This is the 2nd character in our "family", Brewster being the first. They will soon be joined by two more who are already under development.
We've been asked a few times why we have developed our own characters rather than using ones which already exist. Well there are a few reason:
- Just about every character which already exists is covered by copyright, it would cost us more to use an existing character than it does to work with an artist to develop our own.
- People identify a character, or set of characters with a particular company. We want people to identify these characters with Free Craft Downloads.
- Even if you pay the license to use an existing character there are lots of restrictions as to what you can do with them. e.g. if we paid to use an image of Winnie the Pooh we still wouldn't be allowed to show him propped up against a bar with a pint in one hand and cigar in the other! As these are our own character we'll be able to do what we want with them.
- We may choose, at some point in the future, to let other crafters have ago at developing some papers using our characters. You can't do that unless you control the copyright.
