I like the roundness it gives the smaller, blue logo, but the gradient doesn't look all that great now, the shine in the middle just looks a bit off, i much prefer the earlier one i quoted.

Also, I know it's supposed to be a mascot, but i preferred the slightly abstract look, without the eyes and smile. It was much cleaner.

I agree with you, I prefer the flat version with a single eye, the reason for the mouth is that it could be hard for someone to tell its a fish.

And im not 100% on what the developers of XBMC are looking for in a mascot.
So im trying give as many variants of the concept as i can.

Thanks for the comment

Its a X and a B merged together that also happens to look like a fish, No religious undertones intended.

by "spiff" you mean some more polished ones like I posted some pages ago?

I'm working on some new ones, but work is currently killing me, so I really don't have the time to finish them right now (deadline's near - I know).

By spiff he means the xbmc dev spiff I guess

I think zapy is still the most versatile mascot out tjere. he could be integrated into skins, promotions, conference/exhibit material etc...

I had that troll like idea and had to create it right away Smile Hope that fits somehow as I don't know him in person.

Spiff, you know it's just fun, right?

There are a LOT of great entries so far, but I think it will be a damn shame if you don't win this. That character just lends itself to so many different scenarios.

Great Work!

updated the zappified version of Spiff above. Gave it some more polish and a now branded beer bottle Wink

Well if anything at least this thread has yielded spiff a new avatar!
(I like it!)

Just to be safe, is this the correct time for Central Standard Time (competition ends on June 3rd at 12PM, Central Standard Time)?

Thank you.

P.S. By the way, awesome mascots guys! Congratulations to all of you. Smile

P.P.S. A lot of you deserve the first prize (...therefore there should be more first prizes...hehehe...just kidding Tongue)

vampire, that is, indeed, the correct time.

what about a user customizable zappy?
(If you can do some more the single parts can be switched so everyone
can create it's own zappy like the spiff one Wink

Finally your gfx talent is great.
