Since Inktober is beginning I figured it was only appropriate to post the first in a series I’m working on. This beetle design started life as a client sketch that was turned down a few years ago. I came across the original sketch recently and decided to work it up to completion. It’s borrowing a little from steampunk mechinations and a little from teacup detailing but is pushed no where near as far as I’m planning for the next few installments. This is going to be fun.
