The Walls Have Ears...

... Literally!
Adarias the winner of the Food Warriors challenges you to create a monster of sorts using a household object as the main inspiration.  Try to think of something original (the killer vaccum has been done guys :P) and pick something totally out there (but still found in many houses).

    Size: 64x64 - 96x96
    Animation: Yus! (4 frame minimum)
    Transparency: If you can make a square canvas into a fluidly animated sprite WITHOUT transparency, you deserve to win hands down!  Otherwise, it's a must.

The challenge thread will have all the challenge updates. The thread is also a great place to post your WIPs.

Finally some people are starting to submit. 9 hours till deadline.... Well I'm just happy because I thought i wasn't gonna have any challengers lol.

Adarias (Level 11 Bonsai) @ 2/1/2008 19:29
oh, i found it. darn! i'd never heard of that one.

is it the similarity, or the necessary animation that kept people away?

cure (Level 11 Pixellite) @ 1/31/2008 07:46
Similar concept, but the flexibility of the more ambiguous term "monster" and the animation rule set the challenges apart.

here in Florida household animals are cockroaches :p

Adarias (Level 11 Bonsai) @ 1/30/2008 07:12
color limit is self-policing in animation, so i wont add rules

what's household animals?

FrankieSmileShow (Level 6 Manager) @ 1/30/2008 05:34
Maybe ill try something out...

Larwick (Level 8 Regional Boss) @ 1/29/2008 05:23
I wanna try this, i should. Hopefully.

cure (Level 11 Pixellite) @ 1/28/2008 21:34
Reminds me of all those japanese folk monsters that originate from neglected household objects.

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 1/28/2008 19:33
100% original guys. Notice this is an animation challenge too.

BlackDragon (Level 11 Godfather) @ 1/28/2008 13:56
Adam, from my understanding challenge entries must be completely original and not submitted previously

Can I update and animate my Stapler?

Hapiel (Level 11 Bonsai) @ 1/28/2008 12:17
Somehow I had your entry in mind when the spatula monster was named.. but I had a combination of the spatula thing and your toaster in mind XD (spatula instead of toaster, the rest your spider).

Varock Shade (Level 7 Underboss) @ 1/28/2008 10:21
Yep... It IS household animals xD anyway... I liked that one... And ISTvan's entry of the spatula monster could almost be resubmitted for this... But it was cool to do that challenge, so why not just redo the challenge...? ^^

Vic (Level 5 Sniper) @ 1/28/2008 07:01
Ooooh, sounds like a fun challenge, i'll definitively join this one

HoofFoot (Level 8 Regional Boss) @ 1/28/2008 06:03
How about color limit?

Hapiel (Level 11 Bonsai) @ 1/28/2008 04:05
looks alot like the household animals challenge.
But sounds great anyway, this size can never go wrong..

inkspot (Level 4 Button Man) @ 1/28/2008 03:53
Time to resubmit my stove?

Ak, alright, maybe I care for making another one :P
