This is amazing! Such a dynamic composition, and the pose of the right-side mantis is so expressive and full of movement! I also love the translucent effect on its wings.

The two dueling mantises are so visually compelling I didn't even notice all the mantises on the sword hilt at first! And it's a gorgeous sword hilt, so it really speaks highly of your mantises that my eye was drawn to them first!

This is really nice! A bit of modern kawaii style and a samurai. Goes along nicely!
