Sabbat Sketches – Mabon (Persephone)

IMG_20180922_183259_152.jpg

Blessed Mabon everyone¬†ūüćā

In my practice, this is when Persephone heads back to the Underworld – not fully in Her power as Queen there, yet, but beginning Her descent and Her reunion with Hades.

Life is a part of Her, the rebirth and the green, but so is the harvest and the falling leaves. The oncoming cold and the care of lost, broken souls. She must miss that part of Herself.

May Her reclaiming of that role be smooth and welcome, may Her Bountiful Mother let Her go with acceptance, if not understanding.

And may Their love be strong as ever, and be our reminder to take care of each other.

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!

‚ÄúTock the Gnome: The Rescue Quest‚ÄĚ 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 ‚Äď an airship pilot ‚Äď 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‚Ķ

Sketch – ScarletVision nose kiss

(Creative title is creative.)

As I mentioned yesterday, I’d had a lot of trouble getting drawing again after the push of show prep and actually doing the festival itself. I did get working on the Tock WIP I posted, eventually, but what really got me drawing again is this.

Moral of the story: When in art-block, start drawing your OTP.

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).

Sketch/WIP – It Works

20180511_135933

SAW INFINITY WARRRRRRR Рno 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.
