Day 29, “Skull”
(Almost drew her making a kissy-face at it, but I think this came out even better.)
Day 30, “Rest”
Featuring Onna and Tock once again (though I’m sure they’ll get plenty of attention during Gnomevember 💕). Felt like this was a good lead up to the coming Gnome-focused challenge – and those of you following the comic will hopefully appreciate this moment of schmoop ….since they’re taking their time to get there ^^;
One day more!!!
Catching up again 😀 We’re almost there!
Day 25, “Love”
This idea came to me, a manifestation of how we must channel Love through ourselves in order to give it to others….. I’m happier with it the more I look at it, but it still doesn’t exactly match what was in my mind. Hope the meaning still comes across okay.
Day 26+27, “History” and “Fire”
I ended up combining these two with the idea that for these Orcs, the central campfire of their tribe’s camp represents their connection to their sun deity and all their ancestors that walked the path of life before them.
Day 28, “Breath”
Featuring an Orc noblewoman and a Gnome noblewoman, to account for the hat (“Tock the Gnome” Gnomes only wear pointed hats for status reasons and fancy occasions, more on that at Patreon here).
And as for the image itself – we all breathe the same air, don’t we?
Commitment to Faerie. Commitment to life. Committment to oneself ❤
Needed something more positive and peaceful for this one, even if there must be a bit of violent seriousness.
(Posting from my phone, so no handy links, buuuut instead enjoy this preview of my freshly carved Samhain pumpkin!)
(…..Orctober is the best 😀 )
Which got me thinking about Onna, and what she thinks she “should” have been 🤫
(Today’s/Sunday Gnomedays coming later, with prompt “Leader”….)
As it says 🙂 Still pushing through with these for the Orcs of Tock’s world, but life-things prevented me from posting in a timely manner this weekend.
So here we go, with catchup:
As I’ve talked about before on Patreon, these Orcs are nomadic hunter-gatherers. So I imagine this lady got her timing messed up and kept foraging beyond the time that her people were supposed to regroup and start packing up camp, and now she had to hurry back to them (….by the look on her face, I feel like this happens to her a lot).
Pretty self-explanatory – though I did have something very different in mind for this one (Onna singing to Tock and Bumble, actually. She has a lovely singing voice, which hasn’t come up in the comic yet…… and I’m impatient….. ).
But the busy-ness of this weekend manifested this, instead, and I’m actually very pleased with how she came out.
Maybe most Orcs don’t sing, and as such, this lady is surprised to hear music in the forest…
Seven, “Fight” (and Sunday Gnomedays 10-7-18)
As I’ve also mentioned before, the Orcs and the Gnomes have a pretty good trade relationship that has existed for a while. Most of the time, such visits go smoothly… but sometimes, not as much!
By the way – in order to keep things interesting (and manageable) as I fulfill each prompt, all Sunday drawings will be combined with Sunday Gnomedays, and all Wednesday drawings will be combined with World Building Wednesdays.
Day 8 will be up later today ❤
As it says 😀
(….really wanted to put “guffaw” in there instead of “ha,” but it wouldn’t have fit visually. Still, I imagine he is having a good guffaw.)
Time for another Patrons-only world building post! AND Happy Orctober the third: Rain.
This week we’re looking at what the Orcs of Tock’s world do when it rains.
Aaaaaaand Orctober the second, Flower. Featuring Onna’s glorious hair.
