IMG_20190327_153014_117

Time for another patrons-only world building post, dear readers!

This week we’re looking at how Orcs handle weapons, and how that’s linked to their Clan names (picture featuring Onna, btw, who dual wields axes – including one that looks less than Orcish, but we’ll get to that eventually…. ❤ ).

Full post available here!

Time for another patrons only world building post! This week, we’re switching gears from the Gnomes (steampunk pun absolutely intended) and looking at the Orcs a bit – specifically how an average Orc spends their childhood.

 

Reminders – “Tock the Gnome” is available to read for free both here and on Patreon (where there is much bonus art, story and world-building to boot), so please do check it it out if you haven’t yet! ~ Also, call for artists is still open for “Prints for Pam-a-Lamb.” ~ And prints of my own work, comic books, coloring books and needlefelted OOAK dolls are available anytime on Etsy.

Day 14, “Leader” (also Sunday Gnomedays 10-14-18)

Since this one fell on a Sunday, we get both Orcish and Gnomish goodness! Which inspired me to illustrate two of those current leaders – Queen Adamine of the Gnomes, and Chieftain Keesa of Onna’s as-yet-unnamed tribe (who’s also been featured in the recent pages of the comic!).

Behind Keesa are echoes of other Chieftains, because she’s not the only one – each tribe has it’s own Chieftain, and they are all equal in Orcish society. The Gnomes, as I’ve mentioned before, have a single monarch – currently Queen Adamine, who’s from a long line of other ruling royals. That relic she’s holding is important to her bloodline, buuuuuuut more on that in the future ❤

More on both of them in general, of course, available in the bonus material at Patreon.

Day 15, “Capture”

…..which stumped me at first, but then this hit me very clearly and DEMANDED to be drawn. As far as I can tell, there’s more to this abduction that it seems, and I think that “princess” is going to be just fine.

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

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

World Building Wednesday 7 – Elven Queensguard

20180815_192921.jpg

Belatedly, that is, BUT that and Throwback Thursday all in one, as a result!

This week at Patreon we’re talking about the Elven Queensguard and government, as it was in the time of Misu and Mariatu 🌊💗🌊

This drawing features Reina, the Elven Queen from that time – who is one of the few characters from my pre-Tock work that has survived intact! (She’s on the left, btw.)

Here she is, in older incarnations:

(She looks pretty much the same, as you can see, except that now she gets to be happier! Yay! ……sorry Arella.)

Click here to read the full World Building Wednesday post!

(Also, shoutout to @photos_by_trinityhawk in the last older drawing, since it belongs to him 👍👍 and to my amazing Wife for fixing the ring in the picture and getting me into the show that inspired this drawing in the first place 😍 ).

.Sketch, "Impressions," Tock the Gnome

 

Another Brogh (badger person) as introduced in design work before, but a Honey Badger one this time 😀

This was inspired by Ursula Vernon’s recent Honey Badger work, by the way, which got me thinking that if things were more…..peaceful between the Brogh and the Orcs, that Orcs would be quite impressed by Honey Badger warriors in particular.

Mind you, she’s not disturbed by the bloody organ in front of her. She eats those for breakfast. She is just put off by having said offering right in her face, in the hands of a potential enemy, no less.
