I did the thing!!!
Day 31, “Magic”
Chosen specifically for the magicy magical day of Halloween!
These Orcs, by the way, do not have magic in Tock’s time – so I imagine the feeling of it would be quite a jarring.
Bonus – “The Orcs Unite Us”
Collaboration with the amazing basileonardo, who was kind enough to ask me to draw with him (go check out his page, his Orcs are amazing!) 💕
And that makes a COMPLETE challenge!! Congrats to everyone who participated.
Thank you to everyone who stuck with me this month, and welcome to any new followers from it!
I hope you all stay with me and look forward to what comes next 🤗
(…….Gnomevember, that is!)
Day 29, “Skull”
(Almost drew her making a kissy-face at it, but I think this came out even better.)
Day 30, “Rest”
Featuring Onna and Tock once again (though I’m sure they’ll get plenty of attention during Gnomevember 💕). Felt like this was a good lead up to the coming Gnome-focused challenge – and those of you following the comic will hopefully appreciate this moment of schmoop ….since they’re taking their time to get there ^^;
One day more!!!
Commitment to Faerie. Commitment to life. Committment to oneself ❤
Needed something more positive and peaceful for this one, even if there must be a bit of violent seriousness.
(Posting from my phone, so no handy links, buuuut instead enjoy this preview of my freshly carved Samhain pumpkin!)
(…..Orctober is the best 😀 )
Day 14, “Leader” (also Sunday Gnomedays 10-14-18)
Since this one fell on a Sunday, we get both Orcish and Gnomish goodness! Which inspired me to illustrate two of those current leaders – Queen Adamine of the Gnomes, and Chieftain Keesa of Onna’s as-yet-unnamed tribe (who’s also been featured in the recent pages of the comic!).
Behind Keesa are echoes of other Chieftains, because she’s not the only one – each tribe has it’s own Chieftain, and they are all equal in Orcish society. The Gnomes, as I’ve mentioned before, have a single monarch – currently Queen Adamine, who’s from a long line of other ruling royals. That relic she’s holding is important to her bloodline, buuuuuuut more on that in the future ❤
More on both of them in general, of course, available in the bonus material at Patreon.
Day 15, “Capture”
…..which stumped me at first, but then this hit me very clearly and DEMANDED to be drawn. As far as I can tell, there’s more to this abduction that it seems, and I think that “princess” is going to be just fine.
Which got me thinking about Onna, and what she thinks she “should” have been 🤫
(Today’s/Sunday Gnomedays coming later, with prompt “Leader”….)
In all the Orctober rush, I missed this week’s World Building Wednesday! Since it focused on a bit more of their nomadic culture, though, the Orctober post that fell on that day DOES count!
So for this week, let’s take a closer at the Orcish mounts, the Hogdragons.
(And more Orctober List catching-up will come later. There was a bit of a snafu with yesterday’s prompt.)
