Attack Cat

Even though physicists of the early 1950s felt that nuclear reactions could be harnessed to create cheap energy, or perhaps, revolutionize mining, the most common public perception of atom splitting was its potential to create giant lizards to stalk Tokyo, ants the size of an Airstream trailer, and 50-foot tall women who would suddenly make things a little more equal in the battle of the sexes. Virtually all the movies of that era (that didn’t star John Wayne) included either flying saucers or mammoth creatures of some type, or, perhaps, both.

Now’s your chance to create a giant avian’s worst nightmare—a giant cat. The serious side of this exercise is to show you how scale can be manipulated to produce fantasy landscapes of gargantuan proportions. We start with a kitten photo, sunshine.pcx, found on the CD-ROM bundled with this book, and shown in Figure 15.16. The first step is to extract the cat from her non-sci-fi surroundings.
