Welcome to Round 2 of the Vincent van Sticker LBP PSP art contest! The concept is simple:

Create an original art piece in LBP PSP using nothing but stickers.


It should be no surprise to you that I'm crazy for stickers, so I thought I'd spread the joy and see what all of you might come up with. Like any good contest, this one has a theme, and that theme is....... (drumroll please)



Pranks or Tanks

To mark the coming of April Fools' Day, create a piece of art that represents your sense of humor with a visual joke, a depiction of a prank, or simply a portrait of a fool.

Or, if you'd rather take the high road and fly circles around the competition, create a scene centered around transportation. Create a rocket in outer space, a race car tearing up the track, or a warship blowing stuff up.



The Prizes
Now we get to the good part! The contest winner will receive his or her choice of the following: One FREE premium LBP DLC pack of the winner's choosing.* (This prize option is for NA (US and Canada) region games only. At this time we do not have the ability to send out EU or Asia region codes.)

-- OR --
One FREE month of LBPCentral donor status. No ads! Custom title! Bonus forum features! Did you hear me? NO ADS!!
Had enough? Well too bad, because there's more. The winner of this contest will also be given the option to be a judge for Round 3 of the next Vincent van Sticker contest. Your friends will be SO jealous!

* Premium LBP PSP DLC is defined as any of the available "level" or "theme" packs currently available for download, including The Gardens Level Pack, The Savannah Level Pack, The Wedding Level Pack, The Canyons Level Pack, The Metropolis Level Pack, The Sack That Time Forgot Level Pack, the Lurve Level Pack, or the Easter Level Pack. Any additional DLC of equivalent or lesser value that is made available before the end of the contest may also be chosen as a prize option.



The Deadline
The deadline for this contest is 11:59pm APRIL 10TH, 2010 Greenwich Mean Time (http://wwp.greenwichmeantime.com/info/current-time.htm). Your entry must be received BEFORE MIDNIGHT GMT on the 10th or it will be considered late. For shame!


The Rules Stickers only! No game-provided objects allowed.
No corner edited shapes. All art must be composed exclusively of stickers.
All art must be created on a rectangular piece of "basic cardboard" material. It can be any size you like, but it has to be cardboard and it has to be a rectangle. (Yes, a square by definition is a rectangle. Didn't you study in class?)
The entire piece of cardboard must be visible on screen at once. This means you cannot cover any part of your artwork with another corner-edited shape.
Follow the theme. If your artwork has nothing at all to do with the theme, it will not be considered.
You can submit up to two entries per round, although of course you can only win once per round.
Participants cannot win twice in a row. This means that if you win this round, you can't win the next one. If you won the last one, you can't win this one. You can still participate of course, but just for fun.
Judges may also enter the contest and participate, but just for fun.
To enter the contest, simply post a picture in this thread. Having trouble getting a good picture? Taffey can help! Put your art in a level, publish it, and post here - Taffey will take care of the rest. Be sure your art is fully visible by adding an appropriately adjusted camera zone.
Read the disclaimer. Yes, we have a disclaimer. Read it I say or I will send a swarm of angry leprechauns after you!



The Disclaimer
By participating in this contest, you agree that you understand that the judges will make their decisions objectively, fairly, and in an unbiased manner. You also agree that there is no place for whining in an excellent contest such as this one, and any belly-aching or other distasteful behavior will result in public mockery and being pelted with soggy apricots. Finally, by participating you agree that the point of this whole thing, win or lose, is simply to have fun and enjoy yourself. This is, afterall, a video game.



The Judges

"Vincent van Vehicle" Taffey
"Art in Motion" jeffcu28
"Court Jester" CyberSora - Winner of Vincent van Sticker Round 1



Why are you doing this?
Why not? I think this kind of contest might help push people outside of their comfort zones a little bit and try something they hadn't thought of before. I'm also eager to see what tricks everyone has up their sleeves, and of course I just like seeing the surprising and creative things people come up with. The real reason I'm doing this, however, is that I just want to see the LBP PSP community grow, learn, and have fun.



The Credits
I'd like to thank Cog for letting me *ahem* "borrow" such an excellent idea from the Leonardo da Stickerist (http://www.lbpcentral.com/forums/showthread.php?16563-Leonardo-da-Stickerist-%7E-Art-Contest-%7E-Round-I-%7E-OVER%21-Winners-on-Page-5&highlight=leonardo+stickerist) contests for the PS3. I would also like to thank jeffcu28 for the excellent banner and for getting the ball rolling on this whole contest thing - it's really fun! Finally, I want to thank ConfusedCartman for all his hard work, support, and hours spent reading my nonsensical and rambling PMs.



Anything Else?
Nope, that's it. Now run along and get stickering!

Well I'm done with mine, its called Into the Light. Its not published yet because well I got a lot of other things to do. I'll publish it by Wednesday. I'm not sure what day will that be for you guys. Oh, almost forgot can you take a picture please? My mom doesn't trust me with cameras. I have no idea why even though I'm 13 :P

TheNerd

There you go I finally published it. It's not anything too fancy.

Taffey

Hey everyone! Only 2 entries? Well that's good! TheNerd and MTVirux have very little competition for winning JUICY FREE DLC.

I'd hate for someone else to submit an entry and have an excellent chance of winning his or her choice of fantastic FREE prizes. I'm sure Nerd and Virux are quite happy to hoard all the prize awesomeness for themselves. ;)

What's that you say? You want in on the action? Well then post an entry! There's still four days left until the contest closes. :D

TheNerd

Come on guys and participate in some stickery fun! :D I have made another entry Taffy. Its called Bratwurst Power by Play_the_Nerd. This time.....it has a tank!

But the only ads I have on my screen are at the top and bottom so they don't annoy me that much!

CyberSora
04-07-2010, 10:29 PM
Oh noes! The Community has, dare I say, given up on us! :cry:

Well, I'll enter my just-for-fun entry just to help you get some inspiration. ;)

Err... this might be emberrasing for a judge to say, but can you take a picture of it Taffey? :blush:

Taffey
04-08-2010, 01:01 AM

But the only ads I have on my screen are at the top and bottom so they don't annoy me that much!But there's also a whole other list of cool stuff that comes with being a site donor, the least of which is not that you are contributing to this awesome community! (Well I will be, but under your name.) ;)




Are we allowed magic mouths ? Mine won't be visible. :confused:
Magic mouths are fine, provided they aren't visible and/or don't cover any part of your "canvas".

The judges' panel would like to thank the contestants for their amazing entries. The results will be announced soon, so be please be patient. It's a complex process. ;)

Also, I never had the chance to post this, but I thought I might as well now. I was hoping to post it during the contest, that way it can inspire you guys. But of course, I have a bad camera. So, sorry for the low quality, but here's my better-late-than-never just for fun entry. :)

I think the concept [kind of] makes up for the low quality if you ask me. ;)

Anyhoo, good luck to everybody and hope for the best. I know I'm anticipated to here the winners, too! :D
