I read an old thread back in 2004 and the latest one from September 2016 in which you were proposing a mascot for Haiku.
I was in discussion with a friend of mine because I organize a yearly drawing competition for all DeviantArt users – both amateur and professional. Based on special rubrics, the best drawings are awarded points or 3-month CORE memberships.
The problem I have this year is on deciding which will be the new prompt. The first option was on designing a remake of a popular commercial character, just like last year’s version of the contest. The second prompt was to make something related to my original characters. And finally, I thought about the search for a mascot for Haiku.
So, what do you think? If I make Haiku’s mascot as this year contest’s prompt, two sides may get benefited:
- The contestants, which will receive prizes based on their efforts.
- The community, which will have more options for deciding which may be the mascot.
The prompt would sound something like this: “If the Haiku community asks you for a mascot, how would it look like?”.
So, what do you think? Of course if you don’t like the idea, the contest will go on based on the first two alternatives that I said before.
