Why I've drawn a grasshopper I have no idea. I found a photo of one - a painted grasshopper its called, that was quite amazing. And as I drew it, I was amazed at the detail and construction of the insect. They make you wonder where the concept for armour plating came from originally.
Now I'm not an insect fan by any stretch of the imagination. I'm the person who will flee from dragonflies, craneflies, bumblebees and horror of horror - moths. So I have to say that drawing this - while it didn't creep me out enormously, it didn't because I found the structure so interesting.
It really is true that you don't really see something until you draw it.
