My vision of Steve Leiva's genetically enhanced gorgeous humanoids from another planet.
My vision of Steve Leiva's genetically enhanced gorgeous humanoids from another planet. If you haven't read the book Traveling In Space the idea is a hominoid species separate from our own, that evolved on another planet that have mastered medicine, and genetic manipulation and live hundreds of years looking young. They have completely tweaked their bone structure, muscle tissue, skin etc… to what they felt was more aesthetically pleasing over millennia of tinkering. The auther Steve and I both thought it would be a great challenge to try and show what a being like this might look like, and I like challenges. My process of thinking to achieve somewhat the look of this unusual gorgeousness was… .I stretched the body, she has an extra 4-5 inches on her torso, 6 inches on the legs, 2 inches on her much thinner neck, all with an impossibly small waist in proportion to height and natural breast size. Very defined collar bone, shoulders, and cheek bone. Her eyes are massive about 35% larger than normal, and her iris is about the size of a quarter. The colour in here eyes would be so bright and layered, and so perfectly clear and reflective they would shine like headlights. If she looked directly at you, you’d freeze for a second. Her face is perfectly symmetrical with no lines, wrinkles, or blemishes of any kind. The curve of her body is impossible, only made possible by her advanced more concentrated muscle tissue. The woman in this drawing would be about 6ft 2-3, and wouldn’t weigh more that 115lbs if that, she would fall to the ground if she were human, but she is not human she is very strong and athletic. Her hair is layers of lights and darks, she grows beautiful highlights and layers naturally all the time as set in her genetic makeup. Her hands and fingers are longer and thinner with tiny wrists. When she walks, it is like she is floating. The first thing guys say to this drawing is “she’s HOT, but she’s too bony.” And that is the point, her proportions are impossible and a little odd to us, they are from a scientifically advanced society with millennia of genetic enhancements in their past. The have slowly tweaked their look, and there is much variation in their species, but in general I would guess they would look odd at the same time as incredibly gorgeous to us, the same way Anna Kournikova would look strange through the eyes of homo erectus, but still irresistably attractive. Well I tried to do the concept justice, but I think any illustration would fall short.
