WIP - Insektarium
I am currently working on a new piece called Insektarium. It's actually my entry for Fashionpro's fashion illustration contest, though personally I don't think it's very ~fashionable. Since the judgment criterias lean more towards drawing technique, I don't worry much about the design (I just slapped Neoclassic outfit there oops). What I worry about is the deadline-- end of October. Hopefully I'd make it. I'm not going to include the dead insects pictured, though.
As you can see, lately I have this unhealthy obsession with insects, cockroaches and dragonflies in particular! A while ago I drew this in order to cure my fear against cockroaches, and now it has turned into an obsession. I don't know what to do, honestly.
Back to the current piece. I love it so far. Red is a bitch (I don't know what's wrong with red pigment but it's always so hard to manage in ANY kind of paint I've tried!), I'm still trying to make his coat look more velvet-y but maybe I need to add the finishing touch later. I still need to figure out what to do with the frame he's holding too, the ornaments will be pretty annoying to paint. I'm suicidal, I guess!
Alright then, gonna continue working. Perfect chance since my cats are all asleep and the weather is agreeable (it just rained so hard and now the air is so pleasant ♥). I'll be back later with the finished piece.
