For an art project at school.
Done in Pencil.


This is a great pencil drawing of a mantis. Nice work on the attention to detail. The shadding makes the background look better. The only way this could be better is by using color.

Nice work

So first off I would like to say that I found this pretty interesting it was differant and has a unique feel to it, so I was glad to have found this, I like your style here its a good piece, and kinda jumped out at me. but thats what made this all the more interesting. A nice piece of drawing here, the Praying mantis is a scary outside insect of sorts and was scared of them as a kid, so good drawing you did it to its exact detail. Now i was really liking the work you put out here today it was something that put some nice effects and elements together, so it was a good piece of art, And i do look forward to more of your work here soon enough. there are some things that could have a more Polish to it.

And there it is anawsome creation that shows the efforts, and I wouldnt mind seeing a tad more improvment points as its never a dull time for improvments even just the little ones, I would also Find it very Helpful with more options. so here are a few improvment options and choices to chose from. Wouldnt mind seeing more of a shine on the eye globes but it being in pencil may hold back on that.
