The Circadian by yoshiunity The Circadian by yoshiunity
Phew! Finally finished this thing just in time! Been working on this for a week... Anyway, I just wanted to make sure that everything sync'd up with the rules.

So many ideas went through my head for the contest, but I decided to mix it up with a time themed level; The Circadian! It's almost Father Time-esque in a way. It's a level that's all about the platforming experience. There's also some optional pathways and methods for extra stuff, so it won't feel so linear.

One thing that stuck out about the contest was how the judges will judge the entries. More noticeably, how fun it looks and how creative we use the textures given. They wanted the texture used creatively, well give them what they want! :D Everything with structure in this picture was made with the textures! The hourglasses, the calender wallpaper (Which was made with the factory and Davinci world pictures; sandwiched between two papercraft textures! Just pointing that out because I can't believe that actually worked!) , pipes, all of it. Counting the burn, dodge, painting edging, numbers on the small clocks and fog effects. Textures basically makes around 85-90% of the picture.

Keeping my fingers crossed! And good luck to everyone that enters! We're all going to need it! :D (Glad I'm not in the judges shoes!)

Thank you very much! :)

I definitely wanted this so be a level, first and foremost. Something simple enough for newcomers of the game, yet, complex enough to have advance users interested it replaying it more than once.

I also wanted the artstyle and design to look like something that'll look great on the PS3. (Sure, anything will look great on the PS3. This is in more of a sense for the system to flex it's muscles.XP)

And yeah, I guess Sony could do that for this level. :)

Awesome work! I was reading the other comments on this piece and just wanted to tell you that if you get the chance to play Little Big Planet or LBP2 you should. There is a great community and lots of cool stuff and player created worlds to explore!

yoshiunity Featured By Owner Feb 22, 2011  Student Traditional Artist
Thank you! And believe me, I do know about the awesomeness the LBP2 can create. And also the peaceful community of players. I've seen levels, on youtube, that seem more professional than actual retail games. Heck someone actual made a level that was SPOT-ON with the classic Legend of Zelda game.

It's creativity that I look forward to experiencing. And hopefully, this contest will help me do it so much easier. :)

Hey, yours is REALLY good. It definitely deserves to be in the top three!
:iconw00tplz:GO FOR THE GOLD!:iconw00tplz:
Just something I heard from my friend :iconprosaix:, it's been going around that only dA judged the contest, nobody from Media Molecule (who made LittleBigPlanet). There are certain semi-finalists which I don't even think should be there, but whatever, that's how the dice roll.
I am a bit upset that mine didn't make it (considering all the time I spent on it), but on the bright side I'm free to fix any mistakes I made on it now, and there's no chance now that I'll compromise the entry by editing its description :XD:

Actually I think you could. The calendar background was actually made with pretty basic steps. Plus, you definitely have the imagination for it, so I bet you could do something like this! :)

Thanks man! :D

I doubt it. Assuming you drew all of this stuff, it would take me months to actually color it if I actually made a sketch. I'm a heavy procrastinator, and backgrounds are one of my weakest subjects.
Reply
:iconyoshiunity:
yoshiunity Featured By Owner Feb 19, 2011  Student Traditional Artist
Actually, I didn't draw much of it. :P Besides the outlines and a little shading.

The contest wanted the contestant to use previously made textures in the picture. All I did is use them for the majority of the picture. After that, I just burn, dodge, use paint to bring out the outlines a bit, and shaded some to add more of an effect. I think you could have done it in the time I did, dude.(Especially with how much your skills have spiked overtime. O_o) Because backgrounds are not a strong subject of mine either, unless it's my main focus.

And procrastination... Heh, dude. I too am a procrastinator. :P

I'm not as up and on it with the LBP series as say, D-Rawrz or Smash or D-Man are...but I have to say, this is pretty impressive. o.0; Not sure really what else is going on here so please excuse my lack of much of a content-filled comment, but yeah...all in all you sure deliver no matter what it is.

Keep it up YU, and best of luck. :)
