Time for another patrons-only world building post, dear readers! Aaaaand something a little bit different this week – building the backstory of the Gnome Queen, one small secret at a time. Here’s something she went through when she was younger….

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!!!

Prompt, Stars. Leading to another patrons-only World Building post, in which we’re talking about Orc weddings, marriage, and a bit about gender.

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, days 11 and 12

A bit more catchup, and a bit on time!

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!

World Building Wednesday 15 – Hogdragons!

worldbuildingwednesday15_hogdragons

In all the Orctober rush, I missed this week’s World Building Wednesday!  Since it focused on a bit more of their nomadic culture, though, the Orctober post that fell on that day DOES count!

So for this week, let’s take a closer at the Orcish mounts, the Hogdragons.

Full post available here

(And more Orctober List catching-up will come later. There was a bit of a snafu with yesterday’s prompt.)

First ~ Previous ~ Next (coming soon!)

Almost to a resolution ~ but, then!

Thank you for your patience in waiting for this page, I know it’s been a couple months ^^; That said – we’re very close to my first goal on Patreon, $50 monthly, for which I would guarantee a new page each month!! So if you’re not pledging yet but enjoy reading Tock’s story, please do consider signing up!

And as far as this page goes, I am very pleased with it myself, especially that first panel. Lots of little storytelling details in where everyone is looking 😉

And and, as I mentioned last page, The Orcish Language Guide is finally available! Click here to check it out. (Some of the words on today’s page are new, but they will be added as soon as possible.)

Lastly – Happy Orctober, too!!! I will be participating in that, even though I’m having a bit of a late start. More about that on my Instagram.
