To reduce a little clutter on the 'What's New' page, I moved all of 03 - 05 updates here. Now you can see how and what was updated in the past, blow by blow. Enjoy. <:)
It's the last update of the year, - here's what's new this time.
Fan Art: There's 4 new images for ya! Brought to you by returning artist Luke Scott and new artists 'Kels' and B1.
Fan Fiction: William Blissey returns with another episode of his 'Faith of the Heart' story.
Fan Fun: There's a new page with the Candid Captions from 12/05 up and don't forget to check out the NEW Candid Captions pic for 2006.
Production Art: Added more material to the character sketches, character cleanups and storyboard sections.
This ends the 8th year Unofficial Cats
Don't Dance has haunted the internet, but the coming one promises to be
one that will be very busy. 2007 will be CDD's 10 yr. anniversary so as
2006 begins I hope to set in motion plans for a commemorative project,
finally scare up some material for the comics section, expand upon
Sawyer's Plane Crazy page and a couple of new fan art/writing activities.
Oh yeah. ;) If anyone has suggestions about what they'd like to see,
complaints..etc. I'd like to hear them. The goal is to make Unofficial CDD
a fun and informative place to visit, and although my skills are limited
in certain areas, I may be able to implement at least part of an idea.
Anyhoo, thanks for stopping in and best wishes for the new year. :)
Welcome back! It's been a long time since the last update, but real life and other fun slowed things down. Anyhow, here's a rundown of what's new this time.
Fan Art: There's 7 new images , the ones by Chris and myself have a Halloween flavor. Taral Wayne and Alyssa return with Sawyer pics and 'Misk' has a cute pic of a certain kitty couple.
Fun Stuff>Fan Fun: A week before Halloween a Darla Dimple pumpkin design was added to the printables section.
TheBacklot> Production Art: I did a little reorganizing on this page since parts of it were getting really lengthy. It's now been broken down into modelsheets, character sketches, character cleanups, Storyboard & Misc, and Maquettes sections for (hopefully) easier navigation. Check out Modelsheets, character sketches, Storyboard & Misc sections for some new additions.
If time and contributions allow, I hope to do a short update before Christmas, - deadline to send stuff is DECEMBER 20th . That's a wrap for now! :)

Fan Art: 5 new images this time. Welcome to new young artists Christina and Emmy. ;) Welcome back to Chris and another thanks to him for the idea for my Christmas image.
Fan Fiction: William Raymer strikes again with Danny and Sawyer's wedding story prt.3, - I think the idea is catching to other characters there too.
