Too Funny... how a few people all came up with a similar idea about using a frog. There is one person also in the 2d challenge that has a similar idea as well... Im just glad that I have posted my first frog sketch up the a day before the other 3D frog concept was posted.

Hah, looks like you even used the same pic for reference while drawing that frog .
Kurt, your model looks great but I'd have to agree with Azazel's comment - the sketch has a nice cartoony feel while the 3D part of the project seems to be moving towards photorealism. If I were you I'd treat that current model as a very solid base and modify it a bit. You could try exaggerating it's most characteristic forms, making the frog bloated, adding more muscles to it's legs etc.

I'm gonna wait for the mechanical parts to show up though - a skinny frog bound to a huge machinery piece would look pretty cool as well.

Keep up the good work

Witcher thanks bud.... I'll try adding the mech parts to see how he going to look.... The I can make the decishion to either go photo or more cartoony.

I can see him both ways a really nice photo real with him sitting on a leaf or branch and one where he is a bit more exagerated in his looks...

I checked out your 2d frog yesterday looking sweet=)

Old 03 March 2004   #24
