"Underworld Dreams," pencil sketch

I was researching Badgers recently as power animals (they’re one of mine), and one of the articles I read mentioned them as guides to the Underworld. So of course, I thought of my Hades and Persephone Gnomes. And what with the race of Badger People in my graphic novel…..this happened.

Not canon for “Tock the Gnome,” though, so here it is instead of there.

"Dear Husband," ink and colored pencil, roughly 5.5 by 7ish inches

Something not exactly canon relating to “Tock the Gnome.” One of Bumble’s brothers, with his husband.

Drawn for my llady, who’s been very busy recently preparing for and going to several festivals with her business.

The non-canon-ness is because these two are a somewhat accidental reference to a couple other someones. So yes.

Sketch, Persinette and Sumomo

My old WoW toons Persinette (Gnome warrior) and Sumomo (Gnome priest).

I miss gaming.

"Lovers Spat," sketch in pencil

More of Hades and Persephone as Gnomes, with a bit more Tock-flair this time (and a mischievous faerie, of course).

"Earth King and Queen," colored pencil and ink

Finally finished this very personal piece, which I’ve been working on for almost a year, I think (I know I posted the skechwork here in May).

Persephone and Hades. As Gnomes. Earth Queen and King.

And in case anyone’s interested, flower symbolism:

Above Persephone:

Freesia – innocence and thoughtfulness
Gladiolus – strength of character
Blue iris – faith and hope
Purple lilac – first love
Pink rose – sweetness, elegance and grace

Below Hades:

Gardenia – purity, secret love
Hydrangea – gratitude for being understood
Orchid – refinement, mature charm
Lavender rose – love at first sight
Stock – happy life, promptness
