Status updates go here.

Status update: 4/18 – Surgery.

Hey again. I just wanted to check in and let you guys know that apparently the thing I was going to the doctor(s) for was worse than I (or the previous doctor) thought, and back on Monday they pretty much immediately scheduled me for surgery on my leg on Wednesday. Allegedly things went fine, but I am not supposed to sit or stand for extended periods for a while; and I need to get up and walk around as much as possible, every hour at least. (So I can’t really sit and work on this stuff right now.)

So… I am not sure when I will have the new mini-set preview ready by at this point – this effectively pushes everything back a fair bit; but this was/is quite necessary and there is nothing I can do about it. I go back in a week for a follow-up and assuming there are no complications, I may be able to get back to serious work around then; but I have no way to be sure.

SST 1.18 ‘final’ and a status update.

Hi. So I just sent out rewards to my patreon patrons, including SST 1.17 – the ‘final’ version for the foreseeable future, barring any bugs or something. (EDIT: there was one major sound bug in 1.17, which I have since fixed – so SST was updated to 1.18; it figures that I would find a problem after posting about the ‘final’ version…) I worked in the remaining Salune voice bits that I could/wanted to – and that means this is effectively all I am going to add to SST right now. I have been working on the new game when I can, but I have had assorted real life things to do recently – including several unplanned doctor visits, with more to come. I will see what I can get done this month with all the distractions… and hope this does not require much more to get fixed in some capacity. That is available via my Patreon page (along with a bunch of other stuff) if anyone is interested…

The mini-set from last month also ended up at basically 15 images – and was fun to do; even if I had  to re-render much of it due to a slight issue I only noticed after it was mostly done.

As for upcoming stuff, I hope to make a special ‘short story’ mini-set this month, as I mentioned previously; and I am going to take the next two days to recharge a bit to try and get enough creative juice back to do that. I also plan to post new DA stuff sometime later this month… but we will see when that gets done.

Other side note – I am attempting to list/post all sorts of things on other sites to try and get more views, etc… I have linked my Redbubble shop up top there, with a couple test renders for some merch (prints and such) if anyone is interested. (They are four of the VHQ renders from my DA page – but I will add more if there is interest in that.) I will see when I can get around to listing some of my old stuff on gumroad… and whatever else I can find – but I have a lot to do this month already.

Anyway – more votes in the polls on the right would be appreciated, and I will be back

Public animation preview for the new game.

Hi again. I am currently trying to finish the render for another event preview for my patrons – which will hopefully get posted either late tonight or tomorrow; but while that goes, I wanted to post something here for everyone else. Below is an early gif preview from a full size preview that I sent out to all my patrons late last year. (Slightly before the voice acting mess; which I am still trying to fully resolve.)

In terms of what I am doing now – I have had a couple other commissions to do… (one was private) and may have another commission to share in the coming days; (there are still two days left for my commission sale if anyone is interested… check previous posts for more info) and I am trying to get back into the assorted code/writing for this game… but it is surprisingly hard to try and resume this – the writing in particular is very draining. I will do what I can – but I seem to be focusing on doing more of the event scene renders right now… which do also need done. (There are also other non-explicit/content scenes/renders that I want to put in – so those need done at some point as well.) I am sure this will work out for the best somehow… this is already long past what I was unrealistically and optimistically hoping for late last year – though that was under the assumption that there would be less content and that the characters would all have the same written events… which I decided against. So me expanding my plans for this game combined with the voice acting mess pushed this all back a bit… but things seem to be mostly working out now. I am planning/hoping to get another semi-special mini-set done next month, with another short story bit… but we will see if I can actually do that after working on the assorted game-related stuff up to that point. I also am planning to work in the remaining voice bits into SST next week and send that out to my patrons a little while later; as I think I have all the Salune voice bits now. (I likely will not be able to work in additional voice bits for the other random females as the other actress I was planning to use has not been able to do it and I do not want to waste any more time adding to SST at this point – I mainly wanted to get voice bits in for Salune.)

So after the “continue reading” tag below is the gif preview; featuring the human slave girl servicing that one dark skinned human slave guy that Zayla has. As I think I mentioned previously… I am currently planning to have at least one animated scene per activity/training type. If anyone out there wants to help support me in making my assorted work (including this new game) check out my Patreon page!: https://www.patreon.com/redleatherart

Anything put forward helps – even comments and votes in the polls. 🙂

Status update: 3/15

Hi again. I just wanted to stop by with a quick update. I just sent out rewards to my patrons – including the expanded mini-set from last month that somehow ended up being 21 images! (And really, really nice too.) My other patrons even got an additional preview from it – for those who do not get the full thing. 😀 One other thing… I did not get that final update to SST put together/sent – as I have not received the other voice work yet; but I should have that (allegedly/hopefully) within a week… so I hope to have that ready for the next set of rewards. (Not much I can do about this – it is out of my hands.)

In terms of upcoming stuff; I have a few side things/commissions to do – but I still plan to get the preview for this month’s new mini-set posted sometime next week. We will see what else happens by then; but I hope to make some progress on the new game after I get the mini-set situated. As always, we will see what happens; and I am doing my best with the time I have – but other things may come up, as tends to happen with life.

Anyway, I will see you all again soon… but in the meantime, please vote in the polls on the right and check out all the assorted free content I have posted if you haven’t already! Do also keep in mind that I am currently running a 15% off all commissions above the base promotion right now (until the end of this month) – that does stack with other discounts. So if you think you might be interested in having me make you a render or two of something sexy, feel free to ask about it! 😀

Last chance to get old mini-sets for a while.

Hey. I came by with an unfortunate announcement – I received an email notification a couple days ago that oronjo is apparently shutting down at the end of this month; so as the title of this post reads, this is probably your last chance to get many of those old mini-sets… as I have no backup method of selling them right now. (I can’t really use gumroad, as you are not allowed/supposed to sell hardcore content on there… and most actual distribution sites get more out of it than I do – so there isn’t much point to that either.) I am not entirely sure how to address this… as I am not aware of any similar alternatives, but I will look around; and I really do not want to host a little webshop thing here on this page – as that would require a lot of setup and for me to get an SSL certificate… which costs almost as much as I pay for the hosting.

So… if anyone was considering getting any of those old mini-sets of mine, this is your advance notice that they will likely be unavailable after this month for at least some time. Several have been fairly popular – and there are even a few bundles at the bottom of my oronjo page; so before its too late, check that out if any of the old mini-sets interest you! https://www.oronjo.com/store/Sc7RT7695rpZhsXC2 (The very recently retired ones from this month are not on there as I had not had time to post them yet – and there is no reason for me to put them on there now… so what is on there is all there is.)

New DA stuff posted, commission sale!

Hey again. I have just posted the new DA images – two of which are brand new and quite fun; one of which I am particularly proud of how it turned out. (New Toy.) Sorry this took a few days longer than I estimated – but I have had a moderate catastrophe to try and deal with… which is not looking good at all – and still has yet to be concluded, so my drive and creativity has been drained in no small part due to that.

Quick side note, I am also changing how my $15 patreon tier gets mini-sets. Previously, I had set “reset” months – which basically encouraged people to wait until the last minute to sign up in order get the most out of it… which is just not fair for those who constantly support me; and a bit of a bad idea as well to be honest. So… as of March 1, 2019 – my $15 patreon tier will include the new mini-set from that month, and the three most recent ones… no more. So there will be no more resets; one new mini-set will be put in and one will be taken out each month now, to keep things fresh and fair. I will put the newly retired mini-sets on my oronjo page as soon as I can – but I have a ton of stuff to do right now.

Also, as the title of this post says – I am going to try having a moderate commission sale! Starting today and going on throughout the month of March, so long as slots are available (5 main slots, 5 waitlist) – I will be offering 15% off all commissions above the base price; and that does combine with existing Patreon and repeat customer discounts that I also offer… so this is quite the opportunity for some people. (I also have several Patreon commission tiers that will take the sale into account; and I did recently add a single-slot high end tier on there for either one commission of whatever you want so long as I can do it (cost irrelevant), or two customs that follow normal rules.) So if anyone out there has been considering getting a commission from me, now may be your best chance so far… and even if you weren’t considering it – maybe now you might! Check my commissions page up top for details, and feel free to ask whether or not I can or will do something. 🙂

Other than that, I will see what happens in these next few weeks… I may have just had a rather serious and annoying setback once again – but I will see if that can still be avoided. If that does not take a turn for the worst, I can focus on restarting work on the new game once I get the remaining voice acting bits set. Either way, I will be back with new polls in a couple days.

Salune’s slave training (SST) 1.15 reached!

Hi again. I just sent my applicable patrons Salune’s slave training (SST) v1.15; after a few slight hiccups due to an audio issue I had last night. That is all fixed in theory now – and SST now has all sorts of voice/SFX bits for Salune! (SST now has over 110 voice bits in total now – many of the new ones are SFX bits too!) I hope to add to that with a few additional bits next month; but that depends on several other factors that I mostly have no control of – so we will see how it goes. I will do what I can to get the remaining voice work and such sorted before next month – and see what progress I make on the new game as well.

In the mean time, I plan to work on the new mini-set for next week; as well as the new DA stuff – so we will see how that works out in a few days. Anyway, if you want to play the new version of SST, you should all check out my Patreon page! (Or if my other assorted content interests you and/or you would like to support me and help me make more sexy content!) https://www.patreon.com/redleatherart

New polls for February!

Hi again. I am back with the first post of this month; and as you would expect, it is a review of the old polls, and an introduction to a few new ones. As for the old polls, one asked how you felt about my new lore page – and the few votes that were cast seem to like it; so I will call that a win. The second old poll asked about voiced animations, and unsurprisingly, most people prefer them… and I will see about that fairly soon. The last poll asked about which of my characters was your favorite; and there were not that many votes cast – but Zayla and Helenya were tied for first place, with Tabitha, Lucia, and Salune tied for second… Karen was in third with one vote – and I guess Faye is too new compared to the others, as she did not get any this time around. (Not many votes overall though.) Anyway, it is nice to see that the majority of my characters are appreciated; and I will attempt to drive up interest in the two that scored lowest whenever I can get back to making story sets… but that is a little ways off right now.

As for the new polls, there are only two this time, as one of them is massive; the first poll asks if you prefer more options in event scenes in adult game or instead prefer more detail, and less options. However, another very large older poll is also back; and it is the massive fetish poll! I did this over two years ago – and it is now time to see what has changed if anything; so do vote for your top SEVEN (7) favorite fetishes from all the ones listed! There are all the ones from last time, with a few new ones – I tried to include all fetishes that I would do (or have already done) and a few others that I am considering; with only a couple that I either can’t or won’t do purposely left out.

As for what else is going on, I am still sorting through all this voice work while also trying to get one other new thing sorted… we will see what happens in the next week or so – I should be back with some sort of update if nothing else next week. So in the mean time, definitely vote in the new polls and let me know what your favorite options are!

Status update: 1/26

Hey everyone. I just wanted to pop in and give a quick status update. Everything so far is going according to plan; (the keywords there being – so far) so I still hope to have that other little thing done next week sometime… (which would get a preview here) assuming that I can get the voice work sorted by then. So it might go into the week after; I cannot say for sure just yet – as most of it does not depend on me, especially right now. (I have sent out the first scripts and I am currently waiting for the actual voice lines to get done.) I do still hope to have that and an update to SST ready before rewards go out early next month though; and so far that still seems to be on track.

So please vote in the polls on the right if you haven’t yet… and keep checking back to see what I can get done in the next two weeks or so – depending on how everything with the voice work turns out; and assuming that nothing goes horribly wrong… again.

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. 😀

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. 🙂
