Back in September nominations for the Golden Gnome awards opened, we had previously made the short list (thank you!) and I had posted asking for your support. I'm excited to share we won. Officially the 'Best New OSRS Artist' for 2020. It's great to be recognized in this way, I appreciate all of you who voted.
Now for some updates. Currently we have four pre-orders open. The first to drop are Zuk, Bob the cat, and Chins - in that order. Then we're focusing on another batch of Jads.
For this next batch of Jads we've actually changed the design slightly from a technical perspective. The actual appearance remains the same, except quality will be better. What we've done is split the feet into separate parts, the reason for this is to make polishing the sides more accessible.
For Jads we use a two-part mold, and the way it's oriented leaves the seem running straight down the sides. This leaves a big line of flashing that has to be removed. This has always been a trouble area because Dremel's didn't like to fit in there, no longer is that a problem.
As for future plans after we've finished all of the above. I think we're going to do some more Vorkaths, I've received 5 or 6 emails requesting more so that's a good sign there's still interest. We also plan on doing Bandos and some popular skilling pets.
I think these simple iconic monsters are what to do going forward. Zuk has been a hard sell, I think because most people don't have any special affinity for him since it's end game content they've yet to reach.
Always open to ideas and suggestions. This is how we pick what to do next, so if there's anything you'd like to see please do let us know!
