Super Chicken

on: April 25, 2016, 11:57:32 pm
So I've posted one of my pieces here before, but no one replied to that post. I've since moved on to this character-



He's a chicken wearing a cape (if you can even tell). I've been practicing in trying to get complementary colors, and I'm still not very happy with how I shaded this...

Please, I need some direction here. Any advice is welcome.

You seem to have outlined everything but the feet making them become lost in the background. If the cape seems invisible now I would say not to worry too much as if you ever get to animating, you can make the cape more visible by the way it moves and by the way it reacts to the chicken's movements. But other than that, it looks like a chicken to me!

I definitely see what you mean by the feet now, thanks for that. And I'm totally going to animate the cape later, along with the walk cycle. Hopefully it will come out all right... I've never animated clothing before  ;D

Thank you for taking the time to respond. I'm glad it at least looks like a chicken! haha

Cute chicken but he doesn't come across as very "super" to me.
Have u considered puffing his chest out?
Perhaps make him a little more bipel looking so u can add some human characteristics such as muscles?

That's an interesting thought! But I was going for more of just an average looking chicken who only thinks he's super. I do like the idea of a Clark Kent type chicken though... mild mannered chicken at work, super chicken when justice calls.

Could be a whole new game lol

Wow, this is amazing!  :y:

I thought I wanted more of a Mother kind of style, but after seeing this I might have to reconsider a more realistic approach. Excellent stuff.

Also, I never thought to bring the cape down to a ground level. But it makes complete sense. lot to think about here, thanks for that!

Quick update:



I've extended the outline around the legs and I'm currently in the process of animating the cape along with the walk cycle. I'll be sure to post that when it's done  :)
