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!
Time for another patrons-only world building post, dear readers!
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!).
World Building Wednesday time! Which means, time for another patrons-only world building post, dear readers! (And last one of this most Orcish of months!)
This week, we’re looking at how Orcs currently deal with solar eclipses – and how they used to. All through the lens of a bonus, backstory short story, too!
Here we go!! (Not including today’s which will be drawn later.)
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….
From the aforementioned show prep event!
Warrior and Tea Faerie ❤
Queer loves inspired by a recent rewatch of Thor: Ragnarok (yes yes).
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.

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