DON’T TOUCH THE FROG PRINCE.
You haven’t heard? Frogs of bright colors are deadly! SO KEEP YOUR UGLY MITTS OFF!
What a cruel fate. Turned into one of the most poisonous creatures known to man. Frog Prince… Forever alone.
If don’t follow me on Instagram, I was sketching up a more detailed version of a Frog King. He was angry. He was mean. He eats cowards for breakfast. Heavy handed sketching, half paying attention. Decided I wanted to try a lighter treatment. Thus this was born. I will revisit a more illustrative approach later.
Added a bit of a halftone deal for the shadow. Simple lines. Working with limited palettes is tough sometimes so you have to get creative. I’ve been implementing that technique in a lot of my stuff lately. I love it.
The crown was meant to be flat. Very flat. I also wanted it to be kind of the focal point, so I made it yellow. It is supposed to look like some sort of graffiti addition. Gives it a pop art flare.
I’ve noticed a lot of my stuff has been centered lately, so I wanted to try something new with the composition. I was always taught not to put things in the center… But you know… Break the rules and stuff. This time I dropped the dude toward the bottom left of the page. I think it paid off.
I’ve been behind with posting so bare with me. I have a couple more things to put up here. Check out Frog Prince on some products in the slideshow below!
