Featuring a drawing I technically did last year, but hadn’t gotten to share yet (if I’m wrong about that, I deeply apologize!).
This was supposed to evoke Queen Arella of “Tock the Gnome” backstory, in a moment of nature and healing, paired with the strength of stones. 2020’s been more of a stumble than a dance for me so far, as most winters are, but I am grateful to be moving forward regardless of my level of grace.
Also, a small announcement – there will be no “Tock the Gnome” World Building Wednesday this week, as I work toward a commission deadline. WIPs on the next page will still be posted as often as possible, and existing bonuses are always available on Patreon. Thanks for your patience, dear readers ❤
And an extra hello to any new followers from the Little Red Wagon market this past weekend – you may have seen me working on this there, and I’m very excited to share it now! “Tock the Gnome” patrons, btw, can look forward to a special treat featuring this image for the holidays – any new sign-ups through this Friday, December 20th, will receive one too! Click here if you’d to check it out and sign up ❤
I hope everyone is having a great holiday season so far. Remember to breathe and take care of yourselves. No one can give from an empty well. Not even Tock!🎄💕
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.
