I started with a photograph of him (you can see the original on the right hand column of this blog).
His handsome little face was isolated in photoshop and eyes were enlarged and slanted slightly upward.
Next I found a photo of a fashion model's mouth and morphed it to make the well known Cheshire Cat Grin. The chin and upper lip of Roy's face needed to be redrawn to accommodate the new mouth, and more whiskers and fur details were added.
Once the face was made, it became an object to play with in various settings.
The quote is from the original Alice story. It's what the Cheshire Cat replied when Alice asked for directions. "It really doesn't matter which way you go....."
Roy was pleased with the results..... it made him grin.
