EUTS Portraits: Muora by Lady-Owl EUTS Portraits: Muora by Lady-Owl

Muora came in second so here he is. Voting for the next character is currently open! Go vote and tell me who you want to see next!

I'm also behind on comments but I WILL reply to you! Been super busy working on these lately.



So yes, Muora. I love this picture. I've been staring at the line art for months wanting to eventually get around to a project like this.

I must admit, it took awhile to really get his design down and feeling natural and realistic. The bone plating on his face gave me a lot of problems when first designing it.

And yes... I know, not a full body picture or anything but I promise that will come. At least for now you can see his very cool (in my opinion, anyway) face.

One of my first drawings done on Smooth Bristol AND using Prismacolor Markers as a base. Results look pretty damn good if I do say so myself.

---------------

Muora: ( Pronounced: Muh Your Ah )
Species Population on Station: Only one.
Age: 46 in Human years
Occupation: Club Owner among other things...
Family: Ala (Blood family on Homeworld)
Current address: Second Disc, Entertainment District, his personal clubs.
Hobbies: Ship collecting and racing, enjoying his lavish clubs, many other unknown things...
Theme Song: [link]

Bio:

    Muora is an extremely mysterious individual.

    Very little people know about his past. He came to the station well before Neelix was even born and has been running the station's most popular and luxurious clubs for longer than anyone can remember.

    He has wealth and power that make him one of the top real leaders (the Overseer being a joke to them) of the station. Each leader is in charge of one of their own specialties: Drugs, prostitution, slavery, weapons, etc...
    Muora is in charge of the best entertainment available on the station (dancing, girls, etc) but his main operations are not well known outside a particular circle of individuals. Many assume he is a crime lord because of this, but he'd be the first one to dismiss that claim.

    His most prized possession is his dear lover, Ala. She is his slave, by law and under other unknown circumstances, but he treats her as an equal to himself and loves her more than anything. Not everyone is aware that Ala is so special to him as they assume she is no more important than any of his other girls... until they mess with her... Some have been reported to have never been seen of or heard from again... no one knows what happened to them, but many assume it wasn't pleasant.

    Muora uses his large size, powerful strength, reputation, and intimidating demeanor as a way to demand respect. This has worked for him for many years, as no one would be stupid enough to mess with him. He has made an example out of many. No one fucks with Muora, his clients, his girls, or his property.

    His species is more secluded and solitary and prefer to stay around their homeworld which is why it is extremely rare to find them out in Concord space, let alone so far out at this station. It is unknown why he left his homeworld other than to a very small few.


Random Facts:
- Muora owns three clubs on the station that he rebuilt from the ground up. All three are connected as a giant circle with his and Ala's personal quarters being in the center.
- He has exotic and expensive tastes: His club's decor, the clothing on his girls, his DJ, his ships, etc... are fine examples of this.
- He has a fondness for both Heather and Neelix
- It is extremely rare, but on occasion Muora bonds with individuals he deems worthy, considering them apart of his 'clan'.
- Muora's species has a longer lifespan than most.

----------------------

Notes: If there is anything I forgot to mention or something you would like to know, just let me know and I'll see about adding it unless it is plot relevant for future chapters. Species names are still being decided so... uh.. yeah.. OTL

It explains why he commands respect and the authority he carries himself with. But I want to know more about him he's so intimidating but not evil  I feel like he's nice but can't afford to let others know it unless they're willing to look. I mean he's not what I expected at all.

How much longer?

Awesome pic, love it. <3

I get an image of someone sitting in an fortune-teller's tent.
" and you meet A dark handsome stranger"
Muora would fit right in that description, like fist in an eye.

lol, thank you for letting me know! I was actually aware of it, since a week or two ago I added the song to my favs on youtube... then the uploader removed it. :iconwthplz:

But for future reference (in case it happens again and I somehow forget the name of the song), the song is called: End of the Line by Daft Punk. It's possible it could be tricky to find since it is an unreleased version.

I hate that when it happens! It takes a chunk out of my playlists when I go try to listen to them every once in a while.
I took a moment to check out the music. Very cool! I don't think I would have ever come across it on my own. I like this as the theme you chose for him.

I have to say I love Muora's design. Not quite what I envisioned him to look like from reading the story you created, but I have to say he looks quite impressive. From one of your other drawings, he look's actually smaller than I thought he was, but is still quite large! Sometimes I have a warped sense of perception, Idk o0 I can see why Ala fell for him. =3

That said, your use of colors is amazing. <3 The background reminds me of what I thought one of his clubs lights would look like, like he's standing in his own private quarters and I can pretend to hear the beat of the music. His eyes look very gentle despite his intimidating form. He gives me a vibe that if your friends with him, you can see his gentle side, but mess with him and you wish you weren't ever born, which seems like what you were going for so yay! I'm eager to see more art of him, as well as your other creations. =3

Heh heh, I'm always curious to know what the readers envisioned, since it's obvious everyone imagines things differently and I'm not overly descriptive of the characters. >_>;

If you mean from the Sketch Dump, he is a bit smaller in those sketches as that was still early planning stages. If you are referring to The Walk pic with the space background, I kinda think the background distracts from their heights a little; he appeared a lot larger to me when I had a more simple background. ;n;

Thank you so much! I'm very glad I was able to create a piece that reflected his personality and environment, as it's very important to me to get things like that down the best I can. More art of him is coming. I've yet to focus on his relationship with Ala, so I plan on doing something with that, hopefully soon! c:

Ooooh my! :iconshockplz: Muora is DEFINATELY handsome!
Hsi wu: HEY!!!!
Me *Coughs* Well....not as handsome as MY MAN of course! ^_~ Sorry dear!
Muora *Walks in, crosses arms, and growls* YOU GOTTA PROBLEM WITH ME, buddy?
Hsi wu *Hisses* NO, -I-, on the other just don't like it when my LOVE *Points to me, and smiles gently* calls ANYONE ELSE handsome OTHER THAN ME!!!!
Me *Gulps and rushes between Hsi wu and Muora* ALRIGHT YOU TWO, that's enough!
*Turns to Lady Owl, all while trying to keep Muora, and Hsi wu strangling each other*
YOu REALLY did a great job on Muora's design, and all the details of his crest and facial features.
Also I love the background colors, they really gives Muora that Don't-Mess-With-Me attidtude! :D
I hope that you have a great and blessed day and may the Lord keep you and your family safe!
Jesus Loves You!

Could you please NOT role play on here. Specially with characters you have no right speaking for.

You could have given your compliments without the need to fuck about and particularly it is NOT appreciated taking someone else's characters and role playing them or speaking for them.

If you like the character so much, you'd think you wouldn't role play them stupidly.

Also what is with the preaching? There is no need to preach to people. Specially when they did not ask for it. Keep that to people you know and such. This isn't a church.

Yes I know my words might seem harsh. But before you respond being all emotional and upset and or butt hurt about it seriously think about the things I've said. There was no need for this behavior. A simple comment about how much you appreciate and or like the subject matter would have sufficed. Instead of this role playing bullshit and or the preachy stuff.

Seriously...

H-Falcon Featured By Owner Sep 10, 2011
It is good you wont role-play here anymore. This isn't the place. Specially when just thinking it is alright just just use someone Else's characters and just play them out however you want. That is really disrespectful right on the artist/writers page.

As for the not preaching and wishing someone a good day. Allow me to show you.

This is what you said.

"I hope that you have a great and blessed day and may the Lord keep you and your family safe!
Jesus Loves You!"


Now had you just said "I hope that you have a great and blessed day" THAT could be considered wishing someone a good day.

However adding in the additional part of "and may the Lord keep you and your family safe!
Jesus Loves You!"

IS being preachy. Going around telling people Jesus loves you is enforcing your believes on someone. What if they don't believe in Jesus? What if they believe in the Dalai lama or Buddhism? There are many religions out there. Maybe people don't all need to or want to hear that some other god or religious beliefs loves them.

Does that make more sense? Wishing someone a good day and telling them may the lord protect them and Jesus loves them IS being preachy. Period.

Well even so, no matter what what religion a person believes, to me, it's my personal way of saying hello and another thing I"M NOT enforcing ANYBODY to believe what I believe; I would never do that. I'm not that type of person. My friends on here know what I mean by saying "I hope that you have a great and blessed day. May the Lord keep you and your family safe." By me saying that, it makes them feel good and you knows, it might have made theyr day better.
I'm not here to enforce anyone what I believe, I'm just here to appriciate art, get some new inspiration on drawing, and just be friendly. What I say at the end of my comments may sound "peachy" to you, but I'm not going change what I say, sorry.

You are perfectly entitled to say whatever you want and believe whatever you want. However if someone is asking you not to say something in their presence or home or place then you could/should respect that.

If you cannot say something nice here about the artists content without throwing religion into the equation then don't say anything at all.

It is sad that you have to miss out on making a nice comment but if you cannot hold back on preaching (and yes going around HAVING to say that without just saying something nice IS a form of preaching. You might not be doing so directly but you are preaching that certain set of believes and religion). If you are unable to contain yourself, restrict yourself and or be respectful of someone else's wishes then it is for the best to say nothing at all.

You know most people are ABLE to go around and just say something nice without giving any indication of their religious beliefs and whatnot. If you are unable to then I am sorry. Maybe you should try saying "have a nice day" to people without throwing in that other part that might come off overly forced because you just feel like you HAVE to all the time. :: Shrugs ::

Your beliefs are yours. No one can take that away from you. NOT saying a simple few words is not going to change anything on your part. However if you are unable to or not wanting to that is your choice. Simply do not comment here anymore then if you cannot contain yourself. Thank you.

Again im surprised by how different an image I had developed of him before this piece. Pleasantly surprised however! He looks great, and its cool reading these bios about the characters too. Knowing more about characters makes me look at them from a much fairer point of view. Cant wait for the last ones! :D

Amazing~ I Love Muora already :). I love the way you drew him and he looks exactly how I always imagined him to be, fierce, scary-looking yet has the noble, kingly look about him. I also had no idea that those he is fond of are part of his "clan." Like some family.

Neelix the wary step-son

Heather the newest addition to his family and the "daughter" or "niece" that Muora favors.

Veeno a bit of an outcast because he keeps messing with Ala.

Ala his love and equal, kinda' like a Queen~

Everyone else I'm not sure about.

'Ehhh...Neelix...I am going to give you and offer...you can't refuse." *pinches two claw fingers together and shakes it slightly to enunciate speech*
