ON GETTING TO POLL
NEW ROUND RULE: WIPS PLEASE!
SUBMISSION FORMAT REMINDER
PLEASE REMEMBER TO WRITE YOUR COPYRIGHT INFORMATION UNDER THE IMAGE IN THE FINAL BURNING THREAD SO I DON'T HAVE TO HUNT YOU DOWN LATER!
Quick Check: Have You Submitted Your Chow Properly?
- is it named correctly? (ie, "CHOW#100_Oregano.jpg")
- has it been uploaded using the attachment editor?
- have you also uploaded or linked to your wips?
- have you followed the brief?
I decided not to go with a traditional Musketeer Puss, instead I took him up a century or so to Colonial America / American Revolution era.
My choice of coloring and fabric effect was to make it look like "Toile" Print Fabric, which was first made popular in the 1700s.

There once was a miller. But he died, so this story isn't about him. He left three sons to split his great wealth however they may. The eldest took the farm. The middle took the goat, and the youngest was left with the barn cat. "I guess I'll eat my cat and die," the youngest said. Alarmed, the cat pleaded for its life. "Bring me a tiny pair of boots and I'll grant you three wishes." The youngest (not being the brightest lad) rushed off and filled the cat's request. "Thank you," the clever feline replied upon receipt of his boots. "Now close your eyes and name your first wish..." The lad closed his eyes and began to imagine all the things he might acquire. The cat clubbed him on the head and ran off, never to be seen again.
The moral? Never trust a cat.

Here is my take on the kitty
Started with standard Musketeer cat, it wasn't the concept I wasn't pleased with, it was not being able to figure stuff out and how it was generally not coming out too well. I got fed up and then thought of "Badass lion with a robotic lower half with lazer eyes", I got rid of the lazer eyes, but kept the rest. So, Space Pirate Puss in Boots.

That's "O.G.R.E. Corp" in the text, just noticed you can't really read it in the smaller image I uploaded, and for those of you with your minds in the gutter, "puss" is also slang for mouth..
