And here we have it. But is that better, or worse, for poor Onna?

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!

A note about design changes:

As they appear on some previous pages, the Orcs’ dwellings were at first completely culturally appropriated from Mongolian culture. I was not as socially aware when I started this part of the story as I am now, and I am truly sorry for having done this. I have since redesigned the Orcs’ tents and will be reposting these pages with updated panels as soon as possible.

In the meantime, the artwork for those updated panels is viewable here.

Design process for the new tents is viewable here, here and here.

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.)

So much hurt, on both sides :/

(Shameless bonus promotion – those of you who are Patrons should be able to figure out most of what’s being said here with the Orcish Language Guide! There are some new words in here, which will be updated in part 2 of the Guide when there’s enough of them. But if you’re curious, most of this page and all the pages before it is/are decipherable through the first part!)

Thanks for your patience with this page too -if the slow updates bother you, keep in mind that we’re getting closer to my first goal here on Patreon, $50 monthly, which means I would guarantee a new page each month!! So if you’re not pledging yet but enjoy reading Tock’s story, please do consider signing up! Especially if the waiting is a bother ^^;

In the meantime, I hope you’ve been enjoying Gnomevember and look forward to the holiday bonus drawing! (Patrons will be getting a little something extra special this year, btw ❤ )

And don’t forget about my Shop Small Sale going on, now through Cyber Monday! Patrons-only bonus discount available here.

NOTE: There are some errors in the text of panel 5, from scanning, that I didn’t catch before. I will have those fixed up later today.

UPDATE: Panel 5 is fixed!

Which got me thinking about Onna, and what she thinks she “should” have been 🤫

(Today’s/Sunday Gnomedays coming later, with prompt “Leader”….)

Orctober, days 11 and 12

A bit more catchup, and a bit on time!

Eleven, “Look”

As I’ve mentioned before, the Orcs trade regularly with the Gnomes (who travel to their territory for that purpose, in airships – like Bumble’s family does). So this lady appears to be considering these binoculars they brought to her tribe on a recent trip.

(Specifically inspired by a pair of power binoculars from the 19th century, found on pimall.com)

Twelve, “Message”

I imagine these two are siblings, one carrying a message to the other from someone they fancy 😍 Also, I starkly realized in drawing this one that the viking deliciousness that inspired Tock-world Orc culture comes with lots of gender-stratification…..which I knew about, of course, but hadn’t applied too much to their clothing, yet. Look out for more world building on that soon!
