WIP – Orcish hair

Work in progress from the next page, of how I draw the Orc Lady’s hair. Takes some time and focus, but very worth it.

Oh, Tock. You so enjoy praise. Even when people look confused about you.

Aaaaand page 54 is up sooner than I expected when I posted earlier this morning :)

Also, lots of unexpected fantasy genre activism going on here lately.

Sketch – Tock in gown

Page 54 should be done soon, but in the meantime, here’s something slightly suggestive in terms of an upcoming theme in the story.

If you don’t mind spoilers, you can read more about that intention/inspiration here.

Thanks, always, for reading :)

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 :)

Looks like some pre-Steampunk Gnomish fashion.
