I wanted to see how each reflection compared to the actual final image, and if I had a preference of either side when mirroring them. (Personally, I think I prefer the righthand side.)
The header image for this post is what it looks like when I layer one mirrored, symmetrical version of the beetle over the other – I wanted to see how closely they aligned. As you can see, I have some practice to do, though a large part of me loves the current result for suggesting an insect’s scuttle.
My illustration “Black to Gold” seems designed to be mirrored! Check out some of the results I got using a mirroring app:
