Ordering Out - Lok Durd by Kweh-chan Ordering Out - Lok Durd by Kweh-chan
Another group from the magazine cover. I've never drawn Lok Durd, before and I've been meaning to draw him FOREVER; he was actually a lot of fun to do, and I really enjoyed drawing this particular piece and adding all the little details. On the platter are pylat bird eggs, chewgrubs (two of his favourites, according to official data), mushrooms, and some jogan fruits.

I like how his little droids look fat as well.

Interesting that while the rest of him is chubby, his face didn't fill out. I assume this is some quirk of Nemodian biology?

His data says "face swollen from enormous appetites"...but maybe? It would seem to me that this part of Neimoidian biology isn't terribly different from human biology.

He looks as if he's motioning to order a double portion of everything! You watch that blood pressure, Lokkie...
Did you have trouble drawing the little droids? They look potentially finicky to get down right with all those little joints! (I have trouble drawing anything mechanical.)

This is a bit irrelevant, but one random thing I thoroughly enjoy drawing and seeing drawn is feasts and food. I love details and this really is a pleasure to see, more so because it's actual Neimoidian-related food... The teeny mushroom slices, delicate (and really expensive-looking) quail-like eggs and of course the jogan fruits all look tasty. (I shall avoid commenting on the tastiness of grubs, even though I bet they taste just like chicken. ;p ) I love the colour of the fruit in particular, but it all looks very attractively set up on the platter. I'm sure he'll be more than happy to devour this meal. :D

P.S. One thing I enjoyed reading in Shadow Hunter was how Coruscant had restaurants serving Neimoidian cuisine, makes me wonder what such establishments looked like!

Hahaha!!! I never even realised that! I think he's just supposed to be going about his business, as a general/scientist, with a handy plate of food nearby, but he really DOES look like that XD!
The LEP droids weren't too hard to draw; not as easy as Neimoidians, of course, but not terribly difficult.

OMG, you too?! I don't know what it is, but I've always enjoyed seeing and drawing little food as well. I still have a collection, somewhere, of mini toy food I saved from my childhood...I may have to set up a feast table for my 12" Neimoidians XD. But thank you! The food was probably my favourite part to draw and colour. You won't catch me trying any of those chewgrubs, but I've always thought jogan fruit looked delicious!

I loved that part too! It added some great information for my report, and it reminds me a little of New York City and London, where you get all these cultural restaurants and houses (including an Eesti Maja for Estonians), for even the most obscure of places. Just added a little realism to the canon. Also, I found it really interesting that Neimoidians enjoy "agaric ale"...agar is what you grow mould cultures on, and the Neimoidian diet is mould- and fungus-based. 8D

Oh, I am sure he is just going about his business, but, really, can you expect the poor fellow to concentrate on scientific matters with only one portion of every snack he could think of? :D
Yesss, me too! :mwahaha: I seriously adore toy food and miniatures! I have kept my toy food collection as well. :highfive: I am only sorry that miniatures craftworks are sometimes so expensive, otherwise I'd for real be collecting those.
I would love to see a feast for your figures! That sounds like a fun photoshoot!

Yes, it reminded me of huge cities and the multicultural cuisine that is available there - a great way to show some 'ordinary life' feeling to Coruscant.
I'd love to try that ale! I also love mushrooms so maybe I'd not find too bad a time at a Nem restaurant? There's actually a guy who really brews 'agaric ale', or rather a honeyed cream ale inspired by Neimoidians. You can find the recipe somewhere here: [link]

LOL, of course not! XD

I used to make miniature food, when I was experimenting with sculpey, a few years ago. Nothing nearly as detailed and elaborate as what you see on DA, but still fun. They might make fun charms, if nothing else.

Oh my word!!! I don't drink at all (I hate the taste of alcohol), but I might just try that agaric ale if I get the chance. It might go well with my Neimoidian-inspired meal I created. 8D

Oh, wow, I did not know you used to make sculpey miniatures! :omg: I'd love to see what you created, I'm sure they look great if I judge by your other crafted works!

I only like the taste dark beer myself (well, the more like the bitter foam on top, actually), but would love to try out this beer, too, it sounds quite interesting! I am intrigued by this Neimoidian-inspired meal you mentioned, care to elaborate? :D

Thank you! I'll see if I can find them, as I'm sort of in a good news/bad news situation. Good news is I'm in Colorado where I made them; bad news is I have no idea idea where they are and, for all I know, they may be packed away. I can make some more easily enough...I could even make some for you, if you wanted.

LOL! I always thought the foam on top would be sweet...no idea why, really.

A couple of years ago, I designed a three-course meal that sounds like something Neimoidians would eat; feel free to make it if you want:

Starter: Grilled asparagus with blue-cheese dressing and minced seared portabellos.
Main: Osso bucco with portabello risotto and eggplant ratatouille.
Dessert: Panna cotta with passion fruit sauce and assorted exotic fruits.

While this sounds incredibly Italian, I actually see Neimoidian cuisine as French in theory, Oriental in practice, and a tiny bit Indian, in spices. I could go on, but it'd take too long - maybe in the next note 8D

Oh, I hope you will be able to find them, it is neat that you might have a chance, at least by virtue of your location.
Oh, no, no, you don't have to go making a new batch for me unless you intend to work with sculpey again, I did not wish to inconvenience you! I'm just really interested in your work as you make adorable plushies, so I expect that your miniatures are sweet, too!

Wow, this meal actually sounds scrumptious! :heart: I am actually seriously tempted to try out the starter or main one day (I do not know I'd risk making panna cotta of my own)...
I can see Neimoidian cuisine as very diligently prepared and rather gourman, and I agree with your idea for it - a bit of Oriental and Indian touch to French especially with the mushrooms and frogs and similar foodstuffs Nems use) sounds interesting and plausible.

Oh, and belated thank you for reading the notes - I did not know whether you had gotten them. And thanks for accepting my request for Rune, I do hope he isn't too much to ask for! ^^;
