Neimoidian Mother and Infant by Kweh-chan Neimoidian Mother and Infant by Kweh-chan
Oh my LORD, I worked for-bloody-ever on this one!

I know this is extremely socially incorrect. Not only do Neimoidians give birth to multiple young, but they don't even raise them until they're seven, and out of the grub hatcheries...but I've been wanting to do something like for a couple of weeks. I was inspired by a picture I found on Google of a Sullustan mother and baby, and I knew I would have to do a Neimoidian version. Besides, mother and child is such a beautiful, precious, even holy image...although I don't know how safe a bet it is to wear a hat with dangly bits like that around a baby.

I'm enjoying this new colouring style; I'll still probably cell-shade every now and then; however, I like that I can sort of add "texture" with this. I've also started playing with overlays...and certainly paying more attention to backgrounds.

Things may be done differently in Neimoidian culture...but don't ever say that a Neimoidian mother doesn't love her children. I WANT A NEIMOIDIAN BABY!!! (you listening Senator Dod???)

I don't really know what a Neimoidian is... (looks like an alien, haha) but I appreciate the idea though; the representation of a mother with her progeny. :D Gives another point of view than the human one, another point of view of the motherhood... I am still pretty curious to know what's behind her in grey? A window or something like that?

She could be a Duros, maybe? They actually take care of their young and a\re generally a nicer species. 


Lovely picture anyway.

Nope! She's a Neimoidian. I drew her as such...there's no way with her physical features she's a Duros...

Thank you!

Ah, I thought they were pretty much the same species with only cultural differences...
