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

Another page done :)

Also, trivia time – I started this comic because, back in 2010, I wanted to submit a shorter webcomic to Crossed Genres for the membership section of their website. If I’d gotten in, I would have had to limit the story to 52 pages (one per week for a year). So if that had been the case, this page – the 52nd – would have been the last one.

While it would have been nice to have a finished comic by now, and I do struggle with getting pages done, I’m still glad where I’m at now and how much further I’m able to go with the story as it has developed.

“Crashing the Ball,” illustration

"Crashing the Ball," ink and colored pencil, Tock the Gnome

Finished up this sketch :) Also neglected to mention in the sketch description that, apparently, Bumble counts down from high numbers when he’s stressed. As usual, Tock doesn’t notice.

And again, I hope to write something to go with this, so you might see it updated in the future.

Oh, and a Blessed Beltane/May Day, everyone <3

“Dance Lessons”

"Dance Lessons," illustration, "Tock the Gnome"

Remember this lineart? Well, finished it up.

Things are changing, yes, but I’m still very excited to see what happens with these two.

Happy new year, everyone :)

Also, still watermarking the pages now, and I didn’t do as much editing post-scan on this one. Please let me know if looks different in a bad way. And of course, thank you for reading.

A little something while we wait

Hi everyone!

Since this  hiatus is taking a bit longer than I’d hoped, I put up a poll on my deviantART page recently, asking if anyone would be interested in seeing something special as a bonus until the next page is done. Most everyone voted yes (thank you!), so here that is.

NOTE: the following image contains very slight spoilers, for the setup of the world itself (not the overarching plot).

I did this illustration a while back in order to get out of an art slump, and held off on posting it then in interest of showing it to you waaaaaay later, but you are all amazing for hanging in there and waiting so long  for new pages, so here it is now!

These women are versions of specific characters from two popular fairy tales (well, one more popular than the other, but I don’t want to give too much away). That’s all I can say for now, except to mention that they will be referenced later in Tock’s story.

Thank you all again for your patience. I hope to be back to regular updates within a month.

And we finally get to see Tock’s outfit from this part’s cover page in full! Probably my favorite clothes to draw so far.

Bonus art – Gnome/Dwarf lovin’

So these are not characters who will actually appear in the story per se (and please excuse the bumps in the paper from the scan). I drew this for my amazing girlfriend (and co-creator of Tock’s story) recently and wanted to share.

These two are actually based on a couple of our toons from WoW, drawn as if they existed in Tock’s world. I imagine the Gnome woman is a soldier in the Queen’s army (the jacket should look familiar), and the Dwarven woman is a rogueish individual involved in a kind of black-market trading (due to a certain level of strictness in Dwarven culture – more on that some other time).

This should be the last piece of bonus art before page updates resume! Thanks again for your patience, and for reading :)

Character profile images – Tock and Bumble

As previously seen in-progress.

Head on over to the Characters page in a day or so to see these individually with character information!
