Okay ... once again, very nice job ... but not "realistic".
I am no expert on realistics, but I am thinking you need to "slow down". Figure out how to make one bug that would fool an entomologist. Then move on to the next bug.
Your attempts look good, no doubt about it. But compare them to the REAL looking bugs on this forum and you'll see where you're lacking.
Barbed hooks rule!
My definition of work: Doing something in which effort exceeds gain.
