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!


Happy MerMay! (and patreon peek)

mermay2018_misuandmariatu

Happy beginning of MerMay everyone!

(This is also a “Tock the Gnome” patreon bonus – that Elven lady in the middle of an intense Mermaid hug is Mariatu. Surrounding her is her Wife, Misu. They are an important part of the backstory of Tock’s world and there are many bonus pieces relating to them and mermaid/elf culture there. See more here.)

This is also especially dedicated to my own Mer-Llady Wife 🐚💗🦈

Good luck to all of us participating!

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!


Exclusive print special, 6 days left!

Hello dear readers! Just a reminder – only one more week left to get this exclusive print – only available to patrons, and only until May 1st!

Pledge any amount at patreon to grab yours today

 


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.
