Time for another patrons-only world building post, dear readers! 
I apologize for this one being late, I was travelling to visit family and got some sad news about a dear friend, and didn’t have the energy to get it posted on time. Thank you for your patience – here it is now, short and (bitter)sweet, and and establishes something you might have already guessed…

Promo – World Building Wednesday

Time for another patrons-only world building post, dear readers!
Today, we’re taking another look at what I’ve called “The Chances,” inspired by this quote from The Sidhe: Wisdom from the Celtic Otherworld, by John Matthews

Time for another patrons-only world building post, my dear readers!
Today we are looking at Arella’s parents – the Queen and King before she and her brother Archibald took the throne – and how Gnomish government could have worked in times of more realm-wide crisis.

World Building Wednesday 9 AND Ranger Bonus preview!

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.

There is a LOT I could say about these guys – don’t want to give too-too much away yet, but you might be able to deduce some things from what I’ve posted about Eunan so far. As such, I will speak on one thing that ties into his own abilities: their religion.

Aaaaaand secondly,  as of yesterday, this month’s Ranger-level piece is up!  Which could be called “The Chances II, also including Bumble and Prince Archibald.”

(And remember, all Ranger patrons are in the running to WIN that month’s drawing!)

Sketch – Arella manifests

Some self-care sketching from yesterday, during a much needed low-key late morning/afternoon. Featuring Arella from the backstory of Tock’s world – another bonus (more angsty) drawing of her is available now on Patreon, and more on her in general available here 🌹

Sketch – Arella and Strahl kiss

sketch_arellastrahl_kiss_tockthegnome

So, clearly, productivity has been really low this month due to other projects – but I can say that page 79 is very close to done (inkwork viewable here / pencilwork viewable here) and this month’s Patreon Ranger Bonus sketch is on its way.

I’ve been really feeling this part of the world’s backstory lately, so here’s something else about these two in the meantime!

(Also, I’m sure kisses like this will come up again in the comic, and I hadn’t figured out how to draw them yet, so yay for this having come out well! And I had originally planned to draw something else up in the right corner/side, but I actually like how they look with all that space pressing around them.)

More bonuses, backstory content and full comic available at Patreon! (Comic itself is free to read anytime – click here to start ❤ )

Bonus art, Blue like Bruises

More for “Seven Years of Tock!”

A little context: this is part of a two part set, working backwards from the way things are now.

Now, the characters live in a world where all the peoples are very separated. Gnomes live in technological isolation, Dwarves live buried within the plateau, Orcs keep to themselves (except to battle with the Badgerfolk, and sometimes each other). Everyone else, pretty much forgotten about.

But it was not always so, and while that lost history contains a lot of Love, it sometimes contains distinct tragedies.

Tock will learn more about these in time, but for now, here’s a little taste.

(ALSO, this one contains the oldest of the old character work that I pulled into Tock’s world for backstory, as mentioned here. You can see more of my previous work on them in their folder at my deviantArt site. So that makes this a Throwback Thursday special too, right?)

Thanks for reading, everyone! More bonuses coming up this weekend and into next week, with a special surprise on the actual anniversary day – August 30th – as promised!
