dElfcember, days 1 through 8

So I fell into another drawing challenge ^^;

I am very, very busy with commissions right now, but I’m going to do what I can to squeeze these in for fun in-between. As you might have guessed, I’m leaning towards world-building for “Tock the Gnome” again (….<3 ) but any spoilers will be tagged/noted and I will probably include a good smattering of Tolkien-style Elves (and maybe some “Elfquest” ones too!).

Here we go! Prompt list from @monicamarinhoart.

SVE2018, Meditation Practice

meditationpractice_forartemisgeria_rachelillustrates
I was lucky enough to get to sign up for the Scarlet Vision Exchange this year, and this is my gift for artemisgeria on Tumblr. One of her prompts was Wanda and Vision interacting with Doctor Strange, MCU-verse, and I was immediately inspired to do something about Wanda’s mystical training (I so very hope they go this route in future movies. You know, once they fix the Snap damage. Hint hint nudge nudge Marvel). 
So here’s Strange, visiting the Avengers Compound to train Wanda in the arts, specifically meditation for focusing her powers. Vision tags along out of curiosity, and thus our witch finds herself distracted. I imagine Strange banned Vision from participating after this ❤    
Thank you again, Carrie, for the opportunity to draw this scene! I’ve drawn Wanda and Vision before, but getting them specifically MCU-accurate was very fun, and getting to draw Doctor Strange was a very welcome challenge. Really really hope you love it!

Sunday Gnomedays 9-2-18

sundaygnomedays090218_wm

Actually drawn very much specifically for fun on my birthday last week! And inspired, obviously, by “Princess Mononoke” – if you haven’t seen it, these wee folk are Kodama, Japanese tree spirits.

Gorgeous movie and a great reminder of how Faerie is everywhere ❤

(In addition to the excellent environmentalist messages, of course.)

Fanart Friday(ish) – Shreya in a Toph pose

39294443_651343925253009_8151448822266986496_o

Belated Fanart Friday time! I got to play World of Warcraft a little again this weekend, so here’s my monk Shreyatranqa in a classic Toph Bei Fong earthbending stance……because 💚

Greatly inspired by the Grand Avatar & Korra Rewatch I’m doing (….again), this time for research for a panel I’m on about both those series and diversity, at the end of September! More on that as it gets closer, and when it happens. So much studying, but I’m very excited and learning so much already.

Happy Fanart Friday! Have some Haruka x Michiru schmoop (this page in my sketchbook has some complimenting Korrasami on it too, but they’re not done yet, sooooooo posting this anyway).

Outfits specifically from some bonus/promotional art of them from the 90’s anime – 🌟if you know which one, show me by messaging it to me and I will give you a fan-appreciation 30% off discount code for my shop! 🌟

Belatedly, but here we are!

From this past Friday – a sketch I did recently for the amazing DrMistyTang of DeviantArt and Tumblr, of her leading guys, Luke and Mike, from her comic “Grey Eyes.”

Fanart Friday(ish) – Abe & Nuala

fanartfriday_abenuala_rachelillustrates

(Yes, belatedly, whoops.)

Got to finish up this little pencil drawing of “Hellboy II”s starcrossed lovers. My Wife and I rewatched it recently and I still very much wish they’d had a happy ending (to the point that I have a headcanon now of the forest returning Nuala to life upon the condition that she work to prevent her brother’s return. Perhaps someday I’ll get to write it).

(Also, moral of story: Sign me up for that Doomed Romance anytime.)
