Happy beginning of MerMay everyone!
(This is also a “Tock the Gnome” patreon bonus – that Elven lady in the middle of an intense Mermaid hug is Mariatu. Surrounding her is her Wife, Misu. They are an important part of the backstory of Tock’s world and there are many bonus pieces relating to them and mermaid/elf culture there. See more here.)
This is also especially dedicated to my own Mer-Llady Wife 🐚💗🦈
Good luck to all of us participating!
Hello dear readers! Just a reminder – only one more week left to get this exclusive print – only available to patrons, and only until May 1st!
“WIP Wednesday,” that is, with some bonus art progress!
I don’t get to show off Tock’s plumpness very much in the comic, due to the fun of corsets (really the only other times we’ve gotten to see it are in “Resurgam” and these two patron bonus pieces, “Tock’s Carwen Altar” and “Moonlight Stroll at the Camp”).
But in interest of getting to do that – since the need for me to push the body-positivity of the series has been brought VERY much to my attention lately – I’m redoing an old sketch of her daydreaming.
More WIP of this will be available for all patrons on Patreon as I go, btw. And don’t forget about the exclusive print special – only available for 12 more days!
So in addition to today’s Patreon Ranger bonus post being appropriate for International Women’s Day, here’s this too.
This feels like a follow up to my older piece, “Purity,” even though they are technically about different things. And regardless of what inspired them, I hope this inspires all of us – but especially those of the lady persuasion – to live free in our own delightfulness. We are beauty, and grace, and stardust, everyone.
Happy International Women’s Day, all ❤

Having some body confidence issues today, so here’s some self-care “Tock the Gnome” pinup work.
I don’t get to show it much in the comic, because…..corsets, but Tock is actually a very curvy lady. So here she is, rocking it and having pride even when I struggle.
Hope she inspires everyone else, too!

Tough night getting motivated to work on things, so random sketching turned into the Gnomish Goddess of Love, Carwen.
I’ve written about her before, but more on the Gnomish Gods will be coming again soon.
