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

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:



(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 rolleyes.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 tongue.gif

I actually did finish another one earlier today (a little Jack Skellington) and i'm very happy about how it turned out,
but now that it's done I really dont think it would be popular as a mascot so I'll stick to just the one entry this month wink.gif
I'm kind of tired of "cute" (definitely no bunny from me) laugh.gif
Aleena143

wow that was a quick response laugh.gif
it's really not fantastic let me show you the original size
then you'll see I only spend a few minutes on it ....




Let me show everyone my little Jack Skellington type character
also not an entry - I thought it would make a good mascot ... until I made it laugh.gif



liapireas
Ah god Eric , If only I could make such awesome designs (I have never tried to do a mascot !!!! )
Jack is awesome and I really, really love that character !!!!!! clap.gif
And one more thing to add here .... You are playing with our nerves crazy guy, both bunny and Jack are excellent !!!!! 10.gif

Sorry i was on the phone ... cant type & talk at the same time (multitasking is a female thing right) tongue.gif
The bunny is full of flawed lines (if you really look at it). I'm getting better at using the Pen tool but it still takes me forever to get smooth lines rolleyes.gif
And I'm very happy with the way Lil'Jack turned out (never done something like that) ... I just dont think the TMC participants want a "skeleton" as a mascot laugh.gif

and now I really have to go - as usual i'm running late wallbash.gif byebye.gif

Exactly I absolutely adore it !!!!!!!!!!!!! clap.gif 10.gif
Why not having something like this for a mascot in TMC , I'm sure many will like it as well !

Well mom let me help you a little bit some things that are coming to my mind right now are these :

bunny girl, bears,panda, tigers, monkeys, fox (anything from animals really !) scarecrows (why not ?) ,anything pirate type, I don't know ... sailors ?
Fairies, butterflies, puppets / marionettes, voodoo dolls, witches/ wizards, ladybugs ....
