Blessed Winter Solstice and early Sunday Gnomedays everyone 🌞 (See here for this year’s “Tock the Gnome” holiday drawing, btw!)
May the Light grow steadily and surely within each one of us, as the sun’s light grows from now on, too!!
Catching up, and as it says, including today’s “World Building Wednesday for “Tock the Gnome!”
Day 10, Ice
Day 11, Bard/WBW 23
The first of two parts of today’s World Building Wednesday! About magic and music together for Tock-verse Elvenkind.
Day 12, Ginger bread/WBE
Second part of today’s WBW! Which led me in a much different direction for these Elves than you might expect….
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 1, “Holly.” – also counting as 12/2’s Sunday Gnomedays.
Day 2, “Tea.”
Day 3, “Reindeer.”
Day 4, “Winter Elf.”
Day 5, “Pine Tree.” (Available with bonus information for “Tock the Gnome” World Building Wednesday here!)
Day 6, “Snow.”
Day 7, “Moon.”
Day 8, “Owl.” – Our first specifically Tolkien-style Elf of the challenge!
(Today’s Sunday Gnomedays will be up later today. Doing my best to get back on track with that and other regular posts, including Tock’s World Building Wednesday.)
Yesterday was quite busy, so thank you very much for your patience again ❤
I’ve written so much about how most “Tock the Gnome” Gnomes live their lives inside the mountain, I wanted to show someone marveling at the outside, instead.
(By the way – in addition to the farm-Gnomes we’ve already learned about, there is another group of Gnomes who would have to deal with the winter weather more directly…. My original plan for this prompt was to feature them, but that didn’t work out. Guess we’ll have to learn more about them in the future!)
Inspired by the non-snowy landscapes of winter (though we are getting some snow here tonight, it seems!).
Also dedicated in gratitude to “The Faerie Handbook” by Faerie Magazine, for including Gnomes in their section about different types of faeries – sometimes, we get ignored, and I am very glad this is not one of those times!
Welcome back, beloved sun, beloved Light of our sky and our hearts!
Hope everyone who’s celebrating is having a lovely time, as did I – and may we all set intention well, and shed this year’s negativity, in Love and Light.
(Aaaaaaand as I may have mentioned before – this makes 3 sets of Sabbat Sketches. Which means next year, there will be a coloring book, as promised!
