I didn’t play around with the colours on these bugs, but I guess I should have to push myself a bit. I hope you like them anyway. They’re not my usual subject, so they took a while longer and I a lot of frustration.
A Beetle that looks a bit like an ant, made in watercolour on cardboard.
Lady Bug, started in watercolour and finished in oil pastels
Grasshopper made in watercolour on an acrylic background, finished with colour pencil.

Insects are incredibly complicated, so I’d say this is an excellent start! I like the ladybug 🙂
Thanks, I’ve got a few more interesting reference photos of insects, but I’m doing birds next. This time I’m replacing colors 🙂
Feel free to draw my budgies 😀
🙂 Might do that
Finished your prize btw, I’m just waiting to send it until I’ve finished the other one too.
