Firefly (Photuris pennsylvanicus)

This is a model I've been working over off and on for years, finally getting it to the point where I like it. This is a few test renders before I start animating it for the next episode of Entomology Animated. Rendered in Redshift with some Yeti fur to create the fuzz. Almost all insects are hairy to some degree, you gotta have the hair on there to really make it look real. Yeti is the first hair system I've used that i actually enjoy. No they are not paying me to say that. anyways. yeah, so Fireflies! great way to celebrate the summer solstice!
