Time for another patrons-only world building post, dear readers! (This promo posted a bit late due to exhaustion/feeling under the weather, thanks for your patience.)

This week, we’re looking at some of the details in the background of the next page, and what they signify.

Aaaaaaaaaaaand we’re back!!

Thank you very much for your patience, dear readers, during the Orcish Tent Correction. I am very, very relieved to be back to forward story motion and grateful to anyone who’s stuck around despite the delay!

Updates to the existing pages that needed edits will be happening asap – as I’ve mentioned on Patreon, the artwork for that is all finished, but the updated panels still need to be pasted into place. My photoshop skills are not the best, so that’s gonna take some time, but in the meantime I’ll be moving forward with new page production. Once edited, the scans of the updated panels will be available on Patreon, even before they’re put in their proper page places ❤

Thanks for your patience with updates in general, 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 yet but enjoy reading Tock’s story, please do consider signing up!

Time for another patrons-only world building post, dear readers!
This week we’re looking a bit more at Orcish religion, which has been touched on a bit here and here before. As stated, the Orcs primarily worship a masculine solar deity – but this has not always been the case….

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

This week, we’re looking a bit closer at the role of the Orcish Chieftain and Chieftain-in-training, based on some scrapped notes from a page that was originally planned for the next batch – and especially in honor of my own mother, who’s birthday is today!
(Also, revisiting this old drawing from last year’s Orctober!  For a full shot of and context on the image, click here!  My apologies for there not being any new art this week.)

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

Today, continuing with Orcish celebration, we are looking at how the Orcs use their written language – what is not recorded that way vs. what is.

Welcome to another patrons-only world building post, dear readers – and once again,

h a p p y  O r c t o b e r !!! ❤

As the above sprig of lavender may imply, we’re looking a little bit more at an aspect of Orcish life that I’ve mentioned before – hunting and gathering.

WIP preview – the Orcish tent correction, page 74

20190914_162842

So this has been going on ❤

I’ve talked a lot more about these edits (and shown more WIP shots) on Patreon, but even though I haven’t said much here, I assure you that progress has been happening. It doesn’t feel right, to me, to push forward on new pages until I’ve corrected the existing ones. So rest assured that even though it may seem like we’ve stalled out on Tock’s story, we are indeed still moving forward – and I absolutely haven’t given up yet!

See more WIP on this page here!

See more WIP on these edits in general here!

Thank you for your patience, dear readers 🎩
