Yaaay for the Anthro Collab Contest!
Have I talked about how much I love *COALMANE
today? No? I love Coalmane. If you were thinking to yourself "Wow Neko, these animals look totally awesome," you can thank Coalmane for that. Since this is a collaboration contest, she did one half of the work, and I did the other. So she drew all the awesome characters, and I colored it. I wanted to play around with it in Corel, but it was acting weird, so I went with Photoshop instead.
The theme is fairy tales/nursery rhymes/fables, and our fable is "The Charlatan Frog". I couldn't find the text to share with you guys, but it's basically about a frog who becomes a snake oil salesman, and fools all of his animal neighbors into buying his fake miracle cure. That is, until a smart-ass fox comes along and spoils everything by pointing out that the "miracle cure" must not do much if the frog can't even cure his own moist, warty skin. SO THERE.
So yeah, this is our entry. Coalmane, if you have any suggestions of things to change, let me know within the next day or so so I can update this before the deadline. I tried to follow your suggestions, though I just made the lines a little more brown then black as far as line-changing went. I'd like to think it turned out rather picture-book-esque.
Textures and lines came from *COALMANE
, colors/shading came from me
PS: The sheep are my favorite part. Also, there are only three other entries, and the deadline is in a week or so. I think we stand a chance at winning (though we'd probably win anyway because the drawing is AWESOME.)
