My entry for the NJC #93: JC Rocks!
Frog sounds like rock, so that's how I got the idea to make a rocking Kermit the Frog. The parts for the body were easily found, I based that look on some iconic rock stars/bands from the 80's: Bruce Springsteen, Aerosmith and Metallica.
The head was a more difficult part, I just couldn't decide whether to search for some frog toy or sculpt one from scratch. As you can see I ended up with a sort of frog toy, though it's a toad head. Removed the warts, the original eyes and replaced the eyes with half beads from the crafts store.
At first I wanted to make that "rock hand" from a Hydro Viper, but Spiderman's web-spinning hand made things a lot easier. I just had to modify the thumb.
Guitar and mic are from a Playmobil figure. They're the right size for this figure.
Almost all rock stars have tattoos, so I made one clearly relating to Miss Piggy.
