MDC December 2011

Welcome to the Monthly Design Challenge – the challenge for those who are truly passionate about design.
In short – this is a month long challenge where you will create something new and original, drawing & coloring every pixel yourself using Photoshop & GIMP only.
For information (post #1) & tutorials (post #4) regarding the MDC please read the following link
If you're able to follow & make your own version of the RoC mascot tutotial in post #4 then you'll have no problem entering this challenge.


So here's what we are doing this month ...

Topic: TMC Mascot
Make a mascot to represent the Theme Making Challenge. Please save your finished mascot as a png image on a transparent background.
The design should be usable in both big and small dimensions for advertising banners and sigs.
You will be required to provide a detailed Photoshop psd file (or GIMP xcf file) for every entry. You may enter up to 5 different designs.

Here are the details as requested by Lia the TMC manager:
QUOTE (liapireas @ Nov 15 2011, 11:22 AM) *
Description : I'm so jealous of STC having a beautiful sweet mascot so I would like a new one for TMC.
I can be a boy character, a girl character or a couple, I don't mind. Anything cute or more mature is accepted .
Restriction : I don't like too much robot-like mascots to be frank.


Dimensions: height and width should be anywhere between 400px – 900px
(But you will also post a small 200px view in the entry thread)

Closing Date: Monday 26 December


Participants:
- CrazEric

I'm going to be very busy for the next 2 months (during our summer program) so I'm just going to
work on improving this old entry I made for the Dc mascot:

(IMG:http://i53.tinypic.com/1z6cupj.jpg)

(I'll try and turn it into a 3D type of image)

And if I have time I'm also going to try and make a "baby" Jack Skellington character like this: http://gallery.mobile9.com/f/2005372/
not sure if that will work as a mascot though (IMG:style_emoticons/default/rolleyes.gif)

Great added (IMG:style_emoticons/default/thumbsup.gif)
I just wasted more than an hour trying to change Drago into a 3D character ... it looks horrible! Maybe it wasn't such a good idea (IMG:style_emoticons/default/surrender.gif)

Finished phew!!!
I thought I could do this quickly but it took longer to remake this thing than it took the first time!
Anyway I had to give it a new body, a new tail & change the ears a little.
But for the first time ever I'm happy with something I made (IMG:style_emoticons/default/tongue.gif)
