Full post available here.

And for some catchup!

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

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…

Time for another patrons-only world building post, my dear readers!
Today we are looking at Arella’s parents – the Queen and King before she and her brother Archibald took the throne – and how Gnomish government could have worked in times of more realm-wide crisis.

Time for another patrons-only world building post, dear readers!

Continuing our theme from last week, here’s a better portrait of the Gnomish royal family, as they are now. We will be looking a bit at what happened to Adamine after last week’s trauma, how this family formed, and where they are now.
