So. Many. Chocobos. And all shiny.
And finally Onyx has her little brother... who isn't going to be "little" for much longer. That growth spurt is just around the corner.
So yes, another adolescent chocobo! Obviously there was a bit of a redesign between Onyx and Cobalt.
Likes: crackers, diving from high up into deep water, staring contests
Dislikes: cicadas, when all of the leaves have fallen off the trees
His eyes are a lot more vibrant green, but adjusting their color made the blue a bit too vibrant. Therefore I declare laziness.
Okay, by now they all look adorably hungry.
Slightly more refined... and slightly more hungry...
My first made-to-sell batch of just-hatched chocobo chicks! ...And they all still look hungry...
Chauncey's a shy fellow who seems to prefer quiet activities like puzzles. (You don't think chocobos can like puzzles? Shows what you know.)
The product of ten full days of work. There was a moment of panic when the yarn I'd been using for his legs and feet disappeared without a trace and seems to have been discontinued and sold out everywhere, so... I tried another kind for the beak. It actually worked better than expected, plus forced a slightly new method for the toes. Well, different is good.
Another giant chocobo, this guy sits at just short of 18 inches in height to the very top of his crest (while sitting, as he doesn't stand), 10 inches from chest to tail, and 9 inches at his widest point. 10 days. Sheesh.
Cecil (left) is spunky, energetic, and all-around the kind of chocobo you'd want at your side. Until you find out that he will do anything for a tuna sandwich. Long story.
Jean-Luc (right) tends to be, maybe... a little over-serious. It's not that he can't lighten up, it's that it takes time. Or someone falling down, that'll do it.
Likes: adventure, playing games, making new friends
Dislikes: people with no sense of fun, cloudy days
Named for Caroll Spinney (a.k.a. Big Bird). The name just kind of popped into my head while I was looking at him, go figure. Caroll's eyes are a very dark purple, by the way.
