Thanks! Maybe I should do another froggy thing. I spent a lot of time painting the textures for their skin. Might as well use 'em.

Sure enuf, this one is really good, I'm impressed by it. :D Make more!

PS - When my bro was in college, one of his art instructors was famous for ceramic frogs, and my brother at that time took to making what he called 'suicide frogs' (ceramic frogs blowing their brains out)

Your brother sounds like a character. =P
I wonder what a fractal would look like, mapped onto a frog?

Yes, he is. All of us are nuts ya know. :giggle:

I'm not sure a fractal would work mapped on a frog, but there's no harm trying. Certainly the patterns you are currently using work really well.

I am tempted to ask you to make a Poser figure for me, btw, to put in the center of my latest piece 'The Beginning Place - number 2'. Perhaps a nude, curled up in a ball, fetal-like? The Beginning Place is, after all, Genesis, Origins, The Womb. So thats why I was thinking of this addition to the piece, and you of course have done lotsa nude Poser images, right? If interested, write me back, please. Thanks in advance.

I could try. Poser figures tend to look more deformed and unnatural the more you bend them. I could give it a shot, though.

Thanks! Lemme know how it works out, and don't worry too much because it does not have to be very large, so lots of defects will probably not even be noticable

But wait. I just realized something else. The viewpoint can't be that of Victoria, it's that of that frog up in the sky, reflected in the center of the sphere.

Reminds me of a watercolor I once did: a view in through a window with mullions casting shadows on a flight of stairs. Rather a large problem in perspective to do entirely by hand. But I don't think anyone realized it was a sort of puzzle picture. The shadows implied that the light source was behind the viewer's head, which would mean that in the center of the picture should be the shadow of the viewer's head. Instead there was the tiny shadow of a butterfly, implying that the viewer was a butterfly. I don't think anyone understood. Maybe one day I'll do that again, this time in POV.

But do butterflies see the same way as us? Maybe it was a little tiny person riding on a butterfly? Hmmm.... :D

Wow, a lot of steps to go through, you're pulling together a largish array of tools, with a great result.

I was puzzled by the reference to Victoria3, but just now found her. Cool :)
