Just because “Tock the Gnome” Gnomes don’t have magic now, doesn’t mean they never have……… 😉

Featuring Gnomish goddess Kimmer, of soil and plants. More about her and the other Gnome gods of Tock’s world here.

Prompt, “Healing”

Since the Gnomes of “Tock the Gnome” do not have access to magic, they rely on physicians and their physics (medicines) for any ailments. And who makes those medicines? An apothecary! ….This absolutely does not match what I had in my head btw, but I hope the idea is still charming 😅 Also hoping/planning to develop this thought more in the future. Keep an eye on World Building Wednesday for that!

Gnomevember 2018 days 8 & 9 – Family & Stone

More catchup!

Day 8 ~ Family

Featuring, therefore, the found-family of the crew of The Bucket, Tock and Bumble’s airship 🌬 Super closeup for this one on Tock and Bumble, to keep it as Gnome-focused as possible, but more on them and everyone else is available anytime at my patreon!

Day 9 ~ Stone

The Gnomes of “Tock the Gnome” live mostly within two mountains, which sit atop a plateau, which the Dwarves live under. I had planned on doing something about the connection between their peoples regarding stone, as earth elementals, but with having to catch up I chose to focus on a single Gnome instead.

She is considering her own connection to the stone of the walls around her (by way of the stone of the caverns that the Gnomes and Dwarves meet in to trade, called Boundary Market).

In Tock’s world, that awareness of Gnomish connection to any element would come with magical awareness, too, but that has been sorely lacking in Tock’s time…. 🤫

Gnomevember 2018 days 6 & 7

Catching up ❤ This week has been kicking my butt, so I very much appreciate your patience, and hope you still enjoy these!

Day 6 ~ Prank

The state of the world has been challenging to me (as it has to so many of us lately, I bet), so drawing was a bit more difficult on Tuesday. I had a different idea for this entirely, but I ended up thinking about the idea of cosmic jokes, or cosmic pranks, which led to thoughts about the ‘Powers that Be’ in Tock’s world, and how they push and pull at Tock herself. So here we are.

Featuring the two Gnome goddesses that feature most strongly in her life, Anosmia and Carwen. More about them and the other Gnome gods available on Patreon, btw!

Day 7 ~ Faerie

Tock herself, channeling the fact that Gnomes are faeries too!

This will become relevant in the comic eventually….. and this technically stands for this week’s World Building Wednesday as well, but I haven’t exactly decided how much to reveal in connection with this image (without spoilers, that is!) so that will be up on Patreon later.

(Yesterday’s and today’s hopefully on their way later too!)

Gnomevember 2018 day 5 – Mushrooms

IMG_20181105_100155_546

Posting a day late due to life shenanigans yesterday – thanks for your patience everyone!

(Reminder – most of the time I will have these up on my Instagram more promptly.)

The only crop that Tock-world Gnomes harvest from within the mountain (as opposed to the surface, as we discussed on Sunday) are mushrooms – those are grown in caves far in the stone, above the deeper stone under the mountain where the Dwarves live. Mushrooms make up much of the Gnomish diet, and farming them is a historical art passed down among a handful of families who have been doing pretty much just that for generations.

It is said that they have an unexplainable knack for it….

Sunday Gnomedays 11-4-18, Gnomevember 2018 day 4

IMG_20181104_085056_700

Prompt, Animals 🐏

“Tock the Gnome” Gnomes who live in the cities don’t interact with animals too much in Tock’s time, but the few small communities that live on the mountains’ surface are very dependent on them (as are the city Gnomes, actually, they just don’t think about it) – aside from farming vegetables, there are also many sheep farms, from where the Gnomes get fiber to make their clothes and other linens!

So here is a shepherd , possibly on his way to market with his flock, if the fancy pointed hat is to be any indication.

Gnomevember 2018 day 3 – Hat(s)

IMG_20181103_183140_677
Focusing on the difference in the hats they wear, of course! 
I’ve mentioned before here that pointed hats are worn very specifically for special occasions, the only Gnomes that wear them constantly are the upper classes – the wealthy, and nobility, that is. Those persons probably also have several hats, too, while the working class usually only have one (and the poorest Gnomes would not even have one at all).** 
So here’s two Gnome ladies of very opposite classes, swapping hats for their own reasons (but also to show that that’s definitely an area of their culture that needs to grow. Check out the comic to see how things go!).
**Gnomes don’t have much of a written history, but there is some historic artwork that survives showing all sorts of Gnomes wearing pointed hats on a regular basis. If someone ever brings up what this might mean, people around them often politely and conveniently change the subject.  Best not to rock the boat, after all.
