The angst continues…..

Also continuing to use Orcish un-translated, since it’ll be important HOW they handle Tock and Bumble’s lack of understanding. Hopefully that doesn’t feel like it’s taking too long, dear readers – let me know if it’s dragging, and I will let you know when the Orcish Language Guide is available, too!

As I mentioned last time, some of these angry new faces will be familiar to you if you’ve read the “Meanwhile…” bonus scene (available to all patrons, along with many other goodies).

Finally. In more ways than one.
Some of these angry new faces will be familiar to you if you’ve read the “Meanwhile…” bonus scene (available to all patrons btw) , and I am very excited for this confrontation, let me tell you.
Also that Tol and his delightful beard are back. SO much fun to draw.
Aaaaand two reminders:
If you missed my post on Orcish Mouth Improvement, I have a VERY casual tutorial up here.
And don’t forget there’s a special going on until May 1st – if you pledge before then, you get an exclusive print! As well as access to all bonuses at whatever level you choose, of course. More info through the link.

Visual notes – Orc Teeth

20180321_201422[1]
Some unexpected visual notes – I could do better with Orc tusks. So here we are.
Consider me humbled and impressed at all the gorgeous and impressive Orcish cosplay out there (which my Wife and I relied on *heavily* to correct this situation. Thanks also, always, to her for pointing out that this adjustment was needed. She always makes me better than I think I am or can be).
…..now on to fixing page 84 ^^;
At least this was a chance to feature Onna’s warrior hair!
And as Maya Angelou said, “Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better.”

Patreon ‘Spirit Renewal’ Special!

spiritrenewalspecial_longfile
So today marks a special anniversary for me, and with Spring approaching, I imagine we’re all looking forward to that refreshment (….sorry any southern-hemisphere friends, unless you like Autumn!).
With gratitude for both those things in mind, it’s time for a special offer!
From today until May 1st, all existing and new “Tock the Gnome” patrons will receive a 5×7″ print of the above piece – “A Faerie Moment” – as an extra ‘thank you’ bonus!
(And to be clear, that’s the ONLY way to get a print of this piece. Ever.)
Pledging also includes access to all the other bonus material at the level you choose, of course – bonus art, early access to the pages in the form of WIP’s, world-building material and extra scenes and stories, backstory, etc.!
I may have been working on Tock’s story for 7 years now, but its been only in the last few years that I’ve really started coming at it from a healthy place, one where I am worthy of the support you all give me and the enthusiasm you have about her quest. I am very grateful that so many people have stuck with it even when I’ve been less than my best. Your support and your patience mean the world to me. Nothing fills my heart with Light and Purpose the way that sharing Tock’s world with you does.
So thank you, truly, from the bottom of my heart.

Well, someone’s had enough of this conversation she can’t understand.

Also – backgrounds, wooo! After so many pages of very little background, this was a challenge and I’m quite pleased with how it turned out. Between that and the rush of action in the first 4 panels (and those being so tightly packed together) I really wanted this page to snap us right back into the reality of what’s going on – i.e. the very real, potential danger for all three of our heroes. We’ve gotten to focus on just the mystery of Onna’s situation a bit for the last few pages, but there is a lot more going on than her reluctance and Tock’s curiosity.

Also also please, if you’re interested in me posting a translation guide for the Orcish, raise your hand!
