Rolling Along - Kingdom Death Dung Beetle Knight

A quick one today-- another version of the gold Dung Beetle Knight color scheme I tried before, this time a bit more stylized. I think I got the glossy effect on the carapace and the wings looking particularly interesting this time.

The gloss gets into some effects I haven't done a lot recently, where in order to get the right effect, you need to go against instinct with coloring to the form, and instead just stipple it like there's no texture there and it's a flat painting, which makes a less-regular, more natural looking gloss that compliments the form rather than following it.
