chicken study wip

nicethymeJanuary 10, 2010

well since i have to wait for my substrate to cure I decided to just try a chicken and work or the shading aspects before i start the big project. Besides, I had wanted to do a black and white chicken with printed plates but I didn't have enough to work with and wasn't sure if that would even jive with the whole scheme.

so here is my black and white chicken, and if anyone has a name suggestion I'm in need! thanks

Awesome! Did I miss something? What is the chicken shape made from? As for a name, how about "Baked Chicken" since some of the pieces came from your oven? HAHA! ~Ann

Well I think your chicken clucks. LOL. I love it. The black from the oven door is just enough to make the chicken real looking.

thanks everyone, I'm quite pleased with her. Its just a piece of hardiebacker 10 X 8, I drew on a chicken and the cut out and glued on the word chicken in different sizes, bold and normal. To accentuate the shading and andamento.

So, am I to understand that that is bits of paper with the word "chicken" on them and then covered with tempered glass? Wow, that's a great idea! Beautiful work (and lots of it)
