Faebruary 2022 the twenty-seventh AND twenty-eighth (challenge complete!) ❤

Catchup for day 27!! Prompts from PadawanDesign (jumping backward on their list a bit) and PhoenixFeathersArt – “Mech” and “Stars.”

So, some softness for Onna after the angst I drew her in yesterday, and something a bit AU for her and her dear Tock (both of “Tock the Gnome” ) – or at least we’ll see if this happens.

I know how it would fit. I know what certain new jewelry means. I know who would give them wings like this, and for what occasion…. 💕

Day 28!! From HitorikArt’s “Key” (from day 27) and PhoenixFeathersArt’s “Moon” (to pair with the Star theme above, since the prompts were presented together!).

Featuring my friend Glombie’s OCs, Frelwic the Gnome and his boyfriend, Ælfric the knight. We’d talked about them a while back, and I was so excited to finally get to draw them both! ….I do not know what their story is yet, though, so I hope this doesn’t contradict anything – but even that, making it AU in that case, is in and of itself very Faerie, yes? That space of liminality. Possibilities. So I feel like both of today’s entries are a perfect note to end on.

…..and not just because of the schmoop. Though the schmoop helps.

(And everybody check out Glombie’s work, it is super charming! Go go!)

Aaaaaand that makes a complete challenge!! I went into this intending to be super casual about it, and of course failed at that, and still have so many things bouncing around my brainspace that I’d hoped to draw for this but didn’t make it in. Still, I chose to participate because I hoped it would jumpstart my creativity and get me set to work on commissions again (since this winter has been a challenging buttwaffle) and it has done that! Thanks again to everyone who puts out prompt lists and keeps the event going, and especially to Hitorik, who invited me in the first place.

Here’s to whatever is next! I’m gonna go take a nap.

Faebruary catchup! Days 26, 23, 24, 25 (with Tock WBW and Sunday Gnomedays!)

Thanks to the insanity of this past week, here we are finally with 4 more Faerie pieces 💗

Firstly,

Day 26 (though having been started earlier) – off-prompt with this one, in light of what’s happening in this human realm right now.

I stand with Ukraine.

Click here for information on how you can help, even if you’re far away.

Day 23, from HitorikArt‘s “Branch” and the spirit of PhoenixFeathersArt“s “Forest.”

Leading into this week’s “Tock the Gnome” World Building Wednesday post – in which we take a quick look at the plantlife of Tock’s realm, and the intention behind the style of the forest of the Lowlands!

Full post here 🌳💕

Day 24, from PadawanDesign‘s prompt “Wind!”

I don’t often feature the vague, sprite-like fae that manifest occasionally in Tock’s story (and backstory! Also, as drawn above!), on their own. So, with this busy week I’ve had, here they are!

This was just… so nice to do. Calm. Simple. Hopeful.

Day 25, from HitorikArtPadawanDesign and PhoenixFeathersArt – “Game”, “Spirit” and “Seelie court/Unseelie court.”

This makes extra sense if you’re familiar with some of the worldbuilding around Tock’s realm. A juxtaposition of the Gnomish goddess Carwen, and her foil/sometimes partner, the Gnomish goddess Anosmia. There are forces at play, in the world 🤫

Also, I’ve mentioned somewhere recently, but I don’t remember exactly where (what’s with today, today?) that though the more traditional courts of Faerie don’t exist in Tock’s realm at this time, beings who could considered Seelie or Unseelie could pop up in any culture, physically manifested or otherwise. That absolutely applies to these two, too. At least from a certain perspective.

Obviously I’m still a bit behind, but this is a start. Please enjoy, and in the meantime – if you haven’t checked out “Tock the Gnome” yet, there’s lots more faerie art and story to tide you over until then!

Faebruary 2022 the twentieth AND twenty-first (and Sunday Gnomedays!)

A bit of a delay due tooooooo an update on my Etsy shop yesterday!! Finally reopened after the holidays (and the massive “What” of January). Now featuring a new character portrait commission option, as well as restocked comics and new prints!

🌼 Click here to check it out! 🍃

And now back to our regularly scheduled Faerie-delight – Day 20, and Sunday Gnomedays!! From HitorikArt‘s “Deer,” with PhoenixFeathersArt‘s “Seelie” and “Unseelie.”

I couldn’t not do the Deer prompt, but as this fell on a Sunday, and considering that the Heart of Faerie (of “Tock the Gnome”) is a very fluid thing…… 🦌💕

More on them here.

And day 21!! From the lists of HitorikArtPadawanDesign and PhoenixFeathersArt – “Amulet” and “Treasure” and “Winter” (again).

It has been an effing heck of a season, already, so I certainly wouldn’t mind a magical amulet that protects me from snowdrifts. Treasure, indeed!

Faebruary 2022 the eighteenth

Day 18!! Today’s prompts from HitorikArt – “Crown,” which pairs very nicely with yesterday’s prompts and post!

Here are the three (current) Gnomish crowns – as mentioned, even though all the wealthy/noble Gnomes of “Tock the Gnome” have and wear pointed caps regularly, and all Gnomes have at least a simple one for special occasions, only the royal family wears caps with actual crowns on them.

From left to right – the sovereign’s (currently worn by Queen Adamine), the heir apparent’s (currently worn by Princess Bartelbia), and the princess/prince/etc. consort’s (previously worn by Adamine’s husband, who has passed away).

If there were two sovereigns of equal rank, a second crown as fancy as the current sovereign’s crown would be made, but that hasn’t been the case in several generations. Prior to Queen Arella’s reign, there were two entirely different crowns than the ones above – worn by two sovereigns at once, always, but little is remembered as to what they looked like or why that was. Hmmmm….

Faebruary 2022 the sixteenth AND seventeenth (“Tock the Gnome” World Building Wednesday too!)

After a bit of a delay due to technical issues 😅

Day 16!! From PadawanArt‘s “Ice” and PhoenixFeathersArt‘s “Unseelie” and “Dark fae” – which means for this week’s World Building Wednesday, it’s time to look at a certain faerie tale set in Tock’s realm, and the implications therein on that people’s culture, magic, etc.

Full post here💕

Day 17!! From PadawanArt‘s list, “Royal.”

So, the Husbands Sprizzenfritz again – Bumble’s brother Ruggels, and his husband Alecs (all from my comic “Tock the Gnome” as well), putting paper crowns on their usual pointed Gnomish caps. Though the wearing of pointed caps in Tockverse Gnome culture indicates a wealthy/noble status and/or the attending of a significant social event, to include a crown at the base of one specifically indicates royalty. Only the Queen and her immediate family are permitted to wear them – spouse/consort and children.

Also, I have my own reasons for choosing these two to play with that idea, BUT suffice it to say that for Tock, their romantic relationship is the Ideal of what romance could and should be – what she wants for herself, and what such a love could manifest in her life, impacting the lives of others – so to her, that means they’re royalty of the heart 💗

Faebruary 2022 the fourteenth

Day 14, a day late, for catchup (but hey, also stretching out a bit of the Valentine’s vibe!). From the lists of HitorikArtPadawanDesign and PhoenixFeathersArt – “Rooster” and “Love” and “Animal Companion” (again).

So! Rooster having made me think of rooster-crowing pretty much right away, we’re in “Peter Pan” territory, which of course means their beloved Wendy, too! Here they are both a little older (shhhh I know that’s against the ideas of their realm just go with it), likely King Peter and Queen Wendy, or Queen Peter and King Wendy if you like, since the Pan knows more than any other that gender is a construct! Had to include an actual rooster, too, symbolizing pride, resurrection and good luck.

Faebruary 2022 the thirteenth (and Sunday Gnomedays!)

Catchup time again, and Sunday Gnomedays!! Day 13, jumping back to day 12 for prompts – from HitorikArt and PadawanDesign, “Firefly” and “Celestial.”

Though its creator is Absolute Bad News, the series “Firefly” holds a special place in my heart – and it’s celestial in a sense, since it’s a space western! 🚀🤠🚀 So, considering certain foofaraw from a certain episode that happens to be my favorite (thanks Jane Espenson!), here’s some Tock Corrigan in cosplay!

(Which should be noted that this was absolutely drawn just for fun and NOT canon at all for my own series.)

If you’re looking for some charming and relatively chill Valentine’s entertainment, do check out “Shindig,” btw! I would say Tock’s up to be your Valentine, if you need one, but Onna is likely to chase you off. They’re both a bit territorial when it comes down to it ❤
