IMG_20191209_184643_178

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.)

Orctober 2019 the 31st ~ Blessed Samhain!

Challenge complete! 💚🙌💚

Blessed Samhain as well, to all beloved living and beloved dead.

So here’s Onna, at the burial site of her beloved mentor, shortly before Tock’s arrival. More context available for patrons as always. And if you are celebrating today, may your day be filled with wonder and magic (and candy!).

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!

Orctober 2019 the 17th and 18th

Little bit of catchup!

IMG_20191017_211504_784

Firstly, 17, a Tock-style Orcish matron (mostly just playing around with Orc fashion and flowy hair ^^; ).

And secondly, 18 – featuring Tol, a side character who warms my heart because he is one of the only members of Onna’s clan who is still polite to her (….well, polite-ish 😅).

This maaaaaay also begin a March of the “Tock the Gnome” Background Orcs because there’s so many that are fun to draw and won’t be getting a lot of page-time (and which technically already started on day two…). We shall see!
