Insect


In the spring of '04, Cicada invasions were everywhere -- hitting windshields, knocking folks off their mopeds, and fighting frantically like these three before the attack on humans were over.

Smooth line-work! Compositionally cativating piece that draws my eye in and through...a treat to my soul, as atop of each leaf and under each wing, there is something new to discover and learn from. Awesome!

Yummy insects. I love the detail, the fun anthropomorphism, and the digital work. Depth of field?

I am absolutely captivated, mesmirized, and enthralled with your use of line... I can actually feel the prickly appendages of each cicada as they crawl about in the deep recesses of my thought! Mmmm... I remember those bugs well!

OMG don't remind me of those things!!! LOL We had them in 98 or 99 when I lived in PA. They are very annoying to someone who walks everywhere! LOL

Great rendering though! Fantastic!

I remember this! I watched you draw it. I never finished my cicada drawing, but I might finish it for this week's theme. I'm changing directions with art right now, so I'm busy learning new mediums. Either way, I'll be making art. YAY

hey wertz, thanks for the comment and i agree, not the most effort. but about yours, i love that push pin,. It is like the others are rescuing him like EMTs and the pin is the only thing keeping the paralyzed body from falling.

I remember when we all started sketching those crazy cicadas in your drawing class. The pencil work that you captured is awesome, and i love the controposto feel of the bugs.
