Totally adorable. Great detail on the "face" and bringing those guts out through the flesh.

Wow love all the textures juxtaposed with smooth coloring! I'm really enjoying all the details and the larva's pose. :)

Question: 
Someone has already asked what medium, but I'd like to know with what method you used colored pencil and gouache together.Did you sketch with colored pencil, paint, then add details with colored pencil? Also there are some amazing thin details in the bark--did you render that with just a super sharp colored pencil?

I'm going to be immature and say ewwwww...
But this is actually really nicely done, especially if you're not as squeamish as me.

I hate larvas and maggots, but this work is amazing.
