Quick shout out to Randi who suggested this illustration... a Chimera of a Panda and a Frog... playing the Wii. I took about 2 hours tonight and pumped this out. Here are the images:
after a couple sketches i came up with this... not enough like a frog so I added some froggy details (longer legs... tongue...) in flash and exported as a transparent PNG:
Decided to keep it simple... no real textures or shading in photoshop. just a background and simple lily pad and reflection. I think I could probably improve on it a bit... make it even more zany, but it makes me smile now so "Success!"
