What if we had a team? :O Like, a character for each important board, each with a distinct personality? I'm working on some, now.
Here's what I'm thinking...
A general for General (Duh.)
A goof for Goof Off (Duh, again)
A teacher thing for Tutorial
A greeter for Who's Who.
A mechanic for Testing.
An artist for the art boards.
An overly exaggerated anime girl for the Anime Boards.
An overly cool anime guy for the Manga Boards. (always in B&W, of course)
A nerd/worm for the Book Corner and Writing.
A crazy teen for the Jam Session.
A typical RP character for the RP rooms. (Scars, weird hair, weapons, etc.)


Like that. \o.o/

I think my vote goes for the copyright box. Not because it was me, but because everyone can believe it is whatever they want to believe.

I see the resemblance, Christian Kitsune. Hope its not too much like your fine Kitsune. ^_^ An angelic fox seems to need wings and a Halo. Though without them the character does look more "down-to-earth." That's not bad either. I even thought of doing the same line art as a second submission but as a racoon this time. What do you think? (my nephew has been playing Sly on his Play Station 2 lately -- the main character is a racoon).

It doesn't really matter to me, I just worry that people will confuse CAA with me. I wouldn't want CAA to be associated with JUST me. Either way, it's VERY cute. and I do love it! If you don't change it, hopefully people will know that my mascot is an animal, while yours is just a super kawaii little girl wearing a fox outfit! I'll just be sure that if I do draw my mascot as a girl someday, that I won't make her look like yours. XD

It's up to you on what you do with it, I don't want to step on anyone's toes here. ^^

A racoon would also be cute, though!

Ah, Sly... I like that game (and the sequel. Whereas the 'threequel' I've only played 5 mins on, so I can't yet give a conclusive opinion ;) ).

Dang -that's so cute! XO I think that while it does have some resemblance to CK's fox, it should be okay. Your angel fox looks different enough to the anthro winged fox, CK; but, as you said, if you ever draw your character as a little girl, you'll need to make her look different ~_^.

I agree; this mascot has a really good chance. ^_^ And if she wins, I'd love to draw one of the pictures (as was suggested somewhere, I think...) of her for accompanying the forums somewhere. =3
Gah. I think I confused myself with that last phrase. But bah; if you can understand it, right on. :thumb: :lol:

Postby Noblewreck » Wed Jul 18, 2007 11:26 pm

ShadowCat,
Your skills are showing. Good job. Are you familiar with any old Japanese stories about winged cats. Seems I've got a glimps of such.

Photosoph,
I like your puppy drawing skills, very kawaii and chibi. Sly on the Playstation looks like fun. My nephew lets me watch. ;_; maybe he will let me play someday. What exactly happened to Demetri -- he's now in a wheelchair. Racoon Mascot still on the mental burner. If that last line made sense, right on. :thumb:

Sounds good... I think. ;)

ChristianKitsune,
I think you might have a point there my friend. I'm seriously thinking of removing the wings and halo. I think the critter will do fine that way. I have another non-fox character in mind with wings & halo. Keep shining CK. :thumb:

\^o^/ Thank you. Your entry is awesome.

I think a cat really represent us, though. |:3
Think about it...
-Catboys/girls is a super common..species..?
-"Neko" is one of the Japanese words everyone knows.
-The "3"-shaped mouth was taken from cats.
-"CAA" is practically "CAT" \o.o/
-The cat's slit-shaped eyes are constantly used in bad-guy eyes, (Unless it's a snakey bad guy, or something.) and at the same time, cats don't HAVE to have the slanty eyes.
-Lions are in the cat family, and lions are often featured in Christian metaphors (sometimes representing Jesus.) Cats are the smaller version, though, just as we are small compared to God. I also chose a kitten, because although cats are considered independent, they are still extremely dependent as kittens. (Cats are also misunderstood and misrepresented, just like Christians~)
-There are also stories, as Noblewreck pointed out, about winged cats from old Japanese stories.

oh man. i didnt realize that there were a whole bunch of winged/haloed characters.

I guess mine will be just another one of those. =A=

well, here is Isaiah. I named him after my fave bible verse, Isaiah 61 1-3.

He's a winged lion. er... lion cub.

I picked a lion cub because in Daniel 7:4, it talks about a lion with wings. So I thought taht would be a good idea, since its from teh bible and all.
He's a cub because.. well cubs are cute, but also because a lot of times, the bible refers to people as lion cubs.

XP

so yeah.

The things written on his scarf are just 3 things that come to mind when I think about Christianity.


there. I'm done.

No, not at all, CK. I think you made a valid point in a nice kind manner. ^-^ And I like her fine without those additional parts. :thumb:

CAAT!
Maybe that can be this guy's name? :p
Kidding~
But, here some more of him.
His colors/type of cat changes with his mood.
Yus, I messed up on a lot of things, including the lack of color on that one part of the wing.

yaay! ^_^ that was a fun project to work with you, Savvy! ^_^ Thanks for the opportunity! :3 They look really cute! :3


NW CUTE little guy! ^_^ you did Khaki's idea very well! ^_^ I really love the colors you chose!

Shadow Cat, aww what a cute little guy! great job on him too
here is my FINAL entry:

Image

This is an explorer and her name is Cami. I feel that she and her friends, Lumi the robotic Lantern, and her dog Dana can represent CAA because they represent the fact that Christians can be like explorers too. ^_^

For instance, we love to find and help out those that need it. And we also try to keep our light burning brightly.

Although CAA is a forum, it is a site for Anime Reviews. Anime shouldn't be considered Taboo, and there are many Christians that believe this. The reviews of the anime series are written from a Christian persepective, and it has been a great tool in showing parents that not all anime is bad.

There are so many good entries in this contest...I I have had a blast seeing all of the amazing creativity that the othere artists on CAA have. Good luck everyone! ^_^
