fanart, Gnome & Horklumps

Fandom: Harry Potter
Characters/Pairings: a gnome & horklumps
Media used: pencil, fine liner pen with waterproof indian ink, GIMP
Rating/warnings: G, none
Notes/comments: This is the fifth in my magical creatures series, a gnome & horklumps encyclopedia plate this time. The canon description in Fantastic Beasts & Where to Find Them (p. 21) is "The Horklump [...] resembles a fleshy, pinkish mushroom covered in sparse, wiry black bristles. [...] It spreads sinewy tentacles rather than roots into the ground to search for its preferred food of earthworms. The Horklump is a favourite delicacy of Gnomes but otherwise has no discernible use."

Please do not distribute my art without my permission, i.e. do not upload my art to other sites, services, archives, or wikis. That includes uploading the images themselves to your own Tumblr, even with credit. A high resolution version of this art without the URL watermarking is available on request for private, non-commercial uses.

TENTACLESHROOMS! I completely did not remember tentacleshrooms existing, but your depiction is so striking and gorgeous and creepy. And I love the proportions of the gnome's body. And the underground cutaway.

Thank you

Well done. Ugly buggers, aren't they?

Very nice! Do you count providing a link (at a rec newsletter, the [livejournal.com profile] quibbler_report) as distribution of your art? If not, I'd like to link to this. If you'd rather I didn't, no problem.
