March polls, and a status update.

Hey again. I am back as I said previously with the poll results from last time (for what they were) and two new polls! For the old poll results – only one person voted in the short story feedback one… but at least they said it was good; so thanks very much to whoever that was, assuming it was true. (I would be interested in detailed feedback, but that seems unlikely…) The other poll asked about your favorite type of adult scenario – and shockingly, this was almost a total tie. Cuddly sex and non-con technically won with three votes each – but everything except prostitution came in second place with two votes; so I am not entirely sure there is much to be drawn from that poll… but thank you for voting to those that did. I am really not overly sure why nobody wants to vote in the polls here – it takes like three seconds… but the general lack of interest/enthusiasm for something so simple also lets me know that my other plans for contests/raffles and such would be pointless for non-patrons right now (which I already knew from my last contest attempt…) – but I will check again in several months, maybe things will be better then.

Anyway – the new polls are up… and I would appreciate more votes in those. The first poll asks how you like my mini-set master catalog; and the second asks how you feel about the rest of the scene/extras in adult content – i.e. not the actual characters, but other bits in the scene that may help set the mood/tone. Do please let me know your thoughts regarding those, and we will see if things work out a bit better this time.

As for my current progress, I am retrying that animation – we will see how it comes out this time once it finishes; I am giving it a fair chunk of time per frame and redoing most of it just to do it right… hopefully there will not be more crap to fix this time – but there usually is. I will give it one or two attempts, then likely go back and finish the mini-set first if need be; I put myself rather far behind last month due to spending too much time early in the month on this before – so I do not want to repeat that mistake. (I realize/presume I am being far too strict with this one – but it is what it is… this is just what I always do, constantly going back and fixing things after I have already rendered it.) I did also post the newly retired mini-sets on my gumroad page, and updated the master catalog to include all previous mini-sets except this most recent one. So do check that out if you are interested; and for those wondering – I have no idea why the mini-sets keep getting shuffled around on my gumroad page… I have given up trying to fix it since it just keeps jumbling them up every single time for some bizarre reason. (Just use the search thing on there if you aren’t using a direct link from my master catalog.)

Quick recap – I do want to remind everyone about the commission raffle I am hosting on my Patreon page – where one lucky tiered Patron of mine will win a free standard commission on March 30th! (Standard commissions are the ones featuring my characters and/or  generic ones, for those who don’t know.) I have wanted to try something  like this for a while – so I am going to go ahead and test it out… we will see how it all goes. (One of my mid-level Patreon goals is to have these raffles each month, if/when I can get to a point where I will have  the time for that…) For now though, this is a one time special event; and again, all active tiered patrons of mine this month (March) are entered. I will do the random drawing/choose the winner on March 30th. The winner will have 72 hours after the selection/announcement to respond/claim their prize – if  whoever the first choice is does not respond in that time, I will choose  another winner… and so on – if necessary. Whatever the commission is, it cannot cross any of my normal “won’t touch” content types (and I  have to agree to whatever your idea is, of course…), and it will be  public as well… so everyone will get to see it!

Status update: 2/22 – March Patreon raffle announced!

Hi. Sorry this took so long – but those animation attempts really ate up my early month render time – so I had to do a lot of catching up this past week. Long story short – the mini-set renders are finally done, it ended up at 34 images and that was just sent out to appropriate patrons of mine! Patrons also got the bonus preview, which I will likely post elsewhere in a month or so – we will see. I think I also still need to list the latest retired mini-set on my Gumroad page… I will try to get to that as soon as I can.

A very interesting/exciting upcoming thing – next month I am holding my first ever commission raffle, for all my Patreon patrons! Late next month I will randomly select a winner from all my tiered patrons and they will be able to claim a free standard commission! (Standard commissions are the ones featuring my characters and/or generic ones, for those who don’t know.) I have wanted to try something like this for a while – so I am going to go ahead and test it out… we will see how it all goes. (One of my mid-level Patreon goals is to have these raffles each month, if/when I can get to a point where I will have the time for that…) For now though, this is a one time special event; and again, all active tiered patrons of mine next month (March) are entered. I will do the random drawing/choose the winner on March 30th. The winner will have 72 hours after the selection/announcement to respond/claim their prize – if whoever the first choice is does not respond in that time, I will choose another winner… and so on – if necessary. Whatever the commission is, it cannot cross any of my normal “won’t touch” content types (and I have to agree to whatever your idea is, of course…), and it will be public… so everyone will get to see it! 😀

My Patreon page is here, for quick reference: https://www.patreon.com/redleatherart

Also, you can get a free entry to the raffle by completely filling out this seven question feedback form (you have to actually try, and give serious answers) and sending it to me via email (support@redleatherart.com) before the deadline. (Limit of one entry per person, regardless of method.)

1.) What is your single favorite content item I have made so far and why? (This could be a story set chapter, animation, character, or a even specific image.)

2.) What is favorite type of content that I make? (Story sets, image sets, mini-sets, games, animations, short stories, something else?)

3.) What would you like to see more of from me? (This can be a character, content type, or a fetish.)

4.) What is your favorite aspect of my work, and why?

5.) What do you feel is the weakest aspect of my work so far and why?

6.) Is there anything in particular you are looking forward to seeing me do? (This could be a certain situation, character combination, the next story arc, or just something like finishing my new game.)

7.) What do you feel is the thing that I do best? (I was thinking like a fetish/scene type here, but I guess content type could work also, or even something like character design.)

So in regard to what remains of this month, I will be back again next week with the mini-set preview at the minimum; but I want to give that animation another go when I can… I will see what I can manage – that thing just eats up so much time. Other than that – more votes in the polls on the right would really be appreciated… one poll had no votes at all as of me posting this… and the other is rather low in terms of total votes as well – and a near total tie even so. I do use these poll results, and low/no results means I have little to no idea how people like different things; if you want me to make more of whatever you like/prefer – I need feedback of some sort… I thought the polls made it rather easy. (Or people could actually leave comments…)

Extra preview for October mini-set, special Patreon Xmas poll!

Hi again. Sorry for the gap in posts – I was really hoping to have that last mini-set done by now, but the renders are taking quite a while to do because of the hard lighting/reflections. (Having a lot of fun with it despite it being softcore though.) I hope to have this done within a few days and then move on to the new DA stuff – but we will see what happens. I still have that and the new mini-set preview for December to do… but that is somewhat further complicated by the other new bit below.

Anyways – as you probably noticed in the title, I did add an additional/new preview for that October mini-set (the drider one) back in the post for it (http://redleatherart.com/wp/?p=2811) and/or on the master catalog – so do check that out if you are into that sort of thing. I also did finally upload the fifth anniversary VHQ image to my redbubble… for those who really liked it.

I also am currently hosting a special Xmas poll on my Patreon page for all my patrons – which will decide the subject of a special bonus image that I will make/post for them sometime after the poll is finished, one week from now. (It may or may not actually be done before Xmas – you know how it is…) Obligatory link to my Patreon page, for anyone interested: https://www.patreon.com/redleatherart

It is done… Mini-set master catalog now available!

Hi again. I just came by to let you all know that I went ahead and finished the mini-set master catalog! It is here: [http://redleatherart.com/wp/?page_id=2758] This page currently has all 60 of my current finished mini-sets on it – with a concise description, image count, major content tags, any previews, as well as links to the original post and the applicable gumroad page(s)! (I wanted this page to be short and to the point… but I may add/adjust things later if need be.)

It was actually very shocking and/or awkward to go through all of these… and see how much things have changed over the years; and it also made me even more aware of my recent skill/quality increase. (This is to be expected I guess… but still; your recent work really looks so much better after going through everything you have ever done.) I admit some of the content tagging on the old mini-sets could be a bit better… either due to missing tags or just things I didn’t think would be enough of a thing to tag back at the time. (There may also be a few minor errors in there somewhere… as the page is brand new and I am too tired to check though all of it again; but I will double check it in a week or two.) This was very draining to do, but it really needed to be done… and I am actually quite happy with how it turned out; so hopefully this helps you all easily browse/navigate my many mini-sets! 😀

Anyway… if anyone wants to check out the catalog and/or possibly throw some support my way by buying something, that would be great; all the links redirect to gumroad, [https://gumroad.com/redleatherart] so it is all secure and whatnot. (I can’t afford an SSL certificate for this site, and my hosting does not support the free SSL stuff… I checked.) The more recent mini-sets are still available via my Patreon page, so those are listed on there but not yet available for individual purchase. (I also give out coupons for my gumroad shop to Patreon patrons – of varying discounts.) My most recent mini-set is not on there yet as it is not finished. Obligatory Patreon link: [https://www.patreon.com/redleatherart]

I will be back with an update of some sort next week sometime… in the mean time, please check out my new catalog, the polls on the right, and/or my other pages in the meantime!

Two early slave girl previews on my Patreon page, one here soon.

Hey again. I am back with a quick little update for the site regarding my progress. I just posted the two new early previews for two of the three (currently planned) basic slave girl characters in my new game on my Patreon page – the human and the half-elf. (I hope to get the full elf one ready by next week sometime, either before or after the mini-set preview.) 😀 People allegedly preferred more scenes to visual diversity according to a prior poll, so that is what my plan is right now. The human preview will get re-posted here in a couple weeks – I am not sure about the rest just yet; it mostly depends on the progress I make with the game related stuff. Things are going fairly well as of late; which is nice considering the hurricane and all the other shit that has happened. I am aiming to try and get some semi-playable alpha for my mid-level patrons in time for next month’s main patreon rewards, but we will see if that works out. (There won’t be much to see yet even if I can get something together… but still – some people allegedly want to see early builds, so why not.) 🙂

Again, for any newcomers that may read this – there is all sorts of free content on here (such as the entirety of the “Road to Lithorca” story line sets); check the “Freely released image sets!” tab up top! Other than that, there is a bunch of other newer content from me available via my patreon page, (including my previous full game w/voice bits – “Salune’s Salve Training” – which has a demo available up top!) and/or the link up top to the oronjo webshop that sells my older mini-sets that are no longer offered via my Patreon page.

So I will be back next week with the mini-set preview at the least, we will see what else I manage to have ready by then. In the mean time, the polls could always use more votes – especially the one special poll for the anniversary mini-set; I would think you would all care about free content… this is really weird to me that the most important poll has the fewest votes.

Special Patreon mini-set posted, and mini-set reset.

Hey. I am back with the first post of May to let you all know that I have posted that special mini-set made for that early goal on my Patreon page to my current patrons last night… and it will remain available for all newer tiered Patrons of mine as well. The “mini” set ended up being 11 very nice softcore/solo images of Zayla in her bedroom… and one in particular I really like – perhaps enough to make a HD render of it later when I can find the time.

As the title suggests, I also have reset the list of included mini-sets for the mid tier of my Patreon page… and I have also decided to do this every six months from now on – so it will reset again in November. Only the new mini-set from last month and the two before it are included now; and of course newer ones will be added as well, until it resets again. (I am still looking into finding a good way to sell the older mini-sets; but there are not many options other than hosting my own little webshop, which I really do not want to do.)

I will post the new polls shortly, as well as the post discussing the previous set of polls. Sorry this is a bit late, but I have had a busy last couple of days.

Patreon rewards sent, current plans.

Hey again. Sorry this is a bit late but I ran into an embarrassing technical issue with two renders last night that I had to fix – so I had to bump rewards back until today; but those are all fixed and rewards are sent now.

Long story short, the new story set ended up at 40 images, each with a clean and story version; and the mini-set from last month ended up twice as big at 14 images somehow. There were even a couple bonus renders included in the “extras” category that I am trying to add to more than I used to. So I hope the people who get those enjoy them; and I really hope the slight delays for extra content were worth it – I think it was. I also got to try a few new things in this story set… and I will see how that goes over.

As for upcoming stuff, I hope to get the preview for this month’s new mini-set posted towards the weekend, maybe early next week; with possibly some other new thing coming soon-ish depending on the time I have left. (Still a bit behind due to weather shenanigans earlier in the month.) Other than that, I appreciate all the votes in the polls and I hope those continue to go up; apparently people like the fun polls… which is good to know. Also, there will be another Patreon poll next month for that mini-set to decide part of it; so check that out if that interests you. Anyway, I will be back in a few days with something; so keep voting in the polls until then!

May patreon story set complete!

Hi again! So the not so mini-set for my mid level patrons this month is sort of done; I say sort of because I stopped at eleven images… (I was aiming for ten) but I almost certainly will add something more after this. I had to stop myself from going further at the moment, but I want to come back and put in one or two more images if I can get the time before this gets sent out. This is also a story set as well; so each image has a clean and story version to it. The base idea for this set is that Zayla plays with two of her male slaves (a young elven guy and an older human bandit) for a bit of a change. I actually don’t think I have ever even shown one of Zayla’s male slaves before… at least one that isn’t a monster; so this is rather significant.

I think it came out really well and as noted, I like it enough to want to do more; but I really have other stuff I need to get on to right now. (I want to make sure i get at least one of the of the missing events done for the game this month… preferably two.) The set has the sort of content you would expect from a MMF threesome; but check the tags for details, I think I got everything. This one was actually kind of rough to do since I kept hitting the texture limit for the scene and had to repeatedly edit things down a bit to get it to render; but I think it was worth it in the end. I decided to only post one preview for now since it didn’t seem fair to post more than one publicly… but I might post another if I add a lot after this; so I may come back and edit this post to add in another preview. (The one I am currently thinking of posting is one of the exposition images that occurs before the below one though.) EDIT 7/1: Added that other preview image, which is also on my DA page. Regardless, this will get sent out to appropriate patrons when rewards go out early next month along with previous mini-sets from #26 and up.

As usual, if you want to support my work on all of this stuff and maybe even get access to these mini-sets and/or future polls (remember, the topic of this story set was chosen by a patreon poll), check out my Patreon page: https://www.patreon.com/redleatherart. Anything and everything put forward really helps; both in terms of support and motivation.

February Patreon mini-set preview!

Hey again. As the title suggests, below is the public preview of this month’s Patreon mini-set. The mini-set poll this month ended in a tie, so I had to decide between the two winning entries. Long story short, I went with the sci-fi themed futa/parasite option; as referenced a few posts back. So the below preview is from this five image mini-set (six really, but one is the old establishing shot/preview that I changed, so one is an unused render of sorts). It features two lab assistants testing out the sexual characteristics of a strange new parasite in a special test chamber; when one gets a little more than she planned for. I think this came out much better than I though it would, and I quite like it; though I did go back and fix a bunch of little things. Side note here, I do feel bad that I went with this option of the two, (since much of my recent work has been game content which is mostly futa, and I usually try to diversify… so I probably should have done the other one; but I wanted to do some sci-fi stuff to here it is) so long story short, I may revisit the one other option that got passed up this time in a few months. If you want to support me and maybe even get access to these mini-sets and/or future polls (or lots of other rewards), check out my Patreon page: https://www.patreon.com/redleatherart

In other news, votes in the two polls over on the right are rather low, more would be appreciated. I hope to be back mid-next week with some new DA stuff and the free release of RTL 12 sometime next week as well.

Patreon page updated, open for commissions!

Hey again, I just came by to give you all a quick update and make two semi-major announcements. Instead of working on the main content for the month so soon, i decided to take care of all the clerical stuff that needed doing. (Still working on updating one other thing, so it’s not mentioned here.) As the title suggests, my Patreon page has been updated slightly; and I have cut out a lot of the body text that used to be there in addition to updating the reward tiers. Most things are the same, but I had to make a few minor edits due to this new game being done soon(ish) and some other content that I am planning to try out in the near future. The other announcement is of course that I am giving commissions a test run, to see how that goes. Yes, technically commissions were available on my Patreon as a higher tier reward, but now there are other options as well as the Patreon tiers. (Though those are still the best deal overall.)

Check the commissions page up top if you are interested, there are other offers on my Patreon page and my DA page as well. I have no idea how long I will do this and/or if it will even work out; but I wanted to give it a shot. In other news, the poll is going rather well; but more votes is always a good thing. Some stranger options in the poll are doing surprisingly well; but there is still time for everything to change, so vote now if you haven’t yet! Otherwise, check back later this week for some other update; likely the mini-set preview and/or another small content update.
