That's One Tough Bedbug...

Supposedly the bedbug population is on the rise in the U.S. That's nasty. As if there isn't already enough to worry about, now we have to add blood-sucking bugs in our beds to the list.

Doesn't it seem like pretty much everything on this planet is trying to kill us? Animals, plants, even the stinkin' weather. Someone's trying to tell us something.

His beard stubble gave me a lot of trouble. When I first sketched him out, he had stubble consisting of spines very much like those on his back. However, sometimes what works fine in a rough sketch doesn't work in the final drawing. The spiny beard just cluttered things too much, IMO, so I scrapped that plan and tried a different approach. You can decide for yourself which version looks best.

Drawn in Photoshop on the graphic tablet.

Here's the original sketch with the troublesome beard.
