Title: The Princess and the Frog
Name: Jon Bonebrake
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!
