Moth woman by KGMomo Moth woman by KGMomo
A finished illustration of a theriomorphic creature for my Biology class. I chose to combine a human with a moth for an alien-looking design that might fit in a science fiction game. I'm fairly happy with how this one turned out!

Lot of time ago I created a moth-demon woman but I couldn't imagine the demon's form... Your art gave me inspiration *-*
I'm sorry if my design looks to much like yours >.< I hate copying other artists...

x~
sorry for any mistake in the text :B

No problem! Everybody works off of their inspirations, myself included, and it can take a long time to find our own voice. I'm still getting there, myself. Go ahead and do whatever you'd like, just keep practicing!

I really like the almost feathery look of the antenna and "mane" of hair. It really captures the moth-like qualities you were going for. I also really like the structure of her torso/thorax.

Now, that is most certainly an interesting creature you've got there :O I love the design, and how you incorporated the moth elements. Its not just wings and feelers stuck onto a human body.

You did this for a biology class though? How does it relate? :O

It's a biology class in an art school, where we're expected to sometimes come up with original concepts that still feature an understanding of animal anatomy. Often these illustration assignments come with different stages, including diagrams about the skeleton and muscle structure of the character! It's one of my favorite classes, though it probably has to come after life drawing. I'm just able to sharpen so many of my weaknesses in that class.

Thank you! :3

Ahah! That makes more sense now. I was thinking that it sort of screwed over the people in the class who wre extremely lacking in artistic talent XD But wow, that sounds like one awesome class. I know that I loved bio at school, it and art being my favourite subjects, but merging to two together like that would make one kickass subject indeed! I am very jealous :la:

I wish I could see her bottom half. I like the moth you chose though, I recognize the species but I can't recall the name.

It's more than just one kind, though the fluff on the head and arms definitely comes from Tolype moths! I took a bit of liberty in the colors, though I remember seeing pictures of red and white moths before...

oh I'm so sorry I didn't reply to this! The way I did this one was by making a simple drawing layer, (not going too crazy on refining it,) then painting under it to get the base colors. After that, I color shift the drawing layer, and the lines sort of become my "shadows." I then paint over both layers to help determine a clear light source and texture, and gradually reined it to where it is now! And there you have it, that's my technique :3
