issue2_promo_done

Announcing preorder availability for “Tock the Gnome: The Rescue Quest” printed issue 2!!

As with issue 1, this second issue will feature existing pages of the comic (pages 25 to 57, a total of 33 pages) with new cover art and written, illustrated bonus scenes that will not be available anywhere else.

Ever wonder what Tock and Bumble’s first couple of days cohabitating on the Bucket were like?

How about the life and fate of the bird that attacked them?

And what about the argument Onna was recalling before she ambushed them?

Answers to those questions, with exclusive art, will be available in this issue!

~~~

All preorders will be available at a discounted rate – $8 instead of $10 – and come with an exclusive, personalized sketch inside the cover. Available now through May 1st, with issues shipping by May 5th!

Looks like Tock has figured something out – can you guess what it is? 🙂

(Shameless bonus promotion – those of you who are Patrons should be able to figure out some of what’s being said here with the Orcish Language Guide! There are quite a few new words in here, which will be updated in part 2 of the Guide soon.)

Thanks for your patience with updates, 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 me on Patreon yet, but enjoy reading Tock’s story, please do consider signing up!

One new page for JuneFae after all!!
Getting back to understandable dialogue too – it looks like the Orcish Language Guide will be a July thing, after all, so Onna will be our guide in the meantime ;p
Also, as for those angry red eyes in panel two – this was supposed to have shown up before, but the scan doesn’t show it very well (even after photoshopping it, for some reason). Still, if you please, take a look again and keep that in mind for current events…
Thank you, dear readers, for your patience. Hope you enjoy ❤

Happy MerMay! (and patreon peek)

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!

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.

Well, someone’s had enough of this conversation she can’t understand.

Also – backgrounds, wooo! After so many pages of very little background, this was a challenge and I’m quite pleased with how it turned out. Between that and the rush of action in the first 4 panels (and those being so tightly packed together) I really wanted this page to snap us right back into the reality of what’s going on – i.e. the very real, potential danger for all three of our heroes. We’ve gotten to focus on just the mystery of Onna’s situation a bit for the last few pages, but there is a lot more going on than her reluctance and Tock’s curiosity.

Also also please, if you’re interested in me posting a translation guide for the Orcish, raise your hand!
