Here’s a quick post showing my progress on a cool black and white long-horned beetle called the Cottonwood Tree Borer.
I started with a sketch of different views at the size I wanted to make the beetle.
I made a cane for the patterned elytra (wing covers).
I used leftover clay to flesh out the body on top of the armature of wire and aluminum foil.
Then I worked on the head and baked it…enjoy!
