Tock PSA – Mistakes

37126983_617738171946918_77602053219680256_o

Some random inspiration from our hero herself.

I, for one, am very hard on myself when I’m less than perfect. But none of us are, and that’s okay. What’s important is to learn from our mistakes, apologize when necessary, and keep on loving ourselves (and each other) anyway.

So I hope this helps you too, if you’ve been having a hard time with these things.

(Page 87 is on its way, by the way! WIPs are available at Patreon. Link below.)

Patreon tier changes and Ranger level giveaway!

Hello readers! Exciting news:

I have indeed adjusted the tiers on Patreon a little bit, as I’d planned on before. The biggest changes are that there will be one new world building post a week now, available to all patrons, the Rogue level (for sneak peeks of the comic pages) now starts at $3 instead of $5 AAAAAND all Ranger patrons (or higher) are now entered to WIN that month’s bonus drawing!

Giveaways start with June and July. Here’s a preview of those two:

I will randomly select a winner for each of these next Friday, July 13th, so click here to pledge and see the full pieces and get yourself entered!

Hope you all enjoy. Thank you, always ~~<3

Tock is Pride

tockispride_2018_tockthegnome
Happy Pride month, everyone!
(And an extra happy JuneFae too – as the fae surely believe that Love is Love ❤ May Tock and Onna be a shining example of that.)

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!

Restructuring the Patreon site…

Hello dear readers.

So, the Spirit Renewal Print Special I have up on Patreon is not going exactly as I had hoped, which is leading me to rethink what I am offering there.

The rewards currently available for each patron level are listed here (on the right hand side of the page), and here is what I have in mind for adjustments:

Fighter

For basic support up to $3, you will get access to WIP’s on bonus art and sometimes the pages themselves, as well as one bonus world-building post per week as I write/draw to develop Tock’s world.

Rogue

For each pledge of $3 or more, you’ll get early access to comic pages in the form of WIP shots as each page takes form – including thumbnails, notes, full shots of the page in pencil and ink stages, and closeups of all other WIP on it (in addition to all previous rewards).

Ranger

For each pledge of $7 or more, you’ll get access to one exclusive Tock-related drawing per month (in addition to all previous rewards).

Paladin

For each pledge of $14 or more, you’ll get a monthly print of the Ranger level drawing sent to you via regular mail, with a personalized thank you note and bonus pencil sketch (in addition to all previous rewards).

Mage

For each pledge of $25 or more, I will provide a personal pencil drawing of a character of your choice – either one already in the comic, or a new one from one of the world’s races (in addition to all previous rewards, including the Paladin level print). You’ll get a high resolution scan of the image as well as the original sent to you via regular mail, with a personalized thank you note and bonus pencil sketch.

Bard

For each pledge of $50 or more, I will provide a finished illustration in the style of the comic (ink and simple colorwork) of a character of your choice – either one already in the comic, or a new one from one of the world’s races (in addition to all previous rewards, including the Paladin print and Mage pencil drawing). You’ll get a high resolution scan of the image as well as the original sent to you via regular mail, with a personalized thank you note and bonus pencil sketch.

Soooo let me know what you think of these changes, if you please!
