Kiss, pg 2 by GreekCeltic Kiss, pg 2 by GreekCeltic
*I updated the strip to be a little more true to the layout of the first one. I added a doodle at the end (one I hadn't planned on uploading, but there it is).

Can't stop won't stop nope.

Consider this part 2 of Kiss.

Can't say there will be a part 3 because I don't think there's anywhere else I can take it. I should note that Herman is the one that's ridiculously tall :I Jacky is pretty average at 5'4''.

When you first started posting the interactions between Herman and Jacky, it was a bit jarring from what I had gleaned of Jacky in your gallery- I just couldn't see her being touchy-feely or affectionate with ANYONE.  She's always struck me as SUPER stand-offish, but again, that's just what I've gleaned from what's in your gallery- but I think I'm starting to see it work, and it's starting to look and feel more natural as time goes on.  And adorable.  It's definitely adorable now.

I can see where you're coming from! She IS stand-offish and withdrawn. She's also self-conscious about having a tail. Having such a not-human feature would have slimmed her pickings and I think she gave up the idea of a relationship with anybody at a young age. Herman is something different all together. He's a puppet, granted a very lifelike one, but still a puppet. There's zero pressure and they've got grounds to relate on. I also think it would strip away from her character to write a story with romance in it unless the love was sidelined and built up carefully over a LONG time. That's the trouble with these doodles, I've been doing them more for fun so they're really in-your-face and out of the blue. Cutsie art is theraputic after a bad day, but not necessarily the best choice for canon material.

Do I think this relationship could happen? I do! I think it's likely- but I also think it's something to be thought of in their distant future that would be only hinted to as the story progresses. I don't think it would consume the story the way it does in Disney movies.

I haven't actually written any of their interactions in canon yet, I've only glanced at them, but my best guess is that for the majority of the story, these two are more likely to fight like cats and dogs than they are to kiss each other on the cheek, but personally I think that's a symptom of a brewing relationship (be it friendship or romantic) :X I LOVE to doodle cute stuff, but as writing goes I enjoy writing about monsters and adventures way more than kisses.

That is very sad that she tries to hide her tail like that. Any world with humans in it is going to be human dominated and humans are inherent jerks but she should be able to show off her individuality rather than conceal it like a horrid mutilation scar. Does puppet-boy even know about the tail? I think that's what I want to see next, his reaction to finding out that she's a big, green dragon-wolf thing in disguise.

*disregarding red angry face* I'm glad I read that first. >.>

The self-conscious-about-her-body part is absolutely a huge part of what struck me as Jacky not being a people-person at all.  Like, I kind of get this vibe that she would LOVE to socialise more with people, but feels inadequate because of the riskiness of her abnormalities being exposed, and that's a "threat", and is therefore scary and the chance of exposure just shouldn't even be tempted.  And aye, I absolutely see Jacky as a very long-term-relationship person, and I agree ( and can much easily accept ) that these interactions appear to be from a vast time-jump in their personal relationships with each other.  I do time-skips with my characters and sketches all the time, so I can ABSOLUTELY understand that idea.

Also I totally get what you're saying about cutesy-being-therapeutic.  One page in my sketch book that I receive LOTS of comments on is halfway filled with angry shadow demon things, and the other half with baby gryphon-dragon ( Zorphs, they're called Zorphs, but everyone thinks they're gryphon-dragon hybrids ) chicks doing cute things like falling asleep standing up, running and tripping with tiny wings outstretched, and ALL of the fluff.  The reason for the juxtaposition was simple: I NEEDED the cuteness to counter the creepiness.

And I also COMPLETELY understand what you mean by "romantic relationships are cute, but I'd MUCH rather draw / write about ADVENTURE AND CRITTERS RAWR!!"  My own characters' romantic relationships take backseats to their every-day lives, jobs, adventures, etc. ( much to some of their distress, I'm sure ), but that doesn't mean drawing some cuddling every once in awhile isn't awesome, adorable, and fun!

You're very right! I too often forget that Jacky also has a rotator cuff injury in her shoulder. Silvac reminded me recently that pain makes a person irritable. That would be another big contributor to her personality flaws. I actually made a mistake in one of their recent interactions because I drew Herman yanking that shoulder >:I if I followed canon she would have been in pain and grumpy for the rest of the walk. It's made me consider scrapping the injury because I'm not sure I want to have to remember it's there all the time.

I WENT OFF SUBJECT,

Cute art is just the best thing :'D I'd love to have a page in my sketchbook full of cutsie stuff. Could open it on the road and INSTANT MOOD FIX.

I have a character that has shrapnel lodged in his hip ( based off of my friend's uncle who was a Vietnam vet ), and a lot of the time I forget to give him a limp... but then, it's somewhat dismissable because he's also SUPER head-strong and REFUSES to let on to the world at large ANY weakness of his body or character.  As difficult as it is to sometimes remember such things, I do think that little chronic things make for more interesting, realistic characters, though.  To be fair about the rotator cuff injury- my mum has a rotator cuff arthritis that was exasperated by a read-end car collision several years back, and some days she can hardly lift a cup of coffee to her lips, but other days she can work in her garden all day, play her piano, cook, drive around, have kids climb all over her, etc., and be fine.  That's the thing about chronic injuries- they tend to be day-by-day things.  Even if most days it kills you, you'll have moments where it's like it's not even there.  I have De QuerVain's Syndrome of my left thumb, and some nights I'll wake up screaming because it suddenly seized up and the tendon, I don't even know- gets caught on the shaft or something?  I shake my hand until there's a *POP*, which hurts like fucking HELL as if it wasn't hurting already, then whimper and massage my wrist for several minutes, do hand stretches showed to me by a physical therapist, etc., and then at other times I can go MONTHS without even NOTICING it.  Similarly, I have sciatica due to shattering both of my lower-leg bones ( tibia, fibula ) when I was little, and a lot of days I just kind of limp along, and yell and growl at whomever I'm with to SLOW THE FUCK DOWN, whereas other days I can outrun them without nary a tingle.  To be fair, days that I haven't slept well seem to be the worst for me, pain-wise, but a lot of people who know me forget that I have these issues from time to time until I, say, try to pick up something huge and heavy and my left hand suddenly gives out, or something.

AND NOW I AM RAMBLING.  But hey, feel free to pick my brain sometime if you want some ideas on how various physical and mental ailments affect bodies and minds.  I've been poking around at medical studies since I was a little kid, and just about finished up a sub-medical degree before the economy crashed and my education has since been put indefinitely on hold.

ANYHOW, that there can be your excuse for "forgetting" about Jacky's chronic injury, eh?? :D I'M HELPING.
