Don't steal or copy my characters, please!!
If you draw something like a fanart for me, it will be so sweet of you, guys////QoQ :heart:
:icondonotuseplz::iconmyartplz::icondonotuseplz::iconmyartplz::icondonotuseplz::iconmyartplz:

:new: UPD: edited old one and created a new version of this reference. Green colors of Nail and PanPan were changed with time, so using the old reference wasn't right. 
Hahah, it was pretty difficult to edit old versions comparing with creating new ones. I used too many layers two years ago xDDD
Now it became more detailed. But even it's so, there is no enough space for all of them.


Finally I drew a ref sheet for them! Hoho// I created an idea for this story in faaaar 2011 year. It was November. And the idea came to me so suddenly - I tried to book an appointment at the clinic =В B-but I was struck by inspiration// :iconrenarapefaceplz: Anyway I love insects from my childhood and always wanted to draw a story about several of them// And my dream comes true~~~:iconmyfeelzplz:
At first, I plan to finish my 8-pages oneshot about Amanita-chan (hope you remember her %)), after I'll complete to draw this, "Gooseberry" oneshot story (maybe 50 pages)/ And after it I'll start to draw a manga about Chiei. And one more, I have already done a storyboard and wrote all plot// But there is one interesting moment - I didn't decide how will the end of this story. Happy end or dramatic end :iconconfusedneplz: What will be better?

I added voices which fit characters in my mind =D Just for fun///

A little description about characters:

Age: 3 months (18 years old).
General lifespan of this insect's specie: 1-2 years.
(A little?XDD) tsundere, but usually controls herself. Not every time can see a situation trough "cold view".

Dreaming about be a member of elite task force with Roon, but she isn't allowed because of her sex reason.

General lifespan of this insect's specie: 8-10 days.
Insolent, obtrusive and loves to do malicious smile. Tries to bully Miika every time when they meet.
Lives with a family and Panpan in another place unknown to ladybugs.
Shorter then Miika, but almost the same age because of different growth's speed reason.

:rose: Emma - Miika's best friend, an ant.
Age: (18 years old)
General lifespan of this insect's specie: 1-7 years (female ~ 20 years). 
Very cheerful and open-handed girl. Almost all her time busy with her work, but tome to time likes to run to Miika's village and spend time with her. Very glad to have such a nice friend. Runs off at the mouth. When she has some free time, does handiwork.
Tries to make Miika a match to Roon as Miika's mother XDD
Weapon: weaponless.

Harmonious character. Usually calm and marches to his own drummer, however, talking to others does smile and earns a good reputation. Shows himself to good advantage in Miika's family and is going to be the one for whom Miika's mother Saterina wants to match her daughter. 
Sometimes throws himself in Miika's way, but that ladybug is always busy somewhere.

I love your art, and your concepts. But why do you have to give them a lifespan? Are you planning on killing them all off? Can't they live forever in Imaginaryland?
