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
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.
