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 we’re looking a little closer at what’s going on with the rest of the fae of the world – those that are closer to the Heart, and thus not impacted by the loss of magic – and why they haven’t gotten involved.

Here we go!! (Not including today’s which will be drawn later.)

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….

Queer loves inspired by a recent rewatch of Thor: Ragnarok (yes yes).

IMG_20191026_200041_621

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.

Orctober 2019 the 17th and 18th

Little bit of catchup!

IMG_20191017_211504_784

Firstly, 17, a Tock-style Orcish matron (mostly just playing around with Orc fashion and flowy hair ^^; ).

IMG_20191017_211603_521

And secondly, 18 – featuring Tol, a side character who warms my heart because he is one of the only members of Onna’s clan who is still polite to her (….well, polite-ish 😅).

This maaaaaay also begin a March of the “Tock the Gnome” Background Orcs because there’s so many that are fun to draw and won’t be getting a lot of page-time (and which technically already started on day two…). We shall see!

I feel like this Orc is newly married, and having received a flower from their beloved, feels very loved and blessed.

Also, a bird, because I needed one today 🍃
