Knight

The earnest young fowl had no choice but to take the path of knighthood to win the noble pullet's love.

In this piece I chose to utilize several techniques to give the piece a solid feeling of quality. First in designing the knight's armor I opted to extend the visor to properly allow for the knight's beak. In addition, by adding in the lighter chain mail at the neck and on the wing under the pauldron I gave the character a less monotonous design. In addition shading the image with darker colors gives the image a feeling of depth. The castle, and other background elements, were drawn without the thick outlines I tend toward using to let the knight maintain a solid focus and not be drug into it. In addition the small handful of marks atop the castle give the faintest hint of the noble's existence as she looks out over him leaving on his journey. The journey itself is faintly alluded to by the path leading to the knight from the castle gates.

Kinda Spook

This chicken feels kind of spooky. I dunno why, but it's probably those round off green eyes.

The bandito dashed across the desert as night fell over the town.

Let's Start

Looking up at the sky the innocent chicken decides this site needs to get going again. I suppose I agree with him.

Monument

I apologize for the unannounced break. It's been nearly 10 days since the last post so I felt like I should correct that. This will be the only post until Sunday, so hang tight until then folks
"Cock-a-doodle-doo"
I've been working on a game (I'm always working on a few of those but this one I've been focusing on for one reason or another) and I ended up doing pixel art for the whole thing, so while I'm doing pixel art I figured I had to do some for this site too. This is a bronze statue of a chicken. I had one of a person so it goes without saying that I had to make one that's a chicken too.

5 Years of Chicken Maker

With this post I celebrate this site's 5 year anniversary. That's like 35 in internet years. (They're about the same as dog years.)

Anyways this has been a fairly eventful year for this site. I mean I made that RPG, and that card game. There's also the T-Shirts, though no one's ever bought one. I only made them available at all on request. Oh, and I had a great April Fools saying I was done with this site.

Now, as is tradition, I will be posting Green versions of some of my favorites, since it's also St. Patrick's Day.

Toaster Strudel

This is a toaster strudel. I drew a chicken on it with an icing packet. The ads always recommended drawing things on them or writing words but the icing isn't distributed well at all when you do so it really isn't the best idea.

Pi Day

I've been slacking a bit on this site that I generally use my free time to run. That's so good, but I can't not come back on Pi Day. That's March 14th, which is 3-14. 3-14 is analogous to 3.14, which is a general estimate for Pi. That's why I have included 3.14 chickens.

Scarf Glasses

I want to start doing more videos. Maybe I'll even actually talk over them. I actually recording this being drawn. At least I meant to but I apparently used my webcam instead so I just have a nice 5 minute video of me looking vaguely at the screen. Next time I'll have a video.
