“Time’s fun when you’re having flies!”
Just a quick post. I think Kermit’s quote sums up my latest bookmark pretty well. A poor unsuspecting fly has landed on what he thought was a slimy, moss covered rock, but as he soon will find out, it’s a very hungry frog.
I thought I’d make something that was a bit comical, while also allowing me to practise close ups on frogs. The legs look a bit messy, but the rest turned out okay. I think the frog’s eyes worked out pretty well. The fly was fairly hard to paint and I had to resort to painting his legs and wings with a pencil dipped in paint because of how small he was. The orange background has come up darker on the scanner than the original, but that doesn’t matter too much.
Overall I think this picture was a success, but I’d love to hear your opinions and thoughts to see where I could improve.
