World Building Wednesday 27 – Romantic Relationships

Time for another patrons-only world building post, dear readers!

img_20190116_174011_162

This week we’re talking about romance –  where that fits within some of the cultures Tock and Bumble have started to encounter, and what each culture intends for that to be.

Full post here.

Sunday Gnomedays 12-30-18, dElfcember days 27, 28, 29 and 30

Almost caught up, and only one more after this!

More catchup and Gnomish-Elven connection ❤ (And only one more left for this challenge, after this!)

IMG_20181230_091413_174Sunday Gnomedays 12-30-18/dElfcember day 30, “Bonds”

Specifically, bonds of friendship.

I’ve been thinking a lot about my own friendships over the last couple of days, and though I don’t always keep in touch very well, I appreciate every single person I am able to call friend – be it a friendship in person, or a bond that was created over fangirling and artwork online.

Thank you, every one of you, for being here for me.

Featuring Tock, of my “Tock the Gnome,” and Luke from my friend DrMistyTang‘s amazing comic “Grey Eyes.”

(Couldn’t not draw one of her “elves” for this challenge, too!)

IMG_20181227_171353_548Day 27, “Dobby”

From “Harry Potter,” of course, loving his Free Elf self!

IMG_20181228_091513_532Day 28, “Unicorn”

This one was really calming to draw 🙂

Also, this one does still count…

IMG_20181225_174103_711Prompt, “Ancient.”

So between this one and yesterday’s prompt of “Totem,” this week at “Tock the Gnome” we’re talking about the Elves and the nature of Faerie, and how that impacts their existence.

dElfcember days 21, 24 and 25

Last one for today – will try to keep more on top of these for the rest of the challenge ^^;

(And keep an eye out for World Building Wednesday tomorrow!)

Rachel illustrates : fantasy art and Faerie faith

More catchup, and some notes for tomorrow…

IMG_20181224_145158_185Day 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 😊

IMG_20181225_115143_534Day 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 🤫

IMG_20181225_173616_110Day 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!

Prompt list from @monicamarinhoart.

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

Rachel illustrates : fantasy art and Faerie faith

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

IMG_20181223_125512_649Sunday 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_676Day 20, “Gold”

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

IMG_20181223_131059_300Day 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!

Prompt list from @monicamarinhoart.

49102300_719293348458066_5224277096481685504_oDay 18, “Marshmallow”

Which, unconventionally, made me think of their soft sqwooshy texture, which led to this (……I was also very tired at the time).

48891710_719817881738946_7345150316821610496_oDay 19, “Stars”

“I give you the light of Eärendil, our most beloved star. May it be a light for you in dark places when all other lights go out.” ~ With Fanart Friday flavor! Which led me to Galadriel 💫 She is easily among my favorite Elven characters and one of the best characters in such a male dominated story (a story which I love, buuuuuuut still).

Prompt list from @monicamarinhoart.
