Things went a bit wild with this one, and I ended up with about twenty odd layers. Still it was lot of fun to put it all together. I think I'll write a journal entry about how the idea came together.

A big fluffy cat as the God of war, why not.

Built with Gimp 2.8.2

The preset PS brushes can crash 2.6 but in the 2.8 you are more safe even if this can happen anyway, due to the .abr self extract for PS and component preset.

2.8 accentuate more with the brushes, you can now rotate the angle of the brushes and more friendly user setting for the brushes etc etc.

I think the new version of Gimp can use photoshop brushes but the format that they are saved in has to be changed. If you check out the Gimp Forum link on my profile page someone there will be able to tell you for sure.
The thing I like about the latest version is the single window mode, it's much easier to work with. I used to use 2.6 but I'm well pleased with 2.8.2.
