Ferdinand Chicken Redesign..
I made this doodle this morning.. after seeing One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest. I just love Christopher Lloyd's character in that film! I think subconsciously I've based my Ferdinand chicken character on him. So what I did with this doodle was to remodel my character's proportions a bit to better suit his personality, the way it was originally intended. Now he's more of a tall moron with a bow-tie, the way I've always imagined him in my mind. He's basically an insensitive moron professing to be a smart chicken. It's obvious to him that most other beings are stupid. He seeks intellectual conversation, but when he finds it he doesn't understand a word and just considers the person to be a moron.
