    What a coincedence! I just drew a rooster that I'm cutting out and transfering to plywood. I then cut it out and paint it either as a black silhouette, or with a few colors. Then I plan to attach it to my chicken run as an ornament.

    That's really nice! I love the way you did the feathers!

    I like drawing chickens with an italic nib. It seems easier for some reason.
    Here's one.

    I did a whole watercolor series for my final. Some were abstract, while others were more realistic

    Here's an oil painting I did several years ago. I have been thinking about picking my brushes back up, lol.

    Oh You guys are really good! I'm just starting. I tried to draw Pretty Boy today(The Tan one in my Avatar) But it's really really hard. The Silkie was somewhat easy.

    Try and get a picture of the chicken and then practice from that. Once you get the basic chicken shapes down, the rest will follow.
