Skullduggery

Yule-tide pleasantries to all! Finally bought myself a half-decent camera so I can start taking some useable reference shots - went for a Canon 600D. I'm no photography expert but it seems to be a good choice for pictures which don't look like they've been taken by a drunk on his camera-phone at 3am and is still under the "more money than sense" price threshold. Also found these money banks for £20 each which make for pretty damn good skull reference. They were buy-one-get-one-free in store if you live near an Urban Outfitters...

Frog Prince

Chow entry for this week - going for a Disney/Dreamworks style take on a frog prince. The main idea was to have him able to get facial expression across and to appear as a spoilt, sporting prince who is quite comfortable being half-frog (because he's so "awesome" that it doesn't matter). I've uploaded  a rough sketch with some initial notes which hopefully shows where I was coming from, although some of the elements just didn't work out...
