Gnomevember 2018 catchup, days 13 and 14

It’s been a bit of a rough week, so thank very much for your patience. Hoping to get yesterday’s and today’s done soon, but please enjoy these in the meantime ❤

Day 13, “Craft”

Tock (of “Tock the Gnome,” of course!) learned the airship creation and engineering trade from Bumble’s brother Ruggels, who has been mentioned in some of the bonus material and stories. He’s the closest to her of the Sprizzenfritz brothers (other than Bumble himself), but most of them consider her a friend, and fondly call her Tockster. Their father, Grumblethorpe, feels differently.

Day 14, “Botanical”

Since these Gnomes live mostly in the dark within the mountain, the flowers they grow are also specialized to grow there, too. These are cragblooms.

Also available on Patreon with bonus world building material, for World Building Wednesday 19.

Sabbat Sketches – Imbolc (Persephone)

sabbatsketches2018_persephone_imbolc

Almost late, but Blessed Imbolc everyone 🌱🍃🌹

I wanted a break from doing fae-cultural specific Sabbat Sketches, so this year we’ll be focusing on Queen Persephone (who I’ve been blessedly drawn to lately) and Her cycle through the seasons with Her husband Hades and Her mother Demeter! I feel like it’s going to be a challenge, but I am quite excited and very pleased with this first drawing.

As for their cycle together, I believe right now that the King and Queen of the Underworld are enjoying one last sabbat together below, before Persephone returns to the world above, when spring fully blooms. 💗

Last one of 2017!

Happy New Year, everyone! Thank you so all the likes and follows and lovely comments!

(And thank you, honestly, to “Trollhunters” for inspiring me to do this series! I don’t think I’ve said so before, but the treatment of Gnomes on that show is what got me to dedicate each Sunday to a more positive, spiritual new piece of Gnome art. I’m so glad I did, and I hope you all have been enjoying them too – and please do check out that show, Gnomes aside, it is a very fun story and does Trolls justice!)

Here’s to making next year even more Gnomish!

Snow Queen 2017 – Design, Hyacinth Maidens and Buttercup frame

flowerstories_hyacinthmaidens_wmflowerstories_buttercupframe_wm

More Snow Queen work again!

This year’s production involves shadow puppetry, which I was lucky enough to get to design as well (and the frames for those puppets, too!). In order to expedite the process, the director filled in most of the space with black digitally, so in designing I filled those spaces with pencilwork to indicate what should be darkened, and what shouldn’t. Linework as usual kept the boundaries and finer details.

These are just a couple examples of the work I did for this section of the story – for more, check out the show 🙂  Click here for more information and tickets! I hope very much that you all get to enjoy it.
