Happy Free Comic Book Day!

From Tock and all the rest of the crew ❤

Thank you for reading her story and helping me be part of the comics world (the BEST form of storytelling imho), and thank you to all the writers, artists and comic book stores that made today awesome!

WIP – “Tock Daydreaming”

wip_tockdaydreams_rachelillustrates

“WIP Wednesday,” that is, with some bonus art progress!

I don’t get to show off Tock’s plumpness very much in the comic, due to the fun of corsets (really the only other times we’ve gotten to see it are in “Resurgam” and these two patron bonus pieces, “Tock’s Carwen Altar” and “Moonlight Stroll at the Camp”).

But in interest of getting to do that – since the need for me to push the body-positivity of the series has been brought VERY much to my attention lately –  I’m redoing an old sketch of her daydreaming.

More WIP of this will be available for all patrons on Patreon as I go, btw. And don’t forget about the exclusive print special – only available for 12 more days!

Sometimes progress is finishing a comic page or a grand, complicated commission.

Sometimes progress is a tiny ink drawing of your main character looking more hopeful than you expected.

(Slowly getting back to work after a rough week. More WIP available at Patreon, as always, link is below ❤ )

Sketch – Onna vs. Robin

sketch___onna_vs__robin___tock_the_gnome__by_rachelillustrates-dc5yk0k

Having a Throwback Thursday moment and wanting to share this with you guys ❤

This was originally a Patrons-only bonus over on Patreon, but with Spring approaching, I saw a robin for the first time (this season) a couple days ago and wanted to celebrate somehow! So in lieu of new artwork, I hope you enjoy this!

(Fun fact that will come up eventually: Onna is afraid of birdies. Even sweet little ones ^^; )

Many more bonus sketches and extra world-building information available on Patreon too, at any pledge level. Aaaaaaand stay tuned this Saturday for a special, related announcement!

Sketch/WIP – Resurgam

So in addition to today’s Patreon Ranger bonus post being appropriate for International Women’s Day, here’s this too.

This feels like a follow up to my older piece, “Purity,” even though they are technically about different things. And regardless of what inspired them, I hope this inspires all of us – but especially those of the lady persuasion – to live free in our own delightfulness. We are beauty, and grace, and stardust, everyone.

Happy International Women’s Day, all ❤

Well, someone’s had enough of this conversation she can’t understand.

Also – backgrounds, wooo! After so many pages of very little background, this was a challenge and I’m quite pleased with how it turned out. Between that and the rush of action in the first 4 panels (and those being so tightly packed together) I really wanted this page to snap us right back into the reality of what’s going on – i.e. the very real, potential danger for all three of our heroes. We’ve gotten to focus on just the mystery of Onna’s situation a bit for the last few pages, but there is a lot more going on than her reluctance and Tock’s curiosity.

Also also please, if you’re interested in me posting a translation guide for the Orcish, raise your hand!
