Description

The resource creation event you've all been waiting for!

Make monster graphics from my 7 year old's crayon designs




On RMN's official(ly bad) twitter @rpgmaker, I posted some pictures I took of my son's monster designs. @plsvotetuckie then took one of those designs and made a pixel art version!




An idea was born.



In this short event we will:
  • Create pixel art version of these monster designs for use in RPG Maker
  • Try to decipher my son's horrible writing
  • Come up with descriptions and movesets for these monsters
  • (Optionally) Create a short battle demo
  • Submit them all to this event page


I will post the 6 designs below, along with a link to a higher resolution version. The deadline is December 4th.

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





Coulddas
(or Coulddus or Coyldday (sometimes his Ys look like Ss))


High-res version

Are those arms? Feet? Spikes? Is that his mouth, or some mouth-tentacles, or maybe tusks? Is he wearing an eyepatch?

Balbo
(or Backbe or Baelbe)


High-res version

Is he a ghost? Is that a giant tail or a gargantuan arm? He looks mean.

Watewack
(or Wutewalk or Watowark)


High-res version

Wings, perhaps? Or is he a really short caterpillar and that's a floating blade or whip in front of him? Kinda cute!

Netsop
(or Netstop or Ivetslop)


High-res version

Claws or wings? So tall, majestic and menacing!

Peelc
(or Peek or Pedl)


High-res version

His friendly face belies his terrible nature...

Yoidu Keeprel
(or Yoida Keepall?)


High-res version

The event's mascot. Of course.

BONUS!
These were found in my son's room after I cleaned it the other day. Feel free to make enemies out of them, as well! Maybe I will make a bonus achievement, too...

a'Afte
(and then a bunch of sight words...)


High-res version

A three eyed turtle, maybe?


Beenboo
(or Bee Boon?)


High-res version

A tall ghostly figure with a crooked nose, methinks.




If you submit at least one monster, you will be deemed a participant and receive a Yoidu achievement worth 5ms. If you submit all six monsters, you will receive an additional Netsop achievement worth 10ms.

Participants who submit a battle demo will receive a Balbo achievement worth 5ms.

The fan-favourite (as determined by voting after the event) will win the Coulddas achievement worth 20ms.


Unleash your inner-7-year-old and make some monsters!

update December 15th:
ULTRA BONUS ROUND!!

..:: Pinchy ::..

high-res version

Here is a monster my 4yo designed. He told me he has "pinchy arms". I'll call him Pinchy. (We are a family of RPG makers, apparently).

Anyone who designs a monster from him by Monday will get the special "Pinchy" achievement.

Okay, here are mine! :D

Coyldday


A lazy monster who rides around on a hand-shaped golem. When confronted by a hero, Coyldday will attack with ice and status magic while making dismissive gestures with its tentacles.

Baelbe



A ghost that got so envious of other monsters, he took some of their body-parts and incorporated them into himself. He can stab you with his behemoth horn, stomp you with his ogre foot, or punch you with his cyclops arm.

Wutewalk



Wutewalks were once Warlocks or Witches who used their powers irresponsibly and were transformed as punishment. They cast dark magic and hexes on unlucky heroes.

Ivetsxop



Ivetsxop is the result of a mad scientist's experiment to combine a slime, a dragon, a robot, and a human. The slime controls the body, and can ram into foes, can breath fire from its armpits and can launch missiles at you.

Pydc



The lovable medic monster who delights in healing other monsters with its nursery magic. Has syringes for hands, and can inject allies with positive medicine and inject enemies with poisons.

Yoidukeeprel



A happy monster who wants to share how awesome electricity is with everyone. Yoidukeeprel shocks others with electric volts and thinks he is doing good. He assumes fallen heroes have just passed out from happiness.


I'll try to put together a battle demo over the weekend ^_^
SgtMettool
The worst member of the DK crew.

I've done mine, as well!





Coulddas is a pretty standard monster, all in all. He shows up in unremarkable areas, but this big fatty can take a beating. You'll have to use some strong attacks to take it out before too many turns pass and it calls for help!



What a sad sight! Watewack has clearly seen better days, as his friends have punched his lights out and stuck a clown nose on him. He is very annoying to look at, and while he can't see very well, attacks that DO land will hit you for quite a bit of damage. You should use evasion skills to avoid taking too much damage.



Here comes Balbo! And he's been lifting inbetween digging tunnels. When he's stop using punching moves, Balbo hides underground to avoid getting hit, and may even use an earthquake attack! Brace yourself if he starts to dig!



Quodo Keeprye is certainly no coffee we've ever heard of. Its scalding hot brew will burn you if you don't do something to increase your fire resistance!



Netstop is back from the web and someone photoshopped his arms into lightning! Not one to let a bad situation get him down, Netstop will assault you with thunder attacks and pelt you with bullets from its snout. Some say he's a distant cousin of Eggplant Wizard, but don't bring that up at the dinner table.



Peec is a speedy gumball machine. Happy as she may be, Peec seems to shoot gumballs at you every time she tries to talk! And each colored gumball will do something different. Hope you don't get unlucky!



This is fun! I may try to do a battle demo, too.
