REEEEEEOOOOOOOOWWWWRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!! Never fear, Tomkyou is here to save the day, save your sardines and save all hugs and kisses from The Ladies. I'm here to masking all your cots and everyone will be blown away like a reaction of cesium metal with water!

Original? You betcha! My last name is "Original," and my middle name is "Adonis." Tomkyou Adonis Original, has quite a ring to it huh? Maybe YOU can be the next Mrs. Original!
And don't give me that Furuba nonsense, as far as I can tell the creator stole my concept... uh, stole ME, and made lots of money off me. I'll have my way with him/her/it after clawing the heck out of their furniture.

Full of color? You bet I'm colorful!!! Everything about me is colorful, even my vomit makes Monet's paintings look monochrome.

And that's right, animals are cute. Humans are okay, I suppose... OK for grinding down and using as pavement! The male Humans anyway, the females are OK for being my admirers and go-go dancers. RWWWWWOOOOOOWR!

This sounds like fun. XD I'm generally inexperienced when it comes to drawing animals, so mine will be the human entry, probably (or I'll take on the tarantula idea. XD But no, I'm mostly arachnophobic. XD). XDD If I can think something up, though, I'm definitely in on this! :D

YAAY RADDIE CHAAAN!!!

Let's do our best! Mm kay?

I was wondering...would it be bad if we drew like a group of mascot friends? Or do we really just want ONE mascot?

EDIT: I take it we are supposed to post them here? If not let me know and I will remove it..

here is my first idea! His name is Mighty Lamb. He is a super hero that I made up when I was 14, but I sort of abandoned the poor guy once I got into anime and stuff. He has a partner too, her name is Super dove, but she isn't as fun to draw XD. They also have a friend named Billy, he is a Goat, but he sort of is their operator...^^;

ANYWAYS, I feel Mighty Lamb can represent many things for CAA.
1. Of course he is a Lamb so he kinda represents Christ.
2. He also represents us, as Lambs of God... ^^;
3. He is a very postivie Character and likes to lift up the oppressed, (he IS a super hero)
4. He is an animal...


I really look forward to MORE Submissions everyone!! This is going to be a fun contest to be involved in!! I might enter some more, but I will wait a little while, even though I got a few other ideas... ^^; I don't want this to be a CK contest....whichy is why I am gonna wait. so I really really really really really really really really want to see what you guys come up with!!!

*huggles for everyone*

I think I am gonna have a try on this one. However, I do not want a money price. I just want to repay a bit of what this site has given me. :)

Ashley, you do allow photoshopped lines? Meaning not neccisarily inked ones, but use of photoshop to both colour the pic and create the lines?

EDIT: IF I where to win, give the price money to invicible children will you? :D

Oh absolutely. I just meant no pencil sketches; it needs to be a complete, ready-to-be-slapped-on-some-merchandise drawing.

Glad to see this thread -you know I'm in. ;) Man, I think I'll go search through some old sketchbook drawings for inspiration. Is it all right if they're characters we've drawn before and, say, placed on DeviantArt in our accounts?

Must all mascots designs be reigned to merely being cute? I mean, whatever happened to cool moscots? Shipped out to sea, probably; sold off to foreign importers.

I'm not saying the two are mutually exclusive, but I'd like to see a little dash of both. And yes, I realize that I am A) not a judge in this contest, B) only one man, C) not representative of the whole demographic, D) projecting, and E) highly opinionated.

personally, from what I've found- I am more attracted to cute mascots. Although- that is probably because I'm a girl and
I have some obsession with cute things- but still, I think that some would be more attracted to cuteness than coolness.

Scientifically speaking, "New studies suggest that cute images stimulate the same pleasure centers of the brain aroused by pleasure, a good meal or psychoactive drugs like cocaine."

XD

of course, not saying that coolness isnt, um, cool. I'll take that into concideration when I'm drawing. XP thanks for the tip- fishy. :D

You're welcome.

And don't get me wrong, there's nothing wrong with cute and cuddly things. It's just that, to me, a mascot is representative of something, and should mirror that. Is CAA cute? Sure. But it isn't only cute, it's more multifaceted than that.

Aaaaand I'm making this way more complicated than it needs to be.
