Hi again – sorry for the delay on this post, but I had a lot to work on to put into all this; particularly because I changed my idea for the contest at the last minute two days ago. (I was going to do another, albeit slightly different writing contest; but I decided against that for the moment…) I did also just post two brand new images to my slushe/DA pages – in addition to the Angels and Demons 4 one I posted a couple weeks back. Just a quick reminder though – I have a special offer going on my Patreon page; where you can get one of my older mini-sets from 36 and before for free (per month) along with the regular rewards for the $8 and up tiers!!! This offer will continue until the end of October – so you could get two bonus mini-sets in total! If you decide to take advantage of this special offer, just sign up for an applicable tier and send me a private message on Patreon telling me which mini-set you want. There is also the anniversary commission sale of course, with different %s off for a few select categories, detailed a few posts below this one. 🙂
As for the old polls – there were not many votes again for whatever reason… for the invested poll, the only vote was for very invested, which is always nice to hear. The other poll asked about summer themed images/sets – and the only votes seemed to favor those… which is expected, and nice, so you may want to check the one new image I posted to DA/slushe!
In regard to the new polls, there are two again… one is the obvious anniversary poll; asking which of the three remaining girls should star in this year’s anniversary mini-set. However – things will be at least slightly different this time; by which I mean that the effort I put forward into the mini-set will be based on the total votes in the poll. If nobody wants to take the two seconds to vote, then there is no real reason for me to waste several hours making a free mini-set off of it. So more votes will mean better results – but only up to a point, obviously. (It is not going to be over a dozen or so total, no matter how many votes there are.) Hopefully this will lead to more than one or two votes this time… but we will see what happens. The other poll just asks what your thoughts are about the new cum look I tried out in the recent (60th) mini-set preview, so definitely let me know about that also; as I think it is better, and will likely stick with that unless people just hate it for some reason.
So… to get to the part of this post that people are probably more interested in – I have posted a new contest, the details of which are here: http://redleatherart.com/wp/?page_id=2691. It is a trivia contest – with 23 questions regarding assorted aspects of my work over the years, spanning the whole thing in one way or another. If you can answer 22 out of 23 questions correctly, you get to pick one of the five prizes from the prize pool – which includes awesome prizes like: a free custom commission, a free standard commission, three free mini-sets of your choice from 30 or before, one free mini-set of your choice from 40 or before, and a free copy of SST. Obviously some prizes are better than others – but that is how prize tiers generally are. (Five prizes for the fifth anniversary… it just seemed to make sense.) I also tried to not make it that hard… since it is the first contest of this type that I have tried; if it proves successful/popular, future contests like it will certainly be harder.
Definitely check all that out… and I will be back next week with some sort of update – I have a bunch of stuff to finish in the mean time. I may also have more stuff in store a bit further on… so we will just have to see what happens. (Again, if people show interest, that would make quite the difference.)
