Many years ago an internet acquaintence bought a nice little picture frame and offered me $75 to draw something to put in it, with the prompt of it being some kind of buggy druid kind of thing. the result ended up being, to date, probably still one of my favorite drawings. i immediately regretted selling it for so little money and tried a couple times to recreate it for myself but both attempts i ended up not liking nearly as much as the original. still, i ended up using the scan ofhte original as my profile icon for my social media profiles and ended up getting enough art of the beetle wizard that i elevated it to Character status even though i never developed a full-body design or any kind of real story or background for it, or even a name, which is why it is simple The Wizard. this ended up being a kind of fun gimmick in itself since it allowed anyone who wanted to do art of the caracter free reign to design the body however they want. eventually i'll make more art of The Wizard myself but i mostly like keeping it around as a prompt for other artists.
