I’m PRETTY sure it’s a Marbled Emperor. I’m not certain as I was really tired and in a rush while drawing them, but that one looks the closest from the moths that I know. I might’ve altered the colouration a bit to be more colourful!
Here’s the original post with my stickers in case anyone was curious!
Heyyy! Sorry about the slow reply, I’ve been ridiculously busy this past month! This is a bit hard for me to answer though, so I will give you some general advice that I wish I’d known at that age. To be honest, most of this is super-generic, but I know that I DEFINITELY wish that I’d been doing these earlier on in my artistic path;
I don’t really have any formal artistic training (I have an education in graphic design) so I don’t have any cool techniques to pass on really! I honestly just draw things that I am passionate about and that I find aesthetically pleasing. I’ve found that much of the work that I put the most heart into has been the most beneficial to me! :’D
I tried to think of a way to describe Oxley’s hair using just words but I couldn’t, so… I’ll do it with the assistance of images. :’D But yeah they KIND OF do, though it isn’t that obvious because of how they tend to style their hair. It’s very short at the back/sides, while on top it’s feathered/layered to reach maximum length right in the middle. They also have a little bit of a fringe, which is cut at differing lengths. I don’t draw their hair longer on one side in particular, because Ox can flip it onto either shoulder.
They have naturally wavy hair, and because Ox (and Zac) are buggy aliens, I like to imagine their hair feeling different to ours, probably more… fluffy and feather-like! Ox would style their hair with a lot of hairspray to get that perfect 80’s popstar floofy hairstyle going on (though I imagine it would take some effort to tame it regardless of what they want to do with their hair).
Oh my gosh today was so much fun, what a great first time tabling?? AHH <3 Thank you so much to everyone who stopped by, and especially to those who bought my book, you make all of the hard work put into it worth it! ;; <3333
I still have around 10 copies of Higher Love left for tomorrow, but I will definitely be reprinting them soon so if you’re not able to make it to SMASH, I will be taking preorders for another print run in a few weeks! I still have quite a few stickers and prints left, and I will be taking traditional sketch commissions tomorrow as well!
I hope to see you guys there tomorrow! I’ll still be at table 19, and I’m happy to chat! c:
