Fairy Fae Week, days 1, 2 and 3

Sooooo I joined another drawing challenge on Instagram ^^; “Fairy Fae Week,” with two prompt options per day, one “light” (or seelie) one “dark” (or unseelie). I’ve needed something to get myself motivated lately, and I simply couldn’t resist! Keeping them Tock the Gnome themed as usual, and will be posting these as often as possible but probably in bunches, as usually happens). On-time updates will be available on my Instagram.

Day 1, Free/Caged

For Tock the Gnome, freedom comes from the stories that inspire her! So here she is, atop them, with with wings growing from that inspiration.

(And what are faerie wings but a manifestation of freedom, too?)

Day 2, Dream/Nightmare

Something dreamscapey, then, with the crew (and a random Brogh woman, who I feel is descended from certain backstory characters). Inspired by my own dreams last the night previous.

Day 3, Light/Dark

For this one, I chose both, and featured it for World Building Wednesday at “Tock the Gnome!” Click here to check it out.

Day 15, “Heroic”

I’ve mentioned before in some of the “Tock the Gnome” Patreon bonuses that these Gnomes, especially the upper classes, are noticeably binary gender-stratified (and that’s starting to get a bit worse in Tock’s time).

As it is in our world, it is SO important that we be allies to each other, and speak up when we see injustice.

Day 16, “History”

…..so, a little bit of Gnomish angst. More about this to be revealed in the future 🤫

Sunday Gnomedays 11-18-18/Day 17, “Cave”

Featuring more of our mushroom farmer from day 5 – though I wonder why she’s heading into that strange light, dressed in her finery and an officer’s coat ……(fun fact: Tock has one of those too. She inherited it from her paternal grandfather. Perhaps this lady got hers in a similar fashion?).

Day 18, “Astronomical”

Went with something simple but I am super charmed by it (aaaaaaaand with this, I am caught up! Yay yay!).

Be A Light

 

be_a_light_by_rachelillustrates-db7ik7v

Originally drawn as a very small ink drawing on the day of the presidential election, this past January. My very political godmother really liked it, and asked for one for herself, so here we are 🙂

I don’t speak much about politics on here, but I must say this was inspired by the darkness and fear so prevalent in the world today. May our hearts be on fire, and may we all be a Light in the face of that darkness.
