View Full Version : Mystery Cat on Layers?

04-17-2014, 12:17 PM
So, every once in a while, when I move a layer, a cute little cat-head pops up under the layer and scares me half to death.
Is it supposed to pop up at random times?
Ha Ha, it's so funny. :D
Every time I see it, I nearly jump out of my chair. (Because I'm not expecting it).
It's happened like... seven or ten times, and I still freak out.

(Didn't know if this was posted anywhere else... sooo...)

His name is Tycho and is Ambient Designs resident mischief maker, belonging to MattRage. He likes to hide under the layers in ArtRage Studio and AR4. In previous versions, he'd nibble on the edge of layers and even leave paw paint trails across unattended canvases.

That's so cute!
I've never seen an art program do that before. (And I've seen quite a few).

I would hate to think what Mr Ploos would make of that cat popping onto his screen unbidden. He talks about "kicking the cat" as the expression goes. I wonder if fear of the feline is what's keeping him from entering the layer labyrinth. Tycho's a playful little detail indeed!

I have my own cat in the room with me, while I use AR4 (usualy)... so Tycho never aproached, so far... he does not like competition or he respects other cats dominion :-)

I wish we could get a cat, but my dad won't let us. He hates cats.

The thing that worries me is, it's always just his head. Where's the rest of him?

I enjoy Tycho.....I treat him as if it's my own 'Cheshire cat', but without that mischievous grin....Thank God!

The thing that worries me is, it's always just his head. Where's the rest of him?Hopefully not mucking' about with to much mischief between the layers...

He's always a welcome surprise......
