….perhaps 1 of 2. We shall see.

This is actually an ink drawing from the Support Job – every day shift I work, I get to pick a ‘guest of the day’ and I do a little drawing for them on the welcome card we write them (I always post those on my Instagram, btw). So this is technically from that, but the idea I have for today’s Sunday Gnomedays may or may not happen as intended, depending on how the day goes….. so anyway, yes, here we are, just in case.

Long winded unnecessary explanation is long winded and unnecessary.

Really meant to draw something cute this week, but I appear to be channeling the sadness of current world affairs. Can’t help but feel like Faerie itself is saddened, too.

Again again!

For the most part the last few have been more emotionally heavy, so I’m pleased that this one came out fun πŸ˜€

Extra magic this week, due to my excitement over that contest entry I just posted!

Also, I feel like she knows something about us, but is not going to say….

Again πŸ™‚

Hope it was a happy one, everyone ❀

So the lovely DrMistyTang, Zimeta and ratscout have been holding a contest over on deviantART for their very, very fun series, “The Chronicles of Dru.”

(Contest information and all entries here.)

Getting this in nearly at the last second, but I had to join the fun! Below is my story submission and first, some supplemental art for it, including character design and details on how Gnomes are in Dru. As much fun as the story was to write, it was a super fun challenge and an honor to come up with Gnomish design for this world.

Now without further ado…

~ For Fairy Love, a “Chronicles of Dru” tale~

Navaie the Elf Witch left Elf Port well over a decade ago, and had no intention of ever going back.
