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.

Sketch – Tock Conflicted

Sketch, "Tock Conflicted," Tock the Gnome


“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.


Linework – Tock’s family

Tock's family, "Tock the Gnome"

Well, immediate family, that is.

Planning on adding a little color to this, but that hasn’t happened quite yet. Eventually.

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.

The situation that prompted the filler for the last few weeks** hasn’t been resolved yet, but here this is even though its not finished. It’ll be updated with color by next Monday at the latest.

**If anyone’s curious, I wrote a Journal over on my dA site with more details and news about some other art-related things I’m working on.

Real life has put me behind on comic work this week, so Page 21 will be a few days late.

In the meantime, here’s an exclusive sneak peak.
