Hi again. Here is the public post of the early preview for the next RTL chapter; as voted by my Patreon patrons last month, the main scene focus in this set will be Zayla and some goblins. Zayla’s depicted attempt to stop the intruders from escaping clearly won’t go as planned, but I think the way it works out will be better for everyone. I am hoping to have this next story set done sometime late next week, with the mini-set for the month likely done sometime between now and then. Anyway, here is the actual preview; so check this out and vote in the polls and check back later for the mini-set preview and/or the final previews for RTL 10!
Hi again! First thing to note is that I have lost a lot of time this week to having some kind of spring flu. I felt crappy when I re-uploaded that one image a few days ago, but I never thought it would get as bad as it did. Long story short. I haven’t slept in two days and I still feel really shitty and can’t focus at all really; so I haven’t finished the first place contest entry yet. I am hoping this clears up by the weekend, but I have to wait and see. Don’t forget to vote in the new polls on the right!
Anyway, here is the free release of RTL 7, as noted in the title. The set features James and Zayla as shown in the previews below the download link.

Hi again, it’s finally the time that most of you have likely been waiting for; the free release of RTL chapter six! As depicted in the previews, the set features Tabitha, Salune, and some tentacles. The original previews are below for convenience, as well as the download link.

Also, new stuff is up on my DA page; three images of which are totally new and quite nice.
Hi again. Here is the public preview for this month’s Patreon mini-set for the applicable tiers. The mini-set is currently six images and it is a bit different than usual as it features these two random hot elven girls getting fucked by a bunch of magical tentacles (although I may add an image or two to that total like last month, no guarantees though). In other news, I sort of figured out at least one part of the lighting problem with RTL 8, but after “fixing” the issue I found, I realized that the way it was is much better in a lot of ways; so I feel much better about how RTL 8 turned out now despite still being very confused. It seems like there is/was just some issue with the scene I used for it that I cannot discern. Anyway, I will post again in a few days with the old poll results discussion, new polls, and my plans for next month. In the mean time, if you like this preview image and want to get access to these Patreon mini-sets, and/or early access to my regular main story sets, maybe even other assorted bonuses, or perhaps you just want to support my work and help me make more and/or better content, check out my Patreon page!

Hey. Long story short, it’s been a pretty crappy past few days for a variety of reasons, and my street is still covered in 2-3 feet of snow as it still hasn’t been cleared. (EDIT: Ironically, an hour after I posted this the trucks came to clear the snow; I would have written this days ago if I had known that would happen.) I still have been getting headaches as well; both from the weather and from all sorts of shit in RTL 8 not working right. I haven’t had this many issues rendering a main set in a while, but for some reason the lighting in RTL 8 just was not behaving at all. My best guess is that transferring the scene from one machine to another completely messed with it somehow; I don’t know what else could cause two days worth of issues. I literally spent 3-4 hours earlier just trying to fix the lighting. The current lighting is still not what I was hoping for, but it will have to do since it’s the best I can get in this scene for some reason. I would have just made another scene had I known it would have this many issues at render time.
Even now, when the set is basically done, I still need to fix a few small issues in the last scene that I apparently missed on the previous renders, (I noticed the problems during postwork phase) as well as a few other minor things mostly related to the lighting. (I could leave it, but there is no reason not to fix it right now.) However, it has been long enough already so I am posting the previews now; I was not going to use any images from that late in the set for the previews anyway. I cannot give an exact image count of the set yet, (since the last scene needs to be redone a bit) but it is likely going to be 30-something images. [EDIT: Final count is 42 images, each with both clean and story versions.] It features Helenya the succubus “fighting” a magical summoned dire wolf. Below are two story and two clean preview images, I may make minor changes to one of them but I think these images are clear of the issues in the future scenes. I should have a preview of this month’s mini-set posted later this week.
Hey again. RTL chapter 7 is finally done; including a few variations, each version (clean, story) is 52 images! Granted, about a third of that is plot related, but still I think it is impressive; and this is my largest set to date. The general story of the set revolves around an accidental meeting between Zayla and James, and the rough sex that results from that. This set also features many attempts at new, artier things as well; such as better lighting and different camera angles. There are also my first attempts at making X-ray style cut in images, which I think turned out a lot better than I was expecting; one preview of that is included below. I know it looks a bit odd just tacked on as a rectangle like that, but I spent a few hours trying different ways of working it in and nothing really looked any better that would work for each image with this alternate version; (there are six of them in the set) so I just decided to leave it this way, as it is more uniform and I think it looks fine as it is. I am still fiddling with a few images in the set in terms of postwork, just to try and get a few things looking a little better. I feel that this set is my best so far in many ways; it is the most effort I have put into one set so far and the best I can currently do in most respects.
Below are four preview images for this new set, (two clean, two story) the complete set will be sent out to appropriate Patrons on my Patreon page each month after payments clear until it gets released free here; although I still have not decided when that will be from now on. I am currently leaning toward six months at the minimum, but more on that whenever I go over the polls. If you want access to this new set and others early, check out my Patreon page and support me! https://www.patreon.com/redleatherart I am also now limiting the story preview images to early in the set so that the ending/progression is not so obvious in future sets anymore.
In other news, I will also go over the polls in the next few days, post new polls as well as explain a few of my future plans for some things. There will be a public preview of this month’s Patreon mini-set posted tomorrow. Any comments/feedback on the new set would be appreciated.
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.)
Hi. I know what we’re all thinking; that I wasn’t gonna make it today again. Funny story though, I actually managed to. A LOT of pain went into making every part of this set but I think it’s good considering that I probably shouldn’t have been able to make it at all during this time. I had to make some cuts in the second scene due to my hardware limitations, but I think it still turned out good. I really did get this done before Patreon finished processing the other payments… I’m happily surprised. The set is 38 images with one alternate ending image for the unused stuff category on Patreon. The set itself will be sent out to patrons whenever payments finish processing… along with the Patreon polls for the month. There are four previews below, two story and two clean images. I am going to have to wait and post the other big thing tomorrow; I am too tired to type it today. If you want access to this new set and others before a few months from now, check out my Patreon page and support me! https://www.patreon.com/redleatherartMore support means better content and also that I can stop having to cut things that I want to put in because my hardware can’t do it.
The set entails Tabitha running into Salune while sort of looking for the missing elves and the two of them make a deal, which doesn’t quite work out as planned…
Hey. I started small and did the mini-set for the month, here is a public preview; the rest of the images stay on Patreon. It is five images of Helenya playing with an elven slave boy and it will get sent out at the start of next month to appropriate processed patrons. If you enjoy my work, please consider supporting me on Patreon to get early access to most of my work and even bonuses like these mini-sets; https://www.patreon.com/redleatherart. Everything put forward helps support me and make my work better! There are also the various special events that I plan to do next month (as long as my health permits). I have already posted to my Patrons about everything that I plan to do next month; so if you are deathly curious there is that too. Some things will be public, some things will be Patron only.
I hope to finish chapter six in the coming days but this is still really rough to work on right now. I have a week left; I should be fine to finish it.
EDIT 8/25: Final renders for RTL 6 are halfway done… I may be able to get more done today, I will see. Having some memory issues with rendering stuff from the second scene… have to cut back a bit to fix it.
EDIT 8/26: Final renders for RTL 6 are at least 2/3 done, probably more but I can’t say until I see the final count. I fixed the memory issues and the rest of the renders should be smooth sailing whenever I can get well enough (in less pain) to finish them.
Hey again. I have had a shitty last three weeks; and have been in horrible pain for much of it. I was unable to leave my house for weeks and only now am I mostly better, but not still entirely. I tried to suck it up and get this done if possible, but that did not work at all and this is simply not going to happen right now. I have gotten about two nights sleep in the past three weeks, and I am still not totally better yet. These two things prevent me from focusing in any way when working on the scene. Despite my best efforts, I simply can’t finish this chapter this month, and there is no way to be sure when I will be able to finish it next month. I would like to finish it as soon as possible but if I force myself to do it now I might make my situation worse and the overall product would likely be crappy. These are both very bad things. I want this to be as good as I can make it with what I have, and to do that I need more time. This may all change at any time if I suddenly start sleeping again and get better faster or if things get worse somehow (again). Long story short; I have no idea when RTL chapter six will be done, (it isn’t really up to me) it may end up being next month’s main image set due to my illness/unforeseen circumstances.
Anyway, I will do the best that I can in terms of getting this done as early as possible; but in the mean time please continue to vote in the polls, they help me a lot and votes are still kind of low, I will likely replace the current polls either mid-month or whenever RTL chapter six is done if it is before that. Oh and here is the early public preview of the first scene for this upcoming set. It was going well before everything went to shit, and hopefully it will turn out great.
