Sunday Gnomedays 6-20-21

With wishes for the best Father’s Day possible to all fathers of all genders 💜

Featuring Tock’s father, Gimcrack Corrigan, and Onna Kin-breaker of “Tock the Gnome” – mostly because I’m on a huge Orc kick right now (thanks to something in particular, omg) but also because sometimes, parent-hood or child-hood isn’t as clear-cut as a direct line from oneself to two parents, heteronormative or otherwise. These two won’t be meeting for a good long while in the comic proper, BUT I know that when they do, Gim will welcome Onna with open arms.

(Which is not to say that Onna didn’t, once upon a time, have a biological father, nor that she lacks parental figures of masculine-presentation in other ways. We’ll be getting to both of those topics in the comic soon ❤ )

(Aaaaaaand blessed Solstice to everyone celebrating! In either hemisphere ❄🌞❄ May the magic of our seasons sustain us all.)

SPN Pride Week – wlw

For spnprideweek over on Tumblr 💖🏳️‍🌈💖 Today’s theme is “wlw/supporting characters,” so I had to throw down the gauntlet for Fairy Hunter (Charlie/Gilda. So underrated!! Especially since, as far as I remember, they were the first consensual, romantic LGBTQ kiss on the whole frakking show).

It’s another busy week, so I can’t contribute every day, but so grateful this event is happening and looking forward to posting for day 7, too 🖤

“Tock the Gnome” page update!

Ding ding! A new page of “Tock the Gnome” is now available for reading.

(Finally!! 💚 And in time for JuneFae and Pride month. Happy happy, all!)

“Tock the Gnome: The Rescue Quest” 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 – an airship pilot – 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…

Proudly contains queer characters and romance, size-positivity, Faerie, spiritual magic, conundrums and tomfoolery.

Sunday Gnomedays 6-6-21

With Gnomish Persephone and ghosts 💗

Been leaning on Her more strongly again, after rebellion in my grief, and grateful for feeling on track with her now, in the face of another loss. That said, once I am feeling up to it, I intend to post more for JuneFae including Mermay catchup (and for Pride month too!).

Hope you are all doing fabulously and being extra kind to yourself in the face of your own challenges 🌱🌷🍃

Sunday Gnomedays 5-30 (with Tock WBW and Mermay catchup!)

Extra Gnomish-Faerie style – and time for another “Tock the Gnome” world building post, dear readers! (Thanks very much for your patience last week 🌼 – for those of you unfamiliar, I usually only post the promos for them on my Tock-specific site, but since it’s looped into SG today, here we are!)

Today, based on my own recent experiences, we are looking at a bit of the Heart of Faerie’s intentions in what they are and are not doing to interfere in what the organized races are doing to the realm.

Click here for the full post!

And now for some Mermay catchup!

(Full disclosure – I have fallen quite behind on these, so whatever ones I don’t get to on the prompt list by Monday will be finished as part of Junefae.)

16 ~ “Reef,” as previously seen in WIP for the Sunday Gnomedays of it’s day!

17 ~ “Rockabilly,” which reminded me of the lovely Serafina from “Tangled the Series” – an actual, canon plus-size Mermaid from Disney!!! I haven’t gotten to finish watching the series yet, so I hope she shows up again by the end 💕 She already has a strong Rockabilly vibe, imo, but I tried to push it a little further for her here (seriously, she is so fun. Must treasure her always always ….also I know I got her tattoo on the wrong arm. I was drawing from a screencap and still wanted to include it 😅).

18 ~ “Dolphin,” so, another Tock-world Merperson of the backstory – Ursaety’s best friend Marcissa, with the common dolphin that inspired her tail! (…..they’re my favorite! 🐬💕)

19 ~ “Archer,” in which water magic means I get to make an ironic pose reference. Sending you immediate virtual fistbumps if you get it!

20 ~ “Royal,” featuring Ursaety’s mother, the Morgan Tenebra (both of “Tock the Gnome” backstory, again). Though she is the worst, she was very fun to draw. Hand pose reference from Adorka Stock.

21 ~ “Citrus,” featuring the similarity between the bumps on an orange and the dotting patterns of freckles.

(Everything in this week’s catchup, except for Serafina, can be considered Tock-canon! Huzzah!)

Sunday Gnomedays 5-23-21

Not what I intended, but. Something.

Life has been extra extra recently, so between that, falling behind on Mermay (as a result of that), and traveling to visit my family for the first time in over a year( ❤! ) from today until Wednesday, I will be taking the week off to rest, visit, and catch up on the actual drawing of things.

More Merfolk will be up as soon as possible, as will anything that hasn’t been cross-posted properly. “Tock the Gnome” World Building Wednesday will be up Sunday the 30th, instead.

Thanks for your patience. Have a lovely week, all 🦡💞

Sunday Gnomedays 5-16-21 (with Mermay Catchup)

WIP style 😅 Things have gone differently than planned, today, so thusly, today’s Sunday Gnomedays only has a hint of the Mermay goodness that it will (eventually) include. What do you think is going on with this Gnomish Gnoble, hmmmm?

(And Gnoble, or noble, meaning that this is a Gnome of Tock’s realm, in the past. Tock-world Gnomes only wear their pointed caps on special occasions, or more constantly if they’re of the upper classes. I’ve been inhaling a lot of Regency era stories lately, soooooooo….. ❤ This is technically canon, but to find out how, you’ll have to keep reading the comic!)

Further catchup:

(All prompts from Maegan Cook.)

10 ~ “Dessert,” Sometimes you just gotta crash a land party and grab some cake, you know? 🍰🧜🏽‍♂️💕

11 ~ “Spooky,” …..though I feel like I went in a slightly more creepy direction 😅 Inspired by anglerfish, as they are the most unsettling undersea creatures, imho, which I say with the utmost respect.

12 ~ “Cyborg,” Went a bit more steampunk to fit into “Tock the Gnome” a bit better (I imagine they’re a survivor of a certain time of strife in the backstory, and in the unrevealed future, get help from Gnomish ingenuity).

13 ~ “Gold,” Had to go goldfish style this time, since we had orange paper available! I feel like she is on her way to visit a Sea Witch of some delightful kind 💫🌊💕

14 ~ “Arctic,” To which I declare Narwhal Merfolk sovereignty!!! …..I may be extremely enthusiastic about this Merperson and they may (absolutely) be showing up again later in the month. I have zero regrets 🌊❄💙

15 ~ “Pet,” Meaning a treasured companion and family member. Throwback to the snails that Tock-world noble Merfolk used to ride back in the day. They’re still around, just kept differently, now.
