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.

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!)

World Building Wednesday 13 – the Magicked Folk

20180926_121417.jpg

Time for another Patrons-only world building post! This week we’re looking at magic again – specifically, the cultures that have it, and why that is so.

Preview:

As has been implied, the Gnomes of Tock’s world do not have magic. Magical forces show up in some of their legends, and they hear stories of it existing in other cultures – especially in the Lowlands – but it has been a long, LONG time since any such force was present in their own kind. And as we’ve seen, the Orcs don’t appear to have magic, either.

So, if magic exists, where is it and why do its keepers still have it, if the Orcs and Gnomes don’t?

World Building Wednesday 12 – Brogh Battle Magic

20180919_122944.jpg

Time for another patrons-only world building post!

This week we’ll be looking a bit more at the Brogh – specifically how they use magic in battle, since they do have access to it.

Here’s a little preview:

“As I’ve implied before, the Brogh are more of a peaceful nature than not, but with the Orcs attacking them so often they do have to defend themselves. As such, they have developed several forms of defensive magic (a literal first line of defense, just trying to keep them out altogether) and enhancement magic, for themselves and their weapons, when the defensive measures fail….”

Full post available here (along with many many other patrons-only goodies!).

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.

Beauty and the Beast

~ A “Tock the Gnome” fairy tale, of the Brogh – the badger-folk. ~

Extra Happy and Grateful Seven Years of Tock, everyone!

I’m very excited to share this with you, and hope you enjoy it as much as I appreciate your readership.

Fairy tales are obviously a big part of the story, inspiring Tock herself to go on her quest – and the further we get, the more we’re going to see versions of certain fairy tales (that we humans are familiar with) pop up in Tock’s world.

So here’s the first, as a special treat! Hope you all look forward to more of these as much as I do (and as for how they’re going to pop up? Shhhh not telling!).

Thank you again, dear readers. Tock’s journey would not have gotten this far without you.

~ Beauty and the Beast ~

Long ago there lived a fair maiden, with her father and two sisters, in a sett much farther down the shoreline than here. Her mother had vanished before her babes were even walking, leaving their father to raise the girls alone. Still, they brightened his life, and he worked hard at trade with the neighboring setts and other nearby peoples – in order to provide for them a good and prosperous life.

(Everybody’s so pretty.)

Hope you enjoy the slight “upgrade” to the site’s look, and that you keep reading to see who all these strange folk are, and what’s to become of them! And thanks, always for your enjoyment of the comic and your support.
