Promo – World Building Wednesday 70

IMG_20191225_164220_365.jpg
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.

As it says ❤

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!

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!)

Promo – World Building Wednesday 64

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….

From the aforementioned show prep event!

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!)

Orctober 2019 the 19th

IMG_20191019_181857_247

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?”

More on the Orc language in “Tock the Gnome” is always available on Patreon, by the way!

Orctober catchup / Promo – WBW 61

IMG_20191009_212805_297

In this week’s patrons-only world building post,  we’re looking at the other side of Orcish warfare – war creates wounds, both psychological and physical, and that means intense healing!

~** Full post available here **~

Aaaaand as for the catchup:

The 6th / Sunday Gnomedays 10-6-19 – Tock and Onna Tock and Onna Tock and Onna ❤

The 7th – Just needed a quick self-care Orc with butterflies.

IMG_20191008_203120_645

The 8th –  Not sure where this one came from, but I feel like it has a story – perhaps this Orcish maiden may have been considering taking this Dragon’s egg home for a meal, but the butterfly landing on her finger gave her pause? 🦋 (Dragons are absolutely friends, not food, in Tock’s world btw, and the Orcs and all the other races – except the Gnomes – would be familiar with them from a distance. More on that in the future…)
