    Salvidor, the octopus from Montreal, finds it impossible to control his ink sac. He is haunted by a never-ending flow of oddly representational imagery wherever he goes.

    he's the imp, or muse or demon or whatever you want to call him that exists in all of us creative types. He's the inspiration and the frustration you feel. It's at his whim, weather your creative juices are going to flow or if he's just going to jam that pencil into the base of your brain stem and make it impossible for you to create anything you like.

    Montreal Workshop Shaman:
    The Montreal Mascot is the holder of life, love, death, creation, destruction and the birth of imagination. The Montreal Workshop Mascot contains elements of both the Massive Black logo and the Montreal flags colors and the iconic maple leaf.

    [B]MB Montreal MascotB]
    This mascot stands for aesthetic beauty and creativity, it symbolises the ability to manipulate life into an artistic outcome. It also represents the growth of all artists, a unified efficiency, and it has no single identity - only recognisable by a rooster mask.

    Can't pin down why, but octothreat's entry really hits the spot for me. Admittedly (and no offense intented) it's a synergistic thing - the image as a whole (typographically etc) is far stronger that the brevity of the concept. But it gets my vote!

    Walnut, mike, cognition exceptional stuff.

    crazy3dman - good lines let down by the brutal colour job and the conspiciously mismatched proportions.

    chuck mate - it's cool but it just seems a bit too light on. I think it's an intrisic limitation of the medium in this case as the character is pulled off really well. It's very easy to imagine him animated.

    Voted for Mike, awesome.
    And Tom, nothing wrong with mirrored halves. If it works it works. Symetry lends an image a degree of grandiosity and otherworldiness.
    And, if you analize Mike's image carefully, you will realize that the two halves are actually not exact mirrors. Sorry man, don't mean to put your comment down, but this image is too good to let it spoil it for anyone.

    MikeC's and walnut's are my favorites... They are quite different, yet for a mascot I felt the graphic simplicity of walnut is more suitable.

    While there were other enties that were pure genius and incredibly detailed, my vote went to Walnut for staying a bit truer to the mascot theme. He's a very cool looking guy that I could see running back and forth in my office, squaking and crowing, trying to get me creatively motivated... plus who couldn't vote for a Massive Black Cock?

    while cognition's and MIke's are gorgeous illustrations, Walnut's works better as a symbol.
    mike--- I was gonna reccommend you see the work of a printmaker named Dave Morrison, a different take on this same archtypical image...yours is very nice job, but he seems to have no web presence at all ,bizzarre I'll have toget on his case about that

    Thanks guys,

    chaosrocks- thanks, I tried searching too but found nothing. btw- MB is making t-shirts, they go on sale Tuesday there is a thread in the lounge if u haven't seen it.

    I voted for Cognition- loved the mask and colors, perhaps doesn't work so well as an icon but I don't recall seeing that as being a part of the rules or topic, it called for a mascot. I don't think this stuff is going to be used for anything anyhow since the workshop is over so I based my vote off of concept/idea/originality/render and quality as it pertains to the topic of Montreal/Workshop/Mascot and massive black since their linked to the whole thing.

    Voted for Mike. Thought it was the best concept and well-executed. I think it portrays MB well, as it reflects the innovation and symbolism used in their professional work. It also gives an idea of typical video game subject matter.

    As far as icons/symbols/logos are concerned, you can isolate parts of complex designs to make an icon. eg. taking the mask from my piece, the growing maple or skull from mike's etc.

    I probably could've explained the use of my piece further, but as the topic states, I was making a mascot character

    Well I voted for Chuck Mate, the description really got me, "eats skillful mother fuckers, then craps superb art work" This is some of the funniest stuff i have read here.
    Second place is crazy3dman, very funny looking creature and great render job.
    and also cognition really nice concept and render job.

    To tell the truth, Mike you do some pretty nice art work, but I just dont like this one very much, It seems way too stiff, I know it's supposed to be a maple leaf but with the stiff character arms in there Im just not digging the style.
    All around though very nice work from everybody!, Im gonna have to find some time to do one of these soon.
