A Toy Line I'm Making Feb. 21st, 2012 @ 06:56 AM Reply

Hi. This is a plush toy line I'm trying to make.
What do you guys think?

I'm doing a funding project on kickstarter, to see if I can fund it.
Here it is: http://kck.st/zkB0Kn
Take a peak if you'd like to see it. There's also more info and pictures to look at.

Thanks.

It looks really cool, and the story is a good idea.

Thank you.

Can't draw on this, but maybe later I'll do some sort of vinyl toy.

The main focus is the storybook and art that's not released yet.
The toy is just to see how well we can do on Kickstarter from zero.

Called Kuro. Sounds a bit too much like Kuru, and Kuru isnt very nice.

It's a big ass head with 3 lines drawn on it. I'm sure american idiots will love it though. We eat up anything that's sounds foreign and kinda girly, and that's superbly simple all at the same time.

how do you feel about the asian market? china, hong kong, japan

by the way, i do see now that the character seems simple. we're planning to launch a series of art that contrasts against his plain appearance, that was the intention

I like it except for the eyes and mouth being so small. I realize that's intentional but it still feels like there's too much negative space and that it could benefit from having slightly larger eyes & mouth.

Wait, if you don't reach your goal of 9000$ and don't start making this plush, do you get to keep the extra? Or does it get sent back to the chumps?

Then the people who pre-ordered, they don't get charged. It's kinda like a test ground to see if you can do well at no risk.

I've gotten a few comments now regarding the eyes and mouth, shape and size.
Lemme pull out a pen and see what I can do...
