Visual notes – Orc Teeth

20180321_201422[1]
Some unexpected visual notes – I could do better with Orc tusks. So here we are.
Consider me humbled and impressed at all the gorgeous and impressive Orcish cosplay out there (which my Wife and I relied on *heavily* to correct this situation. Thanks also, always, to her for pointing out that this adjustment was needed. She always makes me better than I think I am or can be).
…..now on to fixing page 84 ^^;
At least this was a chance to feature Onna’s warrior hair!
And as Maya Angelou said, “Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better.”

Sketch – Onna vs. Robin

sketch___onna_vs__robin___tock_the_gnome__by_rachelillustrates-dc5yk0k

Having a Throwback Thursday moment and wanting to share this with you guys ❤

This was originally a Patrons-only bonus over on Patreon, but with Spring approaching, I saw a robin for the first time (this season) a couple days ago and wanted to celebrate somehow! So in lieu of new artwork, I hope you enjoy this!

(Fun fact that will come up eventually: Onna is afraid of birdies. Even sweet little ones ^^; )

Many more bonus sketches and extra world-building information available on Patreon too, at any pledge level. Aaaaaaand stay tuned this Saturday for a special, related announcement!

Well, someone’s had enough of this conversation she can’t understand.

Also – backgrounds, wooo! After so many pages of very little background, this was a challenge and I’m quite pleased with how it turned out. Between that and the rush of action in the first 4 panels (and those being so tightly packed together) I really wanted this page to snap us right back into the reality of what’s going on – i.e. the very real, potential danger for all three of our heroes. We’ve gotten to focus on just the mystery of Onna’s situation a bit for the last few pages, but there is a lot more going on than her reluctance and Tock’s curiosity.

Also also please, if you’re interested in me posting a translation guide for the Orcish, raise your hand!

Inkwork is complete, and posted in full for Rogue level patrons (with dialogue too) over on Patreon! Yay!

This is actually a very simple page, so hopefully color work won’t take too long. Work on every other project I have going on has been pushing longer than I expected, but I do plan in the deepest parts of my heart to get this page finished before the year is over.

Thank you for your patience, dear readers.

Tock, back from vacation!
