I'll start adding the frog photos I tweaked...
Do you want the original, the one from Equill and the finished or *skip* the original and go with Equills and the finished production alone?

The following will be printed in pairs showing two per page as follows, one above the other in a horizontally folded booklet.
If there are any errors PLEASE inform me.

This was the most easily tweaked, needing but a few lines drawn in around the toes and eyes.

I paired him off with another *sticky toed* type.

HINT: Once you have them enlarged, flip them from previous to next, previous to next to easily see the adjustments.

Dapjwys toad....
~cooked or cropped photos - post here!-original-dapjwys-toad_037b.jpg~cooked or cropped photos - post here!-original-dapjwys-toad_037b-copy-copy.jpg
Placed into a horizontal setting and his posterior drawn in.
Most of the background was removed as it had the appearance of ink smears in the trial run.

Dapjwys *toad-ling* in the lower left.
I pursued this one a bit further and added a copy of the *cleaned up completed toad * to fit the lower right hand corner.
Appearing too cleaned up, I added a bit more to its background.

There....All finished!

The life cycles proved to be the most challenging, all needing adjustments to equal size and tones prior to composition.

Leopards appear pretty similar to the Pickerels so I chose this duo to break things up a bit.

Turttles Pickerel...

The second version used up a lot of ink for nothing so it's background was eliminated.

The frogs life cycle lacked a LOT in their clarity and took quite the time to make adjustments.

I can't believe I'm saying this...since I'm really glad we've had a warm, mild, nearly snow-less winter...but...I wouldn't mind seeing a snow like that here...and get some pictures too.

Very nice, Sage...makes me miss the beauty of winter if not the cold temps, darkness, and driving conditions. BTW, we didn't get any snow here despite what I thought.

Havalotta, I'm so glad that you cleaned them up...I was hoping to find time to do it for you--the old-fashioned way, but never got around to it.

They are much more "colorbook-like" now. Great job!
