Promo – World Building Wednesday 72, AND an announcement!

worldbuildingwednesday72_1_tockthegnome

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?

Click here for the full post, with more bonus art!

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.

Time for another patrons-only world building post, dear readers! (And happy holidays to anyone celebrating!)
This week, inspired by the dElfcember prompt of “gratitude,” we’re looking a bit at Queen Reina’s life and ascension to Queenhood. – and a bit about another character believed to be connected to her, as well.

Be it Peacenight-time or an Earthen holiday that warms your heart, may your celebrations be joyous and full of Love!

Thanks for following Tock’s tale this year everyone, especially in the face of some massive delays. Your patience and readership truly mean the world to me. Here’s to next year being the best one yet, for all of us!

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.)

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

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!)
