Weaving Owls by trenchmaker Weaving Owls by trenchmaker
Aaaannndd another job I did for schmidt Spiele last year. My tasks were "make cute owls and a girly package". Hell yes! The editor had a very specific look in mind and it was a last minute thing with a missing prototype but the final product is effin cute.
The violet owl was (as you can see... hopefully) for the front of the box, the greyscale owl is in the (black n white) manual and gives additional information. Greyscale painting is not my forte but something I won't run away from in the future.

I got my sample yesterday in the mail and was happy that the production company did a pretty amazing job with the colors.
The box is actually the weaving frame which is nifty and the complete metall box fits into a normal handbag.

I hope I can do some more of these owls for Schmidt these year. *sigh*

Sorry for the watermarks (as always).

Attention
At the moment we (my best friend aka my lawyer and I) are hunting illegal merchandise. IF you ever see one of my mugs floating in stores or the web outside of Deviantart: These are ILLEGAL. Please let me know immediately if you see anything. It's hunting season through Europe at the moment but god knows where the original culprit comes from.

Hm, it should be available on ebay soon- the international shipping companies usually need a bit longer to list it. The release date is tomorrow. The initial price is 6,29 Euro.

Oh! So cute! I love the color scheme in the lilac one, and you did a great job on the grayscale, too - I liked the soft shading, it adds depth to the character, and the eyes seem to sparkle, even in monochrome! ^^
Great job!

what should we do IF we see some of yourr mugs? Buy them as a proof? Make a photo? or what?
Just if it happens sometime, then I know what to do :)

Best would be to make a photo of both the mug and wher it's sold. That's normally a good proof.
With a photo and the contact info we can jump their backs.
Otherwise ... I'm against buying because it means you'll be feeding the thief machine but if there's a lgo printed on the bottom of the mug with the company name and "made in blabla" and it's not too expensive... yes. It might even happen that I ask you to sell it to me so we have the verification at the lawyers office. The Zara people had no excuse once I had the illegal sweater in my hands so basically.... everything is helpful.

It annoys me so much. Because really... they could license the stuff. They just have to ask. Spending money on a license is cheaper than the costs of a lawyer's bill. I'll never understand that logic.

... it's not as if Zara didn't have enough money for their own designers... that's the second time I heard that about Zara, not going in there anymore.
