This is another moth character I created based of the Death’s Head Hawk Moth. Her design was kinda inspired by Sanrio character Kuromi, who looks punky but adorable. I was thinking of calling her after the gem stone Onyx since they both are dark colours and have band-like patterns. It also sounds like a punk-ish name, no?
This started from a sketch I liked of Willow and was just going to be her looking happy. I then decided to play around with some expressions and ended up making a character sheet of the character. I also changed her design by making her eyes bigger, her body smaller and just looking more cuter! Her cheeks puff up when she’s angry and her antenna go straight also when shes shocked or surprised.
This is a character I made for a children’s book I wrote for my BA Honours course. She originally was going to be illustrated as a ordinary moth, but she went through a design change after I finished my course. I made her look more human-ish but still retain her moth-y features.
This was a lot of fun to make! This was created through the use of Paint Tool SAI, Illustrator and finally Photoshop to touch stuff up and add the crayon texture for her wings. The pattern on her coat was drawn from scratch on SAI, using a brush that resembles a crayon brush.

This week is something completely original, where I created a Christmas themed moth! Not much I can say about it but its colouring is kind of based of the Cecropia moth (ref here: http://media.buzzle.com/…/900-148044966-male-cecropia-moth.… ). Hope you all have a Merry Christmas and a Happy Holidays!
