Chalcosoma atlas

Chalcosoma atlas - student project

From a pinned beetle that I think is an Atlas beetle. Drawn with Micron pens. I haven't figured out how to upload a photo that isn't in landscape orientation.

I went dark too fast in some areas, like the parts of the body and legs that look lighter in person because the wings overlap. I'm unsure about the transition between highlights and shadows. The light was coming from almost directly above the specimen. 

I'm going to try it again!
