Hi all you talented people out there! I need a mascot for my website Gamingangels.com. I would like a cute anime girl with wings attached. I can't pay a lot, because it's just a site for fun, but I will put your name on the site so that hopefully you can get other commissions too! Please contact me if you are interested.

Thank you so much *bows*

Is the site created yet? Can I look at it? >: D *Peeks through all of of Katchoo's personal info and profiles*

hehe I have started, but my brother has created a new front page that we still have to implement. I was away on vacation last weekend, so i didn't get to do it. But I am welcome to all kinds of ideas, and if anyone wants to help review for the site. I am in the process of getting companies like XBox and Playstation to send us free games to review. XBox likes the aspect that I am trying to reach female gamers. I just need to get off of my butt and do it! hehe

Do you want a chibi angel, or one with (fairly) normal human proportions? And anything else you were thinking of, outfit and style wise? I can't do it right this second but I'll give it a whack.

I did the mascot for Method Cosplay (www.methodcosplay.com), though that was like six months ago so my art's better now.

I could help out! ^^
Just give me an idea of what you would like!

Well, it might help if I describe the site.

Site name : GamingAngels.com
Purpose: The beginning purpose is to have a cosplay group site where members of the group cosplay Video Game characters. From there the site will grow into an anime, manga, video games, review site. As soon as I have members, XBox and other companies may even sponser us games to promote gaming to females *which is my overall goal. I would like women to know about opportunities that they have for careers in the video game industry. *

Ideas: I really have none. I would like a regular sized anime girl with wings. If you want she can be holding a game controller or you can add something to it for the video game aspect. The majority of the site will be a pink background so you might not want to put too much pink on her.

I hope that helps! I would really love to hear any/all ideas any of you may have!
love,
katchoo ^_^

I will definitely get back to you on this, I should have some free time this weekend. I'm turning professional as we speak, but I'll cut you a break and probably not charge you =p

(and i suppose its not necessary to mention that videogames and angels are 2 of my biggest obsessions :D )

hehe...thank you so much! I would love to pay you something if I can. I'm not sure how much i can pay because i learned today that my job is being layed off.

*bows* thank you again
PS: I love your image hehe
and if you want to review for the site let me know

I'll be free to help out! PM or something if you want a diffrent little mascot on each page so everyone can get their artwork on and it won't be more of a "competion"!

katchoo
11-14-2002, 11:52 AM
That's a great idea! There could be a cosplay one, and an video games one, anime reviewer, possibilities are endless! You are all so creative!! hehe

Ayaka, your mascot for that other page is really good! XD

Spooky Brew
11-14-2002, 07:12 PM
Great that you like the idea! I think we should get one that can siut our artistic ability...if one can't do wings very well he/she can do the cosplay one! It's all a matter what you think you can do best! Me, I don't care....I can do anything I guess! MUHAHAHAHAHA!

katchoo
11-14-2002, 07:25 PM
I think what I would like to do is also actually cosplay the mascots also for the various conventions coming up. So then you can see your artwork come to life. hehe ^_^ And we can advertise for the site too.

So what do you want me to draw exactly? Here's an example of my work!

Is that . . . Inuyasha with boobs? oO;;; Really nice though!

Thanks Setsuki. ^^

Gee, you've got a lot of replies! I like the idea of having a different image for each page, one of the con sites (Otakon?) did something similar, and I actually went to all the pages just to see all the images, lol. Now if I can just get back to my art supplies, I can do something!

Somebody's roleplaying character...it's basically a Inu Yasha...same concept, but a girl....O_o;;;;;

Cool, the more the better!
Spooky - wow that's really cute! ummmm really you have full artistic control here. Just don't put too much pink since the whole site is pink and white. I really have no ideas, but I knew I could get some great responses from the people here.

Maryssa

Thank you so much for taking over organizing abilities for this one. I do have something special planned for all people that contribute to this project. It's not money, but I think those that contribute will appreciate it. *gosh I wish I could pay everyone*

Morbius:

Your skills have impressed me. You did an absolutely wonderful job with your submission! Very Akumastu-esque. One of my favorite manga artists. :D

Maryssa

very nice, but I think the colors for a mascot could be a little more vivid though, and the angle she is on is a little awkward, like she's falling or something... glad you adapted my controller thing. i dunno i just think a mascot would have something very unique about it...her clothes are a little... plain? I dunno =/ its a beautiful drawing but i dont know if it screams 'mascot'

katchoo (not spooky): uh do you still even want mine? if there isnt reason for me to finish it let me know.

i agree with maryssa, it need more color^.^, and now that i think about it, the angel is kinda off, but dont take this the wrong way! i like it!! its so very cute!!^o^

Morbius
12-16-2002, 11:49 AM
heh, I see what your saying, but I really don't have time to fix it at this point. Since Maryssa seems so eager maybe you should use hers. :) Good luck gang.

Morbius,

I would just like to say that I love it!! I appreciate any and all hardwork that you have put by trying to contribute! I am going to be using all the drawings on my website.

Thank you and everyone who is helping!

Thanks,
katchoo
