I believe this was a very successful piece. Though at first I tried to use a dragon, it ended up not looking realistic at all, so I went with a simple frog. After that, I already knew exactly how to make it work, so it came together fairly easily. The most difficult part had to have been using the clone-stamp tool to make the frog look like the tongue. If I were to redo this project, I would take a little more time in making the frog match the tongue exactly.
Through this project I learned how to use the clone-stamp tool, now one of my most-used tools in Photoshop.
