Doodle 4 Google 2010 by poplarleaves Doodle 4 Google 2010 by poplarleaves
My entry for Doodle 4 Google. Check it out here: [link]

Not much to say. The theme was "If I could do anything, I would..."

Go ahead and guess how I completed the sentence. :) Go ahead. GUESS. IF YOU DARE.

Ahahahaha~

Looks awesome! If I could draw like, I just might be a productive member of the DA community.

As for your challenge, is it "to wish on a star"? I came to this conclusion because I noticed there wasn't a shooting star in the picture. You wish on a birthday candle, and dandelion by blowing on it, but you typically don't wish on a stationary star (unless you want your puppet to come to life). I doubt I'm right, but that is what over-analyzing brought me to.

Thanks! XD And I think you're already productive if you go around and post extensive comments on people's deviations. :)

The theme was "If I could do anything, I would..." and my answer was "grant wishes". Hence the hands holding the dandelion out to the viewer. I think you did overthink it a little. ^^;

What? That doesn't make any sense. The only one that should have showed up on the Google homepage was this one: [link]

Mine wasn't even a State winner, so there is absolutely no way that it could have been on the Google homepage.

Well, your teacher would have entered it if it was the most popular one in your school. At my school, we voted on which entries we liked best, and mine won. :D

Ah, thanks. It actually looks nicer than a lot of the ones I've seen.
...from my own school.
I'd say you have some chance of winning at least statewide. XD I swear, some of the entries from last year were so incredibly unoriginal that I just sort of gagged when i saw them.

Imma fave yours now. :meow:

Alright, I can connect all of the elements to some sort of wish-granting-myth EXCEPT the wind. It's a bit distracting, and I'm not sure how the wind is.. wish-like.
Aside from that, it's very nice on the eyes, Kanon, even if it did take me a moment or so to figure out the theme.

Haha. Aw, Kanon. I know you get boatloads of comments, most being very nonsensical. I'm impressed you get around to replying to most of them.

Yes, I do get boatloads of comments. XD I reply to the ones that need replying to, mostly. And then there are the ones I just want to reply to, which are usually fun. :D

Design wise it's pretty strong. I like it. Critique wise, I feel like the lines should be cleaner, particularly the hands. Most of Google's logos are clean. That and the biggest issue, I have no idea what your message is. When you are given a prompt, it is imperative that the viewer easily identifies the central theme of the visual.

Well, I didn't have much time to put this together, and I wanted to make it kind of... childish?

By the way, just to ruin everyone's guessing games, the theme is "If I could do anything, I would grant wishes." So... that explains the hands, I guess. ._.
