A toad reads by firefly-light. A design for a thank-you card.

Ohh, this is so quirky and cute! I love the toad's expression and the detail in the book and the greenery around it. The light-source being the fire-fly is such a great idea and concept. I love everything about this! <3

I love the frog's expression. I wish I could make animals look "human". Great job.

Kim, this is great. The sense of light and color are fantastic. My only crit is that you could push the sense of depth further. Certain parts seem a bit flat, like where the frog meets the book. However, this gives it a kind of papery feel which is nice. Very fairy tale. Smile
