The Princess and the Frog, Jon Bonebrake (2D)



Title: The Princess and the Frog
Name: Jon Bonebrake
Country: USA
Software: Photoshop

I was inspired by the Brothers Grimm tale to create a scene from the "Frog Prince". The princess has been in the fields and forests collecting flowers and putting them in her hair when she came across a large and strange looking frog. I wanted it to be 'in her imagination' more so the frog just looks like a frog and no crown or anything silly.


Painted over the course of about 3 weeks, all in Photoshop using a variety of brushes and textures. Used lots and lots of layers and the original is very large. Hand took me awhile and looked in a little mirror beside my desk a lot. Used a friend as reference for woman's pose. C & C welcome!

Ksenia, thanks for commenting on the lighting. I played with the lighting a lot until I liked it.

Hey, nice to see another fairy tale illustration!
Beautiful portrait, very soft and nice values and excellent textures on the fabric.
I would prefer a more defined background, or at least a "middle"-ground that provides some sort of identifiable shapes and objects. I think with a bit more attention to the backdrop, this could be my favourite this week

Jon,

Beautiful work. The concept, lighting, and rendering are excellent. The only thing I wonder about in terms of crits is the proportion and angle of here hand/arm. Something looks off to me. Otherwise, it is still a great piece. I really like the rendering of her face and hair. Details are really good too!

Very beautiful!

you did an awesome job on the lighting and her clothing, and the flowers, and her face looks just beautiful.
i love the mood and all around feel of this painting, it draws me in and makes me want to know the characters.
5 stars from me, good work
