Fine art illustration of a Hercules Beetle (Dynastes hercules.) The illustration is available in black and white or color.
I did a series of five beetles in 2005. The line art version was completed that year, but the digital tinting wasn’t added until 2008. When putting together this series, I tried to find the most interesting and beautiful of the order Coleoptera. I picked one to be the Hercules Beetle as it was one of the more well known of the rhinoceros beetles and the massive ‘horn’ was so distinctive.
