Illustration Friday: insect

I did a couple of insect drawings I recently did - one is blind and another is with my eyes dashing back and forth - I am sure you can see which is which :)

Nice linework in either case. Good job.

Cool illos. The top one looks like a bug someone stepped on.
love

Great drawing .... I like the second one as it is perfect!

Veru well done. Both are interesting for different reasons. The top is a nice simple line style and the bottom a very good rendering and realistic.

These are both cool! The top one is a gesture of an insect and the bottom one has great detail.

I am glad I posted both of them! :)

I love them both, but the upper one, in my opinion, looks more stylistic. It's kind of like an oriental styled piece. Very nice job, in both cases.

These are both very nice. The top looks more like a contour maybe even a blind contour. The bottom one is great the optical tone is beautiful your cross hatching and detail is perfect. Also very nice size. The only thing is the composition is a little boring and there is to much negative space. Though I do realize that your focus was only on the bug. It might make the drawing more interisting if there were som backgrond or even some cast shadowing.

thanks, artsygl;

these are indeed a blind contour and a more detailed drawing. I agree with your comment on composition - it definitely can be improved!

Great illustration. Do you mind if I link to it from my blog http://dougsbugblog.blogspot.com/. Maybe I'll make a model based on your drawing. : )
