Notonecta glaucus

Notonecta glaucus - student project

I've seen this water bug on a night dive and got inspired to draw it.

Unfortunately I don't own a good uw-camera yet so I chose a photo from the Internet.

This is my first attempt at any kind of scientific illustration. 

Here's a short progress documentation:
