may be limited. 

:star: In summary, download or print out the template and connect the dots to find a hidden image!  Submit your work to the Connect the Dots Again Gallery Folder for your chance at winning some remarkable prizes.  Have fun and get creative! :woohoo:

Is that the one about "an offer he can't refuse"? Haha I loved it! I was just reading through the article and imagining what I would have done, and then I saw yours and the way you approached it completely differently - it was a nice surprise :D

So do you have to be a premium member to do this and can we print it off and do it traditionally? Thanks

Hmm... does "drawing with dots" can be done also in traditional way? [I mean: print template on paper, connect dots, then make a scan.]

Yep! That's totally acceptable. :)
