step by step mediocrity

the general concept:
the "cicada killer" wasp


the preliminary drawing, cicada added.
(both animals caught in our backyard)


inked


color added, except the blue:
every blue pencil i bought for this project was broken inside. 
i wasn't sure about adding blue anyway


final
the wasp and cicada stand out better without the blue i think,
but overall it seems kind of bland and unfinished.
not a total failure, but appropriately inadequate.
whatever
live and learn

Yeah, that's exactly what I was thinking. . . just totally inadequate. You've got issues young man.

not only bland and unfinished but shallow and pedantic, young man.

inadequate, bland, shallow, that i can take; but pedantic - that cuts deep

shit is crazy. three people have asked to buy this piece! it looks like a half-decent school project to me, but maybe it's actually FINE ART.

whatever

live and learn
