    Thanks for posting this list. The tutorials were 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 designing team at http://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.

    A great list, I was already searching for some inspirations. Thanks for this. :)

    Nice character design.

    Interesting designs – i guess it really requires an inhouse designer to have a “business mascot/avatar” like this throughout your corporate comms?
