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.

Thanks for reading, everyone!

Sketch – Three Women

Slight “Rescue Quest” Spoilers follow!

Sketch, "Three Women," pencil and ink, "Tock the Gnome"

Chibi-style sketch of three ladies from Tock’s world – a Gnome in the middle (of course), an Orc to her left and a Brogh to her right.

The Brogh haven’t been introduced yet, as they’re another race of the Lowlands that the Gnomes don’t know much about – even less than they know about Orcs, in fact – but as you can see here, they’re a race of badger people. They also have a lot of magic, and a very strong connection to nature. This will be very important eventually.

Sketch – Quiet moment

"Quiet moment" Tock the Gnome, sketch

Another little something in the meantime.

The as-not-yet-identified Orc lady Tock and Bumble have just encountered, looking peaceful….but really more of an excuse for me to draw her hair 😀

More finalized work will be coming once I can focus on pages again, so hopefully soon. I’ve also been doing some character development in-between commission work lately, world-building, and brainstorming plans for the first published book. So even though I haven’t been able to post much or update the comic itself, things are still in the works, and thanks to all of you who are still keeping an eye out here!
