Two more studies on the same subject of the previous post, I hope I'm getting a bit closer to my idea.

The frog-like eyes don't work, they look fake. I have to find better ways to express their amphibian nature.

It's not a very productive period, anyway I have something left to show. She's a new creature from popular myth, taken from Dino Coltro's book Gnomi, anguane e basilischi, she's called anguana, and she's quite like a nymph mixed with a snake or an amphibian.
Anguanas live in the wood's waters, but sometimes marry men and have babies. They are good wives, but they will leave their families if their husbands make some sharp remark on their bodies; however, they will secretly keep on taking care of their babies.
Also, anguanas are known to do the washing perfectly in the rivers.

Here are some preliminary studies, and a more focused attempt.

I'm not really happy with these trials, I hope to make something more appealing sooner or later.
