Another one for the palette challenge on Tumblr. I really miss painting! But I'm going to fix that soon! ;3


This is #59, with Nae again. I love my character, I'm so happy people keep asking for me to draw her.


After a certain sucker punch, it's hard to stay calm and not enter in a

SO YEAH. PALETTE CHALLENGE, LOTS OF NAE, I HAVE A CONTEST TO WIN.

the lighting there is just fantastic. I love how it shines off her body and how it seems like she's just in deep thought, alone and thinking about something.

I also love how amazingly attractive she is, even though I'm not that into anthropic-insectoide.

Beautiful and from what I've learned from those that are older than me is that a sucker punch may hurt at first but if you just give your body a few seconds to recover from the blow. You'll see that that sucker punch lacks the real strength and will also prove that you have better control and restraint.

Thank you :D (Big Grin)

By the way, I already have a mantis and two leaf insects (would love to see you make one of those in your art). Plus I have ordered an orchid mantis (as stated before) and two djungle nymphs. I also want a scorpion and an african land snail, but I don´t have room for those yet :( (Sad)

If you want to have a pet mantis yourself it´s not hard or expensive. At least not for me ;) (Wink)

I love mantids SO MUCH! The main problem is that I live in a highly urban area, and it's rather cold too, so it's really hard to find them! I found one common green one once, and that was it... ;-;

Please take photos of your little orchids when you get them, I'd love to see them!

One of my watchers once bought a pet centipede, and named it "Gyaraku" after my centipede character: white-mantis.deviantart.com/ar…

I thought it was so awesome!

Well I don´t have wild mantises here in Sweden, so I have to buy them from a pet shop. Same thing with stick/leaf insects. Sadly they don´t have any orchid mantises or djungel nymphs for the moment, and they probably won´t have them until september :( (Sad) 

I will take many photos once I get them, but it won´t be until september. But if you like mantises you can look at some of the pictures I´ve already put, and if you want to see more, I can easily fix that ;) (Wink) 

Well your characters are awsome and beautiful, so there´s no surprise there =P (Razz)

Simply gorgeous work! I really love all the beautiful line work for Nae's body. You are VERY good and imaginative with anatomy. The only thing I can never seem to place are the curved bits running along the back of her calves down to her ankles. Would it be alright if I asked what that is?

White orchid mantises have petal -like appendaces in their tibia: c2.staticflickr.com/6/5005/533…
They're propably there to make blending in with the flowers easier.

I took a nap and I had the most peculiar dream. It had a butterfly anthro in it and I was a kings son on another planet and I was set for an arranged marriage with this butterfly women. I remember the womens kisses where kinda dry but soft. her  eyes where large and black. 
I recall her face was covered in the kind of powder you find on moth wings and that she would affectionately rub her face on mine as a sort of way of  saying I own this person or something like that.

I remember going to a school with other alien races and  my teacher was this kind of grass hopper looking thing with long skinny backward bending legs and  long arms that ended with a hand  with three digits. I remember one lesson was on human knowledge as compared to the  development of the aliens with the comparison focusing on how even though the different races  had  been living on the planet long before  humans even began using a  written language that they for  some reason never  developed much past the human equivalent of the renaissance.


I Also had a twin brother who was mad that he was not chosen for the air and he tried  to kill me with a bow and arrow.  There was this long part where I was running from him through the city and I hid in a stairwell, he stuck his head over the edge to look down and see if I was there and I shot him in the face with my own bow.
