Chicken or Egg by William Reynish


Chicken 1

Created with Blender this was William's demo presentation for the the Peach project and he was accepted as a spare "which means I will be going to Amsterdam if there are any extra funds. I'm crossing my fingers!"

William has created a humorous and clever way of looking at the old saying: "What came first, the chicken or the Egg?" I found myself staring at this for a long time, mesmerized by the continuous cycle of the chicken's life.

You can catch the animation at his website along with his others in the portfolio as well as his 2D and 3D artwork.

Also the BlenderArtist thread.

In case the site is down GMac has pointed us to Blendervideos

and YouTube, the only issue is that it's best watched as a continuous loop as in the original.

  1. Exellent work !
    As I say I wanted to had a version as screensaver , looping all the time I'm out my desk , lol .
    I cross my fingers too to meet you in a cool place, William ;)

  2. Well, you too David!

    My server really seems to have died miserably! Unfortunately, since it's the weekend I cannot do anything about it. Hopefully I'll get it up on monday.

    Thanks all. Cheers
