I was planning on making a cakeday puzzle like I did last year, but let's say I'm a bit late for that, so it's gonna be a Xmas puzzle! It will last untill the 25th.
I used to draw a lot as a child and some people used to say I had potential, but while growing up, for reasons I still don't totally comprehend, I've stopped drawing altogether. Only recently I started drawing again from time to time, when I feel like it.
What you'll see here is not perfect, I lack practice and technical knowledge, most of all when it comes down to draw human faces or coloring, but I think it's decent overall. If you find some color choice odd, consider that I'm colorblind (if the light is not optimal, I have problems descerning light green from yellow and some shades of brown from red) and that my scanner darkened the colors a bit for some reason. Anyway I'm open to any sort of criticism.
you'll see a series of drawings portraying different characters. Each character is the result of other two "famous" characters merged together (let's call them "source characters" from now on). The source characters are from videogames, comics, books, TV shows and/or movies (but almost all of them ended up in videogames anyway).
You have to:
That's it. I hope it is nothing too weird/hard/nonsensical/stupid for you. If it's the case, I'll try to help a bit depending on the number of solvers.
I had to divide them into two batches because ITH has a 20 questions cap; there's a total of 31 characters (15+16).
The prize for solving the 1st part is a train with my HB leftovers from the last few months (some of them are region locked, sorry for that);
the prize for solving the 2nd part is Disco Elysium.
You have access to both parts right away:
1st part [ENDED]
2nd part [ENDED]

Important, choose wisely.
P1 / Q14 had me stumped...until I realized I was just missing an article in front of the name. Derp.

Thanks! I was losing my mind on that one!
Bump bump! It's more difficult than it looks like, but I loved the challenge. Finished the first one, now onto the second!
These are really clever and fun, Dog! :D
Bump for some fun puzzles :).
Solved the first one! Thanks for the fun puzzle, these combos are pretty funny
Bump. Part 1 Question 3 is resisting. I'll get the proper spelling at some point.
Damn this is hard! So much fun though!
Really hung up on P1 Q3 - green? not blue?
edit: got it, but only after realizing it wasn't about the color.
Stuck on this one as well but pretty sure it Green~
Now I'm stuck at Naughty Dog + Galep.
I got the Naughty Dog character but WTF is a Galep???
Stuck on 1-4, 1-13 and 1-14 for now but not giving up. I'll try again with a clearer head after I get some sleep
Real cool puzzle bump!
Aaaand bump for the second one. 2-15 was tough, but this was fun. Thanks!
Bump for the 1st part. =)
bump for part 1!
I'm not sure if I should be complimenting you for the super good drawing skills (Are you sure you're color-blind? Because I see absolutely no problem with the colors anywhere in either drawing.) or slapping you for the horrible pun-sounding names that resulted from some of those combos.
Anyway, I'm out of ideas (and being-awake-ness) so I guess I'll come back tomorrow to try some more.
Only have Part 1, Question 3 (know who they are, but I can't seem to mix their names the right way) and Part 2, Question 2 (figured out only half of it) left.
I'm growing old and I'm starting to embrace the "dad jokes" mentality, I guess ;)
Anyway, I'm sure I'm color-blind. It doesn't show much because luckily my gf made me notice when I used wrong colors and I managed to cover them up with the right ones.
Bump for "Solved yesterday but I didn't bump then because someone had just posted 10 minute before me.".
Insert creative "bump" post here.
Spaaaam I mean- Bump.
Great fun! It reminded me of answer smash on Richard Osman's House of Games
I'm not familiar with that show, I'm going to check it.
Done with part 1! Now I've only got the orange "final monster hunter fantasy world" thing left. I'm sure I've got the Monster Hunter part right and I have a guess as to what the Final Fantasy part could be but I'm not really seeing how the names can be mixed so I'll have to keep looking.
That kind of monster has different names depending on the game you consider in the series. The one used here needs eggs to make >.>
Thanks for the hint, got it now so that makes me done with the whole thing. Thank you for the puzzle, it was very fun to look into the solutions and many of the names made me laugh (the naughty dog + dc one is my favorite probably) and your art is very cool too!
Bump for solving both parts!
Finally finished both. Thanks for the interesting puzzles.
I'm also stuck on part 2, question 2. (╯°□°）╯︵ ┻━┻
Nvm. I was combining the wrong monsters. ┬─┬ノ( º _ ºノ)
Bump for solved!
Finally done with part 1. Damn that question 14 had me stumped for lack of article lol
Onto part 2
Edit: wow this is even harder. I know next to nothing about console games so all the nintendo, pokemon(?) things... hm...
that looks really cool, but is too hard for me
Bump for part 1!
Bump for solved! I found part 1 much harder than part 2. Thank you for the brilliant drawings and the fun puzzle!
Guess I won't be finishing Part 2. It's just way too opaque for me. I like guessing games but I draw the line at telepathy since my telepathic skills suck lol
Good fun with Part 1 and great job drawing!
I'd love a solution to be posted once the GAs are done, if you don't mind because I like to learn from my failures.
Let me know which questions made you quit, please. I'd like to lower the "telepathy" factor to a minimum. Anyway I will post the solutions after Xmas ;)
That's very cool. I haven't given up really and I managed to solve 5 more but I'm still stuck on the Monster Hunter/Final Fantasy monsters. I have very limited knowledge of Final Fantasy (I know, I'm one of the weirdos who never played any of the games, I intend to correct that) and no amount of googling has helped me so far.
I have the Monster Hunter World monsters (I think?) but I can't find the other ones.
I want to say again really good job on the drawings, it's not your drawings that stumped me for sure. Beautiful work.
(although I stumbled totally by chance on Question 13 answer when I was not looking at all for the answer anymore and I would never have found it just by googling. Coincidences are so odd sometimes)
Here there's a hint that may help you with your google search.
These are amazing :)
I got everything except for part 2 Q2. I have no idea what the square enix part is.
Here there're a few hints referring to that specific question
Already got it, but thanks anyway :)
