Crane Fly for CPS


This week's prompt for Cloth Paper Studio in the Be Prompt! challenge is FLY. So I decided to draw a crane fly. I discovered a lot of information about the Crane Fly, as well. I drew this with my Micron pens and colored it with Derwent Graphitint pencils and then used Niji water brushes to brighten the colors of the pencils.

Sioux, this is a beautifully intricate drawing!

Interesting that they're called Daddy Long Legs in England, since that's what I've grown up calling those awfully long-legged spiders...

I can't especially say I'm a fan of insects, but this one is very well drawn.

Nice bug Sioux! The wings are especially nice with the delicate shading.

Very nicely done! The graphitint pencils seem to be working very well with delicate drawings like this. Seems like they are not as strong as regular w/c pencils. Afterall the name "tint" is in the pencil!

I've been working on my homepage since very early this morning, and I created a page that is very dear to my heart http://mysite.verizon.net/vzeowz20/id9.html ...I think I may have found a way to express something and maybe reach out to someone that needs it, I've created a page dedicated to Domestic Abuse, I'm hoping that everyone here will view it and pass it along to the bloggers and addies on their lists. I will be posting it on today's blog entry as well, but I'd really like your help in passing it around, as it means so much to me...thank you....Carrie ("Thorn")
p.s. I apologize if I took too many "liberties" in posting this to your blog, but again...it's a message that I'd like to spread to the world!
