This can be considered as a 2nd part of http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...d.php?t=206500 ...I'm posting this time to ask again for your observations and critic over a couple more sc. illustration works I did this year.
Once again, the butterflies were done with a mixed water-based technique, from both good quality pictures and borrowed dried specimens; the corions (egg/embryo coverture) were done with pencil on paper (photoshop re-touched), based on observations and photos from the microscope and aditional provided data, mostly about the axes and ribs count for each species, as well as their measures; sometimes the scale wasn't correctly calibrated, wich later made a pain in the ass to correct the numbers. The koalas and wild cats were done just with watercolour: no acrylic/solid colour was put on these, but only transparent layers with very fine brush strokes; the wild cats were done from pictures, data and corrections provided by the specialist; the koalas were commissioned as a surpise gift for someone else, so I had to make the research by myself (haven't heard any more news of how did it went).
Might post some non sc. works sometime soon.
Thanks in advance for you time.
...PLUS: some pics of surely the most valuable specimen of my own collection: Ornithoptera paradisea arfakensis ♂ (Indonesia) VII-2009
Thanks for watching.
