First ~ Previous ~ Next (coming soon!)

The angst continues…..

Also continuing to use Orcish un-translated, since it’ll be important HOW they handle Tock and Bumble’s lack of understanding. Hopefully that doesn’t feel like it’s taking too long, dear readers – let me know if it’s dragging, and I will let you know when the Orcish Language Guide is available, too!

As I mentioned last time, some of these angry new faces will be familiar to you if you’ve read the “Meanwhile…” bonus scene (available to all patrons, along with many other goodies).

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!


WIP – “Tock Daydreaming”

wip_tockdaydreams_rachelillustrates

“WIP Wednesday,” that is, with some bonus art progress!

I don’t get to show off Tock’s plumpness very much in the comic, due to the fun of corsets (really the only other times we’ve gotten to see it are in “Resurgam” and these two patron bonus pieces, “Tock’s Carwen Altar” and “Moonlight Stroll at the Camp”).

But in interest of getting to do that – since the need for me to push the body-positivity of the series has been brought VERY much to my attention lately –  I’m redoing an old sketch of her daydreaming.

More WIP of this will be available for all patrons on Patreon as I go, btw. And don’t forget about the exclusive print special – only available for 12 more days!

Finally. In more ways than one.
Some of these angry new faces will be familiar to you if you’ve read the “Meanwhile…” bonus scene (available to all patrons btw) , and I am very excited for this confrontation, let me tell you.
Also that Tol and his delightful beard are back. SO much fun to draw.
Aaaaand two reminders:
If you missed my post on Orcish Mouth Improvement, I have a VERY casual tutorial up here.
And don’t forget there’s a special going on until May 1st – if you pledge before then, you get an exclusive print! As well as access to all bonuses at whatever level you choose, of course. More info through the link.

Sketch – Tock and Light

Sometimes progress is finishing a comic page or a grand, complicated commission.

Sometimes progress is a tiny ink drawing of your main character looking more hopeful than you expected.

(Slowly getting back to work after a rough week. More WIP available at Patreon, as always, link is below ❤ )

Patreon ‘Spirit Renewal’ Special!

spiritrenewalspecial_longfile
So today marks a special anniversary for me, and with Spring approaching, I imagine we’re all looking forward to that refreshment (….sorry any southern-hemisphere friends, unless you like Autumn!).
With gratitude for both those things in mind, it’s time for a special offer!
From today until May 1st, all existing and new “Tock the Gnome” patrons will receive a 5×7″ print of the above piece – “A Faerie Moment” – as an extra ‘thank you’ bonus!
(And to be clear, that’s the ONLY way to get a print of this piece. Ever.)
Pledging also includes access to all the other bonus material at the level you choose, of course – bonus art, early access to the pages in the form of WIP’s, world-building material and extra scenes and stories, backstory, etc.!
I may have been working on Tock’s story for 7 years now, but its been only in the last few years that I’ve really started coming at it from a healthy place, one where I am worthy of the support you all give me and the enthusiasm you have about her quest. I am very grateful that so many people have stuck with it even when I’ve been less than my best. Your support and your patience mean the world to me. Nothing fills my heart with Light and Purpose the way that sharing Tock’s world with you does.
So thank you, truly, from the bottom of my heart.
