Tabby... by rockgem Tabby... by rockgem
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.

original is always best, even if people say otherwise because the remake wouldn't be there if the original wasn't made.
keep up the great work :)

again my thanks :aww:
true original always is that first idea has to exist to spawn others
and i shall try keeping the work up. ;fingerscrossed: since i made this one i've been working more on developing using a mix of apophysis fractals and photoshop - i started with basic flowers and animals like this one, now i move onto bouquets dress designs more complex animals and even figures i look back and it surprises me how much my method of working has altered and changed even in the short space of time since i made this tabby cat :faint:

same here :D
I was always trying to draw anime characters....now I just draw things my own style...even my own little cartoon character (galiath the art block) :nod:
I have a rejection pile of drawings that II, well, reject ^^; sometimes it's fun to look back on those and see how much I've improved ^_^
change in style is good, it opens you up to new ways to draw (or make fractals) resulting in an overall increase in skill. :D

ah i masted that ages ago - taught a friend who then excelled in that sort of style ~Dawn-of-the-River and then abandoned it for favour of other things.
i have fractals like that usually i save them in a file and look back to them to find a way to make them satisfactory to myself - then i do eventually post them. i never consider anything as a bad piece of drawing lit or fractal now just a work in progress some things just take longer to decide when they are finished :giggle:

thankyou so much for the compliment :hug: i just decided to go out side the box on accident mainly because i was still learning how to use apophysis to create fractals so i moved to combining screenshots of fractal images i made with work in photoshop and this kind of thing came out the other end :giggle:

nope its a fractal - well a fractal manipulation it started off as an almost abstract form created with a program called apophysis and then the details and colour tweaking finished off with photoshop

thankyou for the compliment :hug: and i have had a few people say that, possibly because when it comes to working with fractals i decided to think a little outside the box as such to end up with results such as this - it certainly was a littel experiment of mine that really paid off! :giggle:
