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.

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
