“Princess?” – series promo illustration

So here’s something I’ve been working on for a good while now – originally inspired by all the floofy princessy illustrations for a certain series I adore, but now, finished up as a promo illustration for this series.

Obviously speaking to Tock’s story as it is right now.

First official shot of the whole Bucket crew, and a vision of the Princess, of course :) Sorry for slight spoilers about as-yet-unrevealed characters. They’re all going to be very interesting together, so I hope you stick around.

Sketch, Goddess Anosmia, as the Lady at the Gate

Pencil sketch - Anosmia, the Lady at the Gate

One of the religions that features most prominently in Tock’s life is the worship of Anosmia, the Gnomish Goddess of Destruction (Bumble’s family works with Her at least occasionally, as indicated here).

Anosmia has a lot of features and roles, and in this sketch, appears as a Guardian of the afterlife – guiding Gnomish souls from the physical world to the beyond. Which would indicate that in general, Gnomes belief in a world beyond after death that signifies eternal rest and may include reincarnation and/or punishment, depending on the value of their soul and what gods they served in life, etc.

More on part of the Gnomish pantheon here.

“Mother’s Heart” and “Father’s Eyes”

Two pieces for this Mother’s Day and Father’s Day for my own parents, featuring Tock (and tiny Tock!) with her own parents.

I don’t get to show very much of them in the comic, but they are very important to her, so I wanted to honor that somehow for my own folks.

For more information on their story, see here and here’s another adorable sketch of them, too.

So my art time lately has been taken up by other things, and as such, page 63 is coming along quite slowly.

In the meantime, here’s a preview of the layout for the page. Wonder what they’re saying, hmmmmm…

The next page is taking me longer than I’d like, so here’s a little sneak peek. Tock being lovely and oblivious as usual.

WIP – Some Brogh

WIP, some Brogh, pencil and ink

Today’s an important day for me, personally, and I won’t go into details BUT here’s some of the (upcoming) Badger People to mark the holiday.

Happy St. Paddy’s Day, everyone. Be careful if you’re out and about. And remember how rich Irish culture is.
