A Death Chicken Cover by bezzalair A Death Chicken Cover by bezzalair
It didnít work out with my publisher, so Death Chicken wonít be published at the moment. This was going to be the cover for it, but not anymore.
I donít know if I want to get into details, but Iíll just say that the reason it wasnít published was because my publisher decided not to be a publisher anymore. The end.

But no worries. :) This comic will get published someday. I was never in a hurry to publish it in the first place. Iíd actually prefer to publish it as one huge bookÖ Letís see if that happens. I need to get my butt in gear. ^^;

I can't say if I'll use this cover for the story anymore... maybe... Perhaps I can think of something better...?

If it makes you feel better, I would have gotten it if I had the chance!

Looks epic o.o I got really enthralled with a chicken-esque webcomic from another part of DA that was really good, and all I can say is that the chicken-themed webcomic domination could be on the horizon : ]

try a different publisher one of my professors tryied to get one of her books published and went to many publishers until it finally did get made into a book and did you know that Maurice Sendark the creator of Where the wild things Are went to 60 publishers until one of them published that book. i would so buy your book/comic when published and prefer to read it on hand than online (good to have the book/comic so it could get signed :D ) and love the book cover :heart: putting the main chars on one page and the choice of poses for each one along with the char lay out; death worm taking a good chunk of the cover and the chikens the other half with picking the moon instead of the sun :clap: and in the chiken world for building structor and finally the font :love: making the "i" in chicken an egg and cartoon skull

DON'T GIVE UP. KEEP TRYING TO GET MY MONEY ;)

A very nicely arranged cover! If you can think of something even better than this, I would very much love to see it! X'DDD
Really really like the creepy worm fellow in the bottom right, and the dynamic pose of the titular character is great! :)

Those folks that published Ursula Vernon's "Digger" comic might be a possibility, if you're still considering publication some day. Sofawolf Press, I think they are. They seem very competent.

Also, I love this cover. It's dynamic in movement, and it really caught my attention when I was running through my stalking-gallery. :D

I'm sorry to hear that your publishing deal didn't work out. Although I can kind of understand and I guess maybe your publisher found out that being a publisher was more than he/she bargained for. Still, I will look for to the day Death Chicken gets another publishing contract and goes through with the release.

As for the cover, I can say it's very splendid. Although perhaps it's just my personal preference, I would think that it might be better to go with a more minimalistic approach to the cover, just so that you're not giving spoilers away for anyone but the main character. I was told the same thing with my movie cover, when did a sketch of something similarly complicated as this one. However, I do understand that having a lot of detail in your work is your forte, so it's really up to you.

I also agree with someone's comment that perhaps there should be a scythe around, probably in the human form's hands or maybe even when the blade is stuck through her chest to give a better allusion to its essential role in your comics. Good luck and I hope everything works out eventually!

Yeah, I might try to go a bit simpler... but no promises. :D I can't help myself sometimes.

And I probably will try the scythe thing in the next drawing attempt.

Don't get me wrong! I like this one a lot.

It certainly is a neat cover, it's just that if anything, character-wise, it might be giving out a little bit too much rather than the idea of needing to be a little bit more simplistic. Whether it becomes the cover or not, I would still hope to see this somewhere in your book!

Whenever you DO put this book out I'll buy it in a heartbeat! Have you ever conisdered independently publishing it? If you have a high enough demand (which I blieve you have) you can easily make a profit.
