    Default LBPC Eye Candy (Non-Crown Contest)

    The publishing window is now closed
    Thanks to all who've entered, we look forward to playing your levels.

    Here's a montage of Eye Candy Screenshots from LBP2 and Vita




    Eye Candy!

    Hey everyone! We’re back with a new contest, not a Crown contest this time but something smaller scale and fun. There are so many gifted artists and designers in the Community and we wanted to see what you could all do when freed from the constraints of having to create gameplay. So this contest is intended to showcase that artistic talent.

    Create a scene, purely visual without any gameplay. Use a single camera to show the entire scene all at once. Design your scene with maximum attention to detail - this is a chance to spend the entire thermometer on just a small area! This contest is for both LBP2 and LBP Vita entries. An LBPC pin and a $20 PSN card (or its nearest equivalent in other currencies) will be awarded to the winner of each category (i.e. LBP2 and Vita).

    Chose from one of the following themes and let your imagination run wild:

    - Architecture
    - Fantasy
    - Historical
    - Industrial
    - Mythology
    - Nature
    - Silhouette
    - Space

    Updates

    A level without gameplay: You are allowed to have the player spawn and then walk a short distance to reach the scene, however this should be very simple and we will only judge the fixed camera scene.
    Also, the player can automatically enter a Controllinator seat. This can be made invisible if you don't want the player to be seen at all.
    Or, you can make the level a Cutscene. This way the player won't even spawn.

    Moving parts: The scene can have some movement. Say you wanted to put a flock of birds flying by in the background, that would be fine. There is no point putting in movement just for the sake of it though, if you use it, try and make it add something to your scene.

    What we're looking for is for you guys to go all out on detail and atmosphere here. You are unlikely to have to worry about thermo so think about all those little touches you could put in. They will all add up to creating a 'Living Scene'.


    Rules

    • Create an original previously unpublished level based on one of the contest themes.

    • The level should not have any gameplay (except walking a very short distance to reach the scene).

    • One fixed camera showing the entire scene

    • All entries must be playable in either LittleBigPlanet 2 OR LittleBigPlanet Vita.

    • You can only enter one level. This means you must choose to enter either an LBP2 or a Vita entry NOT BOTH.

    • Publish your levels by 11.55 pm GMT on Sunday November 17th and include the text “(LBPC Eye Candy)” in the title of the level

    • Post LBP.me links to your levels in this thread, so we’re sure not to miss them!

    • You can only submit one entry.

    • After the deadline, do not republish. Levels republished after the deadline will be disqualified. Exceptions may be made for quick fixes with respect to level titles, description, badges, but only with the prior consent of the contest crew. If you need to request an edit, please post in this thread and send me a PM.

    • Last but not least, have fun, play fair and respect other creators, LBPC members, Judges and Staff! (Contestants banned from LBPC at any time during the period of the contest are automatically disqualified from it)


    Also a little Handy FAQ for you all

    Q: Can I enter a previously published level?
    A: No.

    Q: Can I enter a level I already have on my moon, but hasn't yet been published?
    A: Yes.

    Q: Once I've published my entry, can I republish it?
    A: You can republish it during the publishing window as many times as you like, but mustn't republish after the deadline.

    Q: When will the judging begin?
    A: The judges may take a look at some levels prior to the deadline, but the judging proper will not begin until after the deadline.

    Q: When will the results be posted?
    A: We can't really give any accurate answer to this, but it will be no more than a month after the judging begins.

    The beauty of this one is that it should be quite quick to build. Hours / days rather than days / weeks

    I have two questions:

    1. What do you mean by silhouette?

    2. Do biomes (scientific word for environments) count under nature?

    I can figure that this contest is to get people into trying the 3-D glitch. If that's so, I'm on it!

    Hey Apple


    An entry depicting a biome would be fine.

    By silhouette we mean an entry using silhouettes in the style of levels like this one from thespacemonkey187.

    The contest isn't just about using the 3D glitch. Any kind of visuals would count, even something made using stickers.

    Question ! Does the scene should be static like a picture, or more a dynamic scene with moving stuff, animations... ?

    I'm loving this idea. For someone who is currently really really short on time due to school, this is perfect.

    Btw, any reason why there hasn't been a crown contest in a while? Usually when one contest ends another begins, yet the last one seems to have been the Tearaway contest over a month ago.

    No, there's no limit on the number of layers. :)

    Great contest idea!
    Here is my entry. It's nothing special just a few selfmade (animated) stickers out of my upcoming CartoonStory.
    I hope everything is according to the instructions. (14x40 Suqares used )

    Expect an entry from me! I will have a lot of fun with this, especially because it gives us more room for creativity. Before, I would never finish a contest entry because I couldn't do what I wanted. It was always against the rules. Now I can enter because this contest is a lot broader. Good luck to everyone who enters!

    I think I'll enter this, it looks pretty cool. If I happen to win, can you give the money to the runner-up? I don't really want/need it
