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!).

The 22nd

Which also would have been World Building Wednesday, but that had to be on pause for last week due to show prep. Anyhow, here’s something about what happens (or used to happen) during eclipses….

The 25th

Queer loves inspired by a recent rewatch of Thor: Ragnarok (yes yes).

The 26th

Inspired by a recent viewing of “The Hobbit.” ….I love me some Tolkien, I do, but whenever I watch anything LotR-related I end up drawing some of my own Orcs very, very confused.

Language note! ‘Eka’ means ‘no.’ Full Orcish Language Guide available here.

The 27th/Sunday Gnomedays 10-27-19

I imagine these two end up on wondrous adventures, protecting whatever preciousness that star stands for.

The 28th

Sometimes, you’ve gotta be fierce and stern.

More to come – we’re almost there, everybody!

(Aaaaaand in case you don’t follow my other sites- next month’s drawing challenge prompt list is up here!)

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 ^^; ).

IMG_20191017_211603_521

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!

Orctober catchup and Sunday Gnomedays 10-13-19

Thanks for your patience, everybody, while I was away at my brother’s wedding!

(These are not in numerical order, but follow my notes in the order the images are posted above, and it will all make sense.)

So, numbers 14, 12 and 15, first – all three of those being Tock-verse-framed BUT 14 and 15 being non-exactly-canon, as the Orcs are not exactly aware of broader Faerie (…yet) and don’t have magic (…at the moment).

And lastly, number 13/Sunday Gnomedays 10-13-19 – a non-Tock entry (gasp!) featuring Orc and Gnome of “Orc and Gnome’s Mild Aventures!” If you haven’t checked out their comic yet, DO! It is veryvery fun, and another adventure-based Orc/Gnome romance. Delicious ❤

Stayed tuned for more “Tock the Gnome” Orctober later today with World Building Wednesday!
