Illustration Friday: Leap

Leap? Obviously what first came to mind were frogs. I mean to me, it had to be frogs; bunnies hop and kangaroos jump! At first I just had these three frogs leaping through the air. Then I was inspired by something my best friend did this weekend.

What could be more perfect than a pond full of frogs throwing a Leap Year Party? Frogs are leaping from pad to pad, enjoying the jams of The Croakers all night long! I can't wait to see how others interpreted this topic at Illustration Friday.


  1. I love the nice touch of adding the noisemaker to the one! Great job!

  2. These frogs are so much fun Dee!

  3. hahaha, these are so cute.
    I imagine them listening to some cool music while they leap about.

  4. Great frogs, very nicely designed. I also really like the sky. Terrific brush strokes there. Is this watercolors, or acrylics?

  5. Ryan, it's acrylics. I don't have enough patience with wc. :)

    Great leaping frogs! I like the composition and the cute lilypads on the back. I was wondering what medium you had used,,, I like the look and feel of acrylics on paintings, though I have yet to try it. Great color choices too, the nice blues against the green, and the fun red and white noise maker. Very nice!
