Neimoidian Father's Day by Kweh-chan Neimoidian Father's Day by Kweh-chan
A quick father's day card (pardon the blank space - it was for text).

Despite all the issues I've had with  my father for the past few years, I still love him more than most people, and I'm glad to have him as my father. He is one of the smartest, most worldly, most fun, and to an extent, most open-minded people I know. I do not exaggerate when I say that, as an ambassador, he has left his mark on the world, opened up relations between countries (truefax!), and made it a slightly better place. Happy Father's Day!

And before I get messages about this, I KNOW that Neimoidians put their children in grub hatcheries! Dear Force, people, I live and breathe these beings, do you think I don't know this?! Put your knowledge on hold for just a microsecond and enjoy a cute father and child scene!

(in other news, I officially received my Master's Degree in astrophysics on Friday :D)

Maybe there are Neimoidian parents out there that wouldn't get a visit from CPS-unfortunately, they're doubtless a minority amongst their kind.
Anyhow, nice job here.

Cute! ...and who's to say ALL Neimoidians EVERYWHERE put their kids in grub hatcheries? They're individuals like everyone else and may have their own ideas about childrearing, the EU's efforts to turn each alien race into a hive mind consisting of one single culture which never changes and is always good or always evil notwithstanding.

And this can even be explained without altering the EU's own perception of Neimoidians.

This guy for example could just be, like, I dunno, one of a group of Neimoidians from a colony planet where doing things a certain specific way isn't enforced as much as on their homeworld. And, say, these Neimoidians decided to bond with their children instead of banishing them to grub hatcheries until they come out as really surly teens. The Neimoidians need not even have an altruistic reason for doing it initially, but a very Neimoidian-like one - specifically that they were bored and had nothing better to do and figured it'd be amusing and diverting to handle their kids themselves, and discovered, quite to their surprise, they very much enjoyed bonding with the little grubs, and so did it more often until it became genuine affection as opposed to just killing time.

Then when their children grow up, having experienced lots of affection and physical contact with their parents, they'll be inclined to treat their OWN offspring the same way, thus creating an entire generation of Neimoidian parents who don't put their kids into the hatcheries - some still might - again, they ARE individuals so despite how they were raised it's entirely possible some might be traditionalists, but I'm willing to bet at least a little more than half the Neimoidians raised this way would reject the traditional childrearing practices and raise their children themselves.

I'm sure that is probably the case. I'm going to be including a section like that in my Neimoidian report. The thing is, unless the female has given birth to just one or two offspring (average I would say is about 6-8), they would have to contend with very large families, which is difficult in every way imaginable. I do actually have a Neimoidian OC who was raised offworld by hand, because her parents didn't have a choice. They fled their homeplanet in a time of chaos, and could only take one of their offspring with them.

Great line art! your coloring is good but its a bit flat. try adding darker highlights, and don't be afraid to add brighter highlights as well. 
Here's a brilliant tutorial on coloring and tones. Its very helpful and it covers everything you need to know:D

The young Neimoidian is adorable, I really like the father's hat (it's awesome) and that bird is really pretty!

And congratulations!

Thank you very much! The hat is kind of a nod to my own father; the protrusion is a diplomatic ploov, and since my father is a diplomat (currently head of the British Deputy High Commission in Lagos, Nigeria) I thought I would include it. I wonder if he'll catch it...

And thank you! :D

I must admit that it is pleasantly surprising to even the paternal tenderness between Neimoidian. It is not just the bad guys that you see in the saga, they have different customs and values, but they are living beings who are also worth respet :)
