I don’t really have a model sheet for her (I know, I’m bad) but here’s a compilation of sketches of her coat and what’s under it:
She has fur lined boots without the little bell and bow (it was for a Christmas card), a modified Quazky-ish bikini top, and poofy brown close-fitting harem pants. For better refs of her in her jacket, check Chapter 14 pages 448 through 451. As a Reptoid, she doesn’t wear shoes… like all the Reptoids. :B
I know you asked this awhile ago and I answered it in the Livestream, but I’ll answer it again for everyone else. Generally, I don’t share my script save for little tidbits and previews. The written scripts are not that long and with just a few paragraphs of text there’s a ton of spoilers. I plan to publish the scripts in the backs of the books so you can see the way they’re written and how I take notes on them. Oh the notes and scribbles… so many.
I usually take a two weeks off every year to go back to Pennsylvania and see my family. I almost never get any drawing done on those trips and it takes me a good few days to really get back into it. I really don’t like to take time off from drawing but traveling really takes it out of me. Never not be comicking!
For my information, I use books by the likes of Budd Hopkins, Dr. David M. Jacobs, and Stanton Friedman. I thought I had a list of my books somewhere but I can’t find it. Also, old TV shows like Unsolved Mysteries and SciFi’s Sightings have good info on abductions and UFOs. When I was a kid, Ufology was all the hype but it kind of went out of the mainstream in the mid-90s. Most of the good stuff came out before the millennium.
As for the Reptoid Ruler conspiracy theory, it’s not one I’m really fond of. It comes from the darker side of the UFO phenomenon and carries a lot of race-hate with it (Jewish people or POC are Reptoids, serial killers are Reptoids, ‘Things I disagree with or don’t like’ are Reptoids and THEY’RE ALL TRYING TO TAKE OVER THE WORLD GASP). You can thank David Icke for a lot of that. >n>;
I get most of my Reptoid info from John Rhodes and his recommended reading list here: http://www.reptoids.com/amarketplace/books.htm He generally takes a less nutty and more peaceful look at the whole thing.
I haven’t drawn Keel in awhile and some of my older art has been deleted from DA. I usually do a cleanup every 2 years to keep things neat and tidy. Here’s a Keel drawing for you to show your friend:
I know, she’s so close! :D I only have a 11 pages left and then I’m going to start the Kickstarter. I hope it goes well everyone likes the new-and-improved look for TH. <3
I really need to give After Dark some love. I’ve just been so busy that my horny-bone is gone. ;A; For anyone interested, TH: After Dark is my porn tumblr for Trying Human: http://tryinghumanafterdark.tumblr.com/ Boink!
Volume 1 is comprised of Chapters 1 through 4 so I think you’re a little confused. We’re currently on Volume 5: http://www.tryinghuman.com/archive.php Anyway, FJ12 and Pigment start stealing the show in Chapter 19 (the next chapter). Pigment and Shade do meet up again eventually but Pigment is so different at that point that they don’t really have a relationship again. Or whatever they had for being Greys. :\ Tone fills Pigment’s role with Shade.

I do get asked this a lot and I have a really hard time saying who would be good for them. I don’t watch a lot of TV or movies so I’m terrible with picking people. XD
