Blue Cockchafer Beetle

Fyi, the 'ch' in 'chafer' is pronounced as 'sh.' Anyways, This was a fun if frustrating project. I wish I had drawn the bug smaller. And my original bug got cold and separated from the lucite, turning completely silver, which made drawing him in color very difficult. I got a new one that did not separate, but he wasn't blue.
