Day 28 – Lonely 

I didn’t feel like drawing something sad, so here’s a Manta ray Mermaid enjoying a moment of solitude. (Shout out to my Wife cause Mantas are her favorite and this design for her has been long overdue.)

(And extra shout out to Jen Goodsell for the heads up about underwater bubble shaping 😅)

Day 29 – Daddy

Dedicated to all the amazing Dads out there, especially those in my life.

Day 30 – Captured

I couldn’t bring myself to draw something unhappy for this one, aaaaand I wanted to draw Misu and Mariatu from “Tock the Gnome” one more time for the challenge, so here they are! Captured hearts, instead ❤

Day 31 – You as a Mermaid

This is more the idea of me than an actual physically accurate representation, aaaand there wouldn’t be mermaid-me without my actual Mer-Wife. So here “we” are together.

Thank you for your patience with the catchup – now onto JuneFae!

MerMay 2018 day 27 – Western

This one was challenging – but when I went with a different association for the West (not the genre), she manifested herself on paper.

(If you’re unfamiliar, in some Pagan paths water itself is associated with the West. So yeah 🙂 ..)

MerMay 2018 days 25, 26 and 20

More catchup! Of the out-of-order variety, too. I had held off on posting Day 20 because I originally wanted to scan it, but this will have to do ❤

Day 25 – Competition

Competition is not my favorite thing ^^; I think of fighting, and meanness, and someone always loses.

So here we have a Spectacled Porpoise mermaid and Bottlenose Dolphin mermaid, since they compete for resources (which apparently has been getting very violent. Which is very scary).

Day 26 – Frustration

(…..half the fun of this is her ruffly top, not gonna lie.)

Day 20 – Foreigner

Featuring Misu from “Tock the Gnome” again.

Her bloodline is able to manifest legs, and breathe air, in order to deal with the surface folk. This moment is from when she goes seeking the help of the Gnomes, but she seems to find a different folk first! More context here at Patreon.

(Aaaaaaand more MerMay coming later today!)

MerMay 2018 days 21, 22, 23 and 24

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.)

MerMay 2018 days 16 and 17

More catchup! Huzzah!

mermayday16_urgent_rachelillustrates

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!

mermayday17_proposal_rachelillustrates

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).
