Work schedule effectively abolished.

Hi all. As you can probably tell, I don’t have anything new ready yet; as I haven’t really had the time/energy to work on this stuff yet – this summer was just a fucking mess, and I am still having issues even trying to recover from it. However, I am going ahead with this announcement about tossing out my old schedule entirely – not quite sure of the exact details/plans of how I will proceed from this point forward yet… but that is also kind of the point.

First though – an “update” on the Patreon situation… there really isn’t one, because they have yet to get back to me after my latest reply last week. I think that my reply to their reply maybe got flagged as spam or something, since I never got one of their automated responses indicating that they even got it – so I sent another one two days ago, that has at least been acknowledged, as of yesterday… but not replied to. (I waited to post this until today, hoping they might reply yesterday, but… nope.) Knowing my luck, they will reply just after I post all these updates… but fuck it – I will deal with that later. I effectively know what the “best” and worst case scenarios are already; I just need to find out which is going to be forced upon me, since I refuse to endanger myself with their retarded forced identification crap for $20 a month.

Anyway, as mentioned above, I am totally getting rid of my old schedule, as things have basically only gotten worse this year, and I have had issues even keeping up with a mini-set every other month since the summer got into full swing and the shit hit the fan. What this means is that I am effectively adopting the schedule that most artists seem to have, which is that I will do whatever I can, whenever I can… which will hopefully lead to more/better content in the long term, once I recover from the past few months. (Hell, some of the highest income artists I have seen basically make just one image a month.) I have not exactly been able to try and actually rest/recover much yet though, due to real life crap that has been going on and the assorted messes related to the Patreon fiasco that is making this so much worse for me. (I also have to deal with the constant guilt/anxiety of not being able to get anything much done for this project in a few months now… but thinking about all that just makes it even worse still.)

I am not exactly abandoning the “mini” set idea either – those will likely just be very infrequent now. (Maybe for like holidays, or ideas I particularly like that don’t fit the main story arc… I dunno.) Originally, the plan with the mini-sets was for them to stay small (the first few were under a dozen renders) and it was mostly just a gimmick to get myself to constantly be making new stuff and trying new things with renders. However once I actually got good at making renders/scenes, they got really big and complicated, and that left me no time/energy to work on “main” content… which which is at least partially the reason why things are where they are today. It is worth noting though, that most of the reason my renders are as nice as they are now is due to the mini-sets… so it was definitely not a waste. (Not that things were really much better back when I was still doing the main sets or other stuff… but still.)

In the immediate term, I have no idea when I will get back to working on LITC 6, but at this moment, I am trying to get enough energy/motivation back just to do the October/Halloween side render stuff that I do every year in a couple weeks. I have no idea why that is/has been a thing, but I do want to keep that up if I can… so we will see what happens. The other thing some long-time fans may have been expecting around now is effectively delayed until after LITC 6… so again, no clues on that yet either.

As for the Patreon thing, it will likely either become just a tip jar, if I am forced to wipe the NSFW stuff from it; or effectively a tip jar with some tiered bonuses – as it kind of has been for a few months now. (I don’t yet know what I will/can do with my “regular” content if my NSFW Patreon has to be taken down… but that is a mess for another day.) This is of course presuming that I am able to keep my page up at all… but as far as I can tell now, that should at least be possible if I re-classify it – I hope.

I should be back in a few days to go over the polls, and/or post a more official update on the Patreon situation… if/when they ever get back to me. (Kind of hoping that I don’t have to redo my entire page and wipe all NSFW posts manually… but if that is my only option, so be it.) Other than that, I have no idea when anything else will get done – I really, really need to take a significant amount of time off to just recover, and nothing else. Aiming for Halloween side renders at the minimum in the next month… but we will see what happens. We have the remnants of a hurricane coming this way in the next few days… so things will likely be messy as it is; but hopefully it won’t be too bad.

Again, please vote in the polls on the right if you haven’t yet done so; they really do help.

To conclude, if there is any chance anyone out there would actually like to help support me and/or my work on all sorts of new content; and/or get access to one of my latest/best mini-sets, (this month gets a choice of any mini-set of choice for the middle $15 tier, and I currently plan to just have it remain like that for what little time my current Patreon page likely has left) like the remaining finished story sets, and larger versions of the completed animations I have made/posted, and/or the full games I have also made, (the micro VN and Salune’s Slave Training are still available via my Patreon page; not sure what else may come in the future at this point…) check out my Patreon page!: https://www.patreon.com/redleatherart

Any interest, comments, follows, likes, votes, or support really does help. It is hard to keep making new stuff when nobody seems to care. Following me on DA/slushe/pixiv/twitter/whatever doesn’t cost anything – and that all does help spread the word about my work… so please consider doing some of that if you haven’t already.

Status update: 9/18

Hey again. I don’t actually have a major update yet, as I am still thinking through all kinds of crap regarding this project – and I am really trying to get my plans straight before making any major announcements. (As the coming changes will likely be major…) I just wanted to post here and give a small update in the mean time. (I do also want to post updates else where soon… but I want to get my plans situated first; not much reason to post such a basic update everywhere.)

I do not yet know when I will have new side renders or anything ready, as I was once again quite busy/tired this past week… and still just out of it overall; but I am hoping to have more time/energy/drive to do whatever I can in these last two weeks of the month. (I still want to focus on LITC 6 if I can… but that is a big if; especially as I am still effectively planning to scrap my old schedule entirely – but again, more on that soon.) Sorry to the few of you who actually check this page regularly, and/or care about my work… but I am just spent at the moment – the past two months really just sucked for me; and now it seems that assorted other factors are complicating things, such as the whole Patreon situation.

Speaking of the Patreon situation – based on the information they have given/posted, I currently think that I may be able to wipe the NSFW stuff off my page and turn it into a tip jar or something… but that is a maybe; hopefully I can confirm that this coming week. (I still don’t think it is a good idea to give out dangerous levels of personal information for no real/valid reason; so again, I have no plans to go along with their new “””age verification””” crap they are soon going to force on all 18+ pages.)

Also, please vote in the polls on the right if you haven’t yet done so; they really do help.

To finish off this post,  if there is any chance anyone out there would actually like to help support me and/or my work on all sorts of new content; and/or get access to one of my latest/best mini-sets, (this month gets a choice of any mini-set of choice for the middle $15 tier, and I currently plan to just have it remain like that for what little time my current Patreon page likely has left) like the remaining finished story sets, and larger versions of the completed animations I have made/posted, and/or the full games I have also made, (the micro VN and Salune’s Slave Training are still available via my Patreon page; not sure what else may come in the future at this point…) check out my Patreon page!: https://www.patreon.com/redleatherart

New September 2022 polls.

Yo everyone. Sorry this post is a bit later than usual, but I took the holiday weekend off, and I am just now trying to get back into everything. (Whatever that means at this point…) My dental issues have all been resolved (for the moment) – so that is better at least; but the weather is acting up a bit right now (humid, rainy)… so we will see how that goes. I am kind of just sick of everything at the moment; it has been super draining to just deal with all the complications popping up lately, let alone work on LITC 6. Even doing things that are supposed to be relaxing feels a bit meh – fairly sure I need to step back a bit before getting back to major work on render stuff. (I know some of you probably think I just haven’t been doing anything; but I have been trying when I can – just mostly failing and/or treading water… even I can’t deny that I am too spent/tired to make progress right now; the last two months have been quite crappy for me overall.)

I am still trying to figure out what is going on with the Patreon forced age verification garbage – but as things stand, I may have to suspend my page at the end of the year if things don’t change. As previously noted, I am not overly concerned for a handful of reasons… but it still seems like a crappy move on their part. I will likely have more updates on all this a bit later.

In other news, I am currently planning to abolish my old schedule system entirely, and make mini-sets rather infrequently when I am particularly feeling the need to (holidays, and/or every few months maybe… I don’t even know); and instead just do whatever I can, whenever I can – while focusing on side renders and story sets… with no specified goals/time limits. I am not 100% certain on this plan yet… but I am about 88% certain. Something has to change, as things are just not working out – nor have they been for many years now; at the very least this new plan should be a lot easier on me… and hopefully lead to better quality renders in theory. I still want to make renders and NSFW stuff – so I am taking rather drastic measures to try and get back on a better track with this project, and hopefully get things to a more sustainable place. More on all this later as well – when I make a more official announcement… this is just a heads up and/or advance preview for those out there who actually read these posts. (Someone seems to… I think.)

As for the polls – there were two last time, one asked about how I should sort a side render gallery, and the other asked about your favorite type of hybrid character. The character poll was no contest, unsurprisingly – and those who cared to vote overwhelming prefer catgirls… as I also do. 😀 As for the other poll, one person suggests sorting by character, and the other wanted me to sort by fetish… so that is still somewhat up in the air; as I think I would have to make too many galleries (manually) if I did it by fetish, but that does seem like a good plan – I will have to look into that a bit more later.

There are also two new polls up – and they are below and on the right; so please vote in those. The first poll is new and asks how you feel about onomatopoeias (sound effect bits, i.e. – *smack*, *whoosh*, *spurt*, etc.) in adult comics/story sets; and the second is a repeat of a very old poll, asking how much clothing you prefer in your adult content. Do please let me know what you think of those – especially the first one… as it will be relevant quite soon.

Also, some longer time fans of mine may realize I haven’t mentioned one other thing that they have have been expecting around now – that is because there is only one real option left there; and I don’t plan on getting into that until I finish LITC 6 (for obvious reasons, if you even know what I am talking about here)… and even then, I am not totally sure when that other thing may get done. (Or perhaps even if, at this stage…)

Finally,  if there is any chance anyone out there would actually like to help support me and/or my work on all sorts of new content; and/or get access to one of my latest/best mini-sets, (this month gets a choice of any mini-set of choice for the middle $15 tier, and I currently plan to just have it remain like that for what little time my Patreon likely has left) like the remaining finished story sets, and larger versions of the completed animations I have made/posted, and/or the full games I have also made, (the micro VN and Salune’s Slave Training are still available via my Patreon page; not sure what else may come in the future at this point…) check out my Patreon page!: https://www.patreon.com/redleatherart

Status update: 8/25 – Compounding issues, probable Patreon problem.

Hi again. So things have continued to be quite messy on my end – I got that root canal late last week, (with notable pain beforehand) and then had the base crown work done the day after, which left me really out of it for several days. Then today, I woke up with a wicked headache from the weather again… so shit has not improved much overall, and I am basically back where I started. As you can likely surmise, I have therefore not made much progress with renders and/or LITC 6 since my last post – so sorry about that, it will almost certainly get bumped into next month; but unfortunately, I think I have a bigger problem on hand right now.

For those who are not yet aware, I got an email from Patreon a couple days back that they are planning to very soon force all 18+ creators on Patreon to submit government photo IDs and pictures – allegedly at the demands of mastercard, their payment processor. This is a similar situation to a year or so ago when OnlyFans tried to ban adult content, again – allegedly at the behest of their payment processor… but at least they backed down from that since it would have destroyed them, kind of like when tumblr banned adult content. Allegedly, this is being done to fight ‘illegal content’ – but as most of you will realize, their plans will have a very, very minimal effect on that… while endangering/irritating everyone else; just like most video game DRM.

I could easily do it of course – but this is just the latest in a long line of steps against 18+ creators that Patreon has done… and honestly, I consider this dangerous and gross invasion of privacy the last straw. I never made much on Patreon anyway, but if their plans do not change, I will likely have to permanently suspend my page there; I cannot abide this sort of thing just on principle, really – it is just so stupid and dangerous of them to require this. (Or, it is just cowardly and weak of them to bend over for the credit card companies so easily and completely.) I did send them a long email today outlining how stupid and dangerous this decision was – but I don’t expect them to change their minds just because of me… however, if a ton of people also complain – then maybe they might go back on it, much like google and onlyfans did. The real problem with all this is that even if they do go back on it now, they have laid their cards/plans on the table – and it is effectively just a matter of time until they do something else to marginalize (or straight up ban) NSFW creators again. So while I would likely stay if they change their minds, I am definitely going to accelerate my plans to cultivate other options.

To be extra real with you all about this new requirement – when I first read about it, I was actually far more concerned for some of the artists I support on Patreon, rather than myself… which I suppose you can take several different ways. I have long heard other NSFW creators warning against leaning too hard on Patreon, etc (or any one thing) – for this very reason… and that is partly why I have my gumroad page, and others; plus, I have been considering listing some of my stuff elsewhere if need be. (To get more exposure, if nothing else.) Strangely, I just don’t feel overly concerned for myself about this – likely because I have little left to lose there, and I never made much with it anyway.

I have no idea what I will do if I am forced to suspend my Patreon page – but I can make my other content available via gumroad if nothing else… at least in the mean time. (All the mini-sets are on there anyway.) I was already in the middle of a fairly radical rethink of my whole project here, primarily because what I have been doing just has not really been working out, for whatever reason – so this actually may not change much.

In the mean time, I will do what I can for LITC 6 whenever I am next able to work on it properly – but as noted above, I can almost guarantee that it will get pushed into next month; for quality checks if nothing else. (I have forced myself to do a lot lately, when I have been far from 100% – so that means I have to go back later and go over it again…) As for next month’s Patreon thing, I will just have it be a choice of whatever mini-set for the middle tier again… if it is even still up at that point; I am not 100% sure what the situation is with this forced ID crap – but I have no plans to do it.

As mentioned last time – very low votes in the polls so far… so please vote in those; they are both things that I would very much like feedback on, as I have plans for both soon. 🙂

Ending note (which may soon no longer be relevant) if there is any chance anyone out there would actually like to help support me and/or my work on all sorts of new content; and/or get access to one of my latest/best mini-sets, (this month gets a choice of any mini-set of choice for the middle tier, not sure what next month will be yet… I may change things and still not do a new mini-set – not sure yet) like the remaining finished story sets, and larger versions of the completed animations I have made/posted, and/or the full games I have also made, (the micro VN and Salune’s Slave Training are still available via my Patreon page; not sure what else may come in the future at this point…) check out my Patreon page!: https://www.patreon.com/redleatherart

Status update: 8/15 – Dental issues.

Hey all. I wanted to drop in with a status update, since it has been a while since my last post. Long story semi-short, the weather has been much better for a few days – and is allegedly going to stay that way for a while, which is good. However, I had a filling done back at the start of this month – but then it was bothering me, so I needed it redone last friday; which did not fix the issue… (and kind of caused a different one) so apparently the only real option is a root canal – and I need to go in for that within the next week or so as well. So… while some things are better, that have been issues still; but I hope that will get sorted out soon.

There is still a good two weeks left in the month, in which I really hope to get some of this work done. No idea what will actually happen this month, though – as I have said before; but I am currently planning on putting whatever time/energy I have into finishing LITC 6, rather than new side renders at the moment. (It’s been in progress for ages, due to assorted factors – and I really just need to get that done so I can see what direction would be best after that.)

Anyway, I hope to be back soon with another update – and with something more visual before the end of the month.

Also – very low votes in the polls so far… so please vote in those; they are both things that I would very much like feedback on, as I have plans for both soon. 🙂

Final note – if there is any chance anyone out there would actually like to help support me and/or my work on all sorts of new content; and/or get access to one of my latest/best mini-sets, (this month gets a choice of any mini-set of choice for the middle tier, not sure what next month will be yet… I may change things and still not do a new mini-set – not sure yet) like the remaining finished story sets, and larger versions of the completed animations I have made/posted, and/or the full games I have also made, (the micro VN and Salune’s Slave Training are still available via my Patreon page; not sure what else may come in the future at this point…) check out my Patreon page!: https://www.patreon.com/redleatherart

August 2022 polls?

Yo. So I hoped to be back earlier, and for the first two days of August it seemed like things were getting better – but now it is doing the super humid/stormy crap again. Besides that, I am still super out of it overall from all the assorted crap that has been going on… so much so that I am still making weird typing mistakes that I rarely used to. (I have had humidity/pressure migraines nearly every day for almost a full month now – and it will likely take a while to recover from all that and a few other things that have happened recently.) I have a whole bunch of crap that I want to do this month, but I need to be able to work on it properly – without causing myself significant pain… and that is just not going to happen right now. (Mostly just trying to think of new, good side renders at the moment.) No clue what may get done this month – but I will do whatever I can; I am just trying to post regular updates here to let you all know I am still around, etc.

Anyway – last time there were two polls; the first asked about major plot developments – and all who voted were in favor of major changes, which is what I plan/hope to do down the line… so that works well. 🙂 The second prior poll asked about what you guys wanted to see in an upcoming short story – and most votes were for “Funny/wacky incidents with my characters“, with a bit of interest for high intensity special events, and more extreme/darker stuff. This also more or less lines up with what I have planned to try out for the next story – whenever I can get the time/ability to write in large amounts again after I finish LITC 6. (Theoretically the weather has to return to normal eventually…) Thanks so much to all of you who voted – and it is good to know that my plans line up with what those of you who care enough to vote want. 😀

This time, there are once again new polls, as you can likely see below and on the right! The first asks what you guys think would be the best way to sort/separate renders into side render galleries here on the site, as I am still not entirely certain what the best plan there is – and the second just asks which type of the given hybrid girl types is your favorite. So… please let me know what you prefer with both of these – thanks in advance. Also, for those who made it this far, I may still do a gumroad sale of some sort a bit later this month, and/or early next month; we will really just have to wait and see what else ends up happening/getting done before then though. No idea when I will be back with another update, or what it will be; we will just have to see what happens – I hope you are all having nicer weather than I am.

As always, please vote in these polls – it takes like 5 seconds; and those do really help me know what people think/want, and it helps show that people care! 😀

Status update: 7/28 – Weather Issues.

Hi, everyone. So as some of you may have seen over on my Patreon page, things have been a bit messy since my last update here, and I figured that I should just go ahead and post another update now, given how shitty the weather has been the past week and a half or so. I am sure many of you are aware of the heat wave, and other crap weather patterns that has been going on – which combined with the high humidity and constant storms here is the worst possible thing for my headaches. For the past week and a half or so, I have been effectively unable to get any major work on all this done… and today is no different. This past weekend my head hurt so much, all day – that I couldn’t do much of anything at all, work or not. (I have had to resort to organizing and/or cleaning stuff at times, since when this is particularly bad I can’t even look at a screen.)

Usually when I get these weather migraines, it gets better once the sun goes down – which is when I tend to do most of my work anyway… but for whatever reason this time things are the opposite – which is a major problem. I know this is hard to explain to people who don’t have issues like this, but just to illustrate – right now, I have a mild headache and I feel like I got hit in the face with a brick (sinuses, probably – though my ears are also having issues)… and that is without me doing anything to make it worse. When the sun goes down, and/or if I try to do much of anything interactive/substantial with the computer, it gets much worse for whatever reason. Even just sitting here and typing this for a few minutes, I can feel my eyes and head hurt more – this humidity/rain is just screwing me over something awful. This is the worst/weirdest weather all year – maybe for a few years; I can’t recall having this problem for such a drawn out period… but there just isn’t anything else I can do. I have been taking excedrin migraine every day for a while now just to function on a general level – but that can only do so much.

Long story semi-short, LITC 6 will almost certainly be pushed back into next month (side render month anyway) – which is for the best at this point. I will still see what I can do in the few days that are left this month – but I am not going to rush things and make myself miserable (and/or hurt myself) just to try and make an arbitrary deadline I set for myself that got blown out of the water by insane weather. (Fairly sure I won’t get the chance to do much regardless.) Apologies, but this is way past anything I have control over – and as noted above, I have been unable to do much at all for a decent while now. Oh, that that one NSFW side render isn’t done yet either; especially since I had planned to put it and the other aside two weeks ago, as mentioned back then… but we will see what happens next month. (Further irony – it literally started pouring outside the minute I posted this.)

Also, there are a decent number of votes, but final reminder – please do vote in the polls on the right and/or in the below post if you have not yet done so – those do really help me know what people think/want, and it helps show that people care! 😀

As I always end these with – if there is any chance anyone out there would actually like to help support me and/or my work on all sorts of new content; and/or get access to one of my latest/best mini-sets, (this month gets a choice of any mini-set of choice for the middle tier, as well next month as an exception to the schedule) like the remaining finished story sets, and larger versions of the completed animations I have made/posted, and/or the full games I have also made, (the micro VN and Salune’s Slave Training are still available via my Patreon page; not sure what else may come in the future at this point…) check out my Patreon page!: https://www.patreon.com/redleatherart

Status update: 7/15

Hey. I don’t have much to report yet, but I wanted to stop by with an update, as it has been a while since my last post. I almost have one new side render done, unless I find something else to add/fix – and we will see what else I can work in; but I plan to dive back into LITC 6 soon – and put most of what I have left into that, in hopes of finally finishing it. When that happens, I will likely just post whatever else I have in terms of side stuff, unless I am really close to getting something else done. (I do also want to update my pixiv/redbubble again soon… but I have so much to do as it is – not sure I can/will get to that this month, but we will see.)

I also have to fight tooth and nail to resist going back and fixing/adjusting stuff I see in the renders of LITC 6 now… as it has been a year since I made them, and I have changed/learned a few things since then… but it is all likely stuff nobody else would even notice. (Artists are almost always their own worst critics… some of you know what I mean by that.) This is going to be a bit of a mess for all sorts of reasons – but I have fully adjusted my schedule to hopefully get this thing done at last… and we will see how that goes; but there are more renders in this set than any other story set as far as I remember. (Over 80 at the moment.)

Also – please do vote in the polls on the right and/or in the below post if you have not yet done so – those do really help me know what people think/want, and it helps show that people care. 🙂

As per usual… if there is any chance anyone out there would actually like to help support me and/or my work on all sorts of new content; and/or get access to one of my latest/best mini-sets, (this month gets a choice of any mini-set of choice for the middle tier, as well next month as an exception to the schedule) like the remaining finished story sets, and larger versions of the completed animations I have made/posted, and/or the full games I have also made, (the micro VN and Salune’s Slave Training are still available via my Patreon page; not sure what else may come in the future at this point…) check out my Patreon page!: https://www.patreon.com/redleatherart

The July 2022 polls.

Hi guys. I have come back with the poll results from last time and two new polls – as per usual at the beginning of the month. There were actually a decent number of votes this latest time, which I do really appreciate… presuming that some of this was not just one person repeat voting for the same thing.

Anyway, last time there were two polls – the first asked how long you prefer your erotic stories; and most people preferred mid-length, around give pages. A decent number of people also preferred very long, with double that length. Interestingly, nobody voted for the two shortest options. Regardless, this is good to know, and I would like to do something a bit more in depth at some point in the near future – but as I have said… it is really hard to find time and/or motivation at this stage. The second poll asked what your preferred plot to sex balance was in adult stories – and unsurprisingly, most people preferred a full balance of both… with a decent number of people preferring mostly sex after that. (With one stray vote for mostly plot at the far end.) This was basically what I expected; and likely what would have happened anyway – so we will see what happens when the time comes. I will keep these in mind, though I may not have the time/energy to write quite as much as people may want if/when I get the chance to.

As for the July polls – those are below, and over on the right of this page… so please check those out and vote in them to let me know your preferences here as well. Both are repeat of polls from not that long ago that got very few votes, but both are quite relevant to the last two, and/or upcoming stuff. The first asks what type of scenario you would like to see a short adult story from me made about. The second poll then asks what your preferences are in relation to major plot developments in story sets. I am reposting these since they got extremely few votes several months back – but I would really like answers to these if possible.

I will do what I can in the coming week – but the weather is supposed to be “Dangerously Humid” (80%+ humidity), and stormy for the rest of this week… so I am pretty screwed already. I did also go and post the side stuff that I currently have to slushe as well – so that is up now too. I will see what else I can get done in the near future. Hopefully I can work more on the remaining side renders soon – but that may go into next week… and knowing how things have gone these past few months, it almost certainly will.

So… if there is any chance anyone out there would actually like to help support me and/or my work on all sorts of new content; and/or get access to one of my latest/best mini-sets, (this month gets a choice of any mini-set of choice for the middle tier, as well next month as an exception to the schedule) like the remaining finished story sets, and larger versions of the completed animations I have made/posted, and/or the full games I have also made, (the micro VN and Salune’s Slave Training are still available via my Patreon page; not sure what else may come in the future at this point…) check out my Patreon page!: https://www.patreon.com/redleatherart

Any interest, comments, follows, likes, votes, or support really does help. It is hard to keep making new stuff when nobody seems to care. Following me on DA/slushe/pixiv/twitter/whatever doesn’t cost anything – and that all does help spread the word about my work… so please consider doing some of that if you haven’t already.

 

Some new side stuff posted, schedule change for July.

Hi again. So I was mostly correct, in that I would not get all the renders I was working on finished by this point – and therefore I am making an executive decision and changing my plans for next month partly as a result of that. Long story semi short, I have tested my new Patreon schedule for six months now… and as of me writing this, there is currently no one left on the mini-set tier; so… that doesn’t really inspire any confidence, and/or make me really feel like doing another one in July. However, I have an alternate/better(?) plan prepared… although this is a bit sooner than I was planning to do this if the need arose. (I was really hoping/planning on getting a lot more done for this project this month… but the weather has been crap – currently a three-day code orange air quality alert active.)

I have gone ahead and posted the three (four, including the one alternate) new side renders that are done though to DA (I have extra crap to post to slushe since I am behind with those… I will try and do that in the coming days) – including one of the really nice ones that I did finish, as well as the one request I got back when I asked a few months ago. I also posted the second preview from mini-set 89. Hopefully those who read this and/or check my pages like those… I never really know. I will try and finish/fix the other renders as soon as possible, and post what remains when whatever gets done is done. (One I just don’t like enough, the others I needed more time with.)

My current/new plan for July is to finish the other side renders I am working on in the next week or two, and then do whatever I can to finally finish the compilation/writing for LITC 6 next month instead of working on a new mini-set. (Life and the weather has not cooperated this past month or so… but I think I may as well just buck the format to get this thing finished, if that is what it takes.) I will just have the middle Patreon tier be a choice of whatever mini-set you want again… and at this moment, this is a one off exception from my updated schedule. However – if support continues to stay low, then something else has to change… and cutting back on mini-sets again is likely part of what would have to come next.

We will see what happens in the coming month or two – but things are effectively at the lowest point possible right now; which I shouldn’t have to explain is bad. (Yes, I know that there is a recession, and that I have been running late with the side renders, etc… but still.) It really gets hard to keep making things when nobody cares… and it doesn’t cost anything to vote, like, or comment. I’ll be back in a few days to go over the polls – no idea when the other stuff will get done; I’ll do what I can, as I have for… almost eight years now.

So… if there is any chance anyone out there would actually like to help support me and/or my work on all sorts of new content; and/or get access to one of my latest/best mini-sets, (this month gets a choice of any mini-set of choice for the middle tier, as well next month as an exception to the schedule) like the remaining finished story sets, and larger versions of the completed animations I have made/posted, and/or the full games I have also made, (the micro VN and Salune’s Slave Training are still available via my Patreon page; not sure what else may come in the future at this point…) check out my Patreon page!: https://www.patreon.com/redleatherart
