There's nothing wrong with adding a bit of color right? :D
My mascot represents the spirit of all existing and new emerging artists. Creativity is oozing out of her hair in the form of birds and flowers (cheesy yes I know)!!! Regardless of our skill level in drawing, writing, or using whatever programs we use, we just fudging love anime. And it's good to share it with the rest of the world!
I joined theO 9 years ago, then left, then came back. My drawings sucked when I first joined theO but I was damn proud of them! :D TheO was a friendly community where I could share my joy of drawing without worrying about receiving negative comments. And this positive spirit at theO fuelled my passion for art.
So essentially my mascot has a happy and passionate spirit because that's how I feel when I draw.
