Mermay catchup! Those final 3 days.

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 – inspired 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 🌊

Time for another patrons-only world building post, dear readers! This week, from Mermay day 28 – Snail, we’re taking a look at an extravagant behavior of the royal court during Misu and Mariatu’s time (waaay in the backstory).

Full post available here.

And for some catchup!

World Building Wednesday 44 promo (and a bit of Mermay catchup!)

Time for another patrons-only world building post, dear readers! This week, we’re taking a quick look at the relationship between the Merfolk and the Selkie (from today’s Mermay prompt, featured in the image above).

Click here to read the full post!

And for a bit of Mermay catchup:

Day 18, “Pirate”

Featuring Sed, again (as above), in a moment of reflection….. how did she find herself in such a role, I wonder?

Obviously I am several other days behind. My plan is to catch up in a backwards order from here and push forward on the remaining prompts in order.

My attention/inspiration has been captured by other projects the last few days, so progress on this challenge slowed WAY down without me even realizing it. Thanks, always, for your patience and I hope you still look forward to the rest!

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 ❤

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 💕

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.

Mermay day 1 ~ World Building Wednesday 41

IMG_20190501_102651_515

Counting this as this week’s WBW due to distraction from the earlier issue drop ❤ Aaand making my notes available to all readers as a special treat! Usually the actual world building text is for patrons only, while I post the associated drawings as a teaser for everyone. Check out my Patreon for more!

It’s time for another world building post, dear readers! Kicking off another month of focusing on those beneath the sea…

Though the Merfolk seem to be the dominant fae of the oceans of Tock’s world, there are still many other faeries there, including this watery version of a wil o’ the wisp! They do seem to be very rare, however, as this dolphin-maid seems very fascinated by her encounter. Like their land/air-based cousins, these water wisps often serve as guides to greater mysteries, sometimes leading ill-intentioned people astray…
