"A...*shy* silkworm. xD I'm sorry if it's random. Well, it's just I know someone who really likes silkworm but I'm just dunno how to start a conversation with him. Maybe if I show it to him he'll say thank you (duh) and I can finally have the courage to talk to him. (lol. it sounded like a drama letter) anyway, a silkworm if you can or if you feel like to draw it. " — from A.
About a month ago, I posted on my Facebook page
that I was open to doing some art requests because I felt the need to practice drawing things apart from my own ideas.
I was happy to take on the challenge of using an interesting animal like a silkworm (Bombyx mori
) as the subject of a drawing, especially considering I hardly ever draw insects — and never before a silkworm. More importantly though, I was drawn to the earnest wish behind the request.
There is still a great deal I hope to improve, but this was definitely educational!
This is the first sketch that I've managed to polish up into something relatively presentable, however still pretty rough. So sorry! So many things have been piling up! But I'm still working on some others during my free time Dear A., I did not include your full pseudonym so as to avoid compromising your privacy, but if you'd rather I not share your comment as well, kindly just send me a note/message and I will gladly take it down!
I just have this tendency to ramble on about stories behind the images I post. And I do hope this drawing isn't too late!
