Creature drawings for my new book

I’m outlining my new book – something quite different this time, not part of The Sisters series (The Story Trap, The Broken Path).  I’m doing the world-building, figuring out how the story world works.  I find it helps a lot to draw potential characters or possible creatures.

This is a household creature,  the kind that will do little jobs for a saucer of milk, but will do mischief too, if you ignore or insult them. A sort of brownie or nisse:


This one is something like a garden hobgoblin.  She’s a lot more patient than the brownie:


And I’m not sure what this is.  A sort of scavenging feral creature?  A sort of ratling?
