Frogs drink water, and breathe half their air, through their skin

Frogs drink water, and breathe half their air, through their skin. They breathe the other half through their nostrils. 

I first draw the border in with a Micron 008, using a plastic template. Then, using a reference image, I draw the animal’s contour outlines in Tombow Calligraphy Pen. Then I use hatching with a Micron 005 to create the value/shading. With the animal completed, I fill in the background with a Posca paint pen. I make sure to leave a thin white border around the animal, and to leave some white streaks to give it texture. Finally, I use the Micron 08 to do the lettering. In this drawing, added a bit more color at the end: yellow ochre Copic marker for her eyes, and green Posca polka dots in FROGS and SKIN. 6”x6”.
