I.


It's been quite a while since my last alphabet letter so I figure now is as good a time as any. I actually rather like the Dark [COLOR] outline filled with [COLOR]. I may want to do more like that in the future. Anyways since I is symmetrical I decided to make this one a chicken mirrored onto both sides.

Also I'm working on a new secret project, for which I'll release some info soonish, so if there are any notable delays in my activity that project is the reason. Mind you, since I'm resuming the Alphabet so I should be able to maintain a good release rate.

Not a Video


Alrighty, I got Blogger to stop hating me. I just had to switch to the fancy In Draft Version for some reason. Of course once I was here I went. You know, I should post a video of some advanced chicken draw since I apparenlty have a video upload thing. Then I noticed it didn't work and was like "Heh..." And I started fiddling with my computer until it finally said, "Alright" At this point I hunted down the video file only to find that it had been corrupted and I couldn't post it anyways. That was really rather annoying. Not I'm gonna have to record another round of chicken make. I mean how am I supposed to deal with that sort of thing. I thought it would have been interesting too... Realy shame. Anyways this chicken is the one that my old corrupt video was of me making.

Chicken Back in Black

Chilly the Snowchicken [Christmas Event END]


Chilly the Snowchicken, was a savory happy soul,
With a radish waddle and a carrot beak, and two eyes made of coal.
Chilly the Snowchicken, is a fairytale, they say.
He was made of snow, but the children know he came to life one day.
There must have been some magic in that old red glove they found,
For when they placed it on his head, he began to dance around!
Oh, Chilly, the Snowchicken, was alive as he could be;
and the children say he could cluck and peck,
just the same as you and me. 


 Good song, neh?

Anyways that brings this Christmas update to a close

Rudolf?


This chicken has dressed up like Rudolf to celebrate the Christmas season. He's a bit bummed out though, because they won't let him join in any reindeer games.(because he's clearly a chicken) Due to this sorrowful fact he is forced to stand around with his head down.

Gift to Y'All



This chicken is a gift and he has been under that tree for nearly a month. He's just been waiting forever for you to show up and finally let him out. This is only the beginning of this Christmas ChickenMaker rush.

HYPER CHRISTMAS UPDATE SPECIAL!! START!!


This chicken is in the Christmas spirit. He's got the hat and is laughing "HO HO HO!" because that's the sort of thing he ought to be doing, isn't it? Anyways this one's a tad lazy on the actual chicken but the 2 snowflakes that I sprinkled onto the image make up for that. It's not like it was a terrible one after all.

Also this Christmas update is scheduled to be posted throughout the day. It's gonna be quite big so be sure to check a few times

Something Wrong With Eyebrows


This slick young man is worried that people are looking down on his just because he has styling eyebrows. Everyone knows he's just being silly and that they are really very awesome but they keep saying things despite that because they're cruel to him because he gets all the girls with his slick comb and masculine eyebrows.

Naked Chick



 Let's be straight here. You expected nothing else at all when you saw the title. I mean all that I put on this site is pictures of chickens, so of course the 'Naked Chick' was just going to be a featherless chicken. I had attempted to do a baby chicken but my mouse refused to work with me so that's one I'll be saving for a later date

One Who Roosts


This is a rooster. He looks a bit angry, but that's just because you haven't gotten to know him yet. Under those angry solid black eyes and scowling beak he's a generous friend. He just roosts all day.

I wasn't actually sure what that word meant so I looked it up in the good old Webster online dictionary.


Main Entry: [2]roost
Function: verb
Date: 1530
intransitive verb

1 : to settle down for rest or sleep : perch
2 : to settle oneself as if on a roost
transitive verb
: to supply a roost for or put to roost


Having read this there's one obvious thing I realize... I also like to settle down for rest or sleep.

Also I may become distracted soon, but worry not compatriots. I have my big old (multi-part) Christmas Update scheduled to post on the 25th whether I remember or not.

Warhol?

On his fine... Saturday evening I have for you my good men one of those Warhol 4 panel chickens. Mind you I looked around a bit and I couldn't actually find a single one of these by Andy Warhol. Just a lot of Warhol style 4 panel things. I thought I found one but it turned out to be a nine panel thing. The whole thing makes it very hard to trust common terms when you can't find any basis for them at all.

All that having been said this piece represents the different facets of the personality of this one chicken. Just look at them one by one. The envious green, the angry red, the smooth and cool blue one and the... purple one.

Eyes Wide Open



Okay well, here we go again kiddos. Today on the Chicken Maker we have a fine display of an uptight chicken with some wide open eyes. That's all there is to it. Now boys, don't you go off ditching on me just cause you have lamer friends who want to please. Just bring them over to this site too.
December 16, 2009

Real Effort


Today I put in some real effort. The cell-shading-esque art found in this piece is rather indicative of my usual style, though I opted to forgo the usual outlines in favor of the more fluid style seen above. The background was chosen to blend in, emphasize the body and still remain distinct from the foreground. The spark of light in the eyes is a small break that makes it feel more natural than it otherwise would while the shading falls rather uniformly giving it a pleasant feel.

There was a real effort put into the piece but it lacks any interesting distinction to leave it truly memorable.

NUMBER TWO-HUNDRED!!

200. Yes indeed. It's hard to believe I made it to post number 200. I've posted over 200 pictures on this site and it's still going strong. Some day all people will know the greatness of this site.

I feel like a need a cape to throw out to the side when the wind blows by...

You know I think I might spring for a web address some time. Of course for some damnable reason "Capt Jeff's Potato Salad Mix" owns chickenmaker.com and before them Cherry Delight had it. Makes it hard to trust people.
December 14, 2009

World Of Swirls

Yes indeed. This is a good day. This guy lives in a world of swirls and is slightly vacant and insane. The cresents of his reality drove him to complete insanity.

December 13, 2009

Starburst eyes


Feels like a good day to double up so you also get this one. I would have some long convoluted explanation but I can't actually remember what I was thinking when I made it. Those eyes make his seem more intense. I have no idea what those blue things are supposed to be though.
December 13, 2009

FIGHT!! SUPER C!!


Okay. Here we've got the super hero who I forgot to name and am, as such, going to refer to as "Super C" up agaisnt the villainous Chicken-Snake. Once a brilliant scientist he was spliced with Giant-Garden-Snake-DNA in a freak lab accident. With his green skin, unhinging jaw, and giant-ness, he started to rampage and steal jewels... That one might not have made much sense. The brave and mighty Super C fought with bravery to protect the City.

Also we're on track for the... *thinks of name* HYPER CHRISTMAS UPDATE SPECIAL!! (the !! is part of the title)


December 11, 2009

Tatters

 In a world of black and white there are the tatters of those who fall between. That which is in the torn edges of reality is a shadow of possibilities, hopes, despairs, living, breathing, crying, loving, and life. That's what's in reality. Reality isn't black and white it's what's in between.

Next up we'll be having a generic old-school hero. Those guys are all about the black and white.

Chik-Cell Battery


The Chik-Cell Battery is the greatest in the worlds. It is more durable than Duracell. It is more Energetic than Energizer. Just look how energetic that chicken is! With the Chik-Cell Battery you're "Glad to be Going."


 That's their motto after all. Much more reasonable than that nonsense like "It just keeps going and going and going and going..." and so forth.

So, we all agree that  if these were real you would choose them over things like Duracell and Energizer and Generic Batteries.

Grid Chicken


Today I drew a chicken on some (MS-Paint) graph paper. I like him. His name is Yuri. Based on the fact that I arbitrarily named him Yuri it is obvious that he is a Russian. That, or a Spanish or Japanese woman. I've already said 'He' several times though and I'm far too lazy to change my mind.  
 
Anyways as I was saying Yuri is a Russian Grid Chicken, part of the insane Soviet War Chicken plans during the Cold War... Stay tuned for a War Chicken at some point in the future.

Minor in Style

This guy has all the classic signs of an arbitrarily put together pile of accessories being called style. He's got a scarf blowing in the wind behind him and his goggles are clearly off the hook. I actually rather like the way he looks but he definitely has no style. He's probably really tough though so no-one's going to tell him that his style is bad or he'll take them down.

In case you can't tell I'm feeling much better today than when my brain hurt. My last final is on Thursday. Wish me luck.

HEN SHIN!


I watched some Kamen Rider today and when he transforms he says "HENSHIN" which is Japanese for transform or some such thing. I couldn't help but think "Hen Shin" though so it was obvious that I needed a picture of a hen attacking a shin.

Shades McCoolguy


Shades McCoolguy, former Private Eye. Hired by the PETA to hunt down that sick bastard... The Colonel. He would kick that guys eyes out. However during his investigation he fell in with the 7 secret herbs and spices. After being corrupted he started selling out his brothers...


November 30, 2009

Dark and Horrible



Okay, as promised The Dark and Horrible Sight seen by the previous chicken. I feel that the pupils make it look more insane. The jagged beak combines well for an image of carnage. The background explodes with blood, death and evil eyes. I left the evil chicken in white for the purposes of contrast
November 29, 2009

Trauma Strikes...



This chicken had experienced a horrible traumatic experience. His eyes show his sontant shock. He doesn't even take care of himself anymore. The dark and horrible sight he saw NEXT TIME ON CHICKEN MAKER!

Probably.
November 28, 2009

Doctor Evil D'Coolname


This is a mad scientist. You can tell that he's insane because of the lightning. He's probably rich too, since he's got that fine monocle on his left eye. You can't hear it but he's laughing maliciously at you even now. Also look at that crazy spiky comb. My only regret is that I didn't stretch this one down.

Not sure what you'll be getting next, but you'll get it before midnight.

EDIT: I'm a liar. I ended up finishing my stupid book tonight though.

Unexpected Thanksgiving


Back when I made my April Fool's Turkey I never expected this site would continue having content until actual Thanksgiving. As such I do not have a new turkey. I instead present this chicken in a state of shock and awe. He found this development to be unexpected


November 24, 2009

Cave Painting


I imagine that this is what this site would be like if I had been around back in caveman times... and cave wall blogging was in. Look, you can't really expect my rambling to make sense. This is a cave painting chicken. He's very dull and plain.
November 24, 2009

Chicken Punk


Well, this punk-ass kid is clearly a loser. He's chicken themed though and did up his hair and beard to be his comb and waddle. For some reason he looked Asian to me when he was black and white. I have absolutely no idea why. Also that nose sucks.

Politichicken: Three of Three: With Double The Chicken


At last we reach the final part of the Politichicken series. As I'm sure you can tell this is an Elephant Chicken and a Donkey Chicken on top of an American flag-like background. This one is all about how there is no need for that nonsensical arguing over political affiliations because in the end we all love America. That's what really counts after all, when you get right down to it. We may disagree on what we need to do for the nation, but it's the one we all love...

Except you Americans who keep saying things like "America is an awful country." and "*insert country they've never been to* is much better than America."

There's nothing against you non-Americans. You don't have anything to do with this piece though. I hope that you love your home country.

Politichicken: Two of Three


The Poltichicken goes head to head with the democratic donkey.

I don't have any real negative things to say on that note. This is a nonsense blog and no one cares about my politics.

Once more Part Three will be awesome.



November 20, 2009

Politichicken: One of Three


The republican elephant talks to the Politichicken. This is part one in my three part series.

Also, more importantly, elephants have a good number of simple tells. Donkey is a bit trickier.
Part 3 will blow your mind.

Sky Blue


I don't know why I called this one sky blue, but I did and I can't do anything about it now.
Also I've discovered that I can no longer type with the two finger seek and peck method. I also can't type properly but I'm cool with my method. I don't look at the keyboard and every once and a while my hands cross for seemingly no reason...

You know, if I wanted to talk about my typing habits I probably should have made a chicken typing something... I'm such a fool.
November 16, 2009
After a short hiatus I return with a chicken themed super hero the likes of which have most probably never been seen before.


When trouble brews he is there
When evil lurks he sees it
When darkness threatens he arrives
And with his cluck of justice...
BAM! POW! KA-CHOP-a-doodle-doo!

November 12, 2009

Squares, Yeah?


Okay, we slammed down some squares. Layers and layers of squares. Slammed 'em right on under a nice chicken shape. I hope that you understand the concept of squares, layers and layers. It's all nice and striped but no, squares. You just gotta keep an eye on it. 
 
You got me?

Devious Monster

 
It came to my mind all at once. The horror it would show. I had to put my (digital) pen to (digital) paper before it fled away from me. The image had to come forth into the world.

This chicken has a shocking glare. The devious stare of the monstrous chicken are incomparable. Evil eyes, belonging to neither man not chicken, stared into your soul. The red lightning of his vision cracks through the mind.

The dark shadows falling upon his body bring a force upon the appearance. The jagged details scattered through the image increase the feeling of evil. At a glance it lacks nothing. When you give it some time though it feels lacking. I don't know what it's missing but there is a lack for something.
November 09, 2009

From the University


Okay. This is my first time posting from the University computers. I have rather pleasantly discovered that they have the original MS Paint. It's nice to use the stark colors I associate with that. I mean I use them most of the time anyways, but it's nice to have them as my default pallet.

Anyways today's chicken is just hanging out and having fun on a pleasant day. Basically I had no theme so I just doodled until it looked nice.

Her Focus



After a long time meditating deeply on the issues the bright light of possibility seems to emanate from her. It surpasses any dull limits she has run into. The endless focus on how to be better has simply compounded into the aura of what is possible beyond what she has already achieved.

You may have noticed that I was using female pronouns. Now I'm not sure what tertiary sexual characteristic I'm picking up on here but this one seems feminine. It's probably the eyes. Oh, and as far as legitimate ones the waddle is rather small, as is generally the case with female chickens, though the comb is rather large. Of course as a human I'm sure those didn't factor into my mind at all.

The Moze Knows

Okay someone took me up on that "If you have a guest chicken" thing pretty quickly. I'm more than happy to accept it you understand.
This is a Spawn Chicken. It was made by "mozersmozer," a styling young lad. Now he actually sent me a jpeg earlier but he knew he should be ashamed of it and withdrew it because he's all sorts of awesome. He then remade it and submitted what you see now.

Now, I like it and all but I must say it gives me the impression of a penguin. Probably the lack of a waddle. I mentioned that to him and he just shot me a "Don't need it." so I'm sure he knew. The comb feels a bit tacked on since it lacks the shading the rest of the image sports but I can't really hold that against him.

I was a fan of Spawn so I can really appreciate this one. I can also say I wish those eyes were more glow-y.

Oh, anyone interested can see the one he withdrew here. Real awesome guy redoing it like that.

Briones Sucks Now

 
You know I used to think that Briones might be better than me just because his looked nicer and he had more talent. But this one has restored my faith. Firstly it's a jpg which as I've explained numerous times means you just don't care. You see jpgs leave all sorts of artifacts on colors. Also the bottoms don't match up at all. I'll admit that the exploding eye is pretty good. I wouldn't have ever thought of it after all. It's a real shame that despite his talent he doesn't put very much real caring or passion into it.

I unfortunately don't have enough energy to explain to you more thoroughly right now internet but just remember that I'm the best.

If anyone would like to submit some sort of guest chicken then get me at kaloo0 on AIM.

H.




This is the next letter in the alphabet. I bet you never expected it but H is the one immediately following G. Knowing this I acted fast and made it lime green.
November 06, 2009

Book Read!


This is a nerdy chicken with those big round nerd glasses. He's reading a big old book sitting on a table. There's even some nice dull pink wallpaper.
 Oh, I'm doing NaNoWriMo this year because I try and fail to do that every year. It's actually not going bad this time. I've got a vague generic plot and everything.




November 05, 2009

G.

G is the 7th letter of the alphabet
Such favorites as "Great," "Good," "Geometrical," and "Googolplex" start with this letter.

Now, I gotta ask... Was the style on this one a bad call? I mean it's kinda like a chicken-snake sorta thing.
November 02, 2009

Why Not?


This one's dull and predicatble. Why is it I always come up with something so lacking after I do something that sounds interesting. Well I guess I run out of interesting. Anyways check his pupil-have.  Resuming my alphabet soon.

HALLOWEEN GUN BATTLE!!


CHICKEN FIGHTS DEVIL WITH MACHINE GUN.
You see the devil represents... the devil, and the machine gun represents the fun times of Halloween. Meanwhile the chicken is a sign of the children, who are defeating the devil with fun. You see the greatness of the fun times we used to have was that they were scary sometimes but now they're boring. Mind you that's not important. What's important is that...
CHICKEN FIGHTS DEVIL WITH MACHINE GUN.

Oh, and I cut in the pumpkin for extra Halloween.
October 30, 2009

Outta The World


At first I was just gonna do a silhouette but that was rather dull and I recalled that one I did quite some time ago, that Crazy Whatzit. I just kept applying layers of design, using MS Paint of course, until I got this result. I think the pale orange rounded boxes(you can see it in the lower left) could have used another layering looking at it now. Still it looks like crazy.
October 29, 2009

sick and dying


I was sick so this poor guy is sick and dying. I made him slightly green and had his waddle and comb go pale because green and pale are commonly associated with being sick. Then I gave him some eyes and I played with those until they gave the right impression of "Oh lordy... What did I do to deserve this..." I didn't quite get that impression but this was close as I could get without putting a few weeks into this guy.
 
Anyways I'm feeling much better now so I should be getting back into the swing of things. I hate stumbling on this site. I mean I'm sure no one cares but I get a feeling of satisfaction from the fact that people I don't know have looked at something I made.




October 26, 2009

Cause Yeah


This one right here is a nice sensible super deformed chicken. He thinks he's better than you 'cause he regularly has to wave off his dozens of fans. I like him so if you don't I'll call you a jerk who knows nothing about art, even though I know even less.

Symbol Chicken

This is the Devil witchcraft symbol chicken. I don't particularly like it but I said I was going to make one in that very vague picture set. Anyways the symbols are 666, a pentagram, a pair of upside-down crosses and the mark that was burned onto people suspected of being witches during the Salem Witch Trials. This is completely meaningless and shouldn't be taken as anything other than a pile of assorted symbols in a vaguely chicken-esque shape. And let's be straight here. Don't read anything into this. It's just like you know the summoning circle for the devil chicken or some such.
