Catching up again 😀 We’re almost there!
Day 25, “Love”
This idea came to me, a manifestation of how we must channel Love through ourselves in order to give it to others….. I’m happier with it the more I look at it, but it still doesn’t exactly match what was in my mind. Hope the meaning still comes across okay.
Day 26+27, “History” and “Fire”
I ended up combining these two with the idea that for these Orcs, the central campfire of their tribe’s camp represents their connection to their sun deity and all their ancestors that walked the path of life before them.
Day 28, “Breath”
Featuring an Orc noblewoman and a Gnome noblewoman, to account for the hat (“Tock the Gnome” Gnomes only wear pointed hats for status reasons and fancy occasions, more on that at Patreon here).
And as for the image itself – we all breathe the same air, don’t we?
Day 14, “Leader” (also Sunday Gnomedays 10-14-18)
Since this one fell on a Sunday, we get both Orcish and Gnomish goodness! Which inspired me to illustrate two of those current leaders – Queen Adamine of the Gnomes, and Chieftain Keesa of Onna’s as-yet-unnamed tribe (who’s also been featured in the recent pages of the comic!).
Behind Keesa are echoes of other Chieftains, because she’s not the only one – each tribe has it’s own Chieftain, and they are all equal in Orcish society. The Gnomes, as I’ve mentioned before, have a single monarch – currently Queen Adamine, who’s from a long line of other ruling royals. That relic she’s holding is important to her bloodline, buuuuuuut more on that in the future ❤
More on both of them in general, of course, available in the bonus material at Patreon.
Day 15, “Capture”
…..which stumped me at first, but then this hit me very clearly and DEMANDED to be drawn. As far as I can tell, there’s more to this abduction that it seems, and I think that “princess” is going to be just fine.
Quick shoutout and cross-post from my main site – every Sunday, I post a new Gnome drawing, and this week it happens to be Tock-related!
Anosmia and Carwen, two goddesses from the Gnomish pantheon. They’ve been mentioned a couple times in the comic, but you can read even more about them over on Patreon. Many other bonus features are also available there!
And most importantly, happy Sunday! May we all have a very faerie day ❤
(And again, if you check out rachelillustrates.com every Sunday, there’s a new Gnome drawing available! Any Tock-related ones will be posted here as well, but still. I missed Gnomevember.)
