- Gather 3 different references from insects.
- Draw each reference as you see it with simplified manipulated forms.
- Rotate each reference 2 times in a different angle (for a total of 9 drawings).
Just FYI, that insect is a fly pretending to be a wasp :)
I am posting the last 3 right after I post this.
Hello everyone, first insect assignment
Hi, I’m still working on breakdown and doing angles out of my comfort zone.
that is not a bee xD
This was super fun! Really. I treat myself to draw a Kung Fu Mantis, after the hard work drawing all the insects. I can see the improvement from the reptiles, but still, there is a lot space to improve. :)
Nice! You can show more construction if you would use more primitive forms. Take a look at the mantis for example; right now you have 1 shape with contours for the arm. But you can use 2 or 3 seperate cylinders to construct that same arm and it would be more clear to read. Avoid copying the reference by drawing the 2d shapes that you see.
