Fresh from the drawing table... Frog (Giant)!

I have for you today another drawing that is fresh from the drawing table. This time around it is a Frog and in parenthesis... GIANT! While 'F' didn't offer a lot of options (granted, more then some of the letters to come) it did offer up a critter that I can have some fun with and flex my monster muscles... a massive froggy.

Yes, I know it feels more like a toad then a frog but toads are just more monstrous to me so this Frog (Giant) has a lot of toad features. I do not expect fleeing peasents to correctly identity to massive creature that just ate half their village. The subtle differences of a giant frog and and giant toad can be so easily lost when running for your life. When I got to work on this I instantly thought of him living in a broken down tower with his butt backed up against the wall. Our tree frogs do something very similar when sitting on plants in the yard.
