Mantis Organoid by GhostLiger Mantis Organoid by GhostLiger
Seeing a load of organoid artwork in my watchlist suddenly reminded me that I hadn't uploaded this guy. It's a far cry from the original idea I had for him, but at the same time a bit more realistic to Mantis shape. I'm happier with this design.

At some point I must colour... At some point I must finish a lot of unfinished work ^^;

Whoa...weird! I've never seen a BUG organoid before! Clever! ^^ Man, one of these days I need to figure out how to draw my wolf organoid.

XD It's something different from the dragons. I called him Reki last night. Not sure why XD

Yus! I'd like to see him. I've also had a desire to paint a Liger Zero orange for sometime. I'm sure you know why XD

Hey, it's not like any of the other organoid names make sense or have a theme. I mean...Zeke. Really. XD There's nothing too special about that, except maybe that he's on planet 'z'.

I am SO bad at drawing robots, though, I don't even want to try him because I might mess him up! >.< Maybe I could comission you to do your take on him sometime. You're so good at it.

...Oh my WORD, it is hilarious you said that. Because I took part in starting a Zoids fanfic in high school (never finished), and one of my characters totally has a neon orange Liger Zero. XD

True, though Zeke was named after Van's dad's Command Wolf.

Aw :( Well, if you got a nice write up for his appearance throw it at me and I'll see what I can do. I need to draw a bit more, especially Zoids. My motivation fell a little flat ^^; And thanks :blush:

XD Well that is the reason I wanted to paint one orange after all XDD

Oh, totally didn't know that. But there ya go! Organoids can have any name you want. ^^

I'll try! One of these days I might get up the guts to try him myself, but I'm half terrified I'll mess him up and forever mar the nice-if-incomplete image I have in my head. ^^;

Pfff, seriously? XD I can't even remember how long ago it was that I told you about that! Have you had that idea all this time? That's funny. ^^

There is always that fear. It's taken probably 7 or 8 years for Shadow to even get close to what I imagine him to be. The first step is to start, then you draw them over and over again and you'll notice you'll start to change parts. Shadow's bangs for instance never used to be that long, then one day I looked back at the first picture I ever did of him and noticed that somewhere along the line I'd just started drawing him like that XD

I think it was not long after we first started emailing each other. And yus I have ^^ I always loved the idea of the paint spots on the Hover Cargo being from the Liger shaking after he'd just been sprayed XD

XD That's pretty much what's happened with my characters, esp. the Random Insanity Trio. Riverfox's face has changed a lot as I learned how to draw animalistic faces at different angles, and drawing RFWGirl and Typer over and over again has really improved my ability to draw their faces better. I do know that I was a little frustated by one thing that happened when I drew them, though: I lost my mental image. In the beginning, I actually literally could imagine Riverfox as a living furry being, like, in 'real vision'; now I have a hard time with that and only see her as the cartoon form. But such is the price of sharing your character with the world.

Yesss! XD I'm really not surprised I shared that with you now that we're talking about it; after all, you were my biggest fellow Zoid fan friend. I wish I could have done something with that story, but since it was my friend's story idea, I didn't know where to go with it when he gave it up, so I never got past chapter two. But I still like to go back and reread what I have sometimes. =D

There is that sadly.

XD I know the feeling. Electric started a story of TC and Shadow but lost the motivation to carry on, and I don't know where to take it.

Actually I think it was Sonic 2 in the Metropolis Zone. It was the mantises that threw their blades at you that you're thinking of right? Slicers?

Yes, I was getting them mixed up with the Mantis in Sonic 3 at Marble Gardens.
