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 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.
Hello dear readers! Here’s a sneak peek of this month’s Ranger level bonus sketch for “Tock the Gnome” patrons!
(Happy Arella happens so infrequently, though, I had to share.)
I’ll be posting another bonus sketch there later for all patrons, since progress is very slow this month due to show prep, so I hope you consider checking it out!
For Seven Years of Tock too ❤
Anybody who has been following this site since I started the comic may remember her – this is Queen Adamine, the ruler of Tock and Bumble’s people. Despite the cultural problems her people face (which Tock will be speaking on in the comic, sometime soon) she is considered a generally benevolent ruler.
(Also, this is what I actually intended for Sunday Gnomedays this week, but didn’t get it done in time. The next two Sunday Gnomedays will indeed be Tock-related.)
