Wallace the Witches Cat

By AngieLatham    
Sorry if you were expecting a spooky Halloween bit of Artwork from me today Wink

I have been too busy working on several projects......but carved some pumpkins last night and set them infront of the fire. I was intending to get my Black Cat Naboo to sit infront of the fire....but 'King' William Wallace here woulden't move for anyone and hogs the fire completley to himself, not leting the other two cats get a look in. He might not be a traditional black witches cat....but he sure is the scariest of the three. Pratchet fans will know him better as Greebo (the name he really should have had) Grin

Happy Halloween everyone Tongue

well Dave....a lot of patience! He did sit exactly there for a few minutes on his own, other times he was lying onfront of the fire but not central. The hardest part was getting him to keep still for the 2-3 sec exposure.....out of about 30 shots,this was the 'bigno' one Smile

A wonderful, warming, homely shot. It makes me want to sit back and relax in the warmth of that fire.

A 2-3 second exposure? This is great work and It must have taken you a long time to get this right. In fact, you might have saved time by spending many hours on one of your masterpieces! Have a great halloween and yes, I have not been on EPZ much lately, but I came here specifically looking for one of your treats! I even timed it to be #30...

This cat looks too nice to be Greebo!!

I'd expect Greebo to be scarred, one ear half torn off, filthy matted hair, an odour you could trip over.
Not the kind of cat you would say "kootchy kootchy koo, does Tiddles want a tickle?" to, more the kind of cat you'd say "What is that! Look Fred, I swear to you something's died in your kitchen and it's stinking the place up. Oh no! It just twitched! It's alive! So disgusting! I'm not going near that thing. James! Get your coat, we're going home." to.

Koothcy Kootchy Koo!!

lol @ Steve...if you tried saying kootchy kootchy koo to Wallace he'd take your hand off . He's only plenty of time yet to get a bit of scaring Smile
