Hi again all, sorry this is slightly late. I am back with the new polls for September, as well as the results for the prior polls. Last time I asked how people felt about my “Characters” page – and it seems that at least someone likes it… so that’s good, I guess. I also asked last month if anyone would be interested in story sets that continued into multiple parts; and the votes cast seem to think that it could work – which I will keep in mind. Thanks to those that did vote in those… but now we come to the new polls; which are slightly different than what I usually do around this time.
There are once again two new polls on the right of the page… and the first asks how long you prefer your mini-set setups to be, and the second is likely not what a few of you may have been expecting. Previously, I did a special poll around this time of year to decide the subject of that year’s anniversary mini-set, but as I mentioned in another update here last week, I am not doing that this year; since Tabitha is the last girl from the original set that has not yet featured in an Anniversary set, she will feature this time. (Even if I had finished writing up LITC 6 by now, I likely would not offer Onyx as a choice just yet.) However, there is still a second poll up now – but it relates to the mini-sets once more; it asks how you feel about mini-sets featuring new/unique female characters, which is to say, a girl who is not (currently) one of my main/side OCs. (Although two have gone on to become side OCs, and are basically why that term/concept even came about…)
As per usual around this time, more votes will also translate into more effort/images in the Anniversary set – since the base thing will likely be rather small again, due to the low number of vote in recent polls on here… but I will take the votes for this month into consideration as well. So voting in this month’s polls would be advised/appreciated… since everyone gets the Anniversary mini-sets; and I imagine that most people would want more images as well. I might also do a full brief of some sort later in the month, about where I am in regard to certain things, my current plans, etc. (Rather odd situation overall right now, but the world is in an odd situation… so I guess it fits.)
As far as other stuff goes, I did upload mini-set 80 to my gumroad page, for those interested in that. Otherwise, I hope to be back next week with the side renders, and then I am not really sure what else I will have the time/energy for. The Seventh Anniversary mini-set will likely get started/done in early October, at the earliest; as I still have several other things that I really want to get done. (Like LITC 6) Either way, I plan to be back in a week or so with another update if nothing else. August was awful for me – but so far, September looks to be turning out much better already.
As usual, if by some chance anyone else out there would actually 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 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; 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
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/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.
