It's very good.

What I found when I first tried working with colours rather than just graphite pencil was that I left my shades very light. Look for the darks in your pictures and use lots of strong colour.

I agree with Alan, you need stronger shadowing but your overall drawing of the frog in wonderful just get some darker color in there and it will be a masterpiece [smile]

I just went back and reviewed the frog tutorial along with the photo reference to refresh my memory.  You did a terrific job, makes me want to give this drawing a try.
