Re: Paint my cat?

Enjoyed the play Dak; used several DAP presents (ran consecutively on top of each other inside DAP) before added some G'MIC to the mix. I attached a lower quality and smaller version; click link below for high quality/rez version.

Dak, Nala is beautiful, as is, and I hope only to show how lovely she can look in another media. Your photo shows off her fur beautifully.

Can't resist a cat :-) She is a beauty. Thanks for the play, Dak. A quick smudge from me...

Lovely work from all so far :-)

What a pretty kitty! I used the trace tool in Inkscape and the pen drawing tool in G,mic, and added a texture.

Hey Lyle! Thanks for including the high rez version. I also did mine in DAP and I have a question for you about how DAP resizes images. Is there a way to set DAP to leave the image size to what the original is. Here is what it does to mine.... if the original image is 1000x800 pixels/10in x 8in/ resolution 100 then when DAP finishes with it the new image is 1600x1280 pixels/5.333in x 4.267in/resolution 300. I cant seem to find an option to change it to use the image settings of the original. Do you know if there is one? Thanks,

Dak
