okay now for a real comment after doing my own. XD I really really really admire how you got your reflective wet look on the frogs back. I struggled so much with it. your spots are really well rendered too I feel and the color balance is pretty dead on with the ref. the light speckled texture you used to works really well as it gives it a really believable frog back. Well done Marla! <3
Oh, wow, your frog turned out awesome! The colors are just spot on, and you did a wonderful job rendering the spotted pattern on its back. Also, the highlights on the frogs skin are nicely done, as well. Your speed paints always have this crispness to them, that I just love! ^^
I have to agree with Wolkenfels, though. The frog does seem like his floating a bit. I know that if you had a little more time to work on it you would have been able to further detail the stones underneath it. Still, it turned out great!
yeah, we're sot of a study group, the pictures are chosen by *Sparkyyy and a couple of other people, and they're usually challenging in terms of color and rendering, with a learning curve. The end of the month has a tiger for example The flamingo and frog are more simple in comparison It's very useful, the landscape challenge taught me a lot, I hope I can keep up with the animal one on this busy busy April. ^^
Pretty picture of that pretty frog! I really like how you set the highlights and how wonderful three dimensional it looks!
The underground could be a bit darker so he is more solid on the ground - right now he is floating a little bit. his belly is a bit more rounded in your study and therefore his front legs come up higher. But that is nitpicking over an awesome picture. I am with you Animal April is great.
I totally agree. I did the stones first, without having the frog to guide myself with, so that's why the leg positions seem kinda disconnected. I don't really like how I did the "fingers" either, they look kinda rough to me, on top of the fact that they hover weirdly over the background
