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!

My god, those beetles creep me out. Still cool, though. I like his glowing feet.

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
