Cicada’s buzz is
not buzz. it is summer symphony or rain shower in woods.
17th haiku poet, made famous one, going like
‘Silence, Cicada’s voice,
Sorbed into rocks’ <- make sense?
Body: Use the brush body so that you can get vague gradation naturally. It gives the cicada body color.
Eyes: The eyes of cicada is located on the edge of the body (or face). Make it the most black sumi ink.
Wings: Each cicada has different color wing. Some has dark brown one and some has trasparent one. I like to depict very soft thin wing here. Put very light sumi ink on the brush and draw softly.
Legs: black and thin
Cicada lives only seven days after the emergence. Before that it keeps sleeping seven years in the earth. wow
