Time for another patrons-only world building post, dear readers!
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.
Having a Throwback Thursday moment and wanting to share this with you guys ❤
This was originally a Patrons-only bonus over on Patreon, but with Spring approaching, I saw a robin for the first time (this season) a couple days ago and wanted to celebrate somehow! So in lieu of new artwork, I hope you enjoy this!
(Fun fact that will come up eventually: Onna is afraid of birdies. Even sweet little ones ^^; )
Many more bonus sketches and extra world-building information available on Patreon too, at any pledge level. Aaaaaaand stay tuned this Saturday for a special, related announcement!
Available as a 5×7″ print on Etsy!
A sketch I did a little while back for fun, finished up per request! Very grateful to have gotten to do more work on it. Shoujo moments are super beautiful and fun.
Two Gnome women bumping noses, indicating their romantic interest in one another.
In Gnomish courtship, bumping noses is the step before – and just as serious – as the first kiss. Its often used to clarify intentions, if the two involved were friends first. Touching noses is also sometimes a greeting between family members, but obviously in a different context and with different weight.
