View Full Version : Strawberry frog

04 April 2006, 08:52 PM
Hi there,
this evening I decided to post what I started for fun and for relax a week or 2 ago.
I dedicated very few hours to it, it's not so detailed.
the frog, the flower and the fish are based on photo references.
I've decided to keep the frog bigger than the real size.
It's an energique mix of strong colors that I like very much (remember my ladybug in my CGportfolio)
I'm trying to add the depth that now it's almost not visible
Comments and critiques are as always welcome (

Looks beautiful, are you going to define some sharper edges? :)

Thanks JM :)
Yep a good sharpening is necessary... the problem is: how??? :D
The flower looks like a ghost :wip:
I tried to add some more shadows for enhance the depth of water and leaves.
How is it?

Nice work!

Maybe using smaller and more hardness brushes should resolve the problem with the flower.

would it be ok if i had a quick go? just to try and resolve that sharpness/depth issue you seem to have.

the issue was cause by the speed I produced the first step of this picture in Artrage(I don't have much time so I try to make speed paint :p ).
I used soft brush and so I didn't prepared a good basis for a detailed version..:cry:
I'm trying to solve this..:banghead:

Added some water reflections on the leaves (
another pair of modifications, one for fun and another more serious :) (

hi there.. I continue with small modifications here and there.

Hey really nice progress. Maybe you could only do a really small portion of the image sharp? That could save effort. As if the lens has a very short field of focus. :) heheh, just a thought.

I think the plants might be too visible or bright under the water.

Ciao :)
Direi che ora come nitidezza dei dettagli del fiore ci siamo, magari renderei un pelo piu morbidi i bordi spece nella parte inferiore e, io personalmente, darei un po piu di nitidezza anche ai dettagli delle foglie e della ranocchietta per renderli piu uniformi ... ma questi sono gusti personali :)
cmq un ottimo lavoro mi piace come hai pensato la scena :applause:
Aspetto i prossimi sviluppi , a presto bye bye :thumbsup:
