Common Walking Leaf Frog Sketch & Drawing

I was looking for some inspiration for a drawing - I hadn't drawn for some time - and I fell upon this amazing black and white picture of a Burmeister's Frog (Phyllomedusa burmeisteri) in a book from 1967 titled Larousse Encyclopedia of Animal Life. I was mesmerized by the shape of the frog and its contrast with the trunk on which it was standing, and how the shadows were creating a strong dramatic impact.

I haven’t posted anything in almost a year… I was too busy mulling over my art projects and how I wanted to pursue them! In any case, I find myself often over-indulging in details when drawing. I never know when to stop.
