Description

The resource creation event years in the making!

Kids Design The Darndest Things 3
Make sprites from my 10 year old's designs


At the end of 2016 I held an impromptu event for you to create monster sprites and/or game art based on my then-7-year-old's crayon artwork. Then again in 2018 I created an event for you to create sprites from my then-5-year-old's designs. Now it is 2023 and my now-10-year-old still hasn't stopped making monster designs, so here we go again!




In this short event we will:
  • Create pixel art version of these monster/item/map designs
  • Submit them all to this event page
  • Vote on our favourite entries
  • Have some fun (not required)


The submission deadline is January 31st.

Submit your entries using the toolbar in the upper right, and then make a post showing them off in the comments below!



If you submit at least one design, you will be deemed a participant and receive a Cybarren achievement worth 5ms. If you submit at least five designs, you will receive an additional Mechaboom achievement worth 10ms. Participants who submit a monster and its evolution will receive an additional Lemoshade achievement worth 10ms. Participants who submit an item card will receive an additional Angry Gnome achievement worth 10ms. A fan-favourite (determined by a voting round after the event on a per-monster basis) will receive a Laveger achievement worth 15ms!

When naming your file submissions, please include your username and monster/item name directly in the filename. Makes things easier for me! Like "kentona_cybarren.png".

He was also designing armour with the word "PLOT" on the chest

He's going places with that level of design lmao

@Unity Thank you, Uni!! Definitely going to do more soon myself. At least the evolved form of Willantern.
Looks like my monsters when I was 10 lol Good times
And I made over 20000 of them, the first one I made looked like a Pacman Imp named CHOMOTO, maybe I meant "CHOMP MOTOR" lol, but guess what
they're not all good, I broke the Pokemon # by a longshot
Some of them look like....possessed furniture and demonic toys and amalgamations of a bunch of objects to make a weird monster, when I was in middle school, I called them SCARYMON, but then looking back and redoing a lot, it went from SCARYMON, to MYTHOSMON, which made less sense "The Lure of Monsters" seems weird, to MONSTERS OF ERDE, and finally to ANIMAMON - Monsters of the Anima. I like that name a bit better, it's spiritual in a way. I guess. My skills are so much better now.
This one was from around middleschool but I like her "ANTISPINDLER" looks like a Jhonen Vasquez character then with an alive ghost dress sorry if too big



I still have all of them saved!!

The number of signups is too damn low!
author=kentona
Yeah sure that should be fine. Be sure to show them off in the comments though!


You should start threatening people with exposure to 6 dimensional horrors or something if they dont join.

Get them motivated!
Not an artist, so I won't be joining.

But I wanted to say I really enjoyed the fakemons with the Bulbapedia-formated stat spreads. Really takes me back.

Do you think *I'm* an artist??

Can you do me a favor and submit your kid's art as a portfolio to GameFreak
I unironically like some of those better than some of Scarlet/Violet's designs.

Gonna go slice them up neatly for submission now

These are SICK, you really did the original designs justice! Love your designs for the candle and lemonade pokemon especially


Cybarren needed some love, and so I whipped a sprite up really quick!


Here's one for now! Angry Gnome reminded me of hearthstone cards so I wanted to do something a bit silly like that

I did my version, and added Shiny too. Next one will be Lavender + Lavenger :P

These are all looking fantastic!

Also, update:


The stuff I missed taking a picture of initially is now up and ready for submissions! Check out the Frozen Horsefly and crew and slough of other maps!
Someone should make a monster that's all the elements ever to exist in a game. Ever. Talk about OP lol

but wouldnt that also make it WEAK against every element, too?
I did Bedbug.
Tried using less pixel this time.
@Gourd_Clae Thank you! Glad you like the Microphones!.
unity
You're magical to me.

Oooh, love that bedbug! The red eyes under the covers are a nice touch! :D

I did the Mist and Moist evolution!

These are very good themes, and the childlike style of painting will enrich my Earthbound content.
Oh, I thought nobody have done the bedbug n.n' Seems the list is still not updated. Either way, more bedbugs!

Although I'm very busy right now, I'll try to make some stuff for this, since I really enjoyed it last time. I likely won't do a video for it though like I did last time. Unfortunately I removed my old video of this event, it's a long story. Anyway, if possible I'd like to do a map but at the very least I'll try to do a monster.

EDIT: Just finished one. I'm using a simple 3D program like I did last time.

Who's that monster? It's Cavigaul.

Just a random catgirl on the internet.

Here's the ones I did so far. I did the lantern guy and his evolution which I made very spooky. I also did the "blessed leggings" item which I gave my own spin to:

Seablessed Leggings (Version 1)


Wispanturn


Wiswrath


Edit: Made one more, the Exobot! I gave this one a cool exoskeleton for a bit of an extra touch.

Exobot


Edit 2: Made one more and updated the seablessed leggings to actually be a card.

iCORE


Seablessed Leggings (Version 2)




here's my take on the Grim Reaper as a SFAVDI boss. upon enough damage, it would unhood itself, whip out the spell hand and the scythe hand and ready for Proper Battle

(this is not a real fight sorry :( )
