Something extra, and extra healing 💚
While I’m working on correcting the Orcish tent issue on previous pages (which takes a lot of tracing/redrawing work I can’t just sit down and do without setting up a specific work station), I’ve been using my daily Tock Time* to finish up some bonus illustrations – which will be available as prints, in interest of my upcoming presence at Gears to Corsets, September 27th to 29th!
So here’s the first of those, featuring Tock, channeling some faerie energy through her primary goddess, Carwen.
*For those of you who don’t know, because of my busy schedule, daily “Tock Time” means at least 15 minutes a day working on the newest page of the comic. Since I work traditionally, this usually means just sitting down with pencils pen and paper and physically creating each page. However, things have been different lately, due to the reasons listed above.
Time for another (usually) patrons-only world building post, dear readers!
This week we’re looking at the relationship, at least in some mythologies, between two of the Gnomish pantheon’s most prominent Goddesses….
Time for another (usually) patrons-only world building post, dear readers! However, remember that this month, all new posts are public for a Junefae/Pride Month Open House!
This week we’re looking at a lost Gnomish creation tale….
I’ve also made all previous posts on Gnomish religion available publicly, for extra context – link to those is at the bottom of the story!
Tough night getting motivated to work on things, so random sketching turned into the Gnomish Goddess of Love, Carwen.
I’ve written about her before, but more on the Gnomish Gods will be coming again soon.
Prompt – Myth & Lore. Honor to Persephone and Hades ❤
Full prompt list linked in the About tab above through the end of the week, even though today’s the last day. Just in case anyone’s interested.
One of the religions that features most prominently in Tock’s life is the worship of Anosmia, the Gnomish Goddess of Destruction (Bumble’s family works with Her at least occasionally, as indicated here).
Anosmia has a lot of features and roles, and in this sketch, appears as a Guardian of the afterlife – guiding Gnomish souls from the physical world to the beyond. Which would indicate that in general, Gnomes belief in a world beyond after death that signifies eternal rest and may include reincarnation and/or punishment, depending on the value of their soul and what gods they served in life, etc.

Page 54 should be done soon, but in the meantime, here’s something slightly suggestive in terms of an upcoming theme in the story.
If you don’t mind spoilers, you can read more about that intention/inspiration here.
Thanks, always, for reading 🙂
