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.

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.

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.

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.

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)

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.
