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
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.
