WOW, I think this has to be one of your best works! The characters are so well-rendered, and the alien sense of culture really comes through. The colors are great as well; I especially like Jao's color design.

I'm curious about the shape of Jao's eyes; do they enable him to see things that characters with "normal" eyes can't see, or are they just there to look cool?

I'm glad you asked XD For one, he has a much wider range of vision. I haven't decided on the actual pictures / coloration he himself sees, but his eyes are special. Rather than being as protected as our own, his rods and cones and all the good stuff that enables us to see is located on the film on the outside of the eye, which is pretty much just kept moist by the pulpy red stuff on the other side. Then, if his eye gets injured, this film regenerates after a little while. But sometimes they wear goggles, so they don't have to deal with the trouble ;)

Thanks! I'm glad you like it ^^!!

That's so cool...I never put that much thought into my characters' eyes. Then again, I've never invented any characters with really distinct eyes (save Vs), so I've never really had any reason to. Even with Vs, I didn't put any thought into the science of his eyes!

Well, the thought was more of a justification of an impractical 6th-grade alien design, hehe. It seems like all my good ideas come from making all my old bad ideas make sense ;) ;)

oh wow!! it turned out so wonderful! =D The details are fantastico! muy muy bueno! I love the textures of their clothing. so shiny. so pretty.

i especially love that Jao was saved from mulletdom.

I totally want to see him get up and fly through the air all Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon style. Fwaaaaaah! !!!!

and koda'd be like "fawwwwwaaaa"! and jump around. and Hidret would come out of no where and tackle her. Bet he's hiding in that extra cute barrel in the background. Sly man. Sly.

You should draw them next. The make-up "you look like a whore" pic. hehehe. *Big smile*

neways. love this. favorite. now.
