Thanks heaps for posting this. It is really inspiring. I tried illustrating a mascot design for a project of mine and couldn't seem to get it right. In the end I decided on getting some professional help. The designers at www.mascotdesigncorner.com managed to realize my vision of illustrating a character design that was above expectations. I highly recommend them. For the price I paid it was indeed a steal. I guess I am not good at designing at all. Anyway, thanks for providing a source of inspiration I might add. This site rocks big time...
