Just for fun.

Hello everyone

So, when is a heart not a heart?  When it's a mutant penguin of course!  I was playing around with shapes in CAP and drew a heart using the shapes function.  I challenged myself to turn it into something else without using any other shapes and some time later, after a lot of copying, pasting, manipulating and even cutting with the scissors tool I ended up with this

Poplular opinion seems to be that this is a mutant penguin.  So then I played a bit more, this time using a circle too and ended up with

So this is obviously the good guy penguin!

And finally I played around a bit more with mutant penguin, added some bits from a digikit and got this

But he needs a caption to finish it off - any suggestions?  (but only polite ones mind!)

And now I think I should try and get back to doing some real crafting - but it is fun to have a play.
