Thanks you guys... yeah Eli A, I will be adding other " stuff " as you say ... as I said this is the first idea ... a little vague and I really need to refine the concept before I can move on ... best get into the character design I suppose

I dont get it why, but the last screenshot you posted reminds me so much of Jar Jar Binks...
I am just saying that...Not as a goo thing, or bad thing...It's just a thing

However, I would really like to hear why would a frog would want to go to the city...
Nice mood you got there, btw.

"I would really like to hear why would a frog would want to go to the city..."

good point I really didn't think that one through very well. perhaps it's to save the forest .. I guess it's a little unclear at this stage. I I'll have a think and go back to the concept stage. maybe he wants to get a job. or save his lady friend, stolen for use as a pet... ( GAH! )

Nice concept and good start to the modelling. I do like the saving the forest idea though, maybe if you had a pipe spewing toxic pollution in the forest somewhere in the frame with some careful placement you could get that message across.

Good luck with it though, I'll check back on it!
