Nice La_Jolla1! Very buggy, I started working my way into a dozen or more (pending how the rest of the evening goes) sulphur thorax duns in size 18.

The lighting sucks and doesn't show it but I found a way to get a neat effect with the abdomen by tying in a length of yellow floss dub directly to it wrapping the body. Its just a very subtle bit of shimmer that will darken a bit when wet.
