Frog grendel (Click to enlarge)
Frog grendel   Art   Missmysterics | 3/12/2017  log in to like post  3

This was inspired by conversation about potential grendel breeds that happened...quite a long time ago, as such it isn't my idea but I don't remember who's. They described a grendel breed that was placid but highly toxic to norns.

The spots are loosely inspired by the blue poison dart frog.
Feel free to use for inspiration for sprites.

I'd want fire-engine red, myself. Great concept!

I totally agree about green rather than blue. It can be genetically coloured later and they surely don't necessarily have to represent blue poison dart frogs specifically (which are a single breed in a highly diverse species may I add). That's just kind of what first came to mind for striking markings. I do think people tend to forget about genetic colouring a bit when it comes to making sprited breeds.

I kind of had Creatures 1 and Creatures 2 in mind with the design, but mostly because their designs were closer to what I was trying to achieve, a tail would probably be in order for Creatures 3/DS, which is where they'd most likely end up.

I don't think the "face" command which could be used to generate it's toxicity is present in Creatures 1 or Creatures 2.

Very cute! The smooth skin and friendlier looks brings my mind back to the C1 grendels :)

I think it's a pretty smart fuse of frog features, they're subtle and thus you keep the impression of a grendel. I personally favor the ones with regular ears over the ones with frills; the frills sort of give a feel of "Creature-from-the-black-lagoon" instead of amphibian.

An amusing detail could be that the babies has tadpole tails, and possibly letting the adults have a small tail in order to make them fit better with grendel breeds.

A colorful breed with black markings would be a lot of fun to hue swap. I think it would be a good choice to actually make the sprites green & black, making them fit the other breeds better. Then ones could create genetics that hue swap the colors instead.

A butterfly, it's a bit unclear I'll admit.
