When some days ago I saw ^Hanratty-Stock
's "My world"
popping into my inbox, someone was missing: she left out her adventurous, little monster. Shame on you, Fiona!
But maybe she didn't feature the monster in her rock world, because it simply wasn't there at that moment. Maybe it happened to be on a different rock world. I can imagine two explanations for it to be on this other rock world:
The monster either fell from ^Hanratty-Stock
's rock world, as it was roaming about daringly and suddenly discovered that the world had borders. Or maybe it was tossed from Fiona's world. Who might have done that? If you have a look at ^Hanratty-Stock
's world, you might find the answer. See how she shakes the poor boy above the abyss?!?
Anyway, the monster happened to fall onto the rocky hill of the world beneath the one of its mistress and somehow survived. It remembered that this was its very own rock world. It even found its old buddy (currently halfway hiding behind the bush), which was still alive, although very hungry. (Maybe its buddy managed to control his crave for food and instead gave the monster sort of first aid.)
The monster recovered quickly and soon afterwards it discovered a way to the other rock worlds. On the monster's world the gate had the shape of an ancient stone ring. It might look different on the other worlds, though.
From that day on the monster and its buddy lived happily on their rock world. Now and then someone would fall onto their world and if they were too hungry to wait for that to happen, the monster would sneak through the gate to one of the other rock worlds to ... organise food.
This is my submission for the awesome Rock the World Project
. Unfortunately it's closed by now, but she might reopen it again in the future. This is my very first try in making emoticons and pixel art (as I did make the characters as well as the background image pixel by pixel).
I used the mandatory Rock Template
for this deviation, which is only to be used for this project. I also read the following tutorials: Complete Emoticon Guide part 1
and Emoticon Tutorial : bases
Thank you very much *Sinister-Starfeesh
for this awesome project and template!
It was fun to do and got me to finally making my first emoticon / Pixel Art submission.
By the way: I don't know if I should apply the mature content filter on this deviation. Edit:
I totally forgot the emoticons feet. Fixed now with some reworked shading on the emoticon.
Created in GIMP.
Time: somewhere between 10 to 16 hours.
