  • Title: Hemiptera Homoptera Cicadidae
  • Artist: ~Dameon Grey~
  • Description: This is a quick sketch I did two semesters ago in charcoal pencil. It was during my Entomology class (study of insects) I find Cicadas SO interesting. It even looks like their wings are upside down, doesn't it?

    It's supposed to be quick, I like that quick sketch look when it comes to insects, I guess it gives me a sense of field work, it's comforting.

    I would love to turn this into an oil painting, so if anyone has any constructive criticism, that'd make me smile. ^w^

  • I never saw anyone draw a bug and submit it. This makes me happy because i love bugs. Cicadas are annoying but i still like them. It's a splendid sketch.

  • I found the reference image and decided to put that up, but Gaia squishes it down horizontally, oh well. I'm only used to the ones in our entomology class... the um, dead ones sweatdrop so maybe the ones found here are different. But I remember their eyes being really.... round. I do have to do this over again so I'll go all out next time, thanks for your input.

  • Them things are all over Oklahoma and can be anoying at times. Now let's see...I've caught these suckers and know every inch of em'. The wings need to be longer, slightly longer than the bug itself, that and they need to be a little wider at the middle-end. The eyes are not supposed to be that round, they're like small beans not peas. The abdomen should be a little longer and the end needs to curve up more I'd continue but I can't go over 500 characters. PM me for more. 3/5
