Light Bug by imaginism Light Bug by imaginism
The title for this little guy is called "Light Bug". Pretty simple. He's a little fantasy creature that only comes out during pitch darkness. Cute and fuzzy and very shy. He eats bugs and flowers. It's believed that these guys can be a source of great magical powers and because of this, the light bug has been hunted near to extinction.

Light Bug by *imaginism is a charming piece with beautiful colors and detail, not to mention a wonderfully creative character! The detail on the face is particularly impressive. ( Featured by savagebinn )

The facial details are so different from the surrounding fur, that at first, I thought it was wearing a suit! Another adorible creation, looking forward to more!

Really cute.

Know what he kinda reminds me of? The little.... caterpillars? from Labyrinth? Like the face, a little bit.

Other than that it's a really unique and interesting concept-- I might want one as a pet if I weren't afraid of it eating me. :ohnoes:
