The 22nd

Which also would have been World Building Wednesday, but that had to be on pause for last week due to show prep. Anyhow, here’s something about what happens (or used to happen) during eclipses….

From the aforementioned show prep event!

The 25th

Queer loves inspired by a recent rewatch of Thor: Ragnarok (yes yes).

The 26th

Inspired by a recent viewing of “The Hobbit.” ….I love me some Tolkien, I do, but whenever I watch anything LotR-related I end up drawing some of my own Orcs very, very confused.

Language note! ‘Eka’ means ‘no.’ Full Orcish Language Guide available here.

The 27th/Sunday Gnomedays 10-27-19

I imagine these two end up on wondrous adventures, protecting whatever preciousness that star stands for.

The 28th

Sometimes, you’ve gotta be fierce and stern.

More to come – we’re almost there, everybody!

(Aaaaaand in case you don’t follow my other sites- next month’s drawing challenge prompt list is up here!)

Welcome to another patrons-only world building post, dear readers – and once again,

h a p p y  O r c t o b e r !!! ❤

As the above sprig of lavender may imply, we’re looking a little bit more at an aspect of Orcish life that I’ve mentioned before – hunting and gathering.

So much hurt, on both sides :/

(Shameless bonus promotion – those of you who are Patrons should be able to figure out most of what’s being said here with the Orcish Language Guide! There are some new words in here, which will be updated in part 2 of the Guide when there’s enough of them. But if you’re curious, most of this page and all the pages before it is/are decipherable through the first part!)

Thanks for your patience with this page 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! Especially if the waiting is a bother ^^;

In the meantime, I hope you’ve been enjoying Gnomevember and look forward to the holiday bonus drawing! (Patrons will be getting a little something extra special this year, btw ❤ )

And don’t forget about my Shop Small Sale going on, now through Cyber Monday! Patrons-only bonus discount available here.

NOTE: There are some errors in the text of panel 5, from scanning, that I didn’t catch before. I will have those fixed up later today.

UPDATE: Panel 5 is fixed!

Almost to a resolution ~ but, then!

Thank you for your patience in waiting for this page, I know it’s been a couple months ^^; That said – we’re very close to my first goal on Patreon, $50 monthly, for which 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!

And as far as this page goes, I am very pleased with it myself, especially that first panel. Lots of little storytelling details in where everyone is looking 😉

And and, as I mentioned last page, The Orcish Language Guide is finally available! Click here to check it out. (Some of the words on today’s page are new, but they will be added as soon as possible.)

Lastly – Happy Orctober, too!!! I will be participating in that, even though I’m having a bit of a late start. More about that on my Instagram.
