Monster Concept: Dandy Lion

Was screwing around with a drawing, and remembered about a open source Pokemon project.

So here's what I was making:



Originally, I was trying to draw a sunflower, like Otenko from Boktai, but it looked too much like a regular lion.  So I switched the colors around.

Name: Dandy Lion
Type: Wood

Description: (Unnecessarily stolen from Carnival of the Animals)
The Lion
The lion is the king of beasts,
And husband of the lioness.
Gazelles and things on which he feasts
Address him as your highoness.
There are those that admire that roar of his,
In the African jungles and velds,
But, I think that wherever the lion is,
I’d rather be somewhere else.

- Lions' Tooth:  Wood based attack?
- Claw: no element
- Roar: status effect?  Debuff?
- Insert other plant related attack here... poison pollen?

Misc: The creature should be concerning of his appearances, because he's dandy!

Not so sure about his evolved forms.  Was thinking of making his head start as a bud, like a real flower.  And when he evolves, he blooms/ flowers!

What do you think?

I love this concept! The description, type, and techniques all look great too! I think the sprite itself is a great start, but would need some alteration to work with Tuxemon. Right now all front and back Tuxemon sprites are 64 x 64 pixels. The Creating Creatures wiki page has all the size information for the monster sprites.

I think a little shading could also add some detail to the design. "Fruitera" has a good example of some of the shading that fits in Tuxemon:

Here's a prevolution for Dandy Lion that I came up with: Dandicub:

Looks great! Did you have any ideas for Dandy Lion as well? I really like Professor Green's concept but currently doesn't quite fit what I'd expect Dandicub to evolve into.

No ideas yet - so someone else should jump on it if they have some ideas.

I wanted to "enhance" Dandy Lion but... I have bad news.
My PC died on me and I won't be able to make proper pixel art (also my motivation is at zero since my PC wont turn on)

Maybe one day I will be able to afford me a new PC, until the I hope someone will take care of Dandy Lion.

If I get over the death of my PC, I'll try to make some pixel art on the PC of my girlfriend. But until then, I think I'll be a little inactive hmm sorry about that.

We'll meet again, don't know where, don't know when. But I know we'll meet again some sunny day!
