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!
thanks! actually i want to make it more robotic (especially on the head part) but i suddenly got lazy.

I, too, suffer from Sudden Onset Laziness, or SOL.

I may redraw some of the monsters I did for this and put them in Weird and Unfortunate. kentona, should I put "some monsters inspired by kentona's 7 year old son's designs" in the credits, or would you rather me put something else? (or nothing, if you'd rather he not be associated with a really weird RPG? XD)

I love this idea, and they would fit perfectly in Wutai WaUTaH. Though, maybe reference the event-page for the inspiration behind their design?
Hey, awesome! Balbo thanks you for this greatest honor.

If you would like to adopt a Balbo, please go to your local baseball stadium and look for the dark places forgotten by man.

I can't Like posts here and this isn't quite appropro for a tagline so I must settle for quoting it.
