Bonus sketch – Random Tribesladies

20170615_120241-1
Random Orcish art therapy *thumbs up*
These are two of Onna’s tribesfolk, from pgs. 74 and 75 recently. I am oddly fascinated with that white-haired maiden and I hope I get to tell her story too, whatever it is.
And if you missed it, I did create a guide to who’s who between those two pages, only available here.

Bonus art – “Only Natural”

Only_Natural,_'Tock_the_Gnome'_by_rachelillustrates

“I want to live like animals
Careless and free like animals
I want to live
I want to run through the jungle
The wind in my hair and the sand at my feet”

– Savage Garden, “The Animal Song”

Happy Pride Month everybody! This was done for a project/kinda-contest over at deviantART, where I have done much much much of my networking and fanbase-building over the years. I am very grateful for all the acceptance I’ve found and the friendships I’ve built there, and though nothing’s ever perfect, that site has been a haven for me during many frustrating “real life” art conflicts. So, despite the usual life/comic/commission busy-ness, I had to join in the celebration!

(Also, selected submissions will be featured in a new Pride Flag widget on the website, so cross your fingers for me!)

The submissions had to be centered around one of the Pride flag’s colors and the meaning of that color. Of course, I had to pick green (for nature), and it had to be Tock and Onna ❤

(By the way, I hope none of you think this is a big big spoiler – I have intended this attraction to be obvious from the start. I promise there will be lots of fun story goodness in watching this play out against Tock’s quest. Ohohoho.)

This was inspired by the same-sex relationships found in nature. I wanted to do something a bit different though, so I chose lesbian does, gay male goldfinches, and non-binary pangolins (because….pangolins). And Tock and Onna together as a queer representation of Faerie.

Thank you all for continuing to stick with the comic – Tock and Onna and Bumble and all of their magical, messed-up world. If you’re celebrating this month, I send you SUCH love and I hope you have a fantastic time being truly you!
And again, thanks dA, for being a place for me to express my big gay self for so many years, now.

Told you it would be much more detailed 🙂

The scan of this page is a little bit bigger than most, for better views of Onna’s tribe.

Well, what you can see of them so far.

Also, a quick note on my Orcs – though they live in yurts (because….yurts), they are heavily Viking-influenced. That’s a mashup that just makes a lot of sense to me. I’m very excited to show more of that.

Sunday Gnomedays

Quick shoutout and cross-post from my main site – every Sunday, I post a new Gnome drawing, and this week it happens to be Tock-related!

20170318_192437-1[1]

Anosmia and Carwen, two goddesses from the Gnomish pantheon. They’ve been mentioned a couple times in the comic, but you can read even more about them over on Patreon. Many other bonus features are also available there!

And most importantly, happy Sunday! May we all have a very faerie day ❤

(And again, if you check out rachelillustrates.com every Sunday, there’s a new Gnome drawing available! Any Tock-related ones will be posted here as well, but still. I missed Gnomevember.)

A little bonus work, also available on Patreon with bonus information and Dwarf/Gnome culture notes!

Glimpse – At Boundary Market

atboundarymarket_vday2017_small

Part of the gift I drew for my wife for this lovely Valentine’s Day<3

A Tockverse Gnome and Tockverse Dwarf sharing a sweet kiss. The rest of the piece is about the gems and minerals market where Gnomes and Dwarves have the vast majority of their interaction, and why that is. But that’s a tale for another time.

Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone! May we all be grateful for the Love in our lives, whatever forms it takes.

A simple page to go with the last one, and in contrast to what’s coming next…
On that note, the next page is going to be MUCH more detailed (to the point that I’m considering making it a 2 page spread) so it may be awhile before the next update. As always, I’ll still be posting sketches and worldbuildy-things – sometimes on here, but especially on Patreon – so I hope you look forward to that and I appreciate your patience, dear readers ❤
