Draw what your monster looks like. You can use any tools to draw your monster that you'd like. Photoshop, Pencil & Paper (& Scanner), anything. With this, submit your picture and a name for your monster, as well as a description if you feel it necessary.
Give your monster a back story. How and when was your monster born/created? Where did they come from? How old are they? What's happened over their life? How did they get to where they are currently?
How does the monster move, attack, die. What skills do they have? Any immunities? Special powers? Implement your monster into the game (any game in the series), talk about how they'd work in regards to game balance, what their purpose in the game would be, etc. Your best bet here would be to look at a monster wiki article and check out the different fields of data that go into monster development.
