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!
As in technology!
“Tock the Gnome” Gnomes rely heavily on steam technology and machinery for day to day life. It brings them comfort and security, especially the upper classes (thus the pointed hats here, as we have discussed).
Day 8 ~ Family
Featuring, therefore, the found-family of the crew of The Bucket, Tock and Bumble’s airship 🌬 Super closeup for this one on Tock and Bumble, to keep it as Gnome-focused as possible, but more on them and everyone else is available anytime at my patreon!
Day 9 ~ Stone
The Gnomes of “Tock the Gnome” live mostly within two mountains, which sit atop a plateau, which the Dwarves live under. I had planned on doing something about the connection between their peoples regarding stone, as earth elementals, but with having to catch up I chose to focus on a single Gnome instead.
She is considering her own connection to the stone of the walls around her (by way of the stone of the caverns that the Gnomes and Dwarves meet in to trade, called Boundary Market).
In Tock’s world, that awareness of Gnomish connection…

Catching up again. Thank you for your patience, dear readers – I do hope you enjoy these drawing challenges anyway and still look forward to the next page!
Catching up ❤ This week has been kicking my butt, so I very much appreciate your patience, and hope you still enjoy these!
Day 6 ~ Prank
The state of the world has been challenging to me (as it has to so many of us lately, I bet), so drawing was a bit more difficult on Tuesday. I had a different idea for this entirely, but I ended up thinking about the idea of cosmic jokes, or cosmic pranks, which led to thoughts about the ‘Powers that Be’ in Tock’s world, and how they push and pull at Tock herself. So here we are.
Featuring the two Gnome goddesses that feature most strongly in her life, Anosmia and Carwen. More about them and the other Gnome gods available on Patreon, btw!
Day 7 ~ Faerie
Tock herself, channeling the fact that Gnomes are faeries too!

Of a sort, anyway:
The Gnomes of Tock’s world begin this level of affection with bumping noses – which is also often done platonically between close friends and family members, buuuuuuut it means a little bit more between two people interested in each other 💕
Lucky for these two ladies their budding romance is between two people of similar class levels, so their story would be a relatively smooth one – more about class stratification issues with tomorrow’s prompt!
Cross-posting this way – indeed it begins, and indeed we are still staying Tock-focused!
Up up and away ❤ Hope you all enjoy.
Happy Gnomevember the first!! Starting with Tock and Bumble and their airship the Bucket, all from my comic “Tock the Gnome” (which I’ll be focusing the month on again, like I did for Orctober).
Full prompt list here – please feel free to use it. Let’s make this month Gnomishly awesome, everyone!!
