Hey Beautiful ... by Lady-Owl Hey Beautiful ... by Lady-Owl
"...Rejected..."

    I really like Veeno; He's a pretty cool guy and doesn't afraid of anything. Especially not tempting death. He also doesn't get enough love in my art.

    But actually, this would obviously be taking place before he knew Ala and Muora were a couple so he is completely innocent. ;p

    Oh who am I kidding, Veeno is a player through and through. The try hard...

    But despite a couple little things that didn't go to my liking, I really adore this drawing. Sometimes things don't always go how I want them to.. but when they do, it makes me extremely happy and I really love drawing Veeno and Ala. They're such fun characters and hey, Heather and Neelix can't always steal the spotlight. :D

Veeno did have a goatee already but I didn't have it so noticeable in the other pictures, but I certainly agree, it looks good on him and he looks damn fine. ;p

Very nice work! I like how Ala looks! Hoping to see her full body! I imagine her lower body to look like a dress-leg fusion or something, like a jellyfish or a mermaid's purse.

It is ok to have a mental image in your mind. That is often the case with every character we read about. It is natural. But I assure you it wasn't mentioned anywhere she had a Jelly Fish like Skirt or anything and is simply not the case. :)

Love the colors, as always.

Is that supposed to be a bone crest or something similar on Veeno's head?

There's something that's bothering me about your story, and please don't take this as criticism, just an honest desire for conversation. I noticed both your couple (Neelix and Heather) and romantic triangle (Veeno, Ala and Muora) are all cross-species. While I love how exotic your aliens look and how they're not just rubber-forehead people, I just think that would diminish the likelihood of interspecies romance. Genetic compatibility issues aside, wouldn't a creature as graceful and streamlined looking see beauty in similar designs? I would imagine from the perspective of her species, Veeno would look brutish and grotesque. Perhaps those standards of beauty would opened up in someone who had lived their entire lives surrounded by aliens, but a creature would still be biologically hardwired to seek out a mate of its own kind (not that those desires would be possible to overcome; it's similar to homosexual people feeling desires for something other than the opposite sex).

Another issue I see is that everyone seems incredibly open-minded about interspecies romance. Again, that could be the result of the inhabitants of this station developing a liberal outlook in order to get along with each other, but I would still think such relationships would still be taboo. I just think a story where characters have more diversity in their outlooks and philosophies feels more fleshed out to the reader. Right now everyone seems to have the same mind set as everyone else, nobody really disagrees on anything (important) and it feels like the "charactter-scape" is incomplete.

I'm not saying you should alter any major characters' personalities based on my suggestions, but perhaps you could throw in or tweak a minor background character who seems rather disturbed by Heather and Neelix's relationship?

Oh man I've been up over 24 hours but let me see if I can reply to this... o_o

That is indeed a bone like crest over Veeno's head. It was mostly created for character design purposes over any real logic so that is my pure excuse for any designs ever not making much sense at this point. Veeno just is what he is.

But anyway, your concerns are understandable but I would like to point out that Ala doesn't particularly find Veeno attractive at all. Not to say she finds him hideous or disgusting, she just has no sexual attraction to him. It's purely one sided.

The only problem with your current concerns, is that I've not had much chance to introduce the opinions of more characters or even introduce all my characters. In the case of Heather and Neelix, everyone except Ala and Sniffs, has only seen Neelix have a one sided attraction towards Heather. So obviously no one, not even Neelix, knows that Heather is forming an attraction to him and even her, herself is having an internal conflict with what she is feeling about that (God I hope that made sense, that felt like a cluster fuck of confusion).

Since Ala herself is in an interspecies relationship, she obviously would not have negative feelings towards them. Since she also works in the clubs, she is going to see and deal with it on a daily basis so she'd have to have some tolerance towards it.

Veeno is more open minded. He finds Ala beautiful like we might find a swan beautiful or a horse elegant. Of course that doesn't automatically mean we want to have sex with it just because we find it beautiful, but since Ala is an intelligent species that he likes and she has a similar form that Veeno would find attractive, he has no issues perusing sexual relations with her. But with Veeno I have him being a bit more open where he'd willingly spend a night with Ala and then perhaps spend the following night with one of his own species or another species entirely. I'm not trying to imply Veeno would find every female attractive, for example: he thinks Heather is pretty but he hasn't shown any interest in her but of course that could simply be out of respect for Neelix. But I'm just saying that Veeno is pretty open and use to being around other species that the concept doesn't bother him at all. As long as he has an interest in them and a general attraction, he doesn't care what species they are.

Umm... what else.. Oh well, Sniffs. No opinion from him was ever given. He only stated what he observed so that kind of rules him out.

So basically I've not had much of chance to explore other character's opinions. Even for example, everyone either tolerates Heather so far, or is at least nice to her. I don't want to bring in a Mr. Obvious "I hate her." type character because I think it would come off too intentional and forced, but it would be kind of obvious that not everyone would appreciate Neelix bringing her into the workplace, for example. The point is, that even if there are protesters or people who just simply disliked it, they might not be the type to judge or say anything. It could be like a "Don't judge me and I wont judge you." attitude or "I don't give a shit what you wanna fuck." *shrug* But I mean, so far I've only really explored four characters (I don't think Muora or Sniffs count yet), and at least three of them for sure have no issue with interspecies relationships, so that's hardly enough info to really have such a thought out concern over this? Regardless, I enjoy conversation, too. Just knowing you cared enough to have the concern in the first place is a complement in itself. c:

One thing I am planning is having certain characters point out how awkward a relationship would be between two individuals (size, shape, etc..) and also bring into play what is pure fetish over genuine interest in the individual, regardless of outward appearance.

But this is crazy long and I hope what I said made sense; I'm totally out of it. :sleep:

Hmm. I thought maybe some of the engineering crew might have said something, but you're right you didn't really focus on them. I wasn't saying you needed an "obvious hater" but perhaps someone who subtly seemed uncomfortable with it might have been a good idea.

Still you raise several valid arguments, which you expressed well enough. ;) Especially concerning Veeno's frame of mind... I didn't think he was just interested in a one night stand with Ala, I thought he was interested in a more long-term relationship with her.

As for you not having time to flesh out other characters, I guess you're right now that I look back on it. I just feel like I've been reading your story for much longer than I have, even though you've only recently started writing it out. There's something about your universe that sucks a reader in! I forget how little of it I've seen.

Perhaps but I'd want it to come off natural. Since at the moment I have nothing planned, I don't wanna just randomly stick in a comment or make up a character just to have someone point out a different opinion. As realistic as it might be for different opinions to be common in a society like that, it wouldn't be realistic for me to randomly toss it in for the sake of being realistic! =p

I just wanted to at least point out a tolerance level in the community. Fights and disagreements are common, sure but at the same time, you have such a wide variety of people coming together in one place that it would just be proper etiquette (and even for the safety of yourself) to not just randomly tell someone that they disagree with what they're doing. But the more I think about it, I think I do have a future scene I could bring up an individual having a disgust for interspecies relationships. But even still, I also want it to focus on people falling in love with one another because of who they are, not what they are.

Only being with your own species because it feels strange or awkward to be with another, can seriously limit a person to finding their true love. No different than location and/or age. For example, marrying your high school sweetheart just feels so secluded to me when your soul mate could be half way around the world. But that's just my personal opinion. I guess the more differences there are for a couple to overcome, the more believable and strong their love appears for me. But then again, it could just look like some strange fetish depending on the circumstances, lol.

Things between Ala and Veeno are complicated. I think bringing up a discussion about it in the story would really help explain things better. Veeno's not ready for commitment (or at least doesn't think he is), right now but since Ala didn't fall for his charms, and he's not the type to give up so easily, they sort of formed this friendship where they like to pick on one another.

Heh, I feel the same way at times. I was breaking up the events in the story to make sure I knew how many days had passed and when I brought it to *H-Falcon's attention, he was surprised since I've been working on this for the past few months now but since I'm writing the events on a daily basis, only a little over a week of time has passed in the story, which doesn't feel like much at all. But thank you so much. Believe me, I am really glad to know that the universe has sucked you in and you're enjoying it. :heart:

Valid points, all. It's not something that can just be thrown in but I"m glad you have something planned in the future. Even if it's just one passing comment it will help.

Sounds like the "relatonship" with Ala and Veeno should be interesting. I really enjoy quirky dynamics like that.

H-Falcon Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2011
I wanted to address this. If my words come off a bit harsh it is only because of the nature of them. It isn't anything against you personally.

You are thinking in a very limited minded view. You are seeing it from your own views. It isn't going to apply to someone who is born into what they are born into. Your views of thinking someone is going to "want" to always be with their own species or find beauty only in their own kind is a very limited view. I am surprised actually that you didn't have a more "opened" minded view on the matter. Although you do mention some issues where you are stating otherwise and giving examples contrary to what you are saying so at least you realise that is is somewhat a limited view.

What I am not understanding on your view points is a lot of how it comes off. For example Ala is only supposed to find beauty in streamlined and slender beings because that is how her species is? Really? How so? If you are never taught anything about only liking your own kind why? Or if no one says anything to you to influence you why would you grow up thinking any differently? Why would you suddenly think "I should only be with my own kind" or only find beauty in your own kind. For that matter again you are just throwing around assumptions. How do you know the Males of her species look anything like her? Who says they are slender and sleek? Again you are throwing in instinctual and or biological measures into your views. Who says an Alien species is going to have the same instincts or biological desires that humans do? It's all relevant to what you are seeing from your view. You are applying human nature and what you know to something that might not have any commonalities. (It might, but it also doesn't necessarily apply for sure.)

That is a VERY limited point of view.

I would think that if you grew up surrounded by vast cultures and differences why couldn't you see beauty in many things? Why would you be so limited? I don't get this logic of thinking... I really don't. I don't want to get into races and species and issues of cultural difference but your comment almost seems so limited that it almost comes off to me as someone saying everyone should always stay with their own kind, and that there would be no tolerance to cross-species relationships. Really? So we are placing our own bigoted ways of being flawed human beings and our intolerance and now reflecting that onto other races/species now? We are assuming because WE can't get over differences that other races/species wouldn't be able to? Ok...

Oh and for the record, it was never Stated that Ala finds anything attractive about Veeno or that she is even remotely interested. That doesn't mean he's going to stop trying though. :XD:

As for the comment about not everyone being "ok" with situations and having the same tolerance... It is still very early into the story. Only some characters have been established enough to even remotely know how they feel, so who is to say in future chapters something isn't going to happen with intolerance and or non agreements and different beliefs and such? You really shouldn't assume like this.

Also this might have been better in a note instead of leaving this in the comments section. Your first line of "There's something that's bothering me about your story, and please don't take this as criticism, just an honest desire for conversation" should have probably made it obvious it would be better suited as a Private Mesaage.

If I meant it as criticism, I would have sent it in a private note. However, I was seeking out an exchange of ideas and I wanted to do it publicly for a healthy exchange of ideas between writers.

I don't think I'm being closed-minded. I was just addressing what I thought might be an issue in Lady-Owl's story regarding her characterization. And I did state that it was likely individuals living in such a diverse home could be very liberal and open-minded. She addressed my concerns and her answers satisfied by questions.

:iconh-falcon:
H-Falcon Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2011
Yes you did state they might be very liberal and open minded but then you also added about instincts and having a desire/drive to be only with their own kind. To me which seems very limited in thinking. Again approaching it it would seem from a point of view you are familiar with. A limited example would be for example to imply that someone who is not of Japanese orientation to not find beauty in a person of Japanese orientation and only find beauty in their own oreientation? This is part of the limited view I was speaking of. Granted that is a limited view in itself because I am comparing difference in cultures and ethnics and not a completely different species, but then again if these beings are used to being around all kinds of others, why should it be different? I just felt how you stated what you did came off rather... well, not the best thought out. As if to imply that a diverse culture of Aliens would all just want to be with their own kind and or not find beauty in something that wasn't their own speices. (again my words are coming off very limited. But at the moment I do not know how else to state them).

I just don't see that being the case. Otherwise those species that are going to be so close minded among each other are going to be recluse and or perhaps treated as such. Now this doesn't mean of course that there wouldn't be individuals (or groups or organizations) that would of course be all for the mentality of "Be with you're own Kind!" etc. But I still don't think it would be a vast majority. In fact I'd like to believe in a more civilized era/place it would be in the minority. Perhaps it's just wishful thinking about our own limits and intolerance I see in Humanity... I don't know. Oh well.

:iconjzlobo:
JZLobo Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2011  Hobbyist Writer
No, you misunderstand me. What I was saying was that those species would be biologically hardwired to mate with their own kind to propagate their species. All creatures have that drive. It isn't the be-all end-all force driving the urge to mate, but that's the primary one. Just like there are plenty instances in nature of animal hybrids resulting in cross-species matings, but the primary portion of animal offspring consist of "pure" species.
Reply
:iconh-falcon:
H-Falcon Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2011
No I understood you. Maybe I just don't fully agree. Because although it is very sound and logical it is not to imply that perhaps a species would overcome that. Even on an instinctual level. Even this "Hardwired" that you talking about. It is logical and applies to all of nature as we know it. But that doesn't mean it would be different elsewhere or given time. For an example of that there are those of our own species who never even have the drive or the desire to have offspring. Yet others would argue it's hardwired into each of us. I don't accept that. Not as a "for sure" fact. Since time and time again even nature has shown that there will be differences. But this isn't the place to keep talking about it here. If you wish to discuss this further please use notes. This is not fair to Owl to spam up her comments like we are.

XD You know, when I was reading the artist comment, I read "Heather and Neelix" and "Helix." I don't know how I did that, even though I often do stuff like that. But it's funny because their fates are tangled with eachother, like a double Helix. Was that intentional? Regardless, it's perfect.

Poor Veeno! It's ok, I love him. And I just love that sly smile, it's so cute! He's just as charming as Neelix, but in a different way. ^.^
And Ala is so beautiful. No wonder why he loves her. :la: And the transparent nature of her fin! :la: Makes me think of a jellyfish-squid, but in a good way. I love aquatic animals, I really do. I don't know if it's because I'm dead tired or if it's my funky monitor, but the colours are just dancing off her! Maybe it's an illusion caused by the bright background behind her and the slightly darker background around everything else.
I'm really liking that you're doing more stuff. It makes my dull day just that much better, expecially if they're bright and colourful like this one! XD

Heh and I'm glad you like Ala, too! I really like aquatic animals, myself and I'm just happy I finally got her down where I'm comfortable with her colors and everything. New characters with complicated flashy skin can be a bit tricky at first.

And inspiration and creativity are running a bit rampant; I finish one drawing and the next day I'm sketching out a new idea or picking up an old concept I started months ago. =p

You know - i almost love your opening comment more than the picture. (ROFL)

I must admit - i've preferred some of your other drawings of Veeno - especially the one of them and neelix on the sofa. maybe it's just me. (Shrugs) The pose could do with a bit of work, but it's ot too shabby. It's a difficult one to pull off. I know I still can't make up my mind if he's wearing a hat/helm or if it's part of his skull. >.<

And then we come to Ala. Her name as slender as she.
... (is ogling her almost as badly as Veeno)
Can you make her any more adorable? I adore the way the background lighting shines through her fin and the lights glinting off her skin. Makes her look almost ethereal. (damn spelling). I didn't realise she only had three digits on her hand, but it still makes for an interesting sight, the way she's playing with the glass. You can so see she is toying with Veeno just as much as he's trying to play her. that cookey grin of hers just makes it.
:D She's so prettyfull!

"You know - i almost love your opening comment more than the picture. (ROFL)"

I'll be honest, that came off real badly. I realize you're just trying to express your enjoyment but sometimes your words can come off pretty strong or even rather offensive if taken the wrong way.

I do still really love the drawing of Veeno and Neelix on the couch. My recent drawings of him before this one with Ala, were small and much quicker (and from odd angles) so I didn't get him down the way I wanted him, which is one reason I really wanted to do this picture and I made sure to study my original drawing of Veeno in depth to capture what I was originally going for with the character. Which is why I'm actually rather surprised by your comment since I thought it came out very well, if not better than the one of them on the couch. Despite the pose having some issues, but that is the issues I must deal with when changing things up half way through the drawing, sadly.

The part of his head is part of a bone like skull.

But thank you for the comment and I'm glad you like Ala so much and enjoyed the colors and lighting.

Thanks for cleaning that up for me. I've never been able to decide.

I completely understand. I'm more curious to know what looks odd about him here to you? I do know in the last two recent pics of him, I ended up making his face more rounded and young looking, sorta chibi because I drew him so small on the paper. So I'm not sure if that is what you're referring to or not.

:iconlostkavi:
Lostkavi Featured By Owner Jan 28, 2011
Quite the contrary. In this picture of him, I think his face, certainly in profile, looks almost flat. no, wrong, his Jawline looks flat, his face looks sharp. If I may be so bold, I'd hazard a guess at what I'm percieving is that he has his head slightly canted away from the 'screen', giving a flatter, more acute perspective - but the lack of additional jaw (from the underside) is inhibiting that viewpoint. like an optical illusion.
Or maybe I'm just not looking at it in the right way, I'm not sure. i'm just guessing at perspectives here, I'm not sure what yours (or even mine) is totally.

:iconlady-owl:
Lady-Owl Featured By Owner Jan 28, 2011   General Artist
I think I understand. Since his head isn't titled (if I did do that, I'd show the underside of his jaw to help show that perspective, like you mentioned), the only thing I could think of to make it look more pronounced is to add darker shading under his jaw, on his neck area. It is darker under there but it might not be enough for you which is giving off that illusion you're seeing. Then again, could be the crappy scanner washing out my colors again. Sometimes my art looks really different on different monitors. :(
