Status update: 1/19

Hey. It’s been two weeks since my last post here, so I wanted to stop by and let you all know I am still around, etc. – though not much has gotten done since last time in terms of this project; I have had a bunch of real life stuff to do, and the weather has not been cooperating. (I am right in the middle of a big segment of rain or something every other day for like two weeks, along with temperature swings.)

We will see what happens in terms of content in the near future, but I really have no idea what may/may not get done this month (or next month) – there is a bunch of stuff I want to do, but little time/energy/motivation to do it. On that note, more votes in the polls on the right/previous post would be appreciated. Maybe I will just suddenly feel like making something, as used to happen much of the time – but I have just felt out of it in general for at least half a year now. No set schedules now though, which is quite nice – but I will likely still try and do side renders every other month at the minimum,,, though even that is not set in stone.

As before, if you want to help support/motivate me in making more content, you can check out my redone Patreon page here (as I said, more changes likely coming soon): 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.

First polls of 2023!

Hi everyone. I am back to start of 2023 with the results from the polls from last month.

The first poll asked how important the setup/concept of an adult scene/image was to you, and most people seem to lean towards “Very Important.”, with a few in the middle as well – nobody voted against it, so it does indeed seem to be important to you guys… which is good to confirm. (I tend to agree that it is usually very important – but there are always exceptions to any rule.) The other poll asked how much cum you prefer in adult images/scenes, and the answers to this were all over the place – almost everything got a vote, with two for “A decent amount.”… so I guess that technically won, but this poll seems like more of a draw due to the wide split. (Honestly not quite sure what I prefer here – likely usually around the middle to low area though; but honestly it mostly depends on the scene/situation… like a gangbang would excuse/allow a lot more cum than a one on one scene, so that may work better. When I see super excessive/crazy amounts of cum/sweat in a scene/image, it usually seems gross and/or cartoony – and I like to keep my content fairly grounded/realistic overall; though I do tend to embellish things a bit for entertainment reasons, of course. I also have more of a personal preference for creampies over bukakke/body shots… so that also may explain it. )

As for the new polls, those are (or should be below) – the first asks what you guys who votes are most looking forward to seeing from me in 2023; and the second one asks how you feel about adult CYOA (choose your own adventure) stories – which may seem a bit out of nowhere, but it is one of the many ideas I have considered over the years… and one of the few things that I have not yet polled about after eight years. Do please vote in those and let me know what you prefer here, and hopefully there will be a decent number of votes again, as was the case last month! Thanks again to all of you who voted last month, by the way. 🙂

Not much else to update you all on yet – though that is also due to my having my migraines for three days straight now… but we will see what the rest of the month has in store; there is plenty of time left, and with no strict schedules, the possibilities are endless… so who knows what can happen. I hope to be back with some kind of update in a week or two – but you know how that tends to go, so don’t be overly surprised if it takes a bit longer than that.

Merry Xmas all, LITC chapter five, “Rest and a Rescue” free release!

Yo. I am back once more this year with a present for all of you, as most long time fans/followers would likely expect today, here is my latest story set – now free for everyone; which works especially well since the recent effective death of my Patreon page… at least as it has been for seven years.

Thanks again to those of you who voted in the polls on the right, and if you have not yet done so please do that; and I wish all of you a Merry Xmas in advance (at least as of EST time) and hope you have a Merry Xmas and a Happy New Year. 🙂

Hopefully I can get enough time/motivation together to finally finish LITC 6 soon… although I have no clue what to do with it when that happens though – I still have to figure out my new plans since Patreon won’t let me post NSFW stuff anymore without sending them photo and government IDs… which is still insanely stupid and dangerous. I will be back early next year with new polls if nothing else – but we will see what happens.

Merry early Xmas, new side renders and gumroad coupon available!

Hey. I have returned with one brand new Xmas side render, and one older one that is technically new as far as non-patrons are concerned; so kind of two… maybe three, since the one older render has two versions. Sorry I don’t have more to post right now – but the weather has been a total mess, as I am sure many other Americans are aware of right now… especially on the northern east coast. That, combined with the messy reclassification of my Patreon earlier has left me with very little energy/drive – but I did at least get one new Xmas render done (as seen below); so at did at least accomplish what I aimed to, technically. I did also post that one older Patreon bonus render that I was forced to remove from my Patreon page a couple weeks back – no point in letting that go to waste; and there are still a couple more things like that for later on as well. (I wanted to do another side render, but I have been far too spent this past week for that.)

Also, as the title suggests – I have a new gumroad coupon for everyone, which I really wanted to put in/up since I skipped black friday this year… but the whole year has been a mess for me all around – with all kinds of changes to how I do pretty much everything related to this project; so it kind of fits that even fairly standard things are going a bit different in all kinds of ways.

Anyways, the code this year is: rlaxmas2022

And that will/should get you 40% off anything in my gumroad shop – so use it while you can! I will disable this code early on January 1st (EST) 2023, as per usual with these sales. (You have about a week; let me know if there are any issues.)

My gumroad page is of course, here: [https://gumroad.com/redleatherart]. And while there are preview images on there for the mini-sets, I  strongly encourage people to check my master mini-set catalog (here [https://redleatherart.com/wp/?page_id=2758]) to help get more information and proper/full previews for all of my mini-sets. 😀

Thanks to those of you who voted in the polls on the right, and if you have not yet done so please do that; and I wish all of you a Merry Xmas in advance (at least as of EST time) and hope you have a nice holiday. 🙂

Patreon page successfully reclassified; not sure about new details yet though.

Hi guys, sorry for the gap in posts but I have been busy this past week with this. As the title suggests, I have successfully gotten my patreon page changed to SFW – which means I can keep it for the time being. However, I am still trying to figure out what I can do in terms of tiers/rewards with this new page… if anything. I can only post the “simpler” things on here from now on – along with text updates; but that is just the way it has to be since Patreon changed their policy again… hopefully this works out somehow.

Not much to announce yet in terms of new stuff or other progress this month; just getting this reclassification mess done was the most important thing since the cutoff was the end of this year. It also took more out of me than I thought, since I had to physically check over 400 posts… (and delete a third of them or more) due to not being specifically told what the issue with my page was when I first applied to have it reclassified.  (I first applied last friday – and had to message them back twice, waiting a full weekday each time.)

It probably would have been easier to just give them my personal information instead of removing half my posts and reclassifying my page – but I am someone who actually stands up for what they believe; and I believe that is completely pointless bullshit that endangers all their NSFW creators  – and puts them all at risk of full identity theft for no valid reason… (they allege it was a demand by mastercard to help prevent abuse/underage content – but anyone doing those things would obviously just lie and use someone else’s ID, which makes it entirely pointless) so fuck that shit. Not like I had much of anything to lose, honestly – but even if I did, I just don’t see myself going along with that crap. (Being someone with integrity who actually stands up for what they believe has some drawbacks.) I hope other Patreon creators in the same position are doing ok, and that nothing bad happens… but giving out your personal information and a photo ID can never end positively – and potentially end very badly.

I hope to be back with some new side renders for the holidays if nothing else… but we will have to see exactly what happens in the coming weeks; the weather here is really bad right now, (so I can’t do much at the moment) and I hate to promise/suggest things that might not happen.

December 2022 polls.

Hey. I have returned with the poll results from last time, and some new polls – not much else to report on just yet.

Last time there were two polls – though one was up for two months. Regardless, the first poll asked if you were looking forward to new story sets, and those who voted seemed to be in favor, so that is nice at least. The other one was the character popularity poll – which seemed to have fairly predictable results; Helenya, Salune, and Zayla were the top favorites, which I expected… though Zayla got less votes than I had predicted. Regardless, it is good to know, and I thank those of you who voted in those polls.

As for new polls – there are two, one asks how much cum you prefer in adult images/scenes, and the other asks how important the setup/concept of an adult scene/image is to your enjoyment of it. (Fairly sure I have done similar polls in the distant past, but it has been a while – and there really is only so much you can poll for after 7-8 years of multiple polls per month.) Those are below and on the right, so do please vote in those and let me know what you like.

I still haven’t gone over my redone Patreon yet, I need to do that later this week and submit it for reclassification, but I have been too tired, etc. these past couple days. (Every part of that is depressing, and I couldn’t bring myself to do it yet.)

No idea when I will be back with something else… so much is up in the air right now, it is effectively impossible to even know if anything will get done this month. I will definitely try for Xmas side renders, as that is also a thing I have tended to usually for for whatever reason… but besides that, I don’t know. Most things just seem to be going fairly badly these past few months; but I will do what I can; at the very least I can definitively say that the idea of giving up on all this is just disgusting to me – so that is unlikely to happen anytime soon.  However, I do really need to get properly motivated again somehow – as I have so much that I want to do and so little time/energy/motivation right now… and some of that I can’t do too much about.

Patreon page neutered, further changes likely.

Hi again. Sorry about the slight gap in posts, but I have had a lot to do, and the weather has not been cooperative, which as most all of you probably know by now, that tends to give me horrific headaches. I don’;t have any new visual content for you guys right now, as I have just been to busy/stressed to make anything this month. Some of you may also have noticed that I didn’t bother with my usual black friday gumroad sale this month… and that is mostly just due to me still being totally out of it all month (I honestly forgot until late evening on black friday, and decided it was effectively too late by that point); but it also doesn’t help when I think back and remember that nobody really bothered getting anything most of the time anyway. I may do a gumroad sale for Xmas in December, not sure yet… but there is a whole lot about all of this that I am not sure of at the moment.

Quick slightly positive note, there were at least some votes in the polls this month, so thanks for that – but more is always good, so do please vote in the polls on the right if you have not already done so. Not sure if I will leave one up again, or do totally new ones next month… we will see what happens in a few days.

I will see what I can do next month – I hope to have a couple new side renders for Xmas… but we will see what happens. I don’t want to make any promises, as I have been trying to find the time/energy to finish LITC 6 for months and months now… and the past few months in particular have just been intensely draining on me for various reasons, despite me not making mini-sets anymore; life has just not been cooperative, and I constantly worry about so many things… it is just a mess. Additional side note – deviantart seems to have either shit the bed entirely or possibly malfunctioned, since effectively my entire DA page (including my favorites from other artists) is currently blanket labeled “Mature Content” when not logged in  – when most of it actually is not…? Really unsure wtf is going on there – as there has always been a flag when you submit any image to DA that marks it as such, (which seemed fair enough) but now they seem to have put in some trash algorithm or some such that apparently auto-flagged damn near everything for some retarded reason. Not that I thought much of DA anymore after the eclipse fiasco years back, (much like DAZ, DA was a nice site that got bought by malicious company and turned to the dark side) but this is just a new and intensely sad low for them… I hope it actually is a mistake, or they likely just sank their own battleship.

In other, also sad news, I have had to gut my old Patreon page as previously mentioned, and try to make it SFW – in order to continue using Patreon since I refuse to risk full identity theft for no valid reason. I am not even positive on the status of it just yet… since I cannot post anything NSFW anymore, and therefore cannot give out any real rewards per se, it is just a tip jar at the moment. (I wanted to make it a pay whatever you want tier, but that apparently isn’t an option.) I even removed the old commission deal tiers, since nobody ever bothered with them anyway. (I may bring them back if things turn up, not sure.) I may make additional tip tiers with slightly higher denominations, just to allow for more support if desired… not entirely sure yet – I am still trying to figure out my plan/options.

There has been a ton of stuff to think over with this, and most all of it is intensely depressing. (Still not sure what will even happen to my other content right now…) I will likely edit that page further next month, with different cost tiers of tips or something, but we will see what happens – a lot of this also depends on the Patreon content mods, and if they require me to wipe more stuff to declare my page SFW or not… but hopefully what I have already done is enough. (And hopefully it works at all… I was told it would, but that doesn’t always work out.)

Status update: 11/16

Hey. I wanted to stop by and post a quick status update, and let you all know that I am still here… even though I don’t have much to show/say just yet. I still haven’t updated my Patreon page yet either – mostly because I have had migraines for almost a week straight at this point due to the weather shifts/rain from the tropical storm coming through last friday. (Not much to be done about the weather, unfortunately.) Plus, I have another hike scheduled for this friday, and something else to do on Saturday… so I have just been preparing for that when I can. Next week is clear in theory – so maybe I can get something else done besides clearing out my Patreon page… but we will see what happens; I don’t like promising things that I am not certain will happen and/or be of quality.

Thanks for the votes in the current polls though – that is really nice to see, especially since almost nobody bothered last month for whatever reason. More votes are always appreciated though – so do vote in the polls on the right of the page if you haven’t yet. (They should also be in the post below.) I do refer to the poll results, and they do matter – so let me know what you think. 🙂

Likely the last chance for this – and not that this will even matter very, very soon… but 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

New November poll.

Hi again. I am back with one new poll for November – as I am leaving the character poll up for at least one more month. The old poll asked how people felt about Halloween, but nobody answered until like the day before or the day of… so I think that says more than the couple votes it got. The other poll from last time is staying for a bit longer, as I said above; but there is one new poll that asks if you are looking forward to future story sets… and you’ll never guess why that is up. (More motivation would be great… but after last month, I am not expecting much.) The current polls are also below for convenience.

Loading poll ...
Loading poll ...

As for my status, not much has changed since my last post… and I have another hike scheduled for Tuesday – hopefully this won’t drain me as much as the last one did. (It shouldn’t, allegedly.) No idea what may get done this month in terms of “content” – but I do really need to wipe through my Patreon page and do that at some point this month… (as allegedly next month is the deadline/cutoff – though I am not sure when) which will be as depressing as it is time consuming. I will try and post another status update in a week or so – but we will see what happens.

Not that this will even matter very soon, but 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

Happy Halloween, some new side renders posted!

Yo, Happy Halloween everyone. Sorry for the slight gap in posts again – but I decided against posting last week, as there wasn’t much to say yet… and the total votes in the polls here were intensely depressing. One of those things has not changed as of this post… which is definitely not great to see; but I do at least have two (three, kinda) new side renders for you all to see – mostly over on my DA/slushe pages, with the new Halloween one also posted below. Do note that the one render with just Helenya is an old Patreon exclusive render from like… 4(?) years ago – and I likely will have to delete it from my page soon, so I am choosing to post it elsewhere now. (With a handful of other things like it to be sprinkled in soon as well – but this one was Halloween themed, so here it is now.)

Quick, important note: I take the votes in the polls here on the right as a general interest gauge, and/or feedback – so when nobody votes, I find it quite hard to justify making much that month… which is in no small part why there is only one “new” Halloween render this time around, and why the third new render didn’t get finished in time. I have no idea why nobody voted this time around, but do please do that if you care, and/or want to see more of my work. I am already near rock bottom right now in terms of motivation, due to all the assorted factors going on – such as the effective/probable loss of my Patreon page… (not that I ever even made much on it anyway, which is possibly even more depressing) so if I feel nobody really cares about my work, there really isn’t much reason to make/post much anymore. Voting is free, and takes like 5 seconds – I really see no good reason for not voting; especially when both were going to be used in helping to decide what was supposed to be made that segment.

Not much else to say yet – I have not even really started trying to get my Patreon page re-sorted, or anything else with my various other pages; I have just been too busy/out of it. (That hike a week ago finished me off for a few days – my knees in particular hurt a fair bit from all the uphill parts.) I will probably be back with at least one new poll in a few days… but I am not even sure of that anymore. No clue when any other new content will get done; especially with my motivation near zero, in addition to my high fatigue. The plan was to try and finish the writing/composition for LITC 6; but that is not happening in the near future, based on how I feel today. Maybe things will improve near the end of November, and I can work on that… but I definitely have to go through all the posts on my Patreon page sometime in the next month, and “””fix””” all that crap – which is going to be all kinds of sad. However, I don’t have much of a choice, given Patreon’s upcoming nonsensical policy changes. (NSFW pages soon have to submit various “””proofs””” of ID, including a photo – everything someone would need to totally steal/assume your identity, just in order to exist… on top of the already existing rules of no public NSFW, etc.)

Lastly, 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 – I have no clue when you will be able to get the games again once I redo my Patreon, so now may be your only chance) 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
