EUTS Portraits: Neelix by Lady-Owl EUTS Portraits: Neelix by Lady-Owl

The Portrait Series has come to a close... for now anyway. There is still one main character not yet introduced that will get a portrait later on.

Thank you so much for your participation in this. It's been so much fun and you guys are great. :heart:



And finally... Neelix. Crap, I was late on finishing him.

He got more for a portrait since like Heather and Ala, everyone already knew what he looked like. I also tried to include more info in his bio.. sorta. A bunch of things I am keeping to reveal in the story.

This pic is actually VERY old. Like 2006-2007 old (notice his little tooth! I never draw that anymore D: )? It was a sketch I did forever ago referencing a pose I wish I still had but I had to rework it a bunch since I've gotten better with proportions over the years and Neelix has a longer torso and arms compared to a human.

Anyway, rambling. Too many sexy thoughts while working on this. Gave me some good ideas to add on to some of my future scenes... oh I hope you're ready for the good stuff cause oh boy is it coming. :devilish: I'm hoping I wont shock you guys too much but I fear I will. Oh well.

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

Neelix: ( Pronounced/Rhymes with: Helix )
Species Population on Station: Very rare. One other resident on station.
Age: 35 in Human years.
Occupation: Head Mechanic
Family: Small family, all off station.
Current address: Medium sized quarters, outer rim of living district so he could have a private hanger which is connected to his quarters via a thin hallway.
Hobbies: Workaholic: Always working on something whether at work or working on his personal custom ship.
Theme Song: [link] (this has been his theme song for ages... I can't not listen to it without thinking of Neelix. A tribute to my inspiration for my story: Titan A.E. c: )

Bio:
    Neelix is a quiet loner type and is way too use to life as a bachelor. His life style and living environment reflect this as he is almost never home other than to sleep and sometimes eat. He is overly passionate about his job and ship to the point that it was very difficult to get him away from his work... (Veeno struggled with this constantly) until Heather came into his life.

    He's incredibly good at what he does with many years of experience under his belt. Because of this, the Overseer of the station pushed Neelix into becoming the head mechanic. Neelix wasn't too happy about this as he had no interest nor felt qualified to be a leader; However, over time he saw the advantages of being the 'boss' as he could do things his way and found that having a competent team was more convenient than working alone. But even though Neelix is technically in charge at the workshop, he treats most everyone as an equal and leaves others in charge when he is away.

    Neelix hand picks his team members and is clever and resourceful in being able to see each individual for the unique abilities they have to offer. Therefore, he has become a little picky as he isn't just looking for good mechanics for his team, but special characteristics as well.

    Despite seeming all about work, he is actually very friendly and playful when he wants to be which is a side his co-workers don't get to see very often. Though, now that Heather has come into his life, he has become a lot more laid back and cheerful which has caused his co-workers a bit of stress as they have come to rely on him too much.

    Aside from getting back on track at work, Neelix's feelings toward Heather grow stronger everyday. Feelings for her that are stronger than any he has ever felt for anyone else. He worries constantly if she might not feel the same...


Random Facts -
- Neelix has never been on the surface of a planet.

- His goggles have a few special capabilities such as night vision and infrared. An on board computer allows them to identify different types of metal compositions as well as identifying shapes and density of objects so he can more clearly make out the innards of a ship.

- Scents have an important bonding role for his people and for this reason, Heather's scent brings him comfort.

- Neelix and Veeno have been best friends for many years and would practically do anything for one another. They even have full access to each others quarters and know where everything is kept. Veeno in particular treats Neelix's quarters as his second home.

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

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

Want to tell us about the various roommates Neelix had that cemented in the realization that he was different. That made him realize that, as loneley as he was for companionship, that it was not obsession, but something else that bound him to his work. The things that made him alien even among his own people? Alone in a crowd, a backdrop of dancing partying peoples, nobody to talk to, cause nobody is interested in an idle conversation about hull metalergy and proper placement of interstructure sheer pins, and there is really nothing else to talk about, especially for someone not playing the latest game downloads from beta9.

Yea. So, what's the whole part of him never stepping foot on planet? Also, where's the rest of his race, if you don't mind me asking.

Well, when you're born and raised in space and it's all you've known and everything you need to live and be comfortable is available on ships and stations, there is little need for an individual such as himself, to go to a planet other than for maybe vacation purposes.

His species is around, it's just that the station he lives on is rather remote (and run down) from a lot of the main society.

:la: Love it! And yeah, I saw the little bit of tooth. But it's a good texture IMO. And I can see how much you've grown in your style. Not that your old is bad, just saying I can see that you've grown. =)
I'm not going to say much right now. I'm really tired. =.= But you know how I feel about your work. :heart:

Ohw Neelix! :love:
I really like that he looks a bit more human than some of your other aliens, so it's a bit easier to relate to Heather and the feelings and all :ohnoes:

Lady-Owl Featured By Owner May 7, 2011   Digital Artist
Aww, heh heh. n_n

Yeah, I agree even though his face isn't human at all. XD But it does make it a bit easier for me to envision the special sweet romantic moments between them so I can write them out better if the character isn't too alien in design. Like kissing for example: If he had a beak or something, that would be rather difficult. =p

He does look a tad different, but if you ask me, ten-15 years younger. ;P Cute, teenage Neelix. XD (squee) And his theme song is damn catchy too. I can SO see this playing while he works. Heck, it could even be cming out of Gale's headphones.

Haha... oh crap I didn't want him to come off that young. I am not even sure what is making him look so young in this drawing. Falcon says he thinks it's because his snout looks shorter but that was only because it was more of a front view angle so I dunno! OTL

Maybe the goggles are covering too much of his eyes so they come off looking more round and young. *shrug*

Lol that is exactly what I was going for. Back 2006 I was doodling images of him welding and working while I listened to that song. XD

I reckon that his snout looks a bit shorter. I'm guessing you weren't so good at working with depth then - so he looks a bit kiddy. I think it's cute.

Love it!

Funny that you mention the sexy thing...cause that's exactly what I was thinking when looking at this! ;)

*stares at the treasure trail* :drool: :drool: :drool:

Such a cute picture of him!

And btw, I think I've mentioned this to you a couple of times before, but it always blows me away when you put him down as 35 because I see him much younger than that. Hehe. But you know me well enough to know that age doesn't matter much to me. :)

Great job once again sweetie! :hug:

Lady-Owl Featured By Owner May 7, 2011   Digital Artist
Lol Pooka, you're gonna love the next chapter and drawing of him. XD

All kinds of sexy going on and glad you like that treasure trail, too. :heart:

Hmm, it could be this picture. Others have mentioned he comes off looking more young here but I dunno. Depends on if you're talking about mentality or looks? I personally know a handful of individuals in their 30's and they don't come off as old looking at all, quite young, actually both in appearance and mentality (they act like a bunch of goof balls often). I mean hell, Adam Sandler (who I think is a cutie btw) is 44 and he comes off as someone in his 30's to me. So I just don't know. :dead: Age can be confusing sometimes.

But I think older guys are sexy so I wanted Neelix to have that big age gap with Heather.

And thank you very much, Pooka! :heart:
