Status update: 1/13

Hi again. Sorry that this is a fair bit later than I was planning, but things have been rather messy this past week or so; and not just because of the weather (a lot of snow here right now) – though that is definitely not helping. I just sent out Patreon rewards – including the significantly expanded mini-set from last month; which ended up being 21 images (including one x-ray alternate and two unused renders) – over double the original (almost triple)! I rather liked this one and had fun with it – (I may also revisit this scenario/concept in the future…) it was hard to stop it where I did; even if the advanced lighting made renders take twice as long as usual – hence the longer time to get all this done. I do really need to stop adding so much to these mini-sets… they are supposed to be 4-5 images and somehow end up being in the double digits fairly regularly now; that or I need to reset the mini-set list sooner than six months or something to balance out the extra content – we will see. This was probably also once of the most visually complex image sets that I have done so far (hard lighting, reflections, etc) – and I think it looks really nice. πŸ˜€

As things stand now, I am not sure what major work I will be able to put forward on the new game this month; I have a lot left to do to get the voice work all situated – even after the auditions end on Monday. (Finalizing stuff with the actresses, writing/checking the scripts, sending those and then waiting for the voice work to get done… and then I have to cut/label it all and actually implement a lot of it into my previous game.) So I will likely focus on that this month, while doing a bit of the event writing for the new game if I can; and try to work in the (relevant) new voice work into SST if it gets done (and I can cut/process all of it) relatively soon – as I would hope it would.

So I plan to be back late this week sometime (like Thursday or Friday at the earliest I would think) with the new mini-set preview for this month; and we will see what else happens between then and now… as I am working on a few other side things still. πŸ™‚

Another new year, more new polls!

Hey guys. I am back with the first post of the new year; I hope everyone had a nice time over the holiday(s). Just as a quick recap in case anyone missed my last post – the “World Info/Lore” page is now available up top with some additional information on assorted places/groups featured in my work. So definitely check that out if you are interested and have not done so already. πŸ˜€ In other news, I still have my various voice auditions to manage for another two weeks or so; but I hope to try and restart work on my new game this month – despite me likely having limited time to do much, given everything else that I already have to do. (Having my previous voice actress quit really threw a wrench in my plans, but I somehow got the auditions up quick and am set to have this fixed fairly soon… or at least have the actresses decided- I then of course have to actually write/order the actual voice bits.

Anyways – in regard to last month’s polls; there were three, though once again one got far more votes than the other two… I am not sure if this is simply because it was on top, or if someone stuffed it, or if people just felt strongly about it – but whatever. The top poll asked about breast size preferences… and “Realistic/Average” got a large chunk of votes – with “Large” in second place with around half as many… and then “Huge” after that with two, and assorted single votes for almost all the rest. Ironically, this was already somewhat my plan anyway; as two of the three new female characters I am waiting to introduce into the main story (this probably will not happen for a while – it is several chapters off for these two in particular) likely fit this description… well one for sure, the other may be more of a “Above Average” – I am not entirely sure. I will also consider this for the third girl who is not finalized yet… and we will see what happens. (Faye and this one not yet introduced character were supposed to represent the extremes in terms of breast size.) The second poll asked how you feel about established characters changing hairstyles, at least temporarily; and this was almost a complete four-way tie. The best I can take away from this is that most people seem to be fairly ok with it; as the “Stay the same” option was the one with one less vote – so I will consider this. The last poll got a disappointing amount of votes for whatever reason; but I thank those who did vote in it. (I kind of expected this… which is why it was just a fun poll and not a special one.) For this one, the top two answers were “A titjob from Zayla” and “A pussy creampie from Salune”… with one vote for “Giving Karen a creampie” – so it is clear what/who some people prefer. πŸ™‚

As for the new polls, there are three – as per usual recently. (Please vote in all three.) The first one asks which of my main female characters so far is your favorite (for whatever reason), and please pick three. The second poll asks if you prefer animations with or without voice/sound. Finally, the third poll asks what you think of the new “World Info/Lore” page. πŸ˜€ Anyways, I will be back in a week or so with some sort of status update around the time I send out Patreon rewards – so I will talk to you again then!

World Info/Lore page finally done; also another game preview.

Hi again everyone. I am back with the last post of this year; as you can tell from the title and probably see for yourselves, I have finally finished and posted the “World Info/Lore” page that is now available up top!

This page has a bunch of background information about assorted places and groups that are in my assorted works… that currently totals to around 7400 words, counting all sections. I know there are a at least few people out there that will be interested in this… and hopefully there aren’t too many grammatical errors and such in it; I am far too tired to read it all over again. (I will check it over again in a week or two.) I had to cut a few sections off a little early as it was getting close to the end of the year; but this should be fine for now – as many of the other places mentioned will not really be actively used for quite a while. (I really wanted to finally get this done this year, and I finally had the chance.) I may also add to and/or expand this a bit later… but we will see what happens and/or when.

Anyways, the new public preview for the game I will resume working on next month is below; this was available to my Patrons a month or two ago – as is one or two other previews that you all have not seen yet. (One is animated.) If anyone actually wants to play my previous games and see the other chapters of LITC, or possibly the current mini-sets and more… (old mini-sets available through oronjo via the link up top) consider supporting me on my Patreon page! https://www.patreon.com/redleatherart

Happy New Year and all that; I will be back with new polls and the old poll results in a few days.

New DA stuff posted, other voice audition also posted!

Hey again. Just a quick update – as the title suggests, I have just posted some new content into my DA gallery; so definitely check that out. (Two images are brand new!) I also posted that other audition I mentioned in hopes of finding some voice actresses yesterday, and it is here: https://www.castingcall.club/projects/assorted-adult-content. It is effectively the same as the other audition that I posted last week, just allegedly this site gets more traffic – and so hopefully I will get more interest. (I already have more auditions here than on the old one – after only one day as compared to a week and a half…)

If you are visiting my site from one of the two auditions – Hi there! πŸ˜€ Please check out my assorted characters on the “Characters” page up top – as well as the recent previews of my work. There are also the previews and demo from my last game up in the “Game preview gallery” page – as well as the many story sets I have freely available that are all in the “Freely released image sets” tab up there. πŸ™‚ (If you are looking for something specific, you can find specific types/character’s content by using the ‘tags’ on each post.)

So anyway, please vote in the polls on the right if you haven’t yet – and I want to wish all of you Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas and all that; and I should be back with some sort of status update before the end of the year. (I am also still trying to finally get this Lore page totally situated before the new year, but I have had so much to do up through tonight – we will see what happens next week.)

December mini-set preview now available!

Hi again! Sorry this is a few days later than I was planning, but I ended up just waiting to post the new DA stuff until the mini-set preview was done so that I could post that too. (Also I’m still trying to fix one thing in the second new DA image – I have not had much luck so far; I may have to make something else if I cannot fix this tonight.) So whenever I can get this other DA image situated, (probably tomorrow) I will post this all to DA. In other news, I am planning to post an additional voice acting audition on another site as the first one has not gotten much interest so far… (plenty of time left though) but I will likely post an update about that tomorrow or possibly a bit later – when I either post the new audition or the DA stuff… maybe both.

Anyways – the sexy new preview of this very special mini-set is below; the subject of which was voted on by my mid-level patrons. The mini-set for December stars both James and Belle the Xmas elf – as seen in a few images on my DA page. (Surprisingly this was one of the two options that tied for first place in the poll, so I had to break the tie – and I chose this one as it is hard to involve the main male characters in these mini-sets.) This is Belle’s first mini-set… so I wanted to make it really nice and special; and I believe I have done that.Β (I may add her to the characters page now – even though she is just a seasonal side OC.) I had a lot of fun working on this mini-set, (probably too much) and I will almost certainly expand it even further from it’s currently planned eight images. (I am still rendering the last few, but I really do want to add a little more – or put in some alternate angles or something.) Whatever this ends up being in total, it will go out to appropriate patrons starting with next month’s rewards message. (EDIT: This mini-set ended up being 21 images.)

The story for this mini-set is that Belle is making her last stop of the night, bringing gifts to all the good people who have been kind and generous this year; when she realizes that she is one present short – she has no gifts left! Belle enters the small cottage anyway… only to find a handsome man waiting for her with a big smile and her favorite – milk and cookies! Belle couldn’t even remember the last time someone had actually thought of her on Xmas… she was so touched and happy. It was so awkward that she had no presents left to give him; but she knew one way to really make it up to James – and show him how much she loved it when people thought of others (especially her) at the same time. πŸ™‚ A long night of passionate sex ensues – and Belle had better be careful; or she might be the one who leaves with a present tonight! πŸ˜€

So, as per always – if any kind/awesome people out there would like to support me and/or my work on all sorts of cool new content; (like the new slave training game I have posted previews of recently) and/or perhaps even get access to several of these mini-sets and/or lots of other rewards too, like the larger versions of the completed animations I have made/posted and/or the full games I have also made (and am currently working on) – check out my Patreon page: https://www.patreon.com/redleatherart

Status update: 12/13 – Voice actress audition posted!

Hey again everyone. I’m back with a status update for all of you; the most important part of which you can guess from the title of this post. Other stuff first though; I just sent out Patreon rewards a short while ago – the mini-set for last month ended up at 11 images, by the way. As for current plans, I hope to finish the new DA images in a few days and post those and then move on to the new mini-set as soon as that poll is finished early next week. After that we will see if I have time to work on new game content or what happens, but I was planning to take the last week of the month off due to the holidays and everything. (I am close to finishing one other new written bit for the site… we will see if I can get that totally done soon – I keep adding to it and forgetting to finish it.) Do vote in the polls on the right here if you haven’t already! πŸ™‚

Anyway – I am sure you all noticed the title of the post; and I have gone ahead and started up an audition to try and find some new voice actresses! (I decided to use what time I had this past week to set up that voice acting audition and get all that sorted out to hopefully get that done sooner; as I have to leave it up for a month or so.) I have no idea how I got myself back together enough after that mess early this month to just go right back into this voice business again, but somehow I did. So, if by some chance you happen to be a voice actress (professional or aspiring) that does adult content… then perhaps you might be interested in maybe voicing one of my characters! So check out the audition listed below! (All of my female characters that are not currently taken are up for auditions right now – including the slave characters in the new game.)

If you are checking out my page from the audition, welcome! πŸ˜€ There are several pages listed up top with many preview galleries and other free content – as well as my characters page. (My entire first story arc, Road to Lithorca is available free; along with many other special image sets and the first chapter of Life in the City.)

http://voiceacting.boards.net/thread/2951/voice-actresses-assorted-adult-content

I am really hoping that something good will come of this; but worst case, I just waste even more of my time. However, I was told a long while ago (by someone that had good voice actresses) that this forum was the place to go to get voice actresses for adult content… so I really, really hope things work out this time – as contacting several directly has mostly not gone well at all. (That last mess just drained me – but as I mentioned, I may as well get this audition started now; the sooner it starts, the sooner it ends.) I have no idea what will happen of course, but things seem promising so far. (At the very least, it cannot possibly go worse than last time; because I am not letting it get anywhere close to that level again.) Depending on what I can get, I may or may not adjust some future content (animations, games) to fit what voices I may have. Absolute worst case – I am stuck with only what i already have and I then have to figure something else out… but I have a feeling that I will get something from this at the minimum.

December polls, and some bad news.

Hi again. I am back with the first post of the month – which has the usual new poll info and the previous poll results. (And some very recent bad news – I was ready to post the new polls last night until that second bomb dropped and pushed this back into today.)

Last month, there were three polls – the first asked how dark you prefer your adult content; and unsurprisingly most people leaned towards the dark end of the spectrum offered. Nobody said they preferred cuddly content, but there were a few scattered votes for semi-consensual and lighter options; and those will still be done from time to time. However, it should be rather obvious at this stage that I tend to work somewhere within the mid-dark area here; so the S/M sexual slavery option, leaning a bit on either end of it at times. (Most people voted for that, so that is good.) The second poll asked how you all feel about micro adult games – and most of you say it totally depends; with a few votes in favor… and none explicitly against. I will keep this in mind – I have a few ideas regarding this that I hope to work on next year sometime… if I can get the time/interest to warrant it. The last poll asked if I should make a demo of this new game, and all votes were for yes; though there were only a third as many votes here as the top poll for some reason – so I am not quite sure how to take that. (I will see about this later.)

There are also the new polls – there are three again. The first is a returning old poll which asks about your breast size preference in adult content. The second asks how you feel about established characters changing hairstyles – likely not permanently, but at least temporarily. And the last poll is just a fun poll asking which of the options given would be your ideal christmas present. (I wanted to do another special poll this month, but almost nobody voted in the last one; so I am not going to bother.) Preferably vote in those and let me know what you think about all that.

In addition to those polls, there is also a mini-set poll for my mid-level patrons up on my Patreon page – to decide the contents of this month’s mini-set; which will be open for another two weeks (until the 18th) if anyone is interested.

As for the bad news… that is twofold. First, I am sure most of you have already heard about tumblr’s upcoming policy change banning porn as of December 17th; which is all kinds of upsetting. However, when blogger (google) announced something similar in the past, they went back on it (rather quickly too) – so we will see if this actually comes to pass. (If google backed off, I can’t imagine tumblr will actually do it; that would be akin to sinking their own ship – as porn is mostly what tumblr is used for from what I know.) Worst case, I have my site here already; this is of course much more damaging for people who only have/use tumblr – but it is disappointing none the less.

Second, I was just told last night around 8 PM that the voice work I arranged for back in August – and have been waiting almost five months for… is no longer going to be done; as the voice actress apparently has better things to do all of a sudden – and no longer wants to bother with my project(s). I am not going to get into how completely unprofessional and downright cruel this is to do to someone after agreeing to do it and making them wait for almost five months; and I suppose it is partly my fault for being so nice – and constantly waiting and putting up with excuses… but this is still all kinds of disappointing/depressing. (This is why I try to do everything myself; I only get outside assistance when absolutely necessary.) I have already not been having a great time recently (due to assorted factors); and my motivation for all this was already really low – this was a shotgun blast to the back that I did not need at all. Of course I attempted to contact her again to try and get her to reconsider, but a full day later I have not gotten any response whatsoever; so things are likely going to stay as they are now. (I do not think that I can trust her anymore anyway after this – even if she does change her mind; but it was worth a try.)

I already had talks with another voice actress fall through last month; which was bad enough – but this really screws me quite a bit. Of course, the voice work was far from critical – and I will have to look into finding a replacement soon enough; but this is still shocking to just have happen all of a sudden when I had no doubts before now… as far as I knew, everything was fine. Sorry to disappoint some/all of you in the short term; but I promise none of you feel as bad about this as I do – with me having written probably over a hundred emails and wasted countless hours (probably days) composing those as well as various scripts (and checking voice tests) over the past several months.

I don’t know what I will be able to get done these next few days anymore – I feel genuinely sick right now for all sorts of reasons and I justΒ  cannot do anything useful at the moment… I will see how things are in another day or two. I will do the best that I can, but things are not going well at all right now; and this new development is almost certainly going to affect things. Despite progress on this new game being way behind what I was hoping for, I was still confident in all this until last night when I read that email. I hope to be back next week or so with some other update or something… I do not know what/when exactly.

Final early slave preview – human slave girl!

Hey again. I am back once more with the final public public post of the base slave previews for the new game – this time it is the human slave girl. As you can see from the preview below, she is a bit more lithe and muscular than what I usually go with – just to mix things up a bit. She also has a smaller breast size, similar to the elf slave girl; and will be the more resistant/insubordinate of the three slave types. (The half-elf will be more innocent/scared, and the elf will be more experienced/enthusiastic.) So some of her exclusive training bits will get a bit rough; as Zayla does not tolerate disobedient slaves… πŸ˜€

As far as the game goes, I am still working on assembling what I have now; I am having a few minor issues with the second animation – but mostly due to the time it takes to make/render them. I have also had to take a bit of time to do some real life things this past week – but that is just how things are around holidays. We will see what I have together by the time rewards go out in a week or two; I will do the best I can… but I am rather drained creatively right now from all the writing/coding/rendering – plus there are other assorted complicating factors, such as low interest, etc. Essentially, this should be great whenever I can get the whole thing done, but I only have like a third or less of the event scenes ready right now and some are not fully written/coded yet. (Still trying to get the other animation for the scene sets I have done perfected also… but I did post another event preview for my Patrons though.) Plus I need to put the various bits I have together and work out all the kinks there as well… we will just have to see what happens and/or when. (As I mentioned before, I may get new voice bits anytime; and if that happens I plan to stop and deal with that first – and possibly update the old game before returning to the new one.) I should be back in a couple days with the poll review and some new polls at the least – so check back for that.

So… if you want to help support my work, and get access to a bunch more content that I have made, (including the previous game) check out my Patreon page! (Any support/interest helps – even comments/votes; it is rather hard to keep doing all this work when almost nobody seems to appreciate it or care at all…) https://www.patreon.com/redleatherart

November Patreon mini-set preview here!

Hi again everyone. I hope you had a nice Thanksgiving/Black Friday and everything; and I hope my free release of LITC one early this week helped that somewhat. πŸ˜€

As for what is new right now – below is the public preview of the new mini-set for my mid-level patrons this month; which features Karen this time around. The story/setup for this mini-set is as follows: Karen is invited by a reclusive nobleman to a private masquerade party; but she arrives to find herself the only woman there… and the only one wearing clothes! However, it is rather obvious why she was invited, and even more obvious what is expected of one of the most popular courtesans in Lithorca… and she needs little encouragement to ‘entertain’ the other party guests. Assorted fun occurs in what is currently eight images – but that may go up as per usual; the mini-set for last month ended up with 12 images – double the original count… so who knows what might happen.

In other news, I am making slow progress on the game content and such; I took a day off from making new stuff yesterday and just had octane render one of the alternate versions of the animation I made the other week. (Those take quite a while to render; especially when I need to do each one three times.) As per always, I will do what I can – and we will see what I can get together by the time rewards go out next month; but I do not want to make any promises at this stage. (If I get the voice work I ordered within the next week or two, I may just drop what I am currently working on and process all of that; and then work in a bunch of it into the previous game and update that first – but that is a big if that is out of my control.) There will also be a patreon mini-set poll for my mid-level patrons next month to decide part of the December mini-set; if anyone is interested. Also, please vote in the polls on the right if you have not done so already – and I will try to be back with a status update next week. πŸ™‚

As I usually conclude these with – if any kind people out there would like to support me and/or my work on all sorts of cool new content; (like the new slave training game I have posted previews of recently) and/or perhaps even get access to several of these mini-sets and/or lots of other rewards too, like the larger versions of the completed animations I have made/posted and/or the full games I have also made (and am currently working on) – check out my Patreon page: https://www.patreon.com/redleatherart

LITC chapter one, “Matt is Missing” free release, status update!

Hey again everybody. First, the status update… as I know why most of you are reading this. πŸ™‚ So I sent out a gif preview of the new animation that I am refining for the new game to my Patrons last Saturday night – and from a construction standpoint it is the longest that I have made so far, and it is of the oral/service type. (100 frames, but that isn’t actually that much time wise – except I assemble these manually…) It features the one slave girl that you all have not yet seen; the human slave girl… I went with a more lithe and muscular body type for her – which I have not really tried yet… so we will see if/how people like it. (I wanted a good mix represented by the three slave girls – and I think that is what I have.) I hope to get the mini-set preview for this month posted later this week as well, but I wanted to post this now.

So…. in regard to the main content of this post; it is finally time to freely release LITC chapter one! LITC 1 starts the new story arc with a “double-issue” as I originally tried to do with RTL – so there are two little side stories happening at the same time in here. The first story revolves around James ‘meeting’ the temporary guildmistress of the adventurer’s guild (Faye); and the other has Tabitha meeting one of the most famous courtesans in Lithorca – Karen. This is 52 images of all sorts of fun, check the tags for more specifics; and as always each image has a clean and a story version.

I do not know when I will freely release the other chapters of LITC; if things were better, I could just give everything out when it is made. (Maybe someday things will get to that point.) I also have not worked on a new story set in several months as I have been working on other things. My available time right now is totally taken up by working on the new game; and I may have two other considerable side projects to do very soon if my attempts at acquiring more voice work pan out in the near future. (I have to check/prepare it all and hopefully work some into the previous game as well as this new one.) There will be a Patreon mini-set poll next month, for anyone interested in that… I am not certain of anything else next month at this stage – as per always, I will do the best I can. (I am doing 4-5 people’s worth of work for this game – so it is taking longer than I was originally thinking; especially because I wanted to make the three slave character’s scenes different in regard to the dialogue, not just the event scene… but so far things seem really good.)

Below are the original LITC 1 previews, re-posted for convenience; (two clean, two story) and after the “continue reading” break areas under those is the download link (the password is still “redleatherart”) – so if you want to see more of this new story arc, (it currently goes up to chapter five) or if you just want to help support me and my assorted works, please check my Patreon page! (Also happy early Thanksgiving.) πŸ˜€
