So last night around like 3am I think? I was a lil sleep deprived and a bit stoned and I decided I wanted to invent a monster, I don’t wholly understand my own notes now that I look at them (I think I may have intentionally aimed for making it confusing) but I suppose that adds to the mystery!


breaks-out-the-high-g-note  asked:

The phrase "daddy long legs" is actually used for 3 different bugs: the cranefly, cellar spider and harvestman! So the cranefly looks kind of like a giant mosquito but is very friendly and pretty and dances around surfaces, the cellar spider is the spider with a small sausage-shape body and long spindly legs and they actually will protect you from harmful spiders!! Harvestmen look like spiders but they actually have one joined body part instead of an abdomen/thorax and live in nests not webs!

Thanks! #bugs #insects

Oooh is it a harvestman? Let him in! Stick yer hand in the corner, and there u will find them. A friend and a boy.

Put Ur Hand In The Arachnid Hole & U Will Find A Glove Made Of New Friends

Please excuse my lazy colors and names and bad grammar/spelling, i have a LOT of these to get through. Thanks for all your submissions! 

Stiltzmin- suggested by @beemite regular bug type based on a daddy longlegs. Mine is more based on the harvestman name, it’s legs blend into tall grass and it cuts down the grass to find prey. Probably fairly frail.

Spleeader- suggested by @familiaralien a smol cute jumping spider bug/ fairy because I really like fairy types. Probably a speedy version of aromatisse, whom i pretty much based the design on.

Seedsect - suggested by @erindecker a bug/grass type based on the Brazilian Treehopper. My original design was basically budew with a coconut tree growing out of it’s head, then I thought it would be cute to do a mimic of budew, but it’s pretty boring to have a pokemon that just marginally looks like another pokemon. It’s a neat concept but I just think it’s lazy for a game like pokemon. I stuck with the coconut tree theme but made it more buglike. I think it would be neat if it could have different berries instead of the generic nuts I gave it. Maybe different berry forms would have different stats, but you could only find them in certain climates.

Kissant - suggested by @siryl a bug type based on honeypot ants. This was originally gonna be fairy type since it’s support. It basically heals it’s charges by kissing them and transferring it’s fermenting honey in their mouth. It’s butt was suppose to look like those cliche moonshine jugs, but it looks more like a pastry.

Vermorm and Vermattox - suggested by @crimson-leaves-sensei a bug/poison type based on hammerhead worms. I was trying to avoid doing evolutions but I designed Vermattox first and I liked it’s design so much I just had to keep it. Vermorm’s got the amphisbaena thing working for it, and it’s lacy “foot” is it’s pharynx. Vermattox just wraps it’s body around prey and digests them.

Buzznaw - suggested by @cerothenull a bug/dark type based on a wheel bug. I did a wheel bug  fakemon before, if anyone would care to check the tags, but I decided to push that design further and make a fakemon based on a buzz saw that can tuck it’s legs up and ride on it’s butt-saw like a unicycle.

Well, to cover the basics, they’re collectively called “hymdromons.” It’s a silly name I came up with in high school that pretty much stuck, and it’s a mash-up of “hymenoptera” (the ant/bee/wasp family) and “dromopoda” (the scorpion/harvestman/camel spider family). The inspiration for their biology, behaviors, and design elements come from these groups of animals. Hymdromon is not the name of a single species, however, but a family of species. There are five hymdromon species that I have created thus far, although there are more species in the works (specifically tropical rainforest type species!). There are the Terra hymdromons, Rustback hymdromons, Vagor hymdromons, Turris hymdromons, and Fae hymdromons so far. The main characters of my story are terras, but characters of other species will be featured and play major roles. Each species has different adaptations and general behaviors, but there are many different cultures and color variants within a species. They have their own languages, the most commonly used being the conlang I’ve developed called “Natietik.” They do not have a written language, but a large portion of their communication is via scent and gesture.They are eusocial animals, in the way ants and bees are, and are born into biological castes- workers (tatik), soldiers (kratik), queens (matik), and drones (patik). The only males are the patik; the worker and soldier castes are sterile females. They live in colonies called “clans” which are very tight-knit family units. 

I almost vacuumed this lady up, but she moved just in time.  I just was proud of this photo coming out so well.

My mom saw her and said, “is that a um… a farmer…gardener?”  and I was going ???? and eventually I realized she meant harvestman.  She’s trying really hard to learn about spiders and arachnids because I love them so much.

We’re in the Seattle area and I believe it’s Agelenopsis sp.  Around here, people call them house spiders.  Because around here, people call everything in the house either wolf spiders or house spiders no matter what they actually are.

AS: it’s a hobo spider! It’s not a funnel web as it’s abdomen is not tapered and those legs and classic hobo spider :)

A photograph apparently taken by a friend of Richard David Jame’s (Aphex Twin) girlfriend in his studio of his modular set up & ginger cat. The photograph was then taken down.
