Contest 002 - Design Mikan-tan!

Right after the end of Design Akai-san comes Contest 002, Design Mikan-tan! Contest 002 starts today and ends in four weeks on August 10th. Your task is to draw and design an original character who will go by the name "Mikan-tan," which means orange (the fruit). Tan is a diminutive suffix generally used with young children and females. It's a slurred version of "chan", so I suppose you could think of it as an even cuter version of that suffix.

Like last time, after submissions close, voting will be open for 1 week. I will have entries up in one post where people can place their vote. The entry with the most votes will become our official "Mikan-tan." You must allow your art to be used in the TCG in graphics such as banners, icons, and cards. Be prepared to have your art featured as the model for future pics of Mikan-tan.

Mikan-tan's appearance
♥ Mikan-tan must wear predominantly orange and have orange hair.
♥ Mikan-tan must wear some kind of hoodie along with arm warmers.
♥ Mikan-tan's shoes must be slippers.
♥ Mikan-tan must be seen with an orange.

Other guidelines
♥ Your art must feature Mikan-tan from head to toe.
♥ Your art must be original and drawn by you!
♥ Drawings must be at least 600px wide and saved as a gif/png/jpg file. I will resize your image for voting, but I will also link your original this time.
♥ Only one submission is allowed per member. Please do not send me variations. I will only take one submission. You are free to include other views of the character, but I will only display one view in the voting post. I will link the rest.
♥ Send your submissions in by email to rykatu[at]yahoo[dot]com as an attachment. Make sure to label the subject of the email with "Colors TCG Mikan-tan submission - your name". Please include the name you use in the TCG since not all emails match up with names.
♥ Please do not post your art elsewhere until voting ends.
♥ The deadline is August 10 at Noon, 12 PM PST time (GMT -8).

If you have any questions or comments, fire away! XD; I expect some cute stuff out of this. <3 All participants will receive participation rewards, so do participate~!

I'm already trying to think up a name for our third character who represents yellow. Kiiro-kun? Or maybe just Ki-kun, since "kiiro" is kind of weird? Any suggestions?
