RTL chapter eight, “Summoning Magic” free release!

Hey. As hinted at last week, here is the free release of RTL chapter eight, which features Helenya having some fun with a summoned dire wolf. The set is 42 images, each with clean and story versions. It’s an interesting and fun set, different from many of the others in the RTL series due to the beast/”monster” content. Quick side note, there is a poll on my deviantart page as well as here; so vote in those if you haven’t already! I am currently working on the new DA images for this month, and hope to have that up toward the end of the week; after which I will work on the animation for this month. I will likely post again either late this week or early next week with an update so check back then!

So the download link is below, for those interested; and the previews are re-posted below for convenience. (The password is still redleatherart) Remember to check out my Patreon page and consider supporting me if you like my work and you want to help me make more/better content and/or want access to it early (among other things)! Everything put forward helps. There are also likely to be a fair few patreon-only polls and such in the coming months; so this is a good time to get in if you want to have input on/previews for what I work on after next month. https://www.patreon.com/redleatherart

RTL chapter eight, “Summoning Magic” done!

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.

RTL 8 public early preview!

Hi again, happy holidays and a happy new year to all of you! Here is an updated early public preview of RTL 8. It should be fairly obvious what is likely to happen based on the image here, but as mentioned a while back; the working title for this chapter is “Summoning Magic”. The set features Xan, Helenya, and at least one of Xan’s many magic summons. I also did not give away too much in the tags for this post this time to keep some things a surprise for when the set is done. As mentioned in the last post, I am still not totally sure when that will be; I am still hoping for the end of the month, but that is seeming less and less likely. (I have been busy with the holidays and physical therapy twice a week among other things.)

I will do the best that I can as I always try to, but I do not want to compromise the quality of the set just to get it done faster/on time and/or hurt myself in the process. As I mentioned to my Patrons, I likely should have delayed this month’s main set due to the massive technical upgrade that I went through earlier this month; and I may still have to do that if this doesn’t make a lot of progress in the next few days. I do have a fair bit of spare time in the coming days though, so anything is still possible. As I think I mentioned here before, all of these assorted delays should pay off in the long run; either by getting me back in shape to work on things more or by getting used to me newer machine to make better/fancier stuff. It will obviously take a few sets for me to get used to/the hang of the new machine and it;s enhanced capabilities. Anyway, I will post again next week with news regarding RTL 8, and whether or not it will be done this month or next.
