Bonus art – Dance Lessons II

dancelessons2_wm

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.

World Building Wednesday 27 – Romantic Relationships

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

img_20190116_174011_162

This week we’re talking about romance –  where that fits within some of the cultures Tock and Bumble have started to encounter, and what each culture intends for that to be.

Full post here.

Sketch – Onna vs. Robin

Having a Throwback Thursday moment and wanting to share this with you guys ❤

This was originally a Patrons-only bonus over on Patreon, but with Spring approaching, I saw a robin for the first time (this season) a couple days ago and wanted to celebrate somehow! So in lieu of new artwork, I hope you enjoy this!

(Fun fact that will come up eventually: Onna is afraid of birdies. Even sweet little ones ^^; )

Many more bonus sketches and extra world-building information available on Patreon too, at any pledge level. Aaaaaaand stay tuned this Saturday for a special, related announcement!

Bonus art – Nosebump

Two Gnome women bumping noses, indicating their romantic interest in one another.

In Gnomish courtship, bumping noses is the step before – and just as serious – as the first kiss. Its often used to clarify intentions, if the two involved were friends first. Touching noses is also sometimes a greeting between family members, but obviously in a different context and with different weight.
