Time for another patrons only world building post! This week, we’re switching gears from the Gnomes (steampunk pun absolutely intended) and looking at the Orcs a bit – specifically how an average Orc spends their childhood.

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

Continuing our theme from last week, here’s a better portrait of the Gnomish royal family, as they are now. We will be looking a bit at what happened to Adamine after last week’s trauma, how this family formed, and where they are now.

“Tock the Gnome” bonus – Wishful Wedding

Some bonus art sweetness. Happy early Valentine’s, all ❤

Rachel illustrates : fantasy art and Faerie faith

wishfulwedding_tockthegnomeHappy early Valentine’s, everyone ❤

Since my previous promotion is ending this evening, I figured I would share this on it’s own.

Featuring Arella and Strahl of my lovely “Tock the Gnome,” in a distinctly non-canon moment (I am mean and never let them be happy). I did this as a self care piece recently and I am very pleased with how it turned out.

I hope you’re all having a great week and look forward to a great day on Thursday, whether you’re celebrating it with a sweetheart or just taking good care of yourself!

Commission – “Maarten the Gnome meets Tock the Gnome at Faerie Festival!”

Rachel illustrates : fantasy art and Faerie faith

maartenmeetstock_wm

Drawn for a dear friend and inspired by our own meeting at New York Faerie Fest last year!

This was honestly SO fun to do. In addition to trying to get the details of each of our characters right (of course), I tried to incorporate the feeling of the festival itself, with little nods to different parts of the festival grounds – and little peeks of other faerie folk enjoying the space! Between that, the stark linework and the banner at the bottom, I hoped to evoke the feeling of old storybook illustrations.

More on Tock available here, and more on Maarten hopefully soon! He has many stories planned, and I can’t wait to see where he goes with them.

Looks like Tock has figured something out – can you guess what it is? 🙂

(Shameless bonus promotion – those of you who are Patrons should be able to figure out some of what’s being said here with the Orcish Language Guide! There are quite a few new words in here, which will be updated in part 2 of the Guide soon.)

Thanks for your patience with updates, too – if the slow updates bother you, keep in mind that we’re getting closer to my first goal on Patreon, $50 monthly, which means I would guarantee a new page each month!! So if you’re not pledging me on Patreon yet, but enjoy reading Tock’s story, please do consider signing up!
