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

Continuing our theme from last week, here’s a better portrait of the Gnomish royal family, as they are now. We will be looking a bit at what happened to Adamine after last week’s trauma, how this family formed, and where they are now.

Looks like Tock has figured something out – can you guess what it is? 🙂

(Shameless bonus promotion – those of you who are Patrons should be able to figure out some of what’s being said here with the Orcish Language Guide! There are quite a few new words in here, which will be updated in part 2 of the Guide soon.)

Thanks for your patience with updates, too – if the slow updates bother you, keep in mind that we’re getting closer to my first goal on Patreon, $50 monthly, which means I would guarantee a new page each month!! So if you’re not pledging me on Patreon yet, but enjoy reading Tock’s story, please do consider signing up!

Orctober, days 11 and 12

A bit more catchup, and a bit on time!

IMG_20181012_200501_548.jpg

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!

Orctober catchup – days 5, 6 and 7

As it says 🙂 Still pushing through with these for the Orcs of Tock’s world, but life-things prevented me from posting in a timely manner this weekend.

So here we go, with catchup:

IMG_20181006_175037_959.jpg

Five, “Rush”

As I’ve talked about before on Patreon, these Orcs are nomadic hunter-gatherers. So I imagine this lady got her timing messed up and kept foraging beyond the time that her people were supposed to regroup and start packing up camp, and now she had to hurry back to them (….by the look on her face, I feel like this happens to her a lot).

IMG_20181006_181731_039.jpg

Six, “Song”

Pretty self-explanatory – though I did have something very different in mind for this one (Onna singing to Tock and Bumble, actually. She has a lovely singing voice, which hasn’t come up in the comic yet…… and I’m impatient….. ).

But the busy-ness of this weekend manifested this, instead, and I’m actually very pleased with how she came out.

Maybe most Orcs don’t sing, and as such, this lady is surprised to hear music in the forest…

IMG_20181007_140111_028.jpg

Seven, “Fight” (and Sunday Gnomedays 10-7-18)

As I’ve also mentioned before, the Orcs and the Gnomes have a pretty good trade relationship that has existed for a while. Most of the time, such visits go smoothly… but sometimes, not as much!

By the way – in order to keep things interesting (and manageable) as I fulfill each prompt, all Sunday drawings will be combined with Sunday Gnomedays, and all Wednesday drawings will be combined with World Building Wednesdays.

Full prompt list here.

Day 8 will be up later today ❤
