A Fan Made Robot

Hi there, 
Seeing as how I’ve been both very bored and broke for the past week or so, I’ve been spending loads of time on the internets.
I found your blog a couple weeks ago and have been checking in every couple days to see what’s new.. I really appreciate your work.
So much so that I was inspired to create something of my own. Mind you, it has nothing to do with chickens, but like I said, I’m bored and broke, so I need cheap entertainment. This is my first real attempt at MS art..
I guess I’m just sending this because it was inspired by your chicken rainbow and nobody’s around right now for me to show it to.
His coat kinda came out pixilated.. I think that’s just because I was using fine lines. I wanted to put a flower on his lapel, but I’m not at that level yet. My idea for him was a timid kind of robot butler, or perhaps waiter at a classy establishment. Hmmm.. Anyways, enjoy!
 
Regards,
Mike


Thank you Mike for showing me your first attempt, even if it isn't a chicken. And thank you for being a fan of mine. I know it's a bit rude but I'm going to pick at it.

First things first. Mike saved his robot butler as a BMP, which is good(unlike jpeg) but not web friendly. It's best to save as a PNG. As for the coat. There's nothing wrong with a bit of pixelation, but since you used gray for the outlines you probably should have colored the whole coat black(maybe with a red tie). I'm supportive of the fact that he had a simple idea behind him. He's a classy robot servant. It's a good base. I must say his slightly crooked grin makes him look a bit evil though.  I actually rather like the floatation rings. Your biggest problem is the tophat.You have the band placed midway up but that goes at the brim, like so.(Sorry. that's rather abstract looking. This earlier rather terrible one may be better)

At any rate your robot looks about on the level of this robot. And I rather like ole batwings there.

Sorry about the lack of  chicken this post. I'll have another up later today
