Caterpillar Doodles 1 by PlayboyVampire Caterpillar Doodles 1 by PlayboyVampire
I got artist's block, so instead of drawing that again, I decided to draw this cute little caterpillar character.

I don't have everything planned for this character yet, but I do have that her name is Katie Piller, she is at a mental age equivalent to that of a 10 year old, and she was adopted by a praying mantis.

I was debating on making this a children's book series, but I didn't know how to go by it.

Katie's inspiration was Heimlich from "A Bug's Life", Maggie Pesky from "The Buzz on Maggie" and surprisingly enough, Hamtaro.

The mantis was based on Maggie Pesky, Manny from "A Bug's Life" and Franklin's mom in "Franklin".

What do you guys think?

Adorable drawings and adorable concept, especially the idea of her being adopted by a preying mantis.

I actually found this from looking up a movie called "Katy Caterpillar" (or "Katy La Oruga", in its original language) on DA. I don't know if you ever saw that movie or not, but it's still an interesting connection, nonetheless.

No, that's actually new to me. I never heard of it. XD

Yeah, it's kind of an obscurity from the 80s.

No prob, by the way. I don't know how much you've played with this concept, but it looks pretty cute from what I've seen.

Well, the shape of Katie's head I have been using since the creation of Countess Mozzarella  NMC - 045 - Pizza-Tronic Countess Mozzarella by PlayboyVampire  Which I then used for nearly all the Cuddlefriends OC's I have  Cuddlefriend's Cuddletime - Christmas Season by PlayboyVampire  and also applied to Bella the Bat  1930's - Bella's Good Mood by PlayboyVampire  

So, I had this head shape for a while.

As to the Mantis, that was actually something I tried to do that was a mix of one of those aforementioned Cuddlefriends OCs named mandy the Mantis  Cuddlefriend's Cuddletime - Mandy the Mantis by PlayboyVampire   with a bit of style and inspiration from Manny and Princess Atta from "A Bug's Life".
