We will be having the cover and mascot contest again this year, similar to last year. It will be announced and started around April. It will end in July or August. We might end it a little earlier this year (July) to give more time to integrate the new mascot art, colors, and design into the web site so it can go up quickly after the con (rather than at elections like last time).Also, there is a possibility we will have a theme rather than being wide open, although it hasn't been decided yet. The reason I point this out, is that interested participants shouldn't begin yet--we don't want anyone to spend a lot of time working on something before the contest has been announced and then find it doesn't qualify.As for not allowing publishing the entry anywhere else before the contest is over--this might disqualify too many good possibilities, if the entrant has perhaps posted it casually or distributed it a little bit to friends. One possibility is to just not allow linking to it on the forum, but not have a blanket rule against having ever publicized it elsewhere (I think this is how Sakura-Con does it). We're still thinking about how to handle this.
I've been trying to teach myself how to draw chibis lately because I want to take part in this contest. (I'm also working on doing chibi versions of people I know, including some of you guys; mwawawa).
Well, from what I understand, Kumori is a girl's name, so a female would be logical.
So... when is this due?><
Quote from: Washougal_OtakuWell, from what I understand, Kumori is a girl's name, so a female would be logical.I believe Kumori is Japanese for "Cloudy" in reference to the weather in Eugene ware the con started. The Mascot has always been Kumori girl or KumoriKo or K Girl the average every day anime fan next door with an umbrella. Although I’m working on the definitive Kumori Fanfic that establishes she is Keiko Katsu Kimiyo-Kumori the escaped princess of the cloud kingdom hiding on earth from her uncle the Usurper King Ku Mori Mori. The Chibi is her younger look alike cousin Kumiko Kiwa Kimiyo-Kumori . They are both stuck on earth with one of the Cloud Queens body guards Ozen Ryo and a Former homeless Army Nurse and Bag Lady who as Mrs Bagly is there house keeper.And if any one cares the Cloud Kingdom is set in an Oxygen Nitrogen torus ring orbiting the star Kuma at 1.0 AU and encompassing an Asteroid field. Thus there are many small wordlets within the Atmosphere surrounded by the cloudy mist of the torus ring. There are various means of traveling between them either on flying beast or technological means from airships to rockets to futuristic spacecraft. But most of the story is in Portland ware they travel in a Buick Skylark modified to fly and dubbed the K-Lark.
can i be the mascot?
