Gray Grace - Alien Agent by Enshohma Gray Grace - Alien Agent by Enshohma
Gray Grace was originally created for :iconchadrocco: (Chad Rocco's) 2009 contest based off of his own Ghouls of Halloween Series. It ended up among the winners, and I even did a short poem in the tradition of the original series, which goes something like this...

**********

From deepest, darkness space she arrives.
Shouting 'resistance is useless' to all she meets.
This gray-skinned beauty, brandishing ray guns, all so sweet.


**********

OKAY...I never said I was any good at it!

And for the record, :iconchadrocco: has already done an alien babe for his series before. But as you can see below, his purple-skinned, cephalopod-like bombshell is way more in tune with 1950s science fiction than mine does. Yes, Gray Grace still has the retro-slant also, but she's based on the 'Grays' of modern urban folklore.



**********

Since the 2009 contest, Gray Grace has become one of those characters that's ended up in my creative storage, despite a back-story done for her.

She's a former spy for her people, whose mission was to help prepare the United States government for an alien invasion back in the mid-1950s. But Grace's superiors canceled the invasion plans, and callously stranded her on Earth. Years later, Gray Grace changes sides, and now works for Interpol, dealing with their more bizarre cases, such as alien fiends more villainous than she ever was, super criminals of the human variety, and random monsters born from science run amok.

So yeah, she's a special agent and a 'good monster', who battles other monsters for the safety of mankind, who've adopted her as one of its own in return.

**********

NOW at this point, you've probably guessed WHY she's in my creative storage...

The whole 'special monster agent' plotlines have been done nearly to death, and arguably better I might add, with such notably examples being the titles heroes of the "Hellboy" and "Ultra Seven" franchises.

True, "Gray Grace" would be heavily inspired by 1960s pulp adventures and science fiction, complete with outright sexual overtones, that I would gladly take beyond the limits of what either "James Bond" or "Barbarella" had to offer.

Though wither or not this means I just make it a full-blown Hentai (erotic comic) based on Gray Grace is still up for debate.

Still, Gray Grace herself is a fun character, who loves her new home world and its more upbeat cultures and traditions. Especially the swinging slingers' lifestyle she's taken from both Britain and America from this era.

That, of I can't create a respectable, reserved female protagonist to save the life of me, and thus here we all go again!

Well that's a part of it really; the reversed blacks-and-whites, also the slight, warrior-ish squint, the hunting smirk.  That and she's an alien creature - literally! - so unsettling fits.  Overall great I'd say; would love to see more of her!

I still don't know what I really want to do with her, or how extreme / mature her final stories would be like, but basically she's a swinging 1960's alien spy girl, so she does bed a lot of human men during her adventures. Hope that answered your question?

She looks pretty good, and I think she'd make for an interesting character.

Thank you for the input, and sorry for MY late reply here.

BTW, would Gray here work better as a full blown hentai, or a more tone down, though no less sex-filled action series?

She's much better looking than most grays I've seen, thats for sure! They must hide their women from other species XD

Grays don't lend themselves to sexy redesigns easily (many desperate attempts), so it took me a while to get her just right, with a hefty does of sci-fi camp to complete her; so glad the work paid off with comments like yours!

Definitely should have gone with a Shoggoth, and I'm not just saying that cause I'm a huge fan of Lovecraft, plus "At The Mountains of Madness" is an awesome read. ^.^

Thanks man, and don't worry about it; its more my fault for not getting my priorities straight and sending you a bunch of non-Halloween related stuff to clean up first. But thanks to you, I'll have more continuing updates in the future, even if we have to do something like Halloween, Part 2: Thanksgiving!
