    The fact that both the frog illustrations are done in pencil just blows me away. The colors in both are so rich. Wow!

    love those sparkling highlights making it a wet frog – all the more juice for the arrows. I read once that American artists call those hightlights ‘farkles’ rather than sparkles. Great drawing.

  • hmm.. first I’ve heard of that but then I don’t really “hang out” with artists..

    Exquisite drawing!! The frog looks like he just might jump right off the paper! Did you use black paper for your background?

  • No, not on this one. It was white bristol, if that’s any help.. and thanks!!
