Orctober 13 – Steed

IMG_20181013_210201_398.jpg

 

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

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

Orctober, days 11 and 12

A bit more catchup, and a bit on time!

IMG_20181012_200501_548.jpg

Eleven, “Look”

As I’ve mentioned before, the Orcs trade regularly with the Gnomes (who travel to their territory for that purpose, in airships – like Bumble’s family does). So this lady appears to be considering these binoculars they brought to her tribe on a recent trip.

(Specifically inspired by a pair of power binoculars from the 19th century, found on pimall.com)

Twelve, “Message”

I imagine these two are siblings, one carrying a message to the other from someone they fancy 😍 Also, I starkly realized in drawing this one that the viking deliciousness that inspired Tock-world Orc culture comes with lots of gender-stratification…..which I knew about, of course, but hadn’t applied too much to their clothing, yet. Look out for more world building on that soon!

Orctober catchup – days 8, 9 and 10

More catching up to do! For the record, I have been pretty much keeping up posting these on time on my Instagram, but it’s less easy to keep up on posting these across ALL the places I post (here, Patreon, dA, etc.). So for more-live updates, I recommend  following me there, too.

That said, here we are with the most recent three!

Eight, “Friend”

Which inspired me to draw more about the Hogdragons that the Orcs use for travel – and companionship, in some cases.

(Look closely and there’s some backstory in this one!)

Nine, “Tusk”

Which got me thinking about the connection between their tusks and the bones they use in their jewelry.

And then jewelry on their tusks.

So here we are.

(…who does and does not have nose rings is important too, btw. We will get to that eventually.)

Ten, “Move”

As I mentioned before, the Orcs are nomads, and they use the hogdragons for travel from foraging-place to foraging-place (also to carry them into war, but that’s another matter). Since they also live in yurts, they often send some of the tribe ahead to start setting up camp while the rest of them take their time to get there. And apparently some of the younger tribesfolk take the opportunity to race!

More soon ❤ (And of course, more on the Orcs of Tock’s world available in the comic!)

Orctober catchup – days 5, 6 and 7

As it says 🙂 Still pushing through with these for the Orcs of Tock’s world, but life-things prevented me from posting in a timely manner this weekend.

So here we go, with catchup:

IMG_20181006_175037_959.jpg

Five, “Rush”

As I’ve talked about before on Patreon, these Orcs are nomadic hunter-gatherers. So I imagine this lady got her timing messed up and kept foraging beyond the time that her people were supposed to regroup and start packing up camp, and now she had to hurry back to them (….by the look on her face, I feel like this happens to her a lot).

IMG_20181006_181731_039.jpg

Six, “Song”

Pretty self-explanatory – though I did have something very different in mind for this one (Onna singing to Tock and Bumble, actually. She has a lovely singing voice, which hasn’t come up in the comic yet…… and I’m impatient….. ).

But the busy-ness of this weekend manifested this, instead, and I’m actually very pleased with how she came out.

Maybe most Orcs don’t sing, and as such, this lady is surprised to hear music in the forest…

IMG_20181007_140111_028.jpg

Seven, “Fight” (and Sunday Gnomedays 10-7-18)

As I’ve also mentioned before, the Orcs and the Gnomes have a pretty good trade relationship that has existed for a while. Most of the time, such visits go smoothly… but sometimes, not as much!

By the way – in order to keep things interesting (and manageable) as I fulfill each prompt, all Sunday drawings will be combined with Sunday Gnomedays, and all Wednesday drawings will be combined with World Building Wednesdays.

Full prompt list here.

Day 8 will be up later today ❤

Orctober 4 – Laugh

IMG_20181004_123512_393.jpg

As it says 😀

(….really wanted to put “guffaw” in there instead of “ha,” but it wouldn’t have fit visually. Still, I imagine he is having a good guffaw.)

Gnomevember 2017 Day 1

gnomevember2017_day1
Whoops forgot to post this yesterday, BUT Gnomevember has begun!!!
 
(And starting with Tock and Onna, since last year we started with Tock and Bumble, AND the only Orctober post I got to do was also these two lovelies.
I’ll be posting any Tock-related ones here, of course, but all Gnomevember entries can be seen on my main site here.)
 
Today’s prompt – “Up and Away!”
