Anniversary poll is up, as is a new contest!

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. πŸ™‚

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.)

Commission sale categories and upcoming Patreon special offer!

Hi again. Sorry this is so much later than I was hoping for – but the remaining renders on the new mini-set were going super slow; and it took several times longer than I was hoping/planning. I even had to cut one scene I had planned due to it taking so very long; but it still ended up at 36 images. (It is really nice though – and have now posted another public preview back in the original post for the mini-set soon due to how nice it is.) Long story semi-short, I have several other things planned for the next month or so besides this commission sale and special offer; but the other things are not quite ready just yet… so I am posting about these two now, and the others will have to wait a bit longer – perhaps until next month for/with the main anniversary stuff. Hopefully these and/or the other things I plan to do next month will bring in a bit more support so I can work on the new game a bit more substantially…

I did update my Patreon page a little… for anyone interested. (New images, new/redone goals, etc… possibly a few other changes to come very soon.) Also, there will soon be a special limited time bonus offer for the $8 and up tiers on my Patreon page. Starting early September, for two months – each month you pledge on those tiers, you can choose one of my earlier mini-sets from #36 and before to receive for free in addition to your regular rewards! (You have to send me a message on Patreon indicating which mini-set you want in order to get anything – otherwise I have no way of knowing what you want; again, you can choose any one mini-set from my first 36 mini-sets per month if you are on the $8 tier or higher.) Check my gumroad page for an easy list of all the mini-sets with a preview image… but the real details for them are on the main post for that specific mini-set preview on my site; I have not yet gotten around to making a catalog of them on here. This special offer will start on Sept 2nd and run for two and a half months – until November 1st, 2019; so check out my newly improved Patreon page and keep that in mind, perhaps you might be interested! https://www.patreon.com/redleatherart

As for the end of summer commission sale, I decided to try some special/specific categories this time around – we will see how that works out:

  • Summer/swimsuit – 25% off !!!
  • Solo/pinup – 20% off
  • Bondage – 20% off
  • Dark/unusual skin colors – 15% off
  • Couples (M/F or F/F, monsters/creatures do count) – 15% off

Note: These discount categories are mutually exclusive – which is to say, they do not stack with each other; only the highest discount will apply. However, these do still stack with other discounts though – such as my repeat customer discount as well as any Patron discounts that you may have. (They will also be taken into consideration for any Patreon commission tiers.) Also worth mentioning, and as before – these discounts cannot take a commission price below the base price for the tier, but they can get you quite a bit more in/with your commission for that same price. πŸ™‚

This sale will also end on November 1st, 2019. Feel free to ask questions if you are wondering if I can/will do a specific commission idea.

In terms of other stuff, I hope to be back within a week or so with the mini-set preview for this month; just my render machine has been working nonstop for a week… so only now can I work on the next one. I also plan to post a special preview of something else to Patrons of mine before the end of the month… and we will see what else I have time for. The other new DA/slushe stuff will likely get bumped to early next month again – though there was that one new image already on my slushe page… and perhaps one more soon. πŸ˜€

New DA stuff posted, Gumroad page now available!

Hi again. Sorry this took a little bit, but I have now posted the new DA images on my DA page, and will be added to my Slushe page in the morning! I am still catching up a bit after losing so much time last month – but I think things are going about as well as can be expected right now. Over the weekend, I will try and finish the other renders I want to put in the mini-set from last month; and then move back to working on the new game again… with whatever time I can manage. Sometime during the next two weeks or so I will take a break from that and try to fix that one sci-fi mini-set again… hopefully I can get that somewhere that I like so that I can use this short story that I already wrote for it – but we will see what happens. Worst case, I just redo both of them – but I think I can fix it. πŸ™‚

In other news, I now have a gumroad shop – (I set that up and listed everything over the past few days while the DA stuff rendered) it is linked up top in the main navigation menu as well as here: https://gumroad.com/redleatherart. All of my old mini-sets that are no longer offered through my Patreon page are listed there; and I have made several discounted bundles of six mini-sets each, going up though mini-set 42! Mini-sets 1-6 are only available in a bundle – as was the case with my oronjo shop; the rest can be purchased individually if desired. The newest mini-sets (after 42)Β  up though 52 are listed for sale but not in bundles… but if people really seem to like the bundle idea, I may make more – we will see. At some point in the near future I need to make a new page on here with some kind of master guide/list for all my old mini-sets… preferably with buy links and stuff – but for now the basic info/previews on my gumroad page will have to do. (I had to crop several of the previews to not have explicit content showing on my base page.) As a little extra bit to try and kick this off right, the first twenty people to purchase something from my gumroad page can use the code “first20” to save 20% on it!

Anyway, I will be back in a week or so with some sort of update – I hope you all enjoy the new content in the mean time, and do vote in the polls on the right if you haven’t yet!

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. πŸ™‚

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.

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.)

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.

Special poll results, new polls, other news.

Hi again. So I have taken down the polls from last month and put a few new ones up. The results for the special poll were rather depressing – with a grand total of two votes, both for Faye. I have no idea why votes were so low this time around; but it does not bode well for next year – I will say that much. (I never did another contest because the first one didn’t get much legitimate interest; I do have several ideas for another one though, should that ever change.) I really would have thought that a free image set would garner more interest than this. However, I will make a four image mini-set starring Faye and post it a bit later this month… it will only be the bare minimum number of images this time since nobody seemed particularly interested. As for the other polls, the one condom one was a total tie, which is not helpful; but I am not a huge fan of condoms so that is not likely to happen anyway. (Nobody voted for the highly positive option – so that is my take-away from this one.) The last poll was also rather balanced in terms of results – but it seems to indicate that most of you would be interested in having more information about characters you like – or at least not opposed to it.

As for the new polls, the first one asks what your favorite adult game type is, and please pick three (3) – just to check that again a few years later and see what has changed… if anything. The second poll asks how you feel about the music in adult games – so let me know; as this will be used rather soon potentially. The third poll asks how you feel about pregnancies in adult games… so let me know about that also if you would.

Other than all this, I am currently working on the event images for the game as well as some of the coding bits for the random character generation thing. (I apparently need to add bits to it to get it to work the way I want and do all that i need.) So rather than have anything playable in a week or so; I just hope to have an event preview or two before then for my Patreon patrons. (As noted previously, there would not have been much to it at this stage anyway – plus, more people get to enjoy the event previews; so I think this will work out better for now.) I will continue to work on this and hopefully have something together for next month; for those patrons of mine that get access to the beta versions. I will also post one of the character previews here a bit later this month, we will see what else I have by then. I may also post LITC 1 publicly next month; but that is up in the air still. (I might have a little side thing for my patrons soon as well, not entirely sure just yet; I am working on several smaller things on the sidelines.)

Also a warning – my Patreon mini-set list is going to reset starting next month, so this is the last month to get the full set of currently offered mini-sets; which will be eight (8) total once rewards for this month go out in a week or so. So if anyone out there wants access to this batch of mini-sets before most of them are retired to my oronjo shop, now is the time to get them from my Patreon.

 

Older mini-sets are now for sale!

Hey again. So as the title suggests, I have finally found a place to sell my old mini-sets, and in theory everything is set up and working… I hope. I have listed all my old mini-sets on oronjo and priced them according to number of images and quality (aka age); as well as whether or not it has a story element to it. Unlike most online content stores, in theory I get the majority of the revenue from this; so the prices are low partly because of that and partly because I wanted to be reasonable. (Many other artists sell old Patreon stuff at whatever full price was back at the time.) There are also a few bundles of some of the really old mini-sets, so you could get a bit of a discount if you buy those bundles instead of buying the mini-sets individually; and if the bundles prove popular, I may make bundles of the other mini-sets as well. (The oldest mini-sets areΒ only available in a bundle; and that bundle includes a very old 24 image story set with Karen and a beastman.) The actual product listings themselves are rather basic… but I just assume that anyone interested enough to actually buy any of them already read the post on the site about it and/or can guess what it contains.

I hope to be back in a day or two with the mini-set preview; but as mentioned previously, I am a bit behind for assorted reasons – but I am doing what I can.

If you want to help support me and my work, and/or are just interested in obtaining some of my older mini-sets, check out my oronjo shop! (Hopefully everything works correctly.) The link to the store is up top in the menu bar, and also here:
