Interrupting our usual arting to upload the sequence of cat petting! 8D

My cat, Cronos!

Wow, that’s a lot of bugs in one page. So much different types of bugs!!

We got Roche’s redesign at the top, one when he still had his face legs, and the one after the incident, where he doesn’t. (In order for the enemies to get away from Roche’s scent tracer, they had to rip off the legs that contain his maxillary pulp, it kinda acts like a nose for bugs).

We have a friendly Lotus Mantis by the name of Nae (AE) owned by this amazing person.

Down below is Irileth Wyrm, a failure of a librarian because she couldn’t really see very well. Unfortunate. She spent the last drop of he cash on Roche’s bar, drinking her money and feelings of failure out, and is now bankrupt. Roche offered her a job opportunity in his bar, which is also going bankrupt.

And then the gorgeous and graceful Lady Black Widow who’s dancing her way to ballet history. A kind and understanding spider full of charms that will leave any person she talks to with a smile on their face. She is a character owned by Lacey, a super rad bud of mine that REQUIRES AN UPDATE FOR HER FELLOW 8 LEGGED OC!!

We go down to the last row and we find a refreshed design of Kelly Stagg, one of Roche’s old friends from before his fall. A stag beetle with a level head and down-to-earth charms who can take care of herself very well. For a long time, she thought Roche was dead, at the same time Roche thinks she was dead as well. Sad miscommunication.

Ohoho, who’s this mischievous Lunar moth who’s always up to no good? It’s Clair de Lune! from none other than this super Stellar gal! With a talent to match her humor, and a character that brings up that sexual tension to a boiling temperature!

And last but not least, it’s a redesign of the fabulous waxtail treehopper, Wendy Waxer, or at least that’s what people know her as. Who knows who she really is? She drastically cut her long hair and went under the radar residing in Roche’s bar. Her wit and cunning can bewitch any unfortunate beings to fall to her charms. Luckily, Roche is a tough egg to crack.

It feels good to draw these old characters and find improvements from their original designs (well the characters that I own).

It’s also super fun seeing other people’s characters in the mix! It feels like a really nice variety! (Just don’t notice the fact that there’s only one male bug and right now and it feels a lot like a cast for a bug harem.)

Nevertheless it was fun. I should dabble in my efforts to the Roche blog a bit more often…

AHHHHHH LOOK AT THAT CUTE NAE! I love how you draw her ; - ; she looks super mischievous xD

I missed your art but it’s nice to see it again! <3

Blade Under Mask: The Devil in Spectacles by White-Mantis

"Asami, how many times must I… HGGRRRR!!! Do not enter the store smoking!"
“Oh Mr. Satou, don’t blame my pipe for your low quality spoiled merchandise.”
“Listen here, old hag, if you doubt my product, you can go BUY SOMEWHERE ELSE!”
“That’s not how you treat a customer, Mr. Satou.”
“You’re not a customer, Asami, you’re THE DEVIL IN SPECTACLES!”

The poor Mr. Satou is a honeybee who owns a spice store in City of Wood, which Asami is a frequent customer. Even though she always buys there, she makes sure she disdains his merchandise as much as possible before purchasing it, in order to receive discounts!

Reblog for day crowd!

There are, of course! My unniverse is populate with anthro arthropods, so centipedes exist! Here’s Gyaraku (you can also search for the tag “Gyaraku” in my tumblr for pics featuring him!):

Blade Under Mask: Back Home by White-Mantis

"Welcome home, Nae!"

Nae, who is known to her clients as ‘Asamitsu’, works as a maiko during the night, every night.

NOT CANON NOT CANON NOT CANON - just something we did for fun! 8D

Two commissions for svarta-perlan that were supposed to be only simple sketches but become… something a bit more refined, because I love this so much omg. 

I can’t, I’m a total sucker for tragedy, and so is svarta-perlan so we always come up with these pics! 

Nae belongs to me. Dema is hers.

I don’t post a lot of sketches but THAT’S TOTALLY WRONG BECAUSE THIS IS SUPPOSED TO BE A “SKETCHBLOG” AND JUST what

I’ll fix this. I will try, at least. I promise.

So here’s this dawn doodle of Kazi, my molten mantis. I should draw her more.I love her, she’s just like Nae but I can draw naughty stuff with her and don’t feel bad hahaha. I will finish that soon, along with the pile of stuff I need to finish.

I’ve been using random word generators to get ideas for images, it’s been going well so far! So here’s the queue I have to finish. The first image’s words were “stool” & “gutter”, the second’s were “fish” & “boots” and the third’s were “sugar” & “profit”.

I already have two more ideas: “apetite” & “gossip” and “licence” & “user interface” (seriously where would I get USER INTERFACE as a keyword hahaha), and it’s going to be hard and amazing!

So if you’re curious about how I draw my stuff here’s a cool thing to look at: I usually set the image’s color and mood before everything else!

In the end I picked a honeybee for the spice seller! Here are the first concepts. I’ll test some colors now.

Oh gosh I love him already! XD

Bugs

What bug would make a good spice seller? 8D

I need one for my next pic!

Nightly doodles. Nae applying make up and Gyaraku busts.

I love Gyaraku oh my god I should draw him more!

Late night bug girl I drew last night.

That night stars collided in the air in a shimmering, ephemeral dance.

Two sparks in the night, holding their masks and speaking their hearts. One would listen bittersweet dreams, plans, expectations. Sparks like those are very special, for they carry the will to keep fluttering after the show is over.
