Bonus art – Channeling

channeling_wm

Something extra, and extra healing ūüíö

While I’m working on correcting the Orcish tent issue on previous pages (which takes a lot of tracing/redrawing work I can’t just sit down and do without setting up a specific work station), I’ve been using my daily Tock Time* to finish up some bonus illustrations – which will be available as prints, in interest of my upcoming presence at Gears to Corsets, September 27th to 29th!

So here’s the first of those, featuring Tock, channeling some faerie energy through her primary goddess, Carwen.

Available as a 5×7 inch print!! Click here!¬†

*For those of you who don’t know, because of my busy schedule, daily “Tock Time” means at least 15 minutes a day working on the newest page of the comic. Since I work traditionally, this usually means just sitting down with pencils pen and paper and physically creating each page. However, things have been different lately, due to the reasons listed above.

WIP preview – the Orcish tent correction, page 74

So this has been going on ‚̧

I’ve talked a lot more about these edits (and shown more WIP shots) on Patreon, but even though I haven’t said much here, I assure you that progress has been happening. It doesn’t feel right, to me, to push forward on new pages until I’ve corrected the existing ones. So rest assured that even though it may seem like we’ve stalled out on Tock’s story, we are indeed still moving forward – and I absolutely haven’t given up yet!

Thank you for your patience, dear readers ūüé©

Promo – World Building Wednesday

Time for another patrons-only world building post, dear readers!
Today, we’re taking another look at what I’ve called “The Chances,” inspired by this quote from The Sidhe: Wisdom from the Celtic Otherworld, by John Matthews

This weekend is going to be veryvery busy as I vend at a festival out of town, so here’s these quick before I go!

Day 29, “Aztec”

Something very very non-Tock Рinspired by Lake Texcoco and the cities they built around it, a giant Mermaid lake-spirit blesses and guards the people who lived there.

Day 30, “Stars”

Something more canon – a Mermaid who’s clearly been through something rough gets blessed with starfish hugs!

Day 31, “Free Draw”

Something Tock-possible – and a flashback, revisiting these two from last year’s last day! Loosely based on my Wife and me (and I can’t believe it took me 31 days to draw a sea turtle Merm, what the eff, self?).

Thanks again to the amazing¬†Maegan Cook¬†¬†for an awesome Mer-month!! Hope you all enjoyed my entries ūüĆä

WIP – Steampunking up my Gnome Wings (and other shop notes)

IMG_20190525_204449_648

Mermay catchup and Sunday Gnomedays will be up later, dear readers. In the meantime here’s a sneak peek of something I don’t usually post here, as it’s not directly related to this project – however, that is changing a bit!

Previous Gnome Wings focused solely on the Faerie aspect of my work, but I was inspired recently to see what steampunk elements I can add to them! Small cogs and keys are on their way to me as I speak, so for now I’ve started adjusting my color palette and adding corsets *excited rapid clapping!*

The plan for this one is to add a key on top of the corset, laying over the join in the front, and add cogs to the upper wings (as well as the normal tail-shapes I usually put at the bottom).

More on these as they come, I’m hoping to have a few ready for Salem NY Faerie Fest next month. And of course prints from the comic, as well as stickers and issues of the comic, are always available at my Etsy shop (with issues 1 and 2 available here and here free digitally for all patrons!).

More Mermay catchup and Sunday Gnomedays 5-19-19

Last week was very busy with other projects, but here’s a start to catching up ‚̧

IMG_20190519_163828_552

Day 17, “Lace”

And happy Sunday Gnomedays too! Potentially non-canon, but let’s say sometime in the future, a Mermaid¬†meets a Gnome – and in sparking their friendship, finds out that she’s a lacemaker, but has no idea what that is! On the next visit, then, the Gnome takes it upon herself to bring an example. And in demonstrating that it’s sometimes worn…. they end up closer than expected ūüíē

Day 16, “Koi”

A character from possibly the furthest¬†backstory¬†I’ve drawn from, recently mentioned by Misu in another backstory post recounting her people’s history. She’s a kind of¬†priestess, communicating with the water¬†wisps¬†(like wil o’ the wisps) I drew on day 1.
