The stony cat

I just saw this super cute Kantoku illustration at Too bad it has compression artifacts. Good thing GIMP has filter called selective Gaussian blur which blurred similar color area but not the edges. With the right setting it can even clean print/paper texture from scanned materials. For anime kind images I usually set the max. delta around 15 to 20, and leave the blur radius to 5 pixels. Here’s the comparison.
