A sprite of one of the first enemy designs for Super Dragonsin Saga.
The Monklopse is a rambunctious creature which makes up for it's poor peripheral vision with it's amazing pyrotechnic abilities. They often wait high in trees to launch explosive fireworks onto the hapless heads of travellers. The best method of defeating these creatures is to lower it from it's high palm tree with a juicy piece of fried chicken flesh, then attack it before it can clamber back up it's tree.
In case you are wondering, this animation was made as a birthday present for my kid brother. It's a persona of sorts for him, and has many of his personal traits. There is also an animation for the rocket being launched and the rocket exploding, but these animations are insignifigant, so I will not be submitting them.
Made entirely in ASEprite.
