I really think this guy looks like a toad, but I’m not sure why. I was just looking at pictures of toads, and they’re totally different from him: his eyes are much closer the human positions than the toad ones, his head is robot-square, and his body has a standard bipedal/humanoid form. His feet are webbed I guess but they could just as easily fit on a duck, modulo leg-diameter.
I wonder how far I can get from a toad, visually, and still elicit the “that’s a toad” feeling? And by what metric can I approximate the visual distance between an arbitrary drawing and a toad?
