Anonymous: What do you think the G5 ponies will look like?
I AM THE FUTURE.
It just occurred to me that the more I draw something, the bigger its ears get, and the smaller its nose/snoot gets.
Well, maybe with the exception of the Robbiekitten when it comes to the nose.

omegaresnovae: Okay, for those of us not in the know, what is line-smoothing, and why is it desirable?
Well, basically, it’s the difference between this:
(Sorry, but Lisa was the only example I had of trying to do lines in Photoshop. I also had to crop it, as you couldn’t really see the lines clearly enough otherwise.)
The Photoshop lines are all wibbly-wobbly, while the SAI lines are crisp and clean, because there’s a stabilizer function (though, oddly, I just tried turning it down to 0, and it didn’t seem to make a difference…).
Also, not everyone has access to a tablet, and may be scanning in some hand-drawn work. As someone who formerly had to go that route, hand-drawn lines aren’t always the smoothest.
Thompsonkitten (aka “Jellybean”):
The Thompsonkitten (or “Jellybean”, as named by his human counterpart, due to his seeming affinity for the sugary little morsels), is an Exotic Shorthair kitten, and a very jolly little fellow. He is highly playful, and enjoys jumping and sliding into empty bags and boxes (the latter of which also serve as prime spots for a quick catnap).
He currently resides with Thompson’s family, where he spends his days playing and napping just about anywhere that looks fun or comfortable. When not at home, he can be found carousing with the other GravityKittens, particularly at night (their favorite time). Overall, Jellybean greatly prefers the indoors to the outdoors, as he isn’t very fond of the chilly night air. But, that still doesn’t stop him from hanging out with the rest of the gang, no matter where they travel (he just makes sure not to forget his mittens).
As mentioned before, Jellybean has a great fondness for his sugary namesakes, but his favorite food overall is ground hamburger (especially if mixed with rice).

Anonymous: Thank you for putting up with all of the crap thrown your way. I owe you an owlcat at some point in the future.
Anonymous: Apparently there is also a Cipher owl in addition to a Cipher cat and all of a sudden I think of Cipher owlcat.
(Because you know Bill would have to be a winged owlcat.)

Anonymous: Let me get my Steve Irwin suit out for a moment... *ahem* Now here's a real treat, lads - a glimpse of the majestic Northern Tenafly Viper in its nat'rl habitat! Now, this specimen's very jumpy, she's had a lot of critters tryin' ta start brushfires in her territory, but she saves most of her venom for troublemakers - s'long as ya stay calm and don't go romping 'round like a twat, she'll not hurt you. See, lookit that, ain't she a 'beaut!
That just made me imagine Steve Irwin coming upon the owlcat as it’s just sitting on a stump, nibbling on a slice of cheese.
