This dragonfly is perfect  for an on the job design but still with a colourful and wow effect. It’s elegant and funny at the same time.

Let’s get started!

As most of my designs, this one is great for "on the job." Cartoon animal designs are great way to go when we can't spend much time on detailing, and little kids even prefer them more then realistic ones

As a kid, I was fascinated with these magnificent little creatures and would run around trying to catch them which, luckily, wasn’t to difficult. This design attempts to capture their simple beauty and whimsical flight.
