Another conceptual design that I'm ready to model up. In fact, I'm starting this one tomorrow: a humanoid mantis.
This one throws in a lot of kung fu influences such as the northern praying mantis and the odd cheesy films*. One major cock up I made on the drawing was that I forgot the extra pair of legs. I have it corrected on the rotoscope version, which looks much better than what you're seeing here.

* some nut suggested to me that it oughta be riding on a surfboard and not on a leaf. I could give it a shot.
