Yes. Yes, I do say.
This is the newest addition to the Aurora Wings Sprite family.
Say hello to Horned Beetle Sprite.
Isn't he a spunky little dude?
I colored him with Copics and tried to keep him colored closely
to an actual Japanese Horned Beetle. I love the ones that are a deep
mahogany color with bright red highlights. I tried to accomplish this
effect using E29 and R39, 46, and 35.
While looking up reference photos I noticed that quite a few of
these beetles have this gorgeous orange-yellow furry underside.
That explains my golden hued color choices for his face, body,
and pantaloons. I just love how he looks ready to rumble.
Thanks for dropping by today.
Be sure to stop by the Aurora Wings Showcase blog to gaze
upon all the amazing samples for this image, and the other newbie.
Both of which are available today in the Aurora Wings etsy shop.
