Space Kitten #28

 Here we are, at the end of Thingadailies! I think we can all agree that this image keeps well within my general theme of photo manipulation for fun without any particular talent. And nobody can argue that this isn't a kitten in space, so I feel that I've held up my end of the bargain.

I hope the rest of your year carries a little of the frivolity of space kittens with it.

Space Kitten #27

 I'm not sure how well this one will show up here. I probably should have blended it with fewer frames or made the image size smaller, but this is how we learn things.

I watched a tutorial which showed how to use a GIMP plug-in to help make things less manual, but then I found out that plug-in isn't supported on a Mac, so I just messed around with some things manually. Maybe tomorrow I'll find a plug-in that works for me.

Space Kitten #26

 I feel this one really lives up to the "space kitten" title. I think I'm going to try to animate something tomorrow. Just imagine how that will turn out!

 All I can say is that I would be sad if the wave tool ever disappeared. That's probably a sign that I should put it down and walk away, but who doesn't love a good wave?

Space Kitten #24

After tracing outlines for twenty-four days, I can confidently say that young kittens are blobbier than older kittens. They're all pretty cute though.

 Subtlety is not my strength. I love this.

Space Kittens #22

 Again, sometimes it's good to try things, even if they don't quite work out.
