This started out as a doodle, but it turned out to be something a lot more. I think my skills at doing background art is getting better, and same with fitting characters into them.
Here is some backstory.
The Scient are a sentient race of humanoid bugs. They went through a similar evolutionary path as humans, but on their world the mammals became few in numbers. This allowed the insects to easily grow without the threat of predatory animals. They are a race controlled by a hive-mind, but they are getting to the point where one will no longer be needed. They are becoming individuals.
On their home world - one that never required a name - the empire is split. Those who mindlessly follow the queen, and those who antenna have begun to recede.
I am going to leave the rest to interpretation because I am actually interested into making this a story.
btw that pinkish brown thing in his eye is his second eyelid.
