So here’s Mariatu and Arella, of “Tock the Gnome” backstory, with hope and peace (such that one of them didn’t get to know in their time….).

dElfcember, days 1 through 8

So I fell into another drawing challenge ^^;

I am very, very busy with commissions right now, but I’m going to do what I can to squeeze these in for fun in-between. As you might have guessed, I’m leaning towards world-building for “Tock the Gnome” again (….<3 ) but any spoilers will be tagged/noted and I will probably include a good smattering of Tolkien-style Elves (and maybe some “Elfquest” ones too!).

Here we go! Prompt list from @monicamarinhoart.

Day 25, “Nemesis” ~~ Also counting for 11/25’s Sunday Gnomedays.

In “Tock the Gnome,” it has been a long time since anyone saw a Troll , but the legends Tock holds so dear feature them often enough.

Always changeable, always wise, always dangerous.

This Gnomish adventurer of the past seems to have stumbled upon a very large one – perhaps they were napping amongst the earth, disguised as a boulder, which she happened to step on? Though the stories would say otherwise, I can’t help but hope they leave each other peacefully 💫

Day 26, “Flight”

Tock-verse Gnomes might not have faerie wings, but who says they can’t build them?

(Featuring the husband of one of the characters shown with Tock in a previous entry, and his apprentice. Can you guess who he married?)

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!).

Gnomevember 2018 day 11/Sunday Gnomedays 11-11-18

IMG_20181111_204357_785

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!

More Gnomevember here ❤

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.

Sunday Gnomedays 10-28-18 AND Gnomevember list!!!

Belatedly, but still:

IMG_20181028_170351_969

Also for Orctober day 28, “Breath.” And featuring an Orc noblewoman and a Gnome noblewoman, to account for the hat (“Tock the Gnome” Gnomes only wear pointed hats for status reasons and fancy occasions, more on that at Patreon here).

And as for the image itself – we all breathe the same air, don’t we?

AND on another fun note, GNOMEVEMBER APPROACHES!!!

gnomevember2018_rachelillustrates

I will, of course, be participating – but this year, as I did for Orctober, I will be focusing on world-building and bonus art for Tock’s world again! The list has been adjusted slightly, accordingly.

Please feel free to use this list for your own drawings too, tag appropriately, and most importantly – HAVE FUN!!
