Got You! by Lizzy-John Got You! by Lizzy-John
Digital over pen and pencil, done in Corel Painter.

I loved catching frogs when I was a kid. Though I woulda been the happiest little girl on earth if I'd ever caught a frog that big. We had enough trouble with the regular adult bullfrogs; Just couldn't sneak up on those guys! But that's probably how they were able to get so big in the first place c:

Comments, critique and faves all welcomed and appreciated. Hope it looks okay!

Also, there is a frog icon at deviantart. Yusssss:

How adorable!!! It's so warm and full of curious wonder.

Reminds me of how my little sister would catch rolly pollies and show them to me.

I would scream and run!:XD: I HATED bugs!

Great job! I was wondering if the frogs were giant or if the children were very little but your explanation cleared that up.

Wow, beautiful picture. The mood created by your color choices is making me very nostalgic for my own childhood, which was spent primarily outdoors by the creeks. I kind of wish you would have given the ripples by the girls feet a bit more depth with the addition of some darker colors, but really it's not that big of a deal.

Our catfish pond got a lot of big bullfrogs... before we put the catfish in. And fairly said, I would be incredibly happy if I ever caught a frog that big!

I used to "fish" them.... You can do it with a red piece of material, it works.... However, when you have to catch the frog after, then it becomes less easy xD. This picture is very lively, this is a great work !!!

I had a nightmare like this last night. The frogs... they were everywhere.... *shiver* But seriously, really nice work here. I espcially like how the frogs shine and how the water looks so reflective and still translucent. That doesn't change the fact this creeps me out tho ;)
