Thank You
Thanks guys!
I wasn't sure if you could post drawings on this site
but know one asked me to delete it so that's good news. :)
I used coloured pencils, markers and an extra fine tip sketcher's pen
It took a lot of work but the end result came out the way i liked it!
The other monarch picture where you see it's face,is the reference that that was used for the drawing. I put him in a special insect cage and drew away. It was fun.
Thanks again!! :))

Moved from ID Request.

Beautifully done!

Just an additional drawing to my find...

What medium do you use? It looks terrific!
