My third ACEO in my "30 Bugs in 30 Days" series is complete! A grasshopper, based on a combination of colors from my imagination and somewhat based on real photos.
He's standard ACEO size and created in black ink and colored pencils. It's been a really long time since I drew anything cartoony like this- and by "cartoony" I just mean with the black outlines and no gradients/shading within the piece. There is a little shading on a couple of the grasshopper parts, but I wanted to keep that to a minimum and keep this one as simple as possible, just to do something different than I normally do.
Thanks for the recommendation of a grasshopper from my friend pixy0stix on Twitter!
