I love this design a lot. The colors are very please to see, especially the green moss on the frogs' "uniforms". The round, white bellies of the frogs stand out from their robes or "uniforms". I also like their "uniforms". They are worn and torn that are fit very well with the frogs' skins. These create the tension of the scene.
