[April Fools] Announcing Our New TFP Mascot: Echo!

For TFP server admins to post news or information related to the game servers.

Postby NikkyVix » Wed Apr 01, 2009 5:28 am

You heard right, The Furry Pound's got a mascot of its very own now! His name's Echo, and you'd better catch him on our MotD banner when you log into the servers--he's a fast one with the legs of a Scout and more attitude than any 'Hog you can imagine!

Echo will be featured prominently on every banner we make from here on. Feel free to discuss where you'd like to see him next in our TFP chat or on the forums!

Such an excellent idea to reach out to first time visitors. I think I echo everybody's sentiment when I say that Echo truly embodies the heart and spirit of The Furry Pound.

Okay, it's 4/2 on the East coast, 6:30am. I've held this in as yesterday was 4/1 and I didn't want to spoil things. But that's over, it's time to ruin your day.

Echo would be the first against the wall, followed by whoever grabbed their crayons to scribble this, when Sega and Nintendo lawyers come knocking.

I've had it up to here *points up, where a tail is indicating a level about 24' from the floor* of uncreative Sonic knockoff comics* and artwork. And yet people don't do their research and see the flood of junk that's out there. I've only seen a handful of artists do justice to the characters.

This is fridge art. It never should of been scanned in the first place.

(* I admin Comic Genesis. You won't believe how many sprite-rip comics come in.)

But I love sprite comics!

I believe the first sprite comic was made when some artist was gonna make a proper comic, but played around with sprites until the real comic came up... also the only sprite comic I seen that I actually liked used original sprites so...

Also this being the work of parody should be protected under the American constitution. And this is a American hosted site as far I know.

You know, this is probably the finest indirect compliment I've had on this piece. Because...umm, Striker... it was meant to look like a piece of shit drawn by a Krayola-Kiddy obsessed with stupid Sonic Palette-swap copycat characters. ;) As I told Witchie and the others before it was uploaded, this is the finest clump of utter shit I have ever drawn. EVER.

For the record, I did it entirely digitally in Art Rage. If it looks like crappy fridge art posted by a doting mother, then I did better than I thought.
