The Circle of Life….

Admit it, you’re singing the song in your head right now… Well, I am anyway. I have been listening to this cicada for days and was kind of sad to find her (him?) on my driveway. Dead. But she/he seems to have died of natural causes, so that’s good. Nothing violent.

Just a quick simple sketch. The green highlights on the wings were more luminescent than this, and quite surprising. That raised x on the back was a surprise, too.  I used a new (cheap! But fun!) paint set for this, which I will reveal in a day or two!

Is it weird to paint dead bugs? It didn’t seem weird at the time but now that I’m posting it, seems a bit creepy.
