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.

Upon further study, the Balbo could be a sideview drawing and those are giant legs with big toes, and that appendage on the left could be a short trunk...
This looks like a cute little event.
I'm in!
this is why Kenton's the best admin on the net

Well, well, welp

Just count me and pyxel in.
Balbo is the kind of monster that would get you to try and high five him before it pulls its hand away and goes "too slow!" and gloats when it makes children cry.


Using a desaturated 8-color palette I made. How nightmarish can we make these? I don't want to scare children.
Sooz
There are at least four bad things that are not anime.

Whoaaaaaaaaaaaaa. This is so rat a tat tat Awesome.


Coulduss the Wretched.

Another one, 8 color palette. Yeah, these are fun. Expect more from me, plus the battle demo.
Frogge
"nothing can beat the power of gay"?

netstop looks like it's dabbing

edit: I can't win but this was fun to make!

Didn't attempt pixel art in the traditional sense...

the witch Coyldday


Balbo the brute


Watowark, songbird


Netsop the bashful


impish Peek


Yoida Keepall. she'll knick your stuff
LockeZ
I'd really like to get rid of LockeZ. His play style is way too unpredictable. He's always like this too. If he ran a country, he'd just kill and imprison people at random until crime stopped.

In addition to the voting, can there be a prize for the best one as decided by your son?

suzy's are my favorites so far

lets see if i can scrounge up the motivation to make a shitty battle thing in the next 10 days
