LOL thats so funny!!! Hahahahahaha I'm glad to have helped u, but chipmunks are indeed evil and I'm just spreading the word xD
Thankyou, Silver!! Sometimes I also go back and look at my old work to find what I've changed x3

So I revisited this piece of artwork, because the buildings reminded me of your most recent work. And I reread your intro about it and remembered that this is what I got my evil killer chipmunk idea from! XD I want to thank your imagination once again for this disturbed awesome idea.
Keep up the good work! Ganbatte!

Yeaaahhh D: It was a bit sadistic for me when I was little xD But really it's like a masterpiece ;u; ~~
I haven't seen it yet but the soundtrack is soooo cooollll~~~~
Otaku Legend | Posted 08/06/12 | Reply
I know what you mean!! I think I got scared when the big shadow guy is a bunch of junk and is throwing it all up and chasing Chihiro!
And I agree! I didn't know whether it was supposed to be a romance or what... I should really watch it again!!!!!
YES you should watch that one again too!!! <3
Otakuite++ | Posted 08/05/12 | Reply
YESSSSSS and the scene with the river spirit scared me ;u; But it's so bittersweet and asdfhasdkfjahsdkfljadhkljh~~~
though I think Chihiro is too young (and Haku's like 123947129348792308 years old lol XDD) for it to be a romantic love story, but more like close friendship ;w;
...and now I wanna watch Howl's Moving Castle heeeeh~ XD

^_^ Thats so cool that you saw influence from it in my art! I need to watch that one again soon :D
Otakuite++ | Posted 07/27/12 | Reply
YES YES it's that one!! XD
Otaku Legend | Posted 07/21/12 | Reply
Oh yeah, Nausicaa maybe! ^_^ Thats the one I had in mind while drawing this xD
Otakuite++ | Posted 07/17/12 | Reply
No prob! ^^ Haha sorry about my late reply as well! >u<` Hmm, I don't know how to spell it! D: I think it was Na-something... xD
Otaku Legend | Posted 07/11/12 | Reply
I wouldn't have though that either, but I forgot a chipmunk lives right where the bug was >3< Gah! Awwww so cute! I used to have a squirrel that came up to eat out of my hand! I think I will like the book too! ;D
Grand Otaku | Posted 07/10/12 | Reply
Yeah he should have, I didn't even know chipmunks ate bugs. I had a pet chipmunk years ago and loved him, he was so cute^//^ Oh, your welcome of course people have different tastes in books so just because I liked it doesn't necessarily mean you would, but if you did then I helped you find a good book.
Otaku Legend | Posted 07/07/12 | Reply
Haha I used to love chipmunks, but the one in my backyard... is evil! xD Kidding, but I'm having fun joking about it lol! I know, it was just surviving, but it should have ate something else instead of the poor helpless cicada!! D8<
OOooo I'll go look it up at my library, it sounds super! Thanks for the nice comment and recommendation, Hannah!!
Thanks! I'm happy the atmosphere turned out like this, and glad you approve^^ Yeah you're right! I thought of that scene too (and I think they are called Ohmus? x3)
Grand Otaku | Posted 07/05/12 | Reply
What a shame, I love chipmunks:( ...poor cicada.
Oh my goodness, this drawing so reminds me of a book I read. It's called "The boy at the end of the world" in my opinion it was a good book. If you ever read the book you'd know why I identify this picture with it. And it's a good drawing by the way makes me want to read that book again.

Otaku Legend | Posted 07/05/12 | Reply
xD Sorry! You're right! Feel free to call me Jen or Manga! ^_^
And how may I call you? Mangakid it's kinda looooong for me XD
Ok Jouan-chan!!! ^_^ Your name is nice^^
Ah thankyou SO much!! ^_^ Sorry for misunderstanding^^ I actually spent a while on it yes, so I'm glad it gives a realistic effect! Thanks again!

Haha, Any nickname is fine with me but if you preffer to use the most common ones you can call me Jouan or Jan, I'm kinda used to those names ;)
And what about you? any nickname you would prefer?
Otaku Legend | Posted 07/04/12 | Reply
Thankyou, my friend!! Sorry for replying late! (I hope this isn't a duplicate reply either, I got confused!) I really appreciate your comment here, on my cicada artwork! It means more to me cuz you don't like bugs but you still viewed and commented on this, thanks!!!
Btw what can I call you for a nickname?? <3
Thankyou so much!! Sorry for the late reply on this (its my cicada drawing!) I'm really glad I portrayed that mood in this work! Thanks a million! What was the Ghibli movie that you saw?
Thanks so much and sorry for the late reply^^'
Ah you no like?? @_@

xD Thats just awesome!! Hip hip hooray for Zebra&Zeb!! ^_^
The Marker Maniac. (Otaku Eternal) | Posted 07/02/12 | Reply
XD I will be to sad if they didn't make it, so of course Zebra& Zeb will come with massive transportation! XD
Ah thankyou so much!! ^///^ I'm actually going in and out of an art block, its weird!! When i started this one, I was in an art block and then I started getting more creative but after finishing it, I got stuck again >3< I'm doing much better now though! I needed to do something creative like this or else I'd be stuck still!
That is epic!! I used to collect the skeletons too! I really wish i could of seen this one hatch though >3<
XD Yeah they are evil!! xD
Thanks again for the lovely comment ^_^
Thanks so much, Ryu!! Lol and I think that would be a great idea, Toya already mentioned Alvin too xD That way I could make it a funny comic instead of a sad one >u<
Lucky you =_= Chipmunks are evil!! xD
Thanks again a million!!! ^_^ I really appreciate it and I'm glad you're feeling better and better :D
Yeah I agree on that!! LOLz
AH that is an awesome idea!!! It made me laugh too, it would be super! I never even thought Kaji+Cicada would have a chance to survive when doing this pic.. but with Zebra and Zeb & massive transportation, they'd definitely be rescued!! XD
Ugh yes =_= But I was really sad! xD
POOR MADD!! And poor you! Evil chipmunks are genius ;D

lol today I'm feeling a little better, so I can comment but not to much! XD I had to comment this drawing is really good and I like the story so I had to let you know! XD
you know Alvin and the chipmunks can be evil but they don't show it? XD
I think that even if there was an escape route, Kaji wouldn't leave, I don't think he's the type to leave anyone in danger, so he has to wait until the re-enforcement arrive! (Zebra&Zeb with massive transportation!!!)
Otakuite++ | Posted 06/30/12 | Reply
Whoa!! This piece has a lot of impact! o.o I love the mood it sets~ >u< It reminds me of this really old Studio Ghibli movie I saw recently. Awesome work! :D
Otaku Eternal | Posted 06/30/12 | Reply
You're in art black and you could do this???? thats insane! This is awesome. I had so many books on cicadas when I was little. Me and my uncle collected the skeletons they left behind and studied them under a microscopic for a science project of mine. I had completely forgotten about that.
Evil chipmunks.... lol XD
Otaku Legend | Posted 06/30/12 | Reply
roflol Leave it to a parent to be logical about that sort of thing XD
Yes, Madd is none to happy at me for the moment. Plus my parents think I'm crazy for having killer chipmunks in my story -3-
zip skyblue (Otaku Eternal) | Posted 06/30/12 | Reply
the art work is pretty cool, if you are still gonna make comic strip about this you should use alvin and the chipmunks as the main villains.
Azure Dragon (Otaku Eternal) | Posted 06/30/12 | Reply
haha yeah!! XD XD we don't have chipmunks here XD XD
Lol its me! xD I know, this is weird right? Ahaha sorry! I'm glad you like the drawing though, even if the bug is gross! I really appreciate your compliments, Quorra!
Oh man, Toya!!! THANKYOU SO MUCH FOR THE COMMENT!! You didn't have to comment with your sore hand! I Really appreciate it though!! ^_^
LOLZ Alvin and the evil chipmunks! That made me laugh! xD
Thanks^^ Ugh yes, I was so upset!! Ack your dad scared you with them?! xD I usually like most bugs but I know what you mean... Once I was trying to pick up a adult cicada from the ground and it started buzzing like crazy and scared me so much!
Yay!! I'm so glad you like the atmosphere! And I noticed something I didnt mean to do... I sorta gave Kaji a way of escape in the way of a stair case but he won't take it cuz he's staying a loyal friend to the Cicada @_@
Oh Toya, I'm sorry!! I can't wait for you to get back!! You don't have to write to me until you feel better^^ My hand started hurting yesterday but it was just from overuse and now its a better. I'm so sad that your hand is hurting so much >3<
Thanks SO much for the comment though, its made me So happy!!
Ah Animal Crossing is awesome!! I can totally relate! I used to love hunting cicadas, but once I accidentally deleted my file on the game and it made me SO SAD! I'm looking forward to the 3DS version though!
Teehee thanks so much for saying that, it makes me happier^^ That means a lot to me seeing that I don't draw like this usually!
Same here! I like the Ohmus in Nausicaa x3
Haha! Thanks so much, Ramen!! I'm really glad you think its cool! I'm getting quite a bit of varied feedback on this one. I'm really happy to read your nice words about it^^
Yes I used the gif site cuz I couldn't decide which avi to use anymore xD Thanks again!!! <3
Ah you like the story!? ^_^ Thanks! It got me so emotional, I got quite inspired to create stuff from it too!
Poor Madd though! @_@ lol!
Haha you're right! Thanks again^^
Aw what we do for bugs eh... Its so sad when they don't pull through though :( My dad just told me that if we did saved all the bugs, we'd have infestations everywhere =_=

Hey Birdie? That bug looks kinda gross... Your drawing is super good though, so good that it's grossing me out...
Haha XP *yeah beat those evil chipmunks!*

I know I shouldn't be over using my hand by commenting but I must comment!
I read this in the pm you sent me and I was sad! and seeing this drawing make me happy that at least Kaji is fighting ! Alvin and the evil chipmunks! XD
My sibling like cicadas so they both would of been really upset! I'm kind of scared of them (I blame my dad for that) but I would try my best to take care of them!
You did a really great job drawing this and I really like the atmosphere! It really does remind me of Nausicaa like you said! I also love that movie! XD
Man you are motivatingme to draw but I can't!!! T_T Well I better stop here or my hand will fall off. *in pain, but happy that I commented!*

I had a pet cicada on Animal Crossing XD I like the sound they make.
Poor little bug. At least he has the coolest memorial that any cicada ever had! I really like the drawing. I thought of Nausicaa too. I'd rather like to be friends with an Ohmu <3
Agent Ramen (Otaku Eternal) | Posted 06/29/12 | Reply
Sorry to heard the chipmunks ate the bug...you drew them really well on this pic, they do look evil.
When I first saw this I thought it was freaking cool :) I didn't question why you drew this, because I thought that you had a dream about Kaji and a bug and wanted to express it ;D The background is amazing, buildings are nicely drawn and perspective is on point.
talk you later :)
(Oh yeah, nice avi :D)
Otaku Legend | Posted 06/29/12 | Reply
Honestly, I was probably thinking less about your artwork at the moment than at the story that was being told. ^^" I though "what an epically twisted story this magnificent of evil furry cuteness would make" MWAHAAAHAHAAAA! I believe you have just created a monster. I hope that makes you happy ;D My OC Madd will not be happy because I've suddenly decided to plague him with killer chipmunks XD
Perhaps you should have titled it "The Boy and His Bug." lol I loved the detail on the buildings and the muted colors are perfect for a life & death struggle.
I'm sorry about your cicada. I tried to save a worm that I had accidentally torn apart . . . needless to say it didn't make it
Lol good one xD Those chipmunks!! >3<
You're sure a chipmunk didn't eat it? ;)
Haha! *highfives* So cool!!
Thankyou, Fyki-kun!! Thats exactly what I was trying to portray.. I've got so emotional of late and I'm trying to express stuff in my art but I feel a bit trapped cuz of an art block >_> So that means a lot to me to hear that! Thanks so much, I'm glad you can feel those aspects in this artwork!
Thanks again!!! ^//u//^ I really appreciate it my friend!
Drachen Herz (Otaku Eternal) | Posted 06/29/12 | Reply
.. I will be honest, even before reading the description I thought about Nausicaa as well. xD
I... How to start this comment.. Well the picture speaks for itself. It is wonderful, it really is. Not in the way that it looks beautiful, but what it represents. Courage, stand, determination, honor, friendship... everything is put in this one drawing.
I also like the story of that little rescue. That inspiration alone shows how a great artist you are. Again, you did a great job on this!^^

Haha, I know, I know. I was joking. xDD
Thanks Kaijin! The colouring is a bit duller on my actual paper, so I spruced it up on picmonkey.com xD (my secret weapon lol) I'm really glad you like it! Thanks again!
OH! I didn't meant that! I meant to say that you support me in everything, especially how I colour and I thankyou for it! Sorry!! ^_^' Yes thankyou so much!! <333
Ahahah nice! Aria is awesome ;D
The composition and the details are nicely done. You also did a really good job with the color scheme and the perspective. (love the effect you got with the evil chipmunks)
Hey, hey. IM A SUPPORTER OF YOUR DRAWING, TOO. xD
It just, colors are cooler. :D <-- you see what I did there? ALLITERATION. /shot
Ahah! Thanks, Lea! Man you're one of my biggest supporters when it comes to my colouring, THANKYOU SO MUCH!!!! <333
Ooh, what an interesting concept. :3
AND HOLY SHIZ. YOUR COLORING IS JUST FANTASTIC ONCE AGAIN. :OOO ITS ASTOUNDING.
THANKYOU SO MUCH, HANATAN!!!! I'm so glad you like it even though you don't like bugs >3< Its kinda weird cuz i used to draw bugs a lot but this is the first time I've uploaded a new bug picture on theO xD
Its a bit duller on paper since I did some contrast editing though. But THANKS!!! ^_^
Thats so funny!!! Yeah I was kinda wondering how people would react cuz I myself wonder why I just went off on a rampage and did this xD I was emotional and under inspiration! XD lol

it looks really epic!! *.*
I love the colours, and the chipmunks look really evil XD
and I love the background story ^^ XD *pats your back* you tried :) that's enough XD if that cheers you, once I had "saved" a snail and took it as a "pet" (hey.. I was what, 6? XD) and what happened? that snail managed to RUN AWAY!!! the snail!!! XD XD I still can't believe it XD
Yay!! Thanks so much, Hanako!! I'm so happy after reading your comment ^//u//^

It's kind of funny how my mind went when I saw this XD First, I was like... oookay... and then I saw your description ("Don't ask!.. cuz I'm gonna tell xD") XD And then I was like, huh... it's like Nausicaa or Pokemon... and then I saw "It kinda reminds me of Nausicaa." XDD Either you were accurately predicting my thoughts or we just thought the same things XD
Man, that's soooooo cool I felt in love with background ♥_♥
Really great work! You're amazing!
