Finally, I finished the new logo. As seen in my new blog article about drawing food I’ve started to use an owl with a beret as new “figure”.
Well why did I choose an owl? I’ve been told that sometimes I look like a confused screech owl or like an owlet after an espresso. Fair enough, I tend to be a little queer. Or in other words I’m a few fries short of a Happy Meal. 😉 But that’s no hindrance in being happy at all, right? Beside some occasional ramblings about totally unsatisfactory endings of books and films I’m a pretty content person. Lucky me! 😀
There is even a second reason for me choosing an owlet: They are just incredible adorable and cute! Actually this is reason enough for having a flying cutie as logo.
Furthermore I started to play with my new software: Anime Studio (can be bought here as download on Amazon ). Although it’s intuitive to use I had some hours to animate the little owl. Ok, for my first project it’s not too bad… But there is one thing I can tell you: it’s pretty nasty when you loose your feet. Not only for a human, but for an owl as well. I was afraid of going grey because the talons of the owl had their own idea about flying around. And I mean it literally: flying around. Approximately in the middle of the animation both claws came off and skedaddled in two different directions. No idea what I did wrong. But dealing with two wayward feet and one obedient feather ball with hat isn’t how I like to spend my Sunday mornings.
Luckily I managed to bring them closer to each other. Now the claws look a little bit like they itch to run off again (they kind of wobble up and down) but I’m satisfied with the result.
Anytime soon I plan to use this animation as intro to my youtube videos. We’ll see whether the feet will stay with its owner or if they went off backpacking in Asia.
