Vacation

I thought I mentioned it earlier, but apparently not. I'm on a trip. Left on the 26th and won't actually be back until the 2nd or 3rd. You will definitely have a New Years post though.

I like Hawaiian shirt chicken by the way.

Chicken Santa

Chicken Santa stands in the foreground. Observe his slightly darkened colors meant to represent the fact that it's dark out, since it's night time. At any rate he's rather Santa-ish. In a generic Santa sort of way.

Meanwhile in the background shadows Chicken Santa's sleigh is driven away by Chicken Santa and his Flying Chickens. A wonderful Christmas.

Fancy

This is a fancy picture with a lot of little strokes instead of thick outlines. It makes it look more artistically legitimate, plus it gives a ragged powerful look.

... Well, I can't think of anything else to say. When I drew it I remember having a lot to say but then I had to leave before I posted...

Blind Grit

He has no eyes.

But he is strong.
          And will see us through the darkness.

Chicken Change


Okay. I got two coins. And I got a Wallpaper made out of them. I imagine the background as being the treasure of the great chicken pirate, Wattle-Beard... Who I will be drawing later.

I preference the Gold coin over the Silver by a fair margin, but I think that's because I made it first so the second I was somewhat focused on making it, "Not the first one" Also I apologize, but to my surprise even the two coins side by side are too big to put up here full size either. I wasn't even planning on having the silver at first, but when I first started on the background it looked too monotonous so I added the silver to you know. Mix it up.

Skate-Free

No skating. It's right on the sign, but that's not what it says. It says no ice skates. And this chicken didn't see any problems with that at all. So the chicken started practice to become a championship figure skater. It was a dream and even if the chicken didn't have anywhere else to practice... this dangerous frozen lake was a chance.

This is my flawless comeback! It won't cut off again.

Still Shaken

Sorry for the heavy delay. I got sick again. It was pretty bad. Anyways I'm still a bit shaken up but I feel much better than I did.

Math Fall

Well, my Calculus III exam is tomorrow so I made a drawing of some math. The chickens fall through the math. The horror that comes as they fall through the horrible mess of mathematics. I like the near bald one on top of the Plus sign. (+) As for why no big old multiplication sign... the x is too much like the +, and the dot is too simple.

SMASH HAMMER!

This is a mighty chicken. He swings his hammer with endless force. No one would ever dare to challenge his devastating hammer if he faced off against them.

Fortunately he is kind and rules over his lands with a smile, mostly using his hammer on rail stakes.

Within Loops

Within the glowing green loops of cyberspace a chicken exists. The never-ending spin. The Chicken does not hide. He shows himself, and challenges you.

No waddle by the by.

TRAIN!!!

IT'S A TRAIN!!! 

You people like trains, right? The conductor chills out hanging on the break because that's totally legit and safe.  Within the train is the endless purple of safety, while on the outside they flow forward safely in the world.

Sorry about the long break. I've been a bit busy.

Cyborg Zombie President

Here we have a totally radically awesome picture of the cyborg zombie (chicken) president of the USA, and an anti-zombie activist he bit making the whole thing rather awkward for the both of them. I actually really like how the president came out. He looks like a zombie, he looks like a cyborg. I wasn't quite sure how to capture president. I mean he feels a bit more like secret service, but I say he's the president so you know he is. As for the blood spatter. My MS Paint had some strange error causing it but it looked cool so I went with it. Though it did ruin the sign because I couldn't cover back over the "NO ZOM"

Yeah, I went for a two-fer on my challenges.(... complete!)

Fluff ball

As I said during the last baby chick picture I am not good at fluffballs. This is what you're getting at any rate. It's better than the one linked in the challenge at any rate.

He's a poofy poof. He's a poofy poof. Poofy poofy poof. He's a poofy guy! Yeah.

MISSION... COMPLETE!

Truly Alien

Okay, last nights rush didn't really happen, but I totally planned to do it.
This is chicken-like while being entirely alien. Check out that green clouded
purple sky. Also his various tentacles and Venus-Flytrap mouth


CHALLENGE COMPLETE!

Swiss Army Chicken

One of my first challenges completed. Normally I'd ramble off some commentary, but there's a lot of words on the picture so that's enough.

Anyways, CHALLENGE COMPLETE!

Also I had a computer virus eating my computer and missed the Thanksgiving update which is probably good cause I couldn't seem to draw a belt on a hat. I'm going full stop tonight so we'll see how much we get.

Oh, and I got many lots of comments. Anonymous were you a single guy or did I get a whole lot of interest all at once.
November 22, 2010

Detective

This is a Detective obviously. Look at the Fedora. I decided to go with a red shirt to match the red hat stripe, which in turn was red because it covered up the comb. I went with gray instead of black for the vest and hat because they would have blended between the outline too much.

Stay In the Chicken

This is the feminist chicken. She is a successful CEO of a major company but that smart-ass guy keeps telling her to Stay In The Kitchen, offending and angering her.

The title is of course a pun since Chicken and kitchen sound similar.

CHALLENGE COMPLETE!!

Chibi Chicken(AKA Rounder And Cuter)

Here I have completed the Chibi Challenge I got ages ago. You may notice that I in fact finished it before it happened. I'm just cool like that.

CHALLENGE COMPLETE!

Oceanventure

This chicken is on an endlessly exciting oceanventure. With only a magical bubble of some sort to protect him from all that high pressure and lack of oxygen. The chicken is slightly worried about the hoard of fish but mostly he's worried about the flimsy bubble bursting.

Invert Checkers

 

Well, sorry for the short break, but I have a new chicken today. He's inverted black and white chicken in a checker pattern. I'm kinda disappointed in my lack of exposition. I've got nothing though. Not even a blurb of artsy nonsense

Also, the banner has been slightly altered to make up for our new friend Michael.

Block By Block

Sometimes I like to work pixel by pixel, but well those are tiny and you don't really get to see the work, resizing them to be bigger just looks weird though. The big blocks here on the grid sheet are good. I like the effect of the grid lines.

Ghost! Ghost!! Ghost!!!

This is a chicken shaped like a cheesy ghost. I think that's all that needs to be said really.
November 08, 2010

Bright Shadow

The bright form in the background serves to highlight the appearance of the dull chicken in the foreground. The lack of the usual thick outlines allows the two chickens to blend together. The two together let you see the actual chicken somewhere between the extremes.

Dual Chicken Wallpaper

I feel much better now, and to prove it to myself I made a wallpaper. But I feel a bit sick now so maybe that was a bad call.

Perhaps I miss the Dual Chicken. He was my first project and over the length of his creation my style developed quite a bit. Perhaps I'll do something again with him with consistent art and maybe a story that people who aren't the one who made it up(read: me) can follow. Well, the second would kinda ruin the point but with more notes to make things more confusing perhaps. Maybe a flash animation or something. You know, later. Or maybe soon if I'm feeling it, but this got the itch to do something with him out of my system for now.

Dizzy(Still Pretty Sick)


My sickness continues. I didn't even touch a computer yesterday.
And I think I'm too dizzy to draw, but I tried.

I went to the doctor and got a bunch of pills and a shot of penicillin. My doctor didn't tell me what's wrong with me... but I feel pretty awful.

Ugh...

Ugh... I have a throbbing headache. My eyes are red, and I feel pale, though I can't say whether or not I am.

This chicken is an analogue of how I'm feeling if it's unclear. I hope it was fairly obvious.

?About?



I have decided to add an About Page to the sidebar Just finished up this pic. The page will be up in a moment.

This should alleviate some of my "But why a chicken blog?" comments and possibly turn them into "Oh dang. Best site ever" comments. I mean the second probably not, but the first yeah. Anyways it's basically a remake of the about post I did a while back. Even used the same pic.

Also 3 posts in a day... I think I'm back baby!

Scooby Equivalent

The chicken equivalent of Scooby-Doo. Look at Shaggy Chaggy and his pet dog chicken. He's a real coward and I drew up the Scooby eyes and used a roughly Scooby-Doo color.

Also this is part two of my 2010 Halloween updates.

EDIT: I forgot to say, "And Scooby Doo was a chicken to begin with." Also the left hand is backwards.

Rubber Mask

It's finally Halloween. While last years was awesome this year I have a very obvious product. The cheap rubber mask of chickens. I should probably have bought one of these. I would never have worn that sort of thing at any rate though so it really would have come to naught. Anyways cheap Rubber Masks are important. I mean we've all seen good old Scooby Doo!

Jibbering

A chicken spouting endless gibberish. He knows all and tells all, but nobody can understand a word of it. As such everyone thinks of him as a madman, and is just glad he isn't violent.

Fire Breath

A Chicken with burning passion
A Chicken with a flaming heart
A Chicken with an immolating gaze.
A Chicken with charred dreams.

Back Back

I guess that Banner took a lot out of me, but anyways I'm back with two chickens standing back to back. I call it Back Back. Very poorly worded title I'll admit.

Straight laced guy on the left.
Wild eyes wild man on the right.

Together they're an unstoppable team, based on every fictional duo ever.

Banner #3

Ah yes. Another new Banner. It's been a while. It's still purple since I'm a bit too lazy to actually go through and change the skin. It's just changing from dark purple to lilac. Which is, I suppose a bit of a girly color, but I don't care. I wanted to the site to be brighter looking. I'm not sure if I like it or not. Give me some opinions on it.

Also you may have noticed my claim that the site is "The Original MS Paint Blog!" As far as I know this is true and it certainly sounds good. If you can identify one older than me I'd love to see it. Until someone does though I maintain my claim o being the original MS Paint Blog.(It is still about passion but I can't be having a bunch of taglines)

Edit: Needed a couple rounds of minor editing

Colorful

I have heard that my fans wanted more colorfulness so I had no choice but to deliver obviously. This piece has many colors. In fact it has all 7 colors. Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Cyan, Blue, and Purple. Yeah, that's right. I counted Cyan and didn't split purple into two colors. That's because on the digital wheel Cyan is a color and orange isn't, but I can't very well pretend orange is a shade of red, can I?

STAND IN THE BEAUTIFUL!
STAND IN THE COLORFUL!
STAND IN THE WORLD!!
STAND TALL NERVOUS CHICKEN!

Gritty Abstractness

Gritty Abstractness brings forth a clear impression of a chicken, but is too far away from a clear form to truly be called as stylized presentation of such. As such it is best to think of it as being an abstract image. The heavily shaded thick black and white form leaves a strong contrast in the image and the sharp angles bring out a distinct feeling.

Blog Action Day 2010: Water

Once more this not serious blog is participating in Blog Action Day, because I enjoy the occasional pouring on of social commentary.

Even if they can't count these guys make a strong case about drinking water being good. So, I think we can all agree that drinking water is important. Really though the site leading this is kinda wrong a lot.

If one billion people out of out 6.8 Billion people on earth don't have clean water... that isn't one in eight. I don't know if that first number's accurate but it certainly isn't the same as their ratio.(That would be about one in seven)

According to them the United States was opposed to clean Water and sanitation being a human right, but according to the link they provided the motion passed 122 to 0. Maybe we were opposed but we weren't that opposed.

But that site being a mess isn't really the point. And do these people realize what would need to be done to actually provide clean water to everyone in the world? They just assume that because I have something to say in their program that I'm on their side. I am to an extent but that sort of thing is expensive and given the current economic situation of the world that sort of project isn't going to be easy to pull off.

When we're all prospering we can help the poor and downtrodden, but when we're slipping and might become the poor and downtrodden we need to buckle down.

And of course here is a polluted version of the Experimental Water Chicken. He was one of my first, so even though he's not looking so great I can always pull him back for a bit of screen time. The chicken hasn't changed much(though he is dirty and crying now) but his surroundings were horribly polluted.

BG Tree

Today's chicken is more or less just the standard fair. You know Basic Chicken Maker Style. If you don't like it then this site ain't for you. What's important today is that I put a tree in the background, symbolizing the unyielding strength to stand and grow that this chicken strives to achieve.

Real Chicken Maker

Which of these is the real Chicken Maker? The great mystery of this site is obviously my true identity, so I've decided to share.

On the left is a young fellow in jeans and sneakers.
On the right is a chicken in mysterious brown.

I for one think it's probably the one on the right who is the real Chicken Maker

I dunno. I mean everybody else draws little doodles of themselves so I wanted to try doing it too...

EDIT: I hear your complaints and have attempted to correct the error.

Old Paint is Better

Having seen many people doodle with MS Paint these days I said to myself, "Why are these people drawing so stupidly. They seem clever with their witty comments." Then I played on a Windows 7 computer. What the hell did they do to my beloved Paint. I mean I'd seen screen shots and things before and been kinda 'eh,' but I figured a bit of mussing with it and it'd be back to the old standard. But NO! I mean if I used the pencil instead of the brush I got rid of the anti-aliasing but that's not good enough! Whole thing just doesn't work for me.

And I hate those Ribbon Interfaces. I didn't even realize you could ruin Microsoft Office until I actually started using them regularly last year. And I just realized I whined about this before, but I feel like I should whine again anyways. Because this isn't just a chicken website. It's also an MS Paint website.

Here's a thing to get it back to the good one. I suggest all you Paint artists follow it and get back old MS Paint where there was none of that anti-aliasing and ribbons and what-not that doesn't belong in MS Paint.


Here's a chicken. Made in MS Paint. The Paint Bucket tool is dumping over his head to color him in, which wouldn't work out properly had I used the Windows 7 version of Paint.(There'd be all those little off-white fragments around the edge.)

Future Imperfect Once More

REMAKE!

A hard-line tough guy living in the endless wastelands of the future. Crossing a seared and desolate world, walking past those he'd stood with in the past. So many terrible deaths surrounded him and he had nothing left. He alone had survived his last battle and has been left with a terrible scar, both mental and physical.

The 3 Rs

Honestly... I don't care that much about the Environment. I just do things when they're convenient but I throw piles of stuff in the trash. And I'll refill soda bottles with water for a week or the such. All in all I can't say I'm good for it. But it's good to recycle when you can, even if you don't at every chance. You don't need to be that Green, but a bit helps.

Oh, and don't give me any "Protecting the Earth" nonsense. The Earth will be fine even if we 'ruin it.' We might not be too happy if humanity can't do things like get food or breath though.

Also I can't remember the 3rd R. Reuse, Recycle... Oh yeah Reduce.

Stop Dust

Skidding to a stop. 
Dust Wells. 
Edge of existence right before his eyes. 
DON'T FALL INTO THE PURPLE!!!
  
And now to speak of it from an artistic perspective. This is of a style that seems familiar to me, though I can't place the name. I had thought it was Matte, but that is not right. The bits of black stroked through it help to define outlines without being obtuse or out of place, aside from a few small places, like the tip of the comb. It gives a clear impression of what it is, though the 'dust' isn't formed in a regular manner and seems out of place with the rest of the piece. The endless void feels as if it should mean something, but its meaning is unclear.

Chicken Make

  
This chicken is working on his art. He took his paint brush and stared at the stone wall, then he decided that he should probably try to be artsy, so he put on a beret. And once the purple beret was on his head he made the distinct lines of the chicken form. Truly among his greatest masterpieces, since it was his first masterpiece. Eventually his art would be out-show his first, but it would always be his first masterpiece.

CHALLENGE COMPLETE!

Chicken X Destroyed a World

The dreaded Chicken X swept through a universe. Now with his world destroyed this chicken is slowly destroyed from the inside. His body dissolves and fades and breaks. Chicken X Destroyed a World and it's inhabitants.

This was inspired by a chicken I scribbled with a pencil then tried to erase with a useless eraser.

Handsome Gentleman

He arrives on the scene to steal the young maiden's heart. A handsome gentleman with a heart of gold. He slides in at the last moment and saves her from some pugs. He looks her in the eyes, and she says...

"You're not a coward, but I'm not gonna go out with a chicken."
