I finally finished my cockroach illustration off today, yey.
I started it last year but half way in I took a brake hehehe. The pencil work was intense…
Here is the photograph I used for reference - www.flickr.com/photos/jodilynn/272936838/
I only used coloured pencils for my cockroach, which I think worked out well for the textures. And I think it’s best if you view on white and larger to see all the detail : )
I’m really proud of this illustration. Maybe because I spent so many hours on it and it’s always great to see hard work pay off. And I like how it is ‘scientifically correct’ hehehe.
Here is some info on these cockroaches - en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Madagascar_hissing_cockroach
Ps./ I think it looks better on paper…and I couldn’t wait to show you guys and took a quick photograph of it. Woo!!
Please, let me know what you think.
