dElfcember 13, “Wolf”

IMG_20181213_115811_560

With a Wolfrider from “Elfquest,” of course!

Had to had to. I’m very grateful for these comics and what they’ve given me over the years.

“Strange blood! No regrets. We would not turn aside.

It brought us safely through the fire where all the others died.

Strange blood! Howl again, for now we know too well:

Better a friend on paths unknown than be alone in hell!”

~ Leslie Fish, “Strange Blood,”

from “A Wolfrider’s Reflections”

dElfcember, days 1 through 8

So I fell into another drawing challenge ^^;

I am very, very busy with commissions right now, but I’m going to do what I can to squeeze these in for fun in-between. As you might have guessed, I’m leaning towards world-building for “Tock the Gnome” again (….<3 ) but any spoilers will be tagged/noted and I will probably include a good smattering of Tolkien-style Elves (and maybe some “Elfquest” ones too!).

Here we go! Prompt list from @monicamarinhoart.

Catching up, and challenge over!!

Day 28, “Spiritual”

Featuring two priests of two different “Tock the Gnome” deities – also, the basis of this week’s World Building Wednesday on Patreon. Check it out for more information on their goddesses and priesthood.

Day 29, “Fashion”

BUSTLES! FOR! ALL!

As these Gnomes are steampunk/Victorian inspired, I couldn’t resist ❤ Tock herself doesn’t get to rock a bustle very often (since its not as conducive to adventuring) so this was a treat to draw.

Day 30, “Balance”

Ending with Tock herself, looking more piercing and real than usual, surrounded by some vague and creeping symbolism….

That said, CHALLENGE COMPLETE!!! I hope you’ve all enjoyed the “Tock the Gnome” focus on this (and on Orctober last month). I definitely had fun. Please do check out the comic if you haven’t yet and want to see more of this world!

More Gnomevember here 🍄
