after looking up my old sketchbooks i found an au?? story? thing about these guys that never got made but i remember loving it so much i still have some bits and pieces of the story still in my head... So i decided to redraw the designs ; v ; (ill post the full views of the pages on my twitter)
Idk if you guys will even read this LOL but heres a summary of the plot:
Its set in the future, in a planet far away and Kei is a volunteer who is the first to successfully travel there (and survive the trip) though he has no means to return home. He ends up landing nearby a local research base where he meets the small team thats working there. Although things get a little rough at first, with him being mistaken as a threat, they learn to trust eachother afterwords and Kei learns about their culture and the planet's history, all while trying to find a possible way to go back to earth.
