Official Inktober prompt #5: Sad

The relocation continues. Even though they get to see the landscapes rolling by, a certain little Chickenfox is getting pretty homesick…

Chickenfox Derby update: First Print!

I ordered a test print of the Chickenfox Derby game, just in time to take it to Geek Girl Con! It arrived the other day and I am really pleased to share it with you now:

Up until now, the Chickenfox game has been a bunch of hand-drawn cards tucked into card sleeves with old bicycle playing cards as support behind them.

Now, the game is one step closer to being real!

I wanted to have a playable set to take to conventions and playtesting nights, and have a reproducible set to reduce the risk of losing any of the original cards. I had to rush to get it printed in time, so this prototype has the original art, enhanced with fresh layout linework and text using a font made from my handwriting. The game also fits in a much smaller box when printed, which is very helpful!

There are a lot of things to tweak; a lot of text, rules, designs, and artwork to finalize, but it’s so satisfying to see the game progressing past a dream and into reality.

If you’re going to Geek Girl Con this weekend (October 8-9 in Seattle) please find me in the Gaming basement and give it a try! I’ll try to tweet my location on Twitter to make it easier to find me.

Two wild Purries have been sneaking out for play time with some domesticated Chickenfoxes. They ask their mother for all the tasty foods they’ve heard about.

Inktober 3: Collect

Inktober 2016 3

Official Inktober prompt #3: Collect.

Wild Chickenfoxes being collected for relocation. They’ll be tagged and released.

This Inktober was inspired by Doug Argue’s chicken factory painting that used to be at the Weisman Art Museum (I can’t believe such a massive piece is Untitled!)

I got sad when I was drawing it (especially the chicken wire) so I decided they’re being relocated, which is still sad but more hopeful than the alternatives. Stay tuned for more of their adventure, we may not see the last of them!

October Stuff

October 8-9 – GeekGirlCon in Seattle!

GGC is one of my favorite conventions I’ve been to, so I’ve been preparing to attend with my Ambassador Plushie Chickenfox and a printed demo of the Chickenfox Derby game! I don’t have a table (maybe next year?) but I’ve been told I’m allowed to take the demo to the basement gaming room for play testing.

If you’re going to the Convention and want to find me, I will be attempting to tweet my locations on twitter at @ChickenfoxSTU. If you see me PLEASE don’t be afraid to say hi!!! Meet/hug the Chickenfox, get a picture (the kind where later I draw your cosplay), and get a sticker, I have loads of them just for you!

Also check out my pals at Valorous Games at booth 624!
You can see the final product of my layout work in their Valor RPG system book, and learn more about the next book, Villains Creatures and Foes, which is my next project for them!

October Patreon

If you’re interested in joining the Chickenfox Patreon, you have until the end of Friday (September 30) to become a Patron and get in on the October Patron rewards (including traditional art commission tiers – you’ll get a physical piece of art in October if you get in by the end of the day)

I updated all the art tiers to include immediate (no payment delay) digital request doodles, as well as a $4 tier that is just digital art, for those on a budget. Let’s see how it goes!

The Future Projects Poll has been really helpful! Thank you to everyone who has submitted a response! I’m still taking responses, if you haven’t had a chance to do it yet. It’s really short and helps me a lot :)

There’s definitely some stuff you all want that I didn’t foresee being so popular, and I’m really excited to do them!
I was reminded about how slow (and bad) I am at sewing and took Plushies off the list… but there are still the write-ins asking for them! So I’m starting to learn how to make it happen. Look out for a future poll about plushies. IT WILL HAPPEN. Just… it might take a while.

Introduction to Chickenfox Derby

In February, I started working on the Chickenfox Game! I’ve been wanting to make a game for a while, and after a weekend with friends in a snowy cabin, the concept started pulling together.

It’s currently in an playable alpha (not yet beta) while I expose it to playtesting and refine the rulebook and wording on the cards.

Here’s the current introduction:

CHICKENFOX DERBY

Chickenfox racing clubs from around the island are gathered to compete against each other in the ultimate Chickenfox Derby race.

Chickenfox Derby racing is an intense running sport with high stakes and big rewards. The racers are running as fast as they can, and you are their pace-keeper. Your job is to tell them when to turn so that they can stay on the road as much as possible. But Chickenfoxes aren’t afraid to play dirty. They steal points, force each other off the road, and sabotage whenever they can get away with it.

Each running club has three racers and a shared pool of backup racers that can tag in to help maximize their scores. The club that covers the most ground at the end of the meetup wins!

Chickenfox Poll!

I’ve created a little poll to see what you guys are interested in! It should take about… 30 seconds I guess. It’s 2 questions and a fill-in-what-you-want. It’s anonymous and does not require you to log in to anything. Thanks!

(if the poll doesn’t load, it’s located here)
