"sauce so strong, pork will pull itself" <-- im leaving this here because some dumshit named *Minyi insisted (btw I thought for the entire day that it was "source" because of your accent, until you typed it out)

---

ANYWAYS this is me as the caterpillar (she had nipples but i was afraid it would be "inappropriate" in someway and get my dq'ed so I covered it with this wave of... blue... things.......) I've always wanted to use colours that are harsh to my eyes so I did it and my eyes died. I've always liked to draw narcissistic people and so I did and I liked it. I've always loved rococo patterns and expensive looking useless luxury items and so I drew it and it was ok. overall I'm happy with the picture but I missed the poor blue nipples.

the caterpillar gives advice and seems to be either wise or just full of himself, of which I chose the latter to have fun with. with this pic I tried to portray the following (my own ideas or from the stories): a caterpillar is pretty small, insignificant and useless, but she shows off her satisfaction and high esteem with her little throne on the mushrooms. a caterpillar is to become a better being by turning into a butterfly, but she probably thinks she is superior to butterflies in her state and brush off her future as insignificant as smoke. her vibrant colours--that which is the opposite of the environment within which she placed herself, asserts her self importance by standing out instead of blending in for safety. lastly, as one of the characters alice meets and seeks help from, the better choice becomes unclear between being lost in the world with many problems, and trusting the advice of a creature with such an appearance.

hopefully the slight strangeness fits into wonderland's madness as well. the whole pic is like full of drug hints too without me even trying. I mean like greens, shrooms, smoke and shapes, radioactive colours, and a caterpillar that is supposed to be somewhat attractive.

closing comments for now and will open after contest is done! also major inspiration from the colours and environment come from *Nashya

[edit] btw this resize to fit browser shit is really annoying

[edit edit] I DIDN'TMAKE IT DX BUT NOW I CAN ADD NIPPLES

I really admire your concentration on intricate designs like embellishments. Especially loving the hand design . Contrast between gold and sorta rotting black. But oh well, my eyes are everywhere cuz you always make your characters design so eye catching in every manner at every corner o_O

The attention to detail in your work was always what I found most impressive. How you take into consideration each and every little thing no matter how subtle.

Gorgeous. I love the how the colors and the shapes express the crazy quirky hallucinogenic aspect of Wonderland. Then the lines and the light direct your eyes to the face of the caterpillar and the strong, regal aspect of it. Wonderfully done and it's a shame you didn't win.

WHOA. Wow. Hot Damn. I freaking love this, and gawd those colors are painful yet awesome. I had a great time reading the info on this, and how you characterized her... I'm really feeling this new take on the caterpillar.
I'm glad you added in the blue nipples, they make me smile.

Wow, that sentence sounded kind of creepy. I meant that in a 'it's not every-day you see blue nipples' - kind of way. LOL.

BTW I too have a fondness for highly detailed but useless luxury items, Rococo (Ooo and Art Deco) anything makes me insanely happy for some reason. :D

Results at the contest are sad (and I'd really like to know on which criteria the judges gave their notes) but the pic is wonderful. What's the most important ? ;) It looks like your style is becoming more precise. Definitely an amazing work ;)
