Cheshire Cat in Pixelmator
About couple years ago I watched Alice in Wonderland. The movie was really good, but the most admiring thing to me was Cheshire Cat. That is why I decided to create Cheshire Cat with Pixelmator. (:
Open Pixelmator and create a new document, I used 2000×1800 pixels. Fill the backround layer with black color. Select the Elipse Shape Tool and create this form.
Go to Layer > Convert into Pixels. Then go to Edit > Load Selection. With Gradient Tool fill the Layer with blue color.
In step 3 you also go to Edit > Load Selection. Add a new Layer and fill with black color. Then go to Filter > Stylize > Noise. Use 70% for Amount and select Monochrome. Change the Blending to Subtract.
Go to Filter > Blur > Zoom Blur and use 40.7 px for the Amount. Then go to Filter > Distortion > Bump Distortion. Use 380 px for the Radius and 47% for the Scale.
Add a new Layer. With Elliptical Marquee Tool create an oval and fill with black color.
Group all Layers exept Background Layer. Go to Layer > Duplicate Group. Then go to Edit > Flip Horizontal and put it by.
With Brush Tool add a point and change the Opacity to 70%. Do the same thing with the other eye.
With Pen Tool create some teeth and add shadows as well.
Using the same technique, create other teeth.
