Not necessarily - I've never won anything on LBPC and it all depends on the theme and if I can find some time to do it :)

Wait what?!
Aww man, all this time i thought this was a Character "costume" creation contest...
But is creating it as an object, not as a costume XD
(Man i'm so lost sometimes)

In that case, i'd like to be a judge!

Funny, I was about to make a costume creation contest. Then I saw tjb's contest and realized I needed actual characters more for my project :P

EDIT: Ok, changed it.

Ok, I know it's like an hour early, but who cares?

The first round of the Character Design Contest has started!
Please base your characters around the following theme:
Animals

I promise the themes in the next rounds will be more interesting ;)

The deadline is July 18, 2009 @ 12:00 AM! If you don't send me a PM before then your submission will not be considered for finalists!

Morgana25
07-04-2009, 05:53 AM

If entries go on like this judjing will be quite difficult. :)

Morgana25
07-11-2009, 12:24 AM
ok - got one finished. I had to do a dragon and I hope that's ok with Gravel. :) We have very different styles so I think it's ok.

Level name: Tweak - the Scaredy Dragon
Location: Antartica

Let me introduce you to TWEAK - the Scaredy Dragon. He's afraid of pretty much everything but especially sackboys & girls. Such a delicate little guy - all he wants is to be left alone. Check him out.

btw - I couldn't resist putting him in context in a cave (you can climb up on top of him to get a better view... and it's funny as heck to watch him watch you. I also included an unlit unobstructed version of him is on top of the cave for closer scrutiny. Oh yea - his tail flicks and his heart races as you get nearer to him, and he shakes as he tries to hide behind his tiny arms... poor thing. Hope you like him - I've come to love the little guy.

The level is copyable (which I'm a bit nervous about since it isn't locked) Hope he doesn't get hijacked!

crazymario
07-11-2009, 02:53 AM
Everyone's looks awesome so far!

I have to have it copyable, so I can change anything if something goes wrong, or if something is needed. Adding friends and getting keys is just too much trouble for me :P (you never know if somebody, even me, will forget...)

On a side note, the deadline has been extended to July 25th. Just in case.

Couldn't you just arrange with each creator whose entry you want to copy a time window to make it copyable so you can get it right away and they can then lock it so it's not there for everyone to get hold of ?

Gravel
07-12-2009, 03:46 AM
Hey Nice dragon! I really like the arms and legs--nicely sculpted... as far as choosing a dragon (puhleeze).... like I'd care, styles or otherwise, Tuckerd for me was just a nights work and I had fun, Dragons are popular! Now the real question is... If I make a Ghostbusters Level will you mind if I make Gargoyles?

Morgana25
07-12-2009, 04:38 AM
LOL - I wouldn't mind at all :) I don't own a copywrite on the concept of gargoyles. I'd actually be really psyched to see your take on them!

But you do have a point...maybe next round.

Ok I thought I may aswell have a go although looking at all your entries peeps mine looks rather feeble.

Anyway mine is called 'Ellie the Elephant'. Yeah I know it's not a very original name but I wanted 2 female names that rhymed for obvious reasons when you look at the photo below ( that's her baby 'Nellie' with her ).

I had made what I called the "Possessed Pandiger Bear", but upon shrinking it to "Shopkeeper" size, all of the small parts (teeth, nails) disappeared. These entries are amazing though so far.

Ok, looked at both Gravel's and Morgana's... uber-detail! I mean, even if it's just a character, you still give lots of atmosphere to these, er... dragons. And I've got to say, when you compare the two, they're like opposites. Boy, I'll have to step up my game to get as good as these.

Gravel
07-15-2009, 06:20 AM
Very kind comments thanks... I just said the other day, we should all make Dragons and fill in the areas between with atmospheric platforming... Call it Dragon Isle.

Morgana! Don't listen to me... I don't wanna be the bad guy when some guy named Gravel steals "Tweak" and his uber-kool machinations and reintroduces him as "Twitch" in his new level entitled... Dragon Isle.

Ok everyone Get busy creating! [wrings hands dastardly] If only I had a handlebar mustache to 'tweak'

Morgana25
07-15-2009, 06:57 PM
You're not the bad guy. The guy who steals it is. ;) Rules say copyable so copyable it is. I did put it in Antarctica to try an minimize casual players finding it.

Cool elephant, mistervista! I'll probably be using "Nellie" because of the size rule, though.

But now I've thought of an interesting story for the 4th level. (out of 16) ...if it wins

Don't worry guys, I'll be judging fairly. xD
I choose finalists based on what I need for the level project. And I rate based on what's cool.
Why don't I just ask someone to create characters for me? Because a contest is more interesting. :P

AwesomePossum
07-16-2009, 08:23 AM
Wow, Gravel's dragon looks really cool, and so does Morgana's. Tough competition D:

Those elephants are also lovely <3

Hmm, I suggest making a museum of the none-winners and (maybe) make it copyable? :D

BSprague

All of these entries look fantastic so far.

mistervista, is the elephant animated? It's hard to tell from a screenshot, but it looks like an action shot of you riding the elephant. It itself doesn't actually look like it has parts to move, but I can imagine the ears and trunk animating and such. Great job on it either way though.

mistervista
07-16-2009, 12:38 PM
Just the trunk moves on both , and the big one ( Ellie ) squirts water ( bubbles ) out at you.

I couldn't really make the ears flap correctly as it's not possible to make movement between layers. I could have made some that go up and down but thought it wasn't worth the effort as they wouldn't look right doing that anyway.

I know I did that with my vulture in Sheriff Sack but that's because with it being a bird I wanted to give at least some sort of wing movement to make it look a bit more realistic. It would be great if MM gave us the ability to make movement through the layers but I don't think that will ever happen.

It sounds like you would have benefited from the Theck/Thack glitch, which basically give you two extra types of layers. You can make flat objects rotate on top of flat objects among other things, and it would be easier to get everything you want into it. Regardless though, great work. :)

This isn't a SACKBOY character creation contest, it's simply a character creation contest. Thus meaning that you go into create mode and create a character with materials.

So you just make a character-related person?

Morgana25
07-18-2009, 07:42 PM
You make an animal out of the materials in create mode. Like the characters in the Story mode of the game. Like the alligators or the Merkats or Giraffes. Basically think of it as an object you make that looks like an animal.

Does that make sense?

Thanks for the offer Gravel, I know where to go for quality props when I make The Frog Prince. Please don't hold your breath, it could be quite some time before that happens, and if Fleegle is the standard of creation I produce in that Fairy Tale I may well shoot myself!! :D

Billy hasn't been none too happy since his cousin got the top bunny spot as the Energizer Bunny. So armed with his 44 magnum Salad Shooter, Billy has been practicing to perhaps pay his cousin a little visit.

You have to go in and check him out as I found it pretty darn hysterical making him.. Just be careful! I have it rigged to fire real live carrot rounds so don't spook him or he might just aim for you!

Posted in Antartica as well.. I'm sure he will behave for now..


Have fun!!

Icemaiden I checked yours out earlier and it was brilliant. He's so cute and your scenery in the level is awesome once again ( loved the lilies and the bullrushes ). I've just PM'd Rhy and left a message with him for you so I won't repeat it here.

And jww I'll check yours out as soon as I get back on the PS3 later today. He looks awesome too.

What started out as a little contest is turning up some real gems of characters and is great fun. Well done crazymario for kicking it off. I can't wait to see how/if you use some of them in your level/s.

Oh wow! That bunny is awesome, love how your pictures zoom in his face :O

I should check out Icemaiden's too, looks cute and cuddly!

Someone should really make a museum once this is done, showcasing all of these wonderful creations :)

Oh yeah, I'm wondering if this is okay, I haven't published his level yet, I just made him an hour ago.

Meet Grizwald, you're not-so ordinary rabbit. He works 8 hours a day and makes $3 an hour. He aspires to become the back-up dancer of teen-pop sensation singer Bucky Kentucky, although his agent (his mom) says otherwise.

As you can see, very simple but I love his dumb-stricken look :arg:

Jww, what can I say... the humour followed you over...5 stars and a 'Billiant!'

Awesome-- your bunny is just as awesome and I mean it... really like the backstory as well...

Those two rabbits sum up LBP pretty well... they are 'equally' great and at opposite poles of craftEarth... amazing!

Oh darn , I already have another frog that I made a few weeks ago. Well 2 different ones actually but I've already had my 2 allowed entries so I can't do any more.
I'd be happy to let anyone see them though or just put them in one of the levels as support characters and if AwesomePossum's museum idea is taken up I'd be more than happy to donate them to that aswell.

if it is the will of the people... Tuckerd is game... Actually I got a few things I would like preserved and copyable-- otherwise they're due to be recycled to make room... I actually just destroyed my Yoko Ono Lennon Gallery... but still posses the 'Indica Gallery' store front and walk-up that housed it... so I am game.


... and if Zwollie enters-- what I think he wants to enter-- "it deserves to be in a Museum!" (Said Doctor Jones Jr.) Epic in Nature... Big as Texas... Avery game changer... A truly remarkable grand work of art, that has no right to be in a contest of this magnitude... it will dwarf all that has come before, and scar all those who follow...

Lol Icemaiden. Urrgh isn't it just always carrots !

I loved Billy the bad news bunny jww and your wolf Zwollie is excellent. Great animation and humour in both those guys.

This contest is seriously hotting up now. I wouldn't like to be a judge that's for sure because it's gonna be tough.

I don't know how but it would be great if we could combine all these into some sort of animated cartoon level. Online create would be real handy for that. It would be awesome and if it could happen I would like to be the first to nominate Icemaiden to do the scenery for it. No pressure Icey !!

I haven't seen any big bad wolf in a post yet, I might have to login here in a bit and check it out. What's funny is I was sorta thinking of doing a pig as well... hmmmmm... :)

Ok, just took a look at Zwollie's. He's gots it in de bag...

Not if Rex has anything to say about it!!

Yes, my entry iz a vicious, snarling, farting, 120 mph chomping... well, I won't spoil it too soon. Here's his title:

Oh. Looks like I caught him at the wrong time. Backing away now...

This hound is looking to stir up a torrent of trouble, and I have to say this guy would probably shred the living daylights out of most of these submissions. Especially the fluffy kinds. Like sackpeople.

Or toast. He loves that.

After a series of failed attempts to get those chickens, Leroy just purchased the Acme Lure-a-chicken. It works!! That dastardly wolf can't contain his joy any longer so he dances. Dances on and on and on,... :)

Special cameos by an infinite amount of hypnotised chickens!!



This was just what I needed in LBP, something else, and I very much enjoyed making it!! :)

Basically could i do a spider?
A spider is perfectly fine for the contest. However, it most likely won't make it to finalists. You may want to choose something else unless it's gonna be really awesome. :P



And if i'm not mistaking, you can withdraw and replace an entrie for a new one, right cm?

Correct. You may do that if you want.
I'll put that rule in later. But it still applies now.

Anyways, I finally got down to writing down everyone's entries.
There are 11 (or supposedly 12, unless kodymcq quit (http://www.lbpcentral.com/forums/member.php?u=3594)) entries.
9 people entered. Meaning that I could probably get 5 finalists. Only 4 people could get their feelings hurt, and only 2 people would lose the round.

So....c'mon people, we need more entries! ;)

..oh wait.. Rewind! Never mind.. All better! ;)

You know - anyone who has creator's block need only look at this thread for at least three dozen different ideas for story lines on a level... not that they should "steal" these but using different characters with slighly different motivations you could find tons of levels to build in just these few characters.

I think I'm going to start including this exercise in my advice for creators block: Pick an animal - now what makes it tick, what does it like, what does it hate, Is it brave or cowardly or a heck of a smooth dancer - now pick one of those things and make him do it - voila - level!

Thanks Icey , that's why I called him 'Leroy Wolfgang Astaire'. I'll let you do a Ginger Rogers to go with him. You'd make a much better job than I could.

So currently I have been messing with silhouettes... I really like them... however, I am not a shy person- nor afraid of flogging my own horn. If this were genius... trust me I'd tell you so...

edit.. addition of bad news concerning bad news billy..

Well... just got some bad news from Outlaw-Jack via my comment page.. Seems someone snagged an earlier version of Billy and has him published as their own. Funny thing.. he didn't change any of the text on the level name nor the description.. so it still has the LBPC character contest info in it.. as well as it isn't a level!!

Sorta depressing. ..I left a comment asking him to please delete asap and we will see what happens. If you do a search for Bad News Billy you will find there are two. Jack.. I need to borrow Rex... or could you just point him in the direction of whatever his name was..

Oh well.. :)

That's exactly why I hate that they are copyable. I understand the need for them to be for the contest but people just can't be trusted not to steal other people's hard work. Gr.....

I also agree with the cheesy sentiments - This has been a really fun contest. Great group of participants and while no one likes to loose, we are all in great company if we do. :)

I agree.. I consider us all winners as well!! This has been one of the most fun things I have done in a long time. Great group of folks playing character show and tell.

I just wanted jww to be aware about that. I already took care of the "Good Grief"ing and warned that guy to never copy any levels again. Or else... :kz:

That aside, this is a really fun competition. Great participants, great designs, great feedback... just plain great! Plus, this is only round one; my forte has yet to be seen! Imagine all of the crazy entries that'll ensue once round II comes around! That'll be awesomez!! Congrats to every participant!; This competition has really brought the community together.

I'm sorry jww, I do know how horrible it feels to have your work copied. It made me depressed and weepy for days and I only had a small part of my level copied. Some people have no regard for the feelings of others and how they are affected by what they do.

In my mind Billy is yours and always will be, end of.

I feel sorry for this guy because I may have just changed my name to 'ICEY NOT NICEY'.

This has been a fun competition, it even made me laugh! Good luck everyone.

I wouldn't be surprised if all our creations have been copied. We can't really have a go at people for copying them because we have left them for anyone and everyone to copy in the first place although they shouldn't just copy and blatantly republish exactly as is.

I was worried about that all along. I just hope nobody has them all and steals our museum idea.

I really think we need to do something different next time crazymario. I'm not happy about leaving them copyable all the time because there are always going to be people out there who steal them and do what they've done to jww ( sorry to hear about that by the way ).

Maybe we need to have them locked and copyable in future like GrantosUK has just done with his 1 layer race gate level. I know that means taking up another slot on your published levels with a safe for the key if you've got one spare ( I'm not sure I have right now ) but it's better than having everything stolen.

Or could we just add you and send them. I'm not sure if you can edit them then though.
Whatever , we need to find a solution for next time.

By the way if you've already copied them could you tell us and then we can make them not copyable again. After all once you have them they don't need to be copyable any more.

Apart from that issue I have to agree with everyone else and say this has been one of the most fun contests ever. Ive had a great time doing mine and also seeing the great creations everyone else has come up with.

Bring on part 2 ( but with better security ).

Zwollie
07-25-2009, 09:47 AM
Simple solution for this problem: we publish it twice.
Once as an open version for the masses and once locked but copyable and we send a key for that one to crazymario.

crazymario
07-25-2009, 01:47 PM

Thanks everyone.. I'm really not upset at all.. and today I actually find it a bit funny. Thankfully it wasn't really a level and did it just for fun and as well as the experience.

...but Zwollie.. a whole clone army of Billy's? Yikes.. that is kinda creepy!

I might send the guy a pm and again tell him he should delete the level, but also tell him I would be more than happy to explain any of the bits that he doesn't understand to help him make animated creatures of his own. I can't fault him for copying, I simply question him publishing as is. Possibly he ran out of space on his moon and wanted to keep it to study it a bit. If so... then simply lock it!

Appreciate that we will be a bit more secure next round. ...still it has been a great time and look forward to whatever next round brings!!

The winners are:










1. Leroy Wolfgang by Zwollie
2. Tweak by Morgana25
3. Batatouille by IceMaiden










Please keep them unlocked and copyable until I say so!
Congratulations to all of the winners! Everyone did a fantastic job! The next round will be held off for a little bit so I can rework the rules. It seems that everyone had a good time in this contest (including me), and I want to make sure it happens again!

Round 2 won't start until my birthday (August 1st). So, while we wait, let us work on the other various levels that consume our precious time on the PS3....

Or guess what the next round will be. I say Californian-zombie-outlaws. :p

Sorry.. This one confuses my poor lil head.

3. Publish that level copyable. (Lock it if you want)

You are saying "locked" as in unable to copy or "locked" as in needing a key to play it?

I am thinking you mean locked as in unable to copy.

Thanks!

I'll have to reword it later. Too lazy right now. :p

But you can keep the level unlocked and uncopyable until you win.

a key room perhaps? Or publish a locked copyable version along with a unlocked non copyable version :P

Meh, nevermind.

Reworded to say "copyable" instead of "unlocked".

I would just like to say I am more confused now than ever before...

http://www.lbpcentral.com/forums/showthread.php?p=233888#post233888

NOT TO MENTION (No offense Zwol--it a definite winner, you know that!) First place went to a character that was about 20x the size of the shopkeeper... so what the heck are you doing further torturing these needless rules for such a fun loving contest?

Why not make a key room and anyone who wants to enter can leave their key in it and gain access to the others.... or create a level for us. Each person would copy and then add their entry. We could draw for order? ...go alphabetically until the round time limit expires or the level thermometer goes red.

As I said before, publish it TWICE!! It makes everything so much easier!!

Once as a public version and once as a locked copyable version and then we just send the keys to crazymario.
After he has copied it, we can simply delete that extra version.

You all are confusing me too... Did you not read this post or something?

Publish the level just like any ol' other level (uncopyable, in case you didn't understand)
If you are a winner, go into LBP and make it copyable for a small period of time. It's not THAT hard to do.
I understand that people will see it on the cool pages. But seriously, it's only like 5 people. The chances are low.

If you don't like my logic behind this, then do what you want. I'm not stopping you. However, this seems to be the easiest and least consuming of space on your PSN. And MY profile.

I'm surprised that virtually nobody followed the shopkeeper rule. I'm probably just going to remove the rule, since I can easily resize the character myself. Sorry for the inconvenience!


Don't mind if I sounded rude at all, I just woke up...tired....

Funny thing is I didn't even notice the shopkeeper size thing on the entries. Mine is sized within the size limit but after setting up the initial size I never even thought about it again. lol.

I think I understand crazymario's reasoning on the whole copy thing. Rather than getting him on all of our friends list (which you'd need to send him the key) or making separate key levels (which he'd have to run around and collect then go play the levels) Making the levels when published PLAYABLE by everyone and UNCOPYABLE. Until the winners are announced, then you only have to republish and change the settings to PLAYABLE and COPYABLE for a day or two. This should minimize incidents like last round where non-creative theives hijacked two of the character designs and published them as their own.....grrrrrrr!

imo - I like your solution CrazyMario.

Neither of which have been taken down yet I might add. Bit disappointed

I thought I though it was changed shopkeeper to the lion character size a bit later on in the contest. :confused: oh well.

In other words.. do it like Zwollie did in round 1! ;) I do like this way. I think that is the easiest for him as well as protecting us. Though 2 days seems like quite a long time to copy a level down, but I seriously don't care as I am just having fun and trying to improve my character abilities.. I think I did pretty good for my 2nd one ever!! :p

Good news on Billy.. He has been deleted and I have a new PSN friend and fan as the one that had him published requested me to add him. :)

Thank you for helping me Burnvictim. I have sent another message this evening via PSN asking very nicely if they would delete it but no response.

I'm not really bothered anymore so no wories really. I give in!

I tried making a robot... and failed. :p

Just a small suggestion that would make this thread a bit better (or I think so anyway). Could all the entries perhaps be copied into the first post? Its just very time consuming when someone like me wants to view the entries and has to browse throgh every single page.

Same here, I'll try to do that for this round.

Anyways, that's a really cool robot you've made there, Cog! Like Zwollie said, it is a great way to start off round number 2 out of somewhat infinity! ;D

That looks great Cog. You've raised the bar right from the off. Cheers for that lol.

I just finished my entry apart from some scenery additions but I published it in the meantime anyway.

It's called 'Rusty the Reluctant Roving Postbot'.

Set in a future sterile world where you no longer have to take your post to the postbox because the 'Postbots' come to you. Rusty yearns for the 'Good Old Days' and rebels against the system that made him a Postbot when all he wanted from life was to be a second-hand car sales bot. Visit him in his not so utopian world and see him throwing a paddy ( beware though as that's not all he's throwing ).
