An Embarrassing Situation by Alene An Embarrassing Situation by Alene
Clearly I'm a little strange. ;)

This is for the 'Bring Your Vision To Life' contest, as I thought that if I could think of an image for it which would also fit my portfolio, I should at least enter.

A traditional way of marrying off slightly-less-than-ideal princesses is to get a dragon, and offer the princess' hand to any knight who can slay it. But once you've run out of dragons, and when your temperate climate means you have no large lizards or really terrifying snakes.... the most lizardy thing around is a chicken.
Slaying a chicken is not, as a friend pointed out, something you would want to share with your mates over a pint at the tavern. It's hardly manly, is it?

This poor knight has discovered that the battle between good and evil has become a lot easier - but also a lot more embarrassing.

Media: Adobe Photoshop CS, Textures are from cgtextures.com, and my own collection, custom brushes are mine.
Time Taken: Around 15 hours, I think.
Size: 26cm x 21cm

Enjoy! =D

You're welcome. He was too cute not to favorite (not that I'm saying the girl isn't cute too). :)

Hehe, excellent. I love the poor princess's sulky look, and is it just me, or does that cockerel look rather smug?

Thankyou! =)
I was given a wonderful book of chicken photographs for my birthday, and had been wanting to draw a disgruntled chicken for ages - and I finally found an excuse. =P True, it looks a bit more smug than disgruntled, but a smug rooster is just as good, I think.
Thanks for the :+fav: =D I'm so glad you like it!
