    Beauty AND the beast, all in one! :D

    This was done in GIMP. I happened to come across this tutorial on deviantArt for doing fur/hair, and it seemed perfect for doing a tribble! The only real difference is that in GIMP, I used the Bristles 02 brush (standard with GIMP) when doing the smudges.

    "Ah, good! You found one of M'Ress' 'bra stuffers'." :wtf:

    Seriously, nice work on the smudging technique. That subtle shading around the outer edge, a tad darker underneath really gives it a sense of being quasi spherical.

    Sincerely,

    Bill

    ^Depends on how you look at it. Uhura would think it's adorable, while Nilz Baris would definitely think it's a beast!
