This is Dot, the male ladybug from my older Ogga the Cane Toad cartoon strips. There was also a male ladybug in the CGI film A Bugs Life but I used the idea about 4 years before that in 1994.

I drew this in pencil first then scanned it in. I opened it in Photoshop and added simple coloured shapes. I added highlights and shadows to the coloured areas with the airbrush tool. The background is a simple blend.
