Jop's Headless Familiar


FanOfDracula's PokemonSkull
Throws bones that hit enemies this produces hearts


Bloo's Weapons Master 2nd place
It'd be about half the size of a Human, and can shoot its weapons around like P EW.
It can also zip around to enemies and kinda blitz with its swords. Once it's leveled high enough it can duplicate for a short period of time and attack multiple enemies.


Dracula9's Wood Card 1st place
"The spirit of an eons-old deity from an ancient civilization, contained within a corporeal form. Protects the player by using forbidden and unspeakable dark magics to slaughter any and all foes that would threaten its master.

...those poor fucks have no idea what nightmares await them."



FeRcHuLeS's Master Bat 3rd place
A giant bat capable of killing a grown-up man by its own.


FeRcHuLeS's Master Eagle
This loyal creature fights even if its lord died.


FeRcHuLeS's Master Ball Eye 3rd place
Magically animated being that hits as hard as an iron ball.

You have opened the gates of Fire, of Wood, of Stone. You have found the nth Gate, and broken its threshold. The horrors within shall be unleashed.

Hello! For this contest, are the sprites required to be completely made from scratch? If not, can I ask what the guidelines on acceptable entries are?
This prompt is giving me a bunch of good ideas, and I'd love to enter.

To answer your question, yes, the sprites have to be your own.
If you are having trouble, you can use a base sprite to help you out. But the final product must look like it is an original.

I would like to enter the competition with the flying enemies for Spectral Interlude I'm retouching, they aren't going to be familiars in the game but lesser enemies, is that allowed?? My main goal as I stated before is not to change their original look too much (but 2 of them are a lot different now).

I'm sure it is OK since familiars can also possibly be enemies.
