Orctober the last! Day 31, and a bonus!

I did the thing!!!

Day 31, “Magic”

Chosen specifically for the magicy magical day of Halloween!

These Orcs, by the way, do not have magic in Tock’s time – so I imagine the feeling of it would be quite a jarring.

Bonus – “The Orcs Unite Us”

Collaboration with the amazing basileonardo, who was kind enough to ask me to draw with him (go check out his page, his Orcs are amazing!) 💕

And that makes a COMPLETE challenge!! Congrats to everyone who participated.
Thank you to everyone who stuck with me this month, and welcome to any new followers from it!

I hope you all stay with me and look forward to what comes next 🤗

(…….Gnomevember, that is!)

Day 29, “Skull”

(Almost drew her making a kissy-face at it, but I think this came out even better.)

Day 30, “Rest”

Featuring Onna and Tock once again (though I’m sure they’ll get plenty of attention during Gnomevember 💕). Felt like this was a good lead up to the coming Gnome-focused challenge – and those of you following the comic will hopefully appreciate this moment of schmoop ….since they’re taking their time to get there ^^;

One day more!!!

Orctober 25, 26+27 and 28

Catching up again 😀 We’re almost there!

Day 25, “Love”

This idea came to me, a manifestation of how we must channel Love through ourselves in order to give it to others….. I’m happier with it the more I look at it, but it still doesn’t exactly match what was in my mind. Hope the meaning still comes across okay.

Day 26+27, “History” and “Fire”

I ended up combining these two with the idea that for these Orcs, the central campfire of their tribe’s camp represents their connection to their sun deity and all their ancestors that walked the path of life before them.

Day 28, “Breath”

Featuring an Orc noblewoman and a Gnome noblewoman, to account for the hat (“Tock the Gnome” Gnomes only wear pointed hats for status reasons and fancy occasions, more on that at Patreon here).

And as for the image itself – we all breathe the same air, don’t we?

World Building Wednesday 17 & Orctober twenty four, “Wise”

(more…)


Orctober 16 – Oath

Commitment to Faerie. Commitment to life. Committment to oneself ❤

Needed something more positive and peaceful for this one, even if there must be a bit of violent seriousness.

(Posting from my phone, so no handy links, buuuut instead enjoy this preview of my freshly carved Samhain pumpkin!)

(…..Orctober is the best 😀 )


Orctober catchup – 14/Sunday Gnomedays, and 15

IMG_20181014_205126_594.jpg

Day 14, “Leader” (also Sunday Gnomedays 10-14-18)

Since this one fell on a Sunday, we get both Orcish and Gnomish goodness! Which inspired me to illustrate two of those current leaders – Queen Adamine of the Gnomes, and Chieftain Keesa of Onna’s as-yet-unnamed tribe (who’s also been featured in the recent pages of the comic!).

Behind Keesa are echoes of other Chieftains, because she’s not the only one – each tribe has it’s own Chieftain, and they are all equal in Orcish society. The Gnomes, as I’ve mentioned before, have a single monarch – currently Queen Adamine, who’s from a long line of other ruling royals. That relic she’s holding is important to her bloodline, buuuuuuut more on that in the future ❤

More on both of them in general, of course, available in the bonus material at Patreon.

Day 15, “Capture”

…..which stumped me at first, but then this hit me very clearly and DEMANDED to be drawn. As far as I can tell, there’s more to this abduction that it seems, and I think that “princess” is going to be just fine.

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!
