Anon questions :)
1. Thank you! Of course, that’s what they are. :) Hmmmm, A lot of things. But if you are asking me what inspired me to draw those little critters, I guess it was just a matter of me missing to draw in children’s book illustration style again. Since I always feel like I should draw more in CB style when I’m working on non CB’s, and more non-CB’s when Im drawing in children’s book style, I just came up with a simple solution of why not marry the two ideas/styles. :) Also; Haruki Murakami, Studio Ghibli, Poems, Music, classical artists + eastern contemporary artists… etc etc etc. 
PS. Right after painting them, I realized that they actually look like porings. :3
2. Yep, like, literally stretching them and securing the sides, right? Is there another way of “stretching” though? :)) ( Sorry, But I get this question a lot, and it makes me wonder if there is another more professional/artsy way of doing so. idek )
3. Thank you! I assume you are pertaining to the lips that I paint. :))
4. Hello! No. 
I think the color is called hazel green? Im part serbian, so, there. :D

Thank you, anons. Keep them coming! ;)
