Hi,
Here is animation of Mike's beetle:

I know that light setup could be much better, but I'm still learning and
at the same time trying to save rendering time, as much as possible.

Very nice YB. The metallic materials work well in animation. I also like the
additional specular highlights in the eyeballs.

I just finished a more traditional looking scarab beetle. I'll post it when I'm
done with the materials. I'm modeling a fly now (I did a fairly crude one in POV
30 years ago).

Agree with you, although this is a simple turntable animation, it works
well for 3D models, one flat image is not sufficient for presenting a
complex shape.

I like highlights too, but it seems to me that ambient light is
insufficient.

I like this new entomology series and wonder how fast you are working.
Looking forward to new insects.
