Woah! There is already a lot here and they are all of great quality! I can't wait for the static ones though, they are super cute, I love their little bunny faces!


I also love the different designs of each including the magical cubes which form cool shapes and are really unique!


I look forward to the awesomeness of future enemies (and if they are animated then they can be heroes too!)

@Kloe Cute and funky is the aim for this first set of releases, hopefully there'll be more you like to come ;)  


@Solis They were fun to design too, I'll be sure to make more variations in the near future XD


Now then, time to round off this first week as I promote 2 designs (with variations) to animated status!


Anima

Cute and cuddly, cute and cuddly. That is the truth of these cute and friendly animal-like critters. They are so cute in fact, many commonly faint from their presence alone.


Cat Paw



Spoiler








Bunny Axe










Bomb

There is only one word that fits these globes of mass destruction and demolition. BOOOM!! 


Classic



Spoiler








Pumpkin







Watermelon

You know, I took a nap the other day and when I woke up, my two little Anima had partied up with two overseas friends to go on a quest...




Even @Justice's (Ækashics) big nasty dragon 'Demios' was unable to lay a claw on them, cute beam too strong!


I did ask Mojo if he wanted to take his coat off for this battle but he refused, saying "Don't sweat it, my coat is fire, ice, thunder and all proof, it's extra absorbent too!"





Here they are for all to team up with, face-sets included for fun. (Cat and bunny animations have been updated a little, mostly the 'guard' and 'ailments' frames)

Puffy Glaive



Spoiler








Arctic Hammer







Faces










The remaining static battlers should be up and animated by the week's end, maybe the first of the next batch of statics too if we're lucky!

Lets start off by introducing the last of the static battles to be animated, the cos-playing bunnies and the caped bears inspired by a legendary hero.


Cos-bunny

Never comfortable unless wearing costume, these master's of cosplay dominate the battlefield with their bouncing spirit.


Bounty Hunter



Spoiler








Wear Wolf







Santa










Riding Hood Bear

Inspired by their childhood hero who slew a hoard of wolfs with her bear-hands, these cubs are never without their hooded capes.


Little Red



Spoiler








Grizzly Greed







Frigid Blue










That's weak two done and dusted, now for a weekend full of nightmares about fiddly gnarled trees.

It's been a busy week for so I had to skip my mid-week update, there just wasn't mush-room for creativity...


Shroom Bandit

Mushrooms are among the most basic of all ingredients, whether it be for alchemy or culinary needs. Not all mushrooms however agree with this globally accepted fact.


Bloom



Spoiler








Sombrero










Shroom Elemenz

The most tenacious of them all. For each and every possible environment, you will find mushroom! for each and every possible casserole there is mushroom!


Nitro



Spoiler








Hypnotic







Frost










And last but not least, the Shroom Elder and Ancient Tree have each called in a friend to ease their boredom as they await their turn!

A new chapter has been revealed: Revenge of Sludge!

Order



Spoiler








Chaos










Next up, the weapons that are phantoms! or... are they phantoms that are weapons?

Phantom Weapon



Spoiler



Within every object there is said to lie a soul, the soul of the one who created them. The same can be said for these ancient weapons of war who have long since taken it upon themselves to carry out the will of their creator.


Blade



Spoiler








Axe












Mother's day has passed, and I, like any good Hawk would, drew her favorite thing; Chaos Butterfly (well technically a moth...)!





Which types of designs would you prefer to see?


So far I have been creating whatever I personally thought was cool; while this is fine for me, not everyone cares for the same things. 


For this I have started a simple poll, I've tried to cover as many concepts/archetypes as I could think off, feel free to shout out any I've missed.

Shroom Elder

The oldest, wisest and kindest of all shroom kind. There is nothing he doesn't know. There is no-one he doesn't care for. But, get on his bad side and he'll spit blinding spores in your eyes!


Grandpa



Spoiler








Magpa










Wrecking Tree

Ah, trees, such peaceful columns of rich lumber gently swinging their large heavy wrecking-ball like branches, oh, never mind...


Ancient



Spoiler








Phantom













Well that's another week gone and busted. There will likely only be a Friday/Saturday update this coming week as I plan to sit down and draw out some fresh designs with the (preliminary) poll results in mind rather than work from my archive of doodles.


And now I head off for a weekend of Darksiders and Etrian Odyssey!

Haa... Haa... Haa-hahahaha! It's alive! ALIVE I say!


...Ahem. Please excuse the wave of insanity, I think I may have blown a fuse.





While few in numbers this update, I hope the Mecha-Sentinel marks a new stage for 'upper-tier' designs.

Those pigs are awesome! I love Mr.Tophat-Pigson and the one which I'll call bacon since Pig+Fire=Bacon.


Also that "Mecha-Sentinel" thingy looks awesome! I would NOT wanna get into a fight with him, have you SEEN how pointy his hands are  :o  , he'd probably poke someone's eye out!!! 


He looks as if he's futuristic yet hasn't been maintenance for a while, which is a cool look!


Also I forgot to comment on the "Forest" update which was also awesome, I think the Wrecking Trees are made of boss material, and wood of course. (♪ He came in like a wrecking tree! ♫)


The Shroom elders are awesome, I can just imagine them giving me the most deadly of status effects, while being disguised as normal mushrooms! You'd have to be careful to watch out for Shroom Elders while picking mushrooms! There are also the amazing other Shrooms, at least one for ANY occasion, even on an iceberg! Someone could even create an entire Shroom dungeon! The amount of variety is stunning!!


The Phantom Weapons are awesome, I can just imagine them in a haunted Blacksmith's or fighting with a mimic in a dungeon! Or even assisting you if you equip a "Phantom Weapon" The perfect weapons for any aspiring evil lord!!


The sludges are really cool, I love how one is order, and one is chaos, it could make an interesting fight when they assist each-other! Such an awesome dynamic!


And as always, the Anima and Cosplaying-Bunnys and even teddy bears, are literally the cutest EVAH!! I love em! Also just a note to everyone, all of these "Monsters and Enemies" don't HAVE to be enemies, you can use them as actors, especially the Anima!

Well, It is 4:23 here! Time to sleep!
Good night y'all! <3 :rock-right:
Anybody else ready for MZ Ace?
For scrolling of large maps... Minimap, or very small zoom?
Sometimes you think you know people, then the next thing you know it's below freezing outside, and they're falling from the sky. And no two are exactly alike.
