Hiya Dragon Quest fans! It's new contest time again, and this one will allow you to tap into the deep well of your imagination and pull out some fun and interesting submissions.

Your objective in this contest is to design a new monster that you would like to see added to Dragon Quest X. Your design can come in the form of a drawing, a sprite edit, a 3D model, lego, clay, bead craft... you get the idea. Pretty much anything goes.

Submission Guidelines:
1) Limit of three entries per person
2) Designs must be sufficiently distinct from existing designs so as to be considered a new design and not just a palette swap
3) Sprite edits that consist of borrowing and merging elements from existing monsters are fine, but will be rejected if the extent of the edit is not significant enough
4) Send your designs to me by PM so we can keep you anonymous while voting
5) Deadline for submissions is Monday, March 19th 2012 at 10:00 AM EST

Let's have some fun with this. I hope we get some really cool designs. I'll post the designs to this thread as I receive them (without revealing the source).

Special thanks to Woodus for his sample monster shown above (named "Demolition Squad").

I hope I can find something original though. There are so many monsters and I don't know all of them!

I was thinking I might pass this one up, but I sketched an idea that excited me, and I think could make it into the contest (I hope).

Do we have to have a name for it? Or can it just be a monster without a name for now?

It doesn't need a formal name, but it should have some unique identifying short description so that when we are voting for it, we know what to call it. I don't think the naming should come into the judging at all though.

Ruesen, I think you can still submit something on clay or Lego. Or you could team up again.

I made some new, although crappy sprites. Now, when I send them in, I need to send the IMG coding to you, right?
