First ~ Previous ~ Next (coming soon!)

The angst continues…..

Also continuing to use Orcish un-translated, since it’ll be important HOW they handle Tock and Bumble’s lack of understanding. Hopefully that doesn’t feel like it’s taking too long, dear readers – let me know if it’s dragging, and I will let you know when the Orcish Language Guide is available, too!

As I mentioned last time, some of these angry new faces will be familiar to you if you’ve read the “Meanwhile…” bonus scene (available to all patrons, along with many other goodies).

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!

WIP – “Tock Daydreaming”

wip_tockdaydreams_rachelillustrates

“WIP Wednesday,” that is, with some bonus art progress!

I don’t get to show off Tock’s plumpness very much in the comic, due to the fun of corsets (really the only other times we’ve gotten to see it are in “Resurgam” and these two patron bonus pieces, “Tock’s Carwen Altar” and “Moonlight Stroll at the Camp”).

But in interest of getting to do that – since the need for me to push the body-positivity of the series has been brought VERY much to my attention lately –  I’m redoing an old sketch of her daydreaming.

More WIP of this will be available for all patrons on Patreon as I go, btw. And don’t forget about the exclusive print special – only available for 12 more days!

Sketch – Tock and Light

Sometimes progress is finishing a comic page or a grand, complicated commission.

Sometimes progress is a tiny ink drawing of your main character looking more hopeful than you expected.

(Slowly getting back to work after a rough week. More WIP available at Patreon, as always, link is below ❤ )

Visual notes – Orc Teeth

20180321_201422[1]
Some unexpected visual notes – I could do better with Orc tusks. So here we are.
Consider me humbled and impressed at all the gorgeous and impressive Orcish cosplay out there (which my Wife and I relied on *heavily* to correct this situation. Thanks also, always, to her for pointing out that this adjustment was needed. She always makes me better than I think I am or can be).
…..now on to fixing page 84 ^^;
At least this was a chance to feature Onna’s warrior hair!
And as Maya Angelou said, “Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better.”

Sketch/WIP – Resurgam

sketch_resurgam_wm

So in addition to today’s Patreon Ranger bonus post being appropriate for International Women’s Day, here’s this too.

This feels like a follow up to my older piece, “Purity,” even though they are technically about different things. And regardless of what inspired them, I hope this inspires all of us – but especially those of the lady persuasion – to live free in our own delightfulness. We are beauty, and grace, and stardust, everyone.

Happy International Women’s Day, all ❤
