AnimeBlogger.net Mascot Design Contest
Can you draw well? Do you want your drawing to be seen by the world? Here is your chance!
AnimeBlogger.net is looking for a mascot to represent our growing anime community. AnimeBlogger.net or AB.net in short, has been set up for two years devoid of a mascot that will represent us. Hence, we require talented artists to draw an original anime style character that we can use on our websites as well as for future AB.net merchandise.
The winning design will be awarded $30 USD, or a gift certificate for the same amount at the website of their choice. The winner will also have future opportunities to draw different variations of the mascot as AB.net develops merchandise and earn additional money from it. Additionally, the first and second runners up will win $10 USD and $5 USD respectively.
The following criteria are what we’re looking for in the mascot:
- A cute, young adolescent female character.
- Neutral hair color (brown, black, blond).
- Their outfit should include the letters AB on it visibly using Georgia as the font, with weight bold. (Georgia may be downloaded here if you need it.)
- Digitally colored.
Submissions must meet the following technical requirements:
- Minimum 300dpi
- Canvas size minimum 12″x12″ (3600px x 3600px at 300dpi)
- PNG format
The winner will need to submit their design in Photoshop PSD format after being notified that they’ve won prior to the winners being announced publicly.
Once you have finished your entry, please send it to us. The contest will end on August 7th, 23:59 hours, GMT Time. Any late entries will be discarded. We look forward to receiving your wonderful entries and wish you luck!
