Happy beginning of MerMay everyone!
(This is also a “Tock the Gnome” patreon bonus – that Elven lady in the middle of an intense Mermaid hug is Mariatu. Surrounding her is her Wife, Misu. They are an important part of the backstory of Tock’s world and there are many bonus pieces relating to them and mermaid/elf culture there. See more here.)
This is also especially dedicated to my own Mer-Llady Wife 🐚💗🦈
Good luck to all of us participating!
More for “Seven Years of Tock!”
A little context: this is part of a two part set, working backwards from the way things are now.
Now, the characters live in a world where all the peoples are very separated. Gnomes live in technological isolation, Dwarves live buried within the plateau, Orcs keep to themselves (except to battle with the Badgerfolk, and sometimes each other). Everyone else, pretty much forgotten about.
But it was not always so, and while that lost history contains a lot of Love, it sometimes contains distinct tragedies.
Tock will learn more about these in time, but for now, here’s a little taste.
(ALSO, this one contains the oldest of the old character work that I pulled into Tock’s world for backstory, as mentioned here. You can see more of my previous work on them in their folder at my deviantArt site. So that makes this a Throwback Thursday special too, right?)
Thanks for reading, everyone! More bonuses coming up this weekend and into next week, with a special surprise on the actual anniversary day – August 30th – as promised!
