First ~ Previous ~ Next (coming soon!)

Aaaaaaaaaaaand we’re back!!

Thank you very much for your patience, dear readers, during the Orcish Tent Correction. I am very, very relieved to be back to forward story motion and grateful to anyone who’s stuck around despite the delay!

Updates to the existing pages that needed edits will be happening asap – as I’ve mentioned on Patreon, the artwork for that is all finished, but the updated panels still need to be pasted into place. My photoshop skills are not the best, so that’s gonna take some time, but in the meantime I’ll be moving forward with new page production. Once edited, the scans of the updated panels will be available on Patreon, even before they’re put in their proper page places ❤

Thanks for your patience with updates in general, too -if the slow updates bother you, keep in mind that we’re getting closer to my first goal 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!

Promo – World Building Wednesday 69

Time for another patrons-only world building post, dear readers!
This week we’re looking a bit more at Orcish religion, which has been touched on a bit here and here before. As stated, the Orcs primarily worship a masculine solar deity – but this has not always been the case….

Promo – World Building Wednesday 68

Time for another patrons-only world building post, dear readers!

This week, we’re looking a bit closer at the role of the Orcish Chieftain and Chieftain-in-training, based on some scrapped notes from a page that was originally planned for the next batch – and especially in honor of my own mother, who’s birthday is today!
(Also, revisiting this old drawing from last year’s Orctober!  For a full shot of and context on the image, click here!  My apologies for there not being any new art this week.)

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

IMG_20191019_181857_247

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!
