New OC by JunkYardRabbit New OC by JunkYardRabbit
So, this is my newest OC! I've been working on her design for ages to get her how i wanted! Fuck i love her!!

So, she is a Mix of Spiny Flower Mantis's which you can find pics and info here :-amazinglist.net/2013/03/7-amaz… . They are such fasinating creatures, and i always wanted a cute mantis monster girl, so here she is! She was a lot of fun to design and i hope you guys will like her :heart:

Her Arm things are bandaged shut so she cant accidentally eat someone with them (they have mouths inside) and the blue on the back of her legs is actually a type of liquid that can hold fish and other water creatures. She does have wings but she can mold them into her back to make it look like she doesn't have any. She can curl her tail up and produce massive spikes through the soft underside. The spikes on top are for show and are quiet squishy.

ALSO!! I DID A SPEED PAINTING OF THIS! To try and clear my name and because some people suggested it might help with all of the tracing crap :D
See it here :-youtu.be/ynIHGU9la6A

And before anyone else asks, no she isn't inspired by cteno. She is an insect, not a slime thing and her arm things open up how else was i supposed to draw a mantis girl without those arm things :)?

I hope everyone like hers :heart:

Lmao all the people complaining; I don't see how she looks like Cteno past the tail, which matches a mantid's anyway.
To me, she just looks like a chubby mantis girl. I like Her quite a bit tbh, her design is better put together than Cteno's to me.

Ignore the one's that are nakking at you, your monster girl is fab, would love to see more of her ;v;

Aww wow, thank you so much for the nice comment! I just really wanted a mantis girl and im glad what you said about the tail as well. I made he a bit more inset-like with the body sections, but didnt changes her too much :D

Thanks again, i appreciate it!

No problem! I can't stand seeing an artist being accused of design theft, when I've seen your gallery, and you're incredibly talented and creative in your own right. It's not hard to tell your mantis is totally independent of Cteno, some people just jump to conclusions way too fast. ;v;

And, no problem! Glad I could help cheer you up. Keep up the amazing designs. <3

sooo im throwing this out there you say quote "i dont know what cteno looks like" yet about 90% of this "oc" has every feature that cteno has from the shape of the body, to the arms, as well as the abdomen. you whole "cteno has a goo tail" defense is shit because 
:thumb452904253: 
that doesnt look like a good tail as well your "oc" has the same design. now thats out of the way lets talk about your style which is a clear rip off of his style in pretty much every way.

Why are you going around harassing this person over a piece of their art?
No art was stolen.
This wasn't traced.

So there's no reason for you to harass someone who drew a picture, just because it may or may not resemble something else.

cha0t1ck1ng Featured By Owner May 18, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
So lets make this clear
1. never said he stole art
2. i did not say he traced
3. the fact that his whole style is pretty much to a T slugs style
4. im am not harassing anyone, im stating a observation of what i see and how i see it
so there is no need for you to "defend the artist" because i honestly dont care one way or another.
i would just prefer he come clean and admit to at least being inspired by slug and admit to using his style.
the fact "doesnt watch slug" or "doesnt know what cteno is" is a lie.
i rather him come clean


on another note thats "cute" you know talking in tiny text to make this Reply look special

Why does it matter?
It's their oc.

Like I said, come off it and stop being  mindless follower of the guy.
Just because he's extremely popular doesn't give you the right to bother and harass other people.

Come off what on not on anything, And im not mindlessly following him, i watch his stream from time to time thats about it, and like the art, i am never like OMFG NEW ART MUST DOWNLOAD. he juat another talented artist i enjoy, and let me state this again I am not harassing someone, i am pointing out the fact that that his style is pretty much Slugboxs. it matter because i like to see originality. if he developed his own style i would be more impressed. i do like the artist coloring but the style is a clear wannabe style

Again nice "tiny" it really is cute e_e

fuck everyone saying it looks like cteno. 
It looks awesome and original.
Who gives a shit if their's likenesses. 
God damn people are so annoying I swear to god.
Slugbox is a great artist, and you know what? HE didn't claim the way you draw something. So by all means, you wanna have super cool arm thingies? Do it.
You wanna have a blue chick with arms out of her head? Do it.
Screw everyone dishing on your art because their such slugbox fans that they cant accept the fact art can have likenesses.

I mean, like i said i can't have a Mantis girl without those arm things, and hers open, not to mention shes a insect/venus flytrap and her legs and face, colours, hair are all different.

I did like his work, but its not worth the horrid fans that come with it. I haven't watched him for ages and only see fan art really. Thanks for sticking up for me, it means a lot!

Thanks, but i think its only because of the tail to be honest. Like i've said in a few other comments, my oc is a mantis not a slime girl and her insect arms open and have mouths in them. I'm also in the process of changing her tail a little bit so there is no more conflict between the two.

No its ok, i admire people who look out for other artists! I understand where your coming from, but i didnt intend for her to be similar, i re drew her like 6 times? and i was happy with this, but it seems his fans loose their shit over it like the lovely soul above us, commenting and trying to put my style into the ground.

Im going to change her up a little, her tail a little too, but i honestly got her tail from spiny praying mantis's, they have a spiky curly tail like the one i drew. They are super cool!

But thanks so much, im glad you like my colouring, and the video. Thats the only one i have for now but i think ill do some more :D

This is the second time i've come across this. And i didn't notice the first time but, if you don't want people saying she looks Cteno inspired, then you might want to change the bug abdomen since that's basically an exact copy of Cteno's. Could always make it a little more spiky like the mantid she's based off of.  ncmuseumexhibits.files.wordpre… Just a suggestion :3

JunkYardRabbit Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
Too be honest, i've only seen cteno a couple of times recently and it really annoys me that people say i stole her tail. Last time i checked she was a slime thing, not an insect, and i intentionally made my oc a tail like this so she wouldn't be like cteno :/ 
Also, the spikes i have on top are like for show, so they are squishy, but she has big hard spikes that come through her underside of the abdomen when she curls it up it that makes sense? Also would have more spikes on her arms and back when she needs them. She also  I don't even look at slugbox's art anymore unless it comes up on the front page because i got really tired of people comparing my work to his. His work is good and all, i just want to be my own artist and not compared to him.

And yeah, like on that pic you suggested, her tail would go similar when she needs the hard spikes :) Also notice i put that swirl on the wings on her thigh :D Thanks for the suggestion though, i do appreciate it when others look out for each other! I might event draw up that version tonight so people can see what i mean.

TBH i didn't even know Cteno was a slime girl till recently, just thought she was some weird ass monster.

But aside from the tail your baby is pretty unique to me.

Haha yeah me either, she just looked like a science experiment raptor thing to me :P

But thanks, im going to do another one of her soon, and maybe change the tail a little, saw Ctenos new one and was like 'Fuuuuuuuck!" I though it was a slime thing still :/
