FT Mascot?
« on: November 01, 2006, 12:21:47 am »
Every site seems to have a groovy little mascot, so why don't we? dA has Fella, FA has Fender. Even the Sheeze has... whatever that thing is.

I'm willing to design a mascot if y'all like. Di and I were thinking like a Badger or a wolverine, to break away from non-traditional animals, but I'm open to any suggestions y'all can throw at me.  :fox-:):

That's what this is. A suggestion process, which would ultimately lead to a vote :P

I think a pine marten personally but maybe you should just design some and see if the members vote on who they like most as a mascot.

That'd be all crazy like. @_@  And would we want it to represent us as all crazies? How about multiple mascots like a group instead of just one?

I guess so but usually a mascot is only one thing... I still like my mutant idea... XD It'd scare people away though rather than welcome them in... O_O

omg, a Chimera would be a great mascot, because it's a mix of scalie, furry, and avian (if you add wings)

No. Chimera eats you for thinking such things.

If you want multiple mascots, we should have them of varying ages.
I think one would be better. It would be nice to have people submit multiple entries before anyone votes.
Either art or descriptions. Artist can render the mascot images for different site locations later. It shouldn't be too personalised. Keep it simple. Well, good mascots are simple.

I'd like to se a female mascot. Most I see are male.

It could be a plushie, like this chimera: http://www.toyvault.com/herebemonsters/Chimera%20-%20Large.jpg

Then it could be any age, really.

Of course I don't want to add to the stereotype that most furries are plushophiles *shudders*

Chimeras seem too complicated to me.

Maybe it should be androgynous looking and it's sex be undisclosed.
That way more people can identify with it.

Let's try to stay away from chibi stuff or being too specific about it's anthro level.
I'm not saying we can't have chibi versions.
Just not chibi as it's main form. Maybe it could change depanding on what section of the forum you're looking at. Like for the mature Role play board could have a hawt version and the general section a G rated version.

It's hard to make it hot if you don't know what gender it is.

Maybe we can have twins then. One male and one female.

I could make it look hawt even even if it was neuter though.

Yeah, but if it's neuter, people won't be sure if they're supposed to think it's hot or not. I know I get embarassed whenever I say "That guy is hot!" and then someone says "...that's a woman."
