4/52: Vodník

This one was requested by my dear friend Šata :)

Vodník is a slavic water demon. I think he is particularly popular in Czech Republik and Slovakia. We "had" him in Poland but I mainly recall him from imported Czech cartoons (which I loved!). He would also appear in fairytales. He does resemble a frog with his green skin and webbed fingers. Another possible inspiration was catfish. Both animals feature on the image and I must say I am very pleased with the catfish ;

This time I did flat colors in Photoshop. I think so far this type of coloring suits my illustrations best - or does it? Whatcha think?


  1. He's cool, especially like the frightened froggie in the water :-)

  2. the coloration seems good to me.
    And I love your creatures :)
