World Building Wednesday 10 – Orcish Site Blessing

20180904_162423.jpg

Belatedly, but here we are! (And I hope you enjoyed yesterday’s placeholder bonus drawing.)

Anyway, time for another patrons-only World Building post! This week, we’re looking at the Orcs 😀 Specially, a little bit about their territory, a very little bit about their religion, and what happens when they settle in a new area for a while.

Click here to see the full post! (And many many other patron-only extras.)

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 ❤

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).

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!

And onward!

Fun note for the future – I’m working on a very short written scene that shows what has been/will be happening inside that big yurt as Onna, Tock and Bumble wait outside. That will be available ONLY on Patreon, so make sure to check that out and pledge there if you want to see it! I’ll likely be posting that with the next page.

Ding ding!

Thank you, readers, for your patience. This one took quite some time but I think it was well worth it.

(A key to match up each tribe member between their representation here and on the previous page is also up on Patreon! )
