Grasshopper, Colored pencils on Dura-lar film

This week’s class assignment is to draw an insect. Our teacher handed out bugs in class encased in acrylic. I had a cool red-spotted bug but chose to draw a grasshopper I had (also in acrylic) because of a follow-up project I’d like to do with it.

The drawing measures about 10 inches. The cool thing about drawing on film is you can also draw on the back to enhance the color and sharpness of the edges, which is great!
