Ooooooooooooh transitiony transition page!!

(Speaking of Carwen, directly ❤😁❤ And might that largest star look familiar? Hmm…)

Once again, more on Gnomish religion available here.

Thanks for your patience with updates, dear readers -if the slow progress bothers you, keep in mind that we’re getting REALLY close to my first goal on Patreon, $50 monthly, which means I would guarantee a new page each month!! I am trying to keep up a good momentum during social distancing, but if the usually slow progress bothers you, please consider pledging – even as a little as a dollar gets us closer to that and the next goal, which would mean guaranteed updates bi-monthly!

Oooooh spirity spirit things ❤

Tock’s connection to her gods is very important and will absolutely be impacting how she reacts to the quest unfolding around her. So, here’s a little taste of that (though she has mentioned Carwen before).

Carwen, by the way, is the Gnomish goddess of love and creativity! You can read more about her and the rest of the major Gnomish pantheon here.   And more about the specific prayer hand gesture Tock is using here.

Time for another patrons-only world building post, dear readers!

This week, we have a short tale about the Gnomish afterlife – or that space between life and death.

Note: This is canon, but it certainly isn’t something Tock or Bumble or any other living Gnome is aware of. So, keep that in mind, and more on that as things progress….

Time for another patrons-only world building post, dear readers!

Bonus art – Channeling

Something extra, and extra healing 💚

While I’m working on correcting the Orcish tent issue on previous pages (which takes a lot of tracing/redrawing work I can’t just sit down and do without setting up a specific work station), I’ve been using my daily Tock Time* to finish up some bonus illustrations – which will be available as prints, in interest of my upcoming presence at Gears to Corsets, September 27th to 29th!

So here’s the first of those, featuring Tock, channeling some faerie energy through her primary goddess, Carwen.

Available as a 5×7 inch print!! Click here!

*For those of you who don’t know, because of my busy schedule, daily “Tock Time” means at least 15 minutes a day working on the newest page of the comic. Since I work traditionally, this usually means just sitting down with pencils pen and paper and physically creating each page. However, things have been different lately, due to the reasons listed above.

I apologize for this one being late, I was travelling to visit family and got some sad news about a dear friend, and didn’t have the energy to get it posted on time. Thank you for your patience – here it is now, short and (bitter)sweet, and and establishes something you might have already guessed…

Sketch – Tock Believes

More “Seven Years of Tock” you say? No problem 😀

As this hopefully illustrates, her spirituality is becoming more and more important as things progress. Which pleases me muchly. And I hope you will all find quite beautiful.

Sketch – Carwen, love Herself

Tough night getting motivated to work on things, so random sketching turned into the Gnomish Goddess of Love, Carwen. 
I’ve written about her before, but more on the Gnomish Gods will be coming again soon.
