Illustration Friday "Chicken"


Here is my first submission for Illustration Friday. The topic was "Chicken." I'm naming her Richter because as I worked on her feathers I realized they were sort of Richter scale-like.

Love her! She looks just like my Plymouth Barred Rock, Charlotte, and I've been intimidated by drawing her black/white feathers. I've bookmarked your blog - looks intriguing...
