Hello All Members!

I am excited to announce that FinHeaven & Co is looking for a new mascot for the upcoming season. The current mascot has been with us since the 2002 season, and it's time for an overhaul. We figured... what the heck... it's a new era for the Dolphins so we'll make it a new era for FinHeaven. Here is an opportunity to show off your skills!

Here is the criteria:




Serious entries ONLY!
You may submit as many mascots as you wish.
Mascot must be in Photoshop or Illustrator format.
Added 1/27 Do NOT take a copyrighted photo of a dolphin or illustration of a dolphin and modify it and submit it. It has to be your own created original work.
Mascot must be able to be as big or small as possible without it getting blurry. (I believe this is vectored or something)
Try to keep colors at a minimum for printing purposes (the current mascot has about 5 colors, however, to most t-shirt people it's 4 because the brown can be made with an orange/black mix)
Do not submit any entires modifying the official Miami Dolphins Mascot. That is their own LICENSED mascot.
For the aqua and orange please use the following colors:

Aqua: #006666
Orange: #FF8204

DEADLINE UPDATE: Sunday, January 30th
What We're Looking For:




We are looking for something similar to the current mascot, but to be slightly more aggressive looking.
Professional
Crisp/Sharp/Smooth/all other adjectives such as that
The mascot can be in either a "standing" position (such as now) or a "swimming" version. If you design one of each, but they are the same "version" we may consider buying both.
What You Get:


If you are the winner you'll get a "badge" underneath your avatar that reads "Mascot Creator"
You will also receive $100 cash (via PayPal or Check) or a $100 store credit to the FinHeaven & Co store... your choice.
So...

Get to work! We are looking forward to a new mascot for FinHeaven. When you design your mascot, just post it here. Please note that you are "competing" with other graphic designers that may not be members of this forum.

LURKERS! If you aren't a registered member but want to compete, just upload your mascot and email us at admins(@)finheaven.com!

NOTE: Please post your mascots to make them public so everyone can see them! Unless you're a lurker... then email us... or you can FINALLY register!

Once again, we look forward to seeing your work! Have a great night!

Sincerely,
Andrew Tatum
Webmaster/Founder

This one is the sh-t. No need for a deadline, IMO this one is perfect.

I don't like the second one, though......it doesn't look right.

i like them both, the first one looks mean, like you'd like your team.

the second one (i agree, it needs teeth), looks predatory, almost like a shark.

i like the second one better (especially if it had teeth).

Oh, there will definitely be other drawings entered into this contest. I'm advertising this contest to several other graphic designers that I know... even if they aren't Fin fans.

However, I would definitely like to see someone at least enter something in. I know there are a few graphically inclined people on this board....

My 2 cents.

The spaceage headgear is throwing me off....love the teeth and the position of the football and FH tatoo. Think it could help if it had an eyeball or something....the eyes are whats throwing me.

I like the helmet (headgear) on this one....does need teeth. Eye is cool. Maybe add chin strap, earhole, or face mask somehow....to make it more FootBall themed helmet...but very sweet.

I personally like this one in many ways, but as you said... the head gear throws me off. When I see it I think "robofin". The second one looks pretty good but it's too "soft" imo.

Once the official logo is selected since it is limited to 4 colors I will convert it to embroidery format and glady proved you Admins with staff shirts of some sort.

For a small donation to finheaven and the cost of the shirt/string I will gladly embrioder the logo for all finheaven members. As long as its ok with the artist and AJ.

My wife spent a FORTUNE (were talking near 5 digits) on an embriodery machine. I even embrioder my own dolphins gear too :p So at least i can put her to work!!!

Not being rude but, how and why does the headgear throw you off? The whole point of it was to go futuristic like some kind of "bad ***" bionic phin...lol As for the eyeball...well that's as I just mentioned above he loses he's "freaky", "don't mess with me" look...lol

Adding teeth and editing the helmet is easier said than done...this one was meant to look more realistic...by adding teeth he becomes a 'toon, something which I was told to try and avoid doing...

but I'm working on another one, not sure that it'll be done by the deadline though...

Hey drawers - I was speaking to a friend and he thought it would be a good idea if we thought about the site name... FinHeaven. He added that we could look into a "heavenly" drawing or go towards the Greek gods and do something like Poseidon or Trident. It's just an idea, but makes a ton of sense. Let me know what you think....

DM ... you are so talented that you must be destroyed for the common good. :j/k:

I'm only jealous because whatever verbal skills I have are compensation for my total lack of visual artistic talent.

On to the contenders: the bionic headgear in the first entry didn't throw me off at all. I totally get the 21st-century killer dolphin. But mna ... that second design is really growing on me. Realistic and retro all at the same time. I think it would have to get my vote so far.

Maybe someone could draw the sun circling the dolphins head, kinda like a halo...or if they go after the Greek God angle, draw the dolphin all buff with lots of muscles....just an idea.

The first Dark Mistress logo is great for the site.

Damn, I wish I could draw better. I am pretty good with lettering and can do some calligraphy but that's about it. I like Dark Mistresses #1 the best. Best and toughest looking Dolphin I have seen and the colors are great! DM send this to the Dolphin organization and tell them this needs to be the new official mascot!! :)

Hello All Members!

I am excited to announce that FinHeaven & Co is looking for a new mascot for the upcoming season. The current mascot has been with us since the 2002 season, and it's time for an overhaul. We figured... what the heck... it's a new era for the Dolphins so we'll make it a new era for FinHeaven. Here is an opportunity to show off your skills!

Here is the criteria:





Serious entries ONLY!
You may submit as many mascots as you wish.
Mascot must be in Photoshop or Illustrator format.
Mascot must be able to be as big or small as possible without it getting blurry. (I believe this is vectored or something)
Try to keep colors at a minimum for printing purposes (the current mascot has about 5 colors, however, to most t-shirt people it's 4 because the brown can be made with an orange/black mix)
Do not submit any entires modifying the official Miami Dolphins Mascot. That is their own LICENSED mascot.
For the aqua and orange please use the following colors:

Aqua: #006666
Orange: #FF8204

DEADLINE: Friday, January 28th
What We're Looking For:





We are looking for something similar to the current mascot, but to be slightly more aggressive looking.
Professional
Crisp/Sharp/Smooth/all other adjectives such as that
The mascot can be in either a "standing" position (such as now) or a "swimming" version. If you design one of each, but they are the same "version" we may consider buying both.
What You Get:


If you are the winner you'll get a "badge" underneath your avatar that reads "Mascot Creator"
You will also receive $100 cash (via PayPal or Check) or a $100 store credit to the FinHeaven & Co store... your choice.
So...

Get to work! We are looking forward to a new mascot for FinHeaven. When you design your mascot, just post it here. Please note that you are "competing" with other graphic designers that may not be members of this forum.

LURKERS! If you aren't a registered member but want to compete, just upload your mascot and email us at admins(@)finheaven.com!

NOTE: Please post your mascots to make them public so everyone can see them! Unless you're a lurker... then email us... or you can FINALLY register!

Once again, we look forward to seeing your work! Have a great night!

Sincerely,
Andrew Tatum

Jwcolour
01-24-2005, 01:02 PM
I added some sweet chest hair and a bit of blood on his fin. I don't know how to really make bulging sweet muscles otherwise he would have a sweet sixpack. No, 12 pack for abs and some radical pecs. I also can't do sweet yellow tinted shooting glasses, but I did make his cornea red for some reason. I almost made his eyes bloodshot because thats intense, like he was puking before the game just because he's so badass that he likes the taste of his own vomit. But then I thought, Ricky's eyes are bloodshot most of the time too, only for a different reason. If anyone wants to take the liberty to add bulging biceps, pecs and 12pack abs be my guest.

Chest hair is funny!

I prefer the original with the headgear. There is something about the one without head gear that just doesn't look right to me.

Question for Admin:

Are you going to put the new Fin mascot up for a vote so we all can vote on which design is best, or is Admin going to pick it. I like the designs by DM....the robo-Dolphin one was nice, but I think the new one with the halo and the Dolphins eye is even better...and it is appropriate with Fin-HEAVEN. Also, can you make some shirts with the new logo and Fin-Heaven....the Fin-Heaven lettering can use some updating too!!! ;)

I like this one the best. The helmet is cool and appropriate for a Football board. Makes the mascot look tough....

As for the Halo theme, its a bit problematic if you want an "aggressive" Dolphin. Maybe we can switch the site name to FinHell and give the guy a pitchfork (hey, this season WAS hell, wasnt it?)

Y'know ... I'm not sure but what I still like DM #1 with the eye, etc. better.

THAT SAID ...

If the Dolphins ever update their official logo, I'd love this.

Update: the contest will go on until Sunday, January 30th as some users need the weekend to finish work.

BTW - theguilt - very nice but it needs to be a little fatter. I like the FH on the foootball... overall very nice.

Yes, well not fat...but huge bulging muscles and some chesthair ought to do it

Nice work. I agree with the others in that it's a little too thing. But I also think that the head hangs a little too far from the mouth.

Still, nice work. Darkmistress, I don't think I gave you props either. In all my taskmastering, I forget to give kudos sometimes. :)

I like the third one. Nice adaptation of the sun motif for the halo.

Buddwalk
01-26-2005, 03:58 PM
looks like we got some competition now...i like the one where the phin is on fire but the text F H needs to be another bold font or something where it sticks out more...its very good though

FinHeavenAJ
01-26-2005, 03:59 PM
Those are pretty cool actually. I like the second and third one the most. The second one because of the teeth and the third because of the circle. No offense, but they would look much better if they were a little bit more "digital" and showed some more detail such as shading and whatnot. If those things can be added, it will definitely be a high contender...

Thanks for entering!!

FinHeavenAJ
01-26-2005, 04:01 PM
You say you aren't good with computer graphics... I took it into Photoshop and made all the colors "solid." That's about where my knowledge ends as far as that goes. Like I said though... a tad bit more detail would definitely kick these things up!

Astro_Fiend
01-26-2005, 04:20 PM
i dont have photoshop or anything like that...some of the guys here at work do but i dont know how to use it. i can do shading with a pencil or pen, but when it comes to the computer...

lets just say it took me many hours to get it from paper to computer and colored in...if i do more work to those i will miss the deadline! :(

TheFlashWade
01-26-2005, 06:03 PM
Great drawing Astro but i think darkmistress has a better perception of the size. If you minimize yours a bit and make it a little more professional it might be a real contender. Im still sticking with DM #2 for now.

Astro_Fiend
01-26-2005, 06:15 PM
thanks for the input everyone. a guy here at work is gonna show me how to use photopaint quick tomorrow instead of using my trusty mspaint. we'll see if i can improve, or if i just screw it up more!:lol:

oh, and about the size...the original was twice that! :eek:

FinHeavenAJ
01-26-2005, 07:59 PM
On the contrary, the bigger the original artwork the better... unless the artwork can be vectorized. The size of the original drawing is meaningless....

Hard to see since i made it a JPEG to save space. So i'll just tell you the changes i made. First, I made green vomit coming out of the blow hole, complete with chunks of corn. Next I added a breath right strip on his beak. If you could see it it actually says finheaven on it. I added nipples to him because nipples are cool and we are lucky we all have them (hopefully). I almost added a nipple ring but that might hurt if he got tackled by the nips. I added stitches under his eye and blood coming out of it because he is so intense he did it himself, not using real stitches but instead shoelaces so it didn't work real well. I made his abs really really strong, I was going to give him a onehundred pack but that would take too long so I just made it a tenpack and then added a belly button. I put blood on his rag because he used it for his stitches and it was intimidating. I figured, how did this football get pumped full of air? So I added one of those holes on it so you can pump it up. Then I added all the neccessary Chest and Armpit hair that would make him a real warrior. Then I gave him a pistol in his holster just incase, but he isn't reckless with it, he uses two hands and has a liscense for it.

those are some awesome and/or hilarious logos

i dont really know how to make one of them
but i tried to at least show this shape that makes a dolphin as mean as it could

if anybody who knows anything about photoshop likes it,
feel free to let it intrigue and motivate you

and i put it in a fireball because i can draw a paintshop fireball like its my job


as for the contest
i like that darkmistress one that doesnt have the helmet on it.
im totally feeling the halo because this is finHEAVEN and visual puns are what a logo is all about.


this thread is awesome.

I still like it better with the Halo on...It looks tight....but this is FINHEAVEN, therefore, this logo would be the appropriate one....But like I said, I still like the one with the Halo on the best.

I agree, I like the one with the Halo, and the one with the helmet.
