An artist's depiction of an Extended Unit Death


Happy Thanksgiving to all our members on behalf of the staff here at SEN.
We hope you all have a safe and wonderful binge in celebration of the harvest.




You know, a lot of people ask me, "Hey Roy, how do you draw these turkeys? Are you naturally gifted in drawing?" The answer is, in fact, no! Anyone with a little ambition and a lot of practice can make a wonderful turkey drawing. Allow me to show you in this quick tutorial.

Here's the secret: you can use your hand to help shape your turkey! Place your non-dominant hand on a flat surface, like on a table or desk, as shown below:


Next, using your other hand, begin drawing a turkey on the back of the hand. A turkey shape should come together naturally:


Simple, isn't it? Now that you have your turkey drawn on your hand, take a picture and load it into your favorite expensive image editing application. Remove all the background outside of the turkey you just drew:


Now comes the fun part! Color in the feathers of your turkey. You can use any realistic colors to have it come out looking nice. I chose pure yellow, hot pink, sky blue, and mystery red. When you're done, it should look like this:


The final touches are all you need now. Draw a beautiful wing on the center, an eye (looking in front of the turkey for realism), a beak, a gizzard, and the legs and feet. Remember that turkeys skip leg day, so don't draw the legs too thick, or it won't look realistic.


And there you have it! These amazing turkeys are incredibly simple to make, and yet they look so recognizable. Impress your friends with your artistic skills.

We accidentally left the Thanksgiving topic open in 2008, and chaos ensued. However, we here at SEN are not ones to learn from our mistakes, so we're going to leave this topic open for discussion. Feel free to share your Thanksgiving plans, or show us the amazing turkeys you've drawn!

That's not "hot pink". This is hot pink: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shades_of_pink#Hot_pink

It's on wikipedia, so it must be true.




None.

Hmm, interesting. I suppose we'll need a color expert to verify the pure yellow, sky blue, and mystery red colors as well.

I implore you to include hot pink on your turkey, if you choose to make one.

I order you to forgive yourself!

That's some fine turkey work.
