IMG_20200318_075831_669

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

This week, we’re looking at a little Orcish lore: how they used to treat the forest, what they believe about themselves and magic – and how they came to worship the sun instead.

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

This week we’re looking at the place legends and “fairy” tales hold in Tock’s world, especially in Gnomish culture – with a specific humanly-popular Fairy Tale as an example!

Time for another patrons-only world building post, dear readers! (And happy holidays to anyone celebrating!)
This week, inspired by the dElfcember prompt of “gratitude,” we’re looking a bit at Queen Reina’s life and ascension to Queenhood. – and a bit about another character believed to be connected to her, as well.

Orctober 2019 the 19th

The March of the Background Orcs does indeed continue!

This is Gruska – the guard that is currently in charge of watching Onna as she escorts Tock and Bumble to the clan’s camp. Randomly smiling, and taking her hair down.

I imagine someone’s teasing her about something at the end of the day, at home. That second speech bubble translates to “You think?”

More on the Orc language in “Tock the Gnome” is always available on Patreon, by the way!

Bonus art – Dance Lessons II

A redraw of a previous illustration (with a bit more emotion since my own shipping has increased. Oh dear ;D ).

As noted before – 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 second of those, featuring Tock and Onna, in their affectionate future.

….*slowly turns up the volume on “Toki ni Ai wa” and walks away*

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.


Promo – World Building Wednesday 57

Time for another patrons-only world building post, dear readers! This week with extra art 😀
Today we have a little bit of character backstory instead of strict world building – though clearly Tock and Onna are drawn to each other, they have indeed loved before.  So here’s a little bit about their individual, pre-Quest romantic history.
