Hey again. It has been a while since my last post, but for good reason; I went over the entire game last weekend and re-balanced pretty much everything, meaning that it is actually good enough to leave beta now! (I know I said it would be another month before, but I was not planning to do a full re-balance and wanted to avoid it if possible, but for assorted reasons I just did it.) Everything I wanted in the base game is included except one thing in particular I wanted to include that I could not get working in the way I wanted; but if I figure that out in the coming weeks I can always update the game and add it back in. There is so much stuff in this game I cannot even begin to list it all here, but check the tags for an idea of what is involved. (That tag list of content types is not all inclusive, just FYI.) I have posted a handful of event previews before, and some of those are re-posted below along with one new one. The game itself is available to my patrons, at the $8 tier and above. Things actually got pushed forward for once… shocking, I know. Preview images and other info after the break due to this post being massive. Continue reading
Hi again! So the not so mini-set for my mid level patrons this month is sort of done; I say sort of because I stopped at eleven images… (I was aiming for ten) but I almost certainly will add something more after this. I had to stop myself from going further at the moment, but I want to come back and put in one or two more images if I can get the time before this gets sent out. This is also a story set as well; so each image has a clean and story version to it. The base idea for this set is that Zayla plays with two of her male slaves (a young elven guy and an older human bandit) for a bit of a change. I actually don’t think I have ever even shown one of Zayla’s male slaves before… at least one that isn’t a monster; so this is rather significant.
I think it came out really well and as noted, I like it enough to want to do more; but I really have other stuff I need to get on to right now. (I want to make sure i get at least one of the of the missing events done for the game this month… preferably two.) The set has the sort of content you would expect from a MMF threesome; but check the tags for details, I think I got everything. This one was actually kind of rough to do since I kept hitting the texture limit for the scene and had to repeatedly edit things down a bit to get it to render; but I think it was worth it in the end. I decided to only post one preview for now since it didn’t seem fair to post more than one publicly… but I might post another if I add a lot after this; so I may come back and edit this post to add in another preview. (The one I am currently thinking of posting is one of the exposition images that occurs before the below one though.) EDIT 7/1: Added that other preview image, which is also on my DA page. Regardless, this will get sent out to appropriate patrons when rewards go out early next month along with previous mini-sets from #26 and up.
As usual, if you want to support my work on all of this stuff and maybe even get access to these mini-sets and/or future polls (remember, the topic of this story set was chosen by a patreon poll), check out my Patreon page: https://www.patreon.com/redleatherart. Anything and everything put forward really helps; both in terms of support and motivation.
Hey. I was hoping to get the new DA images done by today but for assorted reasons that doesn’t look likely, so instead here is the free release of RTL chapter 11. I consider this chapter to be the climax of the arc; and as I think I said previously, the final chapter is more of an epilogue; a remnant of the story plan from back when I made story sets double issues. It was left in to wrap things up, give some closure for the non-permanent characters, and lead into the next arc. As mentioned before, this is the second to last free release for a fairly long while; assuming that there even will be any more after RTL ends. I need to finish the game before starting the city story arc, which will take a few months still and once those start to get done, free releases will be a year later at the minimum as things stand; I am still debating even doing free releases at all past this. I currently have over twenty full image/story sets available for free; and I think that is more than enough of a preview. If I had any real interest and/or support for all this, I would just give things out for free as I made them; unfortunately, for whatever reason neither of those has happened. So I have little choice but to change things around and see if that improves anything.
If you like my work and want to help me make more of it, please check out my Patreon page; more support means I can spend more time on my work for this project; and any interest, comments, votes, and/or support all help motivate me. https://www.patreon.com/redleatherart
So check back later this week for the new DA content, and with luck an update on the state of the game. Below are the original RTL 11 previews re-posted for convenience. Anyway, here is the download link for RTL 11, the password is still redleatherart.
Hey. This is a bit later than I’d hoped, but here is the public preview of this month’s Patreon mini-set! The mini-set itself features Karen (in her original outfit!) meeting a group of clients in an alley by the docks and servicing them. The mini-set is five images, though I would like to add a final one if I can find the time next week. In regard to the poll on the right, things are shaping up a bit better, but more votes would be appreciated; it is a vote for the topic of a free mini-set after all, I would think people would want to vote on that.
As far as the animation goes, I have been working on it but I hit a slight issue that may be something I just cannot fix. I will look into this more tomorrow, but I may have to go to plan B for the animation if I can’t fix this in a way I am happy with. Either way, I should have that situated in the next few days and the preview posted sometime early next week. Side note, there will be another vote for the Patreon mini-set topic next month, just in case anyone is thinking of signing up. So if you want access to all the mini-sets I have done so far (there are over 20 assorted mini-sets currently available), the small VN I made, early access to my story sets, or just want to help support my work, check out my Patreon page! https://www.patreon.com/redleatherart
Hey! As the title suggests, RTL 11 is finally done(ish). I say ish because today has been an absolute mess for me; what I thought would be a quick and easy fix of one thing this morning turned into an eight hour mess I barely got out of. I had noticed an issue in one image earlier that I wanted to fix, but apparently this was just a bigger, more noticeable example of a consistent problem that affected over half the set in some way. I only noticed these small examples of this today, and despite all my best efforts, for most of eight hours I just could not fix it. I was on the verge of just giving up and posting a “previews delayed” message and trying again tomorrow, when somehow my last idea to try fixed everything. Unfortunately, this means I need to re-render most of the set, but I can do that in the next day or so and it won’t be too bad. I am very happy to finally fix this stupid problem that I have been having; so much so that I almost didn’t mind delaying posting this a day just because I could now fix these issues that were bothering me. (I really hate posting things when I know there is something wrong with them.) The last few hours or so were spent re-rendering the preview images, just so I could post this today if at all possible. [EDIT: Apparently I forgot to put the total images on here, so just FYI this set is 46 images; each with a clean and story version.]
Regardless, the previews are below. I really like this set and things get really kinky and fun around the midway point for obvious reasons. I may or may not have messed something small up somewhere, as I was at the end of my rope hours ago and I have no idea how I am still going. As previously mentioned, I will get back on this tomorrow and re-render/fix the other issues. I also am considering adding a bunch of new tags as there are many things included both here and elsewhere that I feel should possibly be noted. Quick side note, I will go over the poll either tomorrow or the day after and post at least one new poll. Anyway, here is the obligatory link to my Patreon page, where the full set will get sent out to appropriate patrons in a week or so when I sent out my reward messages. Anything and everything put forward really helps in many ways!
Hi again, Here is the public preview of RTL chapter 11; along with some tags for an idea of some of what will be included in this set. (But not all.) I am still fixing some minor things and adjusting the lighting before doing most of the final renders; so I still hope to have this done around the end of the week. There is still time to vote in the poll as well, so get on that if you haven’t already for some reason. The top voted item will get an additional/extended scene in the final chapter of RTL when I make it in September. (Other high voted things might get worked in to some degree as well, as mentioned previously.)
EDIT 7/30: I was going to post the final previews today, but there is at least one thing I need to re-render and two other small things I need to fix in addition to finishing the general postwork. This wouldn’t be an issue except I had a bunch of real life things that came up earlier that required me to be out getting parts and then fixing stuff, and only recently finished that all up. Unfortunately, I do not think that I have enough time today to get everything done; it may still happen, but it is unlikely.
Hi again! First thing to note is that I have lost a lot of time this week to having some kind of spring flu. I felt crappy when I re-uploaded that one image a few days ago, but I never thought it would get as bad as it did. Long story short. I haven’t slept in two days and I still feel really shitty and can’t focus at all really; so I haven’t finished the first place contest entry yet. I am hoping this clears up by the weekend, but I have to wait and see. Don’t forget to vote in the new polls on the right!
Anyway, here is the free release of RTL 7, as noted in the title. The set features James and Zayla as shown in the previews below the download link. (The password is still redleatherart) Remember to check out my Patreon page and consider supporting me if you like my work and/or want access to it early (among other things)! https://www.patreon.com/redleatherart
Hi, sorry for the semi-late update, but this last week was really busy and I had no time for all this until the last few days. The main set still needs some work but I did get the mini-set done yesterday, a preview image is below. The set revolves around Lucia “playing” with a random traveler who passes by. The mini-set is fairly oral focused, with most of the content images being of Lucia sucking his cock (with close ups); but there is a special image at the end which is different, although the tags sort of give it away. The mini-set is currently six images, and will be set out at the start of next month to applicable patrons on my Patreon (along with all the other mini-sets, this is the 19th one; and a few are full size story sets!). Also do keep in mind that there will be TWO Patreon polls next month, one for all patrons (about the next main set) and one for the $15+ patrons (about that month’s mini-set.
In other news, I came across some information regarding one setting in Octane that I never touched until now; long story short, there is a small chance that I have had this setting wrong this entire time. (But it’s fixed now.) I have yet to totally confirm that this does what I have read that it is supposed to do, but it does seem to so far; the main set will really be the gauge though. More votes in the polls here are appreciated as well; they are going well but more votes is almost always a good thing.
EDIT 3/25: I am mostly done with renders for RTL 9, but I still have all the composition/editing to do and I really want to go back and add one small scene; but I will likely wait and go back for that after finishing the core set as this has already taken longer than I wanted. (Though I think it came out really good and is well worth it.) I am going to try really hard to get previews posted this weekend, tomorrow at the earliest I would think.
Hey again. RTL chapter 7 is finally done; including a few variations, each version (clean, story) is 52 images! Granted, about a third of that is plot related, but still I think it is impressive; and this is my largest set to date. The general story of the set revolves around an accidental meeting between Zayla and James, and the rough sex that results from that. This set also features many attempts at new, artier things as well; such as better lighting and different camera angles. There are also my first attempts at making X-ray style cut in images, which I think turned out a lot better than I was expecting; one preview of that is included below. I know it looks a bit odd just tacked on as a rectangle like that, but I spent a few hours trying different ways of working it in and nothing really looked any better that would work for each image with this alternate version; (there are six of them in the set) so I just decided to leave it this way, as it is more uniform and I think it looks fine as it is. I am still fiddling with a few images in the set in terms of postwork, just to try and get a few things looking a little better. I feel that this set is my best so far in many ways; it is the most effort I have put into one set so far and the best I can currently do in most respects.
Below are four preview images for this new set, (two clean, two story) the complete set will be sent out to appropriate Patrons on my Patreon page each month after payments clear until it gets released free here; although I still have not decided when that will be from now on. I am currently leaning toward six months at the minimum, but more on that whenever I go over the polls. If you want access to this new set and others early, check out my Patreon page and support me! https://www.patreon.com/redleatherart I am also now limiting the story preview images to early in the set so that the ending/progression is not so obvious in future sets anymore.
In other news, I will also go over the polls in the next few days, post new polls as well as explain a few of my future plans for some things. There will be a public preview of this month’s Patreon mini-set posted tomorrow. Any comments/feedback on the new set would be appreciated.
Hey. Below is the early public preview image of RTL chapter seven, working title: “Caught in a Corner”. As you can see it will feature Zayla getting caught in a rather compromising position by one of the intruders in her lair. (The tags on this post hint at what I plan to include in it, but are not necessarily final.) It will
almost assuredly definitely run well into next month as I am still recovering from my various health issues and am absolutely not going to push it and risk anything getting messed up again. As the post title also suggests, I have also posted two new, if plain preview images from RTL 6 on DA (due to DA rules/most group standards) as well as two three totally new images!
Important side note here: I may extend the short story contest, I am still undecided on this; but I think it is very likely to happen to some degree. I personally had horrible issues accessing my own site much of the time for a few weeks back there until the people who host it fixed it for me on their end using methods that will not help other people having issues accessing my site. I am assuming/hoping that the connection problems are the reason for the various drastic drops in visitors some days over the last two weeks; one day in particular around two weeks ago was the worst day for visits here since the week I started hosting this new site. So there is a week and a half left on the contest at the minimum; but likely there will be more time, so get an entry together if you haven’t already! It doesn’t have to be five pages, that is just the maximum. (It also only refers to and/or counts the story itself, not the other parts.)
Also, the polls are still very low; I can only assume nobody really cares about the file format I use and/or better written descriptions of my sets. Anyway, I should have the story-mini-set for my higher end Patrons on Patreon done in the next couple days and a preview posted here. (I got distracted and made the RTL 7 preview/ DA stuff instead the last few days.)
