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!
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.
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…)
A redraw of a previous illustration (with a bit more emotion since my own shipping has increased. Oh dear ;D ).
As noted before – while I’m working on correcting the Orcish tent issue on previous pages (which takes a lot of tracing/redrawing work I can’t just sit down and do without setting up a specific work station), I’ve been using my daily Tock Time* to finish up some bonus illustrations – which will be available as prints, in interest of my upcoming presence at Gears to Corsets, September 27th to 29th!
So here’s the second of those, featuring Tock and Onna, in their affectionate future.

*For those of you who don’t know, because of my busy schedule, daily “Tock Time” means at least 15 minutes a day working on the newest page of the comic. Since I work traditionally, this usually means just sitting down with pencils pen and paper and physically creating each page. However, things have been different lately, due to the reasons listed above.
Time for another patrons-only world building post, dear readers!
Because I am getting ready to travel for the weekend, we have something short and sweet about Eunan, his husband and the Brogh in general – regarding gender and child-raising.
Something bonusey for extra Sunday Gnomedays (drawn last night, but busy weekend means late posting!). My Wife and I are rewatching Veronica Mars in preparation for the new series, and as usual, Veronica and Wallace are giving me major Tock and Bumble feels.
(Don’t worry Bumble, I don’t think Tock would actually do that well in jail either 😅🎩💕)
As for current progress!
The Orcish tent redesign is going very well, slowly but surely. This week’s World Building Wednesday will feature the Chief’s-tent redesign and how/why that differs from their usual homes. The week after that, if all goes to plan, will feature the Great Hall’s redesign, and then I’m on to making page adjustments! Thank you for your patience, dear readers. I promise we will be back to forward story progress as soon as possible.
In the meantime, my daily “Tock Time” has gone to making progress on this month’s Ranger level bonus drawing (which will be a finished ink and subtle color piece this month instead of just a pencil illustration). WIPs on that are available for all Rogue level patrons, too, in lieu of the page progress WIPs I would usually be posting more regularly. Click here to check those out, too!
Thank you all, very much, for your patience again and for your enjoyment of Tock’s story always!
Happy Pride Month everyone ❤
