    Another from the insect series from the ABC magazine. Designed by Michal Dudas. All touch-ups done with pastel chalks, and a few light coats of "Future" to seal and blend in the colors.

    Truly outstanding! The base really adds to the piece. So realistic it looks like it's ready to walk off onto the table. Kudos

    That is pretty sharp.

    If you tell me that the entire base is paper, I'm going to curl up in the corner and snivel for a goodly amount of time though... ;-)

    I thought it was real for a second there! It's the gloss. . .it makes the thing look like a real beatle!

    The Future's With Future!

    Are you telling me those "rocks" and "moss" are actually paper!?! Can't be...:twisted:

    Very nice work and kudos to Michal Dudas as well!8)

    I love these paper insects! What is the ABC magazine? I've not heard of it. Thanks for the great pics!
