Happy Free Comic Book Day!

From Tock and all the rest of the crew ❤

Thank you for reading her story and helping me be part of the comics world (the BEST form of storytelling imho), and thank you to all the writers, artists and comic book stores that made today awesome!

Restructuring the Patreon site…

Hello dear readers.

So, the Spirit Renewal Print Special I have up on Patreon is not going exactly as I had hoped, which is leading me to rethink what I am offering there.

The rewards currently available for each patron level are listed here (on the right hand side of the page), and here is what I have in mind for adjustments:

Fighter

For basic support up to $3, you will get access to WIP’s on bonus art and sometimes the pages themselves, as well as one bonus world-building post per week as I write/draw to develop Tock’s world.

Rogue

For each pledge of $3 or more, you’ll get early access to comic pages in the form of WIP shots as each page takes form – including thumbnails, notes, full shots of the page in pencil and ink stages, and closeups of all other WIP on it (in addition to all previous rewards).

Ranger

For each pledge of $7 or more, you’ll get access to one exclusive Tock-related drawing per month (in addition to all previous rewards).

Paladin

For each pledge of $14 or more, you’ll get a monthly print of the Ranger level drawing sent to you via regular mail, with a personalized thank you note and bonus pencil sketch (in addition to all previous rewards).

Mage

For each pledge of $25 or more, I will provide a personal pencil drawing of a character of your choice – either one already in the comic, or a new one from one of the world’s races (in addition to all previous rewards, including the Paladin level print). You’ll get a high resolution scan of the image as well as the original sent to you via regular mail, with a personalized thank you note and bonus pencil sketch.

Bard

For each pledge of $50 or more, I will provide a finished illustration in the style of the comic (ink and simple colorwork) of a character of your choice – either one already in the comic, or a new one from one of the world’s races (in addition to all previous rewards, including the Paladin print and Mage pencil drawing). You’ll get a high resolution scan of the image as well as the original sent to you via regular mail, with a personalized thank you note and bonus pencil sketch.

Soooo let me know what you think of these changes, if you please!


Another lovely feature!

As I’ve posted about before, I’ve been blessed enough that Tock has been featured by a few other artists in her history. I’m pleased to say that that has happened again – in a panel of MistyTang‘s new comic, “The Chronicles of Dru: Larger than Life!”

Not going to share the picture here since it’s not mine, but please click the link above, take a look for our heroine and then check out the rest of the comic!

MistyTang makes amazing stories, with a super fun style and a great balance of angst and fluff in her romances. I’ve been a fan of hers for a while, and look up to her as a writer/artist, so I am indeed fangirling a smidge.

And a shoutout again to all the other features I’ve gotten. Huge amounts of gratitude for all the Tock love, everyone. I am so honored.

 

 


Two lovely features!

“Tock the Gnome” has been fortunate enough to receive two very kind features lately!

Firstly, fantasy writer/artist Stephanie Black (who I am lucky to call a friend) gave the comic an absolutely wonderful write-up on her page at dA. I am so grateful for her kind words! Click here to give it a read, as well as the recommendation she gives another awesome sounding series.

Thank you, Stephanie ❤

Also, fellow comic artist and writer Alejandro Lee (of the very entertaining Steampunk Western “Sally Spocket and Piston Pete“) did a HUGE piece featuring many, many characters from many, many series, and he was nice enough to include Tock!

Here’s a closeup of Tock herself:

See if you can spot her in the big picture! Thanks so much, Alejandro ❤

Also importantly, Tock and other characters have been drawn before by the wonderful GiantPanda from dA and Akili Amethyst.

I am very thankful whenever I get to see Tock and her company drawn by others. So thank you very much to everyone who feels inspired by the story and characters and is kind enough to give them a shoutout, visually, in writing or otherwise!

And as always, each and every one of you is fantastic for reading. Thank you ❤
