Just a quick something to get me back into a drawing mindset again. The past two months have been some of the worst ever in my life, and, naturally, my art and progress has suffered a bit. I have summer break coming up shortly, and I greatly apologise to everyone STILL waiting for their request, commission, or art trade. I intend to get a lot of art done this summer, so please just bear with me for now.
I originally just wanted to do a few "chibi" style Neimoidians from Episode I, but I thought "what the hell?" and decided to go the whole nine yards and include Episodes II and III, and TCW. A lot of people have asked me, over the years, the identity of certain Neimoidians in both my artwork and in Star Wars...so, hopefully this will help 8D. I might even do an EU expansion to this, later.
Just a few things to point out:
First off, I have actually NOT mislabeled Mik Regrap; it's actually Wookieepedia which is wrong. The source naming Mik Regrap is "Dressing a Galaxy," and in the images, the Neimoidian identified as Mik Regrap is NOT the one with the blue hat ploov...s/he's actually the other one! Which means, yes, I have two incorrect pieces of artwork, one of which is now in the Belgian archive of literature...woo.
Secondly, while this isn't technically official, Tey How, in Episode I, is the Neimoidian in the beginning of the film who likes ventilation shafts; Sil Unch is the one at the END of the film who tells Daultay that the ship is losing power. This Neimoidian has a distinctly deeper voice than that of Tey How and even pronounces words differently. I've therefore concluded that they must be two different Neimoidians.
Thirdly, I don't even for a second buy into the whole "Rune Haako in Episode II" thing for a second. That Neimoidian is, was, and always will be Gilramos Libkath. End of story. Next, Dod's Aide is in TCW 3x03, Canay's Aide is in TCW 3x04. Finally, Yee Moh in Episode II is hard to spot. She's in the background of the Outlander Club, talking with two other Neimoidians; you see a quick glimpse of her as Anakin walks on, and is given a once-over by the purple Twi'lek, Lunae Minx.
