Thank you so much for sharing this piece of art. I am not an artist, so cannot comment on the very evident talent needed to draw this. However, of all your work I have found these illustrations breath-taking in their detail and cannot believe you are not working as a book illustrator. You have managed to make this grasshopper a thing of beauty and this can be difficult with insects that remain slightly prehistoric in looks. Have thoroughly enjoyed viewing your art and thanks again. Simon
thank you dear Simon for such deep appreciating of my art! i'm glad that people like you surround me and inspire me for new pieces with support! i'm studying now in wellknown Moscow Stste University of Art Printing at the faculty of Graphic Arts so my skill in drawing and illustrating growing better and better. I do all i can to get job to get experience. but it's so hard in our country for young artist to get one. Sorry for my frank speaking. The job is my sore point ) Thank you one more time! I will do my best to rejoice myself and people around me!! Yours sencierly Alice.
This is very well done. I love the colors and lettering in this. I like how the green fades into the brown and doesn't just stay in the grasshopper (happy accident?) . Also, I like the idea of an uneven plate. The little nicks and dings on the edges of the image really give this a lot of character that goes very well with the colors and words.
