Visual notes – Orc Teeth

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).
… 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


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!


Check out “Tock the Gnome” on Patreon ~*~ Buy me a coffee ~

Thank you!

Happy Holidays, 2017


Inspired by “A Christmas Carol,” which I’ve been enjoying even more than usual this year – Onna as the spirit of the Past, Tock as the spirit of the Present, and Bumble as the spirit of “Yet to come.”

Happy Holidays, dear readers! I hope you have a lovely season, blessed and bright.

(And Blessed Yule to anyone celebrating! Sabbat sketch will be up at later ❤ )

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!

Page production resumes today! 😀 Thank you for your patience, we had an amazing time.
And for funsies, here’s all the references in the drawing:
Tock – Belle’s gown, Thor’s helmet
Onna – sword of Shan Yu, Mickey ears in her hair, Ikran (from Avatar) on her shoulder
Bumble – scepter and crown of the Queen of Hearts, bag from Erin McKenna’s NYC Bakery
Eunan – Jedi robes
Actia – Ariel tail

Gnomevember 2017 Day 1

Whoops forgot to post this yesterday, BUT Gnomevember has begun!!!
(And starting with Tock and Onna, since last year we started with Tock and Bumble, AND the only Orctober post I got to do was also these two lovelies.
I’ll be posting any Tock-related ones here, of course, but all Gnomevember entries can be seen on my main site here.)
Today’s prompt – “Up and Away!”
