Colored Frog

Used for another process tutorial on the art center blog.
EDIT: Added some more transparency to his throat.  I can't decide which is better.  What do you think?

  5. I like the more transparent one and how I can see the frogs body through his throat. Very cool. The extra detail in the eye's is awesome!

  9. I prefer the first. In the second, my eyes focus so much on the highlight that I miss the awesome reflective light coming from the floor.
    guess it's all relative.

    i like it.

  10. I'd use the transparency, but leaving the red lines visible (full opacity).
    I like it!!! :D

  11. I like the second better. The transparency helps connect it to the frog. Otherwise it kind of looks like an unripe tomato in it's mouth (sort of). ;)

  13. when the first one was posted, my eyes were begging for some opacity! haha.

  14. In the second one I like the details (like the sprinkles in the eyes), but the two white highlights are too much in my opinion. I'd prefer the highlights to be somehow between both versions, probably more like the first one.
    great painting anyway.

  15. The first. I agree that the idea of the transparency is bang on, but the reflection is distracting mee too much.the rendering on both though is SUPERB. You are the king!!

  16. Second one looks too glass-like. I suppose he could be wet. But he doesn't look wet, so the first one seems the most biological.

  19. Just amazing, this little critter really is alive, isn't he?

  20. Wow Sam . . . . HUGE RESPECT!

  21. I say first. Great blog@

  22. I prefer the second, more transparent one to the first. The highlight on the throat is a little bright, but adds to the inflated tension created from the interior air pressure. The overall feel is more thrilling due to the appearance of the membrane being so thin, almost as though it could burst any moment. Great stuff!

  23. I am totally going for the 2nd one. Primarily because I can sense it's texture more. I know what it would feel like if I touched it. Which makes it very 'real' to me.

    this is much more interesting than the without transparency........ it looks a realistic type when it has transparency.. wow great work..

  26. I guess the one below with high specularity is better,at first instance it just computes in my head that its transparent, I had to follow closely to the above image when you mentioned about transparency.
