So, as promised, I spent last night attempting to make a new design featuring a besocked rooster. It ends up that it was one of those ideas that seems like a winner but doesn't really pan out. Maybe I'll try again but I'm not sure the concept is worth the effort. At first I started with the simplest approach of a rooster standing calmly while wearing socks in a portrait style. I wasn't amused enough by it so I tried to invent a scenario where I thought a rooster would enjoy wearing socks. I thought the only way a proud rooster would wear a pair of silly socks was if it helped him impress a hen. So, somehow I developed the scene above where he is rubbing his socks on the rug to generate static and have a laugh with his hen friend. Yeah, it became a little too convoluted.
I wish I had made this a couple weeks ago when the theme for Illustration Friday was "Electricity".
