Again again!

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

A new page of “Tock the Gnome” is now up for reading!

Or start from the beginning here

~

“Tock the Gnome: The Rescue Quest” is about a Gnome woman named Tock, who lives in a Steampunk culture in a high fantasy world. Driven by a Fairy Tale about a trapped Elven princess on a floating island, she convinces her friend Bumble – an airship pilot – to join her quest to rescue her. They hire extra firepower from unfamiliar lands, and together they seek the island and the princess. But what they seek may not be quite what they expected…

NOTE: Will contain lesbian romance, size-positivity, Faerie, spiritual magic, conundrums and tomfoolery.

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.

Half commentary on traditional-culture Gnomish gender stratification, half ridiculous whimsy !
Also, Dude Gnome is inspired by a cute pin I got from a local gift shop. You can visit them here – www.ithacaisamusing.com/

And also also, this was not my first Gnome drawing this week. I was inspired otherwise, but got excited and posted that on my Instagram early.

“Persephone and the Dark Heart”

Lots of unexpected Persephone energy around me this weekend, so here She is again, in devotion. Someone who follows me elsewhere asked what She was holding, and I explained its a dark heart – and realized I believe She cares for such things. Those dark and damaged souls.

Grateful to find that this had meaning even beyond what I intended ❤

So, extra Happy Sunday Gnomedays again! Hope you’re all enjoying these, and see you next week!
