Hey Sam,

I have to agree with other people. The wings are still not right.

They don't seem to have function, but are just extruded from the body. Simon said most of what is needed I feel in that area. As for some other comments about the wings I think they need some veins, an additional support similar to a bats wing as well maybe. But keeping in style with your look, perhaps just some thick veins is all it needs in there to add the look I'm thinking of.

Again going to agree with Glen, in the post above and say that the back legs should have a bit more bulk to them.

I think the eyes needs some extra veins with a small bump added to it to enhance them a little.

I'm guessing hes rigged already as you have him in different poses in the shots. Is it going to be realistic or more of a cartoon style? I would advise Google and You Tube for as much reference as you can get.

nice frog!

yeah perhaps make the skeleton on the wings a bit more bony, or bring out the feature just a bit more to ease off the artificial look. You can still easily change the shape of the wing using blendshape so no worries.

is that the car shader you are using in the layered texture :P ? Yeah nothing wrong with it really, looks great. You can also add another blinn layer on top of the stack, with full transparency and fractal as the specular color. Gives you that 'wet orange' kinda look - works great on organic objects.

rigging a wing and animating it can be tricky, i suggest get some rer of anatomy of a bats wing for ref for joints and skeleton structure.
but cool concept.

have you considered making the rear legs larger to give it more power to jump?
