2014-04-20 - Festival of Eggs

Recommended Posts

I'm actually pretty cool with my egg not having been mentioned anywhere. If it was, I missed it.

 

My egg has no story. It was just an egg.. and then i drew on it. I succeeded in having a boring eggy tongue.gif

I'm glad there's eggs like yours, Sextonator's, TJ's, and Dolphinsong's because I wanted some regular pattern Easter eggs too. It's my first Easter here and I was really worried I would have nothing but references and fancy things to look at. Cute and simple eggs are nice to have. smile.gif

I wish We could somehow put Mysfytt`s "lightning egg" into one of future releases, with the animation and some different color variations of dragons it would be supper cool.

I guess I'm really curious as to what Marrionetta's golden "upside-down faced" egg means, if anything?

Okay, the gold face egg, what are those two things next to it?

Wings.

Still don't understand why the Gold faced one is upside down...?

It is NOT boring just because it is simple. Much as I like the fancy ones and the animated ones, I am very glad to see some plainer, more traditional ones in the mix, too. Something for everyone, as it were. wink.gif

Since the list's been posted, I can finally claim this egg as mine xd.png I shall now reveal the hitherto unknown and previously unmentioned reference: Sweeney Todd, specifically Mrs. Lovett's song "By The Sea".

Damn. I wouldn't expect such a peaceful egg to be a Sweeney Todd reference of all things xd.png

I'm not a big forum poster, but I thought I'd take the time to say:

 

The Bahamut ZERO egg is both extremely clever and beautifully done.

Thank you!! It took a long time of fiddling until I could consider it good/done enough to submit, haha. I'm glad it's well-liked!

 

--

Yehh, so mine are Bahamut ZERO and a Minecraft Creeper. <3

I love Creepers. ovo

 

Pie, your egg is beautiful!

Everyone made fantastic eggs this year! Odie, your air force egg makes me wish I had made a Marines egg for my dad! XD

I'm fortunate to be on the almost the same time zone as the cave (central vs eastern), but I still had 12+ hours yesterday where I couldn't hunt. I am a working wife and mother of two boys with NO access to any internet while at work. Because I know this I "steal" what time I can, using my home computer for most of the egg hunt, and then my smart phone for the rest.

I'm on the west coast and the day it started I worked 3 hours of OT meaning I didn't get home till after 3am. I had to be back at work in 12 hours, with still needing to run errands before work. I don't have a smart phone and besides I couldn't use it at work even if I wanted to. Then I work 9 hours today. My next day off would be Tuesday which I had plans. But I can't do both egg hunt and what I had planned. So I'm having to choose. Between working at sleeping I'm only "home" for 6 hours in a 24 period, on a good day. And there is stuff I have to do at home. So that's great you were able to make it work, but not all of us are able to do that. My saving grace here is tomorrow. If I worked I would not have a chance.

Just saying more time would be nice is all. I see nothing wrong in expressing this, especially those who are really busy. I love collecting the eggs and trust me I spend all the time I possibly can on this, putting off a lot.

My egg is based on the Sparkeater from Transformers More Than Meets the Eye. It is a brief enemy that appears early in the series, but I really liked the creature.

Gah, I knew I should know what that egg was. I kept going "this looks familiar, what is it?"

 

Very nice. And to everyone else too. smile.gif

I thought there were 56 eggs? Nope. Looks like I'm done, then X'3

 

Where are the banners from? I don't see them anywhere.

If this is your first Festival of Eggs you won't have a banner. It is just to divide one year's eggs from the next. If you click on the egg basket at the top of my scroll you will see how it works. http://dragcave.net/user/purplehaze

Got all 55 last night. xd.png My number one favorite is the Thranduil egg just because of my passion for that character - loved him since I was a child and first heard the story - but the disco ball is my second favorite. I love all the eggs though and wouldn't want to give any up. Verridith definitely has an eye for sparkle and I love that! That said, those supposed "simple" eggs are great too. I love the colors and designs in them, my favorite of those being the dark gold/bronze looking one - just because it looks like gold chocolate to me. And since I love dragons so much, Smaug's eye was an extremely awesome egg for me. I can't even list the ones I love most because there were so many of them, but I'll be happily staring at all of them throughout the ages.

 

You spriters are seriously awesome! Thanks for all the great work!

Finally got the 55th! biggrin.gif They are all beautiful. It amazes the creativity of all the people that made them. And about my favorite, I don't know, maybe the watch-egg. I'm rarely on time, so this would be ueseful for me. rolleyes.gif

I really like collecting all these eggs every year, but I was wondering.......how does one get to make an egg for this? I'm not the BEST at spriting, but I've managed to make some eggs with neat designs that I THINK would be good enough to be used for something like this. smile.gif

I think my egg caused some confusion as to what it was referencing, while it's handy that HTTYD2 is coming out soon, I really wasn't intending to reference anything, but it was a certainly interesting reaction! Originally I was wanting to do a hummingbird but I couldn't seem to get it working the way I wanted to XP
