Pantry Cat & Teh Cookie Kitteh Choir make their debut
CATDIP V is finally underway.... This time around we're doing album covers for imaginary bands. The original picture for the first round was already manipulated--Mom put a tabby cat in her pantry. The theme was Religion, so I invented Pantry Cat and Teh Cookie Kitteh Choir. I found some wig images to cut out to give Teh Kittehs some style, a song for them to sing, and away we went.
I drew the text and scanned it into GIMP, and then used the bitmap tracing tool in Inkscape to make pngs. (That was new for me, and SO EASY! I am going to experiment so more with that on more complex line-art scans and see how it goes. I'm hoping it's a good solution, because I really hate doing the magic wand/eraser stuff just to try to get a good black-and-white image.) I used kuler to pick the background and text colors and then just fiddled with the layout til I got tired of messing with it ;-)
All in all, I'm very pleased.
