Illustration Friday: Launch (Rooster Sketch)

[17 Jun 2011 | By | 8 Comment(s) | 3,557 views ]

And I’m back from my art hiatus with an Illustration Friday!!

Really, I have been so busy with web design stuff, that I haven’t taken the time to draw, and that’s just sad.  So I’ve had this robotic rooster in my head (he’s eventually going to be a big piece) and here’s my first attempt at a sketch of him.  Doesn’t it look like he’s just launched a football into the air?


robot-rooster = initial sketch

I really like this sketch so much I don’t want to mess it up by adding more…  but alas I need to keep working on it!  Does that ever happen to anyone else?

    Love him! I think he kind of looks like he’s marching, tho – doing a bit of a goose-step. Can’t wait to see the finished product.

    Hehe, maybe it’s a Rooster Step!

  • Kelly B. [] :

    I LOVE this rooster! I bet he launched that football over some mountains!

    OF COURSE that happens to (most/all) of us!!! It’s one of the reason I like “drawing” on the computer so much, because you can usually have a good place to go back to when (not even IF) you mess up.
    I like your rooster. It’s probably a good thinb that Virgil didn’t dream up a Trojan Cock.

    heh, true… and I do like that about the computer. That’s the problem I always have with watercolors… no UNDO button!

    heh… heh… robots are cool! I like the layering of the feathers and the antenna!

    Excellent Robot Rooster! He looks like he may be launching his plans for some of the hens. And I can just see him retracting those telescoping legs to settle down.

    I think part of an artist’s skill is in knowing when to stop. I know I’ve been guilty of totally over running that point!

  • Dot [] (author) :

    Abby: Yeah, it’s a fine line between stopping too quickly and not finishing!

    JPIC: Yeah, robot roosters know they are cool.
