Always - Three by rachelillustrates Always - Three by rachelillustrates
One of four pieces done for my llady, :iconladydragontear:, for her birthday this year. They show Misu and Mariatu, two of the characters from my Books who remind me of us, at various points in their life. They're framed together in a very stacked, circular-kinda way, and in that case aren't in chronological order. However, since there is an order, I'm posting them that way here. I'll post a photo of the framed piece later.

This shows a part of the story I recently decided on. My merpeople reproduce as I explained here - [link] So later in life, Misu has the opportunity to do this. And she does, creating the tiny baby she's breastfeeding as she walks up the path to her very surprised wife. I imagine Ayame is close to grown up at this point, too.

The blue shadowing is very cool. Of course, I guess they'd be underwater if they're merpeople. Very nice.

Thanks! They're actually not underwater here, though. Mariatu is a normal "elf," while Misu is part of the royal line of merpeople, which means that she (and her daughters) can shapeshift from air-breathing with two legs to water-breathing with a tail.

Ah. I read 'merpeople' and made an assumption. See what happens when you assume?

Still, I'm hung up on the blue shadowing. For some reason, it just blows my mind. :)

I think I like this one the best of the three. It's a very moving piece. A beautiful example of motherhood.
