MechanesqueMosquito by nyctopterus MechanesqueMosquito by nyctopterus
I killed about seven mosquitos while drawing this - maybe if they had been mechanical they wouldn't have been so pathetically weak.

[EDIT 1, 29th April, 2004 - Added a shadow, stripy bits, and a darker background. Now it's DD I thought I'd better fix it's obvious flaws, and make it more visually interesting.]

[EDIT 2, 17th November, 2006 - Reverted to a plainer, darker look, more in keeping with my style in late 2003, and taken out of storage.]

Daily Deviation

Given 2004-04-28
MechanesqueMosquito by *nyctopterus is a wonderful vector based deviation. Gradients and smooth lines bring this blood sucking mosquito to life. ( Featured by voodoo-prophet )

Oh it was a daily deviation? Congratulations. I am awed as always leaving my pathologically unable to come up with true constructive critism, for what it counts however I really like it.

I hated the fact that it got a DD, because I thought it was mindless filler. I think better of it now.

Well, I think it is more than a filler for sure. The danger of having some outstanding pieces in your gallery is underestimating that what is only very good.
I continue to be enthralled by your art, be it awe inspiring or simply "very good". Come on at least you have a fan :giggle:
