Now there's a group too!! ~~~>:iconmingos-paradise:

Mingos are an open species. Feel free to make your own Mingo as long as it is for non-commercial use and you do not claim the species as your own. Thank you c:
Here's my final project from my interactive design class! Was planning to publish on the app store but I don't have the funds for a membership at the moment. Someday in the future I hope to publish though~ Also I was originally going to add background sound (which is why there's a mute button) but the file I downloaded didn't come with a sound file. A bit disappointed about that but overall I'm rather happy with the outcome of the whole thing. It was very fun to put together and I learned a lot more about flash than I had known previously!

Well, all I can say is thank you to everyone who continues to enjoy my Mingo species! They've really grown from when I first came up with the idea 2 years ago. If it weren't for the feedback and attention I probably would have dropped the idea. But I hope to continue developing the species as well as creating more resources for you all to enjoy! So as a little gift for continual support I made a little ecology flip-book about them! Hope all you Mingo fans enjoy <3


Illustrations drawn in Paint Tool SAI and Photoshop CS6
Put together in Flash CS6
Special thanks to my teacher for help on coding and my classmates for encouragement~
Please do not repost, thanks. Mingo species is soulwithin465.

I love this concept just so much.
I have to say, I was going to favorite this already, but when I came across the moth drawing I had to stop and favorite it before finishing >o<. (My username is based off of my favorite moth, the Rosy Maple moth)
You sure have a knack for drawing the most adorable yet very detailed and exotic things!
Wonderful descriptions as well and I love the species name! MingoMingoMingo :aww:

I-I am confused. Why are they located on the other side of Canada when BC has the most forests in the country?

:iconsoulwithin465:
soulwithin465 Featured By Owner Dec 24, 2012
Mostly because they flourish better in deciduous forests rather than boreal. So the few boreal forests that they do live in are close to deciduous areas, if that makes more sense c:

The texture of your drawings have changed. They are lot more... well texturized and shiny, but not as shiny as before... but in a good way. There's a defined line between the shadows and the light. :)

If I had a real life pet mingo, it would probably be jumping from place to place all over my house. It would need its own place to frolic and jump, lol.
