Orctober catchup – days 8, 9 and 10

More catching up to do! For the record, I have been pretty much keeping up posting these on time on my Instagram, but it’s less easy to keep up on posting these across ALL the places I post (here, Patreon, dA, etc.). So for more-live updates, I recommend  following me there, too.

That said, here we are with the most recent three!

Eight, “Friend”

Which inspired me to draw more about the Hogdragons that the Orcs use for travel – and companionship, in some cases.

(Look closely and there’s some backstory in this one!)

Nine, “Tusk”

Which got me thinking about the connection between their tusks and the bones they use in their jewelry.

And then jewelry on their tusks.

So here we are.

(…who does and does not have nose rings is important too, btw. We will get to that eventually.)

Ten, “Move”

As I mentioned before, the Orcs are nomads, and they use the hogdragons for travel from foraging-place to foraging-place (also to carry them into war, but that’s another matter). Since they also live in yurts, they often send some of the tribe ahead to start setting up camp while the rest of them take their time to get there. And apparently some of the younger tribesfolk take the opportunity to race!

More soon ❤ (And of course, more on the Orcs of Tock’s world available in the comic!)
