More catchup time ^^; Thank you for your patience, dear readers, its been a very trying week.
Firstly, time for another World Building Wednesday post, then catch-up in order.
World Building Wednesday 17 & Orctober twenty four, “Wise”
As it says 🙂 Still pushing through with these for the Orcs of Tock’s world, but life-things prevented me from posting in a timely manner this weekend.
So here we go, with catchup:
As I’ve talked about before on Patreon, these Orcs are nomadic hunter-gatherers. So I imagine this lady got her timing messed up and kept foraging beyond the time that her people were supposed to regroup and start packing up camp, and now she had to hurry back to them (….by the look on her face, I feel like this happens to her a lot).
Pretty self-explanatory – though I did have something very different in mind for this one (Onna singing to Tock and Bumble, actually. She has a lovely singing voice, which hasn’t come up in the comic yet…… and I’m impatient….. ).
But the busy-ness of this weekend manifested this, instead, and I’m actually very pleased with how she came out.
Maybe most Orcs don’t sing, and as such, this lady is surprised to hear music in the forest…
Seven, “Fight” (and Sunday Gnomedays 10-7-18)
As I’ve also mentioned before, the Orcs and the Gnomes have a pretty good trade relationship that has existed for a while. Most of the time, such visits go smoothly… but sometimes, not as much!
By the way – in order to keep things interesting (and manageable) as I fulfill each prompt, all Sunday drawings will be combined with Sunday Gnomedays, and all Wednesday drawings will be combined with World Building Wednesdays.
Day 8 will be up later today ❤
Almost to a resolution ~ but, then!
Thank you for your patience in waiting for this page, I know it’s been a couple months ^^; That said – we’re very close to my first goal on Patreon, $50 monthly, for which I would guarantee a new page each month!! So if you’re not pledging yet but enjoy reading Tock’s story, please do consider signing up!
And as far as this page goes, I am very pleased with it myself, especially that first panel. Lots of little storytelling details in where everyone is looking 😉
And and, as I mentioned last page, The Orcish Language Guide is finally available! Click here to check it out. (Some of the words on today’s page are new, but they will be added as soon as possible.)
Lastly – Happy Orctober, too!!! I will be participating in that, even though I’m having a bit of a late start. More about that on my Instagram.
Two bonuses today for my Patreon patrons!! (And technically about half of one for everyone, since I always share the WBW art.)
Firstly, it’s time for another patrons-only world building post! This week, we’re looking at the mysterious Badger folk.
(And remember, all Ranger patrons are in the running to WIN that month’s drawing!)
Belatedly, that is, BUT that and Throwback Thursday all in one, as a result!
This week at Patreon we’re talking about the Elven Queensguard and government, as it was in the time of Misu and Mariatu 🌊💗🌊
This drawing features Reina, the Elven Queen from that time – who is one of the few characters from my pre-Tock work that has survived intact! (She’s on the left, btw.)
Here she is, in older incarnations:
(She looks pretty much the same, as you can see, except that now she gets to be happier! Yay! ……sorry Arella.)
(Also, shoutout to @photos_by_trinityhawk in the last older drawing, since it belongs to him 👍👍 and to my amazing Wife for fixing the ring in the picture and getting me into the show that inspired this drawing in the first place 😍 ).
Someone’s being a bit too flourishy ^^;
(More context on that here.)
Aaaaaaaaaand ANNOUNCEMENT TIME!!!
The Orcish Language Guide is finally available, on Patreon! Click here to check it out.
Time again for an exclusive world building post for my patrons! This week we’re talking about body image, and Gnomes, and Orcs.
