Caterpillar by CrystallineColey Caterpillar by CrystallineColey
I did the caterpillar ages ago, but never finished the background... Now I have.

Just a cute caterpillar inspired by the song by The Cure. I love big eyed creatures. (And I know caterpillars aren't animals, they are insects, but there is no insect section.) It was great coloured pencil practice, animal practice and kid-ish style practice.

Done in Prismacolor coloured pencils and colourless blender.

(Oh, and see? I *DO* draw stuff other than Harry Potter and Tori Amos! :XD: Yay.)

Putting it in Prints, in case anyone for some reason wants it.

Caterpillars are insects too! They're a member of Animalia, along with other interesting things like kelp XD

He makes me think of something you would make, not me... :aww: I think that's why I liked the idea myself! :D Well, now he's happily in the finished pile, eating it up! Thank you for favouriting him! :aww: Glad he's liked! I'm surprised he's SO liked! :XD: He's not Harry Potter! (How'd that happen? ;P)

Dang, what to name him... Oh my goodness, now I want to make him buggy friends!! Like a slug... and a... slug... And the turtle I wanted to draw can be his friend too! The bugs can ride him! :XD: If only he was an inchworm, I'd call him "Inchy". Lame, I know! Hm.. If you think of a good one, let me know, I don't know what to name him! (Ooh, and they have that buggy spider show on OnDemand! I haven't seen the episode yet where they sang that adorable song...)

I'm pretty sure insects class as animals....

Anywho, this picture makes me giggle. The caterpillar has a great expression on his face! =)

Thank you so much for your kind words and the :+fav:! :aww: I tried to give him the silliest grin, it kind of makes me wonder if he's an unknowing troublemaker. :XD:

Thank you! :aww: I bet he's one of those ones where he's deceptively small... He could probably take out a whole rainforest on his own! :XD: Beware!

I don't know which Cure song made you think of caterpillars, but this is a cute picture. :)
