Colouring Book: Mythographic Wild Winter - Joseph Catimbang

The second image from this book that caught my eye right away was this amazing giant frog and small village. I decided to colour him like the Peacock Tree Frog which, if you give it a google, is a stunning animal. It was very complicated to try to imitate, but the wildness of the pattern allowed me some leeway and creativity. 

For this picture I wanted to try an entirely Copic background. It was a bit nerve-wracking as I find this kind of background difficult still. Skies like this do lend themselves to a few streaks, but too many and it looks awful. I'm very proud to say this came out exactly as I wanted it to! I think it's just the colours that compliment the frog and really add a cosy feel to the page. Once I was finished with the page I added splatters of white gesso for the snow, but I added way less than the previous page since the sky was so clear and I really wanted that frog to stand out.
