Bonus sketch – Illegal (and progress update!)

IMG_20190714_212302_666

Something bonusey for extra Sunday Gnomedays (drawn last night, but busy weekend means late posting!). My Wife and I are rewatching Veronica Mars in preparation for the new series, and as usual, Veronica and Wallace are giving me major Tock and Bumble feels.

(Don’t worry Bumble, I don’t think Tock would actually do that well in jail either 😅🎩💕)

As for current progress!

The Orcish tent redesign is going very well, slowly but surely. This week’s World Building Wednesday will feature the Chief’s-tent redesign and how/why that differs from their usual homes. The week after that, if all goes to plan, will feature the Great Hall’s redesign, and then I’m on to making page adjustments! Thank you for your patience, dear readers. I promise we will be back to forward story progress as soon as possible.

In the meantime, my daily “Tock Time” has gone to making progress on this month’s Ranger level bonus drawing (which will be a finished ink and subtle color piece this month instead of just a pencil illustration). WIPs on that are available for all Rogue level patrons, too, in lieu of the page progress WIPs I would usually be posting more regularly. Click here to check those out, too!

Thank you all, very much, for your patience again and for your enjoyment of Tock’s story always!

Promo – World Building Wednesday 49

IMG_20190625_171545_294
Time for another (usually) patrons-only world building post, dear readers!
For those of you visiting Patreon for the open house – each week there is a new exclusive world building post available for all patrons. I post the associated art for free as a promo, but the actual notes/story/etc. and any bonus visual notes are readable for patrons-only, at any dollar amount.
This week we’re looking at another very lost tale of the Wood Queen and the Stone Queen, characters of lore famous in the holiday stories of Peacenight-time. But though that legend ends well, it was not the final account of them:

First ~ Previous ~ Next (coming soon!)

Holding hands 😀 And finally, some movement!

Catchup posting for the last two Sunday Gnomedays, booth photos from the last two events I did, and this and last month’s Ranger level bonus drawings will be up soon, buuuuuuuuuut I wanted to get this up first ❤

Thanks for your patience with updates, too -if the slow updates bother you, keep in mind that we’re getting closer to my first goal here on Patreon, $50 monthly, which means I would guarantee a new page each month!! So if you’re not pledging yet but enjoy reading Tock’s story, please do consider signing up!

Time for another (usually) patrons-only world building post, dear readers!

This week we’re looking at the relationship, at least in some mythologies, between two of the Gnomish pantheon’s most prominent Goddesses….

Mermay catchup! Those final 3 days.

This weekend is going to be veryvery busy as I vend at a festival out of town, so here’s these quick before I go!

Day 29, “Aztec”

Something very very non-Tock – inspired by Lake Texcoco and the cities they built around it, a giant Mermaid lake-spirit blesses and guards the people who lived there.

Day 30, “Stars”

Something more canon – a Mermaid who’s clearly been through something rough gets blessed with starfish hugs!

Day 31, “Free Draw”

Something Tock-possible – and a flashback, revisiting these two from last year’s last day! Loosely based on my Wife and me (and I can’t believe it took me 31 days to draw a sea turtle Merm, what the eff, self?).

Thanks again to the amazing Maegan Cook  for an awesome Mer-month!! Hope you all enjoyed my entries 🌊

“Tock the Gnome” Junefae 2019 Open House!!

junefae2019patreonopenhouse

In honor of this very Faerie of months, we’re having an open house!

From today until June 30th, ALL Patreon updates – meaning bonus posts at all levels – will be posted publicly, so non-patrons will get to see what benefits come with supporting this comic 😀 At the end of the month, existing patrons and any new patrons will get an extra treat by regular mail, too!

The first post each month, by the way, is an exclusive drawing of Mariatu – frequently featured in in backstory bonus posts.  Most of the time that is a pencil drawing, not finished like this (but I wanted to do something special today).

Click here to visit the Patreon page and see more!!

And happy Junefae, everyone!

(On that note, of course, Mermay is over – catchup posting will commence soon <3)
