The picture was drawing when I am in depression, helpless and silly...
The streching hand on the picture expresses the weak resistance and the insignificant of myself.

It's a nice picture; a stange image - Nice texturing and detail! You say that's a "stretching hand"? To me it looks like the hand turns into a goo... it doesn't look like it's stretching...

Since this picture has an intended meaning, why did you choose a frog? :)

Great. I like the frog's expression. match well with the word helpless. :)

Just the fact that the frog is stuffed into a tin can tells me of weak resistance and insignificance, not the hand. Anyhow, great work

My god thats a disgusting sight! it looks like its head is bloated with gas with one eye fatter than the other...and as for the slimey hand. it reminds me of a ghostbusters toy i once owned that when you squeezed the figure he would inflate and ooz green slime!

good stuff

I love images that use animals in them, it feels like the frog is so depressed he is dissolving into his environment. Maybe the reason you started with the hand is because you use your hands for drawing and creating, maybe a "artist block" or you're feeling a little tired and washed away? I hope you are not depressed anymore, because this is fantastic work!

I like the highlights on the frog, it really make it look slimy and wet.

Have you try to choose a different tone for the tin to make it even more "cold" ? Perhaps a greyish-blue tone.

I would probably like the floor color to be even darker than what it is now.

Overall is very nice and creative.
