Artwork Description

A froggish creature, reigning over his pond 'domain' or lilly pads and cattails. Even though I didn't create this image for any specific publication (just for myself), it's an illustration of the sort you'd probably see in a children's book. I'm not sure what the story here is; it's more up to the viewer to decide that for himself than anything.

Oh -- He's marvelous! He definitely deserves a book, though one does like to imagine for oneself what he may do with his kingdom....

My gosh! This picture brings me back to my long-gone childhood! It was the pictures like these that I saw in my storybooks that absolutely dazzled me! You have really been blessed with this amazing talent. Do the world a favor- become an illustrator of children's books or something...there are many people out there that would pay big money for art like this.

LOL!!! the provocative pose thats totally hey what is going on here fbi guys ? don't look at me that way

Guest's picture

I don't think it would fit a children's book. The provocative pose and smile of the frog make it more some kid of pin-up. Characters on pictures from children's books are not usually aware of the readers and so they can't strike poses for them. Smile

Your composition is clean: simple but efficient. Colors match nicely. Textures on the green parts is great. I love the mosaic package around it, very styly.

The shadow on the foreground is a bit weird placed to me...
The metallic texure on the crown is a bit approximative imo. (notice that I'd not done better Smile )

Great pic, congratulations...

Your coloring is superb! What medium are you using? If this was in a story book, that book would've become my classic! I love frogs! I wish somebody will hie you to do The Wind in The Willows!

Absolutely gorgeous! I love his hands; they're just wonderfully done. This entire piece has such a lovely feel to it. DEFINATELY worthy to be designated as an Editor's Pick.

Talk about attitude! No one would dare cross him. This is terrific. I love the coloring and the way you've presented him. The perspective is really, really good. It's a truly enjoyable work of art.

Gorgeous character! So dynamic and energetic. I just love this piece.

The context alone is hysterical! I'm reminded of the princess who kisses the frog who becomes a prince. I'm not sure if that's what you intended, but that's what I see! I love it.

Wonderful painting Amara, I agree with the previous comments; he has great character, the robe and setting are just about perfect and the colour is exceptional. Top quality.

I love the stature of the frog and the features on him look neat! I especially like the staff and just the whole pond. Smile
