Early 2021 Patreon changes, and that new special Helenya render!

Hi again everyone – I know this is a bit later than I was planning/hoping for… but I think the renders (I made a nude alternate, because why not) below will help justify that. πŸ˜€

First off, though – the Patreon changes; which are not major, but I am hoping that they will help a bit… especially as things improve for everyone in the coming year. I changed the two mid-high tiers on my Patreon to now focus on giving old mini-sets as an extra reward… with the option of getting a standard commission instead, for the second highest. All the tiers have been renamed as well – but that was also a long time coming. The main change that I hope will go a long way is that I have put in a special, fallback extra to the $8 tier (and only that tier); which will be available any month where I do not post a new story set, or whatever to that tier… which has been the case for well over a year by this point. I know I really should have put this in sooner – but everything just went off the rails during this past year or so… and it sort of just got buried under everything else that I wanted/planned/tried to do. Plus, I honestly have been planning/trying to do the next story set for six months or so now; but I just never could find the time. That special, extra new fallback being that $8 Patrons can choose any one mini-set from the given selection to receive that month, as a bonus of sorts. (The current selection is my first 50 mini-sets… but that will likely expand over time; and/or have temporary exceptions/specials.) I think this is how things will be for a while, though… but there may be some minor edits in the coming months – there is no way to tell just yet.

For a bit of context as to why this special render (and the nude alternate) took a while – I chose to go ahead and do something that is as dangerous as it is boring… and yet very necessary; which is going over all the materials on my characters. The primary reason for this is my moving my runtime folder to a new drive, and that fucking up all of my previously saved Octane materials. The other part of it is a long and confusing story for people who don’t do 3D work, but effectively several (mostly minor) things on many of my characters have been improperly configured for a while now… (I have noticed several little things over the past year or so – and fixed them when it was a problem; but now I know what two things in particular tend to be causing it… and somehow it was just auto-configured wrong) and I have to edit their main character files to fix it. However, this runs the risk of something unintended/weird happening – and/or something getting corrupted. (I know that sounds silly, but I have actually had it happen twice now already – and I didn’t even go fiddling with the files at the time… it just happened on it’s own somehow; and the second time, I had to effectively remake the character to fix it… it was truly corrupted.)

As Helenya won the special poll for the first promo render of 2021, I did her first… after backing up her main files, of course. I think everything went quite well – and even though this took a fairly long time, it is simply necessary to finally go through everything – and make some minor adjustments too. Looking at the resulting renders after her corrections, I think it was worth it… but I admit part of this is me understanding advanced lighting a bit better than I used to years ago as well. So… things should be slightly different, and yet overall much better in upcoming renders – and that includes the xmas elf mini-set I am still working on. (Which will be a while still.) Those special renders are below, so check those out! I hope you all enjoy them. πŸ˜€

Sooo… if anyone out there would like to help support me and/or my work on all sorts of new content; and/or perhaps even get access to several of these mini-sets and/or lots of other rewards too, like the other 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… and I am doing what I can on the new game with whatever time I may be able to spare – if any.) Regardless, check out my updated Patreon page!: https://www.patreon.com/redleatherart

Black Friday 2020 sale/gumroad discount code!

Hi again – I hope you all had a nice and safe Thanksgiving… for those of us that celebrate it. The last(?) batch of renders for my newest mini-set is currently going, (and the total is already over 50) and hopefully by the time that is all done, I will have finished that short story that goes with it as well… (likely Saturday, I am going to guess it won’t be ready by later today… just based on prior experiences this year) but – I came by to post about my black friday gumroad sale, and give that code out to non-patrons now. (My patrons got it a few days early.) 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 the master catalog up top (or here [https://redleatherart.com/wp/?page_id=2758]) to help get more information and proper/full previews for all of my mini-sets. πŸ˜€

The discount/sale code for this year is: rlablackfriday2020
And that will/should get you 40% off anything in my gumroad shop – but let me know if it isn’t working right for some reason. (I think it should be…) I will disable the code early on December 1st (EST), like last year – so use it while you can! (You have basically four days.)

This is the highest public discount I have offered for my gumroad page so far – and the only one I plan to offer in the foreseeable future… so if you want to get any/some of my older mini-sets, now is likely your best chance.

Of course, I would deeply appreciate any and all support, should anyone choose to buy anything, and as always – the newest mini-sets that are not on my gumroad yet are still available over on my Patreon page. Anyway, I should be back in a day or two with that new short story, and a small status update. The polls on the right could also use more votes… as always. See you all soon.

New June polls, and my Patreon special offer returns!!!

Hey again! I am here with the poll results from last time, and some new polls, as well as to announce the return of my Patreon special offer! The special offer details are below – but before that, the polls.

Last time I asked if people preferred recurring, main characters or one off side characters, and unsurprisingly most people preferred main characters – which works well with what I usually do. πŸ™‚ The other poll asked what is the best finish for an adult scene… and all but one vote cast was for the creampie finish – the other one was for the tits. I can agree with that, and as most of you know from my prior works, I do tend to end things that way… so that works out well.

As for the new polls – there are two once again. The first asks which of my three current “lesser” main characters (aka – main and recurring, but less frequent at the moment) you like best, and the second asks if you check public posts on Patreon pages that you don’t subscribe to. Yes, I know Belle is much older than the other two options – which are both new for this year, and Belle also has a section in the “Characters” page already… but there is no getting around that at this point. I do want to write “Characters” bits for Delfina and Nylavi whenever I can get to that… but I don’t think that will be for a while still – we will see what happens in the coming weeks. I just wonder how popular they are comparatively at this point

Also, as mentioned in the title of this post and the first bit – I am once again running a special offer on my Patreon page, the details are below! Otherwise, I will be back in a week or so with some kind of status update.

*This special offer runs from June 3, until the end of July, 2020.*
With this special offer, any tier pledge can get one free bonus mini-set of your choice (per month) from the following selection:
$2 tier – Any mini-set from the first 20!
$8 tier and above – Any mini-set from my first 50!!!
Check my mini-set master catalog to see what mini-set you would like, here: ​https://redleatherart.com/wp/?page_id=2758​
*You have to send me a private message on Patreon after you sign up, and let me know which mini-set you want in order to get anything.*
I will then send you a download link as soon as I can – likely within a day or so.

So if you would like to support my assorted works, and/or perhaps get access to some of my paid content, then check out my Patreon page!: https://www.patreon.com/redleatherart

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! πŸ˜€

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…)

Start of 2020 commission sale!

Hi again. Still working on those remaining mini-set renders… I had a couple to fix today, and there are still a few more left to go; along with assorted delays from the weather-triggered migraines that I get, I am still not sure when this will be done. (The weather here has flipped from 30F to 75F in three days… and then went back – so it’s basically the worst thing for me; I couldn’t do anywhere near as much as I’d hoped over the weekend.) I will get those done as soon as I can though – and finally send out the remaining patreon rewards once that is finished, but in the mean time I wanted to post a small status update (it had been a week or so since my last one here) and let you all know about my new commission sale to help kick off the start of a the new year, 2020!

Since Valentines day is a month away, I am going ahead and starting a sale on related commissions now – the two sale categories are below:

  • Couples! (M/F or F/F, futa is fine too – monsters/creatures do also count) – 25% off

  • Solo female pinups! – 20% off

Warning: The couples discount is for couples only – which is to say two subjects, no more. Also, these sales do still stack with other discounts – such as my repeat customer discount as well as any Patron discounts that you may have. (These sales will also be taken into consideration for any Patreon commission tier pieces.) One final thing, and as before – these sale discounts cannot take a commission price below the base price for the tier, but they can get you quite a bit more in/with your commission for that same price. πŸ™‚

My commissions page is here, with more details, for those interested (my contact email for commission questions/requests is also on there): https://redleatherart.com/wp/?page_id=1370

This sale will end on February 15th, 2020. Feel free to ask questions if you are wondering if I can/will do a specific commission idea. πŸ˜€

Black friday 2019 gumroad sale!

Hi everyone, I am going ahead and doing a black friday sale on my gumroad page for a little over two days, starting now. The following discount/sale code – “rlablackfriday” should be working now, (I hope/think, let me know if there is an issue with it) and I will disable it on December 1st; it is good for 33% off anything in my gumroad shop. This is a great chance to pick up any older mini-sets/bundles of mine that you might be interested in! πŸ˜€

I did just update my mini-set master catalog on my site to include the two most recent mini-sets, and also added mini-set 58 (the Helenya/tentacles one) to my gumroad page! My gumroad page is here: https://gumroad.com/redleatherart

Other than that, I am still working on the new mini-set preview and I should have that ready soon; so please vote in the polls and check back later this week!

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: [https://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! πŸ˜€

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!

New mini-sets added to gumroad, twitter page!

Hey again. As the title mentions, I just posted a couple new mini-sets onto my gumroad page, here: [https://gumroad.com/redleatherart]. So that should be all caught up now, in terms of mini-sets that will not be available this month; it now includes everything up to the sci-fi/fantasy combo mini-set. (Sorry for the slight delay on posting those, I kind of forgot; as I have been real busy all around – I did also make a couple small fixes to a couple of the listings.) Oh, and I have no idea why gumroad seems to have issues sorting the items on my store page – I have tried to fix it multiple times, but gumroad just wants my stuff in a random order… so that is how it will be. (I do still plan to make the mini-set catalog here as soon as I can, but I think I have a full docket this month as it is… we will see.)

Also, I now have a twitter page! Here: [https://twitter.com/RedLeatherArt] For anyone who uses that, please like/follow/retweet if you can – anything would be helpful. πŸ™‚ I will try to post on that as close as I can to once a day… and do a retweet or two now and then – but who knows how that will work out. (It won’t all be art, there will likely be some random updates or something… we will see how it goes; I am very new to this.) My pixiv page is also coming along nicely – so hopefully more people will see my work!

As for other things – I have several new images for the month planned out already, (New DA/Slushe images are scheduled to be done this month… and I really want to be on time for once due to Halloween.) and I am working on the plan for the anniversary mini-set with Lucia. (I am currently conflicted between two major ideas for it.) However, I am still midway through the renders for the mini-set with Belle and James – and that will likely be another week just to finish that, knowing how these things tend to go with redos and whatever. I did send out the rewards to my $8 patrons already though… as those will not change, and there was at least one new patron that I did not want to make wait for something that did not even apply to them,

All in all, this month should be quite interesting… so please vote in the polls on the right and check back soon!

Status update: 9/19 – New Pixiv page!

Hi again. I just finished the renders for the previous mini-set earlier and sent that out to appropriate patrons of mine – it ended up at 30 images total! I tested out a lot of cum/effect related stuff in here – and even though I did not get to do all that I wanted in the mini-set, it came out nicely; and what I tested worked great overall. (A few minor issues notwithstanding.) So I can definitely use more of these fancy new bits/effects in future renders – which should help out a fair bit.

Anyways… as the title of this post mentions, I now have a Pixiv page – linked on the right over there, and also here: [https://www.pixiv.net/member.php?id=39281626] and I am in the process of uploading several renders to that gallery… but that is limited by the required censorship due to that site being in Japan. (No obvious genitalia/sex without mosaic.) I hope that this will perhaps get a few new people looking at my works, even if what I can post there is very limited. (You also can’t see anything on there without an account, apparently… maybe that’s where DA got their new layout/style from; you know, that “eclipse” thing that pretty much everyone hates.)

My Patreon special offer (free mini-set with mid-tier and up, choose any from my first 36 mini-sets!) [https://www.patreon.com/redleatherart] and my trivia contest up top there are also still going – and nobody has gotten any of the prizes for the contest yet… which I am somewhat surprised by. (The prizes are pretty good considering how little effort this should take – my last contest was a short story contest, which seemed far more involved all around.) I am fairly confident that someone could find all those answers in like… an hour or so, if they tried – half of the questions are basically obvious, and I even gave one question worth of leeway. (You only need 22 correct.) I guess I will wait a bit more and see what happens… not that I have much choice.

So… in other news I have had assorted real life complications eating up more of my time than I would prefer, much of it due to me not having a car anymore – but I hope to have the preview for the next mini-set ready sometime early/mid next week. (I have it all planned out, so it should be straightforward barring any more horrific unforeseen complications.) I do also hope/plan to finally make that mini-set catalog/list on here sometime soon… it feels like I should really have that for several reasons. There may also be a few other things to look forward to in the coming weeks – but nothing is concrete just yet… so definitely check back soon! (Also vote in the polls on the right if you have not yet done that, that mini-set will get made sometime next month – and the poll is currently a tie, which means I will have to break it unless more people vote!)

Anniversary poll is up, as is a new contest!

Hi again – sorry for the delay on this post, but I had a lot to work on to put into all this; particularly because I changed my idea for the contest at the last minute two days ago. (I was going to do another, albeit slightly different writing contest; but I decided against that for the moment…) I did also just post two brand new images to my slushe/DA pages – in addition to the Angels and Demons 4 one I posted a couple weeks back. Just a quick reminder though – I have a special offer going on my Patreon page; where you can get one of my older mini-sets from 36 and before for free (per month) along with the regular rewards for the $8 and up tiers!!! This offer will continue until the end of October – so you could get two bonus mini-sets in total! If you decide to take advantage of this special offer, just sign up for an applicable tier and send me a private message on Patreon telling me which mini-set you want. There is also the anniversary commission sale of course, with different %s off for a few select categories, detailed a few posts below this one. πŸ™‚

As for the old polls – there were not many votes again for whatever reason… for the invested poll, the only vote was for very invested, which is always nice to hear. The other poll asked about summer themed images/sets – and the only votes seemed to favor those… which is expected, and nice, so you may want to check the one new image I posted to DA/slushe!

In regard to the new polls, there are two again… one is the obvious anniversary poll; asking which of the three remaining girls should star in this year’s anniversary mini-set. However – things will be at least slightly different this time; by which I mean that the effort I put forward into the mini-set will be based on the total votes in the poll. If nobody wants to take the two seconds to vote, then there is no real reason for me to waste several hours making a free mini-set off of it. So more votes will mean better results – but only up to a point, obviously. (It is not going to be over a dozen or so total, no matter how many votes there are.) Hopefully this will lead to more than one or two votes this time… but we will see what happens. The other poll just asks what your thoughts are about the new cum look I tried out in the recent (60th) mini-set preview, so definitely let me know about that also; as I think it is better, and will likely stick with that unless people just hate it for some reason.

So… to get to the part of this post that people are probably more interested in – I have posted a new contest, the details of which are here: https://redleatherart.com/wp/?page_id=2691. It is a trivia contest – with 23 questions regarding assorted aspects of my work over the years, spanning the whole thing in one way or another. If you can answer 22 out of 23 questions correctly, you get to pick one of the five prizes from the prize pool – which includes awesome prizes like: a free custom commission, a free standard commission, three free mini-sets of your choice from 30 or before, one free mini-set of your choice from 40 or before, and a free copy of SST. Obviously some prizes are better than others – but that is how prize tiers generally are. (Five prizes for the fifth anniversary… it just seemed to make sense.) I also tried to not make it that hard… since it is the first contest of this type that I have tried; if it proves successful/popular, future contests like it will certainly be harder.

Definitely check all that out… and I will be back next week with some sort of update – I have a bunch of stuff to finish in the mean time. I may also have more stuff in store a bit further on… so we will just have to see what happens. (Again, if people show interest, that would make quite the difference.)
