    Here is look at the black and white of our latest mascot Amy Pinn.
    We think she rules!
    Yes the monkey is still a here and isn't going anywhere.
    We just thought it was cool to have another less simian and less....altered...mascot

    I like it. Can you make her into a WW2 nose art pin up girl? I always thought that art was awesome.

    #3 11 months ago

    Thanks!

    She'd make a nice avatar too.

    I'd like to see a game with the bird lifting up her skirt with it's beak on the backglass.

    #7 11 months ago

    Hmm...wonder if this has anything to do w/pin number 3?

    #8 11 months ago

    Looks great- planning on doing a color version?

    #9 11 months ago

    Meh. Kind of looks like a dude. Make her more feminine.

    #11 11 months ago

    I think it looks great. Any plans on how it will be used? Tees? Stickers?

    Thanks! I'm thrilled to get such positive reception from the community. I've been working on it for a long while and I'm really excited for the finished color version to get out there soon (it's been updated a bit since this line art). For the record, this is an original design that I created and isn't related to an AP game. Stay tuned!

    #13 11 months ago

    Nice work! I'm a fan of WWII art flying aces and stuff myself.

    I quite like it.

    If you're looking for constructive criticism I've got two things (both are boob related as boobs are two of my top five favorite things).

    1) Larger boob size.
    2) More cleavage.

    More like limited edition.
    Now it is a collectors item.

    I think it's good, but no harm in it being a little more feminine, even in these PC times!

    #17 11 months ago

    T-shirt B/W and color, poster, and stickers are planned stay tuned!
    The monkey still lives here as well she isn't a replacement

    #18 11 months ago

    So the real question is what will come first mascot number 3 or game number 3

    Do a work shirt like you did with Houdini. Seemed like a good seller. I waited to long and was aced out on that one. I’d totally pick up on one with this art.

    #20 11 months ago

    Love the art style and subject matter...she needs more curves

    #21 11 months ago

    Boys will be boys, I agree with them, I combined Stern's Elvira Back Glass with the logo what do you guys think of the quick render / redraw ?

    #23 11 months ago

    I like it, screams... 'merica. Ignore the haters and posters who want more curves and disproportionate parts.

    Real question is: Red head, blonde, brown, or raven hair? My vote is red

    Amy Pinn could work well for more female focused games: Amelia Earhart, Joan of Arc, WW2 pin with Amy and Rosie the Riveter (all if you want to keep non-licensed).

    #24 11 months ago

    It just dawned on me Amy Pinn is a play on AMerican PINball. Get it ? I’m either pretty clever or half an idiot if that’s obvious to everyone else. Lol

    #25 11 months ago

    I'm usually up for more curves but I like this as-is. Great job!

    #26 11 months ago

    In other news a crazed monkey in a bumper car has been seen wrecking havoc in the Chicago suburbs today... news at 11...

    So the real question is what will come first mascot number 3 or game number 1.

    I assume you meant to say game number 3??

    #29 11 months ago

    Amy is a general mascot not tied directly to any games

    I completely agree! Pinball always brings out the 15 year old in me...

    #31 11 months ago

    Coming from an illustrative background, I feel the eagle needs some refinement, lose some of the peculiar angles of the beak, refine it's chest and form a bit, or just define it more.

    Her shoulders and hips are quite matched up, for me anyway, appropriately. I like her face a good bit!

    The eagle would be a bit too weighty to hold on a forearm. Maybe it, or a bomber, could be releasing those pinballs above her head?

    I like the angle of her gaze, shows a dynamic nature sans an over the top pose.

    I feel like her straps could use a bit more contour, flow with her form/figure, and show a bit more depth.

    Nice overall design, and conveys a message pretty easily overall!

    Quoted from DRDAVE:

    Joel is da man!

    ...referring to Joel de Guzman, who is also Artist-in-Chief for Pintastic New England. We New Englanders are so proud of him!

    This is the type of constructive feedback that I appreciate - thanks! All good pointers. I think it’s too late in the game to make drastic changes, but it has evolved a bit since this version and the full color art (which should be coming soon) definitely has a lot more depth, light, and shadow. I’ll certainly keep your comments in mind for whatever I do next!

    #34 11 months ago

    I like it but the eagle needs to be more badass. Right now he looks like a parrot with a beer gut.

    I did lol. Early morning. Looking forward to the next one.

    True. I’m proud of my wife’s, and the way my coworkers dress, they’re fans of the upper torso accouterments themselves.

    Hey, it’s nature.

    The way the monkey got them spanked I'm surprised they aren't concave.

    Thank you for receiving them well, and above all for putting in some hard work, use of your skill, and passion in helping API with their branding!

    Sexuality and sexism aren't necessarily always the same concept. We can sexualize, see sexuality, crave it, and not demean, demoralize, or devalue a person in the same sense. Empowerment of sexuality can often negates sexism.

    And yeah, that Spiderwoman cover was just egregious for anatomy reasons alone.

    #42 11 months ago

    OK
    so this is what I have learned...

    Rest of the internwebs: Hey that is pretty awesome I would buy that on a T-shirt

    Pinside: MOAR BEWBS!!!

    Joel, you were hired by American Pinball to design something that we liked, that represented us as a company... You knocked it out of the park!!

    The overall reaction is incredible.

    Awesome Job.

    Amy Pinn sounds cool but can’t spell AmERICAn without the “Erica”.

    Quoted from zahner:

    That's very cool. Is the person pictured in your Pinside icon the inspiration for "Amy"?

    I’m not the artist. His name is Joel De Guzman

    I did an interview with him a few weeks ago. Look at post 44 for a link if interested
