Frog Chair

This started out as a doodle of a big comfy chair, a la Mary Engelbreit. But I started sketching it with the arms and legs first, then the seat cushion. Without the seat back, it looked like a frog. So I just added the tongue and painted it green.
Sketched on paper then colored and cleaned up in photoshop. The background swirls are a photoshop brush from Miss M.

Very cool! I've had a couple of big, comfy green chairs in my travels... though none with frog tongues...

So funny, its great where your mind can take you sometime. It also reminds me of a sock lost in the seat cushion.

The frogs are beginning to gather in our pond now but I hope none are the size of an armchair - very funny! You have a great way of seeing things.
