Tropes pertaining to Chickeon:


Lenaren

Lenaren is a future cartoon created by Chickeon and updates are posted on his deviantART page, which can be found here.

A difficult choice plagues the leaders of the six Lenarese superstates of the Republic of Chienne, United States of Chihuan, Unified Avian Monarchy, Greater Persian Theocracy, United Soviet Ursine Republics, and the People's Republic of Mashan. As the current and long-standing cold war between them all seems to heat up after a few controversial choices, all of them come to think over the prospect of war.

Chienne and Chihuan are close allies, and work under the name of the Chienne-Chihuan Axis, or just the Axis. These two countries, although very different, have leaders that are elected and capitalism reigns supreme. Chinenne is much more free than that autocratic and chihuahua-supremacist Chihuan, but they find a common ground through race and economy. On the opposite end of the spectrum, lies the dictatorial and communist Mashan and Ursine Republics. They are allied under the name of the Equine-Ursine Alliance, or the Alliance for short, and advocate communism and control. The Ursine Republics are more strict in their adherence to communism. The Axis and Alliance, due to their ideological conflicts, are locked in an eternal cold war. What's more, is that war could happen at the slightest provocation. The Southeastern Coalition containing the oligarchic, caste-driven Unified Avian Monarchy and the religious Greater Persian Theocracy, have not choice but to either take sides in a possibly world-ending conflict or somehow stick together.

President of Chienne Molly has more grandiose ambitions than what the citizens of Chienne will allow; Empress Ai is dealing with a possible rebellion on her hooves; Prime Minister Nikolai tries to inspire his populace to work through force; High Priest Rais is dealing with some unholy behaviours that would ruin him, along with a budding insurgency; Queen Nosizwe seems to have the only country that isn't under threat, but she is; and Chihuanese President Ferox, although secretive, has researchers working on a game-changing technology: nuclear power.

The one question taking the world of Lenaren by storm is: Is war worth it? Is it necessary? Can opposing cultures reconcile, or will the only redemption come from the barrel of a gun?

    Trivia 
  • Art Shift: So very much.
  • Development Hell: Five years and counting, with many shifts and changes.
  • Doing It for the Art: The ultimate reason he's still going after ~5 years.
  • Executive Meddling: For the better. Chickeon had an epiphany concerning whether Lenaren should be a more comedic or more story-driven. After a while, he decided on the latter.


Up North

Up North is a webcomic created by Chickeon and posted on his deviantART page, which can be found here.

Up North follows North Korea, a narcissistic, crazed man who has high ambitions but low common sense or funds. He is joined by his Latino friend Cuba, who tries to keep him grounded; his nerdy twin South Korea; his absolute enemies America and Japan; and his role models Russia and China. North Korea does not listen to anyone but himself (and sometimes Cuba, China, and Russia), and has unmatched determination to build a missile capable of striking down all his enemies.

Then again, barely anyone can stand him and mostly anyone could kill him, so Hilarity Ensues.

One of Tropers/Chickeon's projects, which has been worked on for around six months. However, the roots of this webcomic go back much further, with its unreleased predecessor dating back to around two years ago.

    Characters 

Applicable to all

North Korea

The eponymous Villain Protagonist of Up North. Friends with few and enemies with most, North Korea knows that everyone disapproves of his nuclear ambitions, but that doesn't mean he'll stop. He likes to yell at his twin, South Korea.

Cuba

Cuba is North Korea's closest friend and comrade, which means that Cuba gets away with quite a bit when it comes to him. He's trying to patch up things with America, but with limited success.

South Korea

South Korea is North Korea's twin sister, and is quite attractive. However, her attractiveness doesn't detract from her shyness and competency at video games.

Japan

Japan is well disliked by many for very good reasons. However, she is trying to get better. She enjoys drawing and writing, and has fun freaking people out.

America

America is very divisive. Is he overly loved or overly hated? Either way, he's fun, helpful, and usually not a jerk.

Russia

Russia, much like the bears the roam his land, is big, quiet, and intimating. However, he has hidden qualities about him that few know about.

China

Perhaps one of the few people that can try to get North Korea to listen to reason, China is a businessman who spends most of his time making gadgets in exchange for money.

    Trivia 
  • Art Shift: Even comparing the final designs to the first designs uploaded to dA, there is definite differences. Even more so, before the retooling, the art was much more simplistic and cartoony than it is now.
  • Creator Backlash: Before making this incarnation, Chickeon tried making a webcomic that focused on the entire world. This was a problem, as the scope was too big. These problems caused him to quit working on the comic altogether until he retooled it into what it is today.
  • Creator Breakdown: Caused Chickeon to stop working on it, pre-retool.
  • Creator's Favorite: Cuba.
  • Development Hell: And how! Chickeon went through many attempts with differing artstyles, and gave up once. It's nearing completion, but still unreleased.
  • Doing It for the Art: The ultimate reason he's still trying to do this.
  • Executive Meddling: If you can believe it was self-imposed. It was eventually overcome, but Chickeon went through multiple phases of trying to put more emphasis on story, characters, comedy, mirroring real events, etc. It Got Better, however.
  • Production Nickname: To friends: Chickeon occasionally refers to the characters as (food or consumable relating to character) Mommy/Daddy. For example, Burger Daddy (America), Sushi Mommy (Japan), ect..
  • Write What You Know: Chickeon has a big interest in Asia, and knows a lot about North Korea.
