Epic Battle Fantasy 4 is still ages away, but I thought that I'd announce this now to give everyone plenty of time.
When developing Epic Battle Fantasy 3, I asked fans to send in drawings of foes which they wanted to see in the game. Quite a few eventually made it in, here's some of the winners:
So basically I'm going to do the same thing again.
The franchise seems to have gotten a lot more attention since the last competition, so this should be even more interesting.
Drawings must be your own work.
Drawings must be original, for example, not recolored Sonic or Pokemon.
I don't mind if it's drawn traditionally or digitally.
I'll need at least one colored picture though.
It's gotta be RPG-ish. Whatever that means.
They must be work-safe. It can't be a giant penis. Uh..
It must not be human.
Preferably not very human-like at all.
Mainly because of....
They must be easy to motion tween.
This means they will be animated by just moving parts around and not redrawing anything.
So they shouldn't have too many movable parts. (Humans and spiders etc would require lots of parts).
Hell if it only has one moving part (for example, it's a rock), I won't complain.
Of course, if your foe is good enough to become a boss, I'll put in more effort.
Think of some attacks and properties for them.
Not really essential because I'll probably change a lot of them to fit the game.
Possibly think of several varieties so I can recycle the animations for several foes. For example an ice version and a fire version.
They should be different from existing foe types.
For example: No more turtles, or slimes etc.
Unless you want it to be a re-skin of an older foe, which is okay, but it'll have to be pretty much exactly the same shape.
In fact doing a re-skin of an existing foe would probably increase your chances of winning since it's less effort for me to implement.
Please post your drawing on DeviantArt or on the game's FaceBook page (http://www.facebook.com/pages/Epic-Ba ttle-Fantasy-3/121491377896263), otherwise it will be hard for me to keep track of them.
Submissions from the previous competition will also be considered again.
You can send in as many foes as you want.
Millions of people will see your foe.
You'll get a brief mention in the game's art gallery, and probably have your original drawing included as well, if there's enough space.
Competition will end after at least 4 months. Probably much longer.
Winners probably won't start being picked any earlier than that.
