Gaia: looking down at her inhabitants Part 2 by whitestormclouds Gaia: looking down at her inhabitants Part 2 by whitestormclouds
This is the second part to a two part short comic about Gaia. What we have here is our sweetheart, Gaia (who is the Earth personified as a young girl) looking down on herself. But we also have the perspective of someone standing on the surface of the Earth, able to see her face in the far off distance. 

Imagine waking up every day and just seeing her on the horizon. I'd probably be fine with that myself. I think she's adorable.

Anyway, what do you guys think? Would you prefer it if people couldn't see Gaia's face from her surface?

Well, environmentalists get an enormous argument weight in this universe... Theists two...

Well, in this story the world is definitely more eco-friendly. But it wasn't always that way. 

In fact, in the story's lore, between the 1960s and 2010, humans weren't very eco-friendly, and did a lot of damage to Gaia. At this time, she was going through a bit of a punk phase: neither her attitude or appearances seemed all that healthy. But luckily, people changed their attitudes when they saw the damage they were doing to her, and by the year 2030 (when the story takes place) she is a lot healthier  now.

As for Theists, I'm not sure. There are definitely people who worship her like a goddess, but then again, even in our world, there are people who worship celestial bodies like deities. That much hasn't changed. 

Anyway, thanks for your thoughts!

I wonder how Gaia would have reacted to Warld War Two. All the insane pollution from mining, weapons manufacturing, battles, Jews turning into soap and nukes...

I'm not sure about that last part, but I'm sure Gaia would definitely notice the effects of WWII. Not sure how though: I'll have to think on it.

It could play out in many ways but, there is one aspect which could be affected quite dramatically.
America: That is it, Jappain! You are getting the radiation treatment!
Jappain: Not so fast thare! You would not want to upset Gaia with nukes!
America: Damn it!

Naw, they would still nuke them.

But I figure that a nuclear detonation would definitely be powerful enough for Gaia to feel. Perhaps as much as a pinch. 

I'm sure if I did do a story regarding Gaia's reaction to the second World War, that would come into play at some point. It's too big an event to ignore.

I wonder what she would think of the Axis and the Soviets.

Probably not much: she's not very politically minded.

Or maybe she is...what if she's a history buff, but only about human history and not cosmic history like what she'd learn in class? I'd have to think on it.

But she typically sees all humans as being equal. So I doubt she'd think of any group as being less than another.

I know God is the real creator of Earth, but if Gaia existed and looked down on us like that. At first I would have been scared, but after she makes that friendly smile, I know I wanna hug her. ^^

Eh, I wouldn't deny that God created Gaia.

That might actually be an interesting idea: have God as a character. After all, Gaia dwells in a galaxy of other planetary humanoids. Maybe God could be the president?

I'll work on the idea.

Anyway, if you lived on Gaia, you'd probably grow up seeing her all the time. It would be the norm. But she is a very pleasant sight to see on the horizon. 

Thanks!

Wow, I've given you an idea? That's cool. Good luck. ^^ I bet the closest to hugging her if you lived on her is hugging the ground, right?

Eh, you'd get a better experience from just buying a Gaia body pillow (They exist in this world) and hugging that instead. But whatever suits you.

I get huuuuuge Xenoblade Chronicles vibes from this and i love it :D

how have things been going fleshing out a story?  As someone whose been trying to create an alternate world myself i know its extremely difficult

:iconwhitestormclouds:
whitestormclouds Featured By Owner Feb 22, 2017
Really? I actually haven't played Xenoblade before. I've considered it though.

I've kinda been developing it on and off. Piece by piece. When people like TangleGTS request Gaia art, that's usually when I add more to the story. 

But this is definitely not the first story I've ever created, so I am aware of how difficult it can be to design a completely new world. But it's a process, and so far everything is coming together nicely.

Thanks for the feedback!

I'm sure Sailors in the Colonial age have tried it many times before. But yeah, the distance from there to the rim of her neck may be as far away as the distance between New York City and Warsaw, Poland. That's just a guess though.

Thanks!

That is possible, but her feet are pure skin: just like her hands and face. 

You're not the first person to say that though: a couple people seem to want to live on Gaia's feet. Maybe I should just make her feet have landmass as well.

Then again, you probably wouldn't see much sunlight down there, on account of how often she wears shoes. But she does wear flipflops pretty often so maybe it wouldn't be so dark.

When she has shoes on it would be like night-time, and when she takes them off its day! :D her colossal, lovely feet would be an incredible place to live ^-^

whitestormclouds Featured By Owner Feb 26, 2017
Well, I guess I can get behind that.

I've thought about it some though: I guess I could consider making her feet have landmass as well. That way people could live on them. However, her feet are at her most southern part of her body, which means they'll be where Antartica is. Do you think you'd be okay living in such a cold place?

:iconiamborede:
Iamborede Featured By Owner Feb 26, 2017
I think her feet would be nice and warm :D they would keep us toasty and make the area habitable. In return we would keep her feet soft and smooth. And during the winter/night season she can wear titanic shoes to keep her feet warm.

:iconwhitestormclouds:
whitestormclouds Featured By Owner Feb 26, 2017
Eh, perhaps. I guess her ankles would be the cold parts then. 

But if her feet were fleshy, they'd probably be warmer. Not much, but warmer. After all, she does like to wear socks. 

I'll think on it.

Thanks! Gaia's story is the kind that I wanted to tell with very few speech bubbles, so the multi-part drawings are good for giving you that storytelling edge with little reading. And also, that's like twice the drawings so it's a double for the watchers.

I appreciate your thoughts! Thanks!

Nice!

I like how you managed the blue fadeaway there- she really looks very far away...

Well, until you look down.
Reply
:iconwhitestormclouds:
whitestormclouds Featured By Owner Feb 22, 2017
Thanks!

The blue fadeaway was definitely the most important part. Because Gaia's head is supposed to be hundreds of miles away and thousands of miles in size, but still clearly visible from that far away. I wasn't sure the best way to illustrate that (we don't really have much of a reference of that in real life except with the moon during day time.) 

So for now, the blue fade will do. 

Thanks!

I think the blue fade is the best representation- certainly mountains look like that, and our minds are conditioned by reality to equate "big+far away" with "blue".

Well then you'd probably be fine with living on her. It's hard not to see her face since it's kinda always there.

You're welcome. I'd be fine with that as well, but I'd try to live on her feet, but who knows how long that would take me. Plus it'll be nice to see her cute face as the days go on.

You may be able to live closer to her feet: but the feet themselves are flesh (like her hands and face.) I'd recommend the breasts: lots of land, decent climate, and a good view of her face. Probably the best place to live on her whole body.

:iconfatesfollower:
fatesfollower Featured By Owner Feb 22, 2017
Oh. That doesn't sound as nice as I thought it would. I'd actually die on the flesh of her foot, and I don't think she'd notice my less than noticeable size. I might even die in her footwear, but I can imagine it would be a short life. I'd probably live at her ankles then. I wonder how the weather is there?

Well, I've thought about it, and maybe I will make her feet have landmass as well.

However, since it is the most southern part of her, her feet are probably going to be very cold. Hope your okay with that. 

And she usually wears things like flipflops and sandals, so I think you'd be okay in that regard as well.

Wow look at that pose. Also her face looming over the sky. I'm curious..if anyone goes on a plane would she know if someone left? Or well how would a spaceship be if they left to go to outer space.

I'm not sure how good her eyesight would be. 

perhaps? Her eyes are very big after all. But a person on the surface of her skin would be literally dust mote size. Maybe even smaller. And we can't see dust, so I'm not so sure. Even planes might be too small for her to see. A single hair on her head is probably several dozen times thicker than the width of our largest plane. Just a guess though.

She is aware of when spaceships leave the planet: mostly because she reads about it on her twitter. During the Apollo 11 mission, NASA coordinated with Gaia via radio signals to get the landing just right. Gaia actually positioned Selena on her shoulder in such a way that she would be easiest to reach by space shuttle.

That's why the Russians didn't get to the moon first: They never thought to contact Gaia directly.

Anyway, that's just small lore for now. Thanks for your thoughts!

Your welcome! Now I'm wondering how the rockets managed to get Gaia to get the other planet girls to help out.

:iconwhitestormclouds:
whitestormclouds Featured By Owner Feb 22, 2017
Naw, then Gaia would have to convince them to let a human land on them, and they're all kinda iffy about that. Mar's is sorta interested, but interested in like a "straight girl in high school who may sorta kinda want try doing lesbian things with a close friend" kind of way. 

So I'm not sure how soon until that'll happen.

You do realize I want to see that happen now. Because we may have tried to land on Mars...so it could be easy if Mars and Gaia just go for it.

What, a picture of Gaia and Mars lezzing out?

That sounds like a Patreon exclusive to me.

But I'll consider doing more with them. There is an interesting dynamic between Gaia and Mars that I kinda want to explore. Mars is considered Gaia's closest friend besides Selena.

It will have to be in another RP with a different story to it. I'm already trying to keep the one we have pieced together.
