Aaaaaaaaaaaand we’re back!!
Thank you very much for your patience, dear readers, during the Orcish Tent Correction. I am very, very relieved to be back to forward story motion and grateful to anyone who’s stuck around despite the delay!
Updates to the existing pages that needed edits will be happening asap – as I’ve mentioned on Patreon, the artwork for that is all finished, but the updated panels still need to be pasted into place. My photoshop skills are not the best, so that’s gonna take some time, but in the meantime I’ll be moving forward with new page production. Once edited, the scans of the updated panels will be available on Patreon, even before they’re put in their proper page places ❤
Thanks for your patience with updates in general, too -if the slow updates bother you, keep in mind that we’re getting closer to my first goal on Patreon, $50 monthly, which means 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!
Time for another patrons-only world building post!! A bit late for World Building Wednesday, but still.
Inspired by my own thoughts on Elves , Gnomes and Dwarves , this week we’re hearing an Elven take on where the Gnomes of Tock’s world came from.
Missed cross-posting these amidst art challenges and recent show prep, whoops! Thanks for your patience, dear readers.

Something fun AND Gnomevember-sourced (White Button Mushrooms) in regards to how much these Gnomes value mushrooms, in the face of their usual class division…
World Building Wednesday 66
Another Gnomevember-related one – looking at how the Gnomes of Tock’s world use mushrooms for trade!

Feeling nostalgic for family stuff today due to things going on in my own life, so here’s a look back at young Tock and her parents! Click on each image to enlarge.
Welcome to another patrons-only world building post, dear readers – and once again,
h a p p y O r c t o b e r !!! ❤
As the above sprig of lavender may imply, we’re looking a little bit more at an aspect of Orcish life that I’ve mentioned before – hunting and gathering.
Blessed! 👏 Orctober! 👏 Everyone! 👏💚
Starting off with Onna of course! I’m not sure if I’m gonna be following a prompt list, it’s been a very busy Autumn already so I kinda just wanna keep it casual and soft. We shall see.
An extra shoutout and huzzah to everyone who’s participating, HAVE FUN!! Roush horoga!! ⚔💕
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.
….*slowly turns up the volume on “Toki ni Ai wa” and walks away*
*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.
