Re: Giiiiizzzaaaaards


Whew... Photoshop almost didn't let me submit this thing... My machine hates me!

This was an idea my boyfriend came up with. Kind of silly, I know, but we're silly people. And we're horror fans!

Sorry for the lack of a background guys. My weakest point as an artist is scenery. I promise to work on that for you in the future.

I am trying a couple of new things this time. I normally don't use halftones or distressing, but I needed some effect stuff this time around. I hope it looks ok to you.

Please enjoy the chicken fiascoe and the bird derby! I appreciate all of you taking the time to view my entry :D.

Photoshop CS2 (grrrr)

Great job Bass. Glad you dropped the stuffing, though it may have worked if the chicken was a turkey. Hope this does well.

Looks even better without the scenery... the empty lot look makes it more desperate... GMV

Also really glad you took out the stuffing - while it added interest to the design, it did look rather...unfortunate.
The distressing is a nice touch, too! Not normally a fan of unnecessary distressing in a design, but here it really gives it that gritty fight-for-your-life feel.
Nice work!

What are those random swirls on the bottom of the mock? Are they supposed to be on the shirt because they don't really add anything and I don't think they'll really show either.

Hah I just saw those, they look like vines and leaves, I think she just threw them in as an easter egg on the shirt fad out. Don't think she means for them to print.

Aiy.... I know what that is. I was rushing to make the comp after my 'shop crashed and I picked the wrong brush to make a mask of the bottom of the shirt. Sorry to everyone who is confused by that. I meant to get the brush above mr flowerypants brush. Thank you rushing on 24 hours of no sleep. =_=

Re: Giiiiizzzaaaaards


This looks great! I like it without the stuffing/gizzards or whatever it was. Though I still don't know how if I like the baster weapon. I think an electric carving knife might have been better. I just don't see that chicken making it with a baster.

Bass, one of the nicest things about this design is a lack of background. The scratches on the "ground" are perfect.

Plus it's just joyously gruesome that there's a bone in the hip of the fallen one that kinda looks like a femur Poor thing had a leg shoved UP into its body

I hadn't realized from the sketches he was using a baster. Great detail The expression on the chicken is also hilarious.

Agreed. Even though the baster makes it more cute and thematic, I actually think it would be more absurd and funny if the chicken was holding a traditional zombie-killing weapon, like a shotgun, or if you don't like that, at least a chainsaw.

This is pretty darn awesome, Bass! From concept through execution, it's really well done. That is one badass chicken fer sure.

He's got a baster full of brown gravy because gravy is instant death to zombie chickens.
You can't go for a head shot with zombie chickens. They have no heads. Thus, you have to get creative with your killing methods.

I have but one issue:

zombies, even zombie chickens, will not walk around once the head has been removed.

Re: Giiiiizzzaaaaards


Sorry to all who don't dig the joke. I meant it as more of a visual lol than a scene or story, perse. I wasn't going for an actual zombiepocalypse feel so much as just a funny, walking chicken bodies and gravy joke. The zombie aspect adds to the funny.

The chickens were meant to be 'walking dead', but not necessarily the traditional falling apart, dead, green zombies. Plus there are some dead looking, zombie chicken things out there already. This was just my own personal visual joke.

They are...the walking meat!!! BLARGBLARG! And gravy is like Dip to meat! (sorry, obscure Roger Rabbit joke there) Again, I hope everyone can enjoy it for it's own sort of flavor..har har...chicken flavored..

Thanks Walz, I appreciate your support!

I forgot how picky zombie fans are about zombie lore.. I didn't even think about it or else I might have scrapped this idea. My boyfriend is a -huge- zombie fan. We own almost every zombie related movie and board game on the planet.

Also...you have to destroy the brain to kill a zombie. Nobody says these poor guys' heads aren't sitting pretty in the freezer :D
