    Hi,

    I want to make a cool-looking or cute or goofy site mascot for an future project. It's going to be a site for tourists coming to Hawaii, and my mascot will be a pineapple (cause everything with a pineapple automatically becomes associated with Hawaii, am I right?). Any art guys out here familiar with this sector of art?

    Here are some things I'm pondering:

    - big eyes? only pupils?
    - short limbs?
    - no limbs?
    - stick limbs?
    - no mouth?
    - no nose?
    - carries a picket sign instead of talking?
    - funny name?
    - wears clothes? a hula skirt? slippers? surfboard? or butt-nekkid?
    - details? or just a shape?

    I'm not an art guy at all (if you've ever seen my web comic, you know this already), so whatever route I take, it must be simple enough so that I can make multiple faces/positions of the pineapple.

    Any input would be appreciated.

    -R

    if you find one you like, you can register, and pm the owner and maybe come to a deal (MAKE SURE YOU DRAFT UP A CONTRACT FIRST)
    if no, you can contact an artist whose style you like and ask him to draw you one(MAKE SURE YOU DRAFT UP A CONTRACT FIRST)

    -Cheers!
    Hey you! Go make something!

    If you have to make it yourself get inspiration from the Lord of cuteness: Hello kitty, pikachu and other pokemon or just google kawaii food since we are talking pineapples

    pupils only is cute
    pineapples do not need limbs
    his top leaves can be his hair
    mouth and eyes are the main features in kawaii things
    nose, clothes and names are not necessary
    keep the shapes simple most cute things are just triangles and circles
    an accessory is nice, maybe glasses since hes a smart guy who designs websites

    hope it helped
    and I second Deviant Art awesome site

    Thanks man. Good tips. Pikachu is a great icon to model a pineapple mascot after.
