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.

Page 58 delay (and WIP)

Soooo Page 58 is actually done, but due to connection issues with my computer, I’ll be posting it later than I hoped (normally I post pages as soon as I finish them, but alas, not this time).

It’ll be up as soon as I can get connection or a USB key to take it to a different computer…..but in the meantime, here’s a sneak peek of one of the Patreon drawings I’m working on.

Patreon Thank You WIP

Please check out “Tock the Gnome” on Patreon in the meantime, and hopefully soon I’ll be back to posting normally. Thanks for reading :)

Sketch – Meeting Xenos

Sketch, "Meeting Xenos," Tock the Gnome

This is not canon. No. No no no.

But I’ve been recently inspired by the work of MistyTang, and her character Xenos was so brilliantly terrible that my brain couldn’t NOT wonder what would happen if he visited Tock’s world.

(I meant for it to look like Onna’s holding Tock protectively, but I think it looks more like Xenos noticed that she was the only one open to him, and floated her up to him or something, so Onna’s now trying to hold her back. And Bumble shouldn’t be that tall, but that’s the only way he was getting in. Yay sketch flexibility.)

Read more about Xenos here :D

WIP page 58

Spoilers follow!!! (provided you can read my handwriting)

Apparently getting up earlier than planned this New Year’s Day meant unexpected Tock Time.

WIP page 58, "Tock the Gnome"

The next few pages are going to be full of some Big Picture foreshadowing. Tock doesn’t know it yet, but she’s setting off something bigger than the Princess’s situation. Ohohohohoho.

Happy New Year, everyone. Thanks for reading :)

This Tree’s Taken

"This Tree's Taken," Tock the Gnome Happy Holidays 2014

One last post for 2014. Happy Holidays everyone, no matter what you celebrate :)

See you with new pages and sketchwork in 2015!

Sketch – Tock in gown

Pencil sketch, Tock in a dream gown, "Tock the Gnome"

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 :)

Sketch – Root Veggie Gnome

Looks like some pre-Steampunk Gnomish fashion.
