The exotic chicken. by ThE-UnKO-LeMa The exotic chicken. by ThE-UnKO-LeMa
"The Bird" has now been coloured in photoshop (yay) here's the original [link]

I'm entering this into a school's art comp. to win $100... hopefully.

ORIGINAL STATEMENT;

Four birds... can u see them all? Full view please.

This drawing originated from a art class excercise in cubism a year ago; in it we had to draw the bird (a wierd pottery creature made by our art teacher) from three different angles in 1 1/2 minutes, with each perspective overlapping the last.

medium- 2B pencil and a3 paper.

After the time was up i was surprised- it looked a little shoddy and a little messy- but the resulting shapes were very cool.
Recently I spent another 10 minutes clearing up odd marks, blurs and connecting loose lines and then finally colouring and shading certain regions...

then to cap it all of i took it into photoshop to colour... mmm coffee colours.

I hear Jazz when i look at this, and i see an old bird watcher man with golf trousers and grey hair trying to get a photo with an old camera... what do you see/hear?

mmm yeah, glowing edges is overdone :( ... but yeah I think it still looks good

What I did is invert the original image, extract the black background as a new layer and then applied a rainbow gradient on a new layer, then I brought the extracted black background to the foreground.

yeah i like the retro look, i was going to do like full colouring off all the squares to make it more cubist but I got lazy...

nice to see you making sensible comments for once.

RAINBOW! ZOMG

Man I wish my school had an art competition!


Snoogans (from urban dictionary)

Word used to express pleasure or agreement. Synonym of words/phrases (when used in correct context) as "sweet"; "cool"; "nice"; "awesome"; and some times "hell yes".

Example for "sweet", "cool", etc..
Girlfriend - "I'm really horny"
Boyfriend - "Snoogans"

Example for "hell yes"...
Girlfriend - "Want to have sex?"
Boyfriiend - "Snoogans"

Those examples were terrible but you get the drift
