Atlas by KaiserFlames Atlas by KaiserFlames
The Atlas Beetle! This is one of the coolest beetles I have ever seen. This was a project for school where the entire illustration department was "hired" by a local museum to do trading card illustrations to go along with their insect exhibit this January.

I enjoyed this a lot, and took the opportunity to break off from digital art for a moment and go back to good ol' traditional stuff.

This took about 4 or 5 hours, done on grey Canson paper with colored pencils and a black marker.

Enjoy!

Just awasome....

This is such a clever picture! I love that you're playing off the myth of the titan Atlas. The illustration is fantastic too. I wish I could wield a pencil that way! OuO

Totally AWESOME. Atlas beetles are fantastic critters, and make fascinating subjects to draw. You did a great job here, and I like the fact that you went with the "Atlas holding the world" myth with the beetle.

Holy shitballs I think this is the coolest thing you've ever done D:

Don't leave this lying around the house, because it may go missing <.<

Lol. Sadly we've had people stealing stuff here at PCA&D, so i can't even hang it up in the hallway here or it may ACTUALLY go missing. I'm going to have to do a print of it if the teachers want to hang it up.

That's terrible :(

Well, I think that this is awesome, and you should do more beetles, like two stags beating the shit out of each other >:3

Beetles, after all, are the dragons of the insect world ;p

Haha. Beetles are awesome. When we were told about this project I did that weird hand-flappy-of-excitement thing I do.

Yeah. They encouraged plays on the names of the insects we chose.
