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.

No, I think they're dissimilar enough. Yours looks robotic for one thing. Cool shading on legs/feet!
Since there's bonus round. Are we still allowed to submit previous monsters?

- Avi

Edit : I mean the monster like Afte and Bee Bon(???)
oh! a semi-aquatic pinchy!



200%



100%

he's missing gills, so i guess he's like a frog that pinches his enemies' eyeballs???

What a rip! What kind of creep would not only grow fake butts, but would try to pass them off as the genuine article?

I can't do an entry, but I just want to say that I can't not see this emote in Pinchy's face:

Well, guess I missed my time frame, whoops! Wanted to do some vine-thing.
Congrats to all submitting something~ Looking good!

My 4yo also designed another guy last night he called "Hearta". "He's an upsidedown heart and he's really mean."

This event was great, kentona. I would happily participate in another one like it in the future.

Ah shucks- december is busy like always.
But yes, good event, good event.
Will join again 10/10

Your kid has good design instincts.
