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.

Gnomevember 2018 day 27 – Snow

IMG_20181127_212027_840

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!)

More Gnomevember here 🍄

Sunday Gnomedays 12-24-17

sundaygnomedays122417_rachelillustrates

Time again!

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!

(And everyone go check out the book, it is *gorgeous*. Available here on their site and here on Amazon, as well as through many other retailers.)

Snow Queen 2017 – Designs, Ba and the Ravens

Happy opening night of The Cherry Arts’ “The Snow Queen,” everyone!

I’ll be posting this year’s design work bit by bit as the weeks progress! The show runs for the next three weekends, so I hope this inspires you to come out and see the magic 😀

Here are three of the helpful creatures Greta encounters along her journey – a Wild Raven, a Tame Raven, and the reindeer Ba.

Really loving how these came out, and really hoping that you do, too!
