Some quick bug studies based off of photos by buggirl. This is a reason I reblog so many little critters. I’m saving them for practice time! I’m still trying to get accustomed to drawing quickly and bug anatomy. The amount of bends in each leg is starting to slowly get ingrained in my brain.
EASILY my favorite commission from Califur. This couple was celebrating their anniversary and asked me to paint them as a mermaid and British soldier (similar to Pirates of the Caribbean). It was painted overnight and the couple had me package it so they couldn’t see the final painting until they got home together.
WAY TOO CUTE!
(If you’re ever interested in getting a painting done similar to this, please contact me for rates)
What a cute scene.
Wow, just look at how shiny the markings are.
Main body is done and needs stuffing. Something ripped in his neck when I was flipping it right side out. If the neck is a little too deformed I’ll be making a necklace of some sort to cover it up.
I love the pre stuffing stage since they never look like this when done. He will be getting wings and legs when the body is done since this is a body shape prototype.
The first innovative bicycle path in the Netherlands will be paved with light stones that will charge during the day and emit light during the evening. The path will run by the home that Vincent van Gogh lived in from 1883-5
This was a cool find. I was hanging out on a rock and thought “wow the dirt is moving!” Then I realized it was this masked hunter, the nymph of an assassin bug. These tiny hunters have sticky bodies so debris from the environment covers them making them blend in with their surroundings while they hunt bed bugs and the like!
What a clever baby.
