Orctober 2018 day 1, with Prompt List <3

IMG_20181002_162838_945.jpg

Coming to the party a little late, and honestly wasn’t planning on it, buuuuuuuuuut someone asked me for a link to a prompt list. And here we are.

I am aware, also, that my handwriting is terrrrrrible, so here is a more legible list:

  1. Strong
  2. Flower
  3. Rain
  4. Laugh
  5. Rush
  6. 6 Song
  7. Fight
  8. Friend
  9. Tusk
  10. Move
  11. Look
  12. Message
  13. Steed
  14. Leader
  15. Capture
  16. Oath
  17. Stars
  18. Pride
  19. Cairn
  20. Swim
  21. Faerie
  22. Family
  23. Wound
  24. Wise
  25. Love
  26. History
  27. Fire
  28. Breath
  29. Skull
  30. Rest
  31. Magic

The drawing on the left is, of course, my entry for day 1 – Strong. For some reason it made me think of how Orcish strength comes often from community, and how strength itself can be a quiet, interior thing.

Also, in case it wasn’t clear from the style of the Orcish lady above and all behind her – I will indeed be focusing on “Tock the Gnome” style Orcs for this challenge. As such, all future Orctober drawings will be posted over there.

And lastly, please feel free to use this list yourself! Tag me too, if you don’t mind – @rachelillustrates or #rachelillustrates .

Happy Orctober everyone!!!

WIP and coloring page – “It Works”

wip_itworks_inkwork_info_by_rachelillustrates-dcbp4a5

This is demanding finishing up regardless of anything/everything else I have going on.

Aaaaaaand since the linework is so pretty, I figured I’d make a coloring page out of it! Please enjoy and tag me ( @rachelillustrates or #rachelillustrates ) if you use it ❤

Also, in addition to being OBSESSED with these two now (I’m fine. Don’t send help) I highly suggest “Celestial Bodies” by AnontheNullifier if you’re in need of a less catastrophic AU of their development. It’s delicious and perfect.

Greetings, new visitors and followers from “The Snow Queen!” I’m so pleased you’ve made your way over here and I hope you enjoyed the show!

Here is a quick rundown of what you’ll find here and on other of my sites:

This website (scrolling right down from here): Finished fantasy art and sketches (including one new Gnome drawing every Sunday, called “Sunday Gnomedays”) as well as announcements about project updates, commissions, etc.

My Etsy: Prints of of my work, coloring books and needle-felted faerie dolls, Gnome Wings, all for sale!

tockthegnome.com: Existing and new pages of my comic in-progress, “Tock the Gnome,” a steampunk/fantasy graphic novel about a Gnome woman on a quest to rescue a legendary Elven princess. Along the way she will learn more about the world she’s been isolated from, and be challenged not only by the characters and creatures she encounters, but by the yearnings of her own heart. Will contain lesbian romance, size-positivity, non-binary gender, fairy tale themes, conundrums and tomfoolery.

Patreon: A crowd-funding website for the aforementioned comic, containing extra goodies not posted on the .com site.

deviantART: My dA, which houses most of what you’d find here and on the general Tock site.

Tumblr: Same.

Instagram: Same.

Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you enjoy what you find here! And remember – your program from the show includes a coupon code for my etsy, and if you bought the performance-exclusive Snow Queen coloring book, please tag me ( @rachelillustrates or #rachelillustrates ) so I can see your work too!

Brightest blessings and Faerie Love to all ~~<3
