Sharing some DQ projects

Post by AerynB »

I've finished a few monsters from Dragon Quest 1 that I thought I would share. I think they look pretty good and this forum seems like a place where people would appreciate them. :)

I used sprites ripped from the mobile version and PC Stitch to make patterns and match colors.

Hey, those look really nice. :) Just finished playing through the Super Famicom version of DQ1 a couple of days ago (no, I can't read Japanese, but why let something like that stand in my way :) ), so those sprites look very familiar. Any plans to do monsters from the rest of the series?

Yes. I like the simple designs like the golems and knights. I might continue with my Halloween theme and do the rest of the skeletons (scrapper, soldier, swordsman, dark skeleton, and sekerleton), maybe the 3 ghost monsters, and either the magicians from dq1 or dq3 (or both 😉).

I also want to do some "food" monsters for my kitchen, like the onery onion from dq6, dancing carrot, funghoul, cruelcumber, and the capsichum and paprikan from dq8. I'm really bummed that the dq8 monsters aren't technically sprites. I have to figure out how to design them myself into small enough patterns.

Oh and the slimes... I think the kings and jewels would be nice, like gem slime, platinum king jewel, darkonium slime from dq9, and slemperor from dq7. Maybe I could make it a huge pattern with various healslimes, bubble slimes, and normal slimes filling in some of the empty space.

And definitely more dragons. I want to do the jade dragon, red dragon, and rashaverak from dq4, the great dragon, black dragon, and noble dragon (from dq5 and 11), and maybe the serpent dragons from dq3.

I've got ideas for the next couple of years here! 😅

Pre-back stitching.

The gloves and boots look a little weird in person. Not sure I like the green-brown color PC Stitch picked for the shaded area. But it's not so bad in the picture. It started looking better when I added the black cross stitches. I hope it will look even better when I finish the back stitching.

This is my current project.

I'm pretty proud of the design. I found an old frame with a 8.5 by 11.5 opening, but my original design was going to be 13.5 inches wide. Fortunately, I figured out how to move the monsters around and shave off 2 inches so they'd all fit in the frame. :D It won't be finished by Halloween, well... maybe... I do have 3 1/2 weekends left.

The monster sprites are from DQ I mobile but the names are from the NES version. The mobile names are okay, but I have a nostalgic connection to the old NES names. :)
