Sonic the Chicken

All of the core Sonic aspects are here.

  • Being Blue
  • Runs Fast
  • Hedgehog Chicken
  • Cocky Grin
  • Fights Ancient Gods
  • Collects Rings
  • Only Flies Sometimes
  • Loops-de-loops
  • Spindash?

The latest Sonic game was fun, but pretty janky. This is in line with most Sonic games, but it had something that really rekindled my childhood excitement of playing them.

This is what chicken maker could have been, if only I had the drive to know what, exactly, this is.

Thematically it's somewhere between a comic page and 90s video game instruction booklet.

Traditional Christmas End

Following the most traditional ways we end our winter holiday with the most traditional ending. The Christmas Fowl flies across the red sky of dusk on it's golden star, leaving behind the green light of spring.

Snow Chicken

 The dreadful snow chicken raises his army or deadly snow men.

Christmas Horror has always been one of the strangest genres to me. The dissonance between Christmas cheer and and gory violence is just something that's hard to look away from.

Santa Hat 2

Santa's Hat, a wonder to be sure. Who knew it would fit on a tiny little chicken.

Merry Christmas everyone.

Winter Trees

 Snow. Trees covered in snow. Dark skies. And a bird with a shining nose flying across the sky.

Normally birds flying isn't particularly notable, but this was a chicken.

You may have doubts when it comes to things.

That's just your lack of arrogance speaking. You shouldn't doubt things except, of course, the things you're wrong about.

Just arrogantly say it. If you're wrong someone on the internet will tell you so, and with your newfound arrogance you can just call them dumb.


Anyways this website is the best internet. 

If only we had regularly scheduled updates instead of our reliable (?) posting schedule.

Still Standing

The last week has been a bit hectic on my end and we're coming into the holidays, but I'm still standing and we a brand new chicken here for you to look at. It's a pretty one, yeah? Tried something different in the eye, but I think I still need to work on that.
December 10, 2022


Just a friendly handyman carrying his ladder over to the old bird's coop. Definitely not a criminal.

December 06, 2022


The source of the strange drawing on the ground was unknown, but one thing was obvious. It was graffiti of a chicken, or a graficken as they're sometimes known.

December 02, 2022


Of course the chicken's neck isn't crooked. It is the world itself that has become twisted.

Gray Skies – November 2022 Wallpaper

The barren tree branches crossed over the gray winter sky. The wandering fowl passed through the forest, unaware of the thieving birds hiding in the trees. Would they be bold enough to try something or were they just chicken?

This is a bit duller than most of the wallpapers have been. That makes it more appropriate for your work desktop background. Use it, but I probably won't.

Thank you as always to my Patreon supporters. You can support me if you want to support me. That way you could know this started out in grayscale.

The Crosser, one who crosses. But why should one ever cross? Is it really simply to get to the other side?

November 24, 2022

Turkey Vs.

I mean for the most part the IRL Turkey is just much bigger than the chicken, but that's not important for this. Glaring in a sudden confrontation. Would it be a fight or would they just walk by?

If you're American I hope you enjoyed the holiday and ate a lot of turkey.

Pokemon Again

Pokemon, a core game in the mons genre, right up there with Monster Rancher, Dragon Quest Monsters, Shin Megami Tensei, and Digimon, has a new game, the 9th in their mainline series. There are now over 1000 creatures in the games. Somehow this franchise only has one chicken pokemon, well 3 but they're all in one evolution chain, even after all these years.

I hear the new one is broken, but I'll pick it up at some point regardless. I haven't gotten around to it yet.

November 18, 2022


In the drab darkness even if you're not that bright you can still shine.

Just a bit of pixel art to break in the fresh computer.

Here's the original size version.

Bubbles – October 2022 Wallpaper

If you're on the Patreon you know that I intended this wallpaper to be domineering and hotblooded, but I ended up on this relaxing wallpaper instead. It took me longer than it should have to stop fighting it and go in this direction. Simple and vibrant, with a satisfying energy.

November 11, 2022

Blue Screen

My computer died. I'm upset and annoyed, but I won't have lost anything important. Even all the Chicken Maker is backed up online. Should be back in full Chicken Drawing in a few days. Does my computer being broken count as site news?

Also when I think of a generic computer it still looks like this. Am I perhaps not an energetic youth? I promise mine is sleek and full of RGB lights.

Warrior's Storm

A lone warrior travels through the storm toward a dreaded final conflict. Or perhaps a hopeful victory. 

November 04, 2022


This piece has all your favorite brown colors, from brown to brown. Admittedly we should probably add some brown, but we'll circle back on that later.

Chicken Costume

Chicken dressed as a chicken. It was a suggestion from one of my coworkers. I assumed I'd done it, but I only had a turkey dressed as a chicken when I looked.

Candlelit Coven


The witches gathered around the coven's leader. She was small, but absurd rumors that she was "a chicken," "some giant bird" and "a witch" were obviously complete nonsense. Just because the coven's leader was a bit on the short side was no reason to make up that sort of thing.

I forgot I was doing these all on the same canvas size, so here's a the original version I made, before I redrew parts of it to the different dimensions.

Bewitched Bog

In the bewitched bog the bewitched frogs were confused. As they saw through the bewitched fog they were entranced by this rather bewitching blog... 

I mean chicken. A rather bewitching chicken. That doesn't rhyme with bog at all though.

October 23, 2022


I made this one today. That's why I'm calling it "Today" 

October 20, 2022

Fiendish Familiar

The Fiendish Familiar appeared to be a simple chicken, but it's true form was revealed in the reflection. From the corner of the witch's eye she saw the eldritch abominations, writhing in the empty air.

October 14, 2022

Spellbook Apprentice

Accidentally opening the spellbook after wandering into the witch's house. The book took a liking and filled the bird with forbidden knowledge. The meager fowl was entranced by the vast swell of information as the pages span around it like a whirlwind. 

But most importantly the chicken gained the tiny hat the witch had on hand for her cat.

Midnight Delivery

The second theme for Drawtober is "Midnight Delivery" so we're going with a witch chicken flying in the  night time sky. Bwak bwak bwaak!

Bird Sketch

This is a bird. The blue and green background symbolizes. Truly one of the pictures on this website.

I kind of like the sketchy outlines, but making them consistent and rough is a careful balance.

October 05, 2022

Garden of Magic

The theme is a garden of magick, but I might have ended up more alien world with my choice of less saturated cool colors. Flowers, mushrooms and blue chickens is definitely magic though.

This year we're participating in Drawtober, because it isn't daily like most of these October art events.

AI Generated Post

The following was a drawing and ramble generated using the Craiyon Image AI and NovelAI. This rant is full of inspiration and questions. 

The first and most important point to note about chickens is that they are not people. They do, however, have faces (with beaks). Their heads are large and their eyes are usually small but sometimes quite large. Their legs are short and stubby with no toes or claws. Their feet are in fact the same shape as human hands. A man who does not eat meat cannot be called a vegetarian. He must, rather, be called a "chicken-eater".

Is this how a chicken would wear a wig and red ball nose? I think yes, and I'm obviously the highest authority on this matter.

He doesn't have jokes. He just runs around like a chicken.

Painting – September 2022 Wallpaper

Here is this month's deeply meditative desktop wallpaper. Like a zen garden's endless raking of sand it was made through an endless series of incomplete sweeping strokes.

We used only the most reliable MS Paint spray can, the largest size of which is exactly 25 pixels wide. If I want to do something painterly I should just use actual paint. Or any art program that isn't my old friend MS Paint. Or at least not do it for something this large. Still, the tedium makes the completed product more satisfying.

Endless Swirls

Twists and swirls in an endless flow. As is almost always the case on this website they reveal the hidden form of a chicken. Almost like it's on purpose.

September 21, 2022


Today we're doing a wizard. Magic is usually green or purple, but he has a red hat and robe to match his wattle. If he had red magic it would be scary because that's usually evil.

I can't say for sure, but I'm pretty sure the swooshes behind this one are almost definitely magic.

White Hat

Seems like a shame to let the bad guy win, so here's the sheriff with a white hat, come to save the day.

September 18, 2022

Black Hat

 An unknown bird wandered into town with a black hat. Maybe it was from hearing too many tall tales, but you knew right away that he was the bad guy. That was just how westerns always went. Unlike the stories though when he pulled a gun on the saloon there wasn't anybody with a white hat around to stop him.

Across Space and Space

As the event horizon stabilizes and the wormhole ripples we find ourselves on the edge of infinity, where the world sees its beginning and its end we travel across Space and Space, but never time, constantly encroaching on the dangers of a quantum entanglement.

That's the concept we're going with. I'll use a funny hat next time so I don't have to be so abstract.

September 08, 2022

Ink Splatter

This is an ink splatter. If you're seeing anything other than random splotches that's just your deep psychological issues coming to the surface.

I, for example, see a chicken. It's because I've been having this website for too long.

September 05, 2022


This bird is burning with passion, and literal flames. Fire is the most reliable and consistent theme on this site. Right up there with chickens.

I've been sick for the last few days, but I guess I feel better now.

Sunny Day – August 2022 Wallpaper

For this month's wallpaper we have blue skies and bright colors. All of the clouds aren't that sunny, but the sky is blue and I'm feeling positive. Tomorrow will be a brand new sunny day. 

You may have noticed this is vertical. That's because this is my new phone wallpaper, but you can use it too if you want. I'll do a dark one next time I go for vertical, but that will probably be a while.

Thank you as always to my Patreon supporters. You can support me if you feel like it.

August 28, 2022


It's my birthday. Happy birthday to me.

Monk (sticker)

And here is our finally entry, the Martial Artist. I didn't want to use Monk, not out of a need to not match D&D, but because I like wuxia stuff and the monk is too specific for my taste. Not that many single word options though. Final Fantasy used Blackbelt and I saw a couple used something as vague as Expert. My reliable standby Dragon Quest used Martial Artist...

I went ahead and used the gold and red Shaolin colors on the chicken's vague gi though so that's vaguely acknowledging it I suppose.

With this, for now, this project is done. At least until I'm actually selling stickers.

August 23, 2022


Left, the direction of turning around in a video game, but you might think "Shouldn't you always charge blindly forward?" Sometimes you need to go back the way you came from though so you can use your new skill and unlock the path you passed by earlier.

That skill, of course, is drawing chickens in MS Paint. You should give it a try some time. 

August 20, 2022

Jester (Sticker)

For this one I put the chicken in the classic motley pattern, though in just Orange and Green in keeping with the limited color style of the 'fantasy sticker' series. I suppose Jester more or less matches to "Bard" in Dungeons & Dragons, but it's just a standard class in Dragon Quest.

I wanted to wrap up some of my outstanding projects, so let's go with this one. This still isn't the last one though, despite my claim from January when I posted the last one. I have one more that I'll post soon, but this project has mostly been marked by unfortunately long gaps.

August 17, 2022

Do Purple

Let's do Purple for this one. 

So, Red, Blue, Yellow and Purple(violet?) are done. No good reason not to finish out this "set" at this point I guess

August 14, 2022


To be clear this is a chicken, not a junglefowl. He's just going full Rambo as he moves through the nondescript green vines that probably aren't snakes.

August 09, 2022

Spray of Lightning

Today's piece is either self-explanatory or cannot be explained. Between the flowing sprays of the ocean and the forceful strikes of lightning we have the Spray of Lightning

 And with this we will not launch into a reliable Blue Period, and instead consider this part of the "series" started last month with Red Out

August 03, 2022


Here's a basic chicken to get the month rolling...
