Speedy little guy by imaginism Speedy little guy by imaginism
And away we gooooooo....
Here's one of many versions of a character design I (Bobby) did for that film that didn't make its way to the end.
Like the last few posts, we can't tell you what the character is about, but you can tell us your own version in 4 sentences or less, and I'll post the best ones by the end of the day!

-Bobby

Favorite description goes to :iconsagittarius-a-star:
That's old Gerald riding his trusty racing rooster, Ricky the Rocket!! Gerald competes in the Kentucky Rooster Smash Rally, and never once has he received a rotten egg over the head- the traditional trophy of those who lost. He's now well known for his racing rooster breeding program, which primarily involves convincing roosters that they are roadrunners. He's also known for holding rowdy parties until four in the morning with a gnome, a pig who plays checkers, and several cows in an old barn near his home in Dingly Den.

Why did the chicken cross the road? To get to Ned's Rocket Roosters! Ned takes boring old chickens and crafts them into amazing road runners! Ned tests all road running roosters before selling.

Cockfighting may be illegal in most of the world, but they never said anything about cockracing.

Derby Dale, a rather reckless old codger (even for a Sprite), is known for riding the only successful genetic cross between a roadrunner and a rooster. On Friday nights he likes to tell tales at the pub about his younger days; he's especially fond of telling about that time when he beat Gusty Gerald in a race from Tennessee to London. He's a little fuzzy on the details, though.

>>> Gus, last name unknown, is an Irish leprechaun who migrated to the States at a very young age where he worked as a busboy till he could fulfill his dream of buying a racing rooster. Of course, he couldn't afford a fully grown one so he invested in a fluffy, yellow chick, cared for and nursed it as much as he possibly could till it grew up to become a full-fledged racing rooster. Working his way up in the racing business did not go as planned, however - Gus had started racing at too old and age to become a true racer. Eventually drifting off the beaten track, he started making money by betting (and lost a lot, too), then accepted bids himself. Being the honest guy he then was, he gave bidders fair rates and always paid them what he owed. However, when he accepted one too many bids at too high a rate and couldn't pay the bidder what he owed him, he was badly beaten up, ending up with a concussion and a made-up mind: The honest business was simply no good.
Today, he is one of the most wanted non-human con artist in the Mid-West, travelling from town to town on his one and only accomplice: his trusted racing rooster.<<<

This film looks like it would have been really awesome. Too bad we'll never get to see it. But judging by all the artwork you guys have been posting lately from it, it looks like it would have been great.

At least that's what I see when I look at it. Great work on this, I like how you threw in a bunch of fine details. :]

it's obviously a Gaelic leprechaun chicken demolition derby, the rider is a veteran in the sport, never quite made it to the top, but always managed to stick around just below whatever one-hit-wonder was the champion that week.
