First contest renders finally done!

Hi again, sorry for the delay in getting this posted but I still have some really nasty cold/flu type thing (had to go to the doctor and get assorted medicines for it) and haven’t been able to get much done the past few days. I hope to get a patreon preview of RTL 10 up by the end of this week, but it is hard to say if I can make that at this point. Regardless, here is the post with the winning contest entry renders which I finally managed to get done over the past few days. As previously mentioned way back when I had the contest page up, the top three entries get around ten, five, and one render respectively. Third place got it’s one render, second ended up with six, and first got twelve renders in total! Each entry is below with a preview image, a link to the actual written entry, and finally a download link to the archive with the renders and the written entry. (No download link for third place, as it is just the one image that is there.) I think each of these ended up really nice; (far better than I originally hoped) and I hope the winners like them and that all of you enjoy them. There is no password on these .7z archives.

RLA first anniversary short story contest winners!

Hey! So it’s that time where I announce the winners of my first short story contest. First, I want to thank everyone who submitted an entry, and remind everyone to not take it personally if you did not win. I enter dozens of contests on DA and the like, and I have only won once. So if you did not win, please do not feel bad; there are always other contests. Also remember that all contest judging is subjective; everyone has likes and dislikes, but I tried to be as fair and objective as I could be here. Just to debunk a quick myth/common misconception here: I did not do this contest to get ideas for my image sets, I was doing it as a fun anniversary idea that required participation. I seriously have enough story arcs/sets lined up to keep my stuff going for years; this contest was just meant to be a fun chance for some of you to put your ideas forward.

Anyway, there were three entries that stood above the rest to me, using the criteria that I laid out on the contest page. So here are the top three with a short explanation of why I chose these entries. Just a reminder, first place gets ten-ish images, second place gets five-ish images and third place gets one (maybe two). Quick note here, when I posted the .rtf files, I did edit the entries to remove the non-story bits and put in the titles and authors names, so if I made a mistake somewhere please let me know and I will fix it as soon as I can.

The Knight and the Naiad

I chose this entry for first place chiefly because I felt it was the best written entry of those submitted. The overall story idea isn’t too original, but the characters and story are very well done and it should appeal to fantasy and couples fans, as well as fans of pregnancy stuff. Though the end of the main sex scene is a bit vague, but he did this on purpose to leave me a lot of creative/artistic room to do essentially whatever I wanted with this should it have won. (Which was nice of him.) So I will see what I can do with this whenever I can find the time to do the images for these entries.

Second place: Surrendering Her Body

Surrendering Her Body

This entry got second place because it was a very well composed entry overall. Like the first place entry, this story idea wasn’t all that original either, however the entry did everything that I asked, and it got a lot of points for that. What got this entry second place was the fact that it was well balanced and well composed overall; which was the best thing to do to get as many points as possible according to the contest rules that I posted. It didn’t place first because I felt the first place entry was a better written story and I was a little weirded out by the possession thing, and there are some cheesy bits in the dialogue here and there. I am also not a huge futa fan, but I did not hold that against this entry; I mention this only to explain that this was not a bonus to me. The sex scene bits are well done though and cover the standard bases, and it will be interesting to see what I can make out of the things he wrote in here. As previously noted, this was well done overall. This entry should please futa fans.

Third place: Ambrosia of Fertility

Ambrosia of Fertility

The third place entry got a lot of points from originality. This was the only solo entry that I received, so it got a bunch of originality points for having the guts to even try that. I only referenced this option in one line in the contest rules, so it is nice to see that some people read though it all. This is essentially a solo/masturbation story and though there is no actual hardcore sex in it, it is well written and original. Bit of a surprise at the end of this one as well, so check it out.

So there you have it! Congratulations to all the winners and thanks again to everyone who submitted entries. As mentioned previously, the images for these entries likely won’t get done until next month or so as my back is currently acting up again, I have a lot of stuff to do this month, and I have to assemble my new machine later this week as soon as the RMA gets here. I have also sent out Patreon rewards for last month and hope to get a Patreon RTL 8 preview up something this weekend.

Contest is now closed, and this month’s plans.

Hey again.

The contest is now closed so I have taken the old contest page down and I will go over the entries that were submitted and select the winners over the next few weeks. I have no idea when the images for the winning entries will be done, but I am aiming for before the end of December. I also had some assorted back issues last weekend/earlier this week due to me overdoing it the previous week finishing up RTL 7 among with things. I had little choice but to get another shot in my spine and hopefully I will not need another, but I need to be more careful regardless.

In other news, I currently am planning to try and either make a small VN this month or a small animation; I am not sure which yet. The next main image set will almost certainly be pushed back into next month as I am feeling particularly drained right now. On that note, more votes in the polls this month would be great; though it likely won’t be in time for a VN made this month, (if that happens) it would be useful to know for future projects. I plan to try and make a few images for DA over the coming week as well since I have been putting that off for almost two weeks now due to assorted problems that keep coming up.

Definite short story contest extension – UPDATED 10/3

In other news, I am definitely extending the short story contest; firstly due to me getting yet another error mail from my server again yesterday, indicating that there are still some issues, and second due to the currently low number of actual acceptable entries. I was then undecided as to how long I should extend it, so I just decided to go another month. The contest now ends on November 7th. If you can write even half-decently and want to possibly get what is essentially a free 10 image commission (of sorts) and/or some free publicity; you now have another month to come up with something. There aren’t really a lot of limits as to what you can write about here; I thought there would be more interest (and effort) in this contest than there seems to be.

I have updated the contest page with the new end date and hope that there will be more (and complete) entries. Please remember that there are only three parts per entry that I ask for in the contest; two of which shouldn’t be more than a couple of paragraphs each. If you don’t include all three things and then don’t fix it, your chances of winning and/or even being a qualified entry aren’t great. So please include the character info part and the sex scenario summary in your entry; it doesn’t take long to write and greatly helps me understand what I am getting into and looking for before getting into the story proper.

Please note that there are also definite prizes for second and third place now; a mini set for second place and a single image for third. Be aware that I plan to include the winning submission(s) with the image and/or set that I make from it; for additional context if nothing else.

RTL 7 public early preview, some new stuff on DA, and probable contest extension.

Hey. Below is the early public preview image of RTL chapter seven, working title: “Caught in a Corner”. As you can see it will feature Zayla getting caught in a rather compromising position by one of the intruders in her lair. (The tags on this post hint at what I plan to include in it, but are not necessarily final.) It will almost assuredly definitely run well into next month as I am still recovering from my various health issues and am absolutely not going to push it and risk anything getting messed up again. As the post title also suggests, I have also posted two new, if plain preview images from RTL 6 on DA (due to DA rules/most group standards) as well as two three totally new images!

Important side note here: I may extend the short story contest, I am still undecided on this; but I think it is very likely to happen to some degree. I personally had horrible issues accessing my own site much of the time for a few weeks back there until the people who host it fixed it for me on their end using methods that will not help other people having issues accessing my site. I am assuming/hoping that the connection problems are the reason for the various drastic drops in visitors some days over the last two weeks; one day in particular around two weeks ago was the worst day for visits here since the week I started hosting this new site. So there is a week and a half left on the contest at the minimum; but likely there will be more time, so get an entry together if you haven’t already! It doesn’t have to be five pages, that is just the maximum. (It also only refers to and/or counts the story itself, not the other parts.)

Also, the polls are still very low; I can only assume nobody really cares about the file format I use and/or better written descriptions of my sets. Anyway, I should have the story-mini-set for my higher end Patrons on Patreon done in the next couple days and a preview posted here. (I got distracted and made the RTL 7 preview/ DA stuff instead the last few days.)

Oh snap! There’s a contest!

Hi again. So the main big thing this month is that I’m going to hold a contest, the details of which are up on that page up there that says CONTEST!. Instead of repeating everything over there on here for no reason, I will summarize; you guys can submit a short story and if it is the best entry, I will make a ten image set about it! Isn’t that cool? You all should check it out, especially other artists/writers which I am going to try and notify via email as well in case they don’t check my site regularly. The contest will be up for a month starting today and is the perfect chance for all of you to get me to make whatever you want within reason. You want elf on elf lesbian action? You want futa on futa fun? How about pregnancy related stuff? Want me to try and make a sci-fi scene? Or do you just want more tentacles? Whatever the case, if you want it bad enough you’ll read the rules and enter the contest, and if you do a good enough job then maybe you can get whatever you want! Spread the word about the poll, the contest, my site, everything.

One things to keep in mind regarding the contest; I will do my best to be fair and unbiased towards different entries, but I have my weaknesses. These things include but are not limited to; elves, dark skin, big tits (within reason; ridiculously huge tits are just silly/tasteless), succubi, catgirls, creampies, and other things you tend to see a lot of in my work. So you may want to take those things into account when writing your entry.

I am still in considerable pain and have no idea if I will be able to do a main image set this month; much of it depends on how my injection goes tomorrow, which with luck will greatly help with the pain. I am also trying to figure out wtf to do regarding much of the Patreon crap I wanted to do, as a few patrons dropped and that leaves patron only votes rather pointless as there are only a few to vote; even if the patrons that are still processing clear. There are also a bunch of new things I wanted to try out and test on patrons which is rather difficult when there are so few… I will see what happens. Also RTL 4 gets a free release sometime this week; exactly when is a surprise.
