Delightful. Ok, the story. I flew US Army helicopters back in the 70's [link] . Ever since then dragonflies have been "helicopter bugs" for me (especially when they hover). And here you've gone and made it a jet! I suppose they could be twin turbines to drive the wings; then it would be a "turbine-powered helicopter bug".
LOL this is really good, and has such a strong sense of humour to it.
What makes this particularly funny is not only the jetpack (on an already flight-capable insect ) but the fact that it's moving or facing away; this is a very subtle thing to notice, but it adds so much to the very funny effect.
And I 'Ooh' and 'Ahh' at the minimalism of this, I love that style and this is just about the simplest picture I have seen in a while; and yet, contradicting that there are the dragonfly's unnnnnnbelievably detailed wings!
And once again, you maniac, you have managed to create the mecha-organic hybrid! I salute you and your almighty skill!
I'd try to comment. I'd try to crit, but I can't find anything that needs improvement. You deserve a +fav, because of the shear amount of work that went into this. You deserve a +fav for the concept. You deserve a +fav for the detail and the typography. Okay, enough schmoozing. Take the +fav, already!
That is just BLOODY amazing.
And Illustrator too... Very well pulled off.
I myself am a perfectionist and I cringe at the thought of doing all those uncanny, friggin little lines.
I love how intricate and delicate it looks. So beautifully fragile.
This is just B L O O D Y amazing.
