January 2020 Wallpaper - Whispers

Whispers of madness fill the chilled air. The cloaked bird was turned and twisted, falling from grace to consort with the dark creatures who called this land home. Those who entered would not find a fellow from the mundane world, but simply another denizen of this madness filled land.

This month's piece is a callback to the themes of Lovecraft's horror, or at least the pop culture version of it. The cool colors of the environment encroach and cover the last of the chicken's warm browns, and oranges.

As always these wallpapers are brought to you by my supporters on Patreon, where you can download the full size version.

Big Sword

Fresh from the land of JRPGs this bird has a headband... and a BIG SWORD! Isn't that simply thrilling?

But coming to this one needs to ask the real questions. How much does that thing weigh? Isn't this blade shape impractical? How does the bird hold it when it doesn't have hands? What did the bird waste most of its MP doing?

Stealth 3D

Stealth Ace, but this time there's some true depth (to the box he's in)

Where in his quest does this piece take place? The usual context is of course ever present. Stealth Ace was brought in off the porch and left against the wall of an executive's home office. This would be  a glorious opportunity to complete some much needed corporate espionage.

In addition this is the video for the month, where I lightly ramble about this, the mascot(?) of this site.

In the middle of making this one I clicked the screen and my reliable legacy software, the Windows XP version of MS Paint, that I do almost everything on this site with... froze, crashed and closed out. I was ready to call this one a wash, but as luck would have it I actually saved it right before that happened. How's that for luck?

Starry Sky

Looking up at the starry sky... I don't have any follow up for that. This chicken is also outlined as a star? Those are stars shining and not snow? I just wanted it to look stylized. I didn't actually think it through enough to even have a rambling rant. Maybe I should step up my game, but I didn't post anything at all in the last while so this will have to do.

First Step

The first step on a new path is often the most dramatic and impactful. When straying from your comfortable path into something unfamiliar you can find even the simple things become difficult, but as you continue it will be less exciting and eventually become the same as the path you were walking before.

That being said I don't actually have any new and exciting first steps I'm taking so I'll continue with what I've been doing.

Power Trio

A trio of chickens boldly strides forward. Others could only look on in awe, unable to challenge them. Together they could even take on the dreadful might of a fox.

Why did the chicken cross the road? It is a question as old as time. But some mysteries can never be solved. All we know for sure is that this one successfully crossed the road.

Rain is a short hand for tears, but the parts that are really conveying sadness here is the shape of the face. The dull colors and rain are just there to enhance it.
