Rhinoceros Beetle Stamp.

I have carved several beetles before now, but they have always been seen from above as it were, so this side view  is new to me and a little more difficult to carve I think. My original drawing of the Rhinoceros beetle is on the left, and the new stamp, mounted on a piece of Perspex is to the right, and I think that the best image from the stamp is the lower right version. I seem to have misplaced my black ink pad, so I printed this one in a darkish grey, I don't think that it shows the beetle off very well though.
