Guess what kids! It’s October, that means Halloween is upon us! And what better way to celebrate Halloween then by having an entire month dedicated to the monsters we hold most dear to us!
Deques and Kassidy.
I mean, the Seiken Densetsu monsters!

Just what does this so called “Monster Month” entail? Well, each day of this month you can check the site and find a full page of monster sketches by me! I’ve been in a bit of a drawing slump, so this is a good way for me to get to doodling and also update the site, awesome!

Here is today’s sketch of some Rabites!

Also, there are some behind the scenes updates going on at the Bestiary, read on to learn about it.

Ok guys, here is how it goes: The Bestiary index was way too big, it was at about 85 KB of solid text! So I’ve made the index page only show the monster family groups I made up now, but you can still access the sortable stuff if you want.

Speaking of sortable, what I am doing to each Bestiary page is adding an anchor tag to each and every monster so that the index and other bestiary pages can all interlink to each other really nicely! But that’s only when I get done updating them all.

As it is going now, I’m going to be pretty much adding to it randomly here and there because my files are in a strange order. Eventually it will get out to an alphabetical based order, but for now it is kind of random.
The updates aren’t anything huge, I won’t get to adding sprites or adding monster descriptions for a while, first I need to add all of the monster names to the list. This is going to take a long time and it isn’t of any use to anyone really, but it forces me to work on the Bestiary, something I have been neglecting lately.

So that’s the rundown!

    Those rabites are awesome. Good luck with the Bestiary. It sounds like a lot of work.

    Indeed they came out great! You got pretty much all of the classical rabite attacks and faces. I hope your updates come out as planned. Best of luck to you!

    That mean you’re going to monsterfy us? I’m game. 😉

    Like the little Zero Wing reference. Well done.
