The BG Mascot thread!

Post by Sherflow on Sat Apr 25, 2015 12:53 pm

I hope this hasn't come up anywhere else and people won't yell at me...

So we got a bunch of arty types right? Why not use this thread as an opportunity to summit character designs for a BG mascot! even if the quality isn't the best I know enough people to get it commissioned. Winner will be chosen by the Admins I expect.

If Admins want to change the rules and Q&A, you are more than welcome to!

Even if we decide against having a mascot, I don't see why not to try anyway, an exercise and contest of an artist ability shall we say Razz

Rules (Expected to change to Admins preference):-

- No Nudity                           - Character edits are allowed
- No Gore                             - All methods of art allowed (Digital, Traditional ect.)
- has to be Blargaria themed
- Most important rule; Don't just rip off someone else work and post in this thread without an additional alterations to it (like just posting anime Flippy from happy tree friends)

Q&A (Expected to change to Admins preference):-

Q: Does it have to be Anime/Manga themed or can I style it differently?
A: I'm going to say only Anime/Manga themed for now, though it depends on the Admins, I'd allow all types of styles but this is an Anime/Manga centric forum.

Q: No nudity? okay how about something close?
A: I'm not a prudish person, but sorry, Nothing skimpy either. Play it safe until the Admins like have their final say.

Q: Character edits? you mean if I take Sakura's hair and turn it green or something it's still eligible to be a mascot?
A: Yep, plenty of websites have used edited version of already established anime characters.

Q: Whatcha mean, Blargaria Themed?
A: I mean so the the Mascot fits with the website layout. (make them green or have BG on imprinted them).

Q: Do they have to be Human?
A: Nope, they can be whatever you like People, Cats or even the letters BG with big cartoon eyes, go nuts!

Q: Do I have to be good at drawing?
A: Nope, you could have never drawn in your life and still give it ago! Like I said I'll get it commissioned if the Admins aren't content with the quality, Just make sure it's an Interesting and potentially cool design, basically do whatever you want! (within the rules ofcourse)

Q: Can I only submit one?
A: Nope, if you have more than one design then submit it in the same post to stop the thread from flooding. You can always come back and submit as much as you want!

Q: How do I submit my work?
A: Click the "Host an Image" Icon then selected your desired picture and then click "Host it" then copy the url in the "Image url :" the paste that into the "Inert image" "URL" or alternatively upload it onto another website and use the url for that picture in the "Insert image URL:"  

Q: Will you participate and start us off?
A: Er... not at the moment no, I'm much too busy with things as it is, but I'll give it ago in the future if we've not already decided by then.

Well that's it really, Hope ya'll like my idea and I haven't just embarrassed myself haha

Good Luck ya nerds and Have fun!

I'm fine with this too! Go nuts!
My only thing is; it really doesn't need to be anime/manga themed. We do cover other forms of entertainment such as Trek, Wars, Dr. Who, BTTF, comics, TV, ect.
I think the anime/manga style would better suit the site though.

In Q&A section it states you can submit as many as you want. There is no deadline as of yet, I'll leave that to the admins decision.

Since I'll most likely be the one using them. Let me tell you.

There's no hurry, take your time. Once we get a few we'll probably just ask the masses which ones are the most suitable and go from there.

(Totally not bumping this thread or anything)

If you need help with character editing or receiving tips for specific programs let me or key know, I'm sure we could lend a hand.

I can help with GIMP and Photoshop.

------------------------------------------------------
Question for Key, I read the level ranks and saw Hyera Mascot as title, does that mean she's the mascot and this whole thing is pointless?

@Sir Flow

Nah, that's just a special rank that me and Bryan decided to give her since she's made like 20% of Blar's posts all by herself.

This and that are completely different, so no worries there.

I've already imposed much of my personal desires onto this site.
For this, I'll just let other decide what they think is best.

Tell you what guys, if there's one requirement that I'd like to add, it's make the mascot green/ish. It's so as to better fit with the site's theme.

Yep, tried to incorporate elements from the site onto her and this seemed like the best solution.
Also, just realized I can help promote this site a little bit since I posted my entry on my deviantart page. I posted a link on my devinatart submission. I'm not a popular user on devinatart, but I may get some newcomers interested.

Again, I like the entries, but think that I'm gonna need to work with the files themselves if I am to include it in the banner or else...

As they are, they're just drawings.

Once a winner is picked out, that person can then send you the file I assume.

I'm thinking about waiting until the end of may, and then let users decide between the options.

I'll be then be taking the reins.

I am curious: are you looking for a mascot as in a character design that can be redrawn in different styles (like fakku's or crunchroll?) or an actual character logo that can be used over and over in the same file?
