I have no idea what to do with these things...

I've been visiting my grandmother through this week and I've only just gotten home. Had a good time. We went to the Arboretum and her local zoo, where wild vultures lodged with the bears. 

While I was gone, I had a bunch of paper that I filled up with sketches, which I will load soon. Mostly more Utrom stuff, because I love them.

Shh! You hear that? Those are the gears in my head turning!


Ice pack required
If there's one thing that needs to be learned about interstellar relationships is that there will be new issues to meet and new precautions to follow. Fiona has made note that going in dry with an Utrom is just as terrible an idea, if not more terrible, than with a human. 

Also, I need to work on my figure drawing and never draw these two in flat colors ever just doesn't suit all. 
I assume that Utroms have a more scientific fascination with mammalian systems as a whole, and don't share the humans social obsession. Ranos just likes the feeling, and only from Fiona. Plus it gives him something in human behavior to take back to the Utroms. Granted, a lot of it is awkward to explain, but anything to share new knowledge.

He has a smaller bed on top of Fiona's, since he's a little uncomfortable being under the sheets of a massive one. Their coverings are identical though. Their bedding setup might be changed.
15 Until Chill by Bat-Snake
15 Until Chill
After a long day at the Starship base, Fiona and Ranos retreat to their home in New Jersey and watch their favorite soaps...then follow up with Netflix and chill. Usually with their preferred intoxicant. Ranos usually goes for cranberry juice, which can make Utoms drunk.
The Struggle by Bat-Snake
The Struggle
Temre felt awkward without Krang in her arms for the first time since he was born. But, per Gabry's instruction, she had to ice her bruising crop in order to alleviate discomfort. Quanin held Krang in the meantime. For a while, they enjoyed quiet conversation in Quanin's study, until Krang woke up. He shifted around a little, eyes closed, and clasped his mouth on Quanin's flesh. Quanin gasped awkwardly and started to try brushing him off. However, Krang had already noticed a different texture than what he had been used to, snapped his eyes open, and seeing that he was not held by his mother, spun away with a wail.

Temre sunk, sighing with exhaustion while Quanin struggled in vain to calm their baby. "Why doesn't he like me!?" He lamented.

I could have done better with the chairs...especially by putting them closer together. Quanin is pretty much still struggling with Krang in his early infancy, but the dislike doesn't go on nearly as long as it does with others. Just a few weeks. Mostly because he woke up hungry too many times while Quanin was holding him and he built up an association. 
Introducing Fiona and Ranos
Instead of developing the turtles themselves, I keep going with the Utroms. And so, I work with two of the major plays for the time after aliens start coming to Earth in the Mirage comics. This attracts the crowd against alien visitation, simply called Xihad (real original, Mirage guys...). Which brings time to discuss my presentation of the first aliens on earth. Human-Alien mixing starts as science fiction predicted, and of course, Xihad (and others) protest it. Especially the relationships between human women and male aliens. The non-straight elements, save for some of the female-female, are ignored. ""Damn aliens taking our women" they say while fighting down pondering how to bed that hot alien chick" at the heart of it. 

And so springs their antithesis, "Xen<3" (Xeno). For the moment, the group's intent is to aid interstellar couples in figuring one another out, and one of their unofficial leaders is Fiona Stavropoulos, whose boyfriend is an Utrom named Ranos. Ranos' design is mostly unofficial at this point. Fiona is the head admin runs the Xen<3 tumblr blog and handles questions for humans with non-humanoid partners, and especially those with Utroms. Ranos does not fully participate, but still leaves his two-bits for the reverse. 

I haven't figured out yet how they become a couple, but I know they both work as security officers at the central Earth spaceport in New York (but they live in New Jersey). And they enjoy the soap opera John and Marsha. 
One of the big elements of their relationship is adjusting to the fact that they have radically different bodies and have to get really creative when it comes to the physical aspects. And through nasty surprises like what Fiona is finding in the corner. It's why I have a maturity warning, even if it's not humanoid. 

And yes, Fiona's family is Greek. In fact, both sets of her grandparents were Greek immigrants. English is her second language.

oh this reminds me. Remember as you once posted a picture with your own Utrom characters who wanted to join the Utrom Preservi? Do you still working on that story? Because it sounded really interesting :)

It ended up getting lost in the mix of other things, but I'll probably find a way to weasel in more about it into my main storyline.

Other things have come into focus, so I'm drawing blanks. I don't even have names for those characters
