The frog sculpts are some of my favorites as well. Love what you've done with him! The eyes, the pattern, the little details, excellent. As far as the teeth go, pacman frogs have teeth. ;-)

Great job.

 

Of course these frog people are clearly mutations so teeth are just a product of that mutation.

 

Love the colours.

These are really well done, love how realistic you got them (well if spear carrying frog-men were real)!

That is a WONDERFUL piece. The miniature REALLY compliments your painting style...since I enjoy your style that adds to the attraction for moi. BRILLIANTLY WELL DONE!

Thank you. Wiebe's frogmen are really fun figures.

By the way -- I just wanted to toss in there that I LOVE all the details on that staff -- both in the original sculpt (I love Wiebe's stuff!) and in your painting of it.  :)  I was a bit confused about the thing at the top of the staff while painting -- is that a SHELL of some sort, or some sort of strange spiny fruit, or ... huh, a fish?  I guess a blowfish it is, then!

 

I'm painting my frog-men up as Croaks for Iron Kingdoms.  I like the Jason Wiebe froggy guys better than the big-chinned cartoony guys from Privateer Press.  (I mean, they're fine sculpts and all, but they look a little too much like trollkin with fewer fingers in the Privateer Press version.  It's like the first Croak was doing the "ribbit!" thing with his throat expanded, and then the next sculptor came along and thought that was just how its chin was naturally shaped, and now they're ALL like that, ALL THE TIME, which doesn't quite seem right to me.)  I've gone back to a "frog demon" mini I partially painted up, and I'm putting it on a 50mm base to paint it up as a custom "warbeast."  Incidentally, it appears that Croaks in IKRPG do have teeth (despite being mostly frog-like) so I guess I won't mess with adding on froggy putty tooth-hiding lips after all.  ;)

A little more playing around.  After some comments on companion figures to this one, I added selective gloss and matte finishes.

Apparently I was using the wrong SKU, the temporary Kickstarter one rather than the actual store one.  I have corrected the thread title and have resubmitted this figure to the Inspiration Gallery.

Well, I'm glad you fixed the thread title; somehow I missed this the first time through.

 

Very nice job; I love the use of both matte and gloss finishes on him.

Did you notice in the Reaper store, Mudcroak is different? He is holding the trident like one of the squog minions instead of the fancy cool staff with the puffer fish. I would like to maybe get a few more frogs and I love Mudcroak but the trident is my least favorite of the weapons and makes him less special. I hope it is a mistake on the store and not how he is actually be sold now.
