Illustration Friday - Chicken


Part of my New Year 'intentions' is to get back to my sketching and painting.  I love my craft, but I think I may have let myself get distracted by it last year! 

Anyhoo, I've decided to take part in Illustration Friday (at least monthly) as an inspiration to help me start drawing again.  This week's subject was 'chicken' and my first reaction was that I would never be able to draw a chicken.  But then I tried to imagine an illustration for a children's book and that brought to mind a gorgeous, colourful bird.  It also fits in I realize with the fact that I am somewhat of a chicken when it comes to starting new ventures, so I wanted to make my chicken as friendly looking as possible.

Do you think I've succeeded? 

Check out the Illustration Friday site for more awesome artworks.

Don't be a chicken Larissa! The colours are brilliant and this is one of the friendliest looking chickens I've seen :)

I think your chicken looks very friendly indeedy... and that is something coming from me because I would never describe myself as a fan of feathered creatures.
