Techniques for preparing and observing insects for subsequent illustration. Traditional illustration techniques using the drawing tube and ocular grid on the microscope, including pencil sketching and pen and ink line drawing. Other “traditional” rendering methods will include line and ink, stippling, cross-hatching, color illustration. Major emphasis will be in computer-assisted techniques of scientific illustration using Adobe Illustrator and Adobe Photoshop, including instruction on preparing full body, true-to-life, color illustrations of insects on the computer.
