Rubygame Logo / Mascot?

Postby jacius » Tue Feb 10, 2009 11:08 pm

Shevy suggested in IRC that Rubygame should have a mascot, "something cute".

Should we have a mascot? What should it be?

An anime mascot of course! Since ruby came from Japan, why not use Japanese-style art in the logo?

I suggest a magical girl.

Didn't the Gosu logo used to be an anime girl drinking hot cocoa?

How about an animal of some sort? Or perhaps something related to video games, like a joystick?

I had an idea when I woke up this morning: a chibi baby Japanese Macaque (snow monkey; the ones that take baths in the hot springs) playing with a joystick or game pad.

The Japanese Macaque of course represents Japan, since that's where Ruby comes from. Also, they are so adorable. :D

Thoughts?

Spent a little time doodling in Inkscape tonight. Here's a rough sketch of what I'm picturing. I haven't decided what to do with his (her?) feet yet. Feedback welcome.

Here's another draft. This time he's holding the controller with his feet. Cheeky monkey!
