Indole-3-Acetic Acid

I have no reason to draw this molecule first, but we're learning plant biology in Biology 152 recently.
So this is Indole-3-Acetic Acid (IAA), who looks a little bit like my botany professor. ^ ^
He is not one of the drug molecules, but a plant hormone.

His greatest ability is to make plants grow roots, and then they'll grow new shoots.
Each of the four pockets on his shirt is full of different kinds of seeds.
If nothing changes my original character description, he's French!
He's also a distant relative of the Tryptamines.


  1. In fact, every time I think of this character I can so imagine him speaking French. ;) I guess you'll have to make him French then.

  2. LOL What colors should I make his hair and eyes then? I think one of them should be green. He's dark-haired.

    French people often have compound names, but this guy here kinda has a triple name ... guess the human name thing just doesn't work for molecules.

  3. I'm thinking about posting this on dA. Hmm ...
