Most Everything You Need to Know to Draw a Giant Turkey!

The Giant Turkey

The Giant Turkey

It’s Thanksgiving time! So let’s see some Godzilla sized poultry!

Anyone who’s been around a bit, knows that Thanksgiving’s my favorite f’ing holiday. Sure it’s got some questionable roots, but when it comes down to it, its just about spending time together, eating delicious things and appreciating who and what you have. And one of the best ways I know to do that, is by making people laugh with silly, and often poorly rendered drawings of birds.

reminder

This is like the 7th time doing this, so just to shake sh*t up this year, we’re asking that your birds be building crushingly, Japanese army fightingly, giant squid wrestlingly, huge!… But, I know directions are hard to follow, so do what thou will… Just make it bird-ish, give it some feathers or pimpled skin… don’t forget the scrotum neck and horrifying talons! Or you know just make it fun.

Oh and for the record “hand turkeys” are always welcome.

So there you go, Send us your giant birds, I hope you have a great holiday and know one of the many things I’m thankful for is you goofs always willing to play along! So sharpen up that scribbler, and go to town. Cause these birds ain’t drawing themselves! (drawings due midnight the evening of 11/23)

Haha! man, I swear my parents used to have a print of the original Rockwell version in the front hall! What a great assortment of turkey hair styles and facial expressions that translate to bloodlust… I am calling that these are only mostly giant! Oh and I offer my thanks for the stuffing restraint you showed here!

A battle as old as time! The king of beasts from the sea, and a giant silly looking bird! It’s funny, I always get so excited about turkey draw and then i remember its hard to draw an action turkey! Cause they are pretty much just a ball of feathers with a few dangling participles!

White man came across the sea, He brought us pain and misery, He killed our tribes killed our creed, He took our game for his own need….. Run for your life bird!!!! also Hi Connie!.

I wish it wasn’t so simple, but put something in a helmet that would work in “empire strikes back” give it a big butt and I’m giddy as F*k! even before we start talking about those lil teeny arms, and those rotund lil bulldog wrinkles!!!

I mean we’ve had a few over the years, but since i was a child of the 80s, I think originally, this is what I expected the bulk of our beasts to look like… scribble colored bombers, missiles that move along dotted lines and beasts that tower over buildings and F’ing love nuclear power! Nicely played! … also… maybe ice that ring finger!

Oh mulleted country bird! You may not be “book smart” but you obviously know how to have a good time!!!… Of all the goodness in here, I’m most curious about what changes in the world to make bush light comes in a juice box?!

Totally why they dont put “turkey of the sea” in a can! Those squiddly legs and that teeny tiny (but I’m sure full sized) submarine make me very happy! And still feels like you got a lil man eating plant stuck in your heart!

Hard to know if this is a lil trick of forced perspective or in fact the largest bird the world has ever known… I mean technically… i suppose it could also be a teeny tiny kind king… regardless, my hguess is they end up buds in the end cause thats what the holidays are all about!

I imagine the turkey is having this exact thought “This begs the question… what’s worse, baking in an oven? or having to share air with you two bores?!

Well that’s 100% a personification of the metallic city-scape sculpture that towered over the old Saks food court, blissfully dancing with a giant sean… I’m not sure what it means… but it sorta makes me want taco bell.

There is a fifth dimension beyond that which is known to man. It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition, and it lies between the pit of man’s fears, and the summit of his knowledge. This is the dimension of imagination. (hit the music!!!)

Hahaha so I guess we can take this hyper sexual, 70’s scifi bird as a good reminder why we don’t add extra fingers to our birds! God this is a great one!
