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

Because I am getting ready to travel for the weekend, we have something short and sweet about Eunan, his husband and the Brogh in general – regarding gender and child-raising.

Time for another patrons-only world building post, dear readers!
As promised, this week is the last of the Orcish tent redesign – the Grand Hall. As originally intended, each Orc campsite has a central structure in the middle that serves as a meeting place for the whole community, and that will still be the case – with some significant changes, however!

Time for another patrons-only world building post, dear readers!
As promised in last weeks post, where we looked at general Orcish tent design, this week we’re looking at the Chief’s tent – how its different, and why (with Onna’s family’s tent as an example).

Bonus sketch – Illegal (and progress update!)

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!

Page 94 production paused due to unintentional cultural appropriation

IMG_20190706_183532_040

Page production is on hold until further notice, and I have an apology to make.

When I first designed the Orcs of Tock’s world, I chose to have them live in yurts because I simply and ignorantly thought yurts are lovely and wanted to draw them. I did not consider their history and cultural context at all, and in doing so have paid a striking disrespect to the cultures they come from.

It doesn’t matter that Tock’s story takes place in a Faerie setting away from that context – human inspiration still needs to be taken responsibly, and I wasn’t thinking or acting responsibly at the time. I did not intend to appropriate anything, but I have, and I am truly sorry, especially to anyone who may have been offended by what has been depicted in the comic.

I intend to correct every page that features the yurts, which will take some design adjustment and redrawing. More information on my timeline for that asap. In the meantime, bonus art and weekly bonus worldbuilding will be up as scheduled on Patreon.

Thanks very much to all of my readers for your patience while I correct this issue 💗
