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.

I adore your name.

I uh, I realize I am rather rusty in pixeling, haha. Let's see if I can knock out some over the weekend. Doesn't that sound fun? : )

Edit: Whoops .. pagebreak. *shrug* Ah what can you do. Adore this dragon avatar instead then.

Go for it, I can't be bothered to come up with battle stuff. (That's what unity's for! :3 )
great work so far!

@Craze you are free to use my sprites if you so wish!

@JosephSeraph I already love your sprites! The colours are excellent & look old-fashioned in the best possible way

@Craze: My sprites are also available for use!
I made a Balbo.

I might make more since I need to take more breaks from all of this goddamn grading.

Edit:

Balbo


Description/Movelist
Balbo

Balboes are gelatinous monsters that live underneath bleachers. They're formed from when tobacco spit mixes with stale beer, pickle juice, and nacho cheese drippings. Balboes try to fit in with their prey like ambush hunters, but they're pretty stupid, so their attempts at camouflage are sad at best. This Balbo is wearing a hat it found.

When a Balbo is ready to feed, its beefy, arm-like tongue emerges from its mouth and grabs its prey. It then flays off the skin with a paint scraper and retracts its tongue, relishing the salty treat.

Moves:
-Lurch: The Balbo jumps forward and grabs the player, disabling them until the Balbo is killed, hit with a disabling status effect, or knocked off balance with a heavy attack.
-Flay: Can only be used after the player is grabbed. Flays off the player's skin, causing severe damage and leaving them more vulnerable to poisons and other types of infections. Consuming the skin also provides a minor heal to Balbo.
-Tongue Punch: A heavy melee attack.
-Scrape: A quick slash with the paint scraper; does minor damage, but leaves players more vulnerable to poisons and other types of infections.
-Ambush: The Balbo tries to blend in. Counters all melee attacks with a powerful bite that causes infections at a low rate under normal circumstances. Ranged and magic attacks will interrupt the ambush by hurting Balbo's self-esteem (as it thought its disguise was really sweet).
For some reason making all these sprites is very relaxing.

Should have a battle demo out in a couple days.

This. THIS.
This is what I think the "Peek" might be. I interpreted part of the lines as the creautre having a long neck.

I changed the eyes a lot to make them not creepy, so...
"This creature changes its expression by changing the shape of its eyes. The smile is painted on. Its 'hands' and 'feet' can move an incredible range to attack."
Moveset:
"Change expression": Randomly gives the player a status effect, as the eyes of the Peuc have different effects.
"Kick": Kicks the player over a long distance.
"Distract attack": Three of the limbs move randomly and one attacks. Effectively reduces player's evasion to a quarter as they don't know what limb to dodge.

This sprite is brilliant.
Worth a try..
Let's see here... Net Stop!


"Stop that bus immediately!! I'm gonna late to Garden Anniversarry!!"

Description : This monster is always in hurry, either that they going to go visit their sister, or taking a bus, or just forgot their wallet at home.

Moves
- Outta my Way! : Deal damage to all party with chance of stun.
- Scolds : He will scold the player and lower player's attack.
- Tripped : Net Stop will tripped on his run and hit the player, dealing heavy damage on the player. Net Stop will recieve recoil damage.
- I'm Late! : Increase Net Stop's speed

haha i'm not really good at english

- Avi
Balbo has pointy boobs on his face.

Balbo, the elusive cousin of Bigfoot. Instead of running and hiding like his cousin, Balbo sees himself as a highwayman figure, robbing travelers and campers unfortunate enough to run into him.

Moves:
  • Stab: He knows how to swing that knife around. Can cause bleeding.

  • Roar: Deep down he is still a beast and his mighty roar lowers the party's defense.

  • Steal: He steals your money. He doesn't use it for anything, he just likes how shiny it is.
love his 90s shades

or is that a roguish mask of some kind??
