You black and white son of a gun...

This is brilliant! Of course, at the end of the day it really is just another picture of a paying mantis (or incredibly realistic masterpiece), but I see nothing wrong with it. You truly are amazing with pencils. I just think it would be cooler if you drew your pictures more based on backgrounds and certain scenarios and less on a particular character, because that would be even more amazing, very interesting, and have a lot more votes and views. I know I sound very picky, but I generally like pictures that focus more on looking awesome than having a lot of effort on them, even if it is very admirable.

BUT, this is unlike the other extremely realistic pencil drawings I've seen. You perfectly captured the form and style of the mantis in the picture, and it was undeniably irresistible to look at, because I just kept scrolling up while I was writing this!

I remember watching you draw this.

I knew it would turn out as great as it did. I love the amount of detail you can add when simple using charcoal, and you sure as hell did skip any steps on the detail.
Very well done Mori.
