Drawing challenge catchup! Orctober the 31st to Gnomevember the 11th

As promised, though belated! Up-to-date posting and non-Tock-related entries will continue at my main site and my instagram.

Below are all the Tock-related ones so far! And of course, today’s batch includes this week’s World Building Wednesday and last week’s too! Full posts as always available on my Patreon.

Orctober 2020, the ninth through the twenty-ninth

Catchup posting! Including the World Building Wednesday for the rest of this month, viewable in full here, here, and here 💚

You may note there’s not a full 20 images here – I missed some days due to some intense personal life stuff in the past week. Part of this challenge for myself was to just draw a total of 31 Orcs, however that manifested – so considering the days where there have been two Orcs in one image, too, that should leave only 4 to catch up on after the challenge is over! And I will happily be doing that as part of Gnomevember, next month.

Also, I’m only posting the specifically Tock-world Orcs here – to see all the posts, including fanart of Orcs from other stories, check out my general art page.

Only two more to go – one of those being Tock-related, and a bonus page update coming that day, too!

Orctober 2020, the first through the eighth

As mentioned earlier! Full catchup. I will likely be posting these in bunches, but you can see them in a more timely fashion on my Instagram. And of course, though some of them will be fanart, most of them will indeed be Tock-related 💚

Also, the very striking one of Onna staring at a strange creature on her nose harkens to this week’s World Building Wednesday! See the full post (with a bonus drawing!) here.

World Building Wednesday pause (will resume 9/2)

IMG_20200825_172921_023

Hello dear readers.

Today my grandfather (who passed away this year, earlier in the pandemic) is being laid to rest. I am not able to be there due to the increased risk of exposure to the virus that I encounter at my day job, which is getting worse and worse by the day, but my heart is with my family as they honor him there.

In honor of him, too, WBW will be suspended for this week, resuming next Wednesday as usual.

This drawing is for him, too (featuring Tock and her Pops, of course, and based on a rather iconic behind-the-scenes photo from a ridiculous franchise I adore). He lifted me up in so many ways throughout his life – once physically, when I was in middle school and had just started gaining weight, making me feel lighter than air and “valuable” again despite all the messages I was getting from the rest of our culture. And often spiritually, through a condition we both shared that requires divine action for recovery. We didn’t often share the same interests, but what I remember about him most is how bright he shone, how he always tried to make us all laugh no matter what was going on. And he always welcomed me, even when I couldn’t make it to come visit him during his last years living in Florida.

Due to another illness, we began losing him even more – gradually – over the last few years, even though he was still physically with us. So this loss has been a long time coming, but no less painful. And no matter what, I hope I will try to honor him and carry what he’s shown me – the good he’s seen in me – to the end of my own days.

I love you Poppy. Rest in peace.

(And thanks for your patience, dear readers – if you want a canon explanation for this, let’s say that Tock’s grampa came to visit her at work one day, pre-quest, and they got into some shenanigans!)

“Pride Wings” – and an announcement!

pridewings_tockthegnome
Finished up last month’s Ranger bonus drawing for some self care (and to use for the new footer image for Webtoon episodes! ). There’s another one up today, we’re almost caught up to the current pages!
And that would make me nervous, exceeeeeeept:
🌼🎉With the generosity of my  patrons, I have hit my first goal on Patreon, which now guarantees monthly pages AND  upgrades the Ranger/Paladin bonus to an ink drawing instead of a pencil illustration!!! 🎉🌼
Imagine I am dancing with you, because I am. We’re making a beautiful Faerie ring together and I can’t wait, with your help, to grow Tock’s story and world more and more!
Extra shoutouts and patron-welcomes to Sarah, Aunt Nomie (who upped her pledge) and Bryndon, I hope you enjoy the extras and please comment/message me anytime if there’s anything you’d like to see more of. And to Kate, whose feedback is so constant and indispensable, my word. And to ALL of you – I treasure your support and faith in me. Truly.

WBW delay

Hello dear readers 🖤

It has been a really long week – on top of the stress of errands-running, I had some extra appointments (which I’m really grateful for, thank goodness for phone calls and Zoom meetings) BUT that’s been a lot more taxing on my energy than I expected. As such, World Building Wednesday is delayed. At best, it will be up later this week – at worst, it will resume next week.

To check out previous WBWs, click the ‘world building’ tag on my Patreon (link below)! Thanks for your patience 🎩💕
