Getting much closer to actually being able to mention the Orc Lady’s name, thank goodness.

Just a quick note about where things are

Hi everyone! Thanks as always for keeping an eye out.

Page 53 is very, very nearly done. I hope to get it finished today, and posted later this week. A while ago I’d also queued some sketchwork posts, and I think they’ve all been posted now, so updates will be a little less frequent for a short time (until I can get more sketchwork done and scanned).

As far as planning goes, I do have the next 5 pages mapped out as well as a rough draft of the plot that will cover many more. The way I work, I only map out the specifics of a few pages at a time, to see how the layouts will flow togetherl. I write out the specific dialogue – like what each character is actually, specifically saying – at that point. But before that part of the process, I do write the conversation out in general as I work out where the characters are going next. And of course, I have a general idea of where the story’s going (and an endgame in mind), which may or may not manifest the way I expect.

I’ve also been drawn to brainstorm a lot lately about two races on Tock’s world that we won’t get to see for a long time, but who’s history is very important as to how Tock’s world is now…..

I guess that’s all for now, so hopefully I’ll have more to show you soon :)

Sketch – Root Veggie Gnome

Looks like some pre-Steampunk Gnomish fashion.

Sketch – Tock and the Unicorn

Really really really not canon (yet, anyway), and not sure where this came from. But yes.

Sketch – Rapunzel

Remember how I said that certain fairy tales, as we know them, will be showing up in Tock’s story too?

I couldn’t leave this one out. She’s my favorite, after all.

Sketch – Whoops

With most of the Orcish widow there beneath them, since they were drawn on the same page.

Also, intended this Gnome’s love to be a Dwarf, so I’m not sure why they’d be wearing a Gnomish hat. Hmm.
