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.

Here's another pixel art abomination from me! :D
General Coulddas

I'll try to finish the other monsters as well.

EDIT: Balbo's also done.

Balbo

Decided to draw this one using the silhouette technique. It worked out better than I expected.
Sooz
I yelled at a sandwich the other day because it didn't have wifi.

Sadly I don't have the time to finish everything. :( I wanted to do the new guys. :(

Screw you, real life!
Even though it doesn't look quite the same without a tail, I had to do this.

Choosing who to vote for was hard! So mych good.
I am slightly confused; do we vote for only one drawing, or one of each character?
I think there is only one vote in total. And yes, there are so many good candidates. Not to mention I love how my critters came out as well <3

Looking it up tho, it seems like there is only a tick for the artist box, so no drawing in particular but rather the artist?

Kentona, can you enlighten us, please? : )

If you go to the Vote page (the link to it is in the upper right of the page), I see a radio button beside every single image, so you can vote for whichever single image you like best.

However, I hope to compile the results by character to showcase them.

And feel free to make a post about which characters/artists you liked best!

Archstone, my battle demo/minigame has been released!

Hope you all enjoy it! May make a game page for it in the future.
Finally got a chance to play!

This is a fun game, and you did a lot with the combat and the bosses, and the game keeps you on your toes!...
...Despite these small issues, I really enjoyed the game and liked the characters and the battles! ^_^ Very nice! :DDDD


Awe thanks Unity! It means a lot that you checked it out and gave it a critique. I'm really glad you enjoyed it!

Also, THANK you for the comment regarding animations! I was looking through the script trying to see if there was something I could do to prolong the battle text, and I never thought simply to make the animations longer so the text doesn't just flicker on and off the screen. That's a great solution!

I also think you're spot on with the music. I like my battle theme for Coulddas most of all, but I think I need to find some better tracks in general. I think Darkest Dungeon is a great example!

Now I just have to find some royalty free pieces like that.

Thanks again for your review! Looking forward to playing your game demo this evening.
This event was great! Here are my top five in random order:


Pink Pigeon's Peelc


Sooz's Watewack


Suzy Cheesedream's Beeboon (my favorite!)...


...and Nestop


Pau230's Coulddas

You're magical to me.

Thanks! Yes, Darkest Dungeon has really spot-on great music for that kind of thing! Best of luck on finding music that fits ^_^

Also, my game is extremely silly, just as a head's up XD
