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.

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!

Up a day late because I completely lost track of what day of the week it was yesterday – thanks for your patience, dear readers!
This week, we’re looking a bit closer at the Elves – specifically those of them that have those little wings on their hips, how they got them, and what they believe that means.
Also! Preparations are underway for print issue 3 ❤ More information on that here, and more WIP on page 95 here!

Promo – World Building Wednesday 72, AND an announcement!

worldbuildingwednesday72_1_tockthegnome

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

This week, we’re looking at the flip side of an already established fact. Fae that are closer to the Heart of Faerie are non-detectable by non-magical beings – if that is so, what do they look like when non-magical beings do see them?

Click here for the full post, with more bonus art!

ALSO!! Fun announcement time – due to popular demand, “Tock the Gnome” is now available on Webtoon!

Since the format for Webtoon is notably different from how I usually structure pages, I’ll be gradually uploading the existing comic content there, with a small update every Tuesday until I’m caught up to the current pages.

Time for another patrons-only world building post!! A bit late for World Building Wednesday, but still.

Time for another patrons-only world building post, dear readers!
This week we’re looking a little closer at what’s going on with the rest of the fae of the world – those that are closer to the Heart, and thus not impacted by the loss of magic – and why they haven’t gotten involved.

Orctober catchup, the 22nd to 28th

Here we go!! (Not including today’s which will be drawn later.)

IMG_20191026_102021_642

The 22nd

Which also would have been World Building Wednesday, but that had to be on pause for last week due to show prep. Anyhow, here’s something about what happens (or used to happen) during eclipses….

IMG_20191026_174803_593

The 23rd

From the aforementioned show prep event!

The 24th

Warrior and Tea Faerie ❤

IMG_20191026_200134_877

The 25th

Queer loves inspired by a recent rewatch of Thor: Ragnarok (yes yes).

IMG_20191026_200041_621

The 26th

Inspired by a recent viewing of “The Hobbit.” ….I love me some Tolkien, I do, but whenever I watch anything LotR-related I end up drawing some of my own Orcs very, very confused.

Language note! ‘Eka’ means ‘no.’ Full Orcish Language Guide available here.

The 27th/Sunday Gnomedays 10-27-19

I imagine these two end up on wondrous adventures, protecting whatever preciousness that star stands for.

The 28th

Sometimes, you’ve gotta be fierce and stern.

More to come – we’re almost there, everybody!

(Aaaaaand in case you don’t follow my other sites- next month’s drawing challenge prompt list is up here!)

Bonus art – Dance Lessons II

dancelessons2_wm

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!

Patreon ~ Etsy ~ Ko-fi

*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.


Bonus art – Channeling

Something extra, and extra healing 💚

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

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

Promo – World Building Wednesday 38

20190403_182309
This week, inspired by Mariatus circumstances, we’re looking at the Elven religious structure, specifically their temples and one thing that can happen there.

Promo – World Building Wednesday 34

Prompted by my participation in Fairy Fae Week over on Instagram (….whaaaat? This one’s only 7 days, not 30 😅). Today’s prompt was Light or Dark, and I went with both. Previous/following prompts will be posted here sometime later this week.

IMG_20190306_163148_206

As I’ve mentioned before, the Elves of Tock’s world see morality very differently than other races. They are very aware of the balance necessary between Light and Dark, comfort and sorrow, peace and pain….

Orctober the last! Day 31, and a bonus!

I did the thing!!!

IMG_20181031_132851_330

Day 31, “Magic”

Chosen specifically for the magicy magical day of Halloween!

These Orcs, by the way, do not have magic in Tock’s time – so I imagine the feeling of it would be quite a jarring.

IMG_20181031_160147_995

Bonus – “The Orcs Unite Us”

Collaboration with the amazing basileonardo, who was kind enough to ask me to draw with him (go check out his page, his Orcs are amazing!) 💕

And that makes a COMPLETE challenge!! Congrats to everyone who participated.
Thank you to everyone who stuck with me this month, and welcome to any new followers from it!

I hope you all stay with me and look forward to what comes next 🤗

(…….Gnomevember, that is!)
