This past weekend was actually feeling like spring here in Minneapolis. That led to a little late night inspiration on Sunday night. And daylight savings always messes up my sleep schedule, so I stayed up working. Here are a few finals for a nature/bug series. I had worked on the bee and flower previously without any background. Needed a bit more depth, so I scanned in some faux fur, cardboard and used the textures for some backgrounds and skies. Also pulled in an old star pattern I’d worked on from 2007 and used that for one idea. There are a few more ideas for this series I’m working on. I think they’ll be a bit darker in color and help to balance out the lady bug with these brighter ones. Hope to add them soon, at least before the baseball season starts.
