Ok, fist of all I am WUI (writing under influence for you baka gajins)
Second, the character is awesome, some aspects could be considered such as moths are fluffy and soft, the gown works here as soft but chitin armor isn't, consider adding some fluffy elements indicating that she is soft and cuddly.

Second and arguably more important.
Here is the thing that been bugging me for long in your drawings.
Lots of them are placed in void, same with fire sprite and this moth and some of your dragons and the space ship with nothing going on.

They are all just artist bragging about awesome concept he had (as an fellow but amateur artist I can relate)
You cheapen them, the ship is empty, just a nice background and a ship, the fire sprite, dragons and tons of other characters are just placed on a while background.
They are awesomely detailed and nice to look at but not interesting.
They lack back story and character, because you wanted to showcase your awesome idea and couldnt wait to finish it.
Thats right, they are unfinished drawings to me.

Those characters are concept drawing.
The moth could have a tea party with some other bugs wearing royal drag.
The space ship could have some space pirates making someone walk the plank toward space shark.
The fire sprite could play with water sprite or something but, they all trapped in a white background with nothing going on.
You cheapen them this way and just waste a good character.

Please consider re-drawing them in some interesting setting that would place them not on the white background but in the middle of their own story because you do have talent and imagination, just lack patience to use them to their full potential.
What do you think?

If it is the same material as their bodies, it might be rather light. At least... on a small scale.

Jetzt mal hierzu - sehr sehr schöne Darstellung! Ich mag deine Motten und ähnliches mit solchen Flügeln einfach <3 Dein Stil ist so passig dafür und du stellst Insekten allgemein so toll dar, selbst in humanoider Form.
Ich bin immer wieder fasziniert. Dein Stil ist einfach so einzigartig, so etwas habe ich bislang nirgendwo sonst gesehen :) Und das ist jedes Mal wieder schön, wenn ich ein neues Bild von dir sehe.
Mach' unbedingt weiter so!
