When I was in elementary school ten, fifteen years ago, I used to daydream up things similar to your hunter when I was on the playground. I always tried to draw the things I imagined, but they never really turned out the way I wanted, and they looked like they were drawn by an eight-year-old (because they were). Between your friend's concept and your spriting, you are fulfilling a childhood dream of mine, and I love you for it.

Also, yes. We definitely definitely need more monster spriters!
