Pixel Art Challenge: A MONSTER of a Dessert


Create a sprite of a monster made out of a dessert. For example the 'Loch Ness Cheese Cake' or 'Chocothulhu'. However, I'd prefer that you create your own kind of monster.

Also, please make sure you mention what kind of dessert your creature is made from. Have a look at this list for some ideas.

Note: The sprite must be of your own design. So, your personal interpretation of a monstrous icecream would be OK, but using the design of this Pokemon wouldn't be, as it's a dessert monster that already exists. Essentially, no directly copying someone else's design. "Flankenstein" would be fine, as Frankenstein's Monster was never made out of a flan.

Canvas Size - Max 75 x 75.
Colours - Max 25.
Transparency - Required.
Animation - Optional.

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

Hey, I didn't see it was you e.e

jeremy (Level 11 Sphinx) @ 12/3/2010 20:01

idk. Some n00ber :P

EdJr (Level 9 Nidan) @ 12/3/2010 16:42

Really? o.o

But.... When/who/where? 

skamocore (Level 11 Dolphin) @ 12/3/2010 15:09

What? That's craazy!

jeremy (Level 11 Sphinx) @ 12/3/2010 14:35

If you've got the ideas, submit more than one. One guy entered 12 once :L

EdJr (Level 9 Nidan) @ 12/3/2010 08:42

Yeah, didn't you see the rules? XD


But I think this is not so good, because even if you make more than one good piece, if others do it too, the number of votes to your pieces probably will be less than if you submitted only one.

LANDAS (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 12/3/2010 08:35

 Seriously? We can enter more than one entry?

jeremy (Level 11 Sphinx) @ 12/3/2010 03:07


twilightmoon (Level 1 Rookie) @ 12/3/2010 01:56

Can we enter more than once?

davethecross (Level 1 Rookie) @ 12/1/2010 16:24

OH NO I drew a monster of a DESERT..

Oreo0000 (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 11/30/2010 17:25

Dose the michelin man count?

Mallonee (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 11/30/2010 17:11

Would a Bantha from star wars count? I can understand if it doesnt

Edit: Nevermind, I found something else so I won't push it

SpaceSalmon (Level 1 Rookie) @ 11/30/2010 00:02

 woops. Didnt see it was a sprite challange.

littlesapphire (Level 5 Rokkyu) @ 11/29/2010 19:35

Oh hey, good idea :)

skamocore (Level 11 Dolphin) @ 11/29/2010 19:34

I guess if you wanted something gummy, you could make it out of jelly/jello/whatever.

littlesapphire (Level 5 Rokkyu) @ 11/29/2010 19:27

Well, I was thinking something gummy.  Or possibly ribbon candy.  If not,  I'm alright with that.  I just thought I'd ask :)

skamocore (Level 11 Dolphin) @ 11/29/2010 19:26

I would be very hesitant to say yes. What kind of idea did you have in mind?

littlesapphire (Level 5 Rokkyu) @ 11/29/2010 16:56

So...  does candy count, by chance?  I don't think so, but I thought I'd ask.

skamocore (Level 11 Dolphin) @ 11/29/2010 13:31

Updated the challenge text.

Update: Updated the update

Manupix (Level 11 Godzilla) @ 11/29/2010 13:06

So, Napoleon was a dessert and a monster. Fitting.

LANDAS (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 11/29/2010 12:57

 Or even better... Churocabra! Man there are soo many...

ellie-is (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 11/29/2010 06:48

 What about Chupscabra instead? You know, that brand of lollipops. Sounds more fitting. :P


But yeah nice challenge. xD

jeremy (Level 11 Sphinx) @ 11/29/2010 03:16

Those are the restrictions because the idea is to create a sprite.

Flankenstein's Monster
King Kookies

Terrible puns are a must ;P


Groogokk (Level 5 Lieutenant) @ 11/29/2010 02:28

I'm actually quite happy about the size restriction, because with 75px I know it will (probably ) take me hours rather than days to complete this. Including transparency won't be much of a problem.


Edit: btw, your excellent swamp people aren't much bigger than 75px when viewed individually! (The smaller ones at least.)

SpaceSalmon (Level 1 Rookie) @ 11/29/2010 01:41

Create a monster with only 75 max size? And  why transparency required?

slym (Level 8 Ruby) @ 11/29/2010 00:30

Oh dessert! not to be confuselined with desert.... oh ok then xD  

skamocore (Level 11 Dolphin) @ 11/29/2010 00:24

Cakes should be fine.

Groogokk (Level 5 Lieutenant) @ 11/29/2010 00:21

Nice idea. I think I will come up with something or other. Would a stollen qualify as dessert (it's really a cake, so I'm unsure).
