How did you make this work:
I started the project by studying the anatomical structures from grasshopper dissection in the laboratory class, which aims to create accurate artwork from a real specimen. I use the watercolor combining with color pencils to create the main image of the grasshopper. The layout design and other schematic elements, such as the head and food pathway, are created using the Adobe Illustrator program.
