The latest version, with wing venation and some translucency to the wings. Moved and enlarged the text. Photoshop layers came in handy for wing coloration; the body and legs were colored brown/yellow (color layer 1), and then a new digital layer placed over that to color the wings in white-ish (color layer 2); made that entire layer 50% opacity so that the brown legs would show through. I wanted some of the white wing highlights to be completely opaque so I drew that in in yet another layer (color layer 3). Text has its own layer, as does the black outline, on top of all the color layers. Green background is the bottommost layer.
