Uh-hu, Uh-hu, Uh-hu.





Frogs are so cool. They're cartoony in real-life, and they just get more fun when you make them more cartoony. I was having a blast with the frogs, so I kept going. All the entries were amazing this week, by the way. What a cool club.

Awesome work as always, Mr. Hippen. I especially love his toes.

So we've established now that the frog was wearing a neck tie, though it appears that Miss Mouse has had a positive effect on him. He's upgraded to the tie-on kind.

Wonderful designs and color. I love that Flippin' Hippen style!

Those are some tight-fitting pants... I'd like to see him get his feet through the upper-leg area. Yikes. I love the shape of him, Seth. You do amazing work.

Seth Hippen said...

He's a toon! He could fit his whole body through that upper-leg area if it were funny. And, boy, would that be funny.

It takes some great skill to make a mouse that hot. Froggy looks nervous, because he knows she's out of his league... and species. Very well done. I love both characters.

Dang, this is awesome!! Great work and design

Jedulous said...

yes, he is wearing a herringbone weave wool sport coat. now that's class. hahah. maybe if i pulled something like that, i could get a girl as fly as miss mousey. Oh, wait, i already do!

I wonder if the frog is worried about incompatable metabolisms? I mean, he'd have to always bask in the sun, and she might get bored and go find another newt or something.

Must be a first date, he's lookin' really nervous! Excellent character design and emoting Seth!

Well now you're just showing off. Wonderful addition to an already great post, Seth. I love the atmosphere of drawing #2. And that frog's got loads of attitude. Good thing Uncle Rat can put him in his place.

I've stated it elsewhere, but I had a chance to see Monster House this weekend and had a great time! Nice work!

Wow, Seth... another froggy! Just beautiful, sir! I love the eyes closed... he seems quite confident. And why wouldn't he be in a suit coat like that? He's looking most fancy. Very impressive, as always, Seth.

Love them both, I can hear "I was strolling throught the park one day" when I look at the new one

Great characters, as always, Seth :D

By the way, I saw Monster House in 3D on Friday, awesome movie! Great job!

One word... work horse! Okay two words. Seth you inspire me. Fantastic addition to what you'd already done before. Post more!
