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 🌊

Promo – World Building Wednesday 46

Time for another patrons-only world building post, dear readers! However – because of this month’s Open House, it is available to read for all!

This week, we’re going to look at what happens when a faerie-being closest to the Heart of Faerie falls out of alignment with that spiritual flow – becoming ‘the Drifted.”

IMG_20190605_115007_161

Design for this particular Drifted comes from AcronaSilverFox on dAClick here to see her original post on the design, which I was lucky enough to adopt!  (And please enjoy this bonus Actia, too. Haven’t gotten to draw her in a while, so I hope it’s as refreshing for you to see her as it was for me to draw her!)

World Building Wednesday 45 promo, Mermay catchup and Sunday Gnomedays 5-26-19

(Whew, lots today!)

IMG_20190529_160218_845

IMG_20190529_160218_858

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!

(more…)


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

IMG_20190522_152043_437

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.
