I have a QUESTION by Scuter I have a QUESTION by Scuter
One of the many questions Einu asks about humans. He doesn't understand tears of joy. Can you answer the curious courier's question?

I sometimes wonder if I should submit some of the conversations Einu and Vala have regarding human emotions. Then I just draw something like this...

Possible answer for Einu:

Overwhelming emotions can often times be too much for a mere human body to handle and the excess emotion has no other way of escaping the body than to be released through tears...hence tears of joy, tears of anger, tears of sadness. I think because if everyone were to hold onto their emotions for too long, then they'll explode or implode (spontaneous combustion)!

Thanks! :D I'm sure people would explode from bottling emotions.

Love it when you draw your characters cute :D Seeing as none of them are cute lol, I'm still amazed on how you make Thunder look so adorable ;)
Ahem, anyway, I love Einu's curiosity, he's my favourite of your scribes ^^ But my favourite designs are Lo and Nal's. Perhaps an answer could be that tears express emotion in general, for most people it's shows specific expressions such as sadness...but as humans vary greatly, so do their use of these expressions. So tears can be shed for almost any emotion, such as happyness or pleasure.

Thanks, I have fun drawing some of my characters like this. Well, to some people, Thunder is just adorable. Like a bulldog or something.
Either way, I'm glad to know Einu is your favorite of the scribes. The answer Einu gets in the story, is that tears come from intense and overwhelming emotions. You are right, it is emotions in general, just with such intensity. I'm glad you took a shot at answering the question! No one else did! :D Thanks.

So you should :D They're your characters after all ^^ Oh yeah, I'd never realised how alike she was in stature to a bulldog, only very reptilian and... lacking eyes :P
It's his curiosity and sad little face...er, mask XD
That sounds about right, thank you ^^ I'm happy to answer his questions lol :) When will we all get to read this story then? Or is it in your gallery and I just haven't seen it? :S

Whenever I draw Thunder's legs, all I can think about are bulldogs! :D
It's funny, I just realized women seem to like Einu and men seem to like Vala. Funneh...
Oh, I've been thinking of posting one sometime. I'm just not entirely sure, but I think I may get around to posting some. I'm sure all of you would really appreciate a real insight on these characters.

Ha! Well I like them :D
Strange, I don't think it has anything to do with attractiveness (well, I could be wrong) because they don't have faces... I like him because he's...different and sad, where Vala seems more cold and harsh. Even though you say they are emotionless ;D
aha, yes I'm sure we would too :D You get enough comments and questions ^^ You're very good at designing characters :)

I think the guys really... ahem... like like Vala... again I could be wrong... :B but, you never know!
The two are very different from each other and that is shown through the story. I suppose I really should at least submit a brief something something to really show the characters.

I do a few drawings like this every now and then.

I actually have been putting some serious thought about it now. I think I may just do it.

oh right, do you think you'll do them? are they all about the scribes?

Now, that is one reason why I'm hesitating. The conversations aren't all about the scribes, bear in mind, the scribes are an emotionless society that simply exist to write and record information. Odd as it sounds, conversations are very uncommon among them. In their lives, all there is IS work and nothing else. They don't have drives, ambition, or even a sense of curiosity... except for Einu, he is the different one... oh yeah, and the parents Nu and Aav... did I ever tell you their story? Regardless, what I'm trying to get at, is that these conversations would have never been without a particular human that is introduced to them. A character I have yet mentioned; Covolt Daustro's son, Arlan. You can see the hesitation, since I have yet to even mention Arlan to anyone I would have to somehow introduce him and explain why he is with the scribes.

ahh i see your issue, to have characters that dont speak or express themselves would be hard, it sounds like a sad life, maybe you just do some more Einu pictures. no you did'nt are they differnt like Einu also?
have you drawn Arlan? maybe this could be a opener image for him and the Scribes?

It's a sad life in our perspective but they don't feel sorrow. So it is just sad to us! :D
Damn! If you don't know about Nu and Aav, then you only know half of the story about the scribes! I'll send the gist of the scribe history and the story of Nu and Aav as well through a note. I don't want to clutter this page with the whole story! :D
No, I haven't drawn Arlan yet. I suppose this would be an opportunity to introduce him. But, I do want to at least introduce the main characters first... I should do that ASAP!

I love how you've captured the eyes - they genuinely express confusion and interest, not something I'd say would be easy to do :)

Indeed, and even if you could see the rest of the face, one of the first places I always look for emotion is the eyes as that's where it's often conveyed.

Regardless, great job!
