Two out of three sittings. The background blue and green are going to get more depth. Done by the great Nathan Kostechko. Scarabs have amazing symbolism and meaning from egyptian times. This was done freehand referencing a Rick Griffin poster for Jimi Hendrix. Better pics and a finished product coming in october, LA trips ain't cheep.
