“Pride Wings” – and an announcement!

pridewings_tockthegnome
Finished up last month’s Ranger bonus drawing for some self care (and to use for the new footer image for Webtoon episodes! ). There’s another one up today, we’re almost caught up to the current pages!
And that would make me nervous, exceeeeeeept:
🌼🎉With the generosity of my  patrons, I have hit my first goal on Patreon, which now guarantees monthly pages AND  upgrades the Ranger/Paladin bonus to an ink drawing instead of a pencil illustration!!! 🎉🌼
Imagine I am dancing with you, because I am. We’re making a beautiful Faerie ring together and I can’t wait, with your help, to grow Tock’s story and world more and more!
Extra shoutouts and patron-welcomes to Sarah, Aunt Nomie (who upped her pledge) and Bryndon, I hope you enjoy the extras and please comment/message me anytime if there’s anything you’d like to see more of. And to Kate, whose feedback is so constant and indispensable, my word. And to ALL of you – I treasure your support and faith in me. Truly.

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…..

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.

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

This week, we have a short tale about the Gnomish afterlife – or that space between life and death.

Note: This is canon, but it certainly isn’t something Tock or Bumble or any other living Gnome is aware of. So, keep that in mind, and more on that as things progress….

Issue 3 release note – digital only

 

Hello dear readers!

As many of you might be experiencing, my state (among many others) is basically on lockdown to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. Which means that non-essential businesses have been temporarily closed until further notice.

Which means that my printer is currently closed too.

Which means no print copies of issue 3 until they open back up.

LEAD Technologies Inc. V1.01

So.

Issue 3 will still release on schedule, just digitally for now on my Etsy. It will also be available complimentary for all my patrons, no matter what pledge level, so don’t forget to sign up there for that and for many other bonuses (including World Building Wednesday and WIP shots on each new page)!

As I’ve said before, bonuses and page progress will continue as usual in the face of everything that’s going on too. I hope you’re all staying as safe and sane as possible, and no matter what, may we all keep creating as best we can ❤

Thanks, always always, for reading and for your support!

Up a day late because I completely lost track of what day of the week it was yesterday – thanks for your patience, dear readers!
This week, we’re looking a bit closer at the Elves – specifically those of them that have those little wings on their hips, how they got them, and what they believe that means.
Also! Preparations are underway for print issue 3 ❤ More information on that here, and more WIP on page 95 here!

Promo – World Building Wednesday 72, AND an announcement!

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

This week, we’re looking at the flip side of an already established fact. Fae that are closer to the Heart of Faerie are non-detectable by non-magical beings – if that is so, what do they look like when non-magical beings do see them?

ALSO!! Fun announcement time – due to popular demand, “Tock the Gnome” is now available on Webtoon!

Since the format for Webtoon is notably different from how I usually structure pages, I’ll be gradually uploading the existing comic content there, with a small update every Tuesday until I’m caught up to the current pages.

Where things are, lately

Good morning, dear readers 💚✨
Just wanted to share a bit about where things are, progress-wise.
Page 94 is actually done, as of 6am this morning! I am very busy with commissions this week, but hope to have it posted in the next couple of days, as well as proper scans of all the Orcish Tent Correction redraws.
My plan, as I move forward, is to post the redraw scans on Patreon as they are, and get them put in place on the existing pages as soon as possible – that isn’t going to be an immediate update (I need help with my Photoshop skills, so my amazing Wife will be stepping in to paste them into the old pages, and that will take some time). So I will be keeping the old pages up, for now, with a note about the upcoming edit and apology for the issue, and then replace them asap.
This also means the story will continue to move forward, from here, anyway! Production on page 95 will start tomorrow. I am so relieved to be getting back to new page creation and can’t wait for you all to see what’s next.
I am also hoping, this year, to create pages more regularly – I haven’t figured out exactly how to make that work, but scrambling to find only minutes each day to work on new pages is no longer okay with me. I need to make a change. More on that as I figure it out (or honestly, you might just see it working by more regular updates!). I also hope to get posted somewhere like Webtoon, for better exposure. Not to invoke the dreaded e-word, but platforms like that are growing rapidly, and it would be foolish of me not to give it a shot. I’ve been asked at pretty much every comic-related event I tabled at last year if I’m on there. So maybe it’s time to listen.
I’ll still be on here, of course, and all other sites I use to broaden the reach of Tock’s tale!
And don’t forget, you can always help me get to more regular updates by pledging on Patreon! Every pledge helps, no matter how small. The more I make here ➡ the less I have to be at my day job ➡ the more time I have for furthering this project! And of course, each pledge comes with some lovely benefits. More information on my main page.
Thanks for sticking with me, everyone. Hope the new year has been kind to you so far, and that you’re looking forward to the next steps in this journey we’re taking together!

Inspired by my own thoughts on Elves , Gnomes and Dwarves , this week we’re hearing an Elven take on where the Gnomes of Tock’s world came from.

Happy Thank You Patrons Day! <3

thankyoupatrons2019_tockthegnome
Happy #thankyoupatrons day!
The fact that anyone is willing to subscribe to help me further Tock’s story means the WORLD to me. Without you, it would be a LOT harder for me to keep drawing her forward. Your support helps pay my expenses as I need to replace art supplies, keep my house lighted and heated, keep the internet on to I can do the research I need to make her world stronger and better (and, you know, post anything in the first place!).
Suffice it to say, “Tock the Gnome” would not be happening without YOU. 
So, my deepest gratitude, always. 
(And those of you who are already Patrons – stay tuned for a new bonus illustration and unwatermarked version of the drawing above, posting on Patreon later today ❤ …and those of you who aren’t, click below to sign up!)

As promised, this week is the last of the Orcish tent redesign – the Grand Hall. As originally intended, each Orc campsite has a central structure in the middle that serves as a meeting place for the whole community, and that will still be the case – with some significant changes, however!
