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!

WIP and coloring page – “It Works”

wip_itworks_inkwork_info_by_rachelillustrates-dcbp4a5

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.

Sketch/WIP – It Works

20180511_135933

SAW INFINITY WARRRRRRR – no spoilers here, just shipping. I am still dying inside though.

I am behind on MerMay, and I am truly going to do my best to channel my fangirling-angst into my original work, BUT I had to draw these gorgeous idiots before I can get back to anything else responsible.

Aaaaaaand to anyone else recovering from seeing it – be kind to yourselves, and remember that crying is normal.

Sketch – Serenity Glomps

sketch_serenityglomps_rachelillustrates

Some quick sketching work from yesterday (this probably took me about half an hour, in between googling for reference images. Sooooo many little details!). I was having trouble getting working, and so, Sailor Moon fanart to the rescue – Crystal Tokyo style!

I imagine Usagi takes advantage of any and all surprise-glomping opportunities, especially where her Mamo-chan is concerned, no matter how queenly she’s supposed to be ❤

Work on “Tock the Gnome,” commissions and show prep resuming as you read this.

Twelve Days of DC catchup

I seem to have fallen behind!

So here we have the rest, together.

In order: Silver Swan, Icemaiden (in the wrong costume, whoops!), Golden Glider, Creeper, Pied Piper, and last but not least – the object of Beast’s Boy’s earlier yearnings – Jinx!

Hope you all enjoyed these! Lots of characters I hadn’t heard of before, despite my fangirling, so I’m happy to have learned something 🙂

And if you’re celebrating today, have a joyous holiday!

Previous ‘Twelve Days’:

Twelve Days of DC – Poison Ivy

12DaysofDC_poisonivy_rachelillustrates

So the lovely Jen Goodsell over on Insta set a new sketch prompt for the Twelve Days of Christmas – Twelve Days of DC, with a prompt list that starts with Poison Ivy.

…..I may not celebrate Christmas, but how could I resist?

I also think the idea is for them to be more holiday themed, which I will attempt for the rest of them. But my own concern for the environment – and Ivy’s concern, of course – won out for this one. So we get her seriousness and her power.

Hope you all enjoy these as I finish up other projects! ❤

 

Clown Wife + Plant Wife

clown_wife_plant_wife

For some reason I’ve been having trouble getting back into the swing of things, art-wise, so I finished up this teeny sketch I did last summer.

OTP time is important too, anyway. And while I totally respect and am impressed by the openness of their relationship, the idea of these two beeeeeeee-yoooooteeful ladies someday getting hitched warms my hopelessly romantic heart.

Original is roughly 2 inches by 4 inches, btw.
