Fighting Frog Character Illustration


30-Day Illustration Challenge

Day 9: Fearless Frog.

I’m still focusing on light and shadow in Adobe Illustrator.

For this illustration, I added a bit more depth to the shadows. I found it helpful to print out the contour lines and do some pencil shading for the light reference.

If I were to keep going, I’d add some soft purple reflections as secondary highlights (bouncing back from the environment).
