Previous batch done – moving on to the new mini-set.

Hi everyone. Sorry for the delay with all this – but my last surgery was a bit of a mess; and they were several hours late… and I have been a bit out of it since then for assorted reasons. However, I did manage to get the previous mini-set renders done – meaning the solo Lucia pinup one. It ended up at 32 images total, but there are a lot of alternates in there… and even as limited as it is, I still really like it and think it came out really nice. 🙂 (This one is also more in tune with what I had originally planned/intended these mini-sets to be way back whenever… before I somehow ended up making 60+ image mini-sets with elaborate/complex scenes, as has recently been the case many times.) As usual, my Patreon patrons get the second preview a month early, and it will get posted here late next month. I did also go ahead and post the second preview for the December mini-set, with Belle – in the original post for that, and in the master catalog… so do check that out as well! 🙂

I think things are on track for something else to get done next month; but we will see what happens. I had hoped to do it this month back in January – but then I found out that I needed to get all this surgery… and then it was all I could do to do the side renders and mini-sets this month. More votes in the polls would be nice – and I will be back to redo and go over those in a few days… I will likely let those go another day or two extra since February is so short.

So… check back tomorrow for that new mini-set preview; I am going to do all I can to get that finished in time… but it is going to be messy. (A lot of time lost to real life/medical stuff, and February has fewer days to begin with.) Also, for anyone new here – do check out my assorted free content and/or galleries, all are readily accessible up top! 😀

To conclude this update – if anyone out there would 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 other 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

Status update: 2/22

Hey again. I just wanted to stop by and give a small status update here on the site before I have one last surgery done tomorrow – which may keep me from doing much for a day or two. I am still working on the mini-set renders; since things have been messy this month with all the assorted real life stuff I have had to do, but I should still be on track to get this done in time. I have also gotten several of the revamps/updates to my characters done, which helps clear the road for future content (although I do still need to do two other ones in particular in preparation for the next story set) – notably some new “main” content… which I am hoping that I will finally get time for next month. (I had a ton of crap to deal with that I was not expecting at the end of January… and February has fewer days to begin with. March should be pretty clear though – and no side renders or anything.)

Also, I did attach a revisit/alternate to that Helenya pinup I made like six months back, with inverted/full lighting… which people seem to like, so here that is on the main site as well. 🙂 I will be back as soon as I can be with the other mini-set preview in a few days, as well as the new mini-set preview… but expect that to be on Friday, Saturday, and/or maybe even Sunday. As always, I will do the best I can. Quick final note, more votes in the polls would be appreciated as well.

As these updates usually end with – if anyone out there would 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 other finished story sets, and larger versions of the completed animations I have made/posted, and/or the full games I have also made.

Happy Valentines day – two new side renders posted on DA/slushe/Patreon!

Hi again everyone! I am still technically on time with this, and I think/hope you all will enjoy at least one of them – depending on your tastes and/or idea of what Valentine’s day should be. 🙂 Go check those out if you haven’t already – and do keep in mind that there are a bunch of other renders that I have made available totally free; the side renders are on my DA/slushe pages still (at least until I get a side render gallery made here) – but all the main content and older story sets are here, and available for free download up top! 😀

In terms of a status update… I still have a couple doctor appointments this coming week – so we will see how things go… but the last few things took more out of me than I thought; so things may run late again – we will see what I can manage. I have also been going over my characters and fixing/redoing a bunch of stuff that I have to do since I moved my content library, as I mentioned a while back… but as I said before, I have needed to go over all this anyway – so that works out. More votes in the polls here would really be nice though.

So anyways… if anyone out there would 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 other finished story sets, and larger versions of the completed animations I have made/posted, and/or the full games I have also made.

February 2021 polls.

Hey. So it is time for the January poll review… and the new polls. There was only one vote in each poll last month; which is extremely depressing… but at least they were both fairly positive. (They were in favor of a side render gallery here, and liked my previous short story.) I will see about doing that side gallery soon(ish) – bit it will likely be a while; the same is true of another short story, but mostly because I have a bunch of other stuff lined up to do already. Also, I did add the newest retired mini-set (#73, the Xan/bandit queen one) to my gumroad page, here: https://gumroad.com/redleatherart?sort=newest

As for new polls – I put two new ones… the first asks about what alignment of female character you prefer in adult scenes; and the second is a revisit of a very old poll, asking how dark you like your adult content. I had planned on having a special poll to decide the subjects of a bonus (and almost certainly explicit) couple render, for Valentines day; but I am not going to bother with that now. Not sure why nobody wants to vote in the polls (maybe it was the subject matter – but not sure why people wouldn’t be interested in a side render gallery) – people are viewing this page, and it takes literally only seconds to vote… but it is what it is, I guess. More votes would really be appreciated – I don’t think that is much to ask for.

I will see what ends up happening later this month, in terms of other stuff; but I have a handful of doctor appointments/procedures in the next couple weeks – to follow up on one yesterday… which is a fair bit of time I won’t have available. As per usual, I will do the best I can – but things seem fairly messy already… and my motivation is quite low. I am really going to try and get the side renders done in time for the 14th, though – so check back in a week or so for that. There is also all sorts of free content up top, for anyone that is new to my site. 🙂

As I usually end posts with – if anyone out there would 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 other finished story sets, and larger versions of the completed animations I have made/posted, and/or the full games I have also made.

Prior mini-set renders almost done, and second preview from November mini-set posted!

Hey once more. I know this is a bit late again, but that is just how things have been during most of this virus mess for the past year – it is what it is… and at the very least I am consistent. I have learned a lot from this latest mini-set I have done – and much of that is related to the fancy/excessive skin shaders/lighting that I am trying out; primarily in the later parts of scenes, where it makes more/any sense. Things definitely look fancy… (and people seem to like it… and/or are just attracted to shiny things, like cats; hard to know the reason) but it makes renders even slower than before; which is somewhat of a problem, given my limited machine and low budget. (I also made several minor mistakes in here… that all needed re-rendering/fixed, which did not help.) Long story short though – I should have the Belle/Luscious mini-set done and sent out tomorrow sometime; but I wanted to just post that other preview for the Faye/Tentacles mini-set today… just to space things out a little better. So, check out the master catalog up top and/or the main post for that Faye mini-set down below to see that second preview – and I will be back before the end of the month with the preview for the new January mini-set!

Also, as previously stated in my last post here, please vote in the polls on the right; there are not many votes for whatever reason… and more would really be appreciated – especially since the polls end in like a week.

Sooo… if anyone out there would 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 other finished story sets, and larger versions of the completed animations I have made/posted, and/or the full games I have also made.

Status update: 1/20

Hey again. I just wanted to stop by with a small status update for the site here; even though I am still working on the prior mini-set renders. It does seem like a lot of people liked the new Helenya render I made recently; which is very nice to see – even though I know I liked it. 😀 (It is already the most popular render I have posted on DA for a fair while now; and it has not even been up that long.) I hope my other upcoming renders will be as well received… but we will see how that works out when we get there. I do plan to make some new side renders next month – likely at least one for Valentine’s day… so we will have to see what happens around then. 🙂

In regard to other things – more votes in the polls would really be appreciated; there aren’t many votes right now for whatever reason… plus, both of those polls are important, and will likely have pretty direct results. So if you have not voted in the polls on the right yet, please do so! Otherwise, I will be back in a week or so with another update and/or the new mini-set preview from last time. The new mini-set still needs a lot of work to finish the remaining bits; but I will see how it all works out – it may still need even more time than that, especially since these renders are going very slowly due to all the fancy lighting and such in the xmas elves scene.

As per usual… if anyone out there would 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 other finished story sets, and larger versions of the completed animations I have made/posted, and/or the full games I have also made.

Early 2021 Patreon changes, and that new special Helenya render!

Hi again everyone – I know this is a bit later than I was planning/hoping for… but I think the renders (I made a nude alternate, because why not) below will help justify that. 😀

First off, though – the Patreon changes; which are not major, but I am hoping that they will help a bit… especially as things improve for everyone in the coming year. I changed the two mid-high tiers on my Patreon to now focus on giving old mini-sets as an extra reward… with the option of getting a standard commission instead, for the second highest. All the tiers have been renamed as well – but that was also a long time coming. The main change that I hope will go a long way is that I have put in a special, fallback extra to the $8 tier (and only that tier); which will be available any month where I do not post a new story set, or whatever to that tier… which has been the case for well over a year by this point. I know I really should have put this in sooner – but everything just went off the rails during this past year or so… and it sort of just got buried under everything else that I wanted/planned/tried to do. Plus, I honestly have been planning/trying to do the next story set for six months or so now; but I just never could find the time. That special, extra new fallback being that $8 Patrons can choose any one mini-set from the given selection to receive that month, as a bonus of sorts. (The current selection is my first 50 mini-sets… but that will likely expand over time; and/or have temporary exceptions/specials.) I think this is how things will be for a while, though… but there may be some minor edits in the coming months – there is no way to tell just yet.

For a bit of context as to why this special render (and the nude alternate) took a while – I chose to go ahead and do something that is as dangerous as it is boring… and yet very necessary; which is going over all the materials on my characters. The primary reason for this is my moving my runtime folder to a new drive, and that fucking up all of my previously saved Octane materials. The other part of it is a long and confusing story for people who don’t do 3D work, but effectively several (mostly minor) things on many of my characters have been improperly configured for a while now… (I have noticed several little things over the past year or so – and fixed them when it was a problem; but now I know what two things in particular tend to be causing it… and somehow it was just auto-configured wrong) and I have to edit their main character files to fix it. However, this runs the risk of something unintended/weird happening – and/or something getting corrupted. (I know that sounds silly, but I have actually had it happen twice now already – and I didn’t even go fiddling with the files at the time… it just happened on it’s own somehow; and the second time, I had to effectively remake the character to fix it… it was truly corrupted.)

As Helenya won the special poll for the first promo render of 2021, I did her first… after backing up her main files, of course. I think everything went quite well – and even though this took a fairly long time, it is simply necessary to finally go through everything – and make some minor adjustments too. Looking at the resulting renders after her corrections, I think it was worth it… but I admit part of this is me understanding advanced lighting a bit better than I used to years ago as well. So… things should be slightly different, and yet overall much better in upcoming renders – and that includes the xmas elf mini-set I am still working on. (Which will be a while still.) Those special renders are below, so check those out! I hope you all enjoy them. 😀

Sooo… if anyone out there would 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 other finished story sets, and larger versions of the completed animations I have made/posted, and/or the full games I have also made.

First post of 2021 – new polls, and results from last time.

Hey, hey. I am here with the first post of 2021 – and some cool new polls; as well as the results from last time! Last month, I had a special poll posted – the clear winner of which was Helenya, with five votes – somewhat surprisingly! (Usually Zayla wins, with Helenya and/or Salune close behind – but this was somewhat of a surprise.) Zayla came in second with three votes, and then Salune, with two – with most of the other characters tied for forth, getting one vote after that. So, I will make that new special render with Helenya sometime soon and post that for everyone – not sure exactly when yet. The other poll from last time asked about your art preferences, and unsurprisingly, most people prefer NSFW and/or explicit – which is also generally my preference as well, so that works out.

As for the new polls, one is the usual feedback poll about my latest short story from a couple month back – “Zayla’s Nightmare”; and the other asks if you think I should make a side render gallery here on the site, with most of my side renders from DA/slushe in it. Again, I consider these polls important, and votes would be greatly appreciated – as both will have considerable effects; so please vote in the polls on the right.

Other than that, I did post mini-set 72 to my gumroad page… that was the recent modern/cosplay mini-set one, for those who don’t know/remember; so if that interests you, it is now available to purchase separately. I am still also working out the Patreon changes I have planned – but that is also slightly complicated for assorted reasons… although I will work something out. I hope things will get/be better this year for my work… but we will see what happens. There are so many things I want to do, but I just don’t have the time/support/interest to actually do it all at the moment. Hopefully I will be able to restart work on the story sets soon though – as those have basically been on hold since I was first planning to make that sequel to SST… which also later got effectively put on hold for different, yet somewhat similar reasons. However, since I have nothing but my own opinion to go on, I think I will go ahead and try and do more story sets whenever I can. Primarily because working on games is far more draining/stressful, and I can’t even remember what i was doing with ZST now because it has been so long since I did anything of consequence for it in terms of coding. That, and I still have one big mess in particular to clean up whenever I seriously get back into game work… and I am not looking forward to that. I get almost no real feedback regarding my work regardless, so I will just do what I prefer right now. I may also try to do a new animation next month – if everything works out.

Anyway – if anyone out there would 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 other 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.)

Patreon rewards sent, extra preview posted, new mini-set preview soon.

Hey again. As you can probably guess from the title of this post, I just sent out main rewards to my Patreon patrons, and posted the second public preview for mini-set 74 (the Zayla/Nightmare Salune one) back in the original post for it, the short story page, and the master catalog up top! I also updated the catalog to include this newest mini-set, (the Faye/tentacles one) which came out to 50 images total – and I really like it. I didn’t get to put the final/end scene in this one, as is usually the case; but I think this is actually fine without it – it might even work better that way in this instance. Hard to say if this is the best tentacle mini-set I have done so far, as that kind of depends on your tastes to a degree… but if this is not the best one, then I think it is definitely in the top three, and was a lot of fun to do. As always, I have posted the second preview for that on my Patreon for my patrons to have early access to – and it will get posted here in a month or so.

In regard to other stuff, the polls on the right could always use more votes… especially since that will lead to at least on special render for everyone, featuring the winner of that poll. (Current results in there are a bit unusual as well, I must say.) Anyway – I will be back in a day or two with the first public preview of the new mini-set for December, so do check back for that! In the mean time, I hope you all enjoy the new preview, and make sure to check out my other pages, and follow me on those too! I am also still planning to update/change a few things on my Patreon page next month… (notably the higher tiers that nobody has been overly interested in) which will hopefully interest a few people – so be on the lookout for that too; but that likely won’t be fully updated until at least a couple days into January. That end of 2020 commission sale is still going on, by the way – so check the post on that below, if that interests you.

So, as per usual – if anyone out there would 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 other 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 can spare – which isn’t much at all for several months now, I admit.)

New Xmas side renders posted, end of 2020 commission sale!

Hey again. Sorry this is a bit late, but we had that big winter storm come through the Northeastern US mid-last week, and that pushed everything in my schedule back a bit. (I had migraines almost every day last week due to that – and still not doing great, really.) It took a bit longer than I had hoped, but at least these were done a few days before Xmas, and therefore in plenty of time. Go ahead and check out my Slushe/DA pages for those new side renders, if you haven’t already; I am in the process of posting them now, but I assume they should already be posted by the time anyone reads this. Also, on that note – Merry early Xmas, Happy Holidays, etc. – just in case I don’t get to post around then as planned. I also want to remind everyone that there is a special poll over there on the right – to decide who stars in a bonus image I will make early next year… so do vote in those polls over there as well if you have not done so already. (More votes, better results – possibly even multiple results.)

And as a bit of an added bonus, I decided to go ahead and have an end of 2020 commission sale for the next couple weeks, with 20% off any commission above the base price – (20% because 2020, sale because 2020 will soon be over) and this does combine with my Patron/repeat customer discounts. (But this does not stack with or apply to any sort of special/batch deal price… for the two people that have those.) So, if someone out there was thinking of getting a commission from me, but waiting for another sale or something – here you go. Custom commissions start at $55 – but it totally depends on what you want… full details and prices are here – https://redleatherart.com/wp/?page_id=1370

As of right now, this commission sale will end on January 4th, 2021. (So, two weeks from today, a bit after new years.) However, I may extend it if I feel like it for whatever reason. Feel free to ask questions if you are wondering if I can/will do a specific commission idea/character – I am rather flexible in terms of what I can/will do, and I try to reply quickly whenever possible. 😀 Also yes, I am backed up quite a bit right now in terms of render time/ability due to needing to finish the mini-set renders, but any orders placed (i.e. details confirmed and paid for) before the sale ends will get the discount; even if I am not able to start on it before the sale ends. (Not sure when I will actually be able to start on any new commissions… but likely not before 2021, the way things are going.)
