Very nice. I painted one in my December batch, and this particular thing took possibly longer than the rest together. The difficult part was following the canonical description without making it look like "a yellow part glued to a grey part glued to a green part". Muted tones and some blending were essential. You have made the overall effect work smoothly. Respect for that.

The story is a classic too, of course. The feeling of getting neck-deep in major trouble is immense. Creepy stuff.

Very nice work.  You and I may be the ONLY folks to attach the wings that way.  Most everyone else attaches them the opposite way up.  I think "our" way looks MUCH more alien and wonderful.

Mr. Froggy, well done!

That's very nice.  You've taken a goofy looking creature and actually made it feel 'real'.
