LBPC Eye Candy!


After a serious amount of agonising, nail biting and general umming and ahing, we have finally managed to come up with a result! We have been so bowled over with the quality of the levels that we wished that we could somehow choose almost all of them as the winner! You wouldn’t believe the number of posts in the contest judging forum which basically said “Aggh! I’ve had to leave out so many awesome entries!”.

The winners and runners up will all get LBPC pins and the overall winners in the LBP2 and Vita contest will get a PSN card too. We're also planning to produce a winners hub and a video of the winning entries.

Finally we'd like to announce that we have a new member joining the Crew, hyperdude95! Thanks, hyper, for helping judge this contest and welcome to the Crew!

Anyway, without further ado, here are the results!


The Winner!

Well done too to Destiny_Waits. This was an utterly charming entry. Incredible scene with a lot of details and the fore -and background effect worked very well. Again it looked stunning and managed to convey so much in one canvas.

Runners Up

We also wanted to honour 4 runners up with a pin each because each of them came so close to winning in their own right! From the wonderful eeriness of funkystache's street, the marvellous machinery in ITARBOYI's factory, the fantastic animations in Luos's Lightmare to the jewel like beauty of shadowcreeper's girl with her flute, they were all absolutely outstanding entries!

ZedCocoZza blew all the judges away with his Frozen Twilight entry. Zed managed to create an incredible silhouette scene overflowing with atmosphere and detail. Frozen Twilight transports the viewer back to an ancient time, where deep in a prehistoric forest, two giants prepare to square off. Truly EPIC!

Joint Second

Yah, just want to echo what everyone else has said. I know judges always say it was tough making the final decision but this contest was in a league of its own. There were so many great entries and the contest just had such a lovely atmosphere that it was incredibly hard singling out just a handful of the entries. We all really hated disappointing creators whose entries were so good! Seriously there were so many great entries that we haven't even been able to mention. After the first round of judging we still had around 70 levels in the short (!) list...and that's just for the PS3 side. You guys outdid yourselves and it was a privilege playing all these awesome levels. I just wish more of you could have won!

12-15-2013, 07:07 PM
Wow! These were some amazing entries and I can understand the terrible emotions every single one of you must have faced as you all looked at each one! It is true that choosing a single ultimate winner was probably the hardest decision here, but I'm glad you guys came to a conclusion!

Congratulation and thank you to every participant, runner-up, and winner! Everyone, however, was a winner in my book with each of your entries! A congratulations also to hypedude95 for now now being a part of the Contest Crew! And a final Thank You to the amazing Contest Crew who had to face probably the hardest challenge in this contest! :D

I hope to see just as many entries in the next LBPC Eye Candy Contest! ;)

12-15-2013, 08:07 PM
Congratulations to those who did win. I only joined to play, not to win.

12-15-2013, 08:14 PM
Congrats to all winners and runn-ups!

BTW, I noticed that most of the Vita winners are silhouette entries. Hmm ... coincidence?

12-15-2013, 08:18 PM
Congrats to everyone who won and runner ups. Now finally I can delete my dump heap to open up a free level spot.

12-15-2013, 08:49 PM
Even though I did not win, it was a great experience! I enjoyed playing the entries that I came across. If anything, it got my name, Loafsy, out there. I plan on entering the LBN Quest for Awesome contest; should be a good time!

12-15-2013, 08:59 PM

This was a great idea and congrats to not only the winners/runner ups/ and honorable mentions, but congrats to everyone who participated. This was awesome to view so many entries and that screenshot of them that has all pf em on one page was phenomenal!!!

12-15-2013, 09:08 PM

Thank you all in the contest crew for chooing my entry as a runner-up. It is very much appreciated!

Congratulations to the winners, runners-up, honourable mentions, and everyone who entered. Also, congratulations to hyperdude95-good job buddy!

I think the judges deserve a special thanks of thier own. I have nothing but respect for you all for taking the time to keep the LBP community together with your competitions, and support. I keep hearing the participants out did it-but if it wasn't for your holding , and judging the contest none of these creations would have come into existence. Thank you all very much ^_^ !!

Congrats to the winners. And thanks to hundreds of players for participating and creating amazing artwork.

Congratulations, It's' awesome to see some old names from a few years ago still submitting entries. *cough* Luos_83 *cough*

Heck, I love seeing that one of my favorite games still has the awesome community that does contests for us after 2 years of this game being out, it really shows how dedicated some of us are to this game and I think LittleBigPlanet will go a long way from here. :)

01-07-2014, 12:39 PM
