    Nice collection!

    Thanks for posting those tutorial links! Really cool tutorials. They actually served as an inspiration for my mascot design, particularly the cow and the monster! Haha. I managed to get the designing team at http://www.mascotdesigncorner.com to turn my vision into reality and at the end of the day, they managed to whip out a cool bear character design to my liking. I can’t ask for anything better. For the price I paid it is indeed a steal! Thanks for the inspiration and your site rocks!
