Are You Sure They’re All Cats?

Posted by

For 4 stars this week, I completed the This Doesn’t Belong Here assignment.  I didn’t quite know where to start, but we had to choose movies.  I originally was thinking of trying to combine The Walking Dead and Breaking Bad.  I started by doing a Google image search for The Walking Dead, and came across the poster of Rick and Carl walking on the train tracks.  I immediately thought of the scene from The Aristocats when the kittens are walking along the train tracks.

For this assignment you need to mash up two different iconic movie scenes. However, you should aim to be as subtle as possible. Perhaps a famous prop that simply doesn’t belong or a character that looks a little out of place.

Once I started looking for scenes from The Aristocats, I thought it would be a great juxtaposition if I did The Aristocats and 101 Dalmatians! After finding both images online, I used Photoshop to add the puppy into the cat picture.  Since the colors of the cats were sort of grey, the white of the dog stuck out like a sore thumb.  I used the same color as Marie to try and darken the whiteness of the dog, so it looked like he blended in more. I probably could have gone for a shade or two darker on the pup, but I didn’t want to risk greying out his spots.


The Aristocats?
