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:

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?

:new: P.S. I added voices which fit characters in my mind =D Just for fun///

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?
