Backstory and denial!


That makes *3* new pages this month, including this milestone one!

I am so grateful to be telling Tock’s story, and to all of you for sticking around so long to read it. If you’re struggling with a project dear to your heart – from my own experience, I implore you not to give up. All progress, however small, is progress. And as Sam’s gaffer says, “It’s the job that never gets started that takes the longest to finish.” (“Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring,” JRR Tolkien)

🎶”Get off my case, I won’t saaaaaaay it!”🎶
This page fought me SO MUCH. But I’m happy with it now, and grateful that we are getting such a great series of Tock Faces out of this scene. Hehe.
Also, a progress note! -Thanksforyourpatiencewithupdates. We have just hit my first goal on Patreon, so at least one page a month is now guaranteed!! I’m trying to keep up a good momentum during social distancing, but iftheslowprogressbothersyou, please consider pledging – even as a little as a dollar gets us closer to the next goal, which would mean guaranteed updates bi-monthly!

Promo – World Building Wednesday 86

Time for another patrons-only world building post, dear readers! One that connects directly to the most recent page and provides one more piece of the puzzle that is Onna Kin-breaker.
As you can see on page 96, Onna is stricken by the scars on the Hogdragons she’s sheltering with. At first glance, this may imply that the Hogdragons are being badly treated, BUT all is not as it seems…..

Ta daaaaa, first full night scene page!! I have been dying to get to use this grey paper, and I am SO happy with how it looks. Test images of how I handled the green tones on it (since some of the pencils I use show up very differently here than on the white paper….and some not as differently as I’d planned!) are available in this and this WIP post(s).

As for the plot – yes, poor Onna 😦 But more shall be revealed as we move forward! I promise, I still believe in happy endings.

Thanks for your patience with updates -if the slow progress bothers you, keep in mind that we’re getting closer to my first goal here on Patreon, $50 monthly, which means I would guarantee a new page each month!! So if you’re not pledging yet but enjoy reading Tock’s story, please do consider signing up!

WIP on this and other pages here.

Contains existing pages 77 to 79, in the horizontal scrolling format that Webtoon features. All previous pages are available to read there, too! So if you haven’t read the comic, and you’re more of a fan of that manner of reading than page by page, please go take a look 💚 Link is above.

Promo – World Building Wednesday 84

Time for another patrons-only world building post, dear readers!
This week – inspired by a conversation I’ve been having with a dear friend (and patron, thanks Steph!) who lives half the world away – we’re looking a little bit more at the birds of Tock’s world, and what place they hold in it.
