ok a friend of mine ( who is not on DA but looks a lot ) after seeing my cute 'foxlet' [link] and 'wolflet'[link] pictures asked me to do him a kitty and a tabby kitty at that lol - so Josh if ya decided to look this ones for you

also it reminds me a little of my own cat that usually as now invades the side of my desk as i work so i guess this is for her too - if anyone is curious about my kitty- there is a photo of her lurking in my gallery somewhere (probably several of her actually) but its called 'sleepy desk invader' [link] :giggle:

Edit: to clear up debate on this picture that is at present going on, the image was created in Apophysis. and then edited some in photoshop to finish the piece off - essentially neatened up the shape put a curl to the tail and emphases the eyes and whiskers
there is a discussion as to if this ought be in digital art or mixed media or other digital opposed to fractals
but essentially it was created as a fractal piece then tweaked some.
it is also put in my gallery in a folder titled fractals and edited fractals giving some indication as to what the images within contain

generally when i have categorized other such pieces as this in the misc. digital categories or such i found that DA staff have re-allocated them to the fractal category - so hence this one is in fractals where i saw fit to put it
if this is incorrect then i am sorry and the DA admin can feel free to move it as they wish

Edit : A DD!

i really can't believe it i am over the moon!
firstly a huge HUGE thanks to two people
:star: thank you so :iconjacquijax: for suggesting this for a DD
:star: thank you to :iconcmptrwhz: for featuring it as a DD

then also thanks to :iconvirginprune: who convinced me to dabble with this fractal stuff to begin with
and to everyone who commented and :+fav: this piece your support is greatly appriciated and always will be :blowkiss:

and lastly but not least to Josh - who suggested i should make this piece :heart:

EDIT II: when this piece was originally submitted to Deviantart there was no 'Fractal manipulation category' so it was just submitted to fractal. since then the category for fractal manipulations has been created and this image is now there.

Look up what a fractal is, you'll find that this isn't one.

its a fractal manipulation its why it is in the 'fractal manipulation' section of the gallery. - look up distinctly what a 'fractal manipulation' is - also read the artist comments :shrug:

Please excuse past me, he was stupid. You'd be surprised how much less judgemental and ignorant people can be in a few months.

he biggest error I find people will make is that the information is there but its not always read correctly, we can all have moments where we look back on our past and think 'gods in that precise moment i was a dick' I know for certain i have moments like that, so its all good, no need for explanations and apologies we all live and we all learn.
