Which got me thinking about Onna, and what she thinks she “should” have been 🤫

(Today’s/Sunday Gnomedays coming later, with prompt “Leader”….)

Sketch – Arella manifests

Some self-care sketching from yesterday, during a much needed low-key late morning/afternoon. Featuring Arella from the backstory of Tock’s world – another bonus (more angsty) drawing of her is available now on Patreon, and more on her in general available here 🌹

Happy MerMay! (and patreon peek)

mermay2018_misuandmariatu

Happy beginning of MerMay everyone!

(This is also a “Tock the Gnome” patreon bonus – that Elven lady in the middle of an intense Mermaid hug is Mariatu. Surrounding her is her Wife, Misu. They are an important part of the backstory of Tock’s world and there are many bonus pieces relating to them and mermaid/elf culture there. See more here.)

This is also especially dedicated to my own Mer-Llady Wife 🐚💗🦈

Good luck to all of us participating!

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!


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 ❤ )

Goodbye Notes

~** Happy Seven Years of Tock again! **~

My intention today was to post an old sketch of Tock’s mother confronting a friend of Tock’s about where she’s gone – BUT, I forgot that I had un-canon’d that, to make Tock’s leaving of them more responsible.

As such, here’s two newly-canon Goodbye Notes – the one Tock left for her parents, and the one Bumble left for his family.

Hope you enjoy them, and stay tuned for even more goodies next week! ❤

(more…)

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.

Thanks for reading, everyone!
