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! 😀

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 (firstname.lastname@example.org) 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…)
