Chickens of Flight WIP

on: October 18, 2008, 01:35:26 am
After many numerous random scribbles in a very boring Chem class, one scribble kinda looked like a chicken, and i gave it helicopter wings, went home, redrew it, and pixeled it.
This is my first attempt at pixel-work, i've done some not-so-great sprites, but i really wanted to get into Pixelation stuffz.

Ref:

Real chickens dont have those legs, but thats okay, because they're cool. I'll prob keep them, unless they turn out to be stupider than i think. I used a 16 color palette i found somewhere around wayofthepixel, just to play with some colors, dont quite remember where i got it tho ( i might have added a color or two, didnt really keep track) . I really dont know how to go about the feathers, so some help would be nice =D. i did a bunch of dithering stuff that i'm not very good at, basically just for practice, so please, fell free to point all the many flaws out O=
So, C & C, plz



Oh, and lastly, i've heard that it looks more like a parrot, which doesnt work as much for the comical element, so yes, it is in fact a chicken with a pimped out beak

It seems you aren't taking volumes into proportion while making this. Shading shouldn't just highlight a small edge of the piece- it needs to be less flat.

You also have some jagged line-art there. Perfect the line-art and then work on the piece- that's what I've learned.

I might be able to throw out an edit here sometime. Keep working on this though, don't give up!
