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".

Oh unbelIEVABly excited for this. Could we put them all into a little project file or something instead of just submitting sprites?

Yeah sure that should be fine. Be sure to show them off in the comments though!
Lemonade is a bland name for a pokemon-like creature (i think)


so i made this. a somewhat less bland name (i swear the evolution has a better name)


The New Lemonade (named lemoguy) has like ice cube eyes and shoes, and its mouth is a crack! (also I'm not good at making entire sprite sheets this is just concept art)
Part 2:



LEMUBRALTAK. thats Lemoshade's new name. very complex.
Name Comes from: Lemon, Umbrella, Uber, Brawl, Alt, Arctic, Attack, AK (as in AK-47...)

Now instead of icy Shoes They've got 4 Very Frigid Ice Spikes. Now with Spiky Shades and Umbrella, this cup knows how to fight!

And the straws, they've got large fruit jug cannons that shoot Ice Shards and Lemonade Rapidly!


if i had to give types to both of them..
lemoguy would be water ice, and lemubraltak an extra dark type
damn it i knew i forgot something (new filenames here

Oh it's pixel art only this time? That's fine, I'm still super hyped for this, the designs have really improved over the years. I'm scared your son's gonna surpass all of our art someday Kentona.

I wish my spriting had improved in the last five years XD

Here's my rendering of Willantern! (Awesome name, BTW!)



Are your kids cool if we use the stuff we make in our games? :3 :D
I hope I'll have time for this, seems fun.
I never really tried pixel art besides tileset making.
This would be a new experience.

This is my first entry, Microphone.

Haha, right, as usual I'm overthinking things XD

Your kids' art really brings me back! When I was little I'd also get index cards and draw monsters and equipment on them and give them stats and everything!
I tried out Willantern! I like Unity's version a lot too! Your 10 year old is very creative.

I like the cards especially lmao "Only you can protect yourself from burns" is top-tier comedy actually.

I love your Willantern, Gourdy! That's awesome, the shapes and colors are really appealing too! :DDD

I wanna do more of these as soon as I get some more time.
