Very nearly caught up! Day 20 is still missing – it’s drawn, but demands a proper scan, so hopefully I will have that (and today’s) up later!

Day 21 – Weekend / Day 22 – Sweet / Day 23 – Pet

All 3 together! For weekend, I ended up drawing more the ‘idea’ of the weekend (since I’ve never in my life worked a job where I have weekends off). For sweet, got inspired by cupcakes! And for pet, I felt compelled to draw a pufferfish. They are weirdly cute.

Day 24 – Approach

As in romantic approach ❤ (…..I got a CD of operatic versions of Sappho’s poems recently, soooooo yes.)

Catchup and combination!

Prompt was “Feels” 😭 For this one, that term makes me think of fangirling and that makes me think of the ships I gravitate towards, which are pretty much always doomed/separated by circumstance, so here we are.

(….don’t worry I imagine they find some way to be happy.)

….Yeah, I know.

(And more catchup, obviously ^^; The next couple of them will be posted individually, as day 18 has been mixed with Sunday Gnomedays for another moment of Mermsih/Gnomish loveliness!)

More catchup! Huzzah!

Day 16 – Urgent

This one more than kinda shifted in the drawing of it – I imagine it’s an urgent message, yes, but I’m not sure what she’s so surprised about!

Day 17 – Proposal

This one was really lovely to do – Misu and Mariatu from “Tock the Gnome” just HAD to be the “proposal” inspiration, and I hadn’t gotten to figure out how their engagement happens yet, so very much yay!

Misu is holding the bracelets I always draw Mariatu wearing in more current bonus art – details about Elven proposals and more information on how these two get to this moment is available here. Have fun reading ❤

These two are so sweet and precious to me (and my own Llady Wife) so I am SO grateful to get to explore their part of Tock’s world more during MerMay. I hope you enjoy seeing them too (even if Mariatu’s a land-lubber. Arr harr).

This is demanding finishing up regardless of anything/everything else I have going on.

Aaaaaaand since the linework is so pretty, I figured I’d make a coloring page out of it! Please enjoy and tag me ( @rachelillustrates or #rachelillustrates ) if you use it ❤

Also, in addition to being OBSESSED with these two now (I’m fine. Don’t send help) I highly suggest “Celestial Bodies” by AnontheNullifier if you’re in need of a less catastrophic AU of their development. It’s delicious and perfect.

Shot of the pencilwork here.

Aaaaaaand again ^^; I am determined to finish, but it may be in rushes like this.

Day 12 – Strange

This one was fun – and I was actually stumped, until my amazing Wife suggested a deep sea creature for this prompt. I ended up getting inspired by the Oarfish (….she looks so grumpy I love her).

Day 13 – Golden

Random “Frog Prince” inspiration here.

Day 14 – Threaten

As soon as I saw this on the list, I knew this one HAD to be Misu and her mother from “Tock the Gnome” backstory.

More context available on Patreon.

Day 15 – Behemoth

A friendly Blue Whale it is! Really pleased with many of the little details in this one, btw.

A new page of “Tock the Gnome” is now up for reading!

Read here 

Or start from the beginning here ❤

~

“Tock the Gnome: The Rescue Quest” is about a Gnome woman named Tock, who lives in a Steampunk culture in a high fantasy world. Driven by a Fairy Tale about a trapped Elven princess on a floating island, she convinces her friend Bumble – an airship pilot – to join her quest to rescue her. They hire extra firepower from unfamiliar lands, and together they seek the island and the princess. But what they seek may not be quite what they expected…

NOTE: Will contain lesbian romance, size-positivity, Faerie, spiritual magic, conundrums and tomfoolery.
