Ai-kon mascot contest entry, two out of two~

Some people from DeviantART might recognize the theme. I originally posted the sketch here for critiques, but it was.. well, I ended up scrapping it after that LOL. ;A; The perspective was from above before, and I just wasn't feeling it. And when I went to do the line art, it just looked so wrong.. :c I'M SORRY GUYSSS

For this one, I got the pose idea first and then the outfit later. For my first entry, I did the design first and pose last. Rofl.

This one ended up being a bit messier too.. I had a week left so I rushed it. I hope it's still okay. Oh, and I also tried making this one a bit more "shonen" than the other. 8D;;
Background just added for posting~!

Wish me luck!!

Character 2012 Ai-kon staff?

Edit, July 25, 2012: changed the background slightly so it would look better as a print! c: You can find the old version here: [link] Thank you!

I remember that during the contest, we directed judges to see this image as well. It was to have context of how this image could look with background designs around her. We request mascots with plain white backgrounds, but this image really popped with your clouds and stars!

Aww thank you Benson!
I'm kind of glad I posted this with a background.. most of the artists don't, but I like having something as a bg. It's hard for me to leave things plain. XD;;

Aw, I kinda like the winner. Besides, maybe it works better on t-shirts/pamphlets/etc than mine does, due to the pose. xD;;
But ANYWAYS. Thank you! <3

Maybe, but they have a lot of factors to think about when choosing a winner. :>

Awww that really sucks! ;A; Are there other cons you can go to though? There must be..
