Zodiac Pals

I haven't really settled on a name just yet, but this is my new Chinese Zodiac themed something. Maybe like some 4 panel comics or a text-less thing. Anyways Zodiac Pals(working title) is about Chicken, and the couple he's friends with, Ox and Snake. Him and Rabbit are either rivals or outright enemies. It's all based on the Chinese zodiac so I suppose the personalities of each character will also be derived from the Zodiac sign personalities, like I'm a sheep so I'm creative and prefer anonymity. I'm 100% going off the place mat at a restaurant of course.
I believe it's this one.

Happy Easter the internet. How does the faux crayon look?

Ba Boom

This site isn't dead yet, but only time will tell how long it lasts. As previously mentioned it's pretty old for a website. Though, let's be fair, it's still got quite a bit of the "Ba Boom"

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.
