Ai-kon 2017 Mascot Entry by DesignsBySloan Ai-kon 2017 Mascot Entry by DesignsBySloan

The Ai-kon mascot results were announced a while back so I figured it's time to post my entry.

I didn't place this year, which is alright. It was a difficult theme this year (mecha) and I struggled settling on a concept - I only chose this one because I ran out of time. But I tried some new techniques and even attempted to draw (and design) a motorcycle... I'm pretty proud of that. :)

Congrats to everyone who entered! Regardless of whether you placed or not, the theme was out of most people's comfort zones so just trying in itself is a win, to me.

Thank you for reading! <3

Aah!! This is excellent!! It reminds me of something inspired by Clamp but with more mecha involved lol
She looks really cute and both the motorcycle and her look really well designed! Especially for being out of your comfort zone I think you did a fantastic job! <3

I actually never read more than like 2 books but it did seem like a really good concept! And I was rereading Tsubasa recently and you know how their characters always make cameos in their other manga, and the main bot girl made a cameo and it reminded me of it XD

Oooh I was reading Tsubasa recently too (gotta read more Syaosaku somehow, haha). I'm rarely familiar with the characters that make cameos but it's probably really cool to know who they are in relation to their original series and stuff *__*

It's seriously like one of my favorite series, its one of the first manga series I read all the way through and I started reading it during a unhappy time in my life so it really was like a safe place. Haha yeah I usually don't know unless I read the stuff in the back that talks about it ouo
