The creation of the mecha girl in my banner was accidental in nature. It came from this post at dannychoo.com about a bust of an anime girl. A bust is a sculpture of a person’s head, shoulder and chest. So FatB, a fellow member suggested why not give her Fauna ‘s lower half and a pair of Gundam arms.
Inspired by FatB’s comment, I did some cut and paste in Paint (didn’t have Photoshop at that time) and came out with this.
kintaro, another fellow member saw it and did a sketch. Danny suggested I use it as my mascot for my site but back then I didn’t have a blog so didn’t put it to use. Kintaro has also agreed to let me keep her.
The mascot was part of the reason I started a blog since I did not want the picture to be wasted. ^^;
