Bringing a new high to truth in advertising, this little guy is just what he says on the tin. Based on the Coccinella septempunctata seven-spot pattern, Ladybug is leaning more towards ‘artistic license’ rather than ‘realistic’… but you have to admit he’s cute!

As you can tell by the photos, this guy was one of my later horses. I’m not quite sure why I decided to paint him thusly, but I do remember spending a lot of time hopping around Wikipedia trying to find the perfect ladybug pattern.

Who knew painting silly-colored horses took so much research?
