Prompt – Candle.
So here’s Mariatu and Arella, of “Tock the Gnome” backstory, with hope and peace (such that one of them didn’t get to know in their time….).
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.
Day 1, “Holly.” – also counting as 12/2’s Sunday Gnomedays.
Day 2, “Tea.”
Day 3, “Reindeer.”
Day 4, “Winter Elf.”
Day 5, “Pine Tree.” (Available with bonus information for “Tock the Gnome” World Building Wednesday here!)
Day 6, “Snow.”
Day 7, “Moon.”
Day 8, “Owl.” – Our first specifically Tolkien-style Elf of the challenge!
(Today’s Sunday Gnomedays will be up later today. Doing my best to get back on track with that and other regular posts, including Tock’s World Building Wednesday.)
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!
Yesterday was quite busy, so thank you very much for your patience again ❤
I’ve written so much about how most “Tock the Gnome” Gnomes live their lives inside the mountain, I wanted to show someone marveling at the outside, instead.
(By the way – in addition to the farm-Gnomes we’ve already learned about, there is another group of Gnomes who would have to deal with the winter weather more directly…. My original plan for this prompt was to feature them, but that didn’t work out. Guess we’ll have to learn more about them in the future!)
Day 25, “Nemesis” ~~ Also counting for 11/25’s Sunday Gnomedays.
In “Tock the Gnome,” it has been a long time since anyone saw a Troll , but the legends Tock holds so dear feature them often enough.
Always changeable, always wise, always dangerous.
This Gnomish adventurer of the past seems to have stumbled upon a very large one – perhaps they were napping amongst the earth, disguised as a boulder, which she happened to step on? Though the stories would say otherwise, I can’t help but hope they leave each other peacefully 💫
Day 26, “Flight”
Tock-verse Gnomes might not have faerie wings, but who says they can’t build them?
(Featuring the husband of one of the characters shown with Tock in a previous entry, and his apprentice. Can you guess who he married?)
