As it says ❤
Be it Peacenight-time or an Earthen holiday that warms your heart, may your celebrations be joyous and full of Love!
Thanks for following Tock’s tale this year everyone, especially in the face of some massive delays. Your patience and readership truly mean the world to me. Here’s to next year being the best one yet, for all of us!
As noted before – 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 third of those, featuring a piece I’d previously done as a pencil drawing for Gnomevember. Still a random Gnome noblewoman, taking it upon herself to experience snow for the first time.
*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.
Greetings, new visitors and followers from “The Snow Queen!” I’m so pleased you’ve made your way over here and I hope you enjoyed the show!
Here is a quick rundown of what you’ll find here and on other of my sites:
This site (scrolling right down from here, or at the Archive page): Existing and new pages of my comic in-progress, “Tock the Gnome,” a steampunk/fantasy graphic novel about a Gnome woman on a quest to rescue a legendary Elven princess. Along the way she will learn more about the world she’s been isolated from, and be challenged not only by the characters and creatures she encounters, but by the yearnings of her own heart. Will contain lesbian romance, size-positivity, non-binary gender, fairy tale themes, conundrums and tomfoolery.
I also share occasional bonus art and bonus short stories set in Tock’s world.
Patreon: A crowd-funding website for this project, containing extra goodies not posted here.
rachelillustrates.com: Finished fantasy art and sketches (including one new Gnome drawing every Sunday, called “Sunday Gnomedays”) as well as announcements about other project updates, commissions, etc.
My Etsy: Prints of of my work, coloring books and needle-felted faerie dolls, Gnome Wings, all for sale!
Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you enjoy what you find here! And remember – your program from the show includes a coupon code for my etsy, and if you bought the performance-exclusive Snow Queen coloring book, please tag me ( @rachelillustrates or #rachelillustrates ) so I can see your work too!
Brightest blessings and Faerie Love to all ~~<3
Prompt – Snow Day.
Doing my best to catch up before tomorrow, which is the last day (yikes!). Full prompt list is linked in the About tab above.
Though winter usually inspires her, Tock finds herself upset one year, as romance after romance fails. In her beloved legends, magic (and love) is grand and dramatic. But sometimes, it just takes a friend’s realistic outlook to help one dream again.
Happy New Year, everyone. Thanks, always, for reading ❤
