Programmed in Macromedia Shockwave it was a promotional gag for the website of the very first BIG BROTHER series in Holland for John de Mol Produkties.
These chickens were designed for one of the first on-line Shockwave (now known as Flash) games ever created. It was a shooter game where the chickens moved around and when you shot them they ‘exploded’ and fell down.
The shockwave animation technology was so new that back then I drew these analog on paper and colored them with watercolor and scanned them in.
Of course today I would choose to create them digitally directly in the computer, most likely as vector art. But back then that technology did not exist either.
Unless you are talking about MS Paint. Haha.
Still I think they are pretty funny even today. I hope you enjoy them.
