Beetles from the Bone Room

One year on my birthday, I received a box of beautiful metallic beetle specimens encased in lucite, ordered from the Bone Room. (My family is the best!) I love rendering metallic surfaces, so I selected five of the shiniest beetles and drew them in colored pencil, then transferred the drawings to the computer and added details in digitally.
