Chinese New Year: Rooster


I feel like caca-doodle-doo-doo! Posted by Hello

The colors on these birds did not come out as rich as they appear in my book. I'm going to have to figure out how to saturate color in Photoshop. :) Anyway, I have a really cool background planned, one that emphasizes the fact that one bird is meant to represent night, the other bird to represent day. Overall meaning: the passing of time, beginning and end, new year/old. But I'm too darn sick to play with my colors right now. I'll add the background later.
Oh, I know I'm posting early- more chances for comments, who can resist? The thing that really gets me, those of you who publish on Monday! What is up with that?! Oh well, early bird...blah...blah...blah

  1. I do like the colors in both your "attempts", whether they are as rich as intended or not. And beyond the whole night/day aspect, there is also a yin/yang, balance feel!
    Feel better and good luck heading off those germies! We've got some nasty ones in our school as well.
