As many may have noticed, we have our owner photoshop corner here on Grepless. A place where we can talk Photoshop and Photoshop only! Ironically, Adobe Illustrator or any other vector program could come in handy for making a mascot! This could be a good opportunity to learn more about vector graphics.
PS: this contest has been extended for 2 days! Remember guys, the mascot will be put in the navigation bar on top, so its colors should take that into account. I put the hex codes of those colors at the bottom of this post.
A dedicated mascot would make a welcome addition to the logo (which is only visible here, positioned between the logo and the word 'photoshop'). The winner of this contest will receive a $50 Amazon gift card!
An alien, animal, person, emoji, ... or anything creative that you can think of that would make a nice mascot for a community of digital artists.
The image you post here should be in JPG or PNG format, but ideally you also have an SVG that scales nicely. If you are not using vector graphics, make sure the resolution of your bitmap image is large enough, so our little mascot can be displayed properly on all devices.
The mascot should NOT contain any text or logos. This is just about the mascot itself.
Let's get creative and turn this community into a more personal, comfy space, with our own little mascot!

PS: in previous contests, we noticed not everyone votes on all entries. If you can find the time, vote on all entries, not just the ones you like. The more votes we collect, the happier we can be with the results!
