A Study of Neimoidians by Kweh-chan A Study of Neimoidians by Kweh-chan
Everything you ever wanted to know about Neimoidians, but were afraid to ask!

Oh how I've wanted to do this for so long! Educate the public about the differences between Neimoidains and Duros, and break out my Da Vinci! Additionally, this served as a FANTASTIC way to practice...whoever said to draw your own anatomy charts to improve your drawing skills is a flipping genius!

Everything you see here is based on canon; I get all of my information from Wookieepedia, the films, The Clone Wars, and various book sources, including the Visual Dictionaries, novels, etc.

(disclaimer: that's undetailed, scientific nudity right there; nothing sexual about it...therefore, no mature warning!)

Edit: OMG!!! This has been published on JediNews.co.uk!!! [link]

The detailing is incredible. I've never come across anyone so enamored with the neimodian species before :D. I don't think anyone has to worry about lack of information and reference for them.
It’s amazing that this chart was just a collective gathering of information you’ve gathered. I wish for every species or division of Star Wars there was at least one devoted fan so everything and character had its chance to shine in the spotlight, and you could always ask that person for info because they would like the expert. :iconlegaspplz:

Thank you very much!

LOL, I assure you that there's not one person on this planet who loves them more than me <3. I'd love to see some recognised, devoted fans too; it'd just be such an awesome reference and database to have! There are a couple of people I know who are like that (one person, in particular, for Quarrens), and whose judgement on a certain species I would trust infinitely. Oh man, if I could be that person for Neimoidians/Duros, I would die happily!

I think you already are lol. I would love to be that person for the Anakin + Padme relationship =P, specifically for art colleting though since I know I'm not the only big fan of them. I'm really curious if it's not too improper to ask, what was it about the species that grabbed your attention so much :)? Most fans are into the trilogy, bounty hunters, sith, Jedi or their own OC's.

Well thank you very much! And I certainly think you're well on your way to becoming the go-to person for Anakin and Padme. I think you have such a cool project going on, with drawing them together in every one of her dresses. For me, it's things like that which really show dedication, knowledge, and attention to detail!

Haha, not improper at all! I do have an OC (a couple, actually), which I've been working on for 8 years, but my focus is still the Neimoidians/Duros. It's such a long answer I have to give for you to get a good idea, so I'm going to direct you to a page on my (Neimoidian) website which answers that exact question in hte best way possible :D [link]

Wow that was quite the read. I’m not sure why but I read it all. I guess I really was curious! I think your story has a lot of elements that ring true for many SW fans. I know I could relate on a number of points. Coincidently but not surprisingly, Senate Spy was my very first CW episode too. I didn’t know it was a show up till then =P.
I never knew that much about Neimoidian society before. I wonder if what you find so interesting about turtles is also what draws you to the Neimoidians /Duros. I have to admit though, the term grub hatcheries cracks me up. I find it so funny they would refer to their own babies as "grub" :giggle:.


On an unrelated note, have you moved back to Israel? I remember when I was there. You’re so fortunate that you got to live in such a beautiful place.

Well, MAJOR kudos to you for sticking with it all the way through! I greatly appreciate it 8D. It's probably not a revolutionary story by any means, but it does concern an uncommon subject :D.

I never thought about my love of Neimoidians with respect to my love of turtles. I doubt it was an influencing factor, but I can draw some comparisons between the two loves. I definitely feel a sympathy for both, an absolutely cannot stand to see either harmed.

Unfortunately, I haven't been back yet, but I fully intend to someday. The four years I spent there were the most wonderful of my life, and not a day goes by where I don't think about it. When were you there? And why, for that matter? :D

It was my parents who dreamt of always visiting there. When we finally had the money our family went down there for about 2 weeks. It was the same day Israel was celebrating their 60th birthday. It was only a vacation but it was one of the best vacations I've ever had. We saw most of Israel but we opted for a personal tour guide instead of the packaged tours but he had a temper when driving on the road =P. Tiberias was my absolute favorite place. I think it was a combination of our hotel and view overlooking the Galilee. I took so many photos with my camera as well but I haven't uploaded them to Deviantart because my hardrive is not with me right now. One day I’ll post them, but just my best ones.

Oooh wow. That must have been amazing; I'm so envious! Despite living there for four years, I didn't actually see very much of the country. I was young and very reclusive, so I definitely missed out. The majority of what I saw was on school trips or trips I had to take with my family when people were visiting. I did the Dead Sea, the Negev, Eilat, Haifa (and the Baha'i Gardens), Bet Guvrin/Tel Maresha, and a couple of other cultural places. I plan on seeing as much as I can when I go back. It's amazing how skewed of image people seem to have of Israel being dangerous and all. We were there when the Iraq War began (we were even evacuated), and not once did I actually feel in any danger whatsoever. There's a town about 20 mins from where we lived and from the hill in the high street we could see the West Bank...again, I felt no danger. I felt safer walking home from school in Kfar Shmaryahu than I did in Colorado Springs XD

Haha! I don't blame your dad at all. To this day, my family and best friend (who IS Israeli) and I still joke about "Israeli driving."
