Might not be the final version though …

I took the original photo of the three toads back in March, and was inspired by this great holiday hoppers by mikallakim.

Let me know what you think, there’s still time for improvement before Xmas πŸ˜‰

  1. lol Makes me happy that this silly image brings smiles πŸ™‚
    I know it’s still far from Christmas … and I wasn’t really in the mood yet, but I saw mikallakim‘s holiday hoppers by chance, and I immediately decided to try that on my toads. I’ll bring them back when time is ripe then.

  2. Nice, you are getting very good with that Gimp, the DoF on those trees is very good. The whole image is really good and doesn’t look too cartoony.
    Merry grumpy Christmas.

  3. If none of your relatives will be offended bu toads having group Sex it’s cool.
    It would make ME smile for sure :D!
    And you did that in gimp?

  4. Thank you Neil πŸ™‚ My lessons with Bob Ross (do you know his painting technique ? I love watching his shows on TV) have proven useful: the further things are, the darker and smaller and less detailed πŸ™‚

    lol thank you Nicole. I guess I need to check the feeling of my relatives towards toads group sex then πŸ˜‰

    Thank you Martha πŸ™‚

    @.imelda: Actually, I didn’t have to touch the toads .. two of them were walking together, and I was taking their photo, when the third jumped on top of them. He was quickly quicked out though πŸ™‚

    Happily walking around .. and then .. Jumping out of nowhere ! .. and then .. Xmas Toads

  5. lol
    good one, now I see it — this definitely lifts the holiday spirit.
    Nothing wrong with their sour faces, we all look like that when we were standing in the huge department stores scratching our heads trying to figure out what to get for other people.

  6. lol — I see what you mean Ailing .. I will soon need to do that chore by the way πŸ˜€

    Thank you, erglantz πŸ™‚ — Ohoh .. now I wonder if I can find other animals in my photos, that I could turn into Christmas cards πŸ˜€

    Thank you Kerry ! I’m impressed by your memory too !

  7. The three stooges, with Christmas caps!

    I did something similar with a sculpture in our front garden. If we every get some snow on the ground, I will snap a shot. As an introduction, the cap I used is one of one dozen, purchased for use on the 12 plastic pink flamingos Kenny doesn’t allow me to take out of the shed any longer… More on that soon! πŸ™‚
