Illustration Friday: Chicken Layers Up


Here we see Spring Chicken layering up to face the return of winter. I started these pages when the IF word was 'sweater', and it helped inspire this part of the story. I haven't quite finished coloring and didn't star the shading & highlights yet, but wanted to get these up this week. Critiques are welcome as I'm still making adjustments.

See the previous Penguin vs. Chicken page here.

Oh it is great, Angela! I like the story you tell and definitely want to see more of the two! Don't mind it is not finished, I think they do fine with a rather simple colouring! Make a comic, please!!!!

Thanks everyone! I appreciate the support for these characters. :)

Maria, I'm working on the beginnings of another comic idea. Not sure what I'm doing, but I'm enjoying the ride!

First I was like, "Awwwwwww." Then I was like, "Go go go go go!" Then I was like, "What the! Grrrrrrrrr!" I'm going to make me a TEAM CHICKEN shirt!

Soooooo cute, Angela! Penguin will rue the day he messed with Chicken!
