I need a soccer mascot for use on the soon-to-be relaunched Unofficial Football World Championships website (http://www.ufwc.co.uk). The UFWC is a fun and exciting fan-led international soccer competition, and its history dates back to 1872, 58 years before the first World Cup.
The mascot could be an animal, but please try to avoid animals that have already been used as World Cup and soccer mascots etc. And please avoid recognisable team shirts. Like the UFWC, it needs to be unusual and alternative. How about a dodo?!
You could include a soccer ball in the design to show he or she is a soccer player.
Here is a list of previous World Cup mascots. Some are awful! The nearest to what I'm looking for is the last one, South Africa's Zakumi:
The mascot will be used primarily on the website, but might later be used on other items e.g. t-shirts, caps etc. Who knows, one day he might be turned into a full-size mascot oufit!
The final mascot needs to presented on white background in 4 different poses for variety. Photoshop .PSD file format please.
Enjoy the contest!
