bup BUP by Nambroth bup BUP by Nambroth
I painted this as a gift for my husband's birthday.

We fish at this pond, and one day while fishing he told me he imagined his favorite pet chicken, Coho the Salmon Faverolles, gigantic and stepping over the hills looking for him. She says "bup bup... bup BUP?" a lot. The image made us laugh and became a reoccurring joke. So, I painted the scene for him, complete with her spacey vacant expression.

She is a very cuddly chicken and likes to bury her head in our armpits. I suspect she is just looking for a gigantic armpit to snuggle into. If you want to read more about Coho, you can visit this little page: [link]

The white pole is an osprey nest platform (this is an actual location we go to).

Corel painter, acrylic brush (which I am falling more in love with every day).

God, I love the way you painted the feathers especially. Lovely working in the blues into her cream feathers as well.

 How on Earth can the spectacle of a Godzilla-sized chicken tickle my funny bone so consistently?

 I can only attribute that to your excellent artwork (and my own perverse sense of humour!).;) (Wink)

Coho reminds me of my own hen Clover in her way, but also of Hazel...  None the less, I am impressed yet again, and the shading is quite well-done.

There is something about giant chickens that makes me feel so excited!
They are by far the most useful bird I know of and making them huge makes them even MORE useful!
My dream... is to ride... a giant chicken, into the sunset! It would be amazing!

I love chickens. One of mine who passed away last year was a big sook and used to try to climb on your lap and stick her head in your arm pit and nuzzle in. :XD:
My other one who is still with me, loves to jump on your lap for cuddles, but she isn't as fond of sticking her head under your arm. She'll actually put it on your shoulder if you pet her though.

It's a brilliant drawing, and it made me so happy to read about your chickens and all their different personalities. I'm so glad to hear that other breeds of chickens have such unique personalities and behaviours like mine did, because I never knew what breed mine were. And everywhere you turn people always seem to think chickens are dumb with no personality :no:

Oh goodness, how wonderful! Yes, Coho loves to smoosh her head into one's armpit, or if we are wearing jackets, she will try to get inside. On the roost, she will snuggle up under the belly and wing of her best friend (Chickadee).

One of the others loves to be pet, but like your other chicken, she does not care to cuddle in. She prefers to sit quietly and be pet, and will look into my face dreamily instead!

Awesome though Nam. Ive always been curious as to how you get such fantastic featheryness on your pictures... Do you have any fur/feather painting tutorials?
