This week, inspired by Mariatus circumstances, we’re looking at the Elven religious structure, specifically their temples and one thing that can happen there.

World Building Wednesday 36 – Selkie

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

This week, inspired by the nature in which I celebrate St. Paddy’s Day, here’s a look at the Selkie folk of Tock’s world, and how their closest neighbors – the Elves – tend to view them.

Promo – World Building Wednesday 34

Prompted by my participation in Fairy Fae Week over on Instagram (….whaaaat? This one’s only 7 days, not 30 😅). Today’s prompt was Light or Dark, and I went with both. Previous/following prompts will be posted here sometime later this week.

As I’ve mentioned before, the Elves of Tock’s world see morality very differently than other races. They are very aware of the balance necessary between Light and Dark, comfort and sorrow, peace and pain….

World Building Wednesday 7 – Elven Queensguard

20180815_192921.jpg

Belatedly, that is, BUT that and Throwback Thursday all in one, as a result!

This week at Patreon we’re talking about the Elven Queensguard and government, as it was in the time of Misu and Mariatu 🌊💗🌊

This drawing features Reina, the Elven Queen from that time – who is one of the few characters from my pre-Tock work that has survived intact! (She’s on the left, btw.)

Here she is, in older incarnations:

(She looks pretty much the same, as you can see, except that now she gets to be happier! Yay! ……sorry Arella.)

(Also, shoutout to @photos_by_trinityhawk in the last older drawing, since it belongs to him 👍👍 and to my amazing Wife for fixing the ring in the picture and getting me into the show that inspired this drawing in the first place 😍 ).

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!

Bonus drawing – Gathering Stars

Happy Saturday dear readers 🌟
I‘ve been having trouble getting drawing this week, so here’s some sweetness in the meantime – with a certain Elf, and a certain Gnome.
(…..Mariatu and Tock, that is. You know that by now. I’m being silly.)
As for other progress – the pencil work for page 82 is about halfway done, yay! And I do plan to have the “Meanwhile…” Yurt scene up for Patrons only soon, with a bonus sketch of a certain Chieftain.
I hope 2018 has been treating you all well so far, and that you’re all staying as warm as possible!

Bonus art, Blue like Bruises

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.

(ALSO, this one contains the oldest of the old character work that I pulled into Tock’s world for backstory, as mentioned here. You can see more of my previous work on them in their folder at my deviantArt site. So that makes this a Throwback Thursday special too, right?)

Thanks for reading, everyone! More bonuses coming up this weekend and into next week, with a special surprise on the actual anniversary day – August 30th – as promised!
