kyureshirom Okay, so, I'M BACK HOLLA
Now I just need to think of something to put in my name line.
Sorry for leaving without notifying people, but one minute I was drawing fishy thugs and the next I was in an airport ???¿¿¿ Yeah, we (meaning my immediate family and I) sort of up and went on a week-long trip, and it was pretty hella.
BUT WAIT.
WHILE ON THIS TRIP ALL MY DREAMS CAME TRUE.
And by that I mean OH LAWDY IT'S AN ATLAS MOTH.
As far as favorite animals go, I like gharials, whales, crows, rats, spiders, and those fat and fuzzy Atlas moths. This is the largest species of moth, reddish in color, and so, so fuzzy. While some butterflies and moths have eyespots on their wings so they'll look like an owl's or cat's face to scare away predators, Atlas moths are so large they have an entire, life size snake face on their wingtips.
Ack this photo is so backlit but I DON'T CARE because asdfghjkl it's an Atlas moth and I can die happy.
(Uh, and once this art block wears off I'll probably draw something. Stay tuned.)
