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!

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.

Bonus art, Blue like Bruises

More for “Seven Years of Tock!”

A little context: this is part of a two part set, working backwards from the way things are now.

Now, the characters live in a world where all the peoples are very separated. Gnomes live in technological isolation, Dwarves live buried within the plateau, Orcs keep to themselves (except to battle with the Badgerfolk, and sometimes each other). Everyone else, pretty much forgotten about.

But it was not always so, and while that lost history contains a lot of Love, it sometimes contains distinct tragedies.

Tock will learn more about these in time, but for now, here’s a little taste.

(ALSO, this one contains the oldest of the old character work that I pulled into Tock’s world for backstory, as mentioned here. You can see more of my previous work on them in their folder at my deviantArt site. So that makes this a Throwback Thursday special too, right?)

Thanks for reading, everyone! More bonuses coming up this weekend and into next week, with a special surprise on the actual anniversary day – August 30th – as promised!
