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).

Kilpatrick’s Public House that is, the only Irish Pub here in Ithaca NY!

A while ago I was asked to do this, and I am very grateful that it’s finally worked out (and that they were on board with me drawing oodles of Irish faeries)! This drawing is very much in service to them – I hope that anyone looking at this or coloring it as they wait for their meal thinks about the fae, and the richness of Irish culture.

So the lovely DrMistyTang, Zimeta and ratscout have been holding a contest over on deviantART for their very, very fun series, “The Chronicles of Dru.”

(Contest information and all entries here.)

Getting this in nearly at the last second, but I had to join the fun! Below is my story submission and first, some supplemental art for it, including character design and details on how Gnomes are in Dru. As much fun as the story was to write, it was a super fun challenge and an honor to come up with Gnomish design for this world.

Now without further ado…

~ For Fairy Love, a “Chronicles of Dru” tale~

Navaie the Elf Witch left Elf Port well over a decade ago, and had no intention of ever going back.

Personal work, about a very important anniversary of mine, today. 
4 years now.

I am ever surprised and grateful.

(Also, gorgeous shawl by my amazing wife, who I can hardly believe is still here with me. I am very, very blessed.)

Something random from a while ago that took some time to finish itself up in my inspiration. If that makes sense.

There is something going on with the tea the Gnome and Troll are drinking, and the Elf’s meditation, I think. All connected. I just don’t know what it is.

An androgynous elfling. Just something cute and fun ❤
