Catchup – FFW 7, Sunday Gnomedays, notes with a Tock <3

Greetings, everyone ❤

I haven’t been up to posting much this week, due to personal things and prep for vending at Ithacon, so here’s some things that “should” have already been posted.

(Friendly reminder, “shoulding” on oneself is never helpful and I do not endorse it! But I am grateful for your patience.)

Drew this very faerie Tock for self care, and posted it on Instagram yesterday to make note that I have still been creating, though my plans for what I’m bringing to the con had had to be adjusted. I had hoped to have “Tock the Gnome” issue two finished, but there’s not going to be enough time for me to do that well and have it there on time, so that has been changed to Preorder status instead! More on that, and what bonuses will come in the issue, soon.

I will be bringing my existing work and some new prints though, including Prints for Pam-a-Lamb – which are available now, with all proceeds going to the National LGBTQ Task Force.

Fairy Fae Week 7/Sunday Gnomedays 3-10-19

IMG_20190311_184355_067

Aaaaaand catching up (and finishing!) the Fairy Fae Week challenge! Day 7, Romance/Forgotten (how could I not pick the Seelie side again, writing what I do?). So here’s “Tock the Gnome”s Princess Bartelbia, recently revealed in Patreon bonus material, with a love letter!

And one more thing:

“Tock the Gnome” World Building Wednesday 35 – The Orc and Brogh conflict, two stories….

IMG_20190313_213347_823

Curious about why the Orcs and the Brogh think they’ve been warring forever?

Full post available here!

Thanks again for your patience, and hope you look forward to what’s to come! More on con prep and Tock progress soon.

Day 21, “Gift”

Featuring Misu and Mariatu of “Tock the Gnome” backstory, and the gift that is their life together after many, many trials.

This drawing also now belonging, appropriately, to my Wife, as part of her own Yule gift 😊

Day 24, “Red”

Bringing to my attention that that two other characters from a different part of that backstory have a red color scheme, and it just so happens that one banished the other…. but that’s all something that Tock herself needs to learn about, so 🤫

Day 25, “Totem”

So, an Elf and a symbol of her local forest spirit 🦌

This and tomorrow’s prompt will be combined for World Building Wednesday, stay tuned for more Elven Faerie connection!

Happy holiday, by the way, to everyone celebrating today!

Sunday Gnomedays 12-23-18, dElfcember catchup 20 & 22

Posting out of order in order to accommodate Sunday Gnomedays, that is ^^; Day 21 of dElfcember will be up later.

Sunday Gnomedays 12-24-18/Day 23, “Pomegranate”

Featuring my Gnomish Persephone with an Elven Hera – what better than an Elf for the Queen of the gods? And what better context for this scene than the symbol of Persephone’s choice to marry Hades?

IMG_20181223_091335_676

Day 20, “Gold”

….anybody else think that Elf is gonna be toast in a moment?

IMG_20181223_131059_300

Day 22, “Dragon”

(Had to draw something sweet after the humor of the Gold prompt.) “Tock the Gnome” Elves are well aware of Dragons and generally get along with them, on an individual elf-to-dragon basis. Once again, there is MUCH of her own world that Tock has yet to discover!

“Tock the Gnome” WBW 24, dElfcember 17

20181219_095652

(I have been heavily bitten by the Krampus bug this year, especially on the actual day of this prompt, so I couldn’t resist!)

Prompt – Dwarf Goat.

As for World Building Wednesday, we’re talking this week about Elven moralism and the spirits that might step in to teach lessons!

Sunday Gnomedays 12-16-18 and dElfcember 14, 15, 16

Some catchup, with Elven-Gnomish communication!

IMG_20181215_123801_512

Day 14, “Crystals”

I imagine that where the Elves of “Tock the Gnome” live, the caves are like crystal forests.

IMG_20181215_151505_668

Day 15, “RapunzElf”

I also feel like those Elves would have a lot more ethereal version of this tale, but I went a more traditional route anyway. So consider this semi-canon, for the comic ^^;

Day 16/Sunday Gnomedays 12-16-18, “Magic”

Featuring some “Tock the Gnome” secrets, not that the Gnome here understands the sense she’s getting!

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.
