I present to you my idea for the new mascot(s): Mango and Dex!

Mango is the orange snake and Dex is the white snake.

The site, as it is now, is very simple which i really like. I tried to create something simple and professional. The images were done rather quickly and this was perfect for procrastinating my exams. ?
The color scheme reminds me of some other site and I can't for my life figure out from where but hopefully it's something original. (Except the reddit-looking snake)

Below are the three (plus one) images requested:


Everything was created in Illustrator so there I have the vector formats for all these images.

Here are some images that show some of the process:

So... someone had to do it and I lack graphical talent(seems like a good fit)... Of course using a alternative free font to prevent legal trouble for such a legal-based site's logo :p (SansSerifBldFLF). I'm not a fan of how the first "a" just fuses into the "n" so it's not 100% the same style :p



EDIT:

Unfortunately I'm not an artist so I chose the lazy way by fusing the mascot with the logo.
Wait, don't run away yet, because it ended up making sense.

Here's a short interpretation summary:

There are three ways to view the logo/mascot.

  1. As a bare logo. The top half represents the letter m which stands for manga obviously.

  2. The top half can also be viewed as an open book. The smaller the logo gets the more it appears to be a book or a manga page with panels.

  3. The robot face as its main characteristic. I'm sure the eyes will be interpreted differently, but they're supposed to depict closed eyes of a smiling facial expression.

The color is discussable. I simply went with the link color of the light theme here and was quite satisfied with the result.

Second submission.

Tried my hand on drawing some stuff by hand. Not entirely sure on the color scheme on the mascot but it's easy to change anyways.
Everything is vector-based so the images can scale to any size.

Wanted to create my version of Beemo (from Adventure Time) and had fun designing it overall.

The banner(s):
- Light version
- Dark version

The mascot:



The logo:


Did something extra but it resulted in something.. unsettling. 🤣

A more Interesting color scheme this time, also tried to be clever with the mascot chat bubble. Everything is once again in vector format.

Had some free time so why not. Don't have the drawing skills(or expect to win anyway) to do a mascot, but color scheme can easily be tweaked to match whichever mascot wins.

Banner (centred)

Banner (left)


Mascot (Ink)

This image of the mascot also functions as the icon. Her name is Ink, she's not actually an octopus tho, it's just her silhouette. She does like octopodes tho

Because it's a silhouette, there's a lot of room to play with it in future promotional material. You can stay simple or go all out w/ a full body character, etc. If I have time I'll add an example full-body drawing to this post.

Logo with text


There is no "light" version provided as this banner can function in both a light and dark page; and the mascot is about 50% brightness

Sidenote: I went really simple on this because I really like the site as is, I don't want it to get all colourful and complex at the top for no real reason.

I was only able to start a drawing for a profile picture/mascot for this contest before my laptop broke and I had to send it in for repair ;-;



I'd love to draw a cleaner image for some of the mascots/logos though for the winner at the end!

((also good GOD this is my first time commenting on any forum and I had no idea how to upload this image;;))

Hopefully I'm not too late!

My mascot is more on the yuru-chara end of the mascot scale. (Her name's Kanon, by the way.)

Character design:

Full Body:


Icon variants:
1st:


2nd:


3rd:


For the logo, I decided to go for a simple look.

Logo (Monochrome):


Logo variants (W/color):




As for banner, there's only one design, though the only difference is in logo placements :



And that's about it.

@NobunagaOda That's really cute! I like it!

Edit: fixed banner designs.

The concept is loli neet mage. It was drawn as a vector and can be freely resized and all colours can be easily changed.
