Goliath Beetle

Still revisiting the stuff from London. When I have 5 minutes. This is me trying to remember how the Goliath Beetle looked like.

    1. Actually, goliath beetles are old friends http://louislearnstodraw.blogspot.ch/2013/01/insects.html ..

      In fact this part of the goal in 2014: create a visual library. I think it's more manageable than "get better at drawing"

      Here is a list of the thing I would like to know how to draw from memory,

      Hard surface

      Classic cars (1910, 1920, 1930)
      Steam locomotives (1900, 1940)
      Heavy machinery (tractor, bagger, excavator, truck)
      Planes (WW1, WW2)

      Soft surface
      Arthropods (beetle, grasshoper
      Marine biology (shark, ..)
      Mammals (...)
      Birds (...)

      ...

      Haha, I will never make it. Maybe I should restrict the list and have only one thing per week.
