sundaygnomedays10-1-17Happy Sunday Gnomedays AND Orctober the first, everyone!

Have some Tock and Onna cuteness (from my comic “Tock the Gnome”) in the name of Gnomish and Orcish solidarity.

Hope everyone has had a lovely weekend, and since it’s nearly bedtime here, wishing you sweet dreams too!

rangersketch_sept17_sneakpeek

Hello dear readers! Here’s a sneak peek of this month’s Ranger level bonus sketch for “Tock the Gnome” patrons!

Full thing viewable here.

(Happy Arella happens so infrequently, though, I had to share.)

I’ll be posting another bonus sketch there later for all patrons, since progress is very slow this month due to show prep, so I hope you consider checking it out!

See other bonuses here, and full comic readable here!

First ~ Previous ~ Next (coming soon!)

Some people believe in the power of logic, or weapons. Tock believes in the power of kindness, friendliness, and hollering at people across empty spaces.

Also, careful Onna, what’s that on your face there…. And careful Bumble, your Mother-Hen is starting to show.

Sketch – Arella and Strahl kiss

sketch_arellastrahl_kiss_tockthegnome

So, clearly, productivity has been really low this month due to other projects – but I can say that page 79 is very close to done (inkwork viewable here / pencilwork viewable here) and this month’s Patreon Ranger Bonus sketch is on its way.

I’ve been really feeling this part of the world’s backstory lately, so here’s something else about these two in the meantime!

(Also, I’m sure kisses like this will come up again in the comic, and I hadn’t figured out how to draw them yet, so yay for this having come out well! And I had originally planned to draw something else up in the right corner/side, but I actually like how they look with all that space pressing around them.)

More bonuses, backstory content and full comic available at Patreon! (Comic itself is free to read anytime – click here to start ❤ )

Short stories – Five Moments

sketch_fivemoments_sundaygnomedays090317_tockthegnome

One more bonus, dear readers, for Seven Years of Tock!

Here are five small moments, each crew member of the dear Bucket in their experience of the world – before they came together! These happen at varying times in their lives, and speak to the reasons they’ll end up where they are in the comic – which is yet to be seen, in full, but I hope you enjoy this glimpse in the meantime!

Thank you so much for your continuous support and enjoyment of this work. I’m so pleased to share Tock’s world with you and look forward to sharing even more adventures and stories of Faerie magic and Love

Onna

A roar tore through her throat as Onna lunged at her opponent again, the battle rush blissfully in her veins. They clashed, axe against club, force by force trying to push each other down. Their teacher shouted, they broke apart, swinging back around to try again.
