Fine art illustration of an Emerald Glass Frog (Centrolene prosoblepon.) The illustration is available in black and white or color.
The Emerald Glass Frog was completed on 9.3.2010. It is my 400th full color illustration. For number 400 I wanted to pick a subject that reflected my library of animal images as a whole. I decided on the tropical rainforest gem this frog is appropriately called. Getting the angle right, so that you can actually see the amphibians internal organs was critical, and the talented wildlife photographer Luis A. Bonachea was kind enough to allow me to use his excellent photo as a reference. I added this frog to a collection of animals I find to be as amazing as anything from another planet imagined by sci-fi writers.
