It was a rather dark and cloudy night. A little gnome was on his way home; he had gathered herbs all day and had forgotten about the time and now the sudden sunset had surprised him.
He was usually a very calm little fellow but couldn't ignore the matter of fact that the darkness actually made him a bit anxious; who know what was lurking in the dark? There could be bears... or maybe wolfs... or maybe even a troll! They would all like to eat him. What if he met a goblin? It would sure bring him back to it's camp where they would torment him and then eat him as well!
The little gnome nervously started to walk faster... then he heard something... wasn’t there
something in those bushes looking at him…? He started to run. Now it was too late for him; why, oh why, hadn't he gone home earlier?
He rushed over fallen trees and old moss-covered rocks while he repeatedly stumbled upon his long beard. Suddenly he reached a little door placed at the bottom of a big tree; he was home. The gnome looked around while heavily panting and suddenly realized that he maybe never had been followed.
Then he entered the door a little bit quicker then usual and locked it; ones could never be too sure after all.

This is one of the first pictures where I've worked with other light then just "straight-from-above-daytime-light". I like this picture, I think it turned out very nicely even if it has some little faults in it ;)
Ink, pen and watercolor
