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

Today, continuing with Orcish celebration, we are looking at how the Orcs use their written language – what is not recorded that way vs. what is.

Orctober catchup / Promo – WBW 61

In this week’s patrons-only world building post,  we’re looking at the other side of Orcish warfare – war creates wounds, both psychological and physical, and that means intense healing!

~** Full post available here **~

Aaaaand as for the catchup:

The 6th / Sunday Gnomedays 10-6-19 – Tock and Onna Tock and Onna Tock and Onna ❤

The 7th – Just needed a quick self-care Orc with butterflies.

The 8th –  Not sure where this one came from, but I feel like it has a story – perhaps this Orcish maiden may have been considering taking this Dragon’s egg home for a meal, but the butterfly landing on her finger gave her pause? 🦋 (Dragons are absolutely friends, not food, in Tock’s world btw, and the Orcs and all the other races – except the Gnomes – would be familiar with them from a distance. More on that in the future…)

Welcome to another patrons-only world building post, dear readers – and once again,

h a p p y  O r c t o b e r !!! ❤

As the above sprig of lavender may imply, we’re looking a little bit more at an aspect of Orcish life that I’ve mentioned before – hunting and gathering.

Bonus art – Snow

snow_wm

As noted before – while I’m working on correcting the Orcish tent issue on previous pages (which takes a lot of tracing/redrawing work I can’t just sit down and do without setting up a specific work station), I’ve been using my daily Tock Time* to finish up some bonus illustrations – which will be available as prints, in interest of my upcoming presence at Gears to Corsets, September 27th to 29th!

So here’s the third of those, featuring a piece I’d previously done as a pencil drawing for Gnomevember. Still a random Gnome noblewoman, taking it upon herself to experience snow for the first time.

Available as a 4×6 inch print!! Click here!

*For those of you who don’t know, because of my busy schedule, daily “Tock Time” means at least 15 minutes a day working on the newest page of the comic. Since I work traditionally, this usually means just sitting down with pencils pen and paper and physically creating each page. However, things have been different lately, due to the reasons listed above.


WIP preview – the Orcish tent correction, page 74

So this has been going on ❤

I’ve talked a lot more about these edits (and shown more WIP shots) on Patreon, but even though I haven’t said much here, I assure you that progress has been happening. It doesn’t feel right, to me, to push forward on new pages until I’ve corrected the existing ones. So rest assured that even though it may seem like we’ve stalled out on Tock’s story, we are indeed still moving forward – and I absolutely haven’t given up yet!

See more WIP on this page here!

Thank you for your patience, dear readers 🎩

Time for another patrons-only world building post, dear readers! 
I apologize for this one being late, I was travelling to visit family and got some sad news about a dear friend, and didn’t have the energy to get it posted on time. Thank you for your patience – here it is now, short and (bitter)sweet, and and establishes something you might have already guessed…

Today, we’re taking another look at what I’ve called “The Chances,” inspired by this quote from The Sidhe: Wisdom from the Celtic Otherworld, by John Matthews
