Why did the chicken cross the road
Contest Directions: "Why did the chicken cross the road?" is one of the oldest joke riddles in English language, and it's sill popular these days. Every year the riddle continues to get modern answers, some are quite entertaining. This one is my favorite:
To boldly go where no chicken has gone before.

        • This HAS to be viewed in large....A+ clever.

        • Full view is fabulous. Love how the hand is squeezing the egg out of chicken
        • I don't blame the road for being annoyed for being pooped on. I just hope the chicken is able to get away......

        • Congrats Hitman!!! You had me stumped on this one. But I'm glad to see that it's you. Amazing chop. How'd you ever come up with this. Would it be asking too much to see the sources? I'm really curious to see what you started with.

        • lol very nice,,and i love his helmet!!!
        • Fantastic work! In my opinion, the only weak part of the image is the lettering at the top. It's not bad, but I think the image would have more "Wow factor" if it was metallic or somethin'.
        • That is one badazz man-meaty goodness !!! Bet he pecks like a Jackhammer hahahahahaahah Nicely done!
        • Congrats again Rain! Great wow factor! I really like the cyborg chicken. Kinda reminds me of your sumo wrestler entry. The transformer legs is a great idea.

  • Dominatrix Chicken

    Dominatrix Chicken
        • Why? To star in this second to none, imaginative, expertly accomplished chop of course!!!
        • This chicken's living on the wild side, lol! Great chop, nice details. They almost look like Dorothy's shoes from the Wizard of Oz.
        • they were round toed shoes just a kids shoes i think .
        • I'm looking forward to knowing WHO did this one....... It's another one of those "I think I know" but oftentimes I am wrong...

          Luv the humor in this and PS skills shown.
        • Hahhaahah fun chop indeed. I should go out on a limb and make a preeasumption but I wont. LOL
        • This was very original, clever and well-executed.... and a fav for me.

          Congrats on #4 tonight.
        • Congrats on the woody Pree! I recognized your style right away, I knew it was yours. It's kinda dark and innocent at the same time. It's not reflecting part of your character, is it? hehe, Just kiddin'. But in some ways, if we look closely, a persons art can reflect personality in way. Great chop!!
        • funkwood ty im trying soo hard to get that liquid tool mastered.. by the way was it me or was it hard to dress a chicken..laughing my arse off..
        • I'm finding it hard to master that liquid tool too pree. We'll master it together, lol! I think you had fun dressing that chicken! lolll!
        • Preeee...I quessed right!!
          Smudge tool is easier for me to control than that liquid beast. But I'll smudge some in Photoexperession, export over to liquify in PS then come back to fhotoexpression for clean up and enhancing. That'ts the way I stay sane LOL
        • Congrats Premie Nice job! Tip on the liquify tool is to use the sharpen tool to clear up the blurred areas that it causes. Lower the sharpening strength, as full strength generally causes too much pixelation.

        • I agree with funkster.
          Man, so many freaky and yet cute details here. Look at these shoes, LOL! That chicken is a freak with tender heart!

  • Chicken Run Movie with KFC Employee

    Chicken Run Movie with KFC Employee
        • Nice chop! The title kinda gives you away a little, lol! You might want to shorten it next time. Great use of source pics!
        • Nice work Krato. I wasn't making fun of you in my previous comment. But the title doesn't read right. Maybe a short title like "Funky Chicken" might have worked better. Cheers!
        • Language barrier aside, this is one fun chop Krato!
        • Language Barrier aside, this is a really fun chop!!
        • Funk has solid suggestion.
          Excellent merge of all the sources - feels like original poster.
          Good job, kratos!
        • thanx for all my friend who saw my Design
  • Chicken Crossing Road Sign

    Chicken Crossing Road Sign
        • Please forgive my ignorance, but what is a search way? I think it means "direction of search" If that is so, the chicken is going in the wrong direction LOL
          You found some striking elements to integrate. Though the vanishing point of the road and tunnel doesn't agree with the horizontal plane it makes for one really trippy optical marriage. Breaking some rules fun now and then
          You made a strangely captivating piece
        • I love the perspective composition here. Feels like a dark fantasy - almost a modern fairy tale. Good job.
        • Thanks Man!This was my first attempt in creating a fantasy image.I hope I will get better and better....
        • Thanks Friend, basically you're right! I concentrated mainly on the creation of a castle in the background, and no to the remaining bit of me somehow escaped....
          It's a little distance...

        • Gagglebangers get what they deserve! LOL
          Fun chop!!!
        • You picked the perfect chicken for this.
        • LOL, he certainly did not make it. Evil Jerry got him
