Happy MerMay! (and patreon peek)

mermay2018_misuandmariatu

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!

WIP – “Tock Daydreaming”

wip_tockdaydreams_rachelillustrates

“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!

Sketch/WIP – Resurgam

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 ❤

Sketch – Fancy Tock

fancytock_tockthegnome
Hello dear readers.
Not a lot of drawing has been happening this week (eternal shakey fist at January and SAD). Page 82 is very nearly done, though, and I am still planning the rest of that behind-the-scenes yurt story as previously mentioned on my Patreon. So there will at least be that for this month’s progress on Tock’s story….
In the meantime, please enjoy this self-care fancy Tock. That hat should look familiar, but it will be some time before she has such ownership of it (enough to dress it up with fancy flowy ruffles and corsets, that is!).
Thank you all so much for being here. It means so much to me.

Sketch – Tock pinup, 2017

tockpinup_2017_sketch_tockthegnome

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!

Sketch – Carwen, love Herself

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.
