View Full Version : Toad Mother

The old toad bowed low to her in the water, and said, “Here is my son, he will be your husband, and you will live happily in the marsh by the stream.”


In and effort to get some practice I developed some sketches based off of a popular childrens fairy tale. I must apologize for the quality of the scan, I'm having problems with my scanner.

Here is a close up of the part I intend to enlarge and just generally clean up on a seperate peice of paper before I scan it in and paint it in photoshop.

If anybody has suggestions for how to get a good texture on the skin I'd totally appreciate it!

Maybe you should use a custom brush to add some darker spots and brighter spot like toads have...

Arielmeldel: Thanks for the thought.

My internet has been down all day so I haven't been able to update. It's up again finally. I've learned so much about the brushes in Photoshop and how to change them while working on this project!
