they announced the winners? damn.
You lucky duck! That lemon face is one of my favorite paint jobs ever.
Honestly not trying to be cynical, but in any case, full props to our main man Brent for making the 'big time' sofubi world.
This was a great release, and I am not shocked it has proven very popular. Otus love, respect man.
just finished up my new sculpt. As usual, it took me way longer than I thought it would,
but I'm really excited about it! It will be around 4" tall and is not owl-based.
I named the company Owl, but that's not all I'll be making.
Super Excited! Can’t wait for some teasers
Otus is easily one of my favorite sculpts. Excited to see the new stuff!!
Can't wait to see what you have been sculpting!
Came here for owl toys, and now you are changing the game. As usual, another maker who dismisses all the things the fans tell them to do; opting for 'creativity' instead. Thanks, thanks a lot. You never see this kind of treatment on the KR forums.
Stoked for the new sculpt, I'm sure it'll be rad! Curious based on the size, I'm sure it'll make a great carry around toy!
What’s up with the teasers, just post a damn photo.
Just a heads up, the next Otus release will be at 5points.
I'll give more details when I have them.
Otus was my most unexpected pickup at Five Points, and definitely a highlight of the show. I only wish I hadn't spent so heavy earlier, so I could have tried for both the painted and mixed-parts releases. Thank you so much @evom for the buckets of weird sensitivity behind this sculpt, and a palette that threw me for a loop in the best way.
Between Saturday and Sunday he was the only toy from the haul that I opened, and I took the chance to take some photos on my walk from my apartment to the con this morning
Here are the photos, under a spoiler tag for some brevity:
Base vinyl looks almost solid in regular light, but outside it reveals itself as a beautiful clear dark green-blue
He plays really nicely with flowers, so I got a few shots in the couple of blocks where people grow different blooms on the sidewalk.
Sneaking into the worksite
And finally, here's a photo you can only take at 6am in New York. Straight down Manhattan Ave in Greenpoint.
^ Beautiful and an incredible release.
Lovely photo @zindabad of a really great toy. Congratulations on a very nice score from Five Points, and kudos to Brent for another wonderful release and continuing excellent output.
Brent did a really great job on that painted green. I missed the announcement and by the time I got in line he was wrapping up the last painted. Definitely excited to see this again.
Painted must of sold quick because they look gorgeous. So happy to have gotten a clear pink. Absolutley dreamy!
what a release!! it’s perfect!! ::hearteyes::
Fuckkkkkk!!! That thing is killer!!! It looks like a green beer bottle. Love that color!
@zindabad great pics! I didnt really get a good shot of that one, so it's cool seeing it in good lighting.
Next release will be a larger run and fully painted.
The light hit REAL nice in this one.
So happy to have him. Thanks @evom !
AGGGHHH MY RETINAS
Beautiful colors !
I picked this up for a good local dude, with Brent’s permission, and with my buddy’s permission got a photo of the Otus bagged! Gettin’ to formally meet Brent was rad, and this painted green Otus is wonderful. The clear fluorescent pink was all sorts of eye burning good.
