The Frog Prince by jackieocean The Frog Prince by jackieocean
First impressions are very important. ;)

I've invested more time in this picture than probably any other picture that I've ever worked on. I really wanted to push my digital painting skills this time, and I'm really happy with the way this picture turned out.

It's based on the fairy tale The Frog Prince. I wanted it to look like a traditional fairy tale picture, but with a bit of humor in it as well. I took my own reference photos for the princess - I actually dressed up and set the timer on my camera and posed, since no one else was around at the moment I got the idea for this picture. I painted it all in Photoshop with my tablet. It took countless hours to get this picture to a point where I was happy with it, but it was all worth it. ;) This was completed in March of 2007.

Prints are now available!

Those countless hours of work were not in vain. This is *phenomenal*. I adore the hazy background, and...do I even need to tell you how much amazingness is happening in the foreground? I can shut up, you know this rocks.

This is absolutely astounding. Photo-realistic, I can't believe it was all done on Photoshop. Apparently you did this a while ago, but I sincerely hope you are still arting and made a career of this, because your skill level really is that exceptional.
