Can you tell what this even is?
« on: November 17, 2010, 03:39:02 pm »

So for my latest fortress, I have a big ugly wall on my gatehouse. UNACCEPTABLE! It needs a picture, And what better then this!

Spoiler (click to show/hide)

Er wait, What is that. I'm hoping most people can see it's a toad, If they can I'll probably just use it, If not, Any ideas how to make it better?
My ideal canvas size is 15x15, But I can go up to 17x17 if I need to. Yes, I realize I'm limiting myself horribly with that

Also if you can't see it, This should help!

My first thought, before reading the text saying it's a toad, was a frog. Maybe make it slightly browner, if it's a toad?

That's a great idea, I could probably even edit the stone-sense colors so it comes out right
Though you said 'Frog' instead of 'Big blob of green' so I'm totally happy regardless :p

It doesn't help that you've chosen a perspective view with no inner definition - try adding a hint of a line where the frog's neck-slope joins with the body. And yeah, at this resolution, it could be a crouching green man, a green axe with a gem, a... You get the idea. I thought frog too, simply because of where we are.

I tried to add some lines and stuff, But on a grid this size it always sorta looks wonky to me. Then again so does the green blob, So go figure

Looks good, but could use some defining lines.

Looked like a frog to me.

Of course, it looked like a cute frog to me, so my Sight might be a little overkill on this one.

Recolored in a more brownish color, And tried to add some defining lines, I'm not really sure if it's better though

The first picture was immediately identifiable as a frog.  This new one not so much.

Guess I'll stick with that one then, It seems most people can see it's some form of amphibian and that's good enough for me, Thanks everyone :D

Until I knew it was a frog, it was just a featureless blob.
