Alright... so I'm glad I started this process as it means this could be a fun event for the whole board!

So for this next phase I think I like the idea of a Cat girl in a bunny hood/hairband/etc type appearance. I think that fits. So let's just run with that core concept to save us some time.

I'm thinking we need to hit 3 key themes:

-She should fit the Dark/Fairy Appereance
I'm thinking since have 2 sets of ears we could make where humans ears would be horns? or maybe scales? Also we could give her long finger/toe claws or something? Think outside of the box on this one.
To fit the fairy appearance I'm kinda sold on fluffly little wings! However as long as you do something that accomlished a 'fairy theme' element we'll be fine!

-She should have hair that is colored like fire. Reds and Yellows.. Since Kafuka is all about fire themes in it's first stage of it's life. I leave the rest to you!

-The clothing shouldn't be overly sexy. If you want a 'sexy' apperence it should be subtle and etc. I am not fond of 'sexy' branding as it looks soo tacky. The clothing should be 100% unique and fit her. I'm thinking for the dark theme we could go with formal attire too if you like. She should at least have a full top and a skirt that goes above the knee (shorts can be shorter than this.. but only just).. She can have shoes or not.. they can be fancy dress shoes, or just some hi tops. I leave that all up to you!

I'm thinking maybe she should also have Phanto theme of some kind. Maybe taking my broken phanto mask up herself.. or maybe as jewelry!

Other than her hair.. all the other color choices are yours!

I have to state this: I reserve final judgement on this. I'll be the one to decide if we adopt it officially or not. Also any changes I may request near at the final stanges will be non-negotiable (but I doubt I'll need to exercise this clause. I am putting it here just in case)

I want you guys to work hard on this.. and come up with at least 2 competing designs.. so we can vote. I also want to work together and suggest stuff to each other so it really is a community built mascot.

When the design is final I will take it to an artist of my choosing to have drawn all pretty. (I May take donations at that point too)

Alright I think that's enough to get started. Good luck.. you're going to need it! :D

Okay, here's my pitch:

- A chibi style cat character, similar to a maneki-neko. I feel that a humanoid character wouldn't capture the aesthetic well enough and be too limiting. Also, a larger character with so many people working on her runs the risk of the overall design looking too "busy".

- That said, a simple accessory or two would work well. I specifically recommend a wizard or witch hat with a light fire style trim, kinda like this. Maybe throw in the bunny ears as a part of the hat if there's room, and you're golden.

- I really like the idea of the phanto mask. It's a great callback to the boards original romhacking and video game roots. If an actual mask can't be incorporated somehow, a simple t-shirt with a phanto mask on it could flow really nicely design wise.

The design might sound a bit simple, but simple doesn't necessarily mean lower quality. In this case, a simple design could result in greater focus and a broader appeal for everyone, as many other popular mascots have.

I have an idea but not enough time to write anything lengthy now.

Edit: Broken Phanto mask over her face, so you can see the top right third of her face (from our point of view).

Since my artsy skills are terrible, I'm gonna poke references to my thoughts.

Chibi-style for sure. A Chibi-catgirl with a bunny-ears headband.

Just an idea of what sexy can be without being too much:
https://raikou2.donmai.us/01/eb/01eb3d2fe76102e2020fa5375a842039.jpg (Sorry, going to have to copy-paste. Hotlinking will result in you getting 403'd)

Maybe for the wings thing, a little pair of floating chibi-wings akin to my Sorceress: (Wings are not attached to the body)


The wings alone might be enough to hit the dark and fairy theme. Red hair with Yellow highlights to make a flame-colour would be neat.

Note for those having trouble with the link above and using Firefox/Pale Moon - Enable Developer Tools' debugger, and keep it open with the page open.

Using that, this is something like what I had in mind..


It's a little bit rushed though and not fully what I had in mind. See Discord chat for more info.

That's not too bad. I would still suggest having the phanto mask design on the dress somewhere. Some kind of video game reference seems as key to the design as any other element, IMO.

Agree with the phanto on the dress. Might also be fun to have a hairpin of some sort.

Yup. We need some phanto design on her. The dress or a hairpin sounds really good places for it.

Random suggestion: How about light purple or ice blue eyes?

Light purple would contrast better, I think. Plus, given the heavy female admin and mod influence around here, using that as a trim color would fit.

As for the dress or hairpin for the phanto...why not both?

Why not both indeed! Phantos all around!

Excellent suggestions for the colors.. We can try a whole bunch and see what works!

Here's the real question though: What will her name be?

My vote is for a Japanese K name. How about Kimiko?

Well, from IRC/Discord discussions,
[23:28] <@Epele> hmm.. I can't really figure a way to make that phanto work on the dress thing.
[23:29] <@Epele> I give up at [linked url with bad example was here]
[23:30] <+Discordian> <E‍m‍u‍z> hmm
[23:30] <@Epele> I did the purple eyes thing though
[23:31] <+Discordian> <E‍m‍u‍z> as for the phanto..
[23:31] <@Epele> I couldn't find anything I liked that worked
[23:31] <@Epele> It may be better to do it as a hairclip over adding it to the dress

[23:32] <@Nicole> hm I'd put the dress phanto in the lower corner, maybe even cut off
[23:32] <@Nicole> like a sprite
[23:33] <@Epele> I tried that Nicole. Just doesn't look right.

[23:41] <+Discordian> <D‍r‍a‍o‍b‍y‍e‍k> Purple Eyes Edition
[23:41] <+Discordian> <D‍r‍a‍o‍b‍y‍e‍k> https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/100742660460937216/421090038881976321/ChibiEdit3.png

[23:54] <+Discordian> <E‍m‍u‍z> could place it like.. here as an embroidery. add some vines or chains to accent it. It's common on a dress of this type.
[23:54] <+Discordian> <E‍m‍u‍z> https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/100742660460937216/421093358279065601/unknown.png
[23:55] <+Discordian> <E‍m‍u‍z> (it's shitty but i'm out from work now so no time to not potato it
[23:58] <+Discordian> <E‍m‍u‍z> Hairclip is best btw
[23:58] <+Discordian> <E‍m‍u‍z> It would be nice and big


The linked images:


A name can probably be designed upon once we have a final design.

Indeed. I think we have a good start! We may want to fancy up the dress still even without a hair clip. Maybe we can get some kinda of 8-bit pattern on it? Those style dresses can have patterns..

I like that idea! We need a little bit of green for my side of the equation! Please do :D

Also for artists I'd like to see if @thatsheepagain (style is the full Norkio in the right side of this post) Would anyone have any objections to this?

Haru is currently on vacation but we could go with them when they return. I don't have any matching Noriko styles other than the emotes. My Patreon gift image I'm not going to use for anything as it's a one off. Also there are a few other people I could ask but those are the two really big ones that have open commissions.

I'm still more fond of Sheep's style personally for this particular even due how her style would work for it's pure cuteness.

So that's one Haru (This layout has some of their art) and one for Sheeps.

Note: Also one or both could turn us down too. So keep that in mind :norikowink:
