Another fun (for me!) ArtOrder challenge. They have a style guide for gnomes and this week the assignment was to throw the gnome in the wayback machine and figure out how their primitive selves would have looked.
According to the style guide, gnomes are slight, sly tricksters who live in the forest. They dwell among the roots so I imagined a slightly less refined and more monstrous gnome would be more animal-like. The have longer arms and those clingy toes so they can flit among the branches of trees. They travel in packs and use their illusory magiks to sneak up on unsuspecting adventurers and take them down!
Before long I’ll have a fantasy portfolio going :). Thanks for visiting!
