There's already an unofficial ReactOS tan too (even if I don't agree with GNU-style horns):

...and here's another (raw) idea from another author:

Last but not least, Deviantart's mascot (Fella) could be a very interesting starting point:

I propose a cartoon dog, who's profession is a car mechanic (because you can mess about with the insides of ReactOS :) )
(something like this, but drawn)
(maybe I'll give it a go in a bit)

His name would be Sparky! :lol:
because yknow.. atoms have electrons and stuff, and.. it relates to electricity.. sort of.. (I really need to brush up on my physics :oops: )

also... PROTIP
If you have a good Idea, and are gonna draw it...
PLEASE refrain from using ReactOS's mspaint replacement
Everything that comes outta there has a kinda "crappy" sheen to it if you understand what I'm saying ;)
(of course, you are still a million times better than me because you actually bothered to draw something)

I like the "ROS fan girl" photo overall, but do want to offer my critique. I wonder how she'd look as a redhead?

But then there are the symmetry issues. Her head is irregular and shaped a bit like a potato. The square chin area doesn't look all that attractive. The mouth, while that could be a design decision and follows the "lines of design" rule of art, appears to be in the wrong place. Now, with the way her nose is drawn, it does make sense to favor her left side (viewers' right), but then, that makes no sense in terms of perspective.

Then we move onto her hemline and calves. The hemline has about a 15 degree tilt, and one of the pleats is suspiciously uneven. There are also missing features such as elbow creases and at least the lower part of the knees (going by skirt length). Her calves are a tad inconsistent with each other, and then there is the unnatural pronation of her toes.

Oh, and some silly ideas popped into my head. With the existing OS tans, what if she could be depicted interacting with them? Maybe she is pulling the XP girl's hair. Oh, and that could explain why this girl is missing some areas of hair (got ripped out in a fight).

my suggestion:

the silhouette of a blue hippo - with the ReactOS Logo in its body.

Worry about a mascot after ReactOS is stable and has at least one million users.

Yeah, agreed, wait until it is more stable. That would change the type of mascot too I think. Right now, a fast but clumsy amputee or anorexic girl on her cell phone, who isn't that pretty might be appropriate. In other words, someone who isn't all there and who'd crash into things. Maybe we can work towards her being a ballerina who is neither anorexic or obese and who can win in a track race.
